Rand Paul is right. Arming these maniacs is a HUGE mistake. They’ve already murdered our ambassador and begun their offense agaimst Christians. And we want to give them weapons?
The US has to decide what it wants and not what it THINKS it wants. We've been down this road hundreds of times since 1945.
It's as if we never learn. Does the US want to topple Assad or not? If yes then it must be willing to live with another religiously rabid, anti-Western Syria armed to the teeth and sitting on Israel's Golan Heights, not a good recipe for peace and stability).
If we do not arm them then we must be prepared to accept a another secularly rabid, anti-Western Syria armed to the teeth and sitting on Israel's Golan Heights.
Either way we lose, China, Russia, Hizbollah, North Korea, win.
Who determines which insane group gets advanced US weaponry and what do we do when they use it on Israel, which they eventually will? Do we then ask Israel to, “show restraint” for the 456th time? Or, do we let the Israelis FINALLY destroy their enemies?

Amen! This is pure insanity.

(Funny thing happened on the way to the Constitution burning, Lefties rights were violated...)
Not to mention it’s believed that they have used chemical weapons, and they are posting video of their leader cutting open a dead person and eating his heart. These are the murderous thugs we want to support? The people who are sworn enemies of the US and of our freedom-guaranteeing Constitution?
This is absolutely nuts.
