CIA spies 'smuggle 14 Stinger missiles into Syria so rebels can take out regime warplanes'
Mirror News ^ | 18 August 2012 | Chris Hughes

Posted on 08/18/2012 9:27:38 AM PDT by moonshot925

CIA spies have smuggled up to 14 Stinger missiles into Syria so rebels can defend themselves from air strikes.

The ground-to-air weapons have been delivered across the Turkish border to the Free Syrian Army and were partly paid for by Saudi Arabia, a security source claimed.

President Bashar al-Assad’s MIG-23 warplanes and helicopter gunships have killed more than 1,000 people.

The only secrets we have in this country are Obama’s Birth Certificate, Social security number, and college records.

Everyting else is an open book including the CIA.

Now as far as I am concerned we have no business with our CIA helping Muslim rebels so they can wipe out Christians when they win. But, and here is the but,WTF kind of CIA are we running when information like this is out almost as soon as the delivery of the missiles, and while Soviet Nuclear attack Submarines are prowling in the Gulf of Mexico and building bases in Venezuala??

WTF is going on?

What could possibly go wrong?

President Hussein’s Brotherhood friends wouldn’t transfer one or two of those to their Islamist borthers tobring down an El Al passenger flight, would they?

Or an American C-17 on approach to Kabul?

You want to know what is going on? Ubama wants the Islamist to defeat every ally we have.

If they don’t use them all up, they can take down some airliners or IDF planes.

This is Ubama’s and (future Supreme Court Justice Holder’s) Middle East version of “Fast and Furious.” What could go wrong with this?

“WTF is going on?”

It’s going to be 100x worse, if that POS gets another 4yrs. He’s got nothing left to lose, and will dictate by EO, bypassing the Constitution and Congress. 93% of America has no frigging clue as to what’s coming, as long as their TVs work and toilets flush. God help us all.

This article pretty-well lays it out:

We provide the Stingers, and we provide the brief instruction on their use. However we do *not* provide maintenance or replacement parts, and this matters.

Stingers are “use ‘em or lose ‘em” weapons. Their batteries are not standard and run down in short order, and unless maintained, their electronics fail quickly as well.

We long ago figured out that our weapons, while they could be used easily enough, should not be allowed to leave the area where we want them used.

This is so that the Muslim brotherhood, and other terrorists can take control of Syria, and start crucifixions of Christians there as well.

All of these moves are consistent with a plot from the inside to destroy the United States of America. To bring us down. Unfortunately no one wants to see that truth. No one that is in a position to do anything about it...

WTF is going on?

The New World Order is being finalized.

Probably on Dec 21, 2012, they will make it official.

Welcome to the New Socialist Western Hemisphere. Goodbye United States. Sharia Law is being used to implement Communist Rule. World Wide Organized Crime is winning the battle for supremacy over the resources of the planet.

Paranoid? Tinfoil-hatter? Sure.

But I assure you it IS happening.

There might still be a few patriots in the government who haven't been purged by the Islamist tyrant in the White House.

And they might feel their oath to uphold the Constitution is more important than kneeling in subservience before Emperor Obama.

All fine and good. However, we have no business taking any sides in this civil war. Nothing good can come of it.

It's not his program. Although he will take credit for it. It has been 'in swing' for quite a while, longer than you might imagine.

Obama has been doing this sort of thing with unusual openness, but Jimmy Carter and Bubba Clinton also both fought wars on the wrong side—Carter installing the Muzzies in Iran, Clinton helping the Muslims in former Yugoslavia against the Bosnians.

As for the CIA, it is stuffed with left-wing Ivy Leaguers, and has been for decades. They all think they are very clever, and think that anyone who thinks “America First” is probably pretty naive.

There’s a think line between penetrating enemy operations and helping them out, and the CIA often crosses it, all the while patting itself on the back for being so exceedingly smart.

I still think that it should be possible to outfit them with a GPS so that they won’t work outside of a preprogrammed area. THAT would be a nifty weapon.

Don’t think of it in terms of addition, but subtraction.

Hopefully, a lot of better quality Russian weapons and aircraft will be used up or destroyed, and Assad’s soldiers, Hezbollah and Iranian al-Quds, and al-Qaeda will get splattered. The more the merrier.

The more they kill each other, the better our popcorn tastes.

If they really cripple each other, maybe the Kurdish part of Syria will take a powder and join Iraqi Kurdistan.

That strategery turned out real well when we handed Stingers over to the Islamist Mujaheddeen in Afghanistan back in the 1980’s.

They still had some working left-overs that they used against US aircraft when we went into Afghanistan after 9/11.

All fine and good. However, we have no business taking any sides in this civil war. Nothing good can come of it.

Frankly, I disagree. It appears that the unrest in Syria is the work of various intelligence agencies. I'd like to believe we still have that ability, but currently the likely choices are 1) Turkey 2)Saudi Arabia 3)Israel. The reasoning is quite simple and straightforward, that being we, and our allies are finally getting serious about taking on Iran. The last thing we want, is for Hezballah to be raining missiles down on Israel, and getting re-supplied from Syria. The Israeli's will spend their time in this coming war, mopping up Hezballah, and cleaning out all the fortified bunker systems they have implemented throughout southern Lebanon. Once Syria is peeled away from Iran (hopefully at great financial and military cost to Iran), Iran will be more receptive to negotiation. Unfortunately, it looks like the game plan is a little behind and the Iranians do look like they're going to cross the goal line before this plan comes to completion, but even if Syria isn't taken out by the time we get around to Iran, they will be pretty busy putting out fires around their country, too busy to worry about Israel.
