Who is the Free Syrian Army? Please Explain…

As the civil war in Syria rages on, it is not always clear who is fighting the government.
The Free Syrian Army, an umbrella group of fighters, has been on the front lines since the middle of 2011.
The Free Syrian Army (FSA) formed in July 2011 by a group of officers who defected from the Syrian military largely in response to orders to fire on peaceful protesters labeled as terrorists. Defection, however, is dangerous. Soldiers who do not fire on civilians risk imprisonment, torture and death.

The FSA is headed by Col. Riad al-Asaad (no relation to President Bashar al-Assad) who was injured in a car bomb in March, 2013 (pictured in a hospital). Brigadier General Salim Idris has in effect commanded since Dec. 2012. Idris has called for robust Western intervention.

Abdel Jabbar Akaidi, FSA head in Aleppo province
Akaidi believes that attacks on government targets such as airports, command centers and missile launchers would cripple the regime. Senior government military officers have reportedly been moved from such sites following President Obama’s call for missile strikes. (Sept. 5, 2013, 12:42 p.m.)

President Obama has said that the U.S. has only provided non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels. U.S. officials and rebel commanders told the Los Angeles Times that the CIA and U.S. special operatives have secretly trained rebels in the use of anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons since 2012.  (June 21, 2013, 5:44 p.m.)

Rebels have had a difficult time holding onto territory. As the fighting has dragged on, the Syrian government has given up control of most of the north in favor of the coast and the south. Rebel control of territory is divided between the FSA and religious extremist factions that gain local favor with handouts.  (Sept. 5, 2013, 6:02 a.m.)

Not all of the fighters in the FSA come from the ranks of the Syrian army and not all of the rebels are affiliated with the FSA. Concerns about religious extremists, particularly those with ties to Al-Qaeda such as Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, have persisted.

Media descriptions of the rebels vary. Those opposed to the Syrian government like Qatar’s Al Jazeera tend to play up the FSA, while those with the government like Hezbollah’s Al Manar emphasize the role of religious extremists. Western press often say the FSA is divided and competes with extremists.  (Sept. 5, 2013, 1:17 p.m.)
While the FSA has at times fought beside fighters in religious groups, the 2 have become increasingly opposed. The FSA has also split from official political opposition groups and been accused of brutality. All these factors have raised questions as to who will control Syria after fighting ends.

Perception of Morsi and Moslem Brotherhood by Urban Egyptians?

I usually present various opinions and different perspectives of viewing an event or issue in order for the reader to form his own mind, and end up extending my opinion in a separate article.
I decided to repost the comment with minor editing, particularly that the news media are keeping the upheaval in Egypt under lid, and taking Syria “Chemical weapon strike” as an excuse to diffuse the many calamities spreading in the world.
The comment reads:

“i read some articles of your blog and it’s really smart… however this (above) article confusing me to the core.

In fact I don’t care about this leftofacist nomo choko but i will be really disappointed if this is your opinion… The muslim brotherhood is an islamofacist entity and collaborating with islamofacists worldwide .
1- their supporters openly wave al Qaeda flags and wear bin laden t shirts.
2- Morsy and his lunatic sheikhs and TV channels preached hatred violence toward Egyptian Shiaa Moslems , Egyptian Christians , jews , and all Egyptian people.
3- Morsy bring lunatic salafi wahabi imams from Saudi Arabia and Qatar to preach violence and hatred in the main Egyptian state TV! and all his channels .
4- Morsy and his brotherhood was convicted of treason according to lower Egyptian court when he was in power: he collaborate with islamofacist terrorist international groups “hamas , hizbollah , alqaeda” to kill Egyptian army officers , police officers , and Egyptian citizens … attacking Egyptian jails to free him and his terrorist group.
5- He gave orders to release all convicted islamofacist terrorists from jails .
6- Morsy , his brotherhood and his salafi wahabbi sheykhs openly support the killing of shia muslims and the results were the killing , slaying of 4 Egyptian shia muslim imams in Egypt. It’s the first killing of shia muslims in egypt in the last 1000 years ! I have the video but i don’t want to share it here it’s very graphic very disturbing video of the supporters of morsy killing egyptian shia muslims …(the video was displayed in many channels)
7- His brotherhood accused egyptian christians as “the only force running the opposition parties out of hate to islam ” which is a pure lie and ultra ignorant hate speech by the lunatic bortherhood and their terrorist salafi wahabi supporters. The results was the burning of 40 church and killing of many Egyptian christians.
8-  Morsy and his brotherhood and salafi wahabis condemned the egyptian judges openly and accused them of corruption without any evidence .
9-  Morsy and his brotherhood and his salafi wahabi sheykhs called egyptians who oppose them “infidels kafirs deserve death ” and this lunatic ex president even quote such terrorist jihadi salafi wahabi fatwas on his official FB page!
10- They tailor-made a Constitution out of their own islamofacist beliefs and rejected all others who refused this made up constitution: the constitution was only made for muslim salafi sunnis and deny the rights of christians , bahais , shia and anyone else .

The list of scandals and terrorist islamofacist activities are endless and i can’t write everything here .
i don’t think that smart man like you would support the muslim brotherhood and salafi wahabis…
