Obama sends advanced weapons to jihad opposition in Syria
Pamela Geller ^ | 4/19/14 | Pamela Geller

Posted on 04/20/2014 12:00:19 PM PDT by Nachum

Let’s consider for a moment the consequences of giving seventh-century savages who are hellbent on destroying 21st civilization advanced 21st century weaponry.

Ponder that, if you will.

How many tens of thousands of jihad attacks must we suffer to face reality? How many millions of non-Muslims and secular Muslims have to die in order for us to face the truth?

Advanced weapons to these devout Muslims waging jihad — nuts, I tell ya.

The only people we should be arming are the religious minorities in Syria. The Kurds have established an independent state. Arm them. Protect them.

What is Obama’s objective in arming al Qaeda/ Muslim Brotherhood opposition in Syria?

“US sends small number of advanced weapons to Syrian rebel,” Wall Street Journal, April 19, 2014

The U.S. and Saudi Arabia have supplied Syrian rebel groups with a small number of advanced American antitank missiles for the first time in a pilot program that could lead to larger flows of sophisticated weaponry, people briefed on the effort said.

The new willingness to arm these rebels comes after the failure of U.S.-backed peace talks in January and recent regime gains on the battlefield. It also follows a reorganization of Western-backed fighters aimed at creating a more effective military force and increasing protection for Christian and other religious minorities—something of particular importance to Washington.

I'm surprised there isn't some odd-allies cooperation with Israel helping Syria get those weapons out of the hands of terrorists. It's hard to imagine that there are any rebels in Syria anymore who don't align with AlQaida.

Why is there not one sane voice in DC about this outrage?

No sarcasm please.

You should know by now that it is all done intentionally.

I vaguely remember a time when the congress (and the MSM) were very much concerned about the executive branch making unauthorized arms transfers to rebels.

Complete bull. Assad protects Christians in Syria and has been making progress in restoring order and returning Christian towns and holy sites to government controls. The US backed Islamist rebels have been slaughtering Christians in most horrific ways. This decision shows the bloodymindedness of Obama and will get more Christians killed.

Obama told us that he would side with violent Islamic extremists, even before he was voted into office.

IF he was voted into office.

So.... he has told the truth once in his life.

Do I really need to point out that this is exactly why the usurper in the white hut is sending weapons to the rebels?

No you don't. Obama is a Muslim or Muslim enabler who has been doing all that he can to establish the Greater Caliphate by destabilizing or overthrowing governments which stood in the way of the Islamists. He has Muslim Brotherhood advisors in the government and is anti-Christian in his thought and deed.

This arming of the islamofacists in Syria has been going on since before Benghazi. I am surprised they have not used one of our shoulder fired surface-to-air rocket launchers to take out an Israeli passenger jet.

For starters, for those who like to surf for information:

Soros meatpuppet Barry Obongo and the sodomite EU arm and support Christian slaughtering Al Qaeda jihadis to overthrow the legitimate government of Syria. It makes you wonder why they are supporting the overthrow of the legitimate government of Ukraine and who they are supporting in that effort.

The Iran-Contra affair was the effort to oust President Regan for selling arms to Iran and using the money to fund the anti-communist rebels, or Contras, in Nicaragua.

Yes, I followed it pretty closely back then.

I don't remember congress debating or voting on this arms deal. Maybe they did & I missed it.

But here we are twenty five years later and the media has completely lost interest in the US sending arms to rebels or, in this case, probable enemies.

“This will turn out well. :(”

Opening the door for Putin to do the same. And you can bet that he will.

Of course, “advisors” will be needed to train AQ on how to use them. But, Obama’s Saudi master will be slightly pleased.

Remember, the US involvement in overthrowing Ukraine, likely comes from Putin stopping the US attack on Syria, which seriously displeased the Saudi’s.

Guess we can thank our lucky stars obama and hillary have been defeated in Egypt after they ushered the moslem brotherhood into power. There would have to be a do-over in Egypt for obama / hillary to place the moslem brotherhood back in charge.

Brings to mind the chemical weapons in Syria and their removal. I’ll have to do some research to see how that process is progressing and where the chemical weapons are being relocated to if are being removed.

1. Both sides in that war are American haters and will do anything to destroy the US and any American - that is a given.

2. Some of those weapons will be transferred to another place in the world where they can accomplish #1.

3. Whoever caused that sale to happen has aided an enemy and is a traitor - whether Obama, an Obama appointee at DOD or in the Senate.

It all balances out. I heard that he is taking away the attack helicopters from the National Guards here in the States. I hope that’s a rumor but anymore, I doubt it.

Oh yeah, it’s Eurasia. We’ve always been at war with Eurasia.
