[Marxism] What if FDR had declared war against both Hitler & Stalin

On the US informing the Syrian gov't.

Clay writes, cynically to say the least: "The Obama administration was also
so kind as to give the Assad regime a /"heads-up"/ as to the coming attack.
ISIS also had plenty of time to fortify and reposition itself in
preparation for the US air campaign. In fact the only forces caught by
surprise were those that have been fighting both the Assad regime and ISIS."

Nonsense. Everyone knew it was coming (despite protestations that the US
would not hit ISIS in Syria) including the forces on the ground in Syria.
Duh...the US announced it over and over again. They wanted to attack ISIS
and other forces deemed attackable by the US without having their planes
painted by anti-air radar systems, of which the Syrian gov't has some of
the most sophisticated in the world along with the missiles to go with it.
If not, the US would have had to use it's anti-radiation air craft to take
these out first and that would entail attacking Syrian forces and thus, in
effect, bringing the Russians into the entire scenario.

As the US has no interest, at this time, to attack the government, it makes
perfect sense to warn the gov't there of the impending raid's exact timing.
