Sources claim the Congress will withhold aid to the Syrian rebels

July 8, 2013

 After it was learned that somebody in Syria used chemical weapons–we still have not determined beyond a shadow of a doubt whether it was Bashar al-Assad who used the weapons against the rebels or if it was the rebels who used the weapons against Bashar al-Assad, but that does not seem to matter to the Obama regime–the Obama regime announced its intentions to supply the rebels with weapons to help in the fight against the Syrian president.

  Sources are now reporting that the Congress will hold up the aid to the Syrian rebels amidst worries that the weapons will fall into the hands of Islamists. With reports that the Syrian rebels are backed by al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood I would argue that this is the intent of the Obama regime so the worries are justified and this policy must be stopped at all costs!

    It seems as if the Congress has learned from Barack Obama’s mistake–if it was a mistake–in Egypt and is not willing to let it happen a second time. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton supported the ouster of Hosni Mubarak even though there were reports of al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood ties to the rebels in Egypt who looked to overthrow the now disposed leader, and that led to the Obama supported election of the Muslim Brotherhood supporting Mohamed Morsi.

  Once Morsi predictably tried to implement Sharia law the people and the military turned against him and he was forcibly removed from office–a rebuke of Barack Obama’s foreign policy in the Middle East. Egypt is now embroiled in a bloody civil war with no end in sight, and now all of a sudden Barack Obama decides to remain neutral now that his policy has led Egypt to burn.

  The situation in Syria is eerily reminiscent of the situation in Egypt and yet Barack Obama seems poised to make the same mistake again. Hopefully this report is true and the Congress will stand up to Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy and the notion that somehow the Arab Spring was a good thing.

    I think you’re right and there’s no doubt in my mind Obama intends the weapons to fall into the hands of Islamists. I’m convinced that Chris Stevens was involved in shipping weapons to them when he was killed in Libya. Obama seems to be blatantly supporting and supplying, directly and via proxy, the very people who would use those weapons against us. It follows then that Obama is siding with and supplying the enemies of the United States and to my mind, that makes him our enemy as well. And for the moment, he seems to be getting away with it. Unbelievable.

      I agree with you, and I also think Stevens was either involved in the trafficking or uncovered it–either way he seems to have been a sacrifice when things went bad.

    In the beginning I supported aid to the Syrian rebels, but slowly as their true colors were revealed I changed my opinion. It appears as though the rebels are controlled by radical islamist and terrorist. So if push came to shove, I would have to come down on the side of the Assad governement. The old saying, “the devil you know………” applies!

      Exactly Ron, Assad is not a nice guy and neither was Mubarek but at this point I do not see any upside to us continuing to stick our noses in over there.

    Instead of sending weapons to Egypt why don’t we support the Kurd and Christian communties in eastern Syria, Food, medicine and other humanitarian aid should be sent this area. We could do more to boost the US image in this part of the world. Our political leaders do not understand where religionis a major political force.

      If we are going to spend money over there maybe that is a better way, but what are the chances the supplies actually go to where we intend them to go?

    I will believe it when I see it. Obama will not be frustrated. Period.
