Fighting for sectarian interest is fraught with dangers.
When your ally is the dirty vermin Jew scum the enemy of your Country's history it is inconceivable that you can win.
Swallow your pride Jew bride and hop in your hole shortly someone will come along to cover you up. Don't worry.

They want big guns for what? To cleanse Syria of Shi'a, Alawatis, Druze, Christians and heretical Sunnis?

Be careful what you wish for, Mr. President.

This Obama U-turn should stop the Geneva Peace-Talks in its tracks.

UK was trying to bribe the rebels to attend with an offer of arms if they attended Peace-Talks but the rebels told the UK to fu-k off and just cough-up (after-all, it was the UK-USA's idea in 2009 to overthrow the Syrian Government).
Cameron now nods in approval, like a good bitch.

Thing is this; Can the Syrians down a bloody F-16?

Unlike the Libyan war of liberation the west has it wrong on the Syrian civil war

The Americans, British & French should not be arming the opposition in Syria, doing so is like throwing oil into the fire. More & more extremist Sunni's are crossing the Iraq/Syria frontier everyday.

If Basar al assad's secular alawite muslim regieme falls it could have a domino effect in which Shia majority Iraq & religiously fractured Lebanon can ireversably be further destabalized

Its bs why would Assad use chemical weapons on only a few people all together? And risk this propaganda that we see before our eyes, only a few months ago all the stories about chemical use went quiet without a trace thats because the actually found out that those dog terrorists (rebels) used it. Same lies that happend in iraq and libya, a few days ago the rebels killed 60 shia villages im a sunni myself however how come no one acted on that? Thoses scummy rebels get money and weapons from all others countries, now that the syrian army is taking over strategic places the west is getting more involved.USA sent some 4000 troops along with jets to Jordan last week aprently as a exercise to help protect jordan but now they want to use those jets and troops to inforce a no fly zone near the jordan border so they can hand over weapons to the terrorist. I hope Assad wins this war and Russia and Iran send more arms to help the syrian army! Over 80% of accual syrians support Assad, the media only show thses 10% that dont support him most off the fighters against the regime arnt even syrian, they are terrorists from other countries even al qiada is in there, usa and england have fucked this world right up fkn greedy fuckers. Im an Assad supporter and im not even shia or alawi muslim as the media make it out to be a secterian war agains sunni and shia.Assad is an alawi which is a type of shia, the world make it out to be that its shia agains sunni (the rebels) even tho more than 75% of the syrian army are sunni! These are facts look them up.This is all a proxy war!!

The real beggars are the forgers of dead young girls diaries, that they use as political propaganda .
You can't get much lower than that.
Begging for sympathy so they can indulge their pleasures raping, pillaging, murdering, maiming and crippling innocent men, women and children.
Not to mention stealing their property and even their identity.
Yes they are the beggars of our species who have probably drought it to an end such is the depth of their evil .
But to whom am I referring.?
As if,---- You didn't know.

as it is in afghanistan, US provided arms and training of them results in the arms being turned against US personnel both military and civilian. what makes odumbo think it won't be the same in syria ? morons are doomed to repeatedly not learn from prior experience. maybe the prez will realize that when he has to duck some of his own 'supplied to al queda' ordinance himself.

I hope to God that the NSA keeps tight tabs on this anti-American abc creature.

What good is this expensive surveillance venture of ours if we can't purge the country of the morally bankrupt?

Another example of the american dictatorship at work... do the american people even want to help the rebels? We dont know... congress didnt vote to send arms to the rebels... the president simply signed an executive order on his own accord...

It's a good time to get WWIII poppin.' Makes sense. I gotta admit, the internet has been a b**ch for business as usual. Everybody now understands how these crooks and incompetents operate and its pretty weird for everybody. We see how it operates through lies, manipulation and distraction, and so it's on- a contest to see if we can fight through all the lies, distractions and manipulations they can throw at us. And now I see Trayvon now is back, as if all these revelations and the economy weren't enough. Even with the internet pulling back the curtain, the criminals still have the upper hand because of the sheer volume of chaos they can stir up. And now the US is gonna escalate Syria, and maybe throw in some Iran, and some high oil prices. And maybe even use the [email protected] to collapse the rancid Ponzi, and take out the detractors of the regime. Sure is scary.
All I know is, I sure don't see 2001-2006 coming back. Those were awesome times for the US.
How can you fuel yourself with dreams or hopes with such a dark future? If I can't envision tomorrow, there's nothing to do but obsess over how horrible things are.
