Two things were made clear by the U.S. exploits in Syria Wednesday:While this is hard to get one's head round, that does not mean the U.S. should get away with its lackadaisical and uncoordinated attacks that murder civilians, or its cumbersome policies that only alienate groups on the ground that are fighting the twin terrors of Daesh and Syrian President Bashar Assad.As long as superpowers and their proxies pursue blinkered policies, Syria can never be rehabilitated.Perhaps the U.S. would be better off airlifting Assad out of Syria, rather than arms and men into it.
