The West is doing the right thing.
We need more WAAAUGH! We need to bomb more! Boots on the ground!
The West needs to change their foreign policy. Stop meddling in other countries.
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
Among various leaders in the political spectrum a dictator in some countries rises and the US supports them too. Whenever the public has had it with them and they start a full blown attack against the dictator then the US kicks those down (assuming again that they are not extremes).
Whichever the leader the foreign policy assures cooperation. But for the sake of both the people and the dictator, it had better be not be a dictatorship.
