Foreign Backers and the Marginalization of the Free Syrian Army

Here an excellent article on what happened to the ‘Free Syrian Army’ movement in 2015 and 2016: Foreign Backers and the Marginalization of the Free Syrian Army.

Not only the regime of Bashar al-Assad, or the IRGC and Russians, but especially such supposed ‘backers’ of the Syrian insurgency like the USA, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, are creating themselves the proxies they prefer.

In this scenario, there is no place for a sincere (as naive as this might sound) movement of Syrians longing to remove the Assad regime.
