US training Syrian Rebels

  Here we go again.  The US is training Syrian rebel fighters.  According to the Reuters news agency..  This is the same tactic that got us involved in Vietnam.  And had the tactic and training used against us in Afghanistan(the US sent "advisers" and stinger missiles).   Does this mean we will get involved in another useless conflict?

All these aimed for another war: war on Iran.

Afghan leader alleges US, Taliban are colluding

By RAHIM FAIEZ and KIMBERLY DOZIER | Associated Press – 3/10/2013

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Sunday accused the Taliban and the U.S. of working in concert to convince Afghans that violence will worsen if most foreign troops leave — an allegation the top American commander in Afghanistan rejected as "categorically false."

Karzai said two suicide bombings that killed 19 people on Saturday — one outside the Afghan Defense Ministry and the other near a police checkpoint in eastern Khost province — show the insurgent group is conducting attacks to demonstrate that international forces will still be needed to keep the peace after their current combat mission ends in 2014.
