New YouTube video from the Syrian battlefield shows rebels firing the same high-powered sniper rifle favored by U.S. Navy SEALs, leaving some experts wondering who the ragtag army of insurgents might train the guns on in the future.
“The video, showing jihadist rebels of the ‘Descendents of the Prophet Brigade’ firing one of the world’s most effective sniper rifles, should be cause for alarm,” said David Reaboi, of the Washington-based Center for Security Policy.“We don’t know who has been supplying this group (or the myriad others) with these weapons but, given the jihadist ideology of these groups, it’s only a matter of time until they’re turned on Americans or our allies and interests.”

It must be hard to argue about both sides of a subject.

Rail against the president supporting a UN restriction on the international arms trade, and then throwing a fit when they actually sends weapons out of the country......

It does seem a little hypocrtical that the Obama administration gives these weapons to other countries, but will not let Americans have them. Yes I agree with Bob, spelling shouldn't matter when outrage takes over from logic.....

It's no more hypocritcal than howling about the President signing an agreement with the UN to limit international arms trading.

Take your pick......

Should we restrict No. Korea from selling weapons to other countries?

Can we stop them? That treaty isn't worth the paper it's written on.

If you listen to the talking heads, we supposedly have the right to stop them.....

So if that is correct, how do we make the argument that we are exempt from the same rules we want others to live by?

I ask you the something. You want to restrict or even take guns away from responsible citizens but allow for them to go to terrorists. Make up your F'ng mind!

Because we got it first. Why don't you move away if you hate this country so much and think that America is so in humane and immoral. Jay Carney just said he and the administration would not be surprised if North Korea launched a missile towards the United States. That should make you happy today.
