But Hillary Clinton’s expected choice as Defence Secretary, Michèle Flournoy, has just co-authored a report by the Centre for a New American Security (CNAS) in Washington that recommends that the destruction of Isis should no longer be the overriding objective of the US in Syria, but that equal priority should be given to taking military action against President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian Army
The president points his finger towards Pennsylvania, home of exiled Fetullah Gulen, leader of the powerful Hizmet movement.

I think that ISIS was accidentally created, via many means, including arming the wrong people accidentally.
They do not call themselves ISIS, the media named them that as an abbreviation.
France won't get revenge? Destroying ISIS is stalled?
It is a blood ritual?
Those statements should have some back up.
Once Hillary Clinton is in the White House, the “Playbook” that Obama so despises will be very much back in business. A frightening preview of what is to come can be found in the CNAS report, which comes across as a caricature of Washington wishful thinking that is woefully detached from real conditions on the ground.
Instead of focusing on fighting one war against Isis and al-Qaeda until it is won, the report recommends also taking military action against Assad but without destroying the Syrian state, and this demonstration of US military strength is expected to deter Russia and Iran from further engagement in Syria.

Hillary will be worst than Obama. She will start a war in Syria and forget ISIS...
It’s almost tempting to support Trump.
