The thing is, in this one specific particular case, it's hard to blame them. The status quo certainly ain't good, but what to do about it and how and per usual, the pivotal question is: what next? Is there something left in Iraq/Syria from which the populations there can built something meaningful for them? I certainly don't see it.
