Our next mess

I have a hard time believing that the U.S. will be able to resist intervening in this brewing foreign intervention disaster.

This country loves disastrous foreign interventions! It's practically our hobby. We just have to wait until the conflict takes its inevitable disastrous turn before the usual gang of chickenhawks starts crowing for the U.S. to help the "good guys" (i.e. side most closely allied with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula) and to stop the "bad guys" (i.e. the side that everyone assumes is Iran by proxy, because non-Persian Shia cannot possibly do anything on their own)
