The US fooled the Czechs by selling Czech weapons to terrorist groups

Summary of Disinformation

During the past decades, the US has played the role of the ‘police of the world’. Yet the US has been the one pulling the strings in the background. This is also what they are doing with the crisis in Syria: Czech media wrote that Czech weapons were found in the possession of Syrian Islamic militants, but the Czech government says it did not break any international agreements because the US bought the weapons and then gave them to the terrorist groups.
