Those of you who are puzzled and confused by what is going on in Syria (remember folks, allegedly a ceasefire was agreed a week ago) may care to consider that US Nanny is even more confused.
It seems that officials with Syrian rebel battalions, that receive covert backing from one arm of the U.S. government, have told BuzzFeed News that they recently began fighting rival rebels supported by another arm of the U.S. government.
Yes, you did read that correctly, US armed proxies are fighting each other.
One arm of the US supports one set of proxies, whilst another arm is supporting another lot!
“It’s very strange, and I cannot understand it,” said Ahmed Othman, the commander of the U.S.-backed rebel battalion Furqa al-Sultan Murad, who said he had come under attack from U.S.-backed Kurdish militants in Aleppo this week.Nanny should learn what Star Trek has taught us, namely the Non Interference Directive!
Furqa al-Sultan Murad receives weapons from the U.S. and its allies as part of a covert program, overseen by the CIA, that aids rebel groups struggling to overthrow the government of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, according to rebel officials and analysts tracking the conflict.
The Kurdish militants, on the other hand, receive weapons and support from the Pentagon as part of U.S. efforts to fight ISIS. Known as the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, they are the centerpiece of the Obama administration’s strategy against the extremists in Syria and coordinate regularly with U.S. airstrikes.
