How does bombing ISIS get rid of Assad?

Mission creep just like the no fly zones in Libya soon turned into bombing Libyan government targets.

Libya was is civil war before our intervention. If the civil war had rumbled on, with a great loss of life, ISIS would of likely happened anyway in Libya.

Gaddafi forces were winning the civil war and were about to crush the "rebels" in their stronghold Benghazi before the US and NATO intervened.

Surprise surprise, it didn't take long for the war hawks to beat the drums of war again in Syria for a 2nd time did it.

I have a question though, if the terrorist was trained in a Isis controlled town in Libya why does Cameron and fallon want to bomb Syria?

The answer is of course to use this terrorist attack as a pretext for getting rid of Assad, their goal all along.

Correlation does not imply causation.

If the actions of the governments of the US, UK and other NATO member states allows Isis or al Qaeda to flourish, grow and gain a foothold in countries which they didn't exist in beforehand then I'd say that's a classic example of "causation."

I think he meant the bit about Cameron and Obama etc. Not the training with an ISIS franchise.

It's really quite simply, before the U.S. And NATO bombed Libya and helped the "rebels" overthrow Gaddafi there was no Isis controlled areas in Libya but now there is and this guy was trained there and killed dozens upon dozens of innocent people. How are they not partially to blame?
