Arming the Wrong Side with Congressional Approval

Arming the Wrong Side with Congressional Approval

Free Syrian Army fighters by gaslight‘We are collaborating with the Islamic State and the Nusra Front by attacking the Syrian Army’s gatherings in…Qalamoun.’
Admission by Bassel Idriss, commander of a Free Syrian Army brigade

NOT good folks…NOT good at all.
As our country’s top generals continue to urge Obama to reconsider his pledge NOT to send American ‘boots on the ground’ into Iraq to help in the fight against ISIS…to fight against his brethren of sorts…both the House and the Senate sold ‘We the People’ and America itself out yet again.

Cleverly and calculatingly attached to a short-term spending bill to fund the government and keep it up and running through December11th at a $1.012 trillion level…by a 273 to 156 vote…the House voted in favor of arming and training the anything but ‘moderate’ Syrian rebels…specifically the Free Syrian Army.

fsa4 membersAnd in the Senate, 44 Democrats, 33 Republicans, and one independent voted for the bill, while 9 Democrats, 12 Republicans*, and one independent voted against the bill. Sadly, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell also voted for this abomination of a bill knowing full well that Obama’s “NO Strategy’ strategy to defeat ISIS will NEVER happen for Obama does NOT want to defeat ISIS…he still wants to ‘manage’ ISIS…manage ISIS with perhaps him calling all the shots.

But to make this vote all the more grievous is that when you break the numbers down, in the House 159 Republicans** voted in support of a bill that actually ‘aids and abets’ the enemy with only 71 Republicans voting against it…while 114 Democrats supported it with 85 of their party voting against it. And in the Senate with only 12 Republican Senators opposing this bill, the sad fact is that our own party sold us out by allowing this vote to pass.

fsa1 only congress can declare warNOT that this vote really means anything as Barack HUSSEIN Obama has said time and again that he has the authority any time he so chooses to order the Pentagon to deploy airstrikes against ISIS fighters in Syria as well as in Iraq. But actually he does NOT for while the Constitution states that the President as Commander-in-Chief is authorized to conduct war, Article One, Section Eight, Clause 11…sometimes referred to as the War Powers Clause…clearly states that “Congress shall have power to…declare War”…meaning that Congress must first enact a declaration of war in order to commit the U.S. to war before the president can conduct war.

And Obama knows this but simply does NOT care just like he does NOT care that his ‘NO Strategy’ strategy plan to have U.S. troops train Syrian rebels…train the Free Syrian Army at camps in Saudi Arabia…could take up to a year…for this allows ISIS to grow stronger…something he seems to so want.

fsa5 fightersAnd Obama also wants the Free Syrian Army to be part of his anything but a true coalition…to send the Free Syrian Army into battle against ISIS equipped to the hilt with US arms even knowing that they support and work with ISIS and have the same goal as ISIS…have the same goal as him actually…as in taking down al-Assad’s secular government and replacing it with a Sunni sharia state and having that state part of the ISIS wanted caliphate. And what better way to do that than to delay with ‘supposed’ training those who should be but won’t be the ones going into battle.

But with this most disgraceful of votes Obama can now say that he has full Congressional support to get the U.S. involved in the Syrian civil war…in a war with a sovereign nation NOT at war with us…in a war where Obama has aligned himself…and thus America…with the wrong side or to be more precise has aligned himself with the enemy for the Free Syrian Army…including those members he claims to have vetted…are directly linked to al-Nusra and al-Qaeda…are directly linked together to fight Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian Armed Forces…and together they are ISIS…ISIL…the Islamic State…take your pick as they’re all one and the same.

fsa6 masked fightersAnd those in Congress know all this and many even have serious concerns about the Free Syrian Army yet they still voted to fund and arm them, and for that those who voted ‘yea’…I believe…are just as guilty of ‘aiding and abetting’ the enemy as Barack HUSSEIN Obama is.

And as ISIS continues to spew threats against America…threats Obama says have NO tangible proof behind them…I guess two Americans and one Brit being beheaded sends NO message at all except that they interrupted his golf game that is…Obama keeps harping again and again that America must support the anything but ‘moderate’ Free Syrian Army. And don’t you find that more than just a wee bit unnerving…and don’t you thing red flags should be raised…as the Free Syrian Army is as guilty of beheadings, raping, and slaughtering civilians…slaughtering Christians…as is ISIS…the group from which they were born.

Also, remember that the CIA and Obama had secretly been sending weapons and arms to the Free Syrian Army for quite sometime…can you say Benghazi… weapons and arms stockpiles that were raided by ISIS and al-Nusra (the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria) while the Free Syrian Army looked away…meaning that ISIS might have actually won some of their battles…killed a multitude of civilians…using Obama supplied American weapons and arms. And let’s NOT forget that last December both the U.S. and Britain stopped sending weapons and arms to the Free Syrian Army but that this past April, Obama started arming them again…this time arming them with heavy weapons like tanks and anti-aircraft missiles…and now he’s insisting…and Congress agreed…that we arm them yet again…this time to the tune of $500+ million.

fsa7 3 fightersSo if we continue to arm the Free Syrian Army…a group most assuredly tied to ISIS and al-Qaeda…with deals in place NOT to step on each others toes…one has to wonder why first, Obama is NOT completely and outwardly backing both our allies the Kurds and the religious minorities who are being slaughtered by the likes of ISIS…and second…and this thought is beyond simply scary…if when Obama had all our troops pull out of Iraq if he didn’t deliberately insist on leaving behind all those helicopters, tanks, military equipment, and arms so that his brethren could secure them and eventually and easily form a circle of sorts with Israel at its targeted dead center…the Obama condoned and oh so wanted Levant finally come to fruition.

Just something to think about…just something to consider…as only one aligned with those out to kill us all would do what he is doing…or should I say NOT doing.
