Let’s see. USA wants Kurds and Free Syrian Army to fight ISIS“The key Syrian border city of Kobani will soon fall to ISIS, but that’s not a major U.S. concern, several senior U.S. administration officials said.” but they won’t lift a finger to help the Kurds defend a key city on the border with Turkey? They are insane. They could have a squadron of Warthogs stationed in Turkey, surround Kobani and cut off resupply to ISIS with a snap of their fingers. They could forge a deal between Turkey and the Kurds to deliver armour/artillery against ISIS there. There’s nothing like a crisis to open minds.
Instead USA drops a few bombs and ignores a major victory in the offing for ISIS. They could at least insert some forward observation and drop the bombs where they would count. Panetta, Clinton, Gates and others are right. Obama is an indecisive “leader”. He’s a follower.
