(Jim Nutting) No matter which way we look at the war on Islam, we are surrounded by enemies.
Syria, the mini-me of Iran is in a battle with ISIS and other militias against the Assad regime. If the US supplies the free Syrian army or any of the militias with weapons to assist in battling ISIS, they will use them against the Syrian government and the money we spend will not be going to battle against ISIS. We are also asking Shiites and Sunnis to fight the same enemy. Shiite Iran wants the US to destroy ISIS to benefit them, however will oppose any attack on the Assad regime by the free Syrian army. The Sunni Iraqis can only be expected to be Sunni Muslims, just like ISIS. We have to realize when we put the Shiite Maliki government in control of Iraq and then left, we created this vacuum.
This is so confusing and we can’t trust any of them. Its a matter of time before the so-called moderate Muslims supposedly fighting along side us will indeed turn on us.
If we put boots on the ground, shouldn’t we only ally ourselves with non-Muslim Ally’s?
