Militant leaders from the Islamic State and al Qaeda affiliate, the Nusra Front, have reportedly formed an alliance by joining forces against common enemies. Not only would the alliance oppose United States and Syrian forces they will fight the Obama administration-supported, so-called “moderate” rebels to dominate the fighting in Syria. The moderate Syrian rebels do not have the organization or the man power to fight government forces and a coalition of hardened, terrorist forces at the same time. (1)
Obama was counting on those “moderate” rebels to weaken the Islamic State in Syria. His only resort, without committing Americans on the ground, is by making deals with Iran to get involved. His letter to Khamenei described a shared interest between the U.S. and Iran in fighting Islamic State militants.
The meeting occurred on November 2nd in Atareb, west of Aleppo, Syria and was confirmed by a member the Obama backed Free Syrian Army. Information released by western backed Syrian rebels indicates that the two sides did meet and that an agreement has been reached. Details of the alliance are unknown to the public at large at this time. The alliance between the two brutal Islamic terrorist groups doesn’t bode well for the western backed rebels or the Syrian force in Syria and their supporters.
The Islamic State has occupied nearly one third of Syria and Iraq. In its “campaign of brutality and beheadings” (2) ISIS has acquired weapons and resources that have enhanced the groups’ ability to wage war against the Syrian forces with equal or superior fire power. The two groups have fought each for over a year now and have formed an alliance that has far reaching consequences for the United States and its allies. There now exists an unofficial agreement between the Islamic State and al Qaeda since the beginning of airstrikes by the United States. Both now have common enemies.
