|U.S. and its Arab Allies.|
In the Middle East, the U.S. has created one failed state after another that gave rise to terror organization such as ISIS, al-Qaida, and others. The U.S. diplomats were sidelined by the military. Bush the elder introduced the rhetoric of the "New World Order" which Bush junior completed unskillfully. The "responsibility to protect" that the United Nations adopted in 2005 was used by the U.S. as a fig leaf of outright brutal military intervention as in Libya. Instead of protecting civilians the West killed 40 000. Since, this so-called humanitarian interventionism has been discredited. The best thing for the world was Russia's intervention in Syria because it ended U.S. unipolarity. It signaled to the U.S. aggressor the regime change in Syria is over.
