Things are not always as they appear. The video link below is about 7 minutes long and gives insight into what will likely happen if Syrian President Assad falls to rebel forces.
As the video reports, the majority of rebel forces in Syria are not Syrians, but two groups, the largest group an Islamist group, a branch of al Qaeda (the minority group is the Free Syrian Army reported to be composed of Syrian military defectors):
- Al-Nusra, an al Qaeda branch which announced its creation in January, 2012. The group was designated by the United Nations, the United States in December 2012, Australia in June 2013 and the United Kingdom in July 2013, as a terrorist organization;
According to the video, the United States is reported to have positioned 300 Marines on the border of Syria and Jordan. Recent news reports are that the United States is readying for an attack of some type due to the recent chemical weapons attack on Syrian populations alleged to have occurred at the hands of Assad. The problem is that if America aligns with rebel forces and Syrian President Assad is removed from office, Syria will likely fall into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood (through Al-Nusra). The Russian response is that any action against Syrian President is premature. The Russians have also warned the United States not to repeat its mistakes of the past in the Middle East. The Iranian response to any action against the Syrian President is highlighted below:
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday U.S. intervention in Syria would be “a disaster for the region”, the ISNA state news agency reported, as Western powers made plans to hit Damascus over a chemical weapons attack.
