I really don't think Ahmad needs to lobby for anything; It's already been given.

The terrorists in Syria are in the tens of thousands, and not just 3000. And the evil Americans & their slaves support the terrorists. This is well beyond the abilities of the terrorists & America's slaves to comprehend.


US deployed troops (hired terrorists) are being armed to the teeth by US, UK, FR, Saudis, Israel b/c US need to put a puppet in power in Syria to take control of their oil. This is the master plan by US to control oil supply in Eurasia.

US and EU are bankrupt and in addition to the oil they will try to steal Syria's gold.

It does, but Obama took care of that when he waived the ban on arming terrorists so he could aid his "moderate" rebels.

'Anti Zionism':
Most Americans are against White House-Congress foreign policy, including arming rebels in Syria. However, the ridiculous mainstream media ignore us, purposely hide vide of us protesting their narcissism, and the federal government effectively ignores or suppresses our vote, then tells the world it's citizens are supportive. Remember this is the same government that tells the world that the 'international community' supports the U.S. in Syria. If they tell that lie, then they lie when they say the average American citizen supports them. We need help to free us of this tyranny in Washington.

Of course U.S. weapons will end up in the hands of Al Qaeda. The West created that "Frankenstein&q uot; terrorist group, which was stitched together with fledgling criminal groups form across the Middle East. Even a 5th grader can see that Syria still stands in the way of American-Israeli imperialist, self-centered "democracy.&quo t;

"Washington’s new initiative aims to find out whether it can supply opposition forces in Syria with weapons without them falling into the hands of Islamist extremists"

I presume they will only "find out" when a commercial jet is shot down.
