Predictable that the “war whores” (nice phrase) would try to use this attack as an excuse for staying engaged in Syria or even escalating military action. I wonder does it ever occur to them that if US troops had not been in Syria the attack could not have taken place.
Once Russia and Iran stepped up to help their ally Assad, thus balancing the advantage given ISIS by the supply of Saudi funded mercenaries and high tech weapons, the Syrian regime seemed very capable of dealing with the terrorists. As Obama made clear several times of course, dealing with the terrorists was never really the №1 priority.
