JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: AMERICA ACTUALLY BOMBS SOME TERRORISTS IN WHAT’S LEFT OF IRAQ – WHY CAN’T IT DO THE SAME IN SYRIA?   Leave a comment

For some, American actions may seem a little confusing, bombing in one place while ignoring another.

But the explanation is surprisingly simple.

ISIS already did the work in Iraq that the U.S. wanted, and that was to eliminate former Prime Minister al-Maliki.

So America doesn’t mind giving what is left of Iraq some real help with bombing ISIS there.

But in Syria, ISIS has not yet achieved its purpose, which is to get rid of President Assad.

So America only pretends to bomb in Syria.
