Be aware of the wrong decisions

Reader comment on item: When Sunni and Shiite Extremists Make War

Submitted by Stergios Bakas (Sweden), Jun 5, 2013 at 09:15

Excellent your comment on Bret Stephens article and especially your criticism on western world's huge deficit on moral standings. Unfortunately, cynicism is very widespread among great nations, although our modern collective historical experience taught us that it has produced only disasters. I think, also, that the late decision taken by EU's foreign ministers to sell weapons to Syrian rebels is a fatal mistake that can lead to a much more dangerous situation in the region. And, lastly, does the American people know that the leader of the Sunni rebels in Syria is a member of Al-Qaida? It is not sure that the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
