It’s hard to articulate how I feel. I hope none of you lives to see his/her country being bombed. I hope those celebrating that my (and their) country is being bombed realize that ISIS has been evacuating its headquarters in Raqqa for the last several days, that many civilians live in ISIS-held territories, and that the US has a pitiful track record when it comes to civilian casualties, i.e. collateral damage.
ISIS is the enemy, but so is Assad. If the US and its allies hadn’t refused to bomb Assad a year ago, or arm the rebels two years ago, or establish a no-fly zone and humanitarian corridors three years ago, the ISIS threat would be non-existent.
So no, those bombing ISIS are not our heroes, nor will they ever be our saviors.
