Syria's Rebels

BBC Article

I have been telling friends and colleagues for months about Syria : The US should not get involved, that we are making the same mistakes we made when we armed the Libyan rebels to overthrow Qaddafi (the same rebels later attacked the US Embassy in Benghazi), that we are making the same mistake as when the CIA trained and funded the mujahadeen, which proved to be the core for al queda. The Nusra Front openly proclaimed their loyalty to al queda months ago. And then the US media discussions began, to arm or not arm the rebels. And US politicians came out in droves, like John McCain et al, to support arming the Syrian rebels. If people think the US should intervene in Syria by providing arms and funds to the rebel groups, this is the type of people that will lead Syria. Assad's Syria might not be the best Syria, but it is secular and not a radicalized Islamic state. Who will rule after Assad's overthrow is anyone's guess but, to be sure, groups like Nusra Front will have significant influence.
