When it comes to the middle east you can pretty much go "Good thing <insert president> <did a thing>" for every president going back to the realization the Middle East had oil and America had internal combustion regardless of party. The middle east is America's unending sunken cost fallacy. Forever trying to fix the problem that arose the last time the US tried to fix a problem there. This time for sure!

Add Russia to the mix and its like catnip to US politicians.

God bless President Assad and his family.
May they live many years and one day regain control of Syria.

When he was in power Christians and other religious minorities had rights and were well protected.

This whole thing between the US and Russia in Syria reminds me of that episode in Kino's Journey where two warring cities fought by seeing who could kill more people in an outside town.

sadly, the only thing worse than a dictator, is the power vacuum left when there is no dictator.

So... 10 buses and 25 jeeps worth of IS fighters poured into Raqqa, Syria from Mosul, Iraq. But not before they killed 58 of their own who were plotting a rebellion.

General William Tecumseh Sherman once said "war is hell". Aleppo just goes to prove that. As if it needed proving again.

But I ask this: What would you have the United States do? Or any country?

Invade Syria? At this point that is what it will take to oust Assad. He's not leaving alive. And then what will happen in Syria? Have The Army put it back together. We saw how well that strategy went in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia.

Maybe set up a no fly zone? Shoot down any Russian planes that try to bomb Aleppo. That will be a fast way to start World War 3. The result of that would be like Aleppo, but everywhere. Everywhere.

Try diplomacy? We tried. It hasn't worked. The cease-fires hold for like seven minutes then one side or the other breaks it.

Sanctions? Those are already in place. They are working soooo well.

Arm the rebels? The same rebels with links to al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups. That worked out really well for Hillary when she did that in Libya. They were nice enough to wait a whole 11 months before turning those weapons back on us. Real stand up guys.

So there's really nothing that can be done about Aleppo. Just keep in mind that the befuddled and inept foreign policy of Obama and Hillary led to this mess and if Hillary is elected we can expect more Aleppos.
