Pax-Obama: US-trained Syrian rebels say they won’t fight al-Qaeda

Embattled US-trained rebels in Syria pledged they would not fight al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra on Tuesday, even as Washington promised to ramp up air support in their defence.

Division 30, the first rebel faction to incorporate graduates of the US-led Train and Equip program, released a statement condemning a series of attacks by Jabhat al-Nusra in northern Syria over the past week that have decimated the group.

Nevertheless, the faction said, “it would not be dragged into any side battle with any faction” and that “it did not and will not fight Jabhat al-Nusra,” adding that its only targets were forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as well as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil).

    Any group that explicitly won’t fight al Qaeda is probibly either Al Qaeda or so closely aligned with them that they might as well be.
    In any event, three cheers to our State Deprtment’s vetting process.

    No groups that ever profess that they are warring for Allah should ever be supported, no matter how expedient.

      Well in their defense they are probably crapping their pants in fear, however your last statement is the whole truth and should be policy.

    • There are no allies to be had under any circumstances in the Muslim world. It is against their religion.

    Obama also told them that if they like their medical plan, they can keep it.

    • I bet they have a better plan than most Americans.

    We should be nuking them, not training them

    obama knows there’s no excuse for getting rid of assad but he just can’t resist trying

    More muslim terrorists with masks so their co-workers at the TCC or CUPE won’t spot them .

    I still have not heard from Bob Kinnear at the TTC ATU H.Q. about the jew-hating piece of scum from the 2014 al-quds hatefest at Queen’s Park where this POS was caught on a video calling for the extermination of jews as he showed support for hamas.

    What the hell is it for all these groups that have a common link to the PRIDE parade and jew-hatred since the pro-hamas people march in Pride while the TTC, Police , TDSB , Liberal’s , and many gays muslims waving the flags from their Jew-hating homophobic hell-hole nation they fled.

    A few years back I started to boycott Sponsors of PRIDE not only for the overt pro-hamas Jew-hating groups, but for the quasi-pedophilia displays condoned by the Police as naked males that expose them self knowing there are children there because the TDSB promotes it as a ” Family ” event ( maybe for the Stuckless or Gacey family ) to the students trapped in the school system and forced to drink the Progressive kool-ade .

    My first boycott was the Bank Of Montreal , and here are the rest.

    TD Bank , Hilton Hotel , Air Canada , SMART car ( Mercedes Benz ) , Molson Canadian , Home depot , Loblaws , CTV, CP24 , M-TV , Telus, Toronto STAR, Winners and the OLG that makes taxpayers complicit by-proxy to fund the event with child-abuse and jew-hatred.

    Time to take back the Nation form the sick and twisted perverts in charge and send a message to the Corporations that they cater to about 4% of the population and offend the 96% that will show you what real Financial terrorism looks like and not the current RAINBOW homofascists and GayStapo thugs that found useful idiots in the Liberal media to aid in ruining lives and businesses in hope that these thugs don’t turn on THEM .

    Just ask yourself why CTV and the STAR went easy on the Maple Leaf Gardens Homosexual Pedophile along with Ben Levin tha twas also tied to the TDSB homoerotic sex-ed that tried to normalize peodphilia and Man2boy sex .
