City Liberated from ISIS or ISIS Liberated from City?

By Julio Severo
President Donald Trump hailed the defeat of ISIS last October in the Syrian city of Raqqa — the last major urban stronghold of Islamic State (ISIS).

Reportedly, U.S.-backed forces fully liberated Raqqa, the former self-proclaimed capital of ISIS in Syria.

Trump said, “ISIS strongholds in Mosul and Raqqa” have been liberated “as a result” of orders he gave to U.S. commanders during his first days in office. “We have made, alongside our coalition partners, more progress against these evil terrorists in the past several months than in the past several years.”
These “U.S.-backed forces” and “U.S. coalition partners” included Saudi Arabia and Syrian rebels, supported formerly by Obama and now supported by Trump.
Result? Even though many reports have indicated a full victory with an expected extinction of ISIS in its capital in Syria, the reality was different. There was no extinction.
According to DailyMail, 4,000 ISIS militants and their families were reportedly allowed to leave Raqqa in a long four-mile convoy, adding: “Witnesses said it included ‘huge’ numbers of foreign fighters – including some English speakers — who are said to have since spread out across Syria and into Turkey, potentially en route to Europe.”

The ISIS convoy was carrying tons of weapons and ammunition. ISIS terrorists were allowed to leave carrying AK47s sat on top of some of the trucks and squeezed into trailers.

The “U.S.-backed forces” and “U.S. coalition partners” monitored the convoy from the air, dropping flares to help ISIS drivers in the 163 vehicles, including lorries and buses, navigate the road.
My heart cries because when Christians in Syria and Iraq were being decimated by ISIS, there were no “U.S.-backed forces” and “U.S. coalition partners” monitoring and protecting Christian convoys to escape ISIS. In fact, while ISIS has modern, American cars, Christians persecuted by ISIS had no modern cars to escape.
They had no tons of weapons and ammunition to defend themselves from ISIS.
Christians did not escape, because no one helped them. ISIS escaped.
Even though the Trump administration wanted to exterminate ISIS terrorists, Saudi Arabia allowed them to leave and to move to other parts of Syria.
How could this sad result be different? Syrian rebels have largely helped ISIS and fought against the Syrian government, the only real local resistance to ISIS.
Like ISIS, Syrian rebels, supported by Saudi Arabia and the U.S. since Obama, also persecute and slaughter Christians.
Saudi Arabia had no permission to invade Syria, but even so it did it.
Had United States under Obama and has the United Sates under Trump permission to invade Syria? No, but even so they did it. If Trump wanted to fight ISIS in Syria, he could not have a partnership with Saudi Arabia, an ally of ISIS. And he needed permission from the Syrian government and to stop funding and arming Syrian rebels who since Obama fight to overthrow the Syrian government.
Russia is in Syria by direct permission of the Syrian government. It is doubtful that Russia would allow ISIS terrorists to escape Raqqa. But the U.S. and its coalition partners did just it.
Christians in the West can never forget that ISIS is a machine of genocide against Christians in Syria and Iraq.
Why did the U.S. and its coalition partners allow this machine of genocide to escape?
It is time for the U.S. to sit at the table and invite Syria to be a partner, because only Syria has been fighting decisively against ISIS.
It is time for the U.S. to apologize for supporting Syrian rebels since Obama and for invading Syria without the permission of its government.
It is time for the U.S. to apologize to Syria because Obama created ISIS, which has devastated the Syrian Christian population.
If the U.S. can have Saudi Arabia, the main sponsor of Islamic terrorism around the world and no friend of Christians, as a partner, why cannot the U.S. have as a partner Syria, whose Christian population was the main victim of Saudi-backed ISIS?
Obama made a genocidal mess against Christians in Syria. The mess continues.
Raqqa was not liberated from ISIS. ISIS was liberated from Raqqa.
