As I attempted to finalize this post, which I began 72 hours ago, I ran across the following article in The Times of Israel entitled, “Obama said willing to overthrow Assad if Syria attacks US planes.”
Barack Obama has said he would authorize military forces to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad if regime troops attempt to shoot down American planes as they strike Islamic State targets in Syria, according to a New York Times report.
The move would represent a significant shift in Washington’s stated aims in Syria and Iraq, where a campaign of airstrikes has been planned to thwart the advance of the IS jihadi group….
Balderdash! The dither-in-chief is a punk looking for an excuse to take Syrian leader, Bashar Assad down, an attempt of which Barack Hussein Obama failed one year ago but through propaganda and crimes committed by the Islamic State, he has managed to get both parties on board and a lot of war weary Americans.
Adding to that, several years of appeasing our enemies with his “I’m going to give America the spanking she deserves” rhetoric, leading from behind, funding and arming Syrian rebels labeled Islamic moderates, Obama has created the Islamic State.
Obama announced his intent last week to “lead a broad collation to roll back the terrorist threat” against the Islamic State, the objective of which is supposedly the degradation and destruction of the jihadists. Said objective is nothing more than a straw man.
The agenda is to remove Bashar Assad finally through the funding and arming Syrian rebels who are formally in allegiance with the Islamic State.
Often at odds on the Syrian battlefields, the FSA, Nusra Front and ISIS have entered a tenuous allegiance of convenience to fight Assad-aligned forces in the badlands surrounding Arsal.
‘Weare collaborating with the Islamic State and the Nusra Front by attacking the Syrian Army’s gatherings in … Qalamoun,’ said Bassel Idriss, the commander of an FSA-aligned rebel brigade….
“Our battle is with the Assad regime, and it is on Syrian lands only…’
To the detriment of western nations, the result of which, will serve to strengthen and further empower the Islamic State. H/t Liberty News.
About Obama’s arming of Syrian “moderate” rebels and referencing the Islamic State as a creation of Obama:
Another practical problem developed with providing weapons to the FSA. As soon as weapons shipments from the CIA were arriving in Syria, the FSA weapons caches were being raided by jihadist groups, including ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, the official al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, under very suspicious circumstances. The problem got so bad that by last December, both the U.S. and the UK had stopped weapons shipments to the FSA.
But by April of this year, the Obama adminstration’s CIA weapons spigot was turned back on, with the FSA now receiving heavy weapons, including anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles. And in late June, President Obama asked Congress for $500 million to arm and train the FSA….
PJNet also points out in the above article that it is the FSA-aligned Dawud Brigade who kidnapped American journalist James Foley later beheaded by ISIS. The Dawud Brigade delivered Foley to ISIS as a token of submission after pledging allegiance to the jihadists.
As of last Friday’s reporting, ten Arab states have joined the coalition to take down Assad under the illusion of going after ISIS, i.e., Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates which is further evidence that Obama’s primary agenda is to take down Bashar Assad in spite of the threat that ISIS poses to the Middle East.
The Syrian rebel in the back on McCain’s right is ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
From John McCain to the League of Arab States, these same factions pushed for the take down of Assad a year ago.
Adding to that, Obama is a sore loser. He never lets anything go and while silent on the slaughter of Christians, other non-Muslims, the death of two Americans that means nothing to the despot opens the door to taking advantage of a good crisis.
Under the illusion of reigning in the Islamic State, Obama will fund and arm the same evil that drank the blood of Christians and wear their blood in viles on their necks, rape women, put their enemies’ heads on stakes, rape little girls and behead the weak and their enemies.
Obama’s Making a Fool out of Americans
Less than 48 hours after Obama’s faux declaration to take down ISIS with the assistance Syrian rebels to be armed and with American taxpayer dollars, the Islamic State reached a non-aggression pact with Syrian rebels in the suburb of the capital Damascus. H/t Shoebat Foundation.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the ceasefire deal was agreed between IS and moderate and Islamist rebels in Hajar al-Aswad, south of the capital.
Under the deal, the two parties will respect a truce until a final solution is found and they promise not to attack each other because they consider the principal enemy to be the Nussayri regime.’
Nussayri is a pejorative term for the Alawite sect, an offshoot of Shiite Islam to which President Bashar al-Assad belongs….
Up until this point, about the only ones who fail to realize that we are being lied to are the usual suspects.
