    US-backed rebel group criticises Syria strikes.....

    Well it didn't take long.....The Rebels are out criticizing the Air Strikes. The very same ones that Kerry said we were going to train. The others still want the pressure on Assad. How do you think this affects things going forward with the money BO wants to give to these MB Backed Sunni Rebels?


    A Syrian rebel group that has reportedly received weapons from the United States criticised air strikes Tuesday by a US-led coalition against jihadists in the war-torn country. The Hazm Movement, in a statement posted on their Twitter account, said the strikes would undermine the armed opposition and benefit President Bashar al-Assad's regime. They described the strikes as "an attack on national sovereignty that undermines the Syrian revolution".

    The Hazm Movement is among a small number of rebel groups reported to have received US weapons earlier this year, and was among those cited by US Secretary of State John Kerry last week as likely to receive US arms and training in coming months. Syria's opposition National Coalition, a key political grouping, welcomed the US-led strikes on Tuesday, but also urged the international community to keep up pressure on Assad.....snip~

    Perhaps if the moderates in the FSA wish to improve their lot they should help expel ISIS, then. They screwed up when they allowed all of the power to go to the most extreme side.

    As for the US, we look out for our interests first, and if they dont like it they can pound sand. Good thing sand is plentiful in Syria.

    Some of them have already made a pact not to attack ISIS.....later others came out denying it. But then that didn't count the 29 Opposition groups and Civilian committees that Pledged to al Nusra and against the US.

    tragically, ISIS will probably kill many of these people as well.

    Yeah....they were already wiping out one whole tribe of them. But these were the rebels that Kerry was talking about going to Saudi Arabia to train. Now they are up talking about the Sovereignty of Syria.
