Especially since that recent CIA report got released...

WASHINGTON — The Central Intelligence Agency has run guns to insurgencies across the world during its 67-year history — from Angola to Nicaragua to Cuba. The continuing C.I.A. effort to train Syrian rebels is just the latest example of an American president becoming enticed by the prospect of using the spy agency to covertly arm and train rebel groups.

An internal C.I.A. study has found that it rarely works.

The still-classified review, one of several C.I.A. studies commissioned in 2012 and 2013 in the midst of the Obama administration’s protracted debate about whether to wade into the Syrian civil war, concluded that many past attempts by the agency to arm foreign forces covertly had a minimal impact on the long-term outcome of a conflict. They were even less effective, the report found, when the militias fought without any direct American support on the ground.

The findings of the study, described in recent weeks by current and former American government officials, were presented in the White House Situation Room and led to deep skepticism among some senior Obama administration officials about the wisdom of arming and training members of a fractured Syrian opposition.

...


I'm just going to go ahead and LOLOLOLOL @ Comrade for suggesting the US arm insurgencies pretty much all over the Middle East. YET ANOTHER FAILED POLICY SUGGESTION HOMIE.



Where did I suggest that? Oh right I never did.

I supported bombing Libya to stop a slaughter, I supported bombing Assad to stop the civil war(how many people have died since that conversation?) And I support arming the Kurds and bombing Isis. How is that tantamount to wanting to arm every rebel group in the middle east? The peshmerga aren't even rebels.

And? All Turkish Kurds are not in the PKK. The PKK is centered in turkey, not Iraq. The peshmerha don't fight for them and Iraqi Kurds don't either.

Oh I forgot you're a gigantic bigot so all Kurds are PKK even in countries where the PKK isn't a political party.

"Yeah I'm big on generalizations and lumping groups together as I explain the nuances of Kurdish political groups to you. Caught me red handed!
