For the past six years, the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic has reported comprehensively and eloquently on the systematic, deliberate and criminal targeting of civilian populations throughout the course of the Syrian revolution.A commission that has focused nearly all of its attention on the regime, on Daesh (ISIS), and on the multinamed Al-Qaeda element operating in Syria, now has an additional player to consider: the United States of America.In Syria, however, the Obama administration refused to go after Daesh with a professional ground force coalition of the willing, opting instead for partnership with the Syrian branch (YPG) of the PKK (Kurdistan Workers Party): a terrorist organization.So much for trying to make Syria inhospitable for Islamist extremism.Yes, killing Daesh in Syria is important. Daesh remains, by far, the greatest of all threats to civilians in eastern Syria.The fight in Syria is far from easy and far from over.
