Second Jihadist 'mini-state' in Syria to rival Islamic State and Assad

A jihadist group that has pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda has taken over swathes of Syria as western forces have focused their efforts on defeating Islamic State.
The al-Nusra Front have carved out their own territory in the region, raising fears a second jihadist mini-state could thwart any attempts to end the barbarity.
The hardline Islamist fighting group has been gaining control across Idlib province in northern Syria since November, driving out other rebel groups, including western-armed moderates.

S ource

I guess Damascus is the end goal here. All the airdrops and training to help the "moderate" fighters and the air strikes carried out to "fight" IS hasn't really done much. It's quite clear who's benefiting from all this. The "war on terror" is a joke.

Yup, just read about this myself, perhaps Obama is stalling for time.

White House insisted the United States is leading the global effort to confront challenges in a deliberate manner described as

“strategic patience.”

Maybe al-Nusra and ISIS can fight it out over who's not muslim enough. It might save some bombs...

MILF and BIFF territory...
This is starting to get funny.
Maybe they are trying to weaponize jokes. The enemy will die laughing.
