    I see Syria and Iraq the same. We were in Iraq to get the Iraqi OIL into the Central Distribution Network controlled by Western Energy Corporations, no WMDs, no threat, no BS, that's why we were there. Mission accomplished. Libya, same deal. Syria has a little OIL, but it is a great pipeline asset and has a great port but the Russians are in that port. Syria has nothing to do with freedom and democracy and that is just the "Mighty Wurlitzer" tickling your soft spots. Skullduggery is our middle name in all events MidEast. OIL is the motivation. Who owns the press? Who buys the media? Is the media for sale? These questions have been answered for a long time. We have the best press money can buy. That's Capitalism.

    That article is really suspect. Here's something on the author Tony Cartilucci: Tony Cartalucci’s Covering for the Israel Lobby « The Passionate Attachment

    Then why did we allow Iraqi oil contracts to go out onto an open bid system?

    The source of anti-semitism is always cowardice. Chickenhawks don't have the guts to stand up to the weak militaries of OPEC and annex their oilfields, so we cover up our humiliation in front of their price-gouging by talking tough against the Jews.

    Because the Western oil companies piggyback off OPEC price-gouging. In addition to domestically owned oil participating in the 5,000% profit margin on oil that is as cheap to pump as water, the Western companies make more doing the OPECkers' work for them than they did when they totally owned the oil we used but had to keep their profit margins reasonable because they couldn't blame the prices on foreigners.

    Our pre-owned media don't let you realize this collaboration with America's enemies, not even the fake conspiracy theorists reveal it. The traitors who rule us have come up with a perfect plan to drain off the majority's power, mind, and will to fight their absolute rule.

    So instead of taking direct possession of these wells, fields, and services contracts which they could have conceivably done, they chose to... gain indirect profits from the spike in prices? Why?

    If we had a moon base and an accidental explosion happened, we would blame al qaeda and invade the country of our choice.

    I'm sorry, did the OP even read the article?

    Re: US Treasury Confirms that Al Qaeda Runs Syrian “Rebellion”

    There is so much fail I'm not sure where to start.

    The Syrian resistance is one of the most fractured groups fighting a regime in history. Units and I use that term loosely don't even cooperate in the same city. Essentially it's dozens of small militias all fighting the Syrian Regime on their own terms. There is no leadership. The new "government" that operates out of Turkey does not even have a grasp of control of the units in combat. Literally, no one is in charge. To argue that somehow that Al Qaeda is in charge is insane. No one is in charge.

    Did you learn nothing from the Cold War? Not every Islamic group is Al Qaeda. Not every group that is backed by Iran agrees with each other. The idiocy of the article completely forgets what was learned in the Cold War. Your enemies are not monolithic. The article treats all of the Islamic groups as the same thing. They are not.

    And Christians favor the Allawites because the Allawites protect minority rights. It's partially to keep themselves in power, but Syria is largely a secular nation with strong women's and minority rights. The Sunni majority would end that. It's not that Christians are being targeted specifically, it's that they are afraid of what happens when Secular Syrian Rule ends and Islamic Sunni rule begins.

    Syria is damn complex country (arguably the most in the region) and to think you can suddenly be an expert via one article is insane.

    I fail to see how it is intelligent to consider any groups remotely Islamic as automatically Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda cannot even funds it basic operations anymore (Thanks Obama!) much less field soldiers in a fight that isn't even against America.
