This text concerns main moral issues connected with the armed conflict currently underway in Syria. On the basis of an analysis of texts published in the opinion-forming American journal The New York Review of Books, the author tries to show the complexity of the conflict in terms of the problems faced by world opinion.The author concludes that we, ordinary citizens, and the leaders of the world powers, in undertaking actions (participation in military actions, taking sides, humanitarian aid) had to resolve certain dilemmas and that in doing so they took into account their subjective interests. The author thus confirms his original thesis that the contemporary world is no longer guided by international solidarity or the UN principle of a “responsibility to protect.”
