    It's not even confusing. The only part that people get thrown off by is how the u s is allied with Turkey and the Kurds but they both are attacking each other which they should be on the same side.

                But why would assad supposedly use chemical weapons again even though he was already winning and knows that his western enemies would react violently?

                          Yea I don’t see why you can’t @ 2:30 call it what it is for us, When u call it what it is for other nation states. Obama didn’t what Russia to get the upper hand meaning they would be able to protect Iran and maybe even strike oil from Saudi. Geez Vox are u run by state government or what..

                          It’s poetic that Syria and Turkey border are supposedly the site of the garden of Eden. The beginning of mankind and it will undoubtably be the end of mankind as well.

                            I think the most important thing to do now as individuals is to not belong to any one or any thing, instead just asking for world peace.
                            Peace is more prosperous and much easier for all humanity.
                            Please pray for the end of all wars on earth, we can change this reality believe me, we are much more in quantity and power than those who choose greed and violence

                                        Nice and organized but failed to say two important aspects: 1. US is arming Kurdish Rebels (40 thousands truck full of gun) . 2. Turkey is the only country fought against ISIS and neutralized 4K of them with first military attack into Syria.
