The president must admit one thing: Any solution to the ISIS problem must come from both Iraq and Syria.The Obama administration's staying out of Syria at all costs has effectively meant it allowed a situation to fester that may impose its intervention at a later stage.What are Obama's intentions in Syria?If the goal is to transform Syria's rebels into an American proxy to fight ISIS and the Nusra Front, the brains in Washington may quickly realize that the Syrians have other priorities. Their aim is, above all, to overthrow the Syrian regime, whereas the Obama administration still clings to a policy of forcing Assad to the negotiating table. Yet Obama still refuses to dislodge a Syrian regime that will continue to defend itself by exporting instability through groups such as ISIS.By taking over Mosul, ISIS may have compelled the United States to overhaul its Syria policy.Iraq and Syria require American time and effort, which the president has been consistently unwilling to give the Middle East.
