    -The weapons will only be provided to the Supreme Military Council, which excludes Islamic Extremist groups.

    A few beheadings will change that.

    I guess when it comes to the Liberal Radio Talk Shows the Syrian people aren't worth as much as the people of Iraq ...

    Syria and U.S. Imperialism

    "When U.S. imperialism engages in an attack on any government or movement, it is essential that the workers' and progressive political movements for change gather as much information as is available and take a stand.

    It is cowardly to be neutral and rank betrayal to stand on the same side as the imperialist octopus, which seeks to dominate the world."

    Re: US will supply military weapons to the Syrian rebels.

    There are reports that the Syria No Fly Zone and bombings will start this month. There is a reason the Pentagon pushed back at the Syria No Fly Zone story because the decision has been made.

    Pentagon pushes back against Syria no-fly zone report - The Hill's DEFCON Hill

    The Preznit Obomber, serial fascist and Nazi butt pipe, will set in motion a chain of events in Syria which he will not be able to undo. First off, the No Fly Zone has been completed, and then the bombings will rain down from U.S. fighter planes which Israel already has done. Next, the thousands of American troops will be necessary to battle a huge ground war taking years, with horrific casualties. Then, when the battle becomes a stalemate, the U.S. will have to have new American army recruits to keep the quagmire going. Iran will destablize the war will broaden into mass carnage, sanctions, disease, starvation and conflagration. World opinion will solidify against Obomber the fascist and the U.S. Nazi aggressors disregard for human life on a mass scale in Syria as was the case in Iraq.
    The U.S. will lose after having exhausted options and available U.S. troops stationed nearby.

    Here is a video of what the Obama secretly funded, trained terrorists in Syria are really doing the last two years hidden from the American people but once you get past the COINTELPRO MEDIA censors like the NYT, CNN, NBC, PBS, NPR, etc.

    WARNING GRAPHIC

    Just announced. The US has confirmed it has undeniable proof that Assad in fact used chemical weapons against his own people and, as a result, the US will begin supplying lethal military aid to the rebels for the first time since the war began 2 years ago.

    About damn time.

    NOOOO!!!
    Why the **** is it our business to get involved in a civil war!?
    I also suspect that the gov could just be totally making this **** up to get invovled.
    Also i suspect that we have already been arming them.
    Why the hell should we get on a side that allies itself with Al-Qaeda groups?
    This is so stupid.

    Heya JB I hope you are aware that the Rebels are responsible for minimum of 1/3 of the 93K killed in Syria.

    Re: US will supply military weapons to the Syrian rebels.

    Of course we should supply the rebels weapons!! When has supplying weapons to foreign rebels ever resulted in unintended consequences down the road?
