Russia’s Ambassador the United Nations has stated that Western supported opposition forces are mostly affiliated with Al-Qaeda’s franchise in Syria, the al-Nusra Front.

“These oppositionists are affiliated with al-Nusra, which is, in turn, affiliated with al-Qaeda,” Russia’s Ambassador to the UN Office in Geneva Alexey Borodavkin said on Thursday.

“Therefore, we ask ourselves again – what do our Western partners think of when they support such oppositionists?… It looks like the repeat of the mistakes that have already been made,” he added.

Borodavkin said, “Syria should not become a ‘slightly retouched version’ of Daesh as a result of the political transition, but we have an impression that this is exactly what some of the opposition members seek.”

He then went on to urge the West to stop supporting the terrorists.

“Our Western partners should think better who they help and who they support.”

Wonder if USA & Allies see Al-Qaeda as ‘Good Guys’ or Bad Guys’ this week. Seems to vary from time to time.
