The whole process of te Arab Spring and moving arms, munitions and jihadists from Libya into Syria has been minutely detailed month by month. The Muslim Brotherhood states of Qatar and Turkey were united with the Arab states Kuwait, Emirates [Abu Dhabi] and Saudi Arabia. Qatar was prime sponsor of shiploads from Libya into Northern Syria through Turkey. Saudi Arabia had supported the Sunni tribes in Anbar province of Western Iraq as early as 2004 during the occupation by U.S. Armed Forces. The Sunni with the extremists elements were responsible for daily atrocities in Baghdad in the Shia districts. The flow of arms and foreign fighters came also through the Euphrates Valey from the North into the Sunni triangle of Anbar province. During those years, the forces linked up with Al Qaeda leadership and perhaps dozens, hundreds or more splinter terror groups.
As the unrest spread in Syria from Deraa, Hama and Homs, the foreign jihadists started to flow into Syria from all four directions: mainly the long border with Turkey, Lebanese porous border, southern border with Jordan and from Anbar province into the Euphrates Valley where Raqqa was soon conquered by the extremists. AQI became ISIS which changed into ISIL and more recently into the Islamic State [IS]. [Syria architects of the uprising Amb. Robert Ford and State Department deputy Victoria Nuland, a leftover from former boss Dick Cheney]
