An opinion in the Western press.
I’m sure there are many more ‘opinions’ from differing sides with other outcomes. :shrug:
Small sample of comments, to the ‘opinion’ piece.

Fantasy narrative - the West has never given any support of note to the Syrian rebellion. Obama’s priority from Day 1 has always been, and remains, the Iranian deal in pursuit of a new balance of power in the region that enables the US to step back.
This always looked fairly ludicrous, and its hard to escape the conclusion now his main object is run down the clock until he leaves office.

Ae you banging the drums for war just to support the US desire for “full spectrum dominance”?

What an absolute lie considering the RuAF bombings of ISIS around Kuweires, East Aleppo, Palmyra, and Eastern Homs, all targeting ISIS.

I’ve noticed you’re fairly relaxed about Western Expansionism in the region. in fact you seem to relish it. What’s with the Avatar?
guardians coverage is shameful at best. History will not judge our actions kindly.

The Guardian’s agenda is for some reason, and has for a few years been only about refighting the Cold War. Mysterious business.

“The defeat of anti-Assad rebels who have partially controlled the city since 2012 would leave nothing on the ground in Syria but Assad’s regime and Islamic State.”
It is tragic OK but the anti-Assad rebels are far from a unified force. Most manifest various degrees of Islamofascism.
Keeping Assad in power happens to be the least of the various evils.
If only Assad and ISIS remained, then it would be easier for a combined effeort to deal with ISIS.

Absolutely right. Also note that the Assad government includes Christians and Sunnis as well as people of no religion. The wife of Assad is a Sunni, The Vice President is a Sunni.*
