It's getting worse.
Today's is: "ISIS Tightens Its Grip With Seizure of Air Base in Syria."
"Recent military advances by ISIS in northern and eastern Syria have highlighted the lack of local military forces that can effectively battle the group, which President Obama last week called a “cancer” that must be eradicated from the Middle East."
Unlike in Iraq where there is a sane well organized opposition on the ground like the pesh merga Kurdish forces; it appears that Assad, distasteful as he may be requires help to contain ISIS because he is not up to it. I believe that the Iran came to same conclusion when deciding to put Hezbollah fighters from Lebanon to help him out earlier this year. And so there you have it, in order to fight ISIS Obama is going to have to make nice to Iran and let Iran help Assad contain ISIS with their proxy ISIS, Hezbollah. Welcome to the middle east reality.
