Saturday morning ping! Have a great Happy Father’s Day weekend, y’all!
That’s just about what I was thinking after the nightly news - only I could never have said it the way you do. Brilliant.
This is not going to end well. Those weapons will be used on Israelis, Christians and our Embassy personnel.
If only the pea-brained American sheeptards could ever awaken from their coma....
Charles Krauthammer(sp) said it best. Zero came upon a wreck and asked what happened? He doesn’t have a C-L-U-E. . .
sends US arms to a massive terrorist network dominated by al Qaeda or similar ideological islamists, who consider destroying the West priority #2 after they murder or subjugate enough muslims to set up their glorious caliphate and destroy Israel
exposes Turkey and Jordan to increasing destabilization
and all managed by John "Kerry of Arabia" and the idiots at State Department who think muslims who tweet must be democratic revolutionaries
oh and bypasses Congress again in getting advise and consent for inserting American men and American interests into another war designed by obama cronies at CIA
but hey, what could possibly go wrong
Chris Stevens’ mission continues!
Wasn’t THIS what our dead AMb. Stevens was doing in Benghazi??
The great advantage we have is that moslems spent the past 1,400 years totally botching everything they try.
This endeavor shall be no exception.
Syria is Russia’s client state. Russia will kick the CIA from here to Benghazi you can count on the full military might of
Putin to be deployed in Defence of Assad.
This will not end well. The CIA operatives and their al Queda mercenaries will be swiftly exterminated.
Shouldn’t the headline be, “CIA admits they have been smuggling arms...”?
Wait!, do Tammy Fae Boehner and the rest of Congress not have decisions to make???
Building bases over the past year, eh, coupled with what was going on in Benghazi? Kinda makes the “chemical attack” excuse extremely thin since they’ve been planning this since spring 2012.
Big deal. The CIA is often on the wrong side. Does this mean we can start arresting government officials for giving aid to terrorist organizations?
Now it’s official: the CIA is reopening its gunrunning operation that was shutdown temporarily by the raid at Benghazi on 9/11/2012. Attrition on the AQ fighters against Assad is going badly for Dear Leader, so he had to manufacture an excuse to rearm them. This is just Obama smoke and mirrors to cover his aggression in Syria to please his Saudi masters and advance the Islamic caliphate.
Helping ANY bearded savage is stupid. Especially when they hate us.
The commander in chief is helping those who hate us.
One possible justification for providing arms to the "rebels" would be to perpetuate the conflict so that the attrition is extended as long as possible, eating up men and resources from Hizbullah and the Iranian allies as much as if not more than from the Assad run military. The problem is that would be a delicate game to play with possible consequences including a face off between Russia and Turkey (i.e. NATO), a desperate Assad shaking up the board by striking out at Israel with unconventional weapons, or a Sunni victory and the emplacement of a far more maniacal and dangerous opponent on Israel's northern frontier.
I would be surprised if the Jordanians, at least and in spite of their natural inclination to support the Sunni side in this Islamic civil war, would not see a victory by the Muslim Brotherhood (Al Qaeda by any other name) as more problematic to have on their border than a weakened Assad. If that's the case, what kind of environment will our Marines find themselves in six months from now on the Jordanian side of the border? Unwelcome and with enemies on all sides?
This is the sort of three dimensional Middle East chess match we Americans are historically pretty bad at and it sounds to me like Obama (and others like McCain) is pushing us into a gun powder shed using a lit match to find our way.
