What does the average American know about Syria and how the civil war came about? Exactly where did these groups come from and who funded them? Who has trained them? What countries are/were involved? I'm extremely curious to know what the average American knows and thinks about this mess, and it is a hellava mess!

What's sad - is not a lot. People get their headlines from 90 second (at best) news pieces that summarize sometimes decades worth of information that is the backbone to why some of these conflicts are going on. Then, they become an expert.
What is also the problem, is shows like the Daily Show (and late night talk shows) summarize, and often satirize, world events. They make it "entertaining" and make jokes about very serious situations. Then at the end -- you get a society who thinks they know it all - and fall for the lame politicians who promise the world, and deliver nothing once in office.

The Syrian war is of several matters dating back before Palestine preceded Canaan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canaan. The powerful and wealthy families (indicated as how many on American currency) want their homeland back. They have been pursuing this land and territory for as long as I can research. ISIS is BS and USA made as told by Former Minister of Defense Paul Hellyer in his public announcement here: http://www.globalresearch.ca/f.....er/5437970 please note this is on Global News Group aka http://www.globalresearch.ca/
You want to start to learn of the history tied to this war;
The "cabal" have done nothing but turn man against man. Who's really behind the scenes goes without saying now.
Then you have all the disinformation on the oil/fossil fuels causing this war. It's all tied together.
