Can the US respond to the crises in Syria and Iraq in time?

One of my favorite news sources is Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). My dad directed me to it in 2014, when I was searching for more reliable and timely reports from the [still] developing situation in Ukraine. It’s a great resource for anyone seeking excellent reporting from parts of the world typically overlooked by much of the media.

The Deadly Consequences Of Ugly U.S. Politics” by James Miller points out the dangers of the US delaying action on Syria and Iraq. Both situations are incredibly messy (and getting worse), but that’s all the more reason something needs to be done sooner rather than later. There are no easy answers here and the next president faces hitting a point of no return.
