A strange situation has developed in Syria recently. In the current attempt to remove Bashar Al Assad from power in Syria several entities have joined "the feeding frenzy". First, ISIS (a.k.a. Islamic State, ISIL) surfaced within Syria, then, the United States began assisting certain elements to remove Al Assad; Eventually, the U.S. began actively bombing Syria, then several weeks ago Russia also began bombing in Syria.
Following the Paris, France Attacks of Friday the 13th, November 2015, France joined the bombing within Syria. Yesterday, I noticed that Great Britain (http://www.euronews.com/2015/12/02/protesters-urge-uk-lawmakers-not-to-back-a-bomb-syria-vote/) is debating whether to begin to bomb Syria, and also Germany (http://m.novinite.com/articles/172053/German+Govt+Endorses+Military+Mission+to+Back+Anti-IS+Fight+in+Syria) is considering getting involved in Syria. By the way, the U.S. is acknowledging that they are sending Special Operations troops back into Iraq (accross the border from Syria) to combat ISIS.
To use a popular cliche, the $64,000 question is:
How many nations does it take to defeat ISIS, ISIL, ISLAMIC STATE, et al? How many (Developed) nations does it take to change a lightbulb?
