    That has nothing to do with the capabilities of the US forces,if they wanted it,they could have done it ''in a minute''(so to say).
    Im sure you know the reason by now but if you dont,the US just didnt/doesnt want ISIS to be finished.

    I stated so when I wrote the FSA has support of CIA and other NATO allies. Their bombs fell on Syrian Army and not on FSA/ISIS in Aleppo.
    But I disagree with you that US can finish them off in a minute. Once you create a monster, it starts living its own life and refuses to abide by his creator. History is full of such examples.

    What has FSA got to do with ISIS?
    Again,if the US wanted it,Assad would be dead.
    Take a look at what an organized army can do to ISIS,how come the ''Iraqi'' army can all of a sudden gain ground against ISIS(Mosul),thanks to the Iranian commanders,the Iraqi army is advancing every minute,how come they couldnt before?
    Trust me,if the US wanted it,it could and faster then you can imagine,all of the leaders of ISIS can be eliminated with pin point accuracy(they have the weapons to do so).
    They did it in Afghanistan,they can do it in Iraq.
    The conclusion of this all: the US doesnt want ISIS and or Assad gone.
    Its in the USs interest that the ME stays in turmoil.
    Do you think that after ISIS is defeated,there will be peace in the ME?
    Well,forget it.

    Pls do not compare Afghanistan with Iraq or Syria. Indian RAW was there in Afghanistan to provide full support to US forces.

    Are you ok?
    I stated that they have done it in Afghanistan(eliminate Taliban leaders),what has that got to do with Indian RAW presence in Afghanistan?
    FYI,they used armed drones.

    Are you aware of S-400 and upcoming S-500, now let's see how much lead in technology US has over the Russians.

    Sanctions are effective but difficult, though not a perfect solution. USA does not care for either ISIS or the Syrian Government.

    USA has double standards with regards to terrorism and terrorists one which hit them (US) are bad terrorists and one which they create to harass others are good terrorists and America won't hit them. What Russia is doing there is whooping ass of both and USA doesn't like it but can't do anything as Syria and Russian forces are protected by S-400 anti-missile missile systems. So the US has burn down under.

    That's the reason we built the F22 and F35, increase of more effective anti air craft systems was inevitable, Moores law.

    Don't think USA wants a war with Russia over Syria. Expect policy is just to bleed Russia. Middle east is not a problem the USA can solve.

    Actually US is itching for war but Russia under Putin is no Pussy. US will be totally devastated in any war with Russia and the very Russian equipment you say are obsolete will prove their mettle. As vstol jockey said about Paton tanks which were the most Advanced tanks but were no match for Indian Recoiless guns and what about F-86 Sabre Jets which were the most Advanced were no match for Indian Gnats and Russian Mig 21s.

    So yes US defence equipment is GOOD but too demean Russian defence equipment and that too especially in hands of Indian armed forces can prove fatal.

    Where do you all come up with bull crap like that. ? India 4 times the military of Pakistan and breaks about even in losses 60 years ago means nothing about current events. Russia has about the same size economy as California.

    I will just specifically butt in here.

    Firstly, no, they have not been able to eliminate Taliban leadership (Haqqani Network is thriving under Pakistani tutelage).

    Secondly, when @vstol jockey speaks of RAW's role, he is quite accurate. Please understand that Indian Special Forces elements as also SIGINT were integrated at a certain level in the Northern Alliance under Masood. Additionally, in the first phase of operations launched in coordination with Northern Alliance against Taliban, it was provided extensive inputs from Indian Int sources.

    In fact, in another forum back in 2009, I had specifically mentioned RAW telling US about presence of OBL in general area Abottabad - Quetta back in 2005-2006 as 'state guest' of Pakistan.

    US was aware of the fact. Why it did not eliminate OBL, is something which is exclusively it's own wisdom.
