You are mistaken. The US did not support the 1963 coup. Although they certainly did back earlier ones. They did want to create a sunni state in Syria, and this morphed into ISIS. But no one could have predicted that they would act this way. Even al Qaeda was surprised at them and unable to control them. They were trying to help a suppressed people (for the wrong reasons, but trying to help none the less). They are hardly responsible for the things that ISIS does. And yes they are bombing Syria trying to stop ISIS, which you said they had to take responsibility for. I would say trying to stop them is a good thing, how is it something to blame them for?

Take responsibility by acknowledging flaws in foreign policy and taking in more refugees to alleviate the EU.

And yes it is there fault. The CIA supported the military coup of 1963, backed ISIS and are bombing Syria.

Take responsibility for what exactly? America had a part to play in the Syrian civil war but it certainly isn't their fault.
