Obama announces open-ended war in Iraq and Syria - World Socialist Web Site

Obama announces open-ended war in Iraq and Syria - World Socialist Web Site: It was only 12 months ago that Obama tried and failed to create the political conditions for US air strikes against the Assad regime, making allegations of the use of nerve gas weapons that were later discredited. Now Obama is seeking to achieve the same goal by a different route, using ISIS as a pretext to get American military forces into Syria, where they will become the spearhead of the campaign to oust Assad and install a pro-US stooge regime in Damascus.
