Skip to comments.US troops on Syria border as Obama arms rebels

Three hundred US Marines have been deployed to northern Jordan to pave the way for the West to arm Syrian rebels.
A Patriot anti-aircraft missile system, designed to protect Jordanian territory from attack by Assad missiles, has also been moved into the area.
There was a “former” Taliban commander that was written up a year or two ago. He was using USA SAT phones to call in NATO strikes to support the “freedom” fighters in Libya. While this commander was later killed in action IIRC, many others have taken his place to continue the fight elsewhere - Syria today, ??? tomorrow.
Someone mentioned a while back that Assad’s Syria was one of the few places in the Middle East that treated Christians decently. I hadn’t been aware of that until then. That’s interesting isn’t it.
Yes it is.
That’s my fear.
With Russia arming Bashar al-Assad, Obama’s decision to arm the rebels means he’s re-enacting the Vietnam War in the Middle East.
Yet the modern Democratic party was born out of fierce opposition to the Vietnam War during the 1960s. Obama’s good friend Bill Ayres was a 60’s anti-war radical, as were John Kerry and the Clintons.
So now the same generation of Democrats who once, when they were of draft age, so strongly opposed President Johnson for getting us into Vietnam, now, as adults who control power, strongly support Barack Obama who’s getting us into Vietnam War II in Syria.
He will have thousands more Christian scalps for his trophy room.
Those in the military enabling this sonofabitch who hates the military personnel to set them up for slaughter in the ME is the most dangerous enemy of the Republic ever to walk the carpets in DC. I can see this bastard boy smiling when the death toll reaches a set number of those who will never come home to vote against his regime. Barry Soetoro is an evil sonofabitch and should be removed, today! ... Can a U.S. Marshal arrest a poseur pretending to be eligible to dish out orders to the Military?
They are too busy to be bothered by this stuff...
Bill Clinton simply CANNOT keep his mouth shut. He called O a wuss and within 36 hours we’re arming the damned ENEMY.
and as this news came out he put out a no name guy to tell the world while he meets with cross dressers and homosexuals in our house which is closed to us and paid by us
300 Marines. How many died in Lebanon under Reagan?
Yep, and few are following events in Jordan.
I agree. With the Ruskies Assad wins. So what?? He and his old man have been there for forty years. He wants no part of a tiff with the Israelis and the Ruskies would never support that. As for Hezbollah, if they want a go at the IDF that’s their funeral, and the Iranians will discover that Assad has little use for a bunch of 12th century mullahs, He and his family like the good life. There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASION to get involved here. Half the time I think it’s McCain’s doing because he feels as many Americans as possible should suffer like he did.
I hope Assad crushes the “rebels” just to make Hussein look like the fool he is....
So, U.S. troops on one side of Syria (and Israel), USSR troops possibly going to the Golan, lots of other crazies. Oh sorry, USSR broke up, the new USSR that Putin runs.
Pat, I’d like to solve ...

Congress needs to step in and require authorization.
Our troops are being used in a civil war horribly.
