Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/4/12

Posted on 04/10/2012 2:21:50 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

United States Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman called Tuesday for the U.S. to arm Syrian rebels. “The international community is failing the people of Syria,” said McCain. “The only way to reverse this is to help the opposition change the military balance of power on the ground.”

Lieberman called to arm President Bashar Assad’s political opponents...

I'd be all for arming his opponents so they can both knock themselves flat. But to call for it publicly is stupid.

Hey, congressional assh-les! Tend to the business of the United States of Titanica!

Screwing around with muslim nations going up in flames only to be resurrected by islamic terror groups is worse than merely wasting your time!

LIEberman and McLame are both illustrative of America’s problems!

Muzzies killing other Muzzies is a good thing.
Just don’t arm them so well that the balance tips... Keep it equal as long as possible...

President Bashar Assad is an evil thug who hates America, hates Jews, and hates everything good in the world. Sadly, his enemies have given no evidence that they are any better. Why would we get involved in yet another civil war - because the “pro-democracy” “Arab Spring” turned out so well in Egypt and in Libya?

Lieberman and McQueeg should both STFU and tend to problems at home. The U.S. should never have gotten invovled in the ME so-called Arab Spring in the first place. None of the muzzie groups are friendly toward the U.S., and any intervention we do will come back and bite us in the arse.

But it worked so well for Lawrence of Arabia. A movie said so. Oh, wait. He got buggered and went nuts at the end of the film, and really the whole “rebellion” he led was more fanciful than a Hollywood script. But sure. McCain and Lieberman are experts on the Middle-East. Listen to them. What could possibly go wrong./sarc

Don’t be so condescending with these senatecritters.

They know everything there is to know about hummus, kebab and tabbouleh.

They have had plenty of it, at the expense of the American taxpayer.

The only problem is its not just muslims killing muslims, but muslims killing Christians. And I am certainly no cheerleader for Assad, but he did open up his borders to allow Christians from Iraq to enter Syria and get away from the muslims in Iraq that were trying to murder them.
I have read elsewhere that Assad is fighting against rebel muslims and trying to protect the Christians. Whether that is true or not Ihavent a clue, but I do know I don’t trust the MSM.
