They are largely trained in Turkey and Jordan, not inside Syria. They were established in March 2013 by a British ex-military officer with $300,000 in seed funding from Japan, the U.K. and the U.S. http://www.wrongkindofgreen.org/tag/psyops/ International Communist League http://www.icl-fi.org/english/wv/1103/syria.html As Marxists, we have no side in the grisly civil war, which has claimed some 400,000 lives and displaced half the country’s population. However, we say that workers internationally do have a side against military intervention by the U.S. and other imperialists. It is these forces that have stoked the flames of the war by providing material and logistical support to the anti-Assad forces. Thus, while we are die-hard opponents of everything the reactionary cutthroats of ISIS stand for, we are for the military defense of ISIS against the imperialists’ armed forces and their proxies in the region. These include the Syrian Kurdish nationalists as well as, in Iraq, the Baghdad government, the Shia militias and the Kurdish pesh merga—who have all been acting as the ground troops of the U.S. military intervention. At the same time, we also oppose the other capitalist powers involved in Syria—such as Russia, Iran and Turkey—and demand that they get out. As Marxist opponents of imperialism, we recognize that any setback for Washington coincides with the interests of the international proletariat, both in the Near East and, crucially, here in the U.S. We aim to turn the multisided disillusionment and anger of working people in the U.S. into class struggle against their capitalist rulers. It is through such struggle that the proletariat can be won to the need to build a revolutionary workers party that will lead the fight for socialist revolution to destroy the imperialist beast from within. From the beginning, the White Helmets scheme was funded by various imperialist powers, including Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which to date has shelled out some 32 million pounds (over $40 million). The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has given out another $23 million through its Office of Transitional Initiatives (i.e., its office of regime change). Japan and several European countries have also sent financial aid to the group. The White Helmets serve as a vehicle for a shadowy public relations outfit called the Syria Campaign, which presents itself as a “non- political” campaign for regular Syrian citizens that is dedicated to civilian protection. But, as Blumenthal writes, “Behind the lofty rhetoric about solidarity and the images of heroic rescuers rushing in to save lives is an agenda that aligns closely with the forces from Riyadh to Washington clamoring for regime change.” The Syria Campaign has organized demonstrations and mobilized pressure for Western intervention to overthrow Assad. The White Helmets documentary itself, according to Blumenthal, “appears to be at least partly the handiwork of the Syria Campaign.” http://www.icl-fi.org/english/wv/1103/syria.html Steemit:  Syria orBlackwater White Helmets Note: notice the anti-west and west conspiracy theory material in steemit.com added below this section - whether or not White Helmets has a dark side, stay tuned into wording and approaches which might indicate a Muslim Mafia slant.  This can include CIA, Mossad and anti-white Europe/American/UK slandering or at least attention gathering. https://steemit.com/news/@fortified/syria-or-blackwater-white-helmets Excerpt: It's concerning to think that if this plan goes ahead then there will be western-backed security forces on the ground supporting western-backed humanitarian groups like the White Helmets.

Constellis combines "best-in-class brands, assets and people within the complex risk management industry" making it the "most diverse provider of risk management services". Harry Legge-Burke, an ex-Special Forces Officer from a long line of British nobility, formed the Olive Group in 2001. In 2005 former high-ranking Coldstream Guard officer and White Helmets founder, James Le Mesurier, joined the group as Vice President. By 2008 he had quit the position to join Good Harbor. Good harbor is owned by Richard A. Clarke, Bushs counter- terrorism czar at the time 9/11 took place. The Olive Group eventually merged with Constellis in 2015. Although James Le Mesurier only worked at the Olive Group for 3 years it would be naive to assume he isn't still involved with the group or any of its subsidiaries in one way or another. The family of companies that make up Constellis are: ACADEMI (Formally Blackwater) International Development Solutions Triple Canopy Centerra AMK9 Edinburgh International Strategic Social National Strategic Protective Services OMNIPLEX Olive Group (Founder of the White Helmets) James Le Mesurier: The Former British Mercenary Who Founded The White Helmets | Mint Press News - 07/31/2017 Over the past two years, enlightening information has been revealed that thoroughly and unequivocally debunks the “humanitarianism” of the White Helmets in Syria, sometimes referred to as the Syrian Civil Defense. Since they were founded in 2013, much of Western media has sought to elevate the White Helmets as the “bravest” and most heroic of Syrians. They have been the subject of a Netflix documentary, which won an Oscar, and has consistently been plastered across TV screens in surprisingly well-produced videos showing them removing children from rubble in war-torn areas claimed by Syria’s “rebels.” Still unable to fully get support for military involvement on the ground, and after years of unsuccessfully trying to other-throw Assad by funding opposition forces, the west now want to use private military contractors like Blackwater to remove Assad from power. It's concerning to think that if this plan goes ahead then there will be western-backed security forces on the ground supporting western-backed humanitarian groups like the White Helmets. This is yet another example of a western- backed coup disguised has humanitarian support. https://steemit.com/news/@fortified/syria-or-blackwater-white-helmets
