Iranian religious fighters see the fight against ISIS as a great way to subjugate the Sunni areas of Iraq and bring them under Iran’s influence and even control.
Wednesday’s attacks in Iran seem not to have been spontaneously inspired by ISIS, but carefully planned to hit a nerve and grab international attention.
Defeating ISIS would most likely necessitate a holistic, long-term approach in Iraq along the lines of the 2007 surge. But this would cost the president significant political capital.
Washington’s foolish approaches to the Islamic State will not destroy them or discourage others from following in their footsteps.
Enabling the Shia Axis to do our dirty work in the Middle East offers Western policymakers honey laced with poison.
