What’s The Big Difference Between NATO’s Moderates And Extremists In Syria?

isis_constitutionBy Brandon Turbeville

So what’s the big difference between the “moderate” terrorists and the extremist terrorists running rampant in Syria today? At one time, we were told there were no terrorists at all. Then, we were told terrorists were indeed present but that there were also moderate, secular, democracy-loving freedom fighters in the country. Now, after the nature of the so-called “rebels” has been revealed ad infinitum by the alternative and independent press, it is admitted that the “fighters” in Syria are terrorists but, apparently, some are moderate and some are extreme.

Of course, they all have the same goal of Sharia. They all hate minorities, Christians, Alawites, Shiites, etc. They all torture. They all rape. We could go on and on. In the world of the West’s “rebels,” there is not one shred of difference between any of the armed groups fighting against the secular Syrian government besides the names they call themselves.

Still, we are told there are clear differences and that the U.S. State Department knows just what they are. Only, they aren’t telling the American people. Or the Russians. Or the Syrians. Or anybody. The “moderate” terrorists are thus a very mysterious force, a group of which we may speak but also one that never shows itself.

Of course, there are groups that the United States admits are brutal killers but somehow rationalizes to the public that they are “our” brutal killers. The U.S. can, at times, be forced to admit that the groups it supports as “freedom fighters” have committed atrocities, rapes, murders, torture, and establishment of Islamic theocracy upon unwilling inhabitants. Essentially, the U.S. can admit (when pressured) that these groups have the same ideology as ISIS, although the State Department will never say these exact words.

Thus, it is clear that any designation of terrorist groups as “extremist” or “moderate” is obviously based on political motivation and geopolitical designs, not the nature or action of the terrorist group in question. If that were the case, then Ahrar al-Sham, Jaish al-Islam, and other groups would easily be listed as terrorist organizations that would subsequently not be covered under the “ceasefire” agreement. After all, there is no distinguishing characteristic that sets these groups apart from ISIS or Nusra other than a name.

But when the Russians attempted to remove these groups from the list of non-protected terrorists in Syria (terrorists protected at the insistence of the West), the United States, Britain, France, and Ukraine rushed to their rescue and blocked the Russian proposal. This is, of course, despite the fact that both of these groups, which make up around half of the “Syrian opposition forces” thanks to Western name changes, have repeatedly worked together with Nusra and ISIS forces. Jaish al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham have both worked so closely with ISIS and Nusra that the groups themselves are virtually interchangeable. Nevertheless, the U.S. is only digging its own international public relations grave with its refusal to designate known and obvious terrorists as precisely that, particularly when it has launched campaigns of destruction and death across the world on the basis of allegedly “fighting terror.”

The Russians have now forced the Western nations to admit that, despite their rhetoric, terrorist organizations are doing their bidding and have never truly been the targets of NATO forces. While the Western public remains entirely befuddled as to the nature of the crisis in Syria (many do not even know there is a Syrian crisis) Western propaganda has created such a complex and distorted view of the situation that any newcomer or casual observer would find it incredibly difficult to navigate through the lies and deceit.

For the rest of the world, however, much of that propaganda is ridiculous and transparent and, for that reason as well as many others, the United States and NATO are losing more and more credibility by the day.

    UN Agenda 21 critic and activist Rosa Koire noted on her blog last year that the Univ. of CA at Davis library placed her book Behind The Green Mask UN Agenda 21 in a non circulating area with other examples of “extremist literature” such as KKK pamphlets.

    One man’s freedom fighter is another man’s extremist or terrorist, just as one man’s utopian commune is another man’s labor camp. It’s all in the spin, framing, and crafting seductive narratives to engineer a zeitgeist.

    18 USC 2331 Definitions; unequivocally define the so called moderate rebels, as TERRORISTS!
    18 USC 2339 A-C make it a felony for ANYONE to give any type of aid to known or EVEN SUSPECTED terrorists.

    The US gvt has openly and repeatedly admitted to giving aid to what their own definitions tell them are TERRORISTS!

    These admissions and actions “aid” along with their own definitions, make the US gvt a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION!

    The opposition to the Assad government are sitting in the Syrian Parliament, elected by the Syrian people. Therefore any group taking up arms against the government can be classified as an armed insurgency and be dealt with accordingly by the Syrian government and those it has asked for assistance. Any foreign entity. like the U.S. led NATO, interfering in Syria can be accused of committing serious crimes under international law. The fact that Kerry has just recently said [promised] that there would be endless war unless Assad steps down serves to point out who the current main guilty party is, the Obama administration and its shadow government backers. For the forces for international law and order to be restored the USD as world reserve currency must be broken. The western Apex Elites will then not be able to simply print the money they need for such operations and the whole edifice will come crashing down. That the average western citizen would be greatly affected by this is a small price to pay for a return to sanity in international law and order and may avert a third world war which would threaten the very existence of civilization and life on the planet, if in all probability, that war should result in full nuclear weapons use.

    The US is betraying the World for its own ulterior motives, mostly economic in nature. Assad must go, not because he is a monstrous tyrant but because he treats with both Russia and China economically. You see both nations want to use Syria to transport oil and gas via pipelines to Europe and the US refuses to allow it.
