The Pentagon has confirmed that it is currently training “dozens” of “Syrian rebels” to ostensibly fight Daesh, but Washington apparently has something else in mind since there are local ground forces capable of defeating terrorism and there is no need to send additional fighters to the warzone, analyst Sharmine Narwani told Radio Sputnik.
It is all about the timing. The success of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies “undermines” the West and its proxies’ “position and their relevance” at the negotiating table in Geneva, the expert noted.
After all, the Pentagon’s previous effort aimed at empowering so-called moderate ‘Syrian rebels’ to help them tackle Daesh turned out to be a disaster – one that left a major stain on the agency’s reputation.
US defense chief Ashton Carter said last September that the $500 million program produced five or six fighters. The rest, including US-provided military equipment, were absorbed by al-Qaeda, Daesh and other terrorist groups.
