Skip to comments.Sen. Rubio: Time to provide ammunition to Syrian opposition
Posted on 03/01/2013 2:42:58 PM PST by ColdOne
The Obama administration should send ammunition to the Syrian rebels, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Wednesday.
The comments from a potential Republican front-runner in 2016 suggest both parties are coalescing around a more forceful U.S. role in the two-year-old civil war.

I’m against the next war.
Where ever it is.
If you have ammunition, put it on the streets of the US so we can prepare for our war!
The future of Syria is not worth the expenditure of one American life.
WHAT ABOUT US?????????..................
NO! NO! NO! Stay out of this! No more American lives lost to create Sharia nations. And no more American treasure!
He’s just another one of them.
And most ppl on here were fooled again. Thought he was the savior. Again.
How many more times.
Natural borne possible Presidential candidates
are unlikely to support weaponizing al Qaeda.
Let’s leave this one to the private sector. If Rubio wants to raise private funds to send to the Syrian rebels, i won’t get in his way. Our government doesn’t have any money for this kind of thing anymore.
If it’s to the non-jihadi and secular Free Syrian Army, then yes. We should have done this in 2011 to prevent the jihadis from moving in and filling the vacuum left by the FSA’s inability to quickly overthrow Assad. Now the jihadis are racking up military successes and gaining credibility among the Syrian populace, which is going to turn Syrian into a prime battleground between moderates and radical Al Qaeda-linked groups once Assad’s gone. Had we armed the FSA early on so they could quickly prevail, we could have prevented the jihadis from getting a foothold there. Obama’s inaction has greatly complicated the situation there, not to mention cost 10s of thousands of lives. Not sure why Obama felt it was so important to overthrow Gaddafi and but then to do nothing to rid the Middle East of Iran’s stooge Assad, and the presence on the Mediterranean he gives the Mullahs.
Give us some ammo! Rubio, you jerk!
I guess the elites want the Syrian Civil War to end and they must have found Rubio's price.
I knew with this Immigration talk back a few years ago we couldn't trust him.
He wants to be a Republicans, it's as simple as that.
Nope Rubio, the only danger we have now is within, these folks can get by on their own, just as we will have to do.
Cheap shot. Rubio was born in the US. And the Free Syrian Army is not radical nor linked with Al Qaeda. Other groups fighting Assad there are, precisely because we did nothing to end the war quickly there to prevent the jihadis from getting a beach head on the ground in Syria.
So its not just immigration where he seems squishy, he gets all worked up for jihadi’s too?
The Hispanic Obama.
No, it!s time to stop stealing money from the American people for other countries.
Yes, let’s go ahead and arm some more terrorists, because it worked so well in Libya.
Funny...we'll send them bullets but take away ours?? What's wrong with this picture??
