    The Syrian Civil War has been going on for five years, and there have been 450,000 casualties. If I were a Syrian trapped in Aleppo, I might be asking “Why didn’t anyone help us?”.

If Western nations had helped the opposition forces, a different group of Syrians might now be under siege. It is natural to feel sympathy for people trapped in Aleppo. But if those people had gained the upper hand, would they have been merciful to the Syrians who are loyal to Assad? Who are the good guys?
