If the current US administration is not concerned about US interests why should the Syrian Mujahadeen Rebels care or look out for US interests?
One leader is golfing and gritting his jaw bone, the other is yachting and enjoying the sea salt.
The US is toast to that region.
Only Israel (and Jordan) are trying to hold on by a thread and the President is doing his best to destroy their confidence in us, not much left, Israel will act alone on Iran while Obama draws another red line and says, “all options are on the table, and I MEAN it”!

GEN Dempsey might be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but his statements qualify him as not the sharpest knife in the drawer. That the U.S. should even consider involvement in a Shi'ite vs. Sunni fight over Syria is incomprehensible. Muslims have been killing each other for over 1,400 years. This is a normal thing that they do and a win-win for Western Civilization. Stand back and pass the popcorn; do NOT get involved in this civil war.
