    No theirs was a power struggle.....but they did have to use the MB and the uprising to pull off their defections.

    You know I am not disagreeing with you.....just trying to bring more of the issue out than what was known before.

    The secular defectors opposed the MB as well as Asad.

    Well, truthfully ALL should oppose the MB and since they are always one of the driving factors with the Sectarian Divide.

    I think ALL should Force the MB to go and fight ISIS directly with their people. Let them get a taste of what they have always been afraid of.

    You know, and I know that statement is complete balderash. It is the "Perception Management" talking point for Syria. Substitute "Putin" to demonize Russia. It is the Geobbels CIA mentality at work. Not an iota of truth. Sorry Jack, that's the facts.

    Yep! It also fits nicely with a long term neocon ambition for regime change in Syria.

    I'm afraid the facts are against you on this one.

    You know that the USA, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding and arming the ISIS militants all over the Mideast. It's the plan they don't want to talk about. Syria and pipelines. Iran and pipelines. The West, and that would include the scumbags and toilet bowl floaters within the 295 Beltway, has a nice plan to terrorize the MidEast until a favorable outcome is achieved for Big Oil and the MIC. We must be just a bunch of freedom loving, liberty and justice promoting militants or hypocritical backstabbers adjusting our "frenemies."
