White House Jettison’s Obama’s Anti-ISIS Plan And Is Winning But There Is A Dark Lining To the Cloud

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is sort of a good news, bad news, worse news story

Good News.

The Trump has abandoned the dunderheaded scheme the Obama administration came up with to combat ISIS and it looks like their plan to take the ISIS capital, Raqqa, might actually work:

I am agnostic on whether or not this is meaningful outside of the Beltway. The only way I can see this as being significant is if ISIS is determined to defend Raqqa to the last jihadi because ISIS is more ideology than territory. It is always possible that the fire that propelled ISIS forward will burn itself out but color me skeptical. What is notable is that in the time since H. R. McMaster has been the National Security Adviser, he has jettisoned the bizarre plan conjured up by the Obama administration, replaced it with an American plan, and is executing that plan in a rather ferocious manner.

Bad News.

Those Syrian fighters? Standby for them to be rebranded.


Meet the new boss; same as the old boss.

Credit where credit is due. This is made possible by the Obama administration betraying the Syrian rebels as a favor to the Iranians and Russians.

We are providing training to the Syrian opposition and we have American advisers guiding them through their first combats as actual soldiers and not as members of armed mob. We are showing their leaders how to coordinate operations. We are acquainting them with our Tactics, Techniques and Procedures. This leads to a situation foreseen by the military humor/parody site DuffleBlog: Special Forces Soldier Excited To Train Men Who Will Try To Kill Him In Five Years.

Worse News.

Nasrallah, of course, leads Lebanese Hezbollah, which is basically the JV team for the Iranian Pasdaran in Syria. What this tweet refers to is a televised address where Nasrallah calls al-Qaeda American tools for fighting ISIS, predicts al-Qaeda, the Syrian opposition, and ISIS will crumble and he calls on them to join Hezbollah, and presumably Iran, in fighting the real enemy which is Israel.

Lest you think this is mere bluster, this is from over the weekend:

North Korean ballistic missiles bought by Iran, probably using some of that $1.7 BILLION in cash Obama gave them, were being delivered to Hezbollah in Lebanon. You can guess the intended target.

The only good thing about the Obama administration’s foreign policy in Syrian and Iraq was that it was so bizarre and outrageous that it was guaranteed to make the wars in those nations drag out ad infinitum. In my opinion, this was a feature not a bug. Muslim extremists killing each other and developing enmities that will result in generations of mutual slaughter is a unalloyed good thing. Breaking ISIS may very well end up being the most costly victory we’ve ever had.
