    Understanding Syria's War - What ISIS & Al-Nusra's rise to power means




    Explains a lot about what's happening. Our "allies" the Saudis and Qatar are arming and funding these guys with our weapons.

    Actually, what is happening goes back over 100 years ago when Britain and France carved up the Ottoman Empire after World War 1 and made random borders with NO respect to ethnic groups...

    It's more about who's currently funding and arming these groups.
