Just Peachy...U.S Offficials to Sit Down and Hold Talks With al Qaeda Animals from Syria

Let's face it, there's no monster on this Earth that Barack Hussein Obama won't sit down and talk with.

Scum on scum, film at 11.

The story comes from The Jerusalem Post.

Syrian Islamist rebels to meet US officials, say oppositions sources

BEIRUT/ISTANBUL - Syrian rebel commanders from the Islamic Front which seized control of bases belonging to Western-backed rebels last week are due to hold talks with US officials in Turkey in coming days, rebel and opposition sources said on Saturday.

The expected contacts between Washington and the radical fighters reflect the extent to which the Islamic Front alliance has eclipsed the more moderate Free Syrian Army brigades - which Western and Arab powers tried in vain to build into a force able to topple President Bashar Assad.

The talks could also decide the future direction of the Islamic Front, which is engaged in a standoff with yet more radical Sunni Muslim fighters from the al-Qaida-linked Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

A rebel fighter with the Islamic Front said he expected the talks in Turkey to discuss whether the United States would help arm the front and assign to it responsibility for maintaining order in the rebel-held areas of northern Syria.

He declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the talks, and gave no further details. Diplomatic sources in Turkey said that US Syria envoy Robert Ford was expected in Istanbul soon but his schedule was not yet confirmed.

The Islamic Front, formed by the unification of six major Islamist groups last month, seized control a week ago of weapons stores nominally under the control of the Free Syrian Army's Supreme Military Command (SMC).

It has since said it was asked to take over the base by the SMC to protect it from attack by ISIL fighters. Whether or not the move was requested, it demonstrated how little power the Western-backed SMC wields in rebel-held Syria.

An SMC rebel commander also said he had been told the Islamic Front would hold talks with US officials in Turkey in the coming days.

The infighting and rivalries among the rebels have undermined their fight against Assad in Syria's 2-1/2 year civil war, which has killed more than 125,000 people according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The conflict has also reduced whole city districts across Syria to rubble, causing tens of billions of dollars of damage, driven 2 million refugees to seek safety abroad and made millions more homeless and vulnerable to a winter storm which has covered the region in snow and biting rain.

From previous discussion.....

And what? America is the first squeaky clean superpower?

The difference Dhuhnmharu between you and I is, that I can accept the shortcomings of my nation. You on the other hand think a bankrupt, infrastructurally decrepit, culturally blasé country like America is still exceptional.

Maybe it's best you keep on thinking that. It'll save the world a lot of trouble. Move ahead while you guys are still daydreaming about the good ol days.

And Holger....don't worry about your computer. Just put it on your tab. The $1 trillion dollar tab.

what a bunch of BS from you Xi Of course Ghat Bastion of truth and culture and modern infrastructure where politicians rip off most of the money destined to the people. As for the 1 trillion, it could turn into bad debt . Then again if it were noit fior America, China would still be in the dark ages. Only through the Chinese theft of information from our computers have they been able to move forward. They do this because they are devoid of the means to create their own genius. So follow the red book Xi. You see Xi Americans an leave america go elsewhere to avoid some unpleasantness in America. Chinese inscrutable types are simply stuck can't go. Those that do get out see the writing on the Chinese wall and its not so sweet in riceville. And lastly you love to poke sharp sticks into the american eye. Remember dearest Xi that when you kick a tiger in the ass, you had better have something really good to deal with its teeth .. China does not have that which it will need to deal with the teeth.

Fair enough. But bad debt could also mean default on your end. Bad debt could mean the end of the dollar as the global reserve currency. You know well that is the only thing propping up your paper economy, that status.

Yeah real smart on your end wasn't it? De-industrialized your country for short term profits.

A tiger? Perhaps. But a future paper one in the making. Teeth are no good if you have no funding for them.

I truly cannot believe how easy it has been to lure America into geo- strategic traps. Iraq certainly had to be the cherry on top. A conflict 30 years in the making.

Seeing your violent swings to just a few jabs can perhaps explain the reason for the strategic lunges, lurches and blunders America makes. It provides an interesting insight into the psyche of a nation obsessed more with image than substance.

I wonder what your reaction will be when by 2016 we will become the largest economy by GDP.

An apoplectic stroke? I hope not.
