6. Thanks for posting that

It is interesting to read about each side's motivations in what is happening in Syria. The entire thing is a power struggle over who controls the region.

One of the things I found telling in the article is that Turkey is arming rebels out of Istanbul. This is a country that wants to host the Olympics in 2020 and maintains that it is a safe city. Yet if Turkey is doing this they are opening themselves to terrorist attacks (in retaliation) from other sides that are not happy about their activities.
