"We do not consider Al-Qaeda our enemies"- Leading FSA Commander. The "secular FSA" has also lost terrirtory from the extreme Al-Qaeda backed Islamists groups in 5 reported incidents in this week alone! So here we go internal factions within the FSA fighting against each other and a civil war that is going to be even more drawn out and this with rebel groups fighting each other and the allies of the West and the West itself arming will just draw this long bloody civil war out.
