Skip to comments.U.S. Will ‘Shortly’ Be Arming Syrian Rebels: Key Senator
Posted on 05/07/2013 7:49:53 AM PDT by lbryce
The United States will "shortly" begin arming Syrian rebels, looking to boost moderate factions over al Qaida-affiliated extremists whose rise would be a national security "nightmare," the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told CBS News on Tuesday.

lbryce~:” The rebels are not freedom-lovers of any kind.”
The Moose-limb brotherhood = Sharia
Sharia = SUBMISSION
How can SUBMISSION = FREEDOM ?
Only in Reid’s and Zippy’s mind
if they are talking about arming the rebels ,it is already happening ,also Obama needs a distraction
Yeah I think its been going on. Assad would have crushed them long ago if we weren’t.
Giving US ordnance to Al Qaeda Sunnis to fight the Shiites? Looks like Barry Obama is making his personal religious war that of the USA?
And then these same weapons will be turned on Israel, other US allies, and our own troops.
Looks like the Muslim Brotherhood is now in control of US foreign policy.
Friends for benefits, enemies when the pipeline is shut off and they will use your own weapons against you later. So simple an 8-year old understands it yet full-grown men who’s morality has been so rationalized they can’t see the truth anymore. When we are attacked on our soil with our own weapons we’ll know who armed them.
I THOUGHT WE WERE IN SEQUESTER!
I THOUGHT GUNS IN THE HANDS OF CITIZENS WAS A DANGER! Obama trusts Islamic militants with guns more than he does American citizens.
Does any intelligent person actually believe that the United States is giving them food, giving them medical aid, giving them military training in Jordan but not supplying them weapons? There were stories well over a year ago about shipment of modern western arms with no serial numbers pouring into Syria.
Is there any doubt that for the next 20 years we will find any arms we give them being used against Americans throughout the world? This is lunacy.
It is the ultimate irony that our government sees nothing wrong with sending heavy weapons to al Qaeda, while simultaneously disarming American citizens.
Distraction from Benghazi. The Administration will announce the new policy tomorrow.
Meanwhile, in our hapless House doing nothing has become an art form.
jsanders2001~:” When we are attacked on our soil with our own weapons well know who armed them “
We are verbally being attacked now for “Fast and Furious” by our own ‘Corrupter-in-Chief’ speaking in Mexico.
Don’t forget , it was his choice , Holder, whose “Just-Us” Department supplied those weapons to the drug cartels.
Both Zippy and Holder are responsible for those weapons when there was no attempt to follow them once they went over the border.
Holder already said he want to ‘brainwash’ the U.S. populace against firearms.
First it was physical supply of weapons with no trace
Arm the drug cartel/rebels/ criminals
Create chaos - so the criminal element/rebels can sieze power and control
“Fast and Furious “ was the training ground for Benghazi
“Fast and Furious “ would remain unknown EXCEPT for ‘Whistle-blowers’ who have moral fortitude, and couldn’t accept the illegal actions of our government.
The weapons of Benghazi will , eventually , bite us in the a** !!
Remember that as Grandma is being groped at the airport and all your phone calls, emails, financial records, and every movement is being surveilled and recorded by TSA/DHS/NSA/FBI/CIA.
The stupidity of those running our country is only surpassed by their criminality. This is evidence of both.
Yet another astounding foreign policy failure begins to take shape. No one advocating invention (and taking sides IS intervention) in Syria has presented a compelling reason why it’s in America’s interests to step into that morass on the side of al-Qaida - aligned jihadis who have already given death threats to Syrian Christians.
Not one dollar of American treasure and not one drop of American blood for muslims... ever again.
Syria is not our conflict. Stay out, America... you’ll just f**k up the works anyway.
Last I heard, Boehner is in the corner of his office hiding, blubbering and blowing snotbubbles. So at least he's "doing something."
WAG THE DOG!!
So now we are into overthrowing governments?
Where is my AK-47 and RPG?
If Assad would come out as Gay, Obama would be arming him.
John McCain, like an idiot, wants US boots on the ground.
What we should be doing is GIVING bunker buster bombs and ordnance to the Israelis in HUGE quantities. Instead we are arming the enemy. The Israelis could destroy Assad over night.
