It's really no surprise to anyone, is it?
The rebels are considerably more diverse than you describe.

BTW, did your high school history class teach you about the time we sided with the communists against a common foe in Europe? My history teacher called it World War II and despite our profound differences with the Soviets and the subsequent difficulties we faced due to those differences, it seemed to work out pretty well for us.

Sometimes the world can be a confusing place where interests don't always align perfectly.
