It’s Been a ‘Good Week for ISIL’

Political analyst George Will says ISIL is benefitting from incoherent U.S. policy. “Seven days passed since the president used primetime to warn the nation of the gravity of all this,” Will said. “And those seven days have been an extremely good week for ISIL, because it is now clear that under no circumstances will there be troops from the United States – or anyone else.” Will continued, “You’ve got [Syrian dictator Bashar al-] Assad, and then you’ve got various factions of varying degrees of repulsiveness – except for those we now call the ‘vetted moderates’ to whom we are somehow going to get weapons that they will use – only they will use – and that they will not use against this, that, or the other group that fails certain tests of relevance. It’s an amazing problem. The fact remains, [the Islamic State] will not be defeated from the air, and no one’s coming on the ground.” Well, other than the 1,600 American non-combat troops.
