Uncle Sam is in an unenviable position as far as the Middle East conflict is concerned.
With the atrocities committed by ISIS, the US is now blamed for the
loss of innocent Syrian and Iraqi lives by being the initial co-sponsor
of this militant group. The aim was to topple President Bashar al-Assad
who was responsible for the killing of his own people by the thousands
using chemical bombs and ISIS was thought to be a good idea at that time
to topple the regime.
On the other hand, the Americans could
have laid back and said, "This is not our problem", human rights groups
and other nations will step up the criticisms on American human rights
stand. Some will even called it the American hypocrisy.
Well, looks like, DAMNED IF YOU DO AND DAMNED IF YOU DON'T.
