President Barack Obama still continues to assist Islamic Sunni fighters including al-Qaeda, and the Republicans in Congress still support him. When does this stupidity end?
On Sunday, June 7, 2015, under the direction of President Obama, air strikes were conducted by Air Force and Navy attack aircraft in support of al-Qaeda.
U.S.-led coalition airplanes carried out four airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIL) in the town of Suran in the Aleppo province during a battle between the Islamic State and the Islamist coalition led by Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra.
The Islamic State had seized control of Suran the prior week and has since been fighting an alliance of Islamist rebels, including Al Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front and the Ahrar al-Sham movement in the surrounding area.
The previous month, Obama ordered air strikes against both Al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham. The last Obama-ordered strike against the al-Qaeda affiliate was on May 20th, near Aleppo
province in Syria, in which 15 Al-Nusra fighters were killed.
In May, our tax dollars were used to bomb al-Nusra; and in June, our tax dollars were used to bomb the Islamic State and help al-Nusra take a town. All of the fighters involved are Sunni.
Summing up in a paragraph: Three to four years ago, the United States helped to arm the al-Qaeda offshoot which became the Islamic State (ISIL) with the idea that it was more “moderate” than Jabhat al-Nusra–which is part of al-Qaeda. Then the United States armed Sunni fighters such as the Hazzm Movement, associated with the Free Syrian Army, to fight al-Nusra and the Islamic State. But the Hazzm Brigade joined with al-Nusra in January 2015. Obama then ordered the bombing of al-Nusra along with the Hazzm Brigade, which we had armed and trained. Then this month, we bombed the ISIL during a battle to help al-Nusra and other al-Qaeda affiliated groups, including the Hazzm Brigade.
If you understand the paragraph above, congratulations–because I wrote it, and I don’t even understand it. No one can understand the so-called strategy of President Barack Obama in Syria. What is even more mind-boggling is that Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham want President Obama to do more of whatever it is he is doing.
President Obama and a majority of Republican Senators want to somehow defeat the secular government of Syria dominated by Shiites and disband that nation’s army, just as was done in Iraq. At the same time, they want to defeat the Islamic State, as well as all al-Qaeda-associated groups including al-Nusra. After all these groups are defeated, including the ones we armed and trained in the past, the final goal is to establish a “democracy” in Syria. That really worked well for us in Iraq, Libya, and Yemen, didn’t it?
What is the result of the plans advocated by Barack Obama, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham? Their plans are destroying the churches founded by the Apostles including Peter, Paul, and John. Hundreds of thousands of Christians driven from their homes. Thousands of Christian men murdered. Thousands of Christian women and young girls forced into Islamic marriages. Married Christian women having been used as sex slaves passed from one Sunni fighter to the next. That, and millions of both Christian and Muslim refugees starving in UN camps.
Reality check: The Islamic fighters whom we are arming, training, and paying a monthly salary hate every aspect of America’s secular society.
Yet, President Obama and his pals in the Senate, such as John McCain and Lindsey Graham, have the absurd belief that Sunni Muslim fighters they arm and train are actually going to carry out the will of a gay-loving, dope-smoking, alcohol-consuming, over-eating, feminist-dominated secular nation such as the United States, which they view as the great Satan!
