Posted on 06/13/2013 3:37:49 PM PDT by edpc
In a sharp escalation of the U.S. role in Syria's bloody civil war, the White House announced late Thursday that it will provide military aid to rebels fighting to topple President Bashar al-Assad after confirming that his government used chemical weapons on the opposition.
Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes told reporters on a conference call that President Barack Obama had heard pleas from Syria's rebel Supreme Military Council (SMC) for more help. "Our aim is to be responsive," Rhodes said, underlining that the new assistance would have "direct military purposes."

Could Syria ignite World War 3? That’s the terrifying question as the hatred between two Muslim ideologies sucks in the world’s superpowers
That IS the goal.
While I really hope the Putins stay out, their air defense while good has been exposed several times by the guys from Whiteman AFB. While it was the IAF that took out the Syrian nuke program, the air defenses fell to a visitor from Missouri.
Well, Christians have been returning to their homes in places the Syrian military has chased al qaeda out. We can’t have that under obama.
Even if you oppose Assad, Obama naturally waited until the rebels are losing.
It’s echoing in my mind how many Freepers predicted this weeks or even months ago
That was no way to ping a list. PING!
“Obama administration is aiding jihadist in Egypt, Lybia, Ft Hood and now Syria”
May I add, he is aiding and abetting jihadist in every mosque in the USA ( In 2011 Dear Leader made it forbidden to use surveillance in mosques)
Military advisors are in Jordan and Israel now. No doubt they already slipped across, especially when they escorted John McCain into Syria, remember? Hell, were already there fighting.
Sickening, isn’t it?
“And where are the Russians and Iranians on this?
I dont expect them to sit still while Obama
rams it up their butt.”
You have such a way with words. I’m laughing! You need your own cable show. Talk about being straightforward, wow!
Well, Saddam Hussein’s WMDs are finally being used.
As a result, we’re going to help Al Qaeda, Saddam’s allies.
We should be staying out of it. Time will show the administration is making a mistake.
So NOW we can arm Al Qaeda.
He’s walking right into Assad’s trap....led there by none other than Billy Blythe.
Of course he has to get involved in a war to get attention away from all of the scandals. We will be fighting Russian troops this time, not second rate middle eastern troops. How can any good American soldier serve under this evil illegitimate dictator?
Now, would this be an unfunded war? Is congress in on this action?
This is spinning out of control, in every way possible.
When they say that innocents suffer under fools, I fully understand it now. How many more will die at the hands of the ‘rebels’ they want to arm/give aid to ALL in the interest of changing the topic.
