Would ISIS now be in control of the Middle East if not for Iran and their freedom fighting allies?

      That is true. Obama was pro-ISSI and was lying to the American public about it. Obama started the war in Syria against Assad, and ISSI was the main fighting force against Assad. How can liberals get so twisted to not realize that ISSI and Obama were on the same side?

    Yes. Which is why the US is mad at them. The KSA and the USA and Israel had it all mapped out, and it didn't work out.

    Not at all. Iran played very little part in defeating ISIS. As another answer pointed out, it was the US-backed Syrian Democratic forces (SDF) that did the majority of the fighting against ISIS in Syria, supported by US airstrikes. As for Iraq, it was the Iraqi army supported by the US-led coalition. Iran, neither Russia, played any significant part in destroying ISIS.

    No. It would have been different forces in the war. But, once Obama was out of power, ISSi was finished. You do know of the specific moment that the turning point happened. It was at a G20 (?) meeting in Europe, when Russia entered the war to back its ally, Syria. Putin and Obama had a talk in the lounge area of a hotel (?) and Putin told Obama to bomb the ISSI oil tanker trucks that they were using to haul oil to Turkey for refining. They sold the oil and financed the war. Obama would not bomb these tanker trucks, thus funding ISSI. Putin told him to either do it or he would. There are photos of Obama sulking on the couch because he knew his ploy was discovered. Obama did bomb some of the tanker trucks, but left most of them. Putin then bombed the rest of them, putting ISSI out of the oil business and starting the decline. And, that dear liberals, is why you are supposed to not like Russia. Obama was supporting ISSI and lying to you.

      You will not find that news in the Obama/American press. But look up the British press. They had a lot of stories on it and photos of the sulking Obama.

    You haven't been following along, have you? Firstly, ISIS is not in control of the Middle East. Secondly, ISIS has George W. Bush and his neocons and their war of choice against Iraq to thank for its birth.

      A major contribution as to why Obama is the worse President in US history, and from which the democrat party may go out of existence. The current democrat party is in name only.

    No after 8 years of failing on Obama's part. Trump had them defeated in 6 months

      Part of the Obama lie that he was fighting ISSI. He was not. He was protecting them with "selective drone strikes". Russia saved Syria. That is why liberals do not like Russia or Putin.
