That resistance is, at long last, breaking down, at least with respect to what is happening in eastern Syria.This is what CENTCOM and its Pentagon overseers proclaim as Iranian-led foreign fighters move into eastern Syria to re-establish its client, in-the-service-of-Hezbollah, Assad regime.Breaking that siege marked the beginning of a Kurdish militia – later expanded with Arab auxiliaries – serving as the ground combat component of a desultory coalition military campaign against Daesh in Syria.The harsh truth seems to be that the leisurely, underresourced military pursuit of a genocidal and terrorist enemy has given the parties that incubated that enemy in the first place – the Assad regime and Iran – time (with critical Russian help) to secure Assad in western Syria and deploy Iranian-led foreign fighters to the east.Reportedly there are some in the White House who do not agree with CENTCOM's recent, public green light for Iran and the Assad regime to help themselves to whatever they want in eastern Syria provided they fight Daesh.
