Heavy: WATCH: Syrian War Video, Rebels Blast Army Soldiers With U.S. Missile

Video released by a so-called “moderate” anti-government faction known as Jaish al-Izzah, or “Army of Glory,” in the past two weeks give a rare and violent look inside the Syrian Civil War, depicting what the rebel group says are successful attacks by shoulder-fired missiles against soldiers and vehicles of the Syrian armed forces — the government military fighting to defend the regime of President Bashir al-Assad.

I doubt they are coming directly from the US, but I bet if you check Turkish and Saudi Arabian stockpiles, they may be a little lower. Just looking at these videos shows how much of a quagmire the Russians and Iranians are in. The US wisely chose to keep boots off the ground, except for Special Forces. Which can come and go. They are also only focusing on Isis. But the real issue for the u.s. his, what will happen when Isis Falls and Western Syria is essentially open for the taking by anyone. Assume that power vacuum will be filled by the Syrian Army. But do they have the resources to do that right now. Such a move could dilute their Frontline forces, and simply create more Targets in the open desert.
