... maybe it wasn't such a good idea.

"Syrian rebels’ pledge of allegiance to al Qaeda complicates Western intervention strategies

The West is floundering over how to respond to Syria’s worsening civil war, especially after a leading Islamist rebel group pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda, opposition officials and experts say.

The move by the Al-Nusra Front this week has complicated efforts by US and European officials to come up with unified strategy to support the rebels battling the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

After pushing for weeks to lift a European embargo so arms could be supplied to the rebels, France and Britain have recently backed away from the initiative amid fears weapons could fall into the wrong hands."

Was it a good idea to send F-16s to Morsi?

How about not supporting dictators in the first place, and stopping the crushing of all secular socialist movements as the US has consistently done in the Middle East for decades? The result as we have sadly seen is that the only popular movements that remain are fundamentalist Islamic ones, the kind that gravitate towards Al Qaeda.

So they have joined the CIA?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
