It is OK to be confused at this point. *scratches head*
If I could pick one word to describe Barack Obama’s foreign policy it would be “chaos.”
I am not sure how many Americans actually realize that the people we are now going to fight in Iraq are the same men that Barack Obama and congress have funded in Syria. Though this would not be the first time that our own soldiers have been shot at with guns we provided, this is now far beyond the point of insanity.
U.S. officials with access to the latest U.S. intelligence on Iraq told Fox News it “appears likely/probable” that U.S.-made Stinger missiles have fallen into the hands of Sunni insurgents.
It is possible that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters acquired them from army bases they have taken over in recent days, the sources said.
This just in! There is another possibility as well. Anyone who thinks that these terrorists have to beg, borrow or steal Stinger Missiles is a complete idiot. The CIA was running Stingers through Libya and those missiles were making their way to Syria. That is how we were funding the rebels before we officially funded the rebels.
And now those same rebels become our enemy, but only if they cross the Iraqi border. Those inside of Syria are still our friends. And if any of those in Iraq should take a break to head back to Syria, they become our friends once again. Any questions?
Furthermore, the same Iranians, whose motto is “Death to America,” are now clearly our friends but only inside the borders of Iraq. Actually with Obama that is not actually the case. He loves Iran. But for those of us with common sense, we are now being asked to consider Iran an ally, but only within the context of this new Iraqi conflict. We will all kill each other later.
You don’t hear much truth from the news media in America. But for anyone with any doubts, I’d like to share with you with a quote from the CBC:
You only have to look at the ruined towns northeast of the Syrian city of Aleppo to understand what happened in Iraq’s Mosul.
The names of “martyred” fighters line the walls, alongside invocations to obey Sharia law, through miles of crumpled buildings, rubble and unexploded ammunition.
“These people use different names, so if one is defeated the other can claim victory,” says Col. Mohamed Saleh of the Syrian army as he surveys the wreckage of a factory in which 27 of his soldiers were killed.
“They call themselves ISIL, al-Nusrah Front, Deach, but they are all the same.”
These very same jihadis — which the Syrian forces have been defeating — are now surging towards Baghdad, some of them, perhaps, the very same men who fought Bashar al-Assad’s regime in northern Syria.
Is it all crystal-clear now?
If you choose to believe this narrative that we are only supplying aid to the “good rebels” or “moderate rebels” in Syria then be my guest. Either way, they have weapons that were made here and will use them to try to kill our people. If you want to believe that they stole them from the “good rebels,” or from those they conquered, then I will respectfully disagree but it does not change the fact that this was bad foreign policy.
It isn’t much different then the stingers that were “stolen” in Libya or the M-16s that were “stolen” in Kuwait. At best it is incompetence. At worst it is complicity which spells TREASON.
This is America. We expect results.
Before you jump on the “Bush did this…” bandwagon, please save your breath. Bush did his fair share of damage. We have to find a way to deal with what is happening now. This is about having a leader who is not doing his job.
Obama has to go.
