Time For A Distraction: SYRIA

Syria War Imminent…

What better way to take the main stream heat off of the growing number of scandals among the executive branch, the NSA and the rest… than to re-focus attention elsewhere… the Syrian civil war. The thing is though… this could backfire big time…


 
We are hearing more and more about Syria, Assad, chemical weapons, and ‘rebels’. Now it is being reported that Iran is sending a first contingent of 4,000 Revolutionary Guard troops to assist President Assad while Russia also sends military aid. Why is the U.S. administration sending military supplies to the rebels? Is the U.S. looking for war with Syria? Does the U.S. need yet another war? Can the U.S. afford yet another war? Does the U.S. understand the risks of this one??

The United States has managed to put up with Syria and President Bashar Assad for many decades. So why now, suddenly supporting the rebels? Why is the CIA arming and training Islamist rebels? Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said Saturday that U.S. troops are in neighboring Jordan and will leave behind fighter jets and a cache of Patriot missiles.

Do you know who the rebels are? They are radical Islamists who pledge support to al-Qaeda. Yes, that’s right… look it up yourself. The U.S., according to a statement of support by Barrack Obama, is now decidedly directly and/or indirectly supporting the very terror groups whom he claims to be fighting a war on terror against. Does that make sense to you?

Foreign radical Islamists are streaming into the fight from the Middle East.

A little about the rebels…

The rebels across Syria are now forcing women to wear a full veil and whipping men who are seen with women in public. These same rebels just murdered a 15-year old boy, who was kidnapped and tortured for 24 hours before being dragged into the middle of a crowded street and executed in front of his father and mother. For what reason? For apparently arguing with a ‘rebel’ while he said, “Even if the Prophet Muhammad returns, I will not become a believer.”

The U.S. backed rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs, according to a nun who says the West is ignoring atrocities committed by Islamic extremists (dailymail.co.uk). The nun said taxi driver Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped after his brother was heard complaining that fighters against the ruling regime behaved like bandits. She said his headless corpse was found by the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs. He had recently married and was soon to be a father.

The US is now fully engaged on the side of armed groups which include the most extreme Sunni Islamist movements in the Middle East.

 
“The Independent” says this…

“In years to come, historians will ask how America – after its defeat in Iraq and its humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan scheduled for 2014 – could have so blithely aligned itself with one side in a titanic Islamic struggle stretching back to the seventh century death of the Prophet Mohamed”

Washington’s excuse for its new Middle East adventure – that it must arm Assad’s enemies because the regime has used sarin gas – an excuse that convinces no-one in the Middle East. Final proof of the use of gas by either side in Syria remains almost as nebulous as President George W. Bush’s claim that Saddam’s Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction.

 
Conveniently, should this escalate further, it will take the main-stream attention off the NSA spying on Americans scandal, the IRS scandal, and the executive branch scandals, while we launch into yet another war we cannot afford, one which may be the biggest of all – the one which draws in Russia and others – leading to no place good…

But hey… it’s just politics, right?
