Too many players profit from IS's rise

All the players in Syria right now have benefited from the creation and expansion of the IS organisation, the centre-left daily Delo is convinced: "The Syrian regime helped create the IS by releasing a large number of extremists from prison. … As the IS grew stronger it kept other rebel groups in check. The IS, a direct legacy of the US occupation of Iraq and of the ensuing chaos in the region, was for a long time the executor of US, Turkish and Qatari foreign policy. The UK also belongs to this group. And nor should we forget how big an arms dealer France is."
