President Barack Obama may authorize the shipment of new air defense systems to rebel forces in Syrias ongoing civil war, a new Associated Press report states.
Citing an unnamed US official, the AP stated Obama is mulling over the idea of sending man-portable air-defense systems, also known as MANPADs, to Syrian opposition groups, a move that would mark a notable shift compared to the White Houses past statements.
As RT reported last month, the Obama administration has been interested in employing new ways to put pressure on Syrian President Bashar Assad and boost the opposing rebels, who have lost ground in the conflict over the last few months.
Officials then stated the US would send anti-tank rockets and humanitarian aid to the opposition, but noted MANPADs portable missile-launchers would not be part of the package, due to fears they could land in extremist hands and potentially be used to take down commercial airliners.
Yessir, Obama got the riot act from our Saudi masters. They want something now or.........................maybe like the last time.
Don’t we love arming terrorists?
To the liver eaters.
That filthy koranimal is no king, you filthy sympathizer.
Those of you who dwell in the constant darkness of ignorance can never be saved by the light of truth
And this will not make “news” and the left will never admit that hussein is building up al quaeda.
