A high-ranking commander of the al-Qaeda branch in Syria revealed that the United States indirectly supports rebel forces fighting Assad government in Syria, Kölner Stadtanzeiger newspaper reported.

“The U.S. support the opposition, but not directly. They support the countries which support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support. They should support us with highly developed weapons. We have won battles thanks to the “TOW” missiles. We reached a balance with the regime through these missiles. We received the tanks from Libya through Turkey. Also the “BMs” – multiple rocket launchers”, Abu al-Ezz, the jihadi commander, told reporter Jürgen Todenhöfer.

He made it clear that the group (now known as Jabhet Fateh al-Sham) doesn’t recognize the ceasefire recently brokered by the US and Russia, saying that they took advantage of it in repositioning the fighters to undertake an overwhelming attack against the government forces.

“We do not recognize the ceasefire. We will reposition our groups. We will undertake in the next, in a few days an overwhelming attack against the regime. We have rearranged all our armed forces in all provinces, in Homs, Aleppo, Idlib and Hama”, he explained.

“We accept no one from the Assad-regime or from the Free Syrian Army, which is called moderate. Our aim is the downfall of the regime and the founding of an Islamic state according to the Islamic sharia”, he added.

Nusra are just barbaric bandits that want to steal other peoples land. This is an age old problem.
After the Normans invaded England in 1066 they killed ALL of the Anglo Saxon ruling class and used the people as serfs.

The Yanks are now being fully exposed as the Chief bandits of the world.

Much complex than this : officially they’re at war against them and you can be sure their militaries will be more than pleased to carpet bomb them whenever they can, there’s even a crusader subculture in some western militaries, guys even tatoo “kaffur” in arab… Now there are black ops and in fact, it’s the regional US allies that hired the “bandits” and it backfires to them and in EU although except UK, there is no support (except to YPG or Peshmergas) as they fastly understood that there was no revolution in Syria. Now, even some EU countries may look… Read more »

They backed Saddam, Noriega, some US rich corps, including Prescott Bush’s oil company even backed Hitler…
“supporting us…but not enough” => If you can push two enemies into killing each other, you get rid of both…
