Leading U.S. officials now believe that America has
to expand its air war against ISIS into Syria, but nobody knows yet how we can do it… or what will happen next.
So Obama is going to bomb a sovereign country, Syria, to fight ISIL, without getting permission from that sovereign country.
So he won’t form an alliance with Syria, who has a fighting army on the ground, and wants to increase the aid of the terrorist ridden Free Syria
Army rebel group fighting Assad?
If Obama does that he truly is the most ignorant president in history and aught to resign but first fire ALL his advisors.
Here he has a willing alliance partner in Syria to fight the greater enemy ISIL (the enemy of my enemy is my friend approach) and he refuses that for
political correctness sake.
What this will do is increase the time of the war against ISIL and worst possibly draw ISIL and Syria themselves together (though unlikely).
Is he afraid of allying with Syria because of his own propaganda and lies against Assad?
President Obama wants to decide by the end of the week whether or not his war in Iraq against the Islamic State will expand to the group’s haven in
eastern Syria. But nearly everything about the potential military campaign is still in flux, administration officials tell The Daily Beast—from the
goals of the effort to the intelligence needed to carry it out.
One huge unanswered question is whether the president will order the attacks, or whether he will ultimately balk, as he did this time last year after
preparing for limited strikes against the Bashar al-Assad regime. One administration official working on Syria policy said the purpose of the meetings
Tuesday was “to convince one man, Barack Obama,” to follow through on the rhetoric and widen the aims of the war to include destroying ISIS in
both Iraq and Syria. While Obama and his top officials have said they will need to address the threat of ISIS on both sides of the Iraq/Syria border,
Obama has not said specifically what that means.
Absent direct guidance from the president, officials can’t even be sure what the objectives of airstrikes would be beyond retaliation against ISIS.
Officials are also trying to game out how both ISIS and the Assad regime would react. The State Department on Tuesday denied reports it was
considering coordinating on ISIS with the Assad regime.
The United States has conducted drone and airstrikes in Yemen, Pakistan, Iraq, Somalia, and Afghanistan. But in all of these cases the host government
has requested them. This week, Syria’s foreign minister warned the United States not to enter Syrian air space.
Obama and his aids are idiots. There is historical precedent of allying with countries who are nominal enemies of the US such as WWII when it was
Russia as a US ally who virtually won the Second World War.
Also there is the precedent of the Chinese communist allying with their sworn enemy Chang Kei Shek the leader of the Republic of China to fight the
Japanese empire who had attacked China in the years leading up to the 2nd world war.
So all Obama has to do is swallow his pride and make Assad an ally against ISIL and tell the FSA, the leading “moderate” group fighting Assad to
The problem may be that Obama doesn’t have the ability and wisdom to be a real leader with the know how to form and lead such an alliance.
