Presidential Candidate Evan McMullin Offers An Actual Solution To The Syrian Crisis

Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin has a plan for the ongoing crisis in Syria, and unlike his opponents in the Republican and Democratic parties, it has practical details.
It’s a rare thing for a political candidate to offer up anything more than platitudes to back up their policy proposals during an election, but McMullin is hardly a conventional candidate. Unable to participate in the debates, the Independent candidate published his solution to Syria in an op-ed for Foreign Policy magazine Monday.
First and foremost, McMullin said that as president he will “end the policy of averting our eyes” from the Syrian crisis “in the hope they will disappear.” He plans to reestablish U.S. leadership on the international stage in order to work with allies to apply “tremendous pressure” on dictatorships responsible for humanitarian tragedies, including the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. McMullin’s strategy centers on utilizing American leadership to stave off problems before they become international crises.
McMullin’s willingness to put pressure on Assad does not necessarily equate to force. McMullin believes the invasion of Iraq in 2003 was a “serious strategic error,” but also claimed that the Islamic State might not currently exist if the Obama administration acted earlier.
“He might have avoided the need to send thousands of troops to Iraq and Syria,” he said.
