US And Russia Simultaneously Announce Intent To Arm Opposing Sides In Syria


I'm usually not one to promote conspiracies but I can see where this is intended to make sure Muslims can kill each other much more efficiently in Syria.

In an almost palpable irony, Russian and U.S. officials simultaneously announced their intent to move forward with controversial arms transfers to opposing sides in the Syrian civil war Monday.

Congressional hurdles have been lifted and weapons will soon flow into the hands of Syrian rebels, according to a Reuters report

Half a world away, a representative of Syria's embattled President Bashar al Assad left a meeting with Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow. “All agreements between Russia and Syria in the area of arms deliveries are in place,” said Qadri Jamil on Monday.

Hey I'm all for Muslims dying :NB4randomButthurtIslamsympathizer:, as efficiently and painfully as possible.

But let's say we back the side that loses, what impact does this have on the US?

And Christians, and women and children.

Remember guys, vote them out of office if you don't like how we're aiding in the slaughter of civilians. I know it kind of sucks, but it's the best system we have.

Further weakens our standing around the world. Since Obama has been president, the US has taken a back seat to every other "power" in the world. We used to be a super power, now, due to Obama and the liberals, we are a joke.

Obama backed the wrong side in Egypt, Libya, etc... and the left still defends him. 2016 can't get here soon enough.

I'm hoping for a slight increase in common sense. But you are probably right. The jackasses are reigning supreme in America.

The rest of the world respects us so much more since Obama has been President. Putin is laughing his arse off. Obama reminds me of the kid on the playground who figures if you tell people what they want to hear, they'll like you and be your friend.

The idea of arming the Syrian rebels seems absolutely asinine to me.

Our government just doesn't have a clue anymore.

We need to back out altogether. We have no business getting involved in this mess.

I can't wait for the moment when the US and Russia simultaneously announce the intent to move troops into Syria to support opposing sides.

So Obama is getting us into another war?

I thought all the outrage Bush caused the United States was because we, as a country, meddle too much in the rest of the world?

Read my post in this thread and it should make more sense to you. This conflict is about O&G.

MIght as well just go ahead and declare war on Russia and get it over with.

Nothing like some nationalism and war industry to spur the economy

It was. Obama has gone back on everything he ever promised foreign policy wise. It's absolutely disgusting to watch.

Flash back to the 80s, during the First Persian Gulf War. The United States & USSR were harming arming opposite sides, and then at one point the United States was arming both sides. Ended up being one of the longest wars in the 20th century.
