A Patriot anti-aircraft missile system, designed to protect Jordanian territory from attack by Assad missiles, has also been moved into the area.

Wag the Dog and start WW3. Getting interesting, but maybe Obama believes there is no other way for him to permanently stay in power?

Okay, my conspiracy theory for the month is over!

No boots on the ground???

We're setting up Jordan for a hit. We already set up Turkey.

Syria has Russia for an ally. Why are we there at all?? Humanitarian?? They're all nuts!!

Obama’s War to aid his Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda pals.

The war that needs to be fought is in Washington. The war to toss this coup out and bring back real Government.

Finally, Barry gets his wish ... he's a wartime President. I wonder if he and Reggie will get matching uniforms.

Arming and backing these "rebels"* up is the worst idea The Mombasa MF has had yet. Just as his friend Odinga massacred Christians in Kenya in 2006, his new jihadi pals will continue the Christian-Killing tradition of Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Pakistan and every other flyblown Muslim haunt of the goat-and-boy-buggers.

A little advice: when you and Reggie take Michelle on the $100 million Safari, don't come back.

I thought he’d sent 1000 troops earlier this week. Are the 300 Marines to be added to the previous number? He truly wants WWIII with Russia and China against us and America destroyed.

It is very simple! The treasonous muslim bamer is building his caliphate with American forces and cash.

Most of America is still guessing whagt he is all about.

Many will still argue “Christian”, which is all smoke.

the saudis have wanted to get rid of Jordan’s ruling family nearly forever. Many muslims still believe that Houssein and now Abdullah were/are the rightful heirs to mecca and directly related to mohammad. Saddam Houssein believed that and that is why he had to go. They brutally murdered King Houssein’s father and stole their birthright.

Has this action been scrutinized and voted on by Congress?

I didn’t think so. I thought that weasel in the WH was just sending weapons.

Thanks warmonger Obama. You arre willing for more Americans to die to save your sorry criminal ass from the scandals. We are sick of seeing Americans slaughtered over Muslims. But I have to say Bush was a peacenik compared to you.

Hey GOP, why do you let troops get sent to Syria without a vote in Congress? Oh, thats right, you listen to McCain and Linda.

There’s support for the Hashemites in Saudi Arabia?

Who’d have guessed, I would have figured they’d be too moderate for the Wahabbis.

The Brits backed the wrong guys by letting Saud kick out the Hashemites. Imagine if Wahabbism was just some tiny sect of angry bedouins.

Just like 30,000+ troops in Korea. They're just bait. If those Marines are killed then we can destroy Assad with the American peoples approval.

I don't give a damn what some Freepers say, I want Bush back.

Syria hasn’t done anything against the United States. It is wrong for us to jump in here. All this is, is Obama helping his friends in Al Qaeda.

This is stupidity of the highest order.

Insanity. The Obastard is arming the Syrian rebels, who have sworn allegiance to Al-Queda, which has publicly proclaimed its sworn enemy is the United States.

NEVER forget who among us voted for this POS.

He is helping Qatar and its Saudi allies. They are seeking a nat gas pipeline through Syria to Europe which will reap billions for the Arabs and end Russia’s monopoly on nat gas to Europe. Assad is a Russia ally and against the pipeline, so the U.S and the arabs want to overthrow him no matter the cost to us and our sons and daughters. Putin though will destroy the Arabs and especially our al Qaeda allies in Syria before he lets that happen. Personally I am rooting for Putin. I have had enough with the EU, the Arabs and the Obama administration. Sad to see our troops made fodder.
