If the Syrian rebels are aided by Al Qaeda, doesn’t that make anyone aiding the rebels de facto Al Qaeda supporters?
I have not been following that brouhaha over there so I do not know what is going on, I am sure some people love to hear I don’t know something. Bases of this question here, I get the impression that the old nemesis of the US Al Qaeda is helping the Syrian rebels. If that is true, and the rebels win, would it be a far stretch in thinking they will give some kudos and perks to Al Qaeda? So anyone helping the rebels win will be a de facto helper to Al Qaeda by allowing an Al Qaeda friendly government to set up in Syria. If that fact is known, how can anyone back the rebels and not help Al Qaeda as a byproduct of that help?
