It seems that the only thing we succeeded in across the Obama and Bush years has been to remove secular dictatorships in the Arab world with Islamic fundamentalist groups that are worse by far. Despite their many faults the former dictators maintained some semblance of religious freedom whereas with the new radical Islamists there is no freedom at all. And we’re still at, now in Syria. Brutal as he may be, the Syrian people are far better off with Bashar al-Assad than they are with ISIS.
