Since the end of World War II, the United States has intervened in a series of civil wars only to discover getting caught in the middle of a civil war is the most certain way to get caught in an endless conflict which can only be resolved by those engaged in this war. First, we attempted to resolve the Korean civil war, then we attempted to resolve the Vietnam civil war, later we sought to solve the Afghanistan civil war and then the Iraq civil war. In each case, outside forces were not able to handle internal conflict. During the past few days in Baghdad fourteen died and then 34 died in a Shiite sector of the city.
These failures should make Americans think twice before getting involved in the Syrian civil war. Find a Germany or Japan to fight–and make certain we fight the war alongside allies!
