Obama's "moderate allies" expel US special forces soldiers

For some strange reason neither the pro-Democrat CNN not the unabashadly left wing, taxpayer funded, CBC is covering this expulsion of US soldiers and the fact that after receiving weapons and billions of dollars of US aid from the Obama administration, the FSA "moderates" are calling the American soldiers "dogs" and "infidils" and threatening to kill them as the humiliated soldiers flee for their lives.


‘Crusaders! Infidels! Dogs! Get out!’ US-backed rebels force US commandos to leave Syrian town

“Five or six” US special forces troops had to withdraw from the town of al-Rai on Syria’s border with Turkey, after allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) had driven them out, calling them “infidels” and “crusaders,” several media outlets have reported.

The Turkish military, which last month openly crossed the Syrian border to fight against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), has admitted that US soldiers are providing a supporting and coordinating role in the operation being carried out between the Syrian towns of Azaz and al-Rai, Reuters reports.

At least two videos circulated on Twitter on Friday evening appeared to show that they were not welcome in al-Rai.
The footage shows a group of agitated men, gathered in the town square, shouting anti-American slogans in Arabic, as a cavalcade of vehicles passes by.

The chants include: "Down with America," "Get out you dogs," and "They are coming to Syria to occupy it." Voices in the background call the US troops “pigs” and “crusaders.”

"We don't want a single American fighting in Syria alongside us," says a man in the second video. "We are Muslims, we are not infidels. Get out!"

Reuters cited a US official and a “senior rebel commander,” who confirmed that a protest had taken place, which ended with US troops making their way back towards the Turkish border.

Later, a group of rebels purporting to be representatives of Ahrar al-Sharqiya, a militia operating in the area, circulated a video statement, saying that US support of Kurds, who are also fighting Islamic State, was behind their protest.
"We and other FSA groups fighting in and around Aleppo say that we remain a free army, and refuse to fight on the side of Americans, who support the terrorist Kurdish PKK. We are halting all military activities until US troops leave the region."

The US State Department spokesman John Kirby said the "rhetoric" used by the rebels was “not appropriate” and acknowledged that the opposition “is not a monolith,” but still praised the overall success of Turkey’s operation inside northern Syria.

“We knew all along that the Turkish forces would be teaming up with some opposition forces, and in this they have been successful. So, let’s keep in mind the greater goal, which was to choke off that stretch of border so that [ISIS] can’t use it,” he said during a press briefing in Washington.
“We’ve discovered this many times in Muslim world, where the US deploys its troops, whether it’s Iraq, or Afghanistan, or Syria, it is seen as the enemy, the occupier. Secondly, the incident highlights the problems the US has been having in identifying moderate Syrian rebels – despite spending billions of dollars 'developing' them - and the fact that this is coming from the supposed allies in the FSA isn’t actually surprising,” Max Abrahms, an associate professor of political science at Northwestern told RT.

The Pentagon says it has allocated 40 special operations forces combatants to participate in the Turkish incursion. According to CNN, the joint effort has been labeled Operation Noble Lance, and is the first time the two forces have fought side by side on Syrian soil since the start of the conflict.

The Damascus government of Bashar Assad earlier condemned Turkey’s crossing of the border a “breach of sovereignty.”

Free Syrian Army jihadists screaming "Allahu Akbar" and murdering unarmed Syrian soldiers who were captured guarding a hospital in Allepo.

(Warning clicking the above link will take you to extremely graphic and distrurbing content)

The evidence of this atrocity was made known to the world in 2014. Since 2014 the Free Syrian Army has nopt only abused and murdered unarmed POWs. They have also partook in the ethnic cleansing of Alawites, Kurds and Christian civilian populations as well. The Obama administration knows this and chose to fund them anyways. The US media knows of these atrocities and just like today's humiliation of US soldiers ignores these crimes and falsely tries to give the western public the impression that the Syrian Army is the war criminal. Anyways, today the FSA turned on its American benefactors. To my US friends, please take note of how your tax dollars are put to work in the mid east.

I note Clinton wants to drag America potentially deeper into this quagmire, by imposing a no-fly zone over Syria to help the above "moderates" topple the Assad regime. Trump by contrast wants to get America out of the regime change business and his administration would improve relations between the United States and Russia......
