Terrorist attacks on civilians, whether the downing over Sinai of a Russian aircraft killing 224 passengers, the horrific Paris massacre claiming 130 innocent lives, or the tragic bombing in Ankara that killed 102 peace activists, are crimes against humanity.West, especially the United States, bears significant responsibility for creating the conditions in which ISIS has flourished.This expanded U.S. military presence was anathema to the core jihadi ideology that the CIA had done so much to foster.Not only was the war itself launched on the basis of CIA lies; it also aimed to create a Shiite-led regime subservient to the U.S. and anathema to the Sunni jihadis and the many more Sunni Iraqis ready to take up arms.The U.N. framework should include an immediate end to the insurgency against Assad that the U.S., Saudi Arabia, and Turkey have pursued; a Syrian cease-fire; a U.N.-mandated military force to confront ISIS; and a political transition in Syria dictated not by the U.S., but by a U.N. consensus to support a non-violent political reconstruction.
