Uh oh.

The Free Syrian Army has announced that it will not sign up to the US-led coalition to destroy Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq and Syria. The group’s founder, Colonel Riad al-Asaad, stressed that toppling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is their priority, and that they will not join forces with US-led efforts without a guarantee that the US is committed to his overthrow……

The announcement comes a day after a ceasefire was signed between another rebel group, the Syrian Revolutionary Front (SRF), and IS fighters in Damascus. The details of the truce agreement, published by Arabic news site Orient Net, showed that the two sides had agreed not to target each other. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that IS and the SRF had agreed that Assad’s government and the forces allied to it are the principal enemy.[1]

So this leaves precisely whom for Obama to train, arm and sic on ISIS? The available field of "just right" ISIS ass kickers appears to be smaller by something on the order of, oh, ALL of the "moderates" currently in the field in Syria.

I don’t want to rain on anyone’s parade or anything, but isn’t this genius initiative by Spanky and Our Gang who are currently running the country dead in the cradle? Can this be pointed out?

More to the point. This is surely something that is perfectly obvious to anyone within the sound of Rachel Maddow's voice. Ergo, Obama and his controllers don't see ISIS as any kind of a threat to us. No. The threat we're going to spend $500 million borrowed from the Chinese and Japanese on is the Assad government.

When did taking out Assad become our number one foreign policy objective?
