5. Should the US Government help prop up the dictators?

Get blamed for doing that, like in Saudi Arabia. Or Iraq, for all those years. Get blamed for unleashing radical Islamism, in Iraq, or Syria, Egypt, etc, when the dictators get taken out.

We can't just leave them alone, as that's trending toward isolationism, because what happens to those innocent people that might suffer?

We can't unilaterally attack anyone, but the world at large doesn't do much outside of economic sanctions, which also most likely hurts the people we're trying to help more than the people running the show.

Can't turn refugees away, can't take them all in.

Variables are always changing, and we can't quite keep up with them. We can do this, but that will go wrong. We can do that, but this will go wrong.
