In all likelihood our own CIA, along with most of the Arab world, funded them into existence because we wanted to fight Assad and Iran. Assad and Iran are still major threats to western civilization. Why not contain ISIS where we have an interest and let them continue to fight Assad and the Shiites in those places where we do not? Isn't this more in our interest than just "cutting out the cancer" and enabling Iran to go nuclear and Assad to be its client state?
Or is it better to ally ourselves with the Iranian caliphate, let it grow into a world power, and trust that the nukes will never be turned on us?
Obviously, there is a lot not to like about ISIS. But they are the fiercest, most effective fighters the Sunnis have against the Shiites. I don't see where it is in our interest to help one side by defeating the other.
Obama started the fired in Libya. "Secret" bombings that were supposed to take a "couple of weeks" took months.
The American media ignored it. In the end, Gaddafi was sodomized, tortured and murdered in the streets.
Obama was instrumental in the removal of Mubarak in Egypt. And if the Egyptian military didn't intervene and removed Morsi...it would have been Libya redux.
Obama sold or gave away arms to rebels fighting Assad in Syria in order to once again, cause confusion and anarchy over there.
Obama purposely derailed the Iraqi strategy of leaving sufficient troops there in order to continue more fires and return the country back to tribal warfare.
Obama vs. Israel....enough said.
EVERYTHING Obama has done in the Middle East has the ultimate goal of creating a new Islamic State and to erase existing borders.
Now we're supposed to believe that Obama has 'found religion' and is ready to take on ISIS.
How stupid does he think we are? ISIS received arms from Benghazi.
And now we're supposed to believe that Obama is going to bomb ISIS troops in Syria, when in reality, he's going to bomb the crap out of Assad.
And yet we STILL hear talking heads on TV saying that Obama has a myopic view of the Middle East 'problem'.
