The Yellow Man of Allepo
The yellow man of Allepo is an old man in Allepo, Syria who earns his living posing for pictures for tourists. Here he is written about back in 2010
"Mention the Yellow Man to anyone from Aleppo and it is guaranteed to cause a stir.
The Yellow Man, as one would expect, is a man dressed in yellow. From his shirt to his shoes to his mobile phone, refusing to tell people his secret. On first hearing of him, I thought him simply to be an eccentric. However, as I began to question people about him, a different story emerged.
Flash forward to 2013 lets see how the yellow man fares under the brave "Free" Syrian Army.

5. This probably one of the less complicated ones.
The west with the help of the saudis is trying to get rid of an iranian ally and at the same time contain russia.
After they destry syria, they will advance to iran. They can't hit iran yet because syria is still too powerful of a proxy and can cause all kinds of headaches.
