The Islamist rebels in Syria, tried to sucker the NATO and the US into intervening in Syria. They faked massacres and cried genocide. Well this time, no one fell for the bait. The American public has made it clear to both the Democrats and Republicans, that we don’t want intervention in Syria. Now the rebels show their true face. They issue a threat, intervene or else!
AL-BAB, Syria — As the Arab world’s bloodiest revolt continues to maim, kill and ravage lives on an ever-escalating scale, anti-American sentiments are hardening among those struggling to overthrow President Bashar al-
Assad, in ways that could have profound consequences for the country and the region in a post-Assad era.
America, once regarded by the Syrian opposition as a natural friend in its struggle for greater freedoms against a regime long at odds with the West, increasingly is being viewed with suspicion and resentment for its failure to offer little more than verbal encouragement to the revolutionaries.
When the regime falls, as the rebel battalion spokesman assumes it eventually will, Syrians will not forget that their pleas for help went unanswered, he said.
“America will pay a price for this,” he said. “America is going to lose the friendship of Syrians, and no one will trust them anymore. Already we don’t trust them at all.”
We will pay a price? These same Islamist rebels where fighting or supporting the insurgents in Iraq against the US. Now they have turned their guns on Assad and expect us to help. Too bad, they can get help from Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
