Just accepting everything that we do militarily because we did good in the past sounds pretty crazy to me
In 2016, US special operators could be found in 70% of the world’s nations, 138 countries – a staggering jump of 130% since the days of the Bush administration
in 2016 alone, the Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs. This means that every day last year, the US military blasted combatants or civilians overseas with 72 bombs; that’s three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day.
The UK has conducted more than 1,200 airstrikes in Iraq and Syria since it became involved - more than any other coalition country bar the United States. In 2016 alone, the US dropped 12,192 bombs in Syria and 12,095 in Iraq, according to the American think tank Council on Foreign Relations
On 13 April 2017, the United States conducted an airstrike and used the largest non-nuclear bomb in its arsenal, the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB), with the goal of destroying tunnel complexes

You suppose Assad will ever be held accountable for killing his own civilians?
I'm curious what your opinion of Assad is? Love him or hate him for slaughtering his own innocent civilians?

You believe Assad hates his own people? Only a madman would do so. I seen many interviews of him and he for sure seems much more real and honest then our leaders, same w Qaddafi but those guys (also of course Saddam) are shown in our media propaganda as the most evil guys ever!
As many as 13,000 people have been killed in Saydnaya since 2011, in utmost secrecy.
Saddam Hussein, the man that America projected before the Iraq invasion as the most dangerous man to be dislodged at any cost, was held in close embrace by the US administration during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s.
