Posted on 09/10/2013 1:22:47 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion

Russia is stepping up weapons supplies to Syria’s President Bashar Assad, to help him prevail in the civil war, as part of the arrangements under which the Assad regime has agreed in principle to have its chemical weapons stockpiles placed under international supervision, Israel television reported on Tuesday night.

lmao. By the time the UN weapons inspectors conclude 6 months from now that Assad is not complying with anything, the rebels will all be dead.

If we had stayed out of this Assad would have put the uprising down in a few months and the people could go back to living in relative peace.

Obamas next move will be his speech tonight. He won’t be talking to the American people, but will be talking to Iran.

We’ll not be doing anything against Iran. Our influence over there is gone. Putin, however, can rein them in, as he can put the bridle on the Saudis.

Nope. He’s right. Zero can’t bomb Assad now without looking like he’s supporting the MB rebels, since the chemical weapon ruse has been neutralized. The rebels can’t release more gas without revealing that they had it in the first place and it was never Syria that used it. Assad will crush the rebels and zeros buddies lose. Checkmate.

Putin is now the acting Police Chief of the New World Disorder, and he just issued Barry a warning ticket. Maybe Putin’s efforts will quell the head-loppers and organ-eaters, and slow down the persecution of Christians. So we got THAT goin’ for us.

“One side is as bad as the next.”

Not really. The Alawites don’t exterminate Christians:

Syria’s Christians stand by Assad
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503543_162-57372175-503543/syrias-christians-stand-by-assad/

Assad is probably the best that can be expected from a ruler in the middle east. He clearly treats Christians much better than the Saudis and the Pakistanis.

Here’s the contrast:

“Obama’s unintended consequence is the death of more of his Al Qaeda friends in Syria by Russian weapons. Hey Obama... dead is dead no matter how the people are killed - you’ve just approved Russia’s involvement. But I guess that is okay as long as it is not “chemical weapons” slaughtering everyone. What brilliance!”

I’ve got a hilarious vision of a bunch of Obama speechwriters sitting around watching the news as they furiously scribble out lines only to replace them with lines the wrote and scribbled out earlier.

This is another aspect of what “should be” a component of U.S. response to Putin’s insistance that we remove our threat of attack, as a part of Syria giving up Chem Weapons.

U.S. “should” tell Putin, et al,:
“We will NOT have the terms Syria’s surrender of Chemical Weapons dictated by their principle advanced weapons supplier!”

...if we only had a LEADER!

Last week one of the Syrian Christian anti war protesters in Detroit said that things weren't perfect under Assad but at least his mother didn't have to fear leaving her house.

LOL...that narrows it down!

Seriously though, there are so many battles going on, each of them important in their own way as they all pose a detrimental outcome, it really is very difficult to keep up.

I'd bet to some degree it is all by design too.

I hope this story is true. I have been praying daily for the Christians in Syria to be protected from Obama's evil soul mates - Al Qaeda.

Obama's main concern is unleashing Al Qaeda so they can slaughter all the Christians. It brings him great joy.

"Which Muslim is Obama going to stand with?"

His father's sect, Sunni, whose Prince paid for his education, who fund many Republican Legislators, thanks to funds directed by Grover Norquist, whose wife is Sunni, and who sponsored Suhail Khan for senior board of American Conservative Union, Suhail, whose father founded the Islamic Society of North America, and who swore to aggressively follow his father's promise to pursue jihad until all unbelievers are dead or converted, and to promote the Caliphate. Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan, a Wahhabi Convert - Sunni, Muslim Brotherhood - has been by Barack’s side since the mid 2000’s, and with the contract to maintain State Department personnel data, employed the technician who destroyed Obama’s paper records, (obviously, before he was murdered), and while rejected by the Senate for Director of National Intelligence (they all knew he was recruited by the Saudi’s while he was Saudi Chief of Station for the CIA), but as Obama consolidated his power and appointed more quislings to executive management, approved of his becoming CIA Director.

