The Kurdish FSA told me they are the key to protecting minorities in Syria and when the regime falls they will protect the Alawis w/ guns.
We saw many Kurds from Afreen in Syria and could see Afreen but PKK has it totally taken over.
Kurds in FSA warned if secular fighters like them aren't armed by the west then al-Qaeda will take place of void and are now.
The FSA I was with were so secular many drank very open minded and hate Ikhwan, Jabhat Nusra, and other Islamist extremists but no support.
