Syrian ‘Moderate’ Rebels Flocking to Al-Qaeda After CIA Halts Weapons Pipeline

A few of us have been predicting for several years now that the so-called “moderate” rebels in Syria backed by the CIA would inevitably collapse into the surging camp of Sunni extremists.

And now that is exactly what has happened, thus signaling the beginning of the end of any pretension of a “moderate opposition” to back in Syria.

    what moderates? they are all just islamic mercenaries who thought they could sucker out money and guns from the stupid westerners to continue their war.

    I expect that the CIA definition of ‘moderate opposition’ is Islamist Sunnis who refrain from killing Americans until after they’ve been given American-supplied weapons.

    I expect that the CIA and State Department has learnt something from their Camp Chapman fiasco on December 30, 2009, but the evidence is they haven’t learnt enough. Maybe the ‘Under New Management’ sign at the White House signals hope.

    Death to the “moderates”!

  • Ho Hum

    If it’s true that the CIA weapons pipeline has been shut down that is an encouraging sign. Now if President Trump is serious about getting rid of ISIS he will arm Assad’s army and provide air support for Assad. If this was done ISIS could be exterminated quickly. This will never happen however because such a move would anger U.S. ally’s Israel and Saudi Arabia so I expect instead we will see U.S. ground troops sent in to fight and die in another stupid neocon war.

      I expect a bombing campaign, ground action by special operations forces similar to what the British are now doing and an increase in aid to the Kurds. By all accounts, ISIS is now on its heels and is due to lose both Mosul and Raqqa soon, leaving it with few populated areas under its rule.
