    It puzzles me how little focused strategy the FSA thugs are able to put together despite the support of the world’s greatest (Assad’s words) nation, the US. Well, ok, destroying whatever comes across as an “enemy”, no matter who, why and what for, is a strategy in itself, I guess. Yes, just as the US president once said: “Who’s not for us, is against us”
    Great strategy that you have adopted there, you thugs!
