Don't rush to judgement
The report of Yazidis being buried alive by the iState may turn out to be sound, but I shall wait for independent confirmation. There is history of hatred being whipped up against nations or groups by means of invented atrocities for the purpose of justifying a war - witness this article. As Robbins pointed out there, there is always the danger of a backlash, and there is more than enough attested evidence that Kurds, Christians and other sects including non-Sunni Muslims are in great danger unless we help them to help themselves.
