The United States has yet to decide on whether it will carry out airstrikes in Syria against jihadists from ISIS, though it is already doing so in neighboring Iraq.U.S. military officials have acknowledged the group cannot be defeated just with its airstrikes in Iraq, which began on Aug. 8 after lightning advances by ISIS militants.In January, rebel groups began fighting against ISIS in territory under opposition control and managed to expel it from much of northern Syria.Many rebels continue to see ISIS and the Syrian regime as two faces of the same coin.Earlier this week, Syria's Foreign Minister Walid Moallem said the government was willing to cooperate with any country, including the United States, against "terrorists".But the Syrian government deems all those seeking to oust Assad to be "terrorists" and rebels are not keen to see Washington ally with the regime they have been fighting since March 2011 .
