If Hillary Clinton becomes president, it would likely spell good news for ISIS, according to the Independent.

Clinton, a staunch neoconservative who believes in invasion and regime change, would by all accounts and speculation appoint Michele Flournoy as her Defense Secretary.

Flournoy, formerly the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and now the CEO for the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), recently published a report that says ISIS should no longer be the main focus of the U.S., but that equal attention should be paid to the Syrian Army and removing President Bashar al-Assad.

That is, the U.S. will build up other groups, that currently don't exist, to do the fighting against ISIS, al-Qaida, the Nusra Front, a process the report says would take years and that "during that time the dangers posed by ISIS will remain," the Independent quoted.

That would give a reprieve to the terror groups to plan and execute more attacks like the one in Nice, France, the Independent writes.

President Obama has been fending off neocons within the foreign policy establishment to do this during his administration, but if Clinton gets elected, the floodgates would likely open.

The Flournoy CNAS report calls for "military strikes" against the Assad regime as well as eliminating "artificial manpower limitations," which means sending more troops into Syria.

As Consortium News writes, bombing Syrian forces loyal to Assad may violate international law, but further, have not proven to work in the past, like Libya.

The advent and rise of terror groups were born from America's meddling in countries that induced chaos in the first place, allowing ISIS et al to thrive, writes the Independent.

"The world may soon regret the passing of the Obama years as a Hillary Clinton administration plunges into conflicts where he hung back. He had clearly learned from the outcome of wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya in a way that she has not," concluded the Independent.
