Funny you should bring Iran up, as pragmatically, the US performing a 180 and cosying up to them and getting them actively involved in stabilising the region is the least bad of all the terrible options. As someone already mentioned, there are no clean hands here. Assuming we don't see Iran sponsored Shiite death squads again, that could work.
Of course, once this happens Saudi Arabia goes ballistic and Israel starts threatening to nuke everyone.
Foreign policy is hard :(

Hard News: Media Take: Afghanistan,…,
The 30mm autocannons on the Apache are not "precision" weapons so shooting them anywhere near civilians is asking for them to die. Watch enough of the garish gun camera footage and you'll agree. The dispersion on the bursts can be rather large.
Anyway, we shouldn't be focusing on that. We should perhaps be focusing on why these people are being killed in our name. Perhaps it was an accident, but civilians deaths are the inevitable result of war and whether the Americans did it,whether we did it is besides the point.
