Obama Caves on Syria

Andrew Sullivan: "Well, we don't yet quite know what's in the works - but once you start arming one side of a civil war, you become part of that civil war; the other side may target you; and as this sectarian conflict deepens across the region, the US will be seen as a Sunni power fighting Shiites. I cannot think of a worse policy position for this country - to take stand on the sectarian fault-line of the Muslim world and back one side over another. You think the other side won't notice? You think Americans wouldn't be targeted for this kind of meddling? Let Putin get bogged down in this hell, if he remains so 19th Century he feels he must. But we should have zero interest in that ancient religious dispute; zero."
