An interesting equation has developed in the Middle East. There is ISIS, and then there is everyone else … or almost. Everyone is against ISIS: the US, the UK and EU countries, Russia, Turkey, Iran, Syria, Iraq, the Kurds; and Saudi Arabia remains silent. Yet, by all accounts, ISIS is organized, well-trained and well-armed, possessing sophisticated weapons. The Iraqi army and the vaunted Kurdish fighters were no match in its lightning advance until US airpower blunted their offensive.
