It seems like things don't work out well when westerners involve themselves in middle eastern politics. we keep doing it, though.
It's not compassionate, but I often think we should but out and let things run their course. Things will get bad, then maybe sort themselves out. In the meantime, people will be killed and abused, and all manner of bad things, but we can't solve other people's problems with a temporary occupation. Compassion interferes with progress, but there is no perfect solution.
And, speaking as an American, we have enough inhumanity, and abuse, and religious fanatics, etc, here at home we could be trying to abolish.
