Syria’s Islamic Front, a Salafist-dominated rebel faction, will not become the Obama Administration’s new official “US-backed” rebels any time soon, as the group has refused to have any talks with the US.
“The Islamic Front has refused to sit with us without giving any reason,” noted Ambassador Robert Ford, saying the US remains ready to “talk to all parties and political groups in Syria.”
The US interest in the Islamic Front comes as the previous “pro-US” faction, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) continues to lose territory and credibility. The US has cut off aid to the FSA since the Islamic Front seized several warehouses full of aid and chased FSA leader Gen. Idris out of the country.
The Islamic Front apparently didn’t take kindly to the offer of becoming the new FSA, and Syria’s government wasn’t thrilled with the plan either, noting that group’s close ties with al-Qaeda.

The system of Misguided, misunderstood, falsified, nonfunctional democracy, yet negotiating with terrorists of any kind is nothing but misguided, misunderstood, falsified, nonfunctional democracy.
The Obama manipulative politics both at home and his forged democratic policy willing to talk to anyone to see what will come out of the talk, is like, to put a BMW mark on a donkey expecting it to run as one. His wrongful policy wanting to talk to this or that terrorists groups is humiliating, is simply a slap on the face of democracy, yet, there is something els behind that “talking face”, the USG trying to say that we are so misguided, misunderstood, falsified, nonfunctional democrat that we even consider to talk and listen to terrorists or even Hitlers without borders entering Syria, those that are harbored by Turkish government, trained by CIA, given weapons by Saudis and UAE, killing innocents, torturing children, women and elderly yet the democratic USG wants to talk to these people to find out, to find out if there is “good side” that these barbarians might represent?
They are Salafis, they are Wahhabis, they are those that USG used them in Afghanistan and Iraq and killed their leaders, they are ones that Bush regime promised them Afghanistan as their sanctuary yet turned their back on them with the ” mission accomplished” rhetoric, now USG wants to talk to them? This is something out of desperate times by a falsified democratic system where the voting to invade Iraq by democratic senators and republicans needs to rethink their democracy and their relations with apartheid regime and true tyrants in Middle East, which the wrong relations is brought them to be so desperate willing to talk to their own evils. The system is so corrupt where out of feeling for corruption they see and feel nothing but yet another corrupted idea to fool people.
The true and only way out of this mess made possible by Hillary Clinton wanting to expend the Saudis territorial religious, the Saudis, the UAE the French, the Swedish, the Danish, the Germans, the English and those European government who eagerly wanted for NATO to invade Syria is start helping the only legitimate government of Syria making it possible to demolish the root of these barbarians. For Europe to close Saudis and UAE institutions where these people are trained to become whom they are, terrorists. Saudi government, if there is something as such even exist in Saudis Arabia, never, ever will let a church to be built anywhere in Saudi Arabia, and USG wants to talk to their hand made terrorists! The idea is wrongfully wrong, the concept doesn’t fit the word democracy, is simply manipulative politics again.
Published by New York Times. What this man is saying is for Saudi Arabia religious freedom to be expended into countries of interests, there is no democracy, there is no freedom of expression, there is no freedom for women's, there is no freedom of press or anything relating the social political or economic matters to democracy. What he is saying is that a total dictatorial regime based on religious laws set by the kingdoms, not by the vote of people, nor people's rights to chose, but for kingdom rights to implement the rules of dictatorship. Which is one of the reasons for the Swedish monarch appreciating such regime, they want for Sweden to be ruled by tyrants.
Saudi Arabia Will Go It Alone

London — Saudi Arabia has been friends with our Western partners for decades; for some, like the United Kingdom where I serve as ambassador, for almost a century. These are strategic alliances that benefit us both. Recently, these relationships have been tested — principally because of differences over Iran and Syria.

We believe that many of the West’s policies on both Iran and Syria risk the stability and security of the Middle East. This is a dangerous gamble, about which we cannot remain silent, and will not stand idly by.
The crisis in Syria continues unabated. There have been over 100,000 civilian deaths. Most shockingly of all, the Oxford Research Group reports that of the 11,000 victims under 17 and under, more than 70 percent were killed by air strikes and artillery shells deliberately targeting civilian areas.
