***The bombing of ISIS is a pretext to target the Syrian state***
Let’s not be confused by Obama’s assertion that ISIS is the third largest threat to humanity (after Ebola and Russia, apparently). Granted, ISIS very much is a threat to the resistant peoples of the region, but one that the Syrian state — in alliance with Hezbollah and Iran — has been relentlessly fighting against for the past three plus years while all the countries in the coalition airstrikes have helped to foster and facilitate ISIS’ growth. After a series of failures to bring the government of Bashar al-Assad’s Ba’ath Party to its knees through both proxy and direct means (including funding of rebel groups and the chemical weapons propaganda [YouTube video evidence] last year in the hope of launching airstrikes on government targets [which could have created somewhat of a “Libyan scenario” of bombing the rebels a path to victory]), the most sellable option now (despite it still being absurd to anyone really paying attention) is that the boogey-man in the form of the Islamic State has to be combated, and hence, Syria must be bombed. It is no coincidence that the decision to bomb targets in Syria has been paired with the announcement that the coalition will train 5,000 “moderate” rebels at bases in Saudi Arabia.
