Here is what we have:
Both Assad and ISIS launched a war on the Syrian people, because both
want the same for themselves — that is as much ground on Syrian soil as
possible, populated by enough fearful Syrian slaves to keep the
oppressor’s farm business running and prospering.
The ideology (Baathism in the case of Assad, versus a weird so-called
‘religion’ partly based on a totally messed-up misunderstanding of
medieval Islam in the case of ISIS) is different, of course — but the
goals and methods applied are identical.
Both the Assad family and ISIS are mafia gangs, both act as such, and
both are led by ruthless bosses who don’t give a flying rat’s fart about
religion or ideology, which they see as just a tool to please and unite
their followers and foot-soldiers, and a cheap way to gain international
support from misled private donors and fascist states like Russia or
Iran (in case of the latter geopolitics play an important role too,
that’s a different but similarly disgusting topic we won’t go into here).
