Miscalculation and vulnerability simmer beneath the surface of the Syrian conflict


Hassan Hassan assesses how various interventions led to a chain of miscalculations and counter-interventions that leave Syria without good options. I really like that quote:

"Turkish support for Jaish Al Fatah had a key role in bringing Russian troops to Syria, while Russia’s presence later facilitated the Turkish intervention in Jarablous and lately in Afrin. Turkey then turned from the most dedicated sponsor of the rebels to, arguably, the greatest enabler of the Russian strategy, since the duo worked closely, along with Iran, to redraw the political and military map of the country, especially in the north."
