25. Please know your right wing slur

 

The right wingers slur on Obama about Syria is that he led from behind, he retreated from the red line he drew, he let the Russians push him around in Syria etc etc etc. My problem with him is the opposite of that, I think he did way too much which made life hell for the people of Syria.

On Obama and ISIS, I just think that ISIS territory was growing while the Western coalition and their rebels were busy harassing the Syrian Army and the TOW rockets which was devastating to the Syrian army somehow landed in the hands of ISIS. Btw, the TOW was so devastating to the Syrian army that they were on the verge of defeat because of it. And not until the Russians, yes the evil Russians arrived that this string of victories by the rebels and the ISIS territorial gains were reversed. Until the Russians arrived, the ISIS the richest terrorist group in the world, making $5m a day from selling oil to another NATO member Turkey. The US air force which had the capability to destroy this oil running infrastructure did nothing to them. I mean, u cannot make this up

So take those facts however you like but the objective truth is that the presence of the US sponsored rebels, the continuous sanctions and harassment on the Syrian govt ended up benefiting ISIS.
