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: He presented ISIS as an inexplicable evil, although the group originated as a byproduct of US imperialist interventions in Central Asia and the Middle East. The organization, he said, “has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border.” He did not mention that both the sectarian strife and the civil war were instigated by the United States.
