Okay now, Iraq is our ally. Iran also likes Iraq because they are Shia bros. We are against the Sunni organization ISIS as are Iraq and Iran. But we don't like Iran. We also don't like Syria, and neither do our Gulf State allies like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Our Gulf State allies send arms and aid to ISIS (with CIA assistance) because they are battling Assad, but then ISIS uses that aid to also attack our ally, Iraq. Iran sends weapons and troops to help Assad, with Iraq's assistance. So our ally Iraq is helping Iran (who we do not like) to help Assad (who we also do not like) fight ISIS (who we also do not like because they are attacking our ally Iraq).
Ow, my head hurts.