Whether Obama is a Muslim or not, only he knows, but there is no doubt that he has turned the USA into the enforcer for “The Quran is our Law, Jihad is our way”. This explains why Mubarak, Gadhafi, Assad, and probably Saddam, had to go. They are all nationalists, Alawite, Baathist, and not willing to cede control to the Caliphate - not One World Government for 57 States. If the Saudi’s control the revived Ottoman Empire, the Caliphate, which Erdogan wants based in “Constantinople”, Iran will be restrained. The Saudi’s have money but no effective military. They are buying protection.

For Israel it is complicated by the weekly threats of annihilation from Iran. Iran has launched satellites. There is no question but that they can reach both Israel and Saudi Arabia today, but with what? It is extremely unlikely that Iran doesn't have nuclear devices. North Korea and Pakistan, not to mention India, have had them for decades. Israel could incinerate most all of the Saudi states, even while absorbing bombing, because they have many submarines. The Saudi’s know Israel, which is a large trading partner of the Saudi’s, has no interest or inclination toward attacking Arabian states. Dubai is Israel's largest shipping terminus and Dubai Ports, which tried to acquire control of the Port of Long Beach, its partner.

This is about survival of the Saudis, resurgence of the “57 States” of the OIC, the Organization for Islamic Conference, (or Islamic Cooperation) (recall the “57 States” from early in Obama’s “Campaign”, which may have been entirely staged, with McCain playing his role. Obama let Persians die when they asked for help after an obviously "fixed" election. (Always remember Stalin's wise observation, "only who counts the votes matters.") Iran, whose Mullahs the U.S. installed in power with Jimmy Carter's help. Obama works for the Muslim Brotherhood, as does Mohammad al-Baradei, Huma Abedin, Hillary's former Chief of Staff, John Brennan, and dozens of Muslim Brotherhood members overseeing our Department of Homeland Security, Military, and probably many many who work quietly behind the scenes executing their oath to replace our Constitution with Sharia. That is why our Military, Intelligence, and DHS have forbidden such words as Islamic Terrorism, Jihad, Muslim Extremist,... from their training and documents. That is why Major Hassan, who told the courts exactly why he killed Ft. Hood soldiers, and even cited the Suras the applicable suras in the Quran, by number, was convicted of "Workplace Violence." Our government is already observing Muslim "Blasphemy Laws", at the request of Muslim Brotherhood NGO's, many "unindicted co-conspirators in the Holyland Foundation Trial", as well as from the OIC, who sent the letter to John Brennan to execute. He did, of course, and those words cannot be used in organization controlled by our Muslim Brotherhood executive.

Stalin initiated influence operations in both Sunni and Shia nations many decades ago. Nasser and Sadat were Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood was a senior adviser to Hitler, in particular, the Egyptian-born Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Arafat's Great Uncle, whose photographs with Himmler and Goebbels are well known. It appears that the KGB were much more sophisticated than CIA, to the point that the CIA has a Muslim Brotherhood director. Our government is so infiltrated, with NSA tracking anyone it likes, that recovery of our Republic may only be possible from the bottom up - Tea Parties. But today, the U.S. is Sunni Muslim Brotherhood and Russia, which has experienced Beslan, apparently sees Iran and its client Syria, Iran which, until Jimmy Carter, had eliminated Islamic Fundamentalism, as a more promising ally.

Interesting observation.

I suppose they may feel safe in Syria under Assad and safe in Detroit under Democrats.

Now both are under threat of being overturned.

What to do ?

Who will butter my bread ?

Wait, hold on, I think it was Christian protesters of Syrian descent that happened to live in Detroit.

Out of the fire and back into the frying pan.

Simmer, stir and let it set until it hardens.

In fact, there’s a number of Putin YouTubes publicly taking on the commie NWO freaks like Hillary, Kerry, Soros and obuma.

We need to remember, too, that Hillary and Soros tried to take down the Russian economy and steal Russia’s treasure. Putin stopped that and arrested a bunch of Soros stooges. There’s still an open warrant in Russia for the arrest of the Nazi Soros.
