Publisher’s note: Once again, the same POTUS that looks for every opportunity he can find to push his agenda of disarming law-abiding US Citizens is looking to supply $500M in arms, equipment, and training to Syrian Rebels. At least this time the administration is 'only’ going to supply those rebels who have been "vetted” and "screened.” Yeah, we’re only going to supply the 'good’ murdering, peaceful cut-throats; that just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling.
I mean really, what could possibly go wrong with that?! Maybe someone should remind POTUS that it’s these same Syrian Rebels that have been video recorded literally cannibalizing their fallen enemies. Oh I know, it was 'only’ one who did that on video while he and his cheering comrades were shouting "allahu ackbar,” and he explained it away when interviewed by BBC saying he 'had’ to do it in order to strike terror in the enemy.
So I guess that makes it all jiggy with potus and the Senate Armed Services Committee. Interesting note that they invoked the name of allah while butchering a fellow muslim who worshiped the same 'deity.’
How about that every time we supply such aide to any groups in this region, they wind up using the weaponry and training against our own troops?! Let’s not forget that with the exception of our friends in Israel, everyone in that region despises us, and should be looked upon at very least as our potential enemies. I might add, it seems that everyone in the WH despises us as well.
So I have a question for POTUS. If you feel we have all this money just burning a hole in our pockets, would it be too much to ask that it be spent on things like the basics for our homeless Vets, maybe build a real wall on our southern border, tapping our own oil and natural gas reserves, perhaps allow for two or three refineries, or how about paying our troops $15.00 an hour instead of fast food workers? And I know this is just crazy talk, but could we start paying down our debt?! It’s amazing how quickly POTUS forgets about his famous 'sequester’ when it fits his destructive agenda.
Fox News: President Barack Obama is asking Congress for $500 million to train and arm vetted members of the Syrian opposition, as the U.S. grapples for a way to stem a civil war that has also fueled the Al Qaeda inspired insurgency in neighboring Iraq.
The military training program would deepen the Obama administration's involvement in the more than four-year conflict between rebels and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad. If approved by Congress, the program would supplement a covert train-and-assistance program run by U.S. intelligence agencies.
The Senate Armed Services Committee has already approved a version of the sweeping defense policy bill authorizing the Defense Department to provide "equipment, supplies, training and defense services" to elements of the Syrian opposition that have been screened.
