A New Plan Calls for Safe Zones in Syria — Backed by the U.S. Military
War Is Boring

As awful as the civil war is, taking sides would only make it worse. The suffering in Syria rips my guts out every day, the destruction, the nightmares … but another big intervention in the Mideast would just fuel more hate, more cataclysmic destruction. The only solution can be forcing the warring sides to sit down and divide up the country. Prior to that the whole world should impose an immediate arms embargo, including sanctions against anyone fueling the war (cough*Putin*cough).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
