Tony Greenstein's blog:

'Of one thing we can be certain. Bombing Raqa will not defeat ISIS. The bombing 
of ISIS by the United States in the last year is positive proof of this. Until 
Russia began bombing in earnest, it never occurred to the United States to stop 
ISIS’s lucrative trade in oil by bombing the tankers queuing up for miles to 
take oil from ISIS controlled Syria across the border. Hence why the US only 
began bombing oil tankers in November 2015.

'As the article from Socialist Action below makes clear, the US in the past year 
hasn’t been serious about defeating ISIS because the alternative would have been 
to hand victory to Syria’s President Assad. Instead it has played with ISIS like 
a cat with a mouse. In essence the US has been on both sides of the Syrian war.  
Aiding the Kurds in Kobani yet giving the green light to Turkey’s Erdogan to 
attack the Kurdish PKK, both in Turkey itself and in Iraq. Turkey maintains that 
the Syrian Kurdish fighters of the PYD are just an offshoot of the PKK and that 
they will not hesitate to attack them.'
