Jason Wilhelm's curator insight, September 11, 2013 12:06 PM

This article is really illuminating in its description of an ethnic and military conflict. Its a great example of a conflict that has many important factors that might not be easily understood by the public that lives outside the particular region. It actually reminds me a lot of the complicated conflict in Syria.
