Vores kære udenrigsminister viste sin idealistiske fanatisme ved at nægte at samarbejde med den syriske regering fordi det var et diktatur, men lad os se på dem han så vil "samarbejde" med.
Even as they line up to support Mr. Obama’s strategy against ISIS, some European allies remain skeptical about the efficacy of arming the Syrian rebels. Germany, for instance, has been arming and training Kurdish pesh merga forces in Iraq, but has resisted doing the same for any groups in Syria — partly out of fear that the weapons could end up in the hands of ISIS or other radical groups.
“We can’t really control the final destination of these arms,” said Peter Wittig, the German ambassador to the United States.
“Even the groups that the U.S. has trained tend to show up in the same trenches as the Nusra Front eventually, because they need them and they are fighting the same battles,” Mr. Lund said.
The operations rooms — known as the Military Operations Command — also have had their influence sapped by the spread of extremists.
Current and former American officials acknowledge the government’s lack of deep knowledge about the rebels. “We need to do everything we can to figure out who the non-ISIS opposition is,” said Ryan C. Crocker, a former United States ambassador to Iraq and Syria. “Frankly, we don’t have a clue.”
Meget betrykkende så send flere våben til Syrien hvis målet er mere vold og kaos.
Alternativt kom til samme konklusion som DF og vælg Assad. Med sin magtbase blandt Syriens mindretal samt sekulære sunniarabere er han det eneste forudsigelige valg der ikke gavner IS og ligesindede.
