Sheesh! Why would anyone advocate to do the same thing again? It is NOT the business of Western nations to tell other nations what their boundaries should be, who their citizens should be, or what form of government they should use. Leave well enough alone, fools.

Senseless. Boot these folks out of this region to leave them to their own governance. What a waste of 4+ trillion dollars of precious US public’s tax-payer funds and to have brought to un-conceivable grief to both sides!

Amen to a new conference including the U.S., E.U. Russia and reps. of all interested Middle East parties (including militias, even ISIS.). The U.S. has screwed up terribly meddling, destroying governments, even nations, creating chaos and civil wars. The U.S. should offer a U.S> policy of DISENGAGEMENT: cease fire unless fired upon, followed by U.S. VOLUNTARY protective evacuation of threatened populations to nearby Middle Eastern states that will take people in exchange for, say, 3 years of subsidy to accepting governments for subsistence, economic integration and military protection within newly affirmed national boundaries.

But you’ll never hear this from American politicians during campaign season. H. Clinton is as hawkish as any Republican candidate. Is here any hope? I don’t know.

I wrote about the problems in the middle east years ago in a copyrighted best-seller, THE PALESTINE CONSPIRACY and another, SECRET OF EKATERINBURG: THE HOUR-GLASS. The first book written in 1987 but not published until 2004. You did a great piece on a very complicated matter.
