I think they may well be "punching down". Iran is potentially the most powerful state in the Middle East, apparently with friends in both Moscow and now Washington. ISIS is just a would-be state, recognized by nobody, and attacked (admittedly somewhat half-heartedly) by Iran, the US, the UK, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, etc., etc. It definitely looks like "punching down". But I guess we would have to seek guidance on this from Trudeau or one of the other experts on the phenomenon.
