    Oh Joy - we sanction Iran (because they are the supposed #1 state sponsor of terror) - while the nation that is run by Al Qaeda and ISIS doubles production.

    Just another day in paradise :)

    Seems like oil was a driving factor in this case for sure. There are competing interests that want to put a pipelines through Syria (US, Israel, international financiers that align with this block) and (Russia, Iran, on the other side).

    Assad blocked the western interest from building a pipeline. The purpose of arming and supporting Al Qaeda (and the Islamist Jihadists that went onto form the modern coalition of ISIS) to fight a proxy war in the region had nothing to do with Assad being a "bad guy" (an absurd premise from the get go) and everything to do with destabilizing the region to stop the competing interest from building a pipeline.

    This is also put forward as the reason we are in Afghanistan. Same competing interests who want to build an energy corridor the "new silk road" to the growing energy hungry China/India market.

    maybe they've run out of ammo... the circle of anarchy, a truce to make some money then shopping for guns and ammo.... back to fighting.

    What crack pipe was this idiot smoking from. The Syrian Rebels ( Al Qaeda/Al Nusra, ISIS, Islamic Front and so on) were/are terrorists. It is not like this is some big secret or the fact that finding a moderate among the rebels was like finding a needle in a haystack.

    The vast majority of the rebels in Syria were Al Qaeda and various other groups of the same Islamist extremist ilk who coalesced in to the modern incarnation of ISIS.

    It's because you don't get it.

    Here's a little brain enhancer:
    www.chesstempo.com
    They got the best database ever. You can find games as old as mid 1800. Actually you can find the one in the movie called Holmes, Game of Shadows.
    P.s Don't let Scarl know about this as she might feel obligated because some database is involved.

    You're welcome...
