Military Review

The weapons supplied by the US to the Syrian opposition are sold over the Internet.

American journalists found out that weapon, which were supposed to be put to the fighters of the so-called moderate opposition in Syria, is now being sold on the Internet by extremists stationed in the north of the Arab Republic.


Employees of CNN television under the guise of customers contacted via Telegram messenger with a resident of the city of Idlib, who is engaged in arms trade. The seller offered journalists not only American M-16 rifles, but also grenade launchers, machine guns, optical sights and body armor.

In addition, he was ready to assist in leaving Syria and carrying out groups of people to the territory of the republic.

According to journalists, the rifles he offered were manufactured at the FN Manufacturing facility in South Carolina. They were provided to the division "30 Division", formed by the Pentagon in 2015 year to support the moderate Syrian opposition and the fight against the "Islamic state *". However, the group was disbanded soon after it was defeated by al-Qaida militants while attempting to carry out a convoy of weapons to Syria.

The Central Command of the US Armed Forces declined to comment on the sale of American weapons through Telegram.

    And you might think that Russian weapons are not sold through the Internet? In Iraq alone, so many of them were captured by the Barmels, enough for more than one division.

      You, my friend, do not confuse warm with soft? Soviet and Russian weapons, which, as you said, are TAKEN !!! in Iraq and suppose even Syria was delivered to legally recognized governments, and not to gangs. It was mainly seized during the fighting !!!! But not given to increase chaos. Well, the fact that they sell both ours and yours is probably there in their time warrant officers with Ukrainian roots served. wassat

        Captured !!!

        And, you, my friend somewhere in the text of the article read that American weapons were transferred directly to the merchant instead of delivery? Or do you think, my friend, an American weapon that the United States OFFICIALLY deliver moderate Syrians can not be captured?

        According to the Americans, the Russian Federation supplies the Afghan Taliban with small arms in the provinces of Helmand, Kandahar and Uruzgan. Of course you, my friend, declare that all this is a vile lie. In the same way as the Americans declare upon the sale of weapons via the Internet. Although we are all swimming too shallow here to know with certainty what, whom, where, why and how much.

          In something, I agree, my friend agrees (I hope not offended by the irony smile ) on the account of swimming (but here we exchange our opinion at least with our colleagues). And on the account of taking American weapons at Plenum, there are many examples of a “very random” drop of weapons and ammunition on the territory of the militants, as well as switching to the side ISIS trained and armed with American troops opposition groups. Something like that)))))

            So I do not mind exchanging opinions. But I’m sure that our specialists are also not white and fluffy at all. Remember at least the Turkish helicopters shot down by the Kurds after the incident. Of course, this is solely my guess.
            According to this, the conclusion is simple - ours are scouts, strangers are spies. And the article is about nothing. Some journalists found out ... What could they find out from a telephone conversation? Compare the numbers of weapons sold with the delivery? Present personally at the transfer-capture?
            So, another suck from my finger, in my opinion.

              I agree for the spies and scouts. I would even put it more rudely, businessmen from bony (they saw such devils in the south). Well, there are specific examples of the sale of weapons and omomuny: I bought Bundesov kits for shooting and soldering from curiosity on an Internet Outskirts of NATO supplies. They offered a lot and not expensive (I know about the arrival of parcels with injuries by mail). The Arabs are the same Hohlotargists. Only a little on frying.

    In earlier times, a scandal would have erupted. And now everything is possible.

    As soon as America refuses to comment, only one conclusion suggests itself - though it hurts my eyes, definitely.

    It is obvious. Turkey had a snout not just in fluff, but in blood. Perhaps they decided to dig a little under Erdogan for accommodations.

    declined to comment
    But how to comment on the fact that the weapons supplied by the United States are in the hands of terrorists and are sold to everyone who asks? It means to recognize at the official level the undeniable fact of arming Americans of outright bandits. Comments with ease can only be given on the action of Assad and the Russian Aerospace Forces, and on false charges.

    Is it a type of advertisement?

      The advertisement is engine of the trade.
      The Yankees were punished by all. We cannot take weapons from us, read, we must take from them! You can order on an Internet, how convenient it is!
