Al Nusra Front, and the Islamic State have joined together to fight President Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian Armed Forces. This past July, several factions of the Free Syrian Army pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terror group.
Now, in order to fight Assad, Obama is paying a salary to tens of thousands of Syrian rebels, who of course has ties to the Islamic State. We are fighting Assad because of all the supposed atrocities he commits, unlike ISIS…oh wait, ISIS commits atrocities too…
While all of this might seem absurd, that we give members of the Islamic State money to fight one ‘enemy’, as if they are our temporary friend, the actuality is that Obama wants to arm, give equipment and funds to the Islamic State. It’s been happening for some time.
The US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA), Al Nusra Front, and the Islamic State have paired together in order to fight President Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian Armed Forces, according to statements from multiple commanders from within the FSA.
“We are collaborating with the Islamic State and the Nusra Front by attacking the Syrian Army’s gatherings in… Qalamoun,” said Bassel Idriss, a commander of a Free Syrian Army brigade. “Our battle is with the Assad regime, and it is on Syrian lands only,” he told to Lebanon’s Daily Star.
According to another Free Syrian Army commander, the combining of forces with the Islamist terror outfits was needed in order to achieve the greater good. “We have reached a point where we have to collaborate with anyone against unfairness and injustice,” said FSA commander Abu Khaled. “Let’s face it: The Nusra Front is the biggest power present right now in Qalamoun and we as FSA would collaborate on any mission they launch as long as it coincides with our values,” the commander concluded.
Over the weekend, President Obama told NBC’s Chuck Todd: “we have a Free Syrian Army and a moderate opposition that we have steadily been working with that we have vetted. They have been on the defensive, not just from ISIL, but also from the Assad regime. And what-you know, if you recall, at the West Point speech that I gave, I said, we need to put more resources into the moderate opposition..”
