The armed rebels affiliated to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) raided the Christian-populated al-Duvair village in Reef (outskirts of) Homs near the border with Lebanon today and massacred all its civilian residents, including women and children.Story #2: "Jihadist groups of FSA kidnapped 700 civilian Kurds between Aleppo & Efrin. They hijacked vehicles too." ( Amed News Agency via Twitter).
Meanwhile, John "Gone Insane" McCain met with these same armed bandits and terrorist killers on Monday. I'm guessing he promised continued US covert support in the form of weapons and money. Didn't he learn nothing from the post-Gaddafi debacle in Libya? Does he suffer from short memory loss? Putin was right about him.
Being on the side of Salafist extremism will create bad karma for America and the West. Supporting Jihadist terrorists against Christians, Kurds, and other minorities in Syria will only strengthen Assad's argument that his regime is a protector of religious minorities and a provider of stability. This is an epic moral, political, and strategic disaster in the making for the U.S., and it is very sad to see.
The Jihadist terrorists have taken their barbarity to a different level, if that is even possible considering that they began their foreign-backed "revolt" two years ago with coordinated attacks against civilians to make them submit to their extremist agenda.
As shown in the two stories highlighted above, the FSA is kidnapping and massacring entire towns. Many of these people are not affiliated with the regime or have political ambitions of their own, they are just trapped in the crossfire and are punished for being good samaritans.
The Jihadist extremists and bandits in the FSA are abandoning politically acceptable military battle and beginning to implement policies of extermination based on sect, religion, and ethnicity. The reason? They are cowards who can't win in a fair fight. Their cowardice and blind hatred for people with different backgrounds is also why they won't achieve their warped goals in Syria.
