Yes, it is a difference without a distinction or perhaps not even a
difference. Ron might have missed the fact that this Saudi suggestion to
send troops is only to "fight ISIS", alongside the US, Assad, Russia,
Iran, France, the YPG and everyone else. None of them to fight the much,
much bigger terrorist entity in Syria. And since even those among these
forces who are barely fighting ISIS at all - ie, Assad, Russia and
Iran - use the rationale of allegedly "fighting ISIS" to carry out their
mass murdering global onslaught against the Syrian rebels - who are the
only ones who have fought ISIS on their own terms without any foreign
imperialist bombs to help them - then theoretically "ISIS" is the target
of this "resistance" carried out by the Axis of it. So by joining the
"US axis" the Saudis are joining the "axis of Resistance" since the US
is already in it.
Really, at the very moment when total US support for the
Russian-Assad-Iran onslaught against the Aleppo rebels is now as
transparent as ever, at the moment that tens of thousands, if not
hundreds of thousands, are being forced across borders in this massive
new Nakbah, the Saudi regime, which pretends to support the Syrian
rebels, announces it is time to send forces to "fight ISIS". Right now,
if Saudi Arabia and Turkey do not - and of course they will not -
finally break the US embargo on them supplying anti-aircrafts to the
Syrian rebels, they stand completely exposed.
The complete and utter laugh that the Syrian rebels are a Saudi-Turkish
creature stands exposed. However, the far bigger laugh that they are a
creature of the US has stood exposed now for rather a long time; now,
though, the unity of the US-Russian positions (as Kerry himself often
acknowledges, and once recently in rather blatant terms), stands out
clear as ever.

Iraq with the USA's deployed on behalf of the anarchist, freedom-loving
Kurds advancing on jihadists here and there while Russia's being
deployed on behalf of Shiite militias. This is a difference without a
distinction. When it is your hospital or bakery that is being blasted to
hell, what difference does it make if the lettering on the bombs is from
the Latin or Cyrillic alphabet?
