Washington knows arms in Syria go to al-Qaeda.
The U.S. administration knows that many weapons, which they send to Syria, go into the hands of the Syrian al-Qaeda branch such as the Jabhat al-Nusra (al-Nusra Front), and the same applies for the heads at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that is processing the arms deliveries to the terrorist groups and jihadist forces on Syrian soil.
Of course, that the US-backed Saudi regime and the Turkish regime under Prime Minister Erdogan helps with the arms supplies to the terrorists fighting in Syria against the secular government of President Bashar al-Assad is even no more simply an open secret anymore, but already a known fact.
An activist with the Anti-War Committee-Chicago, Joe Iosbaker, participated at a forum about an U.S. Intervention in Syria, which was sponsored by the March 19th Coalition. The forum took place on August 3 and the topic was a possible military intervention by the U.S. forces in Syria.
The Anti-War Committee is opposed to an intervention by the United States in Syria and it is very understandable, why they are against such a military intervention in Syria with its not forseeable consequences.
Joe Iosbaker said in his speech at this forum, that the U.S. administration is at war with Syria and that the Anti-War Committee tries to stop that and to prevent a further intervention in the Arab nation. The activist spoke then about some of the wrong ideas, which were encountered in the anti-war movement in the United States while the movement has organized protests against the U.S./NATO/Israeli war on Syria.
For the anti-war activist Joe Iosbaker, it is already wrong to think that Washington is not at war in Syria and that the United States is trying to not get dragged in. The speech by the anti-war activist Joe Iosbaker about a military intervention in Syria by the United States was very interesting and he came to the following conclusion:
First, recognize that the U.S. is at war. Second, in my opinion, the Syrian government ought to be defended. And more than ever the U.S. and the worldwide anti-war and social justice movement must demand, “Hands off Syria!” (Source)
Yesterday, the anti-war activist Iosbaker was interviewed by Press TV and he spoke about the fact that the United States is aware of the situation that the majority of arms it is sending to the terrorists in Syria will end up in the hands of the al-Qaeda-linked jihadist groups. The political analyst further said in his interview with Press TV that the U.S. administration in Washington is sending weapons to Syria, although they know that these weapons are going to the supported terrorist forces on Syrian soil that are aligned with al-Qaeda.
Joe Iosbaker, the leader in the United National Antiwar Coalition, is completely correct with his statements in this new interview from yesterday. For example, the outgoing deputy leader of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Michael Morrell, said recently that there is a risk that the Syrian government in Damascus will collapse and the Arab nation becomes a new haven of al-Qaeda.
Of course, this has not changed the situation that the U.S. President Barack Obama has ordered his administration to provide the terrorist forces fighting in Syria against the secular government and President Bashar al-Assad with weapons, including shoulder-fired rocket-propelled grenades, anti-tank missiles and assault rifles.
The anti-war activist Joe Iosbaker further stated in his recent interview with Press TV that “this imperialist domination of the Middle East that the US desires is frustrated in particular by the Syrian government,” and that the foreign policy by the U.S. administration in Washington would have a central mission to “put the US and the corporate interests that the US foreign policy represents to put them back on top of the world as they were in the 50s and the 60s.”
Joe Iosbaker finally stated that Washington is currently so desperate, given their defeats in Iraq and the defeats currently happening in Afghanistan that they want to prevent another defeat in Syria by any means and even if this means to support terrorists who carry out massacres against the Syrian civilians and cause a huge bloodshed in Syria.
