Major General Paul E. Vallely weighs in on Syria
By Syrian Opposition Liaison Group (SOLG)
ANTAKYA, TURKEY – Paul E. Vallely, Major General US Army (ret) along with his Middle East advisor Nagi N. Najjar, met with Commander-in Chief of the Free Syrian Army Colonel Riad El Asaad on their latest trip to Turkey and inside the war zone that is Syria.
What is clearly evident is that the United States again are backing the wrong elements in the Syrian rebellion – sending all of the support and logistics to the Muslim Brotherhood/Salafists Syrian Military Council backed by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The FSA nationalistic command under Colonel Riad, which includes the majority of the opposition forces, does not receive any support – either military or logistical.
Financial support and arms flowing through the Supreme Military Council and the Syrian National Council (SNC) have been given to radical Islamic elements that have inserted themselves into the battle field.
The command of the FSA – with the coalition of other defected officers and soldiers from the Syrian Military under Assad – originated to defend innocent protesters and civilians against the brutality and killing of the civilian population of the Assad regime. The true FSA desires to have a good relationship with the United States. During the meetings, the commanders spoke of their desire and aspiration for a Syria that allows for the people to think freely and live in liberty and freedom. They want the support of the United States because they say that the U.S. represents freedom to the world and they want freedom for Syria.
Colonel Riad and his nationalistic military commanders are confident they can overturn the Assad government if the Syrian Air Force can be neutralized and taken out of action. During the meeting with Colonel Riad, he stated they “wished the U.S. would be open to them in a positive way”, they “desire good relations with the United States”.
The true Free Syrian Army is not being represented or supported in Washington, DC. This must change. The U.S. must stop supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafist elements and start supporting the FSA under the command of Colonel Riad.
The true FSA has not received any of the support from the international community, instead they have been marginalized, even though they are the majority of the support on the ground.
