    they don't have a good idea about what's going on too. My view is that the US sees a lot of undesirable stuff going on in the armed opposition and want to distance themselves from the consequences of that. We're now seeing reports that of the 300 armed groups, at least a quarter are al-Qaeda, who have no love for us. Not only that, the US knows that the Salafis (Muslim fundamentalists) also hate the US and there are many of those groups there as well. But we don't have to worry about us too soon. It's likely those groups will start slaughtering Christians and non-Sunni Muslims first before they come for us. We don't really care about the collateral damage of our ventures, do we?
