For the United States and its allies, the beginning of wisdom in Syria is to accept and act upon two points.Part one of "Syria at Seven" addresses the geopolitical importance of pushing back against the slaughter of civilians in Syria.As the Syrian regime employs mass homicide to survive politically, as Russia and Iran partake in regime war crimes while professing support for peace initiatives, as the United States uses a Kurdish-led militia to try to finish off Daesh in eastern Syria and as Turkey attacks the very Kurds with whom Washington has allied itself, it is no wonder that Western policy (Daesh aside) boils down to the lowest of common denominators: The Assad regime should, as it slaughters people, refrain from using chemical weapons of deadly toxicity in the process.The United States has no interest in invading and occupying Syria.Nothing good can come of Syria for the "civilized world" if Syrian civilians are left absolutely unprotected on the Assad regime's bullseye.
