Karin von Hippel, the director-general of Royal United Services Institute, London, said the U.S. was careful about the developing complications of the Syrian conflict. “Not just because of the U.S. and Turkey potentially facing each other off, but Russian troops are there, other Gulf country troops are there, the Israelis have been drawn in recently, and of course the Iranians are there. So that really is a very dangerous theater where one little mistake could escalate in really frightening ways,” said Hippel.
