You know things are going badly in terms of recruiting a broad coalition against ISIS if the Obama Administration is seeking Iran’s help. During a UN Security Council Meeting on Iraq, Secretary of State John Kerry said, “There is a role for nearly every country in the world to play, including Iran.”
This would be the same Iran whose President, Hassan Rouhani, earlier this week in an interview with NBC called the coalition against ISIS “ridiculous.” Rouhani also said, “When we say red line, we mean red line.” These aren’t the words of a country that is looking to help us against ISIS.
Then again how can the Obama Administration expect any country to help us against ISIS if it won’t help itself?
UPDATE: On Sunday, Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif to discuss ISIS in addition to their ongoing nuclear negotiations. Don’t look for anything good to come from either discussion.
