The Daesh and Turkey
Turkey has been supporting the Daesh to try to remove Assad of Syria and possibly expand its influence in Iraq as well. The Daesh have already opened a terrorist training camp in Mexico. Obama broke his promise about not sending ground troops to Syria and Iraq by sending 1,300 to Iraq. This, after Obama's precipitous withdrawal from Iraq, throwing away all the gains made by the Bush Administration and allowing the Daesh to seize control of vast areas of Iraq. In contrast to Obama's strategic confusion and timidity, some Westerners are joining the Kurds in resisting the Daesh. Finally, the Daesh are using chemical weapons to attack the Kurds.
