Posted on 09/04/2013 2:50:13 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesdays hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.
With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes, Kerry said. They have. That offer is on the table.
Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

Not a chance! The chemical weapons ploy is just an easily trigger-able False Flag event.
This is about the gas and the Egyptian Morsi Trials!
The gas part is inevitable. There is gas there. It aint goin nowhere until they pump it. Russia doesn't want them to pump it! Bammy doesn't want them to pump it! Not lookin good folks.
Bammy can't afford for US citizens to find out about his family Terrorist Business, so Bammy has two reasons to.
What ya wanna bet we get a 7 year peace deal after the smoke of WWIII clears.
U.S. Servicemen are to be MERCENARIES?
Read “Tower Of Basel” by Adam LeBor. Great book and backs up your comments.
Glad I made you laugh! we need a good laugh with all this.
They are doing their utmost to cover up Benghazi-Gate likewise sealed ALL Barry’s records!!!
So, now 0bama’s military are mercenaries? I don’t think so. US soldiers should only fight to defend Americans and their allies. Not to intervene between two groups fighting over their own country. Is Syria an ally? Is Al Queda an ally?
I certainly feel for the poor people being hurt in Syria, especially the unarmed and powerless Christians.
Now recruiting for 21st century Janissaries.
You know, I don’t see why the Saudis don’t just start up their own foreign legion recruited from non-muslims. There is plenty of Middle Eastern precedent for this. These could be used to do the nasty jobs the Saudis wont do. Much like the way they run their economy in fact.
The Saudi natives are not reliable soldiers, and the princes rightfully don’t trust their own people. The soldiers they do have are largely Muslim mercenaries IIRC, and not too trustworthy either, at least for serious fighting in foreign parts.
They can set up their own “Wild Geese” that would be reasonably trustworthy, if they recruit Christian (or Hindu) mercenaries. No danger of these overthrowing the Saudi princes. I.e., the mercenaries could easily kill off the princes, but then they couldn’t hope to control the Muslim population, and who would pay them ? They can even base them somewhere other than Arabia. Somewhere in Africa maybe.
Who pays the piper calls the tune.
So why not come out and name it, John Francois?
the regime that needs to be gotten rid of is the saudis.
Well, why don’t they do it themselves then? Why send our sons and daughters?
So, we will let the Arabs pay US to go take down Assad so that a more Islamic government can be put in place?
And we are looking at accepting the offer?
The stupidity in Washington beyond comprehension.
“McCain, Graham, Boehner, Pelosi, Menendez, Obama .. Kerry”
1. “OK infidels—we’ve established what you are, now we’re just haggling over your stinking price ... “
2. Isn’t it considered bad form to disclose shocking, tawdry bargaining requests: here, the desire of the hook-nosed moon worshippers, Sunni variety, to use American troops as Swiss Guard cannon fodder? Oh yeah. It’s JFrikkinKerry.
3. “Immigration reform”: same/same.
Stick a fork in `em, they’re done! (Or we’re shootin’, and not in Damascus either.)
HI NSA. KMA!
Our troops and their families will pay a price too. A very big one.
Why we were not paid for kicking Saddam out of Kuwait, I do not know.
But would this make us mercenaries? Would payment be contingent upon some criteria for success? What if they decide not to pay? Why do not the Arab countries themselves take on the job? Would we ask for volunteers for this undertaking?
If the Arabs want to invade, let them. They have armies. Let them do the dying.
