I’m still waiting for the answer.
The question: What is the National Security Interest of the US in Syria?
Another question: What is the existential threat posed by ISIS?
ISIS is a monster created in the bathhouses, madrassahs and Wahhabist charities of Saudi Arabia. They, the House of Saud, is responsible for this monster. They, the Saudi Royals, should clean up their own mess.
The Saudis should be held accountable for the creation of ISIS in much the same way as they and the Pakis should be held accountable for the Taliban.
If Wahhabism did not exist or was not spread like a slimy, scheit stain across the Muslim Crescent with Saudi oil money, would ISIS exist? Would the Taliban exist? Would al Qaeda exist?
The answer is no. A resounding no!
If we are going to solve this equation, Saudi culpability must be taken into account. The Saudis must be held to account.
Saudi Arabia is the enemy. Saudi Arabia is the source. Saudi Arabia is the origin of all Sunni Islamic Violence, Fundamentalism and Terror Strategies across North Africa, the Middle East and throughout Central Asia.
Saudi Arabia is the key to 9-11. Saudi Arabia is the key to the Taliban. Saudi Arabia is the key to ISIS. Saudi Arabia is the key to Libya. Saudi Arabia is a key to tensions with Iran. Saudi Arabia is a key to the Israel challenge.
Saudi Arabia is the focal point of all “evil” in the Islamic World.
Yet, somehow, they are our ally and everyone else is a threat.
Until someone satisfies the Saudi questions, we go nowhere in the Middle East or with the Islamic World.
We can crush ISIS. We can annihilate that faction. The newest of 70 years worth of Saudi funded Islamic insanity. Until we face down the Saudi Royal family, all effort is wasted. Something worse will arise from the ashes of ISIS.
