Dispute among the ranks VS. Syrian Govt.

The conflict in Syria has devolved from what was widely viewed as a fight for freedom against the tyranny of a dictatorial family line, into what many Western and Eastern powers consider being between a rock and a hard place. The rebel movement has become dominated by Al-Qaeda sympathizing groups, namely Jabhat al-Nursa and its’ recently renegade and more extreme offshoot: The Islamic state of Iraq and Syria(ISIS). Commenting on the situation CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen stated: “Al-Zawahiri is clearly fed up with ISIS’s open rejection of his overall leadership of the al Qaeda network. Moreover, he is likely quite concerned about how ISIS is alienating ordinary Syrians by a brutal campaign that has involved the public beheading of opponents and the imposition of Taliban-style rule on the population, including the banning of smoking, music and unveiled women in public.” With one side of the conflict being lead by a genocidal tyrant and the other by a dangerous and unstable terror group unprepared for a conflict, or Holy War, of such magnitude. Observing states debating aid are left with the choice of who to support, and also must consider the future of Syria should their supported side victor or collapse. -Shivite12
