For the past 6 months or so (probably longer), I've heard a lot about ISIS, and I know that they are involved in military actions in Syria, but I am still confused as to what their true purpose is. If possible, I would like to know: 1. How ISIS formed 2. Why they are involved in the Syrian Civil War 3. Why they are recruiting American teenagers 4. What is their true "goal" (as in, why did they form in the first place)
If anyone can answer even one of these questions, that would be great. Thanks!
