It seems obvious to an outsider, that the US, are holding almost a protective wing over their fraction of their own making in Afghanistan, namely the Mujahedin, now also known as Taliban or Al Quaeda! By providing them with protective gear, against chemical weapons? Why? Is the US planning to stage (by proxy's of course!), another big chemical attack? Why else would they do such a thing? Some one have a credible other explanation, feel free to let me know!

Please tell me how that works: First, Obama just about starts WWIII for “humanitarian grounds”. . . So, is it OK to use chemical weapons after all? I guess it just depends which side you are on.

  


If you want to know whose side Obama is on? Just search Youtube for -- "Yes we can" in reverse speech -- and you will have a better idea of exactly whose side Obama is on. On a subconscious level, Obama is telegraphing much through his signature phrase -- "Yes we can!" -- which reversed sounds very much like: "Thank you Satan." Spooky, no?

This is beyond just wrong. This is illegal nationally and internationally. This is Iran-Contra being smeared in our face. This is pure anti-American TREASON using my tax dollars to arm a bunch of Al-Qaeda thugs that just two months ago were sitting in prisons in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemin for trying to kill American soldiers. Stop this Mr. President or be prosecuted for crimes against humanity by your own pissed off people.

Please tell me how that works: First, Obama just about starts WWIII for “humanitarian grounds” without having “airtight proof or conclusions” that Assad used the chemical weapons (but fortunately was stared down by Putin, just as Khrushchev was stared down by Kennedy over Cuba i.e.: putting some sense in the other guy’s nugget) and then “the Obama administration waived provisions of a federal law which ban the supply of weapons and money to terrorists”. So, is it OK to use chemical weapons after all? I guess it just depends which side you are on.

This is what happens when people rely on reading erroneous headlines in basing or reaffirming their views. The Syrian regime is considered a state sponsor of terror and is listed as a terrorist regime along with the Islamic regime in Iran. Therefore in order to aid the rebels and the Syrian people, we must waive that provision in aiding the Free Syrian Army.

  


Th is is what happens when someone doesn't understand that the Free Syrian Army is made up of terrorists.

Yes, we can: make the same mistakes again.

America and the West need to drop dead those five Camels and move on! These emirates have blood in their hands, and need to be brought to accounts, so much blood in their hands and to face true justice here in this life, on this earth, or in the life after, these engineered killings in Iraq, Syrian and every where must stop at once! Financed by fake kingdoms, as their near end is approaching, to save their skins,...solution to erect and lay few pipes through Syria and to grab of what is Syrian and Syrians Natural and God given gifts, on shore or off shores is wrong, Syrian have the right to work Russians & Iran!

I quote above: "if the President determines that the transaction is essential to the national security interests of the United States." No,..& big NO! It is strange? How about the security of other nations? If we ain't brothers & sisters in God, then we must be at least brothers & sisters in humanity! America needs total over whole (Metanoia) change of heart, so all Americans! We do no wish them harm or failure, but share resources with other Nations, Leader in leading peace efforts everywhere, be empire partner with others, and new One, set foundations for working path for global harmony, with Iran, Russia, Israel!

Syrian civil war is basically a power-play between two Islamic factions slaughtering each other: shia and sunni. Assad={shia, secular, moderate, pro-Iran} and Rebels={sunni, religious, jihadist, pro-Saudi}. Without ongoing US/Saudi military assistance to the terrorists, this war would probably be over in a week. Saudi Arabia is trying to get the region in Sunni order for their next move of Muslim world domination. This can’t happen without direct US involvement in Syria.
