Wouldn't be the first "freedom fighters" to then turn "terrorist". Osama anyone?
We created this problem by basically leaving a power vacuum in the area. Thing is, I think we almost WANTED this to happen, because a destabilized
Syria and Iraq will be too busy squabbling with each other to cause any organized opposition to the status quo. As long as the oil and natural gas
flow (no matter who is controlling it day to day), I doubt the powers that be really care whether or not the fighting continues.
The fighters probably know it too, so they know that they can keep the big boys out of it, as long as the oil and gas keep flowing.
It also gives valid reasons to maintain the defense establishment, keeping the money flowing into their pockets.
