The FSA can claim all they want that they lack military aid, but the fact of the matter is, they received plenty of aid, and even more money. ~ All sorts of chemical weapons (sarin gas and chlorine), were given to them (which they used). ~ Anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons were given to them (which they used). ~ Plenty more sophisticated weapons, radio and communications equipment and BILLIONS of dollars were poured into this fake army over the last 3 years. ~ Many of these commanders werent even fighting in Syria any longer. ~ They were living in lavish homes inside of Turkey according to some of the militants who quit. ~ Not to mention, ISIS and ISIL have been eliminating FSA as they know they are working for the US and the US interests. ~ The militants know they have been defeated, and Im sure are sick of fighting a fight they know they cannot win. ~ Its a dead end road in Syria for the “FSA.”
FSA Commander quits “FSA” to join ISIL because the US and its allies control the “FSA.”
He claims even the Israeli defense forces train them in Jordan.
In fact, one militant claims ISIL gets their orders from Prince Saud Al-Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia, and given his close relationship to Secretary of State John Kerry, I would not doubt it one bit.

Nine top officers from the opposition Free Syrian Army resigned Saturday over shortages and mismanagement of military aid from donor countries to their uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.
“We seek your (the rebels’) forgiveness in resigning today, leaving behind our responsibility as chiefs of battlefronts and (opposition) military councils,” the officers said in a statement.
Some Western military aid has trickled into Syria in recent weeks, but overall the United States has been reticent to arm rebels over fears advanced weapons could end up in jihadist hands.
Weapons shipped to Syria from the West, but more significantly from Gulf countries, are usually sent to specific groups, rather than to the Supreme Military Council, which was meant to coordinate the rebel military effort.
Lieutenant-Colonel Mohammed Abboud told AFP he and the eight other rebel officers resigned because the “SMC (Supreme Military Council), has no role any more. Donor countries have completely bypassed it.”
Instead, donor countries have funneled military aid, including US-made anti-tank missiles, to factions of their choosing, Abboud said.
“While we thank donor countries for their assistance, it has been really insufficient, and simply too little to win the fight,” Abboud said.
Rebels have repeatedly urged the West to give them specialized weaponry to help tip the balance in the war against Syria’s army and those fighting alongside it, including Lebanon’s powerful Hezbollah movement.
Earlier in June, President Barack Obama said Washington would “ramp up” support for rebels, signalling a change in US policy.
But, faced with successive military defeats around Homs and Damascus province, rebels say they lack the aid needed to change the course of the war.
“We are fighting both the army and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS),” Abboud said, referring to a jihadist group operating in Syria and Iraq that Syria’s opposition turned against in January.
“Yet we haven’t got the help we need from countries who say they support our demands for democracy and a civil state.”
ISIS has been battling a range of other rebel groups, from the FSA to Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front, since January.
They picture some of the militants more interested in watching the opening to the world cup in Brazil. After all, why think of fighting and dying for a US interest cause, when you could watch the World Cup? I wonder if ISIS is watching the same?
There are MANY ex-terrorists, or men who went to join the FSA, saw what the FSA was really about, and quit. Their stories are all over youtube.
