If inaction indicates thought and feeling, the hell that is eastern Aleppo signifies nothing at all in the mind or heart of he who occupies – for 50 more days – the Oval Office. As civilian neighborhoods targeted mercilessly and criminally by the air forces of the Assad regime and Russia become the "one giant graveyard" described by the United Nations humanitarian chief Stephen O'Brien, President Obama remains operationally inert. Nothing good politically can happen in Syria unless and until civilians come off the Russian-Iranian-Assad regime bull's-eye.Does anyone still doubt the value of Daesh to Assad as a useful foil?In the 50 days remaining to it perhaps the Obama administration will find and implement ways – far short of invading and occupying Syria – to complicate and end the free ride for mass murder now enjoyed by the Assad regime and its foreign enablers. Perhaps the record of having protected not a single Syrian inside Syria will be preserved right through noon, Jan. 20, 2017 .At the very least, however, an alibi whose unintended consequence has been to encourage bad actors to do their total worst to defenseless people should now be retired permanently.
