  1. This is a phenomenon that former U.S. Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford (who also is a fellow commenter on this blog) had warned about.

    In my opinion, the U.S. should be concentrating efforts on a concerted effort with allied nations as to aerial bombing campaign if they intend to keep ISIS in check. This was done with a degree of success with the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan to dislodge the Taliban from power in Kabul.

    America’s primary strategy should be to keep ISIS and the al-Nusra Front from taking control in Damascus.

    • Mark – “America’s primary strategy” should be to stay away from this conflict and any further involvement in this region.
