    The civil war in Syria had already started long before ISIS arrived in Syria. The Al-Nusra front was making big territorial gains at that time; they aren't much better than ISIS.
    If you read my post it states ISIS wouldnt exist had it not been for the wests intervention in Iraq from 2003 onwards. I'm more interested in the conflicts which have caused large scale movements of people.

    That was way before the violenece in Syria in 2011.

    ... You think the "refugee" migrants are working?
    Of course... after all that's what Merkel wants.
