Anti-War Prez Obama Orders “Military Support” to Syrian Al-Qaeda Linked Rebels

Using Syrian President’s Bashar al-Assad’s reported use of chemical weapons (the missing WMD from Iraq?) on his own citizens as a catalyst, a “red line” Obama said months ago that Syria must not cross–or else!–Mr. Obama has finally made a decision. Months after his ultimatum, the “or else” has arrived, much to the elation of War Drum Pounder John McCain: In an about face, the most unqualified president perhaps in American history, one who touted himself anti-war as Candidate Obama, is involving us in yet ANOTHER war:

The president has made a decision about providing more support to the opposition that will involve providing direct support to the [Supreme Military Council]. That includes military support,” Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communication Ben Rhodes told reporters.

And our “military support” will be (already is?) siding with the Syrian Rebels, reportedly heavily linked to Al Qaeda, our mortal enemy in the War on Terror. Now correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t aiding and abetting your enemy, one you are currently at war with, treason? Ah, but wait. Mr. Obama recently declared the War on Terror over (even though his NSA continues to spy on you and me and every other American citizen. You know. For our Safety). How convenient when one wishes to arm their former enemy in an effort to further the Rise of Radical Islam Arab Spring.

“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”

Now call me a conspiracy theorist, but I find the timing of Mr. Obama’s new-found muscle-flexing interesting. Could it be that he wishes to distract us from the plethora of scandals hanging around the neck of his regime like a stinking, rotting carcass? Would he be so callous as to send more of our troops into harm’s way in order to deflect our attention, or perhaps as a political move to make himself appear presidential as his poll numbers tank? I would hope that the answer is “no,” but given that everything he does seems to have a political motivation, well, I’m not holding my breath.

And I find it unconscionable that Mr. Obama is willing to expose our troops to injury and death in a civil war we really have no business entering (we cannot aid every warring country), when he refused to send aid to our four Americans under terrorist attack in Benghazi (reportedly a gun-running operation into Syria to covertly arm the rebels), leaving them to seven hours of unthinkable hell. Mr. Obama has shown no leadership skills. He has no credibility given all the scandals he and his administration are currently embroiled in. And now he’s put himself in charge of yet another inessential war. Pardon me if I don’t feel an ounce of confidence in his ability to command our forces, or for that matter, even care about their safety or their needs. The last war we entered morphed into one that still languishes twelve years later, with military casualties in Afghanistan increasing under Obama’s watch. Americans are war weary. The majority do not wish to send troops into Syria. But what do our voices matter?
