Obama planning more money, weapons to Syrian jihadists

via U.S. finalizing plan to boost support for Syrian rebels: sources | Reuters.

The U.S. government is finalizing a plan to increase training and small-arms shipments for Syrian rebels, two U.S. security sources said on Friday, as Syrian government troops gain momentum following the collapse of U.S.-backed peace talks.

More non-lethal small-arms aid.

The United States would increase assistance and send the shipments to moderate rebel factions mostly based in Jordan, along Syria’s southern border, the officials familiar with the plan told Reuters.

The additional supplies are likely to be modest and will not include surface-to-air missiles, the officials said, raising questions over the impact in a civil war that has killed an estimated 136,000 people, produced nine million refugees and threatens to destabilize the region.

If they are specifically saying they won’t send surface-to-air missiles they probably will or are doing so already. (see video below)

Rebels have urged the Obama administration to provide advanced weapons including surface-to-air missiles and exert greater military pressure on Russia-backed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who has intensified bombings of rebel neighborhoods in recent month.

But the United States fears supplies of advanced weapons to pro-Western rebels could be diverted to Islamic militant groups, who could use them to attack allied, Israeli or civilian aircraft, the U.S. officials said, explaining why the surface-to-air missiles won’t be included in the assistance.

President Barack Obama has resisted becoming entangled in Syria’s complex, two-year civil war, but has faced criticism for failing to take a tougher stand given the immensity of the humanitarian crisis.

He’s wasted more than $1 billion of U.S. taxpayer dollars as well as funding and training jihadists – we’re already entangled.

The assistance does not require additional funding from Congress, said the officials, who declined to be identified because they are not authorized to speak with the media.

National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden declined to comment.

  1. Perhyaps we should just send Obumma to Syria so that he can use his expertise in directing the ant-Syrian forces. He can use this expertise to overload Syria with lies and bull s**t.

  2. HEY COWARD BOEHNER WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO STOP BOZO FROM FINANCING THE JIHADI’S AROUND THE WORLD! PUTTING IT BLUNTLY, GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS AND FOR ONCE DO SOMETHING RIGHT FOR AMERICA! THIS IS OUTRAGOUS AT ITS BEST!

  3. What else can we expect? Obama is in the side of the jihadist, those that kill Christians, and beheads a Christian Bishop, he is one of them for sure.

  4. abu obama MUST HELP HIS MUSLIM BROTHERS ALL THAT HE CAN! THEY PUT HIM IN OFFICE JUST TO DO THAT! OBAMA IS ONE OF THEIR VERY OWN AFTER ALL!

  5. he is gthe anti Christ

  6. The absurdity of the semantic games being played on this issue pisses me off to the max. Islam is not moderate. There are no moderate Muslims. Islam is global conquest. Islamic doctrine is the driving force behind terrorism.

    Both sides are Muslims. Both sides celebrated the accursed events of September 11, 2001. Both sides are inimical to us. Every thing we give any of them will eventually come back to hurt us.

    If we aid anyone, it should be the persecuted Christian minority.

    Providing aid and comfort to the enemy is treason.

  7. There is no difference between California’s Lee and obama with his arm’s deal. Both need to be put in the prison system for arming thugs who are killing for islam’s allah-thing.

  8. Can’t someone stop this worst of all Presidents, worse even than ‘peanut Jimmy’, and infinitely more dangerous since he (openly) supports the enemy.
