Syria Turning Point? US Withdraws Support for Current Syrian Opposition, Warns of Extremist Takeover
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

After meeting with Croatian President Ivo Josipovic, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton held a press conference during which she expressed the Obama administration's dissatisfaction with the current leadership of the Syrian "Opposition" represented by the Syrian National Council (SNC) who have mainly been living outside of Syria for decades. She stated that the SNC should no longer be considered the "visible leader" of the Syrian opposition.

She also expressed her laughable "concern" regarding "disturbing reports" about extremists trying to take over the armed opposition, as if they were not knowledgeable about al-Qaeda's presence in Syria and its direct funding by NATO and its allies. She stated that the administration's current plan is to include within the opposition people living in Syria, a step that the West has been resisting for a while.

    • @kle57
      The Arab Spring actually part of the long term fallout from Bush's epic fuckup in Iraq, but I'm sure you can't remember that far back. The US is doing exactly what it should there. What would you do different? Send in troops to support an Iranian backed government? Send weapons to the rebels with no regard for whose hands they could end up in? Or would you just invade the entire country? Let's hear some of your brilliant foreign policy insight, smartguy. Waiting...

    • @picklethepug omg, is there anything in the next century you want to blame Bush for too? Obama wants to rub some UBL blood on his face and take credit? Admit he has some blood on his hands too. He can take credit for the disasters in Libya, Egypt and Syria too.

    • @picklethepug Lay off the MSNBC....cause you are clearly eating all the shit the left is pouring down your throat. NOBODY wants troops on the ground. We shouldn't be involved at all in that place and we SURE AS HELL are letting weapons fall into the wrong hands that will one day be used against us.

      The Islamists fight side by side with your "Freedom Fighters" that Obama has been giving support too. You think if a FF takes a round to the head, the Islamist isn't going to pick up his A More..

  • If it is only NOW that terrorists are beginning to take over, or are jsut trying to take over, then we have had many disturbing reports not of foreign terrorist activity in the country, but of the activities of the "legitimate" revolutionaries. I wonder just how "legitimate" her revolutionaries would seem if they tried to take down the American government. Is it legitimate because they are "oppressed"? Well they seek to oppress people with Sharia and will kill peopl More..

    • @BurkaBurka
      Some of them are legitimate "freedom fighters," but the US has said all along they are hesitant to intervene further because they are aware of the Al Quaida presence. What would you do? Send in troops to defend the Assad government-- a state sponsor of terror?

    • @picklethepug what the US just did and has been doing makes it a state sponsor of terror.. remember the US funded and trained the al-Qaeda Mujahideen in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets and they've been doing that ever since...the most recent episode was Syria..so who really is the state sponsor of terror... LOL

    • @Eretz_Zen
      Thanks for explaining what Reagan did in the 80s, but that's not what the US is doing in Syria. This article just explained that. I'll ask the question again-- what do you think the US should be doing differently in Syria?

    • @picklethepug the US should have minded its own fucking business, that's what the US should have done. Supporting crazy Wahhabi savages to go butcher innocent Syrian civilians is unforgivable... no Syrian will ever forget that...remember those words!

    • @Eretz_Zen
      Don't give me that bullshit. BOTH sides in that fucked up shithole country are butchering civilians-- the Assad government is even more guilty on that charge. They are BOMBING their own cities for fuck sake! If you're a Syrian, quit blaming the US for what's going on in your fucked up shithole country. I'm all for letting you dumbasses figure out your shit on your own.
