Well, there is one strategy to contain ISIS and that is to ally with the Assad Regime to restore the status ex quo ante. Syrian regime soldiers are the only troops on the ground effectively fighting the Islamic State. Of course, their are terrible people, but everyone left fighting this war are terrible people (the Kurds excepted). As far as I can tell the Syrian Baathists are the people who hate us least.
