Obama uses war on ISIS to overthrow Syria’s Assad

Via Terry


One of the things that has intrigued me about the Obama administration’s alleged strategy to combat ISIS is the degree to which it focuses on Syria. Not only are airstrikes within Syria contemplated but another attempt will be made by the administration to arm the Syrian opposition forces. To me this seems counterintuitive.

 Not only is he heartland of ISIS in Iraq but expanding our efforts into Syria diffuses those efforts while making building a coalition much more difficult. For instance, Turkey, which unlike Saudi Arabia does have an extensive frontier with Iraq and Syria, is reluctant to take part in operations to reduce ISIS in Syria because it wants to be rid of Assad. Fighting ISIS in Syria requires the United States to either openly collaborate with Assad and with al-Qaeda as well as attempting to develop the imaginary force that is the Free Syrian Army. In fact, the Free Syrian Army has made it clear that it will not be part of the US effort against ISIS.

Priceless comment below. :)
The real fundamental problem with Syria is a leader who is morally bankrupt, ideologically driven, personally narcissistic, has surrounded himself with criminals and lowlifes, is of indeterminate religious affiliation, has zero regard for western civilization, no respect for our potential coalition allies who also hold him in the lowest regard and has ruled for years with unchallenged dictatorial power. As such, until Obama is gone, nothing is going to get resolved in Syria or anywhere else for that matter.


  1. Well, DUH !!!

    Love that comment as well - about sums the situation up quite nicely. Mr.Backdoor Soetoro applies it to politics.

  2. America and Syria have the same leader/dictator problem. They are mirror images of each other.

  3. & Assad might well be the better of the two.

  4. Assad is definitely the better of the two - and since when does Soetoro get to tell the leader of a sovereign nation to step down and let him install yet another bunch of blood-thirsty MB thugs as the replacement- The only reason it hasn't happened is the fear of what Putin would do, and that's a very healthy fear to maintain. Using ISIS to do the dirty work changes nothing in that regard. No way will Putin allow it, nor should he as an ally to Syria. Stay tuned.

  5. "Amateurs" American foreign policy.

  6. The obamarhoid could not get congress to arm the Syrian rebels to overthrow Assad, so now this corrupt administration wants to arm the "rebels" to fight ISIS?

    Give me a break!

    Same old shit sandwich, different day!
