Syria: How is Aiding Our Enemies Preserving Our National Security?

Once again America is taking the role of being the world’s police supposedly to protect our national security, but is that the real reason?

The civil unrest in Syria has been going on for some time.  Rebels have been trying to topple the regime of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad.  The State Department lists Assad’s government as a terrorist organization, which incidentally employs President Barack Obama’s brother Malik Obama.

Amid rumors that Assad would use chemical weapons against the rebels and his own people, President Obama told the world that if he did, the US would aid the rebel cause to oust him.  Confirmations of the use of chemical weapons have been made and now the US is preparing to send military weapons and aid to the Syrian rebels.

But are the rebels fighting to oust Assad any better than he is?  Exactly who are the Syrian rebels?

According to one report, there are a number of different groups fighting against the Syrian government:

  • Free Syrian Army: Non-sectarian group of fighters.
  • Syrian Liberation Front: An Islamic group of fighters.
  • Syrian Islamic Front: An Islamic group of fighters.
  • Followers of Jabhat al-Nursa: An al-Qaeda group from Iraq.

Even though the Free Syrian Army claims to be non-sectarian, it is largely comprised of Muslims and will likely establish an Islamic regime if they win freedom.  Most of them defected from the Syrian Army; however, a growing number of them are now defecting again to join those following Nursa and their sworn allegiance to al-Qaeda in Iraq.

So who exactly is the US giving aid to and how does that protect our national security?

Are we only going to aid the Free Syrian Army since they claim to be non-sectarian, even though they are predominately Islamic?  Are we going to aid the other groups who will definitely establish another Islamic government that hates the US?  Are we going to aid those loyal to al-Qaeda, our sworn enemies?

So please tell me how replacing one Islamic government in Syria with another helps protect our national security?  The US will spend billions of dollars to aid Islamic rebels who like their Egyptian counterparts, consider the US to be their enemies.  President Obama has already committed treason by aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt who have openly stated that the US is their enemy and they must fight us.  Is he about to commit another act of treason by aiding and abetting more of our enemies?

The Muslim world is much like the American Indians before the Europeans landed on the continent.  There were many different tribes and many of them constantly warred with other tribes.  The same holds true in the Middle East.  There are many different tribes or ethnic groups and a number of them have been fighting each other for over a thousand years and will most likely continue to fight each other until one wipes the other out or the world ends.  What makes our leaders believe that they can do anything to change that and bring out about peace in the region?

The US is still in the heart of a financial crisis.  Our national debt is skyrocketing every day.  We have millions of Americans that have no jobs and have lost their homes.  The number of Americans living at or below the poverty line is also increasing on a daily basis.  Untold numbers of American children go to bed hungry every night and we are about to spend who knows how many billions of dollars aiding our enemies supposedly in the name of our national security.

When will our leaders realize that we can’t continue to be the world’s police, especially when we can’t even take care of ourselves?  If Obama truly wanted to help our national security, he would concentrate his efforts here not abroad.  He would work with Congress to help the economy and create jobs and secure our borders.  Remember the old adage ‘charity begins at home’?  That needs to become our nation’s mantra.

    Getting involved in another war is not only foolish, it's suicidal. These people have been fighting each other since the beginning of time and will continue to do so right up till the end. This is where life began, and this is where it will all end - in the Middle East. The rebels are non other than members of Al Qaida, and Assad is the devil incarnate, one of many. He has killed almost a hundred thousand of his own people. It's been proven that he's used chemical weapons on at least a hundred of them. All this while Turkey is exploding, Iraq and Afghanistan are still in turmoil, Egypt is still unstable, and Iran is sending troops to Syria. Israel must be sweating bullets as China and Russia lean more toward helping Syria and her allies. This entire scenario is becoming increasingly apocalyptic, as more countries are getting ready to join the battle.

      I think patriot is all mixed up. Assad at least wasn't massacring Christians, as his enemies are busy doing even as we speak. I think any replacement of his leadership will be worse than Assad has been by far. Obama is helping Islam to take control of all the mid-East. I think his aim is to turn us over to Islam after he does his best to limit our ability to repel enemies.

      • patriotusa2

        I don't know where you're coming from, but to say that I'm mixed up because he isn't killing Christians when he has slaughter almost a hundred thousand people is really something else. There's a lot of innocent women and children getting slaughtered and if you're okay with that just because they are not Christians, so be it, but don't expect me to feel the same way. All those leaders in the ME are butchers with rare exceptions to the rule and Assad is known for being a mass killer just as his father was.

        • Ray_Downen

          You seem sure that reports you've heard are accurate, patriot. I'm aware that much propaganda is published, whether true or false. I don't believe Assad is fighting against his own people. I think his enemies are Muslims seeking to occupy his territory and gain control of his citizens. The "media" cannot be believed, but patriot seems to believe they're reporting truth. You claim that Assad is a "mass killer." I think you're tragically mistaken. -- Ray Downen

        • patriotusa2

          Once again Ray, you are entitled to believe whatever you want. To say that I believe all things coming from the media is a ridiculous assumption to make considering all my other posts which you obviously haven't read. As far as Assad is concerned, I stand by my convictions.

