Shell game as U.S. continues bloody effort to unseat Syrian government
May 28, 2014
Earlier this year Jamal Maarouf,
leader of the Syrian Revolutionary Front, admitted his “moderate”
fighters conduct joint operations with Jabhat al-Nusra, the al-Qaeda
proxy in Syria.
Maarouf told The Independent he was instructed by his U.S., Saudi and
Qatari benefactors to work with al-Nusra terrorists who slaughter
civilians and summarily execute Syrian soldiers.
Maarouf said if “the people who support us [U.S., Saudis, Qataris]
tell us to send weapons to another group, we send them. They asked us a
month ago to send weapons to Yabroud [in Syria] so we sent a lot of
weapons there. When they asked us to do this, we do it.”
On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal
reported “Barack Obama will authorize US troops to train selected
Syrian rebels, in order to counter the rising power of Al-Qaeda-linked
“The current policy approach continues to be strengthening the
moderate opposition, which offers an alternative to the brutal Assad
regime and the more extremist elements within the opposition,” State
Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Psaki’s remark counts on the ignorance of the American people
concerning the U.S. role in the effort to overthrow the al-Assad regime
and replace it with something more amenable to the geostrategic
objectives of the financial elite.
