Although I'm pretty much of the position: bring Assad back, I cannot see that happening anymore at this point. Sure, you could stop bombing his army and even start supporting it and by doing that, drive ISIS out. But:

a) ISIS will simply re-emerge in Lybia.
b) The Kurds will farked (again).
c) Assad may forgive, but he won't forget.

Comment Systemd tries to be two things in one (Score 1) 508

The thing with systemd is that you want the executable that remains after initializing the system is done, to be super-lean and provable. Ideally, init would replace itself with another executable image after all the complex, hard work is done. And ideally, because of its complexity, the initial hard work should be done by a scripting language.

What 'su' does inside systemd is completely beyond me. That should be a separate system call.
