you can't tell the players without a program

In the bad old days of the Lebanese civil war in the early 1980s I remember reading a report that there were 44 armed militias in that small country. Today I came across a report detailing the numerous opposition factions in Syria that doesn't even offer a bottom line number. No wonder the United Sates and its friends can't put together a united force against either Assad or ISIL, much less both.

I certainly have no wisdom to offer on dealing with this tangled mess.
