Who invented the category of “moderate rebels” anyway?
Can you imagine the headlines if “moderate rebels” were trying to foist an armed rebellion on America?
But apparently it's A-ok if “moderate rebels” attempt a coup in Syria… especially if those “moderate rebels” have been trained and armed by the USA from the get-go.
Armed insurrection would not be tolerated for five minutes in the USA.
But when the armed insurrection is trained and funded by that most exceptional nation, everything is hunky-dory.
America remains a long way from an honest look in the mirror.
