Syria - Obama's Next War
There has been a lot of commentary about a U.S intervention in Syria since a number of YouTube video have been posted by the rebels regarding a gas attack allegedly launched by Assad's forces that is supposed to have killed 500 people.
When seeing this stuff, its important to remember that both Muslim regimes and Islamist groups like al-Qaeda, the Palestinian Authority, Lashker e Tiaba, Hamas, Hezbollah, et al are very good at staging these sorts of things. al-Jazeera is based on this kind of propaganda.
The Arabs who refer to themselves as Palestinians are particularly noted for their use of propaganda, thus giving rise to the phrase ‘Pallywood’. Among many examples I could cite, during the so-called ‘Jenin Massacre’ ( heavily pushed by the BBC, which still has yet to apologize) a camera man actually caught a lot of the ‘corpses’ on their way to ‘mass graves’ jumping off stretchers and taking off. Maybe they thought someone yelled ‘cut’.
There was also ‘Green Hat Guy’, a Hezbollah operative who was caught carrying the same ‘corpse’ of a child at about a dozen sites during the 2006 war.
Assad’s people would also tell you that the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda rebels in al-Nusra have used gas on their forces. It is impossible to sort out the truth, especially from a bunch of YouTube videos.
And what if the gas attacks actually happened? If Syria's Christians weren't deemed worthy of a humanitarian intervention when al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood were ethnically cleansing them, why should America get involved now on behalf of the Islamists?
With the alleged gas attacks, there's a new push on to get the U.S to intervene, and I'm personally convinced this is no accident. Now that the Muslim Brotherhood has been crushed in Egypt, the president is planing to use U.S. blood and treasure to help the Islamists take over Syria.
I've already reported about the 1,800 U.S. Marines we have deployed on Jordan's border with Syria that came off the USS Kearsage. According to my sources, not only is President Obama considering sending these troops into battle, we also have advanced plans ready for a no fly zone to use American air power against Assad's forces to give the al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood rebels a haven where they can be supplied and launch attacks from.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey, who last surfaced calling for the U.S. to arm Hezbollah is in Jordan as I write this setting up a war room for CENTCOM's command staff. Over 3,000 Muslim Brotherhood rebels will occupy an enclave extending from the Jordanian border to front lines on the outskirts of Damascus, with Assad's forces kept at bay by drones, missiles and a squadron of U.S. F-16s I'm told is based in Jordan that nominally belong to Jordan but will be manned by U.S. pilots.
Our troops will be training and arming Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda forces like the al-Nusrah Front. And openly this time, not via clandestine operations like the failed Benghazi arms smuggling that cost 4 Americans their lives.
What Obama is trying to do here is what he tried to do in Libya..put an Islamist regime in power. That certainly turned out well, didn't it? Proponents of a U.S. intervention might also want to remember how that worked out when we armed the muhajadeen in Afghanistan. The Reagan Administration at least had the excuse of the bigger cause of fighting the Soviet Empire, and the fact that no one could have foreseen how this would lead to al-Qaeda and the rise of Islamic fascism. Neither of those excuses exist today.
As a side benefit for the Obama Administration, the reports of gas attacks provide an excuse for a program dear to our president's heart...the importation of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees into the U.S.
Syria is a front in the Islamic civil war between the Iranian mostly Shi’ite faction which includes the Brotherhood and the Sunni faction composed of the Saudis, the other GCE countries and now, apparently Egypt.
Which side we should back, the Brotherhood and al-Qaeda or Assad? And with what goal? Based on this president’s track record, do we really want him in charge of another illegal war?
And if the Brotherhood and al-Qaeda win, what happens to Assad's weaponry, his chemical weapons, his missiles? Since the Brotherhood is now allied with the Iranian bloc against the Saudis, its a sure bet that these weapons will either be used directly by the rebels against Israel or transferred to Hezbollah right next door. Hatred of Israel and Jews trumps everything, something that may not exactly concern the Obama Administration for reasons that ought to be obvious. Imagine a terrorist enclave on Israel's borders launching attacks on Northern Israel and protected by a U.S. no fly zone.
Not only that, but some of these weapons may very well be used to destabilize Jordan, where the Brotherhood is very strong, there's a significant tribal issue between the Bedouin ruling class and the 75% of Jordan's population that label themselves Palestinians and King Abdullah is holding on by his fingernails.
I fail to see how this benefits anyone but the Islamists. Certainly it doesn't benefit the U.S. or our ally Israel.
There are no good guys here, and a U.S. intervention has a good chance of making a horrible situation even worse.
It's time we stood up to this president's pro-Islamist agenda. Call your representatives in Congress NOW.
