Support for insurgents fighting the Syrian government of Bashar Assad has now backfired on the West and is turning into a nightmare.

Al-Qaeda associated groups, which are supported by some US regional allies, are fighting and gaining more territory from the Western backed Free Syrian Army.

On Thursday, the US and Britain suspended the delivery of aid to insurgents after a group of insurgents linked to al-Qaeda seized the warehouses of American-supplied arms.

However, American officials said the suspension was temporary and that the aid, which is supplied by the US State Department, could start flowing again.
