A proxy war is choosing a ‘champion’, and let him or her do the fighting. For example, the Iranians are using Islamic extremists in Yemen to bring down the government and take over the country. The Iranians don’t care about the suffering of the local citizens, or how much destruction takes place. They are only interested in the results. They are shameless and without mercy. President Obama is doing this as well. He is using Iran to fight ISIS, who in its turn fights the proxy war in preference of Obama… for a certain price. Iran has proxies in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq. Only in Iraq, Iran’s proxies fights the ISIS together with the Iraqi army. That’s fine with Obama. In Syria, the proxy fights against Sunni Islamic extremists and in support for Assad. Obama is not happy with the support for Assad, but is silent about it in public. The buildup of proxy army in Lebanon has nothing to do with ISIS or Assad or Islamic extremists. In reality it’s the buildup of forces threatening Israel. As long as they are silent, Obama stays silent about it too.
