Beginning of article is all historical (and a waste of my time), but the ending catches up to today…

A Special Relationship

Asked what could be done to help Iraq following the [ISIS] group’s lightning assaults in the summer of 2014, an Iraqi diplomat replied: “Bomb Saudi Arabia.”

 

The Turks and Qataris, however, adamantly refused to sign on. As one of the participants told me later, “All the countries in the room [understood] that Turkey’s opposition to listing Ahrar al-Sham was because they were providing support to them.”
