Burns, Nicholas. "Syria’s Worsening Refugee Crisis Demands Action from the West." Washington Post, July 9, 2015.
The Obama administration and its European allies are confronted by multiple crises in an increasingly turbulent and violent Middle East — the Iran nuclear threat, a strengthening Islamic State and the disintegration of Iraq, Yemen and Libya as functioning nation-states.
