    It's about Obama. No it's about the Warmongerer in the State Department. Who's it gonna be about next?

    How was this so....when the Suad and Qatar began supplying weapons to the Syrian Rebels/Terrorists?

    It took the Syrian MB to get all the Demonstrations back up and going against Assad. Just like they did with Assad's father. That internal matter turns out was the Sunni making a play for Syria.

    Do you think Isolating Iran would have damaged their Operations outside their country?

    Yeah, how John McCain hasn't been charged with treason is beyond me. He gave money and intelligence to Al-Qaida and gave key strategic information to ISIS when that duddering fool went on his "secret trip" to Syria.

    Yes. The Sauds and Qatari, the people who actually know the region, were giving weapons to the "good" rebels. The U.S. provided funding and money to "moderate" rebels who turned out to be ISIS and Al-Qaeda.

    More than half of Syria’s territory is now controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria group after its westwards advance into the ancient city of Palmyra, a group monitoring the war said on Thursday. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told Reuters the militant group has taken control of the city’s military air base and prison after storming them on Wednesday. ISIS followers posted a statement on Twitter saying it was in full control of the city, including the military installations, and that the retreating pro-government forces had left behind a large number of their dead.

    Clashes since Wednesday had killed at least 100 pro-government fighters, the observatory said, which gains information through a network of sources on the ground. The capture of Palmyra is the first time ISIS has taken control of a city directly from the Syrian army and allied forces, which have already lost ground in the northwest and south to other insurgent groups in recent weeks. The central city, also known as Tadmur, is built alongside the remains of an oasis civilization whose colonnaded streets, temple and theatre have stood for 2,000 years
    Indeed. The Islamic Caliphate is well on it's way to being formed. It's sure to export Islamic terrorism much like Al Qaeda did when it was resident in Afghanistan, only at a 100 fold.

    Seems that Obama was instrumental in the rise of the JV team!
    The responsibility for the raise of ISIS and the Islamic Caliphate surely rests at Obama's and Hillary's feet. Prior to the Obama administration, both Iraq and Afghanistan were reasonably stable and reasonably secure. Only after Obama's decision to pull out the troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, only after Obama decided to inject himself into the Syrian conflict, did ISIS raise and come to prominence. It's all his and hers.

    There are 60 nations in a coalition against ISIS. Some are saying that if each contributed 10K troops into theater it would wipe ISIS off the map in a week. I'm inclined to agree, but without strong US leadership to do so, we are going to have to just accept that ISIS and their Caliphate will be exporting terrorists attacks on the West in a continuous and on going manner, as their goal is to make Islam the religion that dominates all others across the planet.

    Welcome to nightmare Earth.
    It's a global Jihad, stupid. Allowing that poison into the country is only going to increase the damage it inflicts on others.

    Yep, such is the desperation of the neocons that have wanted regime change in Syria for a very long time.

    That's naive, while Obama and Hillary own as much, arguably more responsibility for the rise of the Islamic State, you cannot let Bush off the hook for his earlier contribution. This is a result of bi-partisan failure.

    Oh, and what about this guy?



    The US is to supply direct military aid to the Syrian opposition for the first time, the White House has announced.

    President Obama made the decision after his administration concluded Syrian forces under Bashar al-Assad were using chemical weapons, a spokesman said.

    And, and it seems Hillary was all in with Syria.



    "‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle".....


    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drew a foreign policy line between herself and President Obama in an interview this week, saying the President should have assisted Syrian rebels early in the bloody three-year conflict there, and issuing a dig at his Administration’s minimalist doctrine.

    The Obama Administration’s wariness about assisting rebels out of fear that aid would fall into the hands of extremists was misguided and ineffectual, Clinton said in an interview with the Atlantic, and allowed for the rise of Islamic extremists who are now threatening to take over wide swaths of Iraq. “The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad — there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle — the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” Clinton said.

    President Obama resisted calls to arm moderate Syrian rebels, and did not initially send nonlethal aid to opposition forces. Clinton said that vetting, training and equipping the moderate Free Syrian Army, who in the early days of the revolution were at the core of the uprising against President Bashar Assad, would have provided better insight into the war in Syria and would have helped bolster a “credible political opposition.”.....snip~
