embargo - book
The French president has admitted delivering
weapons to the Syrian rebels during a period of EU embargo, a

'Thank God for the Saudis': ISIS, Iraq, and the
Lessons of Blowback
[T]wo of the most successful factions
fighting Assad’s forces are Islamist extremist groups: Jabhat
al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS),
the latter of which is now amassing territory in Iraq and
threatening to further destabilize the entire region. And

end of the Syrian state.

“shoulder its responsibilities” in global efforts to end the
