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.

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.”

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.

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....

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.
