Syria's war: Who is fighting and why 4.5

So basically America created Al- Qaeda in Afghanistan (to fight the Soviets), and then they fought with them. Then they provided training, weapons and support to Al-Qaeda in Syria while they are still fighting them in Afghanistan. ISIS then broke away from them in Syria after getting trained by the CIA. hmmm SO that basically means all terrorist organisations are MADE IN AMERICA 🇺🇸?

I think if we just gave Assad a Pepsi, we'd all be friends again.
