1. Why would the US fight something it created?
Rivkah   (10.10.17)
This is a natural gas pipeline issue and the status as the US dollar as a reserve currency necessary to purchase oil and natural gas. Russia supplies the natural gas to Europe through pipelines. Qatar and Saudi Arabia want to run the natural gas of Qatar through Syria and Turkey to Europe. The US wants to supply the natural gas Europe needs with liquefied natural gas in ships from the USA. Look for the money and you find the reasons for conflicts.

4. Putin might have miscalculated
C   (10.10.17)
putin's essential aim has been to secure military dominance of the middle east.
he thought that he could achieve this goal by supporting the iranian shia
terror regime and its vassal, the assad regime.
putin thought that by propping up assad, and fighting the moderate syrian
opposition, he could defeat the islamic state.
this was a miscalculation.
putin chose to fight and destroy the moderate syrian opposition which
was not an enemy, rather than fighting the islamic state which is an
enemy of mankind and which can keep procuring fighters given the
stronghold of sunni salafists on the muslim world.
putin fails to understand that iran is as much an enemy of his as is
the islamic state. supporting one to fight the other is a losing
proposition.
