The very last thing in this world that the Obama administration should do is support the Jihadis in Syria and, yet, this looks exactly like they are planning to do.
The snippet below was written by Reuters and published by the Jerusalem Post:
'Wall Street Journal' reports buffer zone, that would cost $50 million a day, would stretch 25 miles into Syria, and be used to train rebels, protect refugees; Free Syrian Army to ask US for anti-tank, anti-aircraft missiles.The Obama administration has absolutely got to stop supporting various Jihadis.
As a part of its proposal to provide military aid to the Syrian rebels, the United States is studying setting up a limited no-fly zone in Syria close to the southern border with Jordan in order to protect Syrian refugees and rebel forces training in the area, two senior Western diplomats in Turkey said on Friday.
Their comments, confirmed by a third regional diplomat, came after Washington said it would step up military assistance to rebels battling President Bashar Assad in response to what it said was proof of chemical weapons use by Assad's forces...
US officials told the Journal the White House is considering proposals to arm and train the rebels in Jordan, but that Washington could decide to train rebels in Jordan without enforcing the no-fly zone.
I almost sympathize with the administration when it comes to Syria because, as I have said, there are no good options. Assad proved himself to be a vicious thug and the opposition is filled with Islamists. What I find stupefying, though, is the fact that so many progressive-left diaspora Jews support an American administration that supports the rise of political Islam.
How clueless must one be to literally, and even financially, support one's enemies?
The Obama administration needs to get out of the Middle East entirely, because Obama doesn't have the slightest clue what he is doing there. The United States is supporting the wrong people in that part of the world while harassing its only ally.
It's possible, I suppose, that Obama didn't quite know what he was doing when he helped usher the Brotherhood into power in Egypt - possible, but unlikely - but at this late date it cannot be possible that he doesn't know what he is doing by ushering the Brotherhood into power in Syria.
United States foreign policy under this administration is at least as dysfunctional as United States foreign policy under the last administration. At least George W. Bush understood that he opposed America's enemies. The same cannot be said for this administration. It's dangerous and pathetic and they seem to have learned nothing from the past.
Here's the bottom line:
The United States has got to stop supporting the rise of political Islam throughout the Middle East. That we have done so to begin with is a travesty because that movement opposes everything that we are supposed to stand for. What part of misogynist, murderously homophobic, and genocidally Jew-Hating does the Obama administration not understand?
This criticism, by the way, is not a criticism coming from Obama's right, but from his left.
There is nothing in this world farther hard-line right-wing than the Jihad. You want right-wing? Try shoving women into black sacks within which they get to walk around in all day long, every day. That's right-wing to the Nth Power. Do you know what is not right-wing?
Opposing this kind of oppression.
We have to stand up for ourselves and we have to speak out because this administration is entirely capitulating to the very worst actors on the world stage today.
The Day of the Dhimmi is Done.
Stand the Hell Up.
I'm just entirely disgusted, I have to tell you, but I am getting used to it.
