The war in Syria has raged for years and years now.  The estimates include almost half a million dead and some twelve million displaced both internally and externally.  The Europeans have certainly seen a lot of these refugees but consider what the Jordanians and others have had to deal with. 

The Americans and the Russians continue to grapple with what is happening. They are both now claiming that they want the Iranians out and the media has bit on this.  Frankly, it is ridiculous.  The Iranians are deeply entrenched in the country economically and militarily and have been for decades and decades.  

Further, the Americans are starting to cut funding for the rebuiding. Its extraordinary when we continue to make the same mistakes over and over again.  We have don't this same thing everywhere.  We come in and blow a country to pieces and then walk away leaving it to its own devices with the guarantee that what is left is the perfect cauldron but continued unrest within the country and a staging group for future attacks worldwide.

I appear on I24 International News to discuss.
