The Many Mideast Solutions – By Tom Friedman, The New York Times

 

Tom Friedman, doesn’t say what he is for, but he infers an enormous respect for Barack Obama’s caution and reticence in diving into a quagmire that is getting worse, not better.

“Meanwhile, a no-state Syria — a Syria that Bashar al-Assad and his Russian and Iranian backers only partly control — will be a chest wound bleeding refugees into Europe. I am certain that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is deliberately bombing anti-regime Syrians to drive them into Europe in hopes of creating a rift in the European Union, strain its resources and make it a weaker rival to Russia and a weaker ally for America.”
