ABSTRACT
The article reports on the U.S. strategy to deal with the Syrian crises and to engage with the Islamic State. It is said that the U.S. rejected deep involvement in Syria, hoping that the conflict would settle or at least remain limited to Syria itself. However, this proved to be wrong as Syria's humanitarian disaster and refugee crisis is only growing.
