U.S. Marines training al-Qaeda-linked Syrian jihadists in Saudi Arabia
JW ^ | October 17 ., 2013

Posted on 10/20/2013 12:58:06 PM PDT by george76

Twelve years after 9/11, the U.S. has changed sides. The Long War Journal reported on June 29 that the Al Nusrah Front for the People of the Levant, which is “al Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria,” has “cooperated with Free Syrian Army units to establish sharia, or Islamic law, in Aleppo and in eastern Syria.” What is the Free Syrian Army? The "moderates" whom we are training and to whom we are giving weapons: “the US government is backing the Free Syrian Army despite the group’s known ties to the Al Nusrah Front.”

"Training of Syrian insurgents steps up in Saudi Arabia," by Mohammed Najib for IHS Jane's Defence Weekly, October 17 .

...

Free Syrian Army (FSA) units are receiving intensive training from US Marine Corps personnel in Saudi Arabia, a senior FSA source has told IHS Jane's . The source said the United States and Saudi Arabia have agreed to train around 1,500 insurgents. The programme began a few months ago and most of the personnel will be trained by the end of 2013.

It should be no surprise. We have a jihadi president and a whole load of muslin-toadies doing his every bidding.

I really hope Assad wins this one just to be able to rub it into O’s nose. I hope the Ruskies are training Assad’s folks with new weapons.

As long as this muslim sits in OUR whitehouse we can expect
these things to happen. Right now an enemy of America is
on trial “for terroism” in our court and not before a
military tribunal.

Freedom Outpost News had an article the other day asking if civil war was upon us following the sellout over the shutdown and debt ceiling. I believe that we ARE in a civil war, we’re just not shooting at each other, YET!

It is beyond clear that zero and his “administration”, the Dem Party and their RINO fellow travelers are out of control and doing everything they can that the majority of taxpayers and voters oppose. This is the very scenario the Founding Fathers tried to avert when they created the Constitution and, before the ink was dry on the original document, greedy politicians began plotting ways to undermine it.

Well, they have succeeded. For all intents and purposes, the Constitution is trash and we are letting these traitors wipe their feet on it! The rule of law is dead and the thugocracy is in control.

And, all we will ever do is sit around going “we’ll get’em next time”, meaning the next election. Well, the thugs have finally figured out how to stuff the ballot boxes and CHEAT the next election. They keep proving it.

But, we take comfort in knowing that “we’ll get’em next time.”

(sigh)

That's straight BS, but it's a frequent drumbeat around here. The FSA began as secular resistance among Syrian army defectors, fundie groups started to fight the regime, sometimes alongside the FSA, sometimes purportedly under their umbrella, but that variance in goals of the various fundie groups and the FSA led to a split over a year ago, culminating in the 2013 assassinations and attempted assassinations of FSA leaders by the various al-Qaeda affiliates.

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.

[by “anti-government activists” is meant church-burning jihadists]

Doesn’t matter. If AQ is in your organization, you are no more. AQ rules.

The Afghan army, for example, is by now basically an AQ franchise.

Really? Show how the FSA is simply a moderate anti-Assad force.

The fact is that the initiative to take out Assad was by AQ central command, and it was then immediately joined by Obama. AQ even made it specific that Assad was the next domino to topple in their chain of attacks. This was in the clear.

You have an islamist running the country. He has stated the country islamic the requisite three times.

Islamic lands never go back.
