He Said That? 2/12/16

From Mustaf Amin, a political leader of Levant Front, which has received US weapons and is one of the largest rebel alliances fighting Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah for control of Aleppo, Syria.

The rebels now have a responsiblity to change the way they fight. If we don’t get support from our allies in a major way, it will need to transform into guerrilla warfare.

The Wall Street Journal, “Rebels Switch to Guerrilla Tactics,” 2/12/16.

The article states that the rebels “have already started turning to guerrilla tactics such as assassinations, ambushes and hit-and-run attacks.”

If the Levant Front was a US enemy instead of an ally (and it may be, one can never tell in the Middle East) the US government and The Wall Street Journal would label their new tactics terrorism, not guerrilla warfare.

  2. Having studied Guerilla Warfare and COIN theory for almost a decade now the old adage rings true: “One man’s Freedom Fighter is another man’s terrorist.”. Something to consider in the struggle against tyranny, whether that be abroad or here at home.
