The Editors of The Arab Daily News discuss the various factions and political forces involved in the wars and violence taking place in Iraq and Syria. Who's who in the conflict? Younes and Hanania discuss the regime of dictator Bashar al-Assad, as well as the growth of ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, also called ISIS Islamic State in Iraq and Syria). President Barack Obama has launched bombing assaults of ISIL and al-Qaeda targets in Iraq and in Syria, but not coordinating with Syria's dictator Assad.
