Egypt

Egypt's military made several airstrikes against Isis because they killed 21 Egyptian Christians. The airstrikes caused Egypt to become deeper involved in the war with Isis. The Egyptian president said "We reserve the right to retaliate." ( www.cnn.com/2015/02/16/middleeast/isis-libya-egyp... ) Egypt is vulnerable to potential counter attacks. The Islamic state may consider Egypt's entry into Libya as a war strategy.  These strikes were highly applauded by Libya's internationally recognized government.
