It didn’t have to be this way. Two years ago, many foreign policy experts were arguing that swift and surgical intervention by the United States could quell a number of potentially disastrous developments, while others warned that we should stay totally out of what was ultimately a local conflict.

President Obama shook an indignant finger at the genocide in Syria, invoking the Holocaust and promising, “never again.” That was more than a year and thousands of deaths ago. He said it wasn’t a matter of if, but when, Assad would go, yet we’ve done little to either stanch the bloodshed or bring about a resolution to the conflict.
