    The same rebels that hack the heads off Christians in ancient settlements that don’t convert.

    There are pockets of moderate rebels (who I’m presuming this is referring to) but arming them is an exercise in futility. They’re getting inched out on both sides in the inevitable land grab that’s being engaged in Syria by both Assad and the IS. It’s a race now to see who can pick up what’s remaining that hasn’t been claimed by either side. It’s fairly inevitable at this stage that they’re time is running very short.

    But either way, Americas all go solution of “arm whomever we hate the least” method of imperialism isn’t going to work, just as it’s never worked in it’s sorry history of military intervention.

    I wish you guys would make up your minds or at least show some logic and rationality in your arguments. All are see are unsubstantiated anti American slogans and conspiracy theories. Either the Americans are stupid and can’t learn from their mistakes or they are brilliant and determined in their effort to rule the world through a shadowy group of people with what we might call organic links to a little country sandwiched between Egypt and Syria. Jordan and Lebanon. Perhaps it’s my classical thinking but I prefer Occams Razor to Gordions knot. They are incompetent and inept, and that rules out capacity to conspire with success.

    The ineptitude of people on this.forum to understand that ISIL is not the Sum Total of the Syrian opposition. The anti west gang on here are seduced by a de facto dictator, Assad, who ‘inherited’ his presidency from his father (only being his father’s third choice). Sham N.Korean style election where he gets over 90%.

    The ineptititude of some people on this forum, who seem to believe that the ‘moderate rebels’ (who would label saveges who eat hearts and behead Chrisitians ‘moderates?) are a coherant opposition to Assad. The so-called ‘moderates’ mainly consist of Islamist jihadists, who may not be as extreme as ISIS, but are still campaigning to impose Sharia law on what was a secular nation.
    Handing weapons over to these savages is sheer lunacy. Just because you believe Assad is the best bet, does not make you anti-Western. It just makes a realist.

    A large percentage of these head hacking moderate rebels are released Saudi Arabian death row inmates.
