The bombing of the hospital run by Doctors Without Borders in Kunduz, Afghanistan, on October 3 is but the latest tragic unintended consequence of a war that no longer has any strategic purpose.

With Russia now involved in the Syrian War — the first act of overseas intervention by any power other than the United States or its immediate allies since the Cold War — the Middle Eastern quagmire threatens to become an abyss. How steep a price will America have to pay for decades of meddling in Middle Eastern wars?

As the Obama administration's strategy of showering U.S. support on “moderate” jihadists in Syria under the guise of fighting the Islamic State continues to blow up in its face, Russian strongman Vladimir Putin is making deals to battle ISIS alongside Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, the Iranian regime, Beijing, and even the Iraqi government installed by Washington. 

The former president of Finland, who served as a senior negotiator among United Nations members early on amid the crisis in Syria, said in a recent interview that the Obama administration and other Western governments ignored a 2012 offer by the Kremlin that could have seen Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad step down. 



The U.S. military has been ignoring the rape of young boys by Afghan allies — even on American military bases — all in the name of cultural sensitivity.
