    You could make a legitimate case that Bush/Blair were responsible. I don't see the logic behind blaming Obama though.

    It's not that hard to believe that the Obama administration backed and equipped Sunni militants to destablise the Assad regime, overall it may even be good for the West. I think that Syria should be balkanised into three different nations, one for the Alawites, one for the Kurds and another for the Sunnis once the Islamic State gets cleared out, it doesn't mean Obama and Hillary are covert Islamists.

    Bush/Blair were not in power when the US started arming "Moderate rebels" to fight Assad. Obama and Hillary were.

    The same "moderates" which only a few months later would join other Islamist groups to become Islamic state.

    Why do you think ISIS have so many American built TOW missiles? Those things don't just appear from thin air.