  • Bobseeks

    When you see two murderers trying to kill each other, you let them alone.

    • Screeminmeeme

      Exactly.

  • suzy2

    We don't even know Who the Rebels really are. Obama could be sending weapons directly to our enemies. Our leaders are idiots to even allow Obama to make such a decision. Obama has already proven he is either an idiot or a proven enemy to America. Thanks a lot you stupid Democrats and Obama supporters. You really F---k our country!

    • Ray_Downen

      It's obvious that Obama is arming enemies of liberty. With OUR dollars, meanwhile setting up our armed forces to go to battle with old equipment and poor leadership (since the good generals are not loyal to Obama). We're in trouble!

  • seravo

    History, if it is poorly understood, has a way of repeating itself. Think Cuba, Viet Nam, Nicaragua, Afghanistan, Egypt. . . Would someone in the White House please pick up a book every now and then and familiarize yourself with our own history?
    This effort will not end well - that is all but given. It will, however help perpetuate the endless wars which are so profitable for the defense industry. Soon, it will be our only industry.

    • Ray_Downen

      It appears that Obama is cutting out the heart of our armed services by NOT replacing equipment lost in battle and by NOT ordering additional planes and ships which will be needed and which take years to build. He's arming his people here in the U.S.A. to force patriots to give up our liberties. We've not been at war these past many years just to make profits for armament manufacturers. It's been (until Obama) to make the world safe for democracy, to fight against Islam's aim of ruling the world. -- Ray Downen.

  • foxxybey

    Obozo demo-rat-in-chief has never found a Islamic he doesn't bow too. Has a agenda for America to become a 3rd world country so his brother Islamist can take us over for their little god Allah.

  • joshuasweet

    it is about time someone else started to call them as they are. Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood expansion against the mores of a civilized world treason. now we must act as he has spreads their influences even further even inside of our nations government.

  • USARetired

    John McCain has been aiding and abetting the enemy since Vietnam and has not stopped since! He diffinately is in bed with O'Bozo on this one ! Both Muslim kiss'n fools!

    • Ray_Downen

      I like to read true reports. USARetired is accusing McCain of treachery. I think McCain is a patriot, not always right, but always intending to stand for what is right. Therefore I am not pleased to read attacks which probably are not true. -- Ray Downen.

      • USARetired

        Before you mistakenly stand up for McCain, do yourself a favor and read the documentary, 'An Enormous Crime', The definitive account of American POWs in Southwest Asia, by authors, former U.S. Rep, Bill Hendon (R-NC) and Elizabeth A. Stewart. I stand by my statement McCain has more skeletons in his closest then Charles Manson!

        • mydogpopo

          clinton, mccain (none of these people deserve capital letters in their name)
          supported obambo on this issue........they r all responsible.

        • Ray_Downen

          I don't believe everything I read. I have no reason to read attacks on McCain's patriotism. I'm thrilled that he survived such a long captivity, but sorry that some now want to say thanks by speaking evil of him. Those who survived deserve our thanks no less than the soldiers who served well and were able to return. The prisoners were left behind. -- Ray Downen.

    Obama is backing flesh eaters, wonder if he is a flesh eater.Cause his brain acts disease like those of
    Cannibalisms

  • Screeminmeeme

    Within the past month the Syrian rebels, who Obama is supporting, committed genocide by killing every man, woman and child who were Christians in the town of Homs.....and few Americans heard a thing about it. Why? Because Obama and his puppet media don't care if Christians are slaughtered.

    The ''good'' Muslim rebels.....those who obey the Quran and wage Jihad against non-Muslims (in particular Christians and Jews)...... are lauded by the administration as ''freedom fighters''...when, in fact, they are homicidal maniacs doing the devil's work.

    • Bobseeks

      True - all true muslims are murderers and oppressors.

  • Fleendar the magnificent

    The Syrian rebels Obama is pledging support to are the very ones who have sworn an alliance with Al Queda. This means that he is aiding and abetting terrorists.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    I actually have a better idea. We should arm both sides in Syria so that they can kill each other off.

    • willytea

      Just wait a few years until the mulahs start in on nuke-rich Pakistan - overthrow the dictator and install an islamic state. Having nukes will energize the Islamists like no other capability has. The dominos are falling.

  • Ray_Downen

    Why ask whether Obama will arm our enemies? Isn't that exactly what he's been doing right along? It would be good if every patriot realized that our worst enemy today is Obama. -- Ray Downen.

  • LittleMoose

    The Obama policy is to arm the Islamist terrorists and disarm the American people.

  • mydogpopo

    Another stupid move by our great muslim leaders...................
