So it is the FSA? pro-Assad media is reporting the attacks are Tahrir

Even though HTS is still a "nationalist jihadist" org unlike daesh?

Sometimes I wonder if these various formations are reflective less of how one stands on sharia law and much more on access to weapons and funding. If I was a Syrian living in a town that was desperately in need of anti-tank weapons, I'd hide my Salman Rushdie novels, grow a beard and forsake alcohol to get my hands on something that could stop the Baathist killing machine in its tracks.
