The U.S. backed moderate rebels from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have been blessed with a wide-variety of weapons that have been supplied to them by the Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar in order for them to continue their fight against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the government of Dr. Bashar Al-Assad.
However, the reality is that these moderate Islamists are working side-by-side with the west’s bitter enemy: Al-Qaeda.
While the moderate Islamists make up a small percentage of the Opposition forces, the militias like “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), “Jund Al-Aqsa” (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham are jihadist groups that are attempting to spread their radical ideologies and seize control of the country.
In addition to their ideology, these radical Islamist groups also heavily outnumber the moderate rebels that the British Prime Minister David Cameron claims represent as much as 70,000 military personnel inside of Syria.
Not only is this number hyperbolized by the British Prime Minister; it is also absurd to assume that this many “moderate” military personnel are currently operating inside the country.
More importantly, the moderate groups like the Free Syrian Army have worked hand-in-hand with the Al-Qaeda affiliates, providing them with necessary supplies and logistics in order for them to continue their battle against the pro-government forces.
Yes, necessary supplies like the U.S. manufactured TOW anti-tank missile is supplied to the Al-Qaeda groups from the Free Syrian Army.
In fact, a picture was released yesterday that displayed a Turkestani Islamist combatant firing a U.S. made TOW missile towards the Syrian Arab Army inside the Al-Ghaab Plains of northwestern Hama.
The picture was posted by members of Jabhat Al-Nusra and made viral when their social media activists shared the photo from their accounts.
What the picture proved was the obvious collusion between the moderate Islamists and the Al-Qaeda linked terrorists.
