This article discusses our current dilemma with Syria. On the campaign trail Trump often spoken about joining forces with Russia to fight ISIS. After we bombed Syria, this upset Russia because that is one of their best Mideastern allies. Is it possible we then end up with two wars? This article argues no, because while we have competing interest in Syria like Assad staying in power, both super powers want to get rid of ISIS. Thy both have been careful not to hit each others military forces in Syria. But, since the U.S has officially acted on Assad, it messes things up with Russia and fighting ISIS.
