This is a concise look at Syria and US aid to the rebels.

Syria - Summary

Syrian Rebels Massacre Christian Enclave (Reported May 2013)

My summary below 9/13

In April the Obama administration publicly announced that it would send nonlethal aid to the Syrian rebels. This is also an admission that the administration had already been aiding the rebels for some time.

It was a public secret in Washington that Benghazi was the key to arming the rebels fighting Assad. A view that has not been looked at closely.

But, what is going on with the rebels? How have they been using the aid provided by the US?

In May 2013 the UN was looking at evidence that the rebels used sarin gas. Sarla del Ponti, a human rights expert at the UN, called the evidence strong, concrete suspicions that fell short of incontrovertible proof.Concrete suspicions? That sounds suspiciously like conjecture, or them saying they do not know who did what.

John Kerry recently questioned whether the Assad regime had used the gas on the rebels, thereby lending the appearance of credence to the administration. Credence, that is, to some.

It all sounds about as clear as mud. What's clear is that there are chemical weapons in Syria. The Assad regime had manufactured chemical weapons and stockpiled them.

What is also clear is that rebels and Assad supporters have both held chemical weapons compounds. Also, neither group has shown any great care towards the non-fighting civilians or what happens to people in the crossfire.

What is our return on this investment so far?

MEMRI.org posted and detailed a video of Syrian teens armed with assault rifles. The teens were singing "We destroyed America with a civilian plane." This shows their allegiance to al Qaeda.

Alright, you say, these teens were just dancing and singing. This rebel coalition, the the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and their affiliates, have also slaughtered a Christian village.

The Assyrian International News Agency (AINA) reported in June of this year that “The armed rebels affiliated to the Free Syrian Army (FSA) raided the Christian-populated al-Duvair village in Reef (outskirts of) Homs near the border with Lebanon today and massacred all its civilian residents, including women and children. The Syrian army, however, intervened and killed tens of terrorists during heavy clashes which are still going on in al-Duvair village.”

They used te arms we gave them and the money we provided to slaughter the men, women, and children of a small Christian village trying to just survive. To practice their right to choose how to worship.

Now, the Administration wants to go on the ground with US Troops supporting al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.
