In watching this laudatory VICE documentary on Jabhat Thuwwar Souria (Syrian Revolutionaries' Front), the re-formulated FSA, and the open, unabashed US/NATO contras in this conflict (as you see quite clearly in the documentary) from early this year, several things stand out:
1 - These are the guys that the pro-Syrian "revolution" leftists in the West never have any qualms about supporting.
2 - The fact that they're based out of so many depopulated "formerly Christian" and "formerly Alawite" towns and villages... how do you suppose those towns and villages got that way?
3 - Listen to the way they describe themselves and talk about themselves. Listen to what they have to say about the Shia.
4 - Remember, these are the 'good', non-takfiri "revolutionaries."
