Further to the post relating to my confusion as to who I should be rooting for regarding the current conflicts, I’m delighted to now have some clarity with regards to what’s going on.
My thanks to commenter Itinerant John over on the Coffee House, who was responding to an earlier comment, for simplifying the problem of who’s with who and with who’s backing and who’s against who and with who’s backing. It’s all crystal clear now and it’s so damn obvious my head hurts:
"Sir, Iran is backing Assad.
Gulf States are against Assad!
Assad is against Muslim Brotherhood and Obama are against General Sisi.
But Gulf States are pro-Sisi! Which means they are against the Muslim Brotherhood!
Iran is pro-Hamas but Hamas is backing Muslim Brotherhood!
Obama is backing Muslim Brotherhood yet Hamas is against the US as is the Muslim Brotherhood.
Gulf States were pro-US but Obama's deal with the Iranian regime changes the balance of power.Turkey enables ISIS while bombing the Kurds, the Kurds provide the only secular force fighting ISIS on the ground.
Turkey is with the Gulf States against Assad; yet Turkey is pro-Muslim Brotherhood against General Sisi - who is being backed by the Gulf States!
See? Simples; and isn’t it amazing that it hasn’t all been sorted some time ago...
