US fuelling Syrian carnage

Jan 30, 2014

The United States increased more than twice its supply of light weaponry and munitions to militants linked to the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA)’s Supreme Military Command in the month of January.

Accordingly, the country has delivered over 600 tons of military aid to militants since the launch of the Geneva II crisis talks in Switzerland on January 22.

The Supreme Military Command is aligned to the Western-backed opposition Syrian National Coalition (SNC) which is currently in talks with the government.

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Feisal al-Meqdad has slammed Washington for supporting “terrorist groups,” with Damascus issuing a separate statement accusing the US of “undermining” the Geneva II talks.

The opposition and its Western supporters insist that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must step down and a transitional government be formed in Syria.

Damascus rejects the demand, arguing that the foreign-backed SNC does not represent the Syrian opposition.

December 16, 2013 - Al-Qaeda Now Has Weapons US Sent To Syria
For those worried that dumping US arms into the Al-Qaeda dominated Syrian opposition areas was a bad idea, you win. After President Obama bypassed a rule on funding terrorists, US arms began flowing to the Syrian opposition. The arms were, in some abysmally stupid theory, supposed to go to the “moderate” opposition only.

Syria gov't slams U.S. rearmament of rebels as undermining Geneva II

2014-1-29

DAMASCUS, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- The Syrian official delegation to the Geneva II conference slammed on Tuesday the U.S. decision to restart sending non-lethal help to the Syrian rebels, saying the move aims to thwart the success of the peace talks, according to the state-run SANA news agency.

Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said the U.S. decision "aims at thwarting the conference," stressing that the side which provides weapons to terrorist groups doesn't care about the conference's success.

"The U.S. decision is a very bad message because Washington has launched this conference, and it should not support the armed terrorist groups as they know that the weapons, which had been previously sent, flowed into the terrorists," Mekdad said, according to SANA.

The remarks came a day after Western reports said that Washington has restarted sending non-lethal aid to the "moderate" rebels in Syria, after suspending its previous aid for a month.

The latest move raised the ire of the Syrian government.

Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said that the U.S. decision reflects Washington's backtracking on the political solution.

He wondered: "How can the U.S. position be supportive to Geneva II and aim at reaching a political solution when at the same time it supports, creates and backs up terrorism, violence and the military option?"

For her part, Syria's Presidential Political and Media Advisor Bouthaina Shaaban said that the U.S. decision is contradictory to the efforts exerted by Russia, the U.S., and the international community for launching the Geneva II conference.

She refuted the U.S. allegations on so-called "non-lethal weapons," saying that all of the weapons that are being funneled inside Syria, end up in the hands of the radical groups.

The Geneva II conference has started last week and will end on Friday. However, no breakthrough has resulted from the conference so far as both the opposition and government delegations are holding tight to their demands.

The Syrian government wants the conference to focus on fighting terrorism while the opposition's delegation wants the establishment of a transitional government with full executives without any role for President Bashar al-Assad.

International conference Syria: 'Stop arming the Syrian opposition !'

US-Secretary-of-St.jpgGENEVA, 6/30/12 - On the international conference on Saturday, U.N. Security General Ban Ki-moon said that the United States and their allies have to stop supplying weapons to the Syrian opposition which are being used against the Syrian government.

"We can not accept that there is an interference in Syria's internal affairs.  We can not impose a 'transitional government' in Syria and we can not demand that President Bashar Assad is excluded from any role in a new Syrian government", said the U.N. Security General.

Ki-Moon, who is known as a spokesman of the American government, claimed in a remarkable way: 'Let us stop with the war propaganda against President Assad and the Syrian government. The creation of civil wars in countries as Syria which can be used for military interventions by NATO, is not the UN's objective.  If we want to prevent massacres, we can not send at the same time weapons. We can not use double standards,” he said.
