The Islamic State is the solution.
I suppose the US is responsible for Mubarak getting acquitted, huh?
والله you're out of your element, guy. I'm not interested in your made up stats, opinions, and conpiracy theories regarding American foreign policy motivators. If you want to have a legitimate conversation about current US policy in Sham I'm down but I don't think you can hang because you have no idea what is going on.
Really difficult to answer but I'm not a fan of comparisons like that. The idea that sectarian violence can only be solved by an overdose of sectarian violence is one that I reject. Blaming the "arbitrary boundaries" of colonialism is also a cop out. If you cut up the ME by sectarian communities it would look like a congressional district map. Problems with ME governments, I think, comes from the fear that losing power is a death sentence. In Lebanon the civil war was because the Maronites didn't want to give up the representation in government they were alotted despite the fact that it didn't reflect the population of the country anymore. In Syria, when Asad came to power he consolidated power by creating an officer corps almost completely of Shi'a and 'Alawi. If they weren't so terrified of being oppressed and killed by the other side, they wouldn't be so quick to violence and so brutal in its use.
These wars could be golden opportunities for Shi'a in Iraq to extend a hand to the Sunnis and in Syria for Sunni rebels to recreate the government and ease Shi'a fears. But... that's not going to happen. Iraq has way more of a chance than Syria I think. Syria is going to be irretrievable for a long, long, long time.
Even more difficult to find than unicorn cavalry, they want Sunnis who won't take US guns and turn them on the regime or take them and join Ahrar or Nusra.
