Is ISIS an excuse to topple al-Assad? So the US, and its retinue, including its more devoted servant UK, failed to invade Syria, even after carrying out a false flag chemical attacks via their al-Qaida proxies in Syria, which they blamed on al-Assad. Later evidence has shown it was most likely the "friends" of the US and UK who would have done this. Now, Cameron, Obama's aide-de-camp, says that he does not need al-Assad's permission to strike at ISIS in Syria. Here is my guess, although, I must admit, this is purely speculation, that, ISIS is being used as an excuse, and the US and UK will eventually target the Syrian Arab Army facilities, to further weaken them, and actually enable ISIS to take control of Damascus, who then will be given a clean chit by the US and UK, just like they did business with the Taliban after the ouster of Najibullah in Afghanistan. What do you people think? Note, this is a purely speculation, so we are theorizing here - i.e., we are not only going to talk about what has happened, but also what might happen. So, feel free to post your theories of potential conspiracies (it might actually be true, like some of the past ones).
