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

    I think Barack is lying through his teeth.

    Assad has turned it around - to some extent.

    And as long as he doesn't use chemical weapons, America will stay away.

    So, he decides to use chemical weapons on such a small scale as to be virtually useless strategically...but just enough so that America has the excuse it needs to start arming his enemies?

    I HIGHLY doubt it.


    Where is this evidence Barack - you incompetent, macroeconomic imbecilic, totally untrustworthy, Constitution ignoring, control freak?


    I bet he has nothing.

    He is just desperate to turn the media away from his pathetic presidency.

    Impeach this dickhead.


    Don't have enough evidence?

    Then tap his phone line and get it.

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

    The U.S. may have blown up the idea of a peace conference that it had co-sponsored. The anti-Assad movement had all but rejected talks and the possibility of receiving arms will increase its incentive to try to settle the conflict on the battlefield. The result will likely be a prolonged intensity of a sectarian conflict that has claimed some 93,000 lives. Furthermore, Russia is unlikely to be indifferent to the U.S. and possibly British and French arms supplies and will likely go beyond its existing arms commitments to the Assad regime. No matter the outcome, U.S. interests are not likely to materially benefit. There remains no concrete indication that a successor regime in Syria would be more hospitable to U.S. interests, more willing to seek peace with Israel, or that it would exclude the extreme elements that are an integral part of its coalition. Iran, also, is unlikely to shift course from its pursuit of regional hegemony. Hezbollah would lose an arms supply corridor, but one can't rule out a rapproachment aimed at Israel.

    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.
    Didn't Saddam Husein use them against his own people in Iraq on a much grander scale while 150 Syrians are claimed to have been killed? Obama has opened the coffin now. Why are we getting in to this quagmire over the deaths of 150 people? Is this a threat to our national security? Didn't we just get done screaming about the mistake in going to Iraq? Are we making great strides in Afghanistan? Is Obama willing to go toe to toe with the Russians? We just refuse to learn from the stalemate in Korea and the abomination of Viet Nam. This government laughs at sending our young troops to the slaughter while none of them have any hint of service in the military themselves barring McCain and a couple others.

The thought of our own weapons ending up in Al Qaeda hands to someday possibly be used against the American or even Israeli people is unacceptable and if it ever did happen they're blood would be on Obamas hands the same way its on his hands for Fast & Furious scandal.

    Excellent post. I heard this morning MSNBC anmed "some" group we in our righteous might plan to support. I never heard of them and neither has anyone else. Even if I had heard of them I would be my home 50% are linked to causes that hate America. How many young Americans have to fall for these bullshet political quagmires sent to war by filthy scumbag politicans that at the time of their youth never joined any military service because they are afraid to get hurt. We now have stepped back in to the shet pile of another cold war and this time Putin is running the show and he is no Gorbachov.
