  •  The FSU is generally not trusted or liked (6+ / 0-)

    in Turkey. Millions of Turkish citizens have relatives who live in Syria and are in regular contact with them and get information directly from them - not from Tweets, press releases or YouTube. I am in contact with many of them and almost all of them dislike and don`t trust the FSU because of what they hear from their relatives.

    A series of events along the border and in the camps set up for Syrians is causing a public backlash against the FSU in Turkey.

    Government officials have begun to refer to the FSU as 'independent groups' or 'seperate groups' or 'different groups' which is government-speak for rogue groups.

    Lamb chop, we can quibble what to call it, but I think we can both agree it's creepy.
