Skip to comments.Obama plots deployment of U.S. military advisers to Syria
Posted on 05/29/2014 6:23:06 PM PDT by Nachum
In a move that would expand Americas involvement in Syrias civil war, President Obama is close to authorizing the U.S. military to train moderate Syrian rebels to fight the regime of Bashar Assad and al Qaeda-linked groups, according to reports.
U.S. officials told the Wall Street Journal Tuesday that the new military program would supplement a small training effort led by the CIA, which Mr. Obama authorized a year ago.
At the White House Tuesday, Mr. Obama declined to answer a reporters question about the U.S. sending more advisers to train the rebels.
In a commencement address at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point on Wednesday, Mr. Obama is expected to give his backing for the new training effort by saying he intends to increase support to the armed Syrian opposition, including by providing them with training, the Journal reported.

He might as well hang signs around their necks: "I'm an American, please kill me."
WW3 is a possible way to place blame for a total economic collapse somewhere other than at the feet of democrats.
They will be happy to rule over the rubble.
That sounds so unbelievable, that people with such a low regard for human life exist..... but just look at their religious zeal when it comes to snuffing out the lives of the unborn. Never doubt that they are monsters who are capable of anything.
“He might as well hang signs around their necks: “I’m an American, please kill me.”
Send the women and the gaylords, surely they will prove themselves.
What is the freakin upside here? This appears to be one of the stupidest things we have ever done. This is insane. We’re gonna give MILITARY TRAINING to Al Qaeda linked fighters?
This is simply STUPID.
Well see, he just got done announcing he was going to dial back the meddling. He always does the opposite of what he announces.
To fight for our enemy? TREASON!!
Active Duty ping.
“moderate Syrian rebels” ??? there’s a new group there?
or (much more likely) is this just how they’re trying to sell further aid and weapons to the same “Syrian rebels” he’s been arming and supporting all along, you know, the IslamoNazis who burn down Christian churches and crucify Christian people....
birds of a feather.... elections have consequences....
the American public voted for this (twice)
pray for (Syria and) America.
Pray for America.
That’s how that other Democrat president, JFK, started Vietnam...
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
” .... train moderate Syrian rebels ... “
Yeah, sure. Moderate rebels? That’s another word for moderate terrorists.
If there were rebels in the USA fighting the government, do you believe our government would call them moderate?
Hussein Obama just feels like he needs to do more for his muslim brotherhood terrorist pals.
Syrian moderate rebels. Uh-huh. And those who supported Cliven Bundy are domestic terrorists.
“moderate Syrian rebels”
the ones that aren’t focused on killing westerners
Sounds like he is going to go public with what he has been doing from Bengazi,running Moderate jihadists with weapons from Bengazi through Turkey to depose Assad
You got that right Nana, and we will have a high KIA rate to boot. More wounded. VA hospitals are at capacity now, can’t take care of the Vets now correctly.
0 Wants the VA Scandals which just keep exploding in his face to go away, just start another war. Cause there is another VA Scandal just waiting to hit in a few months when TRICARE LIFE Veterans start to refill their last round of meds they were FORCED to get from Express Scripts.
How many are going to be RIPPED OFF? how many charged for meds they did not order? How many had their meds stolen out of the mailboxes, the USPS just stuffed their meds in, NO PHOTO ID SIGNED for. We have a lot of teens and kids, having access to that and pills don’t mix with out a disaster in the making. Then you have the meth maker, and the common drug thieve. Just waiting for you unprotected MEDS. It will force many to get a PO Box.
If you go base route it is a hours long wait, or a second trip. Refills come out of Pensacola, FL 5 days. ES 2 weeks for first fill or refills. DO NOT LET THEM CON YOU INTO AUTO PAY WITH EITHER BANK OR CREDIT CARD! YOU COULD LIVE TO REGRET IT.
The 4/14/2014 DOD MANDATE THAT ALL 65 YR OLD TRICARE LIFE RETIREES USE EXPRESS SCRIPTS FOR THEIR DAILY MEDS. or Base dispensary which is not Senior FRIENDLY. VERY CUMBERSOME process.
We had to scramble to get paper scripts, when we already had scripts refills at our family owned Pharmacy we’d used 30 yrs.
HOW EXPRESS SCRIPTS GOT THIS VERY LUCRATIVE DOD TRICARE CONTRACT IS A MONEY PALM GREASING DEAL IT HAS IT WRITTEN ALL OVER IT. THEY HAVE DEFRAUDED US THE USA TAX PAYERS OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS AS IT IS AND YOU GIVE THEM THE MILITARY TRICARE LIFE CONTRACT?
PLEASE SOME ONE WITH MORE SKILLS THAN I HAVE FIND THE MONEY TRAIL!

Rebels have already reported that they are being trained in Qatar. So, what’s up?
Ive always had my VA meds sent to my PO Box address..
The problem in the last couple of years with meds from the VA is that the local VA clinics don’t have pharmacies any more to fill emergency prescriptions..
If you have a life threatening situation or pain where you need the meds the doctor prescribed today too bad..
you have to wait 2, 3 weeks for the meds to come in the mail..
will Alexander vote to cut his pension from being a senator ???
Or you could fill the prescription yourself at a local pharmacy.
No more than he would his pensions for Gov of TN and University Dean! There has to be more pensions in their I just don’t know of them.
TX Sen croyn has 3 state pensions, and none of them he worked over 6 yrs.
cronyn 3 state pensions
Part of the DOD MANDATE EXPRESS SCRIPTS on Tricare Life, lets you get ER scripts, antibiotics if they are a 1-2 time fill, or a pain med for after surgery at a regular pharmacy. No waiting, you do have to pay the co-pay.
Millington Naval Base lost the doctors and hospital when it went from a training base to BUPERS. Now all we have is a dispensary, that is NOT senior friendly.
