Reported along the peripheries of the Western media, it was reported recently that some 3,000 so-called “moderate rebels” of the “Free Syrian Army” had defected to the “Islamic State” (ISIS). While not the first time so-called “moderates” have crossed over openly to Al Qaeda or ISIS, it is one of the largest crossovers that has occurred.
With them, these 3,000 fighters will bring weapons, cash, equipment, and training provided to them by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United States, the UK, and perhaps most ironic of all in the wake of the recent terror attack in Paris, France. Indeed, ISIS and Al Qaeda’s ranks continue to swell amid this insidious network of “terror laundering” that is only set to grow.
When “moderates” appear inevitably destined for the ranks of ISIS, and with US weapons falling into Al Qaeda’s hands along with entire brigade-sized defections taking place, what the world would last expect is for the US to prepare another brigade-sized army to arm, fund, train, and turn loose inside of Syria. But that is precisely what the US is planning to do.
The FSA groups who pledged allegiance to ISIS are the following:
1. Liwaa Al-Farouq – Approximately 300 fighters
2. Liwaa Al-Qusayr – Approximately 600 fighters
3. Liwaa Al-Turkomen – Approximately 400 fighters
4. Liwaa Al-Haqq – Approximately 400 fighters
5. Kataeb Al-Mouqna – Approximately 200 fighters
6. Liwaa Matfareeq – Approximately 500 fighters
7. Suqour Al-Fatih – Approximately 200 fighters
8. Liwaa 77 – Approximately 400 fighters
As ISIS continues to spread their presence on the border of Lebanon and Syria, many rebel groups have found this organization more appealing than their predecessors due to their success in eastern and northern Syria. The Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra) – who fought ISIS in Deir Ezzor – has seemingly repaired relations in eastern Lebanon and western Syria. The 2 militant groups have been spotted working together during armed engagements with loyalist forces in ‘Assal Al-Ward and Rankous.

Got anything worth reading besides inforwars?
I mean, I've seen this info presented in other "alternative media"...but if your thread is going to go anywhere here you're going to have to do better than infowars.
Got anything more legit than that?
Funny how they can know there is a plot, and that it is in its final stages, but don't know what the target is, or who is doing it. Funny. Really funny. Almost too weird to be believed, in fact
Hyped up or not, one has to be blind not to acknowledge the threat that is the spread of Islamic extremism.
It is sewing DEEP roots in many places and is like a cancer.
You keep repeating your same talking points, day in and day out, across the boards here. More often than not, with little to back your opinions.
I need proof?
The war on terror is contrived? That US hegemony isn't real or ongoing
By the way, my 'across the boards', 'all the same' opinions are but one drop in a small bucket. Glad you think it carries some weight. I rather doubt that.
Like I said, my sources inside Syria paint a rather different picture than yourself.
Is your statement a little like "official sources say" or "experts agree" that the media uses all the time?
We're just supposed to believe some unnamed, anonymous sources you say you have "inside Syria" because you say so, right?
...went straight to the perceived "attack" on you, didn't you? You're a rather hostile fellow. Chill man. I'm not the enemy bro)
