Fiorona is an incompetent clown like most of the Washington establishment. Her proposals vis-à-vis the Islamic state are as juvenile as the moronic liberals who think more government money will fix everything. To destroy the Islamic state will mean recognizing Assad’s continued right to rule Syria. To overthrow Assad means the further expansion of Sunni fundamentalist power in the middle east. One path is mutually exclusive of the other. To claim otherwise is patent nonsense akin to a whore claiming technical virginity. The entire Washington establishment is speaking with forked tongues because they actually do not want to do anything about Isis at all. One cannot speak of the Vietnam war without mentioning the role of the Soviet Union and PRC in backing the Vietnamese communists yet Isis has apparently seized half of Iraq and Syria after manifesting from the desert air. Simply put Isis is the catspaw of the Gulf petrostates and Turkey. They keep the former funded and supplied and allow and even actively facilitate the entry of Jihadists into the war. The Islamic state exists because the Sunni’s want it to, believing it to be a useful tool to roll back Shia in general and Iranians specifically. The US has the capability to roll back and destroy the Islamic state in weeks if it wanted to. It does not, so everyone is making pious sheep noises about Isis barbarism while the enablers continue to keep giving them money. Idle hands are the devil’s playthings and in this case the rich petrol sheiks have decoded that Jihad is a worthwhile activity instead of working for a living. It will be interesting to see if the Gulf states and Turkey can keep the crazies on a leash to direct them against targets of their choosing or if will slip free and eventually behead them in turn for insufficient zeal in Mohammedanism.
