Syrian Al-Qaeda Beating Obama’s ‘Moderate’ Rebels

US President Barack Obama’s policy of supporting “moderate” Syrian opposition forces to counter the more radical alternatives appears on the brink of collapse, as the Al-Qaeda affiliate Nusra Front continues to defeat the “moderates” and seize their American weaponry.

By providing support, including military training and weapons, to “moderate” sources fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, the US has sought to form a power base against the more radical Islamic organizations of Nusra Front and Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

But Nusra Front is battling to topple the “moderate” forces and establish an independent Islamic entity to implement Islamic Sharia law in Syria.

    So, the Americans are not only arming the “moderate” muslims (no laughing, please) who are running away and dropping their “made in U.S.” weapons, from the other “moderate muslim” member of al Qaeda, who are gathering up the made in U.S. weapons with a big thank you but the Yanks are now so confused as to who the bad guys are.

    Here’s a hint. Followers of islam bad. Not supporting anyone good. No matter what Obama says. In other words @#$# em.

    The only “good” people involved in Syria in one way or another and capable of carrying the battle are the Kurds, the Jordanians and the Israelis, and the Muslim Brotherhood’s shill in the White House is pissed off at the Israelis.
