I guess so if this is a reference to Russia and Iran intervening in Syria to crush that popular uprising.

But here's the real problem. You write:

"Gee, how ironic that ISIS just so happens to be massed around the areas that the Saudis want to gain control of for their fossil fuel cartel. Golly, I wonder if any of those maniacal princelings affiliated with the House of Saud might be funneling money to ISIS?"

In fact, there are Saudis who are funding ISIS but they do so in defiance of the official state policy of opposing ISIS. In fact al-Qaeda and its offshoot ISIS are deeply opposed to the royal family.

This confusion is rampant on the Baathist amen corner, which for obvious reasons tries to make an amalgam between jihadists and the ordinary Syrian rebel who fights not for recreating a caliphate but for the right to live in freedom and dignity.
