The unprecedented combination of political chaos, cross-cutting military confrontations and strategic contradictions in northern Syria reached a record-setting point two days ago.I salute them heartily, for this is a very sensible statement, and would make an excellent policy for any government involved in Syria.The really awkward problem, however, is that McGurk and the American government do not seem to follow their own rhetoric. The U.S. deserves special attention for the chaos-generating militarism that it has pursued for decades – due to its global and regional military reach and destructive impact, and incessantly attacking, sanctioning and boycotting adversaries, while unconvincingly calling for policies of communicating and deconflicting.Most bizarre of all, many people still want the U.S. to increase its military engagement in Syria to bring an end to the fighting. There will be no winners in this terrible series of overlapping wars in northern Syria, only destruction for the Syrian people, and more pain and troubles for their neighbors and the world.
