“As the ISIS mission winds down, the U.S. finds itself badly in need of a clear strategy and the will and means to implement it.”
General Wesley Clark’s most recent Op-Ed piece covers his views on the conflict in Syria, and his thoughts on how to resolve it.
Highlights of the article include:
- After the U.S. forces in Syria inflicted more than 100 Russian casualties in breaking up an attack by mercenaries a few weeks ago, a Russian response was inevitable.
- General Valery Gerasimov threatened that if the U.S. again struck Russians, there would be retaliation.
- We should say nothing, and continue to work with our allies to finish off ISIS.
- But as that mission winds down we need a clear strategy in the region going forward.
