Let’s hope that Obama has enough sense not to start a war with Russia on behalf of his Muslim terrorist buddies.

Sense and progressive are mutually exclusive. Obama and Hillary want a world war because they want to have the power that their hero, FDR wielded over the American people. They do not realize that in this age there are no winners in a world war. Here is the latest news from the World War III front. An ongoing battle that may determine how this all escalates to World War.

Concern that Assad may have passed some chemical weapons to Hizballah

The battle around Al Safira, site of Syria’s biggest chemical weapons store and Scud D missiles fitted with chemical warheads, is fierce and fluid: the base changes hands every few hours in heavy fighting between Syria army and rebel forces.

Saturday, the base’s capture by the rebels triggered a warning from the Assad regime against throwing chemical weapons into the battle. Sunday, Al Safira was recaptured, but the rebels are sweeping through the surrounding villages and closing in on three sides. For now, Syrian forces control the road connecting Al Safira to Aleppo, but the rebels have seized parts of Sheikh Suleiman, the biggest air base near that city, and are getting close to that highway. Its fall would snap shut the rebel siege on Al Safira.

Control of Al Safira would place the big chemical weapons stores in the hands of rebel forces in that sector, many of whom belong to Jabhat al-Nusra, the roof organization of the al Qaeda elements fighting in Syria against the Assad regime.

Could this be a 21st century version of the 20th century Spanish Civil war? That war had plenty of republicans involved, as well as statists...
