Quo Vadis re Syria


For John, BLUFWe were week in Syria and most now see it as being feckless.nbsp; Our policy for Syria is now at the mercy of others.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




This is a little old (13 December 2016), but still timely.  The reporter is Ms Cheyenne Roundtree and the source is the UK's Daily Mail.

A young Danish-Kurdish woman who fled her homeland to fight ISIS in Syria could receive up to six months in prison for fighting against the extremist group.

Joanna Palani, 23, is facing punishment from Copenhagen City Court after she violated Denmark's 'foreign fighter' rule, which aims to stop Danes who fight alongside terror groups.

Miss Palani is being tried under that same law, although she was ironically fighting against the jihadis.

I think it is sad that Western Nations are going after their citizens who go to the Middle East to fight on the side of right and good.  However, this can of national level action is not much different from the confusion these nations have WRT their foreign policies.  For example, what is our mid-term goal for Syria?  Where do President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry see us, and see Syria, in three years?
