What a mess in Syria and Iraq

27 Jun

Maliki wants Russian & Belarusian planes to bomb ISIS in Iraq. US drones already fly over Iraq, 300 US advisers on the ground. Iran sending more and more armed advisers and soldiers to Iraq and Syria. For a  decade, US delivering weapons and military stuff to the Iraqi army to fight ISIS. US weapons and material now in hands of ISIS after Iraq army ran away for ISIS in Iraq’s west. ISIS now fighting with its US-made weapons against  moderate rebels in Syria, who will receive $500 million of American aid so they can fight ISIS. US drones soon bombing US-made Humvee’s being driven by the sons of Bin Laden and Zarqawi. Iraqi Shiite fighters who moved from Iraq to Syria to help Assad, now heading back to Iraq to aid Maliki. Libyan Sunni fighters on jihad in Syria against Assad now travelling back to Libya to fight anti-Islamist general Haftar in Libya’s east. Lebanese militia Hezbollah fighting in Syria, soon expanding to Iraq. Planes of the Assad regime – an American enemy – bombing  ISIS on Syria/Iraqi border to help Maliki, an American ally. ISIS-jihadists in Syria and Iraq hail from over 40 different countries – mostly Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, UK, Holland, Saudi and Kuwait. They are hardly Syrian rebels, but rebels in Syria. America, of course, considers ISIS its big enemy. But all ISIS fighters came to Syria  through Turkey; a close friend of the US and an important NATO-member. Western and Arab countries let their local jihadists move to Syria, hoping these extremists would all get killed in Syria’s jihad. An easy way to get rid of your local jihadists. Instead, the jihadists seem to be taking over the Middle East. ISIS now at the gates of Baghdad. ISIS bordering a NATO country and Jordan and Saudi Arabia. US allies Turkey and Gulf telling Iran and the US not to bomb Sunnis in Iraq. Turkish army shooting down Syrian planes above Syria. Syria organizing car bombs inside Turkey. Iraqi Kurds ready to declare independence. Turkey nervous. How will Kurds at home and in Syria respond to an independent Kurdistan? Iraqi refugees who fled to Syria and then back to Iraq and now from Iraq to the Kurdish areas. Lebanese refugees who fled during the 2006-War to Syria and are now back in Syria to fight on the side of the regime. Millions of refugees on the move in and outside Syria, in and outside Iraq. ISIS connecting east-Syria with western Iraq and trying to create a caliphate on what they hope will be the ruins of Jordan, Gulf and the Maghreb.

Bloody hell, is it strange I need an aspirin after typing this?
