Who's side are you on?

The bloody chaos that is the war between the Turks, the Kurds, the Syrians and ISIS, with the Americans wondering who to bomb next.




Chaos.Kurds from Turkey and Syria pull down border fences





The Kurds are fighting against ISIS and the Turks. Turkey is fighting against ISIS and the Kurds. ISIS is fighting against the Turks and the Kurds. All are fighting against Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian Government.The Americans (closely followed by Cameron) are fighting against ISIS in support of the Syrian government and therefore must be fighting against the Turks and the Kurds. ("My enemy's enemy is my friend" and all that tosh)
Is it really possible to have 4 (plus Cameron) different sides in one war all fighting against each other?
