    US will supply military weapons to the Syrian rebels.

    U.S. to increase military support to Syria rebels | Reuters

    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.

    America's defense contractors always win.

    But most of the rebels have sworn allegiance to Al Qaeda.

    I think Obama's decision has more of an objective of distraction from the IRS targeting conservatives, Obama's dereliction of duty and allowing four Americans to be murdered in Benghazi, warrantless searches of phone records and having the NSA snoop and pooping on all Americans.

    I kinda of remember President Clinton doing the same thing when cum stains were discovered on some girls dress, Clinton blew up an aspirin factory and a Chinese Embassy.

    Huh, I thought we'd given all our spares out to the Mexican drug lords.

    Do we also have "undeniable proof" that the rebels receiving these guns aren't the sort of folk that make computers in DC light up everytime they make a phone call?

    6%, is that all ? Al Qaeda seems to have a PR problem in Syria. Maybe they should look at Al Qaeda in Libya and learn something.

    Since Obama has allowed the Navy to literally fall apart, I can't see Obama being capable of having four carriers at sea at any time. He has problems having two carriers covering all five of the Navy's AOR's.

    I bet we already have troops on the ground in Jordan and the CAP over Syria to enforce the "no fly zone" will be conducted from Jordan.

    Didn't someone just last week on the DP predicted that with all of the Obama's scandals and investigations that are going on, that Obama needed a distraction like a little war ?

    Since Obama...
    No, not "since Obama". Since you have no ****ing clue what you're talking about - that's the important part.
