a reply to: lamplighters I'm no fan of fox, but like you I have seen it reported in multiple sources. Half a billion dollars to train up 4 or 5 rebels in action. What a shambles. No wonder people question the wests strategy in Syria. Can't really blame the Russians for this one. What a waste of American tax payers money

That is a lot of money. You have to wonder if there was corruption involved. War has always been a profitable business for some and devastating for others. I hope one day governments will be better than this, not likely but hope is eternal.

So then, what prey tell was the 500 million dollars spent on?
Let me guess, a fleet of Toyota trucks.
