Washington Admits Aiding Syrian Opposition
Aiding going on for past year.
On March 25, The New York Times headlined, "US and Turkey to Step Up 'Nonlethal' Aid to Rebels in Turkey," saying:
Other US allies were urged to do the same. Insisting no weapons will be sent belies heavy Western and Israeli ones delivered through porous borders for months.
They include powerful explosives, small arms, submachine guns, machine guns, sniper rifles, rocket and anti-tank grenade launchers, among others. They've been used to kill civilians and security forces, as well as destroy government facilities.
Russia repeatedly denounces Washington's one-sided support while claiming peaceful resolution intentions. Obama says aiding Assad's opposition furthers transitioning to a "legitimate government."
In other words, he wants independent Syria replaced by a client state America controls. Then on to the next target for the same purpose - Iran.
If Washington had a motto it would be: We're boss, and what we say goes! Russia and growing numbers of other nations respond Nyet!
