I think this is something that many people haven’t realized yet which Western and Gulf states are working so hard to obscure via their media propaganda is that the various rebel factions including ISIS all share the same agenda, Sunni Islamic supremacy and the extermination of all infidels. Some just simply have a wider definition of infidels than others. Like the various Communist splinter groups that battled one another over quibbles in interpretation of Marxism and the “proper” revolutionary path, the end goal was still the dictatorship of the proletariat. You say People’s liberation front of Judea. I say Judean people’s liberation front. There is minor differences in ISIS and All Nusra or the dozens of other groups of armed men who change affiliations on a weekly basis. A “moderate” Syrian rebel group fighting for secular democracy simply does not exist in reality. Merely bands of jihadists practicing taqiyah who are willing to accept American money and weapons and bands of jihadists so dogmatic that that they don’t. The overthrow of Assad won’t usher in anything other than another Libya. There is no way America can influence developments in Syria to the way it wants without significant ground forces and an occupation. Present American policy also shared by the Gulf States and Turkey can only result in Sharia law and various stripes of Jihadists fighting for power over the carcass of a former Syrian state. The Russian policy is to restore the antebellum status quo with Assad in power and all of the rebels dead. Which outcome is more desirable depends on who you ask, but there will be no “Free” liberal Syria at the end of either road. That is simply a fantasy shared by both neoconservatives and liberal interventionists.