We need a prime directive like they have on Star Trek.. We don’t need to get involved in someone else’s internal affairs, especially a civil war.
As much as I despise Assad, the best we could hope for would be for him to hold power. It’s too bad he hurt Obama’s feelings, and now the region and the world will suffer with whatever worse government replaces him. I’m still hoping that Russia will save Assad and us - they are far less anti-American than Obama and his people are.
So that is why he and Chambliss were invited to play golf with The Punk.
0bama wanted to sweet talk them into supporting his attempt to arm more of his Muslim Brotherhood allies in yet another attempt to depose a semi-secular leader so that the shariaist - jihadis can take over another nation.
This is stupid. Arming one bunch of subhuman savages so they can fight other subhuman savages is stupid. When they finish trying kill each other, the arms are used against civilized countries.
Israel will shortly be destroying Damascus.
The United States will “shortly” admit to arming the “rebels”. They won’t admit that they are arming Al Qaeda but the results will speak for themselves.
In the middle east there aren’t any really good solutions. The current project will take down an Iranian ally and replace it with another Muslim Brotherhood government.
The only peace in the middle east continues to be the area occupied and defended by Israel.
It sure looks that way. The following interview with Adm. Lyons sheds more light on 0bama's Mid-East Fast and Furious program.
Actually, We need to eliminate Syria. Syria is the principle Iranian surrogate. To eliminate that coalition is a great boon to the world. Iran is responsible for most of the current problems.
It seems to me that although the rebels have made great strides they are not able to complete the mission. The Turks and the gulf Arabs have provided the aid to date. Israel is a silent part of the rebel
coalition till this week. They have acted as others can not, in self defense.
The end game is in process and it is ok for us to provide something from the off shore stock piles.
In a perfect world, we’d eliminate Syria, Iran and a few other rogue nations as well, but that’s not going to happen. The al-Qaida rebels are far worse than Assad. Our realistic options are few, and helping al-Qaida come to power next door to Israel isn’t the answer.
Since the article stated, "...the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee told CBS News on Tuesday." that would have to be Corker.
UN accuses Syrian rebels of carrying out sarin gas attacks which had been blamed on Assads troops
Carla Del Ponte said UN Commission investigating war crimes in Syria has strong, concrete suspicions that rebels used chemical weapons
Her remarks contradict statements by the U.S. and UK which said intelligence indicated Syrian soldiers used the weapons
An ipso facto state of war exists now, or soon enough, between us and Syria. We might as well declare war on Assadism.
Thats an interesting twist. It seems that the sarin gas cocktail mix is available to everyone. The Israelis are very nervous.Can’t blame them. Imagine missiles loaded with sarin gas exploding in the outskirts of Tel Aviv?
It would seem passingly strange that Assad would be stupid enough to order the deployment of sarin gas, but maybe the so called rebels did indeed get their hands on a storage facility of Saddam Husseins sarin gas cocktail mix( the ingrediants have to be mixed and after mixing the liquid form of sarin is unstable and deteriorates over time, has to be used within 60 days.)
IMHO the sarin cocktail mix originated in Iraq with the Saddam Hussein regime, and was trucked out of Iraq, just prior to the coalitions invasion of Iraq, by the Russians and French who had been trading oil for various WMDs.Now the gas ingrediants are on Israel’s doorstep and Obama does not seem to interested in stopping their deployment, although apparently the US did give the Israelis satellite intel to interdict the sarin gas supply route and missiles going to Hezbollah in Lebanaon.Its only a matter of time before sarin gas is deployed against Israel, and when that happens, the Israelis will strike Iran.Obama is not supplying Israel with the necessary bunker buster bombs, as far as we know.This should be really HUGE news at this point.
Your theory of the Sunnis and Shiites killing each other off is proving to be accurate. The only thing that would unite them is war against Israel.Obama has almost achieved his personal goal of setting the scene for the ultimate destruction of Israel, by attack from the North, East and South, as well as the West( Gaza), using Sarin gas and other WMDs.Libyas arsenal has also been distributed to the enemies of Israel.
Things are about to get very hot in the ME.
Islam has within it, sown through the psychotic condition of its founder, the seeds of its own destruction. I have read there are something like 76 sects, and each one believes the other is not fit to live. The only way to win is to let them do what they are programmed to do. Annihilate each other.
