    Default Obama Admin Debates Whether Assad Really Must Go

    There’s a battle raging inside the Obama administration about whether the United States ought to push away from its goal of toppling Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and into a de facto alliance with the Damascus regime to fight ISIS and other Sunni extremists in the region.

    As President Obama slowly but surely increases the U.S. military presence on the ground in Iraq, his administration is grappling with the immediate need to stop the ISIS advance and push for a political solution in Baghdad. The 3 1/2-year grinding civil war is Syria has been put on a back burner for now. Some officials inside the administration are proposing that the drive to remove Assad from power, which Obama announced as U.S. policy in 2012, be set aside, too. The focus, these officials argue, should instead be on the region’s security and stability. Governments fighting for survival against extremists should be shored up, not undermined.
    Obama Admin Debates Whether Assad Really Must Go - The Daily Beast

    All I can say is...about bloody time. It is extremely disconcerting that it has taken waves of the most barbaric jihadists to make the Americans even consider reneging on the idea of deposing Assad.

    Anything to counteract the influence of the two-faced Saudis, which make up the greater evil. I wholeheartedly support Iran as the regional power.
