    U.S. Fights Side-By-Side With Three Terrorist Groups In Syria

    Al Qaeda is supporting the Syrian opposition.

    So is the Muslim Brotherhood.

    And Hamas.

    This is curious, given that the U.S. is supporting the Syrian opposition (and see this), considering military options for ousting the Syrian government, American allies Britain and Qatar allegedly already have foreign troops inside Syria, and the U.S. has been planning regime change in Syria for over 50 years.

    I thought Al Qaeda, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood were America’s mortal enemies. Why are we backing terrorists?

    If Hezbollah joins the opposition, it will be a clean sweep.

    SOURCE

    Syria, another example of our insane foreign policy. There ya go Sapper have a look at your "brothers in arms" are you fighting with em or against em? Hard to say for sure anymore isn't it?

    18 USC § 2339B - Providing material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations

    Poncho,
    I have no idea how old you are, but do you remember the Iran-Contra affair, or the period of time in the mid 80s when we (the United States) played footsie with Saddam Hussein because we considered Iran the worse of two evils? Funny, lesser of two evils, that phrase keeps coming up about the election in November. Is there a pattern here?

    Let's just say I'm old enough to have witnessed the daily tally in the Viet Nam intervention. That was an undeclared war based on lies too, btw.

    Is it the lesser of two evils or the evil of two lessers? I think the latter.

    But anyways where's the arrests? It's pretty obvious the U.S. government is guilty of supporting terrorist groups. According to it's own laws.
