Revenge Being Meted Out on ISIS linked Sunni Tribes of Iraq – FrontLine “Iraq Uncovered”

This Front Line documentary — “Iraq Uncovered‘ — on Iraqi Sunni tribes & the revenge that is being meted out on them by Shia militias that follow behind US and Iraqi regular military is a cautionary tail for Syria. The same thing is likely to take place in Syria at the hands of both the YPG (Kurds) and Syrian Arab Army. For all that the US claims to be trying to contain Iran, it is clear that the US military strategy in Iraq is works in tandem, even if only tacitly, with Iran. Iran and the Shia militias are playing clean up and extending their influence in the region thanks to superior US military might and spending. The US may have little choice in doing this because it has prioritized the destruction of ISIS. Allowing Shiite sectarian troops is the quickest way to fight Sunni extremism. I cannot help but believe that this is the “Great Sorting Out” unfolding in all its horribleness.

The alliance between rebels and Nusra terrorists is a major blow to whatever is left of rebels’ credibility. Short term military gains will be dwarfed by long term political loss as the result of befriending an organization that is deemed a terrorist group by most of the world. Rebels denounced the regime for bombing civilian areas and allying with Russia and Iran but they are shelling every Syrian city they can reach, working with terrorists and playing stooges for KSA and Qatar !!
By the way, the new moda now in opposition media is calling terrorists Fasael and Muqawamah (Brigades and Resistance groups).

Turkey is behind lots of the action taking place now.

Turkey wants to shovel the cards, as they say…Their incursion into Syria is hitting a dead end soon…

I expect an attack in the mountains near Latakia, plus West of Aleppo of course…

The Islamic State is going to cut the Khnaser road cutting Aleppo for a while…

The attack against al-Raqqa is eminent, but when?

Again: the future holds nothing bot war…

Joshua is right, it is best to prevent Nusra and their supporters from having a piece of Syria. The rebels had 6 years to do something good for Syrians and they failed miserably. The alliance between rebels and Nusra (and at one time Isis) did not receive enough attention from western media but those who know Syria realized that we were witnessing a malignant shift in the war and the uncovering of who rebels really are. Chicken poop can not be used to make chicken soup, when you rise against a brutal and corrupt regime in the name of freedom and democracy but take Nusra et al as allies you are copying the behavior of an abused wife who leaves her thuggish husband and run with her kids to live with a drug dealer. There was plenty of reasons for Syrians to rise against the regime but it is the average Syrian who paid for the sins of turkey and the GCC who sold Syrian blood and treasure to win influence and fight Iran !!

Qaddafi’s downfall can only be cheered even as one is horrified by his brutal end and the unruly vengeance and looting that has overtaken several towns and parts of Libya. Unfortunately, it is easy to envisage similar destruction and violence being visited on Syria as so many now predict civil war . The government’s primary tactic for regaining control — inducing fear — increases the desire for retribution. Those of us with family in Syria are plotting ways to get them out as the situation becomes ever more violent.
