Who is the US arming in Syria?

“The Obamas and the Camerons…want – or wanted – to send weapons to the FSA, the secular, “heroic” resistance fighting for “democracy” against the…regime…in Damascus…the FSA are the guys we should be arming, now that the al-Qa’ida outfits have started killing the FSA leadership. If the good guys in the FSA are now fighting the bad guys of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, we should help them.

But history suggests that the good guys might turn into the bad guys and that the bad guys might win. What if the Islamists wipe out the FSA? Then our weapons really will fall into the “wrong hands” rather faster than they would have done anyway – since guns are money in civil wars and al-Nusra and the rest have the cash to buy anything we give the FSA.”

  1. “Al Nusra” and co. were able to overrun well-defended airbases and military bases of the regular syrian army and capture weapons and ammo, despite the army having airpower and heavy weaponry. Now, what makes the McCains, Hagues, Hollandes and others believe, the same “bad guys” won´t be able to seize the much wanted modern anti-tank and anti-airforce weapons from the “moderate” rebels (FSA)?
