Arming Syrian Rebels – How Does This End?

Arming Syrian Rebels – How Does This End?

In the 80’s we armed the Mujahideen in Afghanistan. It led to al Qaeda & the Taliban.

In the 2000’s, we armed Iraqis and now ISIS is using that very gear against us.

As we consider arming Syrian rebels and a rush back to war, we need you to help this country stop and think: How does this end?

Watch and share this video. And then call your U.S. Senators today to tell them to vote against arming more rebels and starting new wars.

Help others seriously question doing the same, wrong thing all over again.

Thank you for your action.

    When did the U.S. ever stop arming Syrian Rebels?

  • BuzzCoastin

    “During the Persian Gulf war, those intelligence reports would come out: “Iraq: incredible weapons – incredible weapons.” “How do you know that?” “Uh, well … we looked at the receipts. But as soon as that check clears, we’re goin’ in. What time’s the bank open? Eight? We’re going in at nine. We’re going in for God and country and democracy and here’s a fetus and he’s a Hitler. Whatever you fucking need, let’s go. Get motivated behind this, let’s go!”

    Trick question: THIS doesn’t end–YOU do.

      And that’s why there’s reason to hope.

    I have a sneaking feeling that part of the playbook all along was to use ISIS as an excuse to begin strikes into Syria and do it in such a way to force the hand of Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon so that war against them can be justified courtesy of the propaganda chronosphere of CNN.

    It does not end. Perpetual war is the policy of the USA, even if it must arm the enemy to do it.

    War is good for business. Invest your children.

      And there you have it…goddamn :-(

      Ok, *rubs hands* who is for the highly effective strategy of snubbing/protesting “The Troops”???

      No?

      Cue the slimy, hypoctitical, apologists; who secretly want to keep war going, with any specious argument.

      • Virtually Yours

        If you are going to snub the troops, then you also need to protest the tax payers who fund them. We all play our parts, and there is plenty of blame to go around…

        • Mr B

          Correct me if I’m wrong, but tax paying isn’t voluntary.

          Whereas signing up to be an NWO hitman: is.

          • Virtually Yours

            “tax paying isn’t voluntary” Sure it is. There are lots of people who don’t pay their taxes…some of them get away with it and some of them get caught. You run the risk, but it’s still a choice. I am not arguing that we should not pay our taxes, but would prefer to see a comprehensive overhaul of the current tax system which would allow every individual to direct where their money goes (or does not go, as the case may be…)

            Signing up to be a soldier is voluntary, yes, but we also have to take into consideration the indoctrination of “patriotic participation” which practically begins at birth; the hyper-sexualization of “heroism” as promoted by insanely popular games like Call of Duty which brazenly target vulnerable teenagers; and the dire financial circumstances in which a lot of these young men and women find themselves (more often than not, as a direct result of the impoverished backgrounds they grew up in…)

            Yes, technically speaking, they do have options but it probably does not feel that way for most of them, especially when they are being sought out and lied to by cult-like recruiters. They are seduced into joining and, once there, the final stages of brainwashing begin.

          • Mr B

            I like your overhaul idea, but saying that ‘… some of them get caught.’ admits that it’s a legal compulsion.

            There’s positive advertising for almost everything under the sun, but seemingly millions of shrewd people around the world saw through the bogus WMD claims & Vietnam.

            I never see from Westerners, such defences of poverty and brainwashing for The Taliban’s troops.
            Plus, the apologist phrases: “You can be for the troops and against the war” & “love the sinner, hate the sin” similarly never apply to the other side.

            Seldom do I hear veterans complain of economic exploitation nor psychological manipulation. Instead they tend to speak (lifelong) of their proud “service”.

    Alot of younger people don’t know this (it really has been that long, hasn’t it), but this movie is actually a remake.

    SPOILER ALERT: It doesn’t have an ending, it just goes straight into the next remake.

    I saw this image today and found it quite striking…

    “A Syrian man collects vegetables from a vegetable patch at the site where a barrel bomb hit a sewage pipe in the Baedeen neighborhood of Aleppo on Sep. 3, 2014.”

    • Mr B

      So whose side are you on?

    • http://andrewhendricksart.com Number1Framer

      Wow. Thanks for sharing that image. That’s pretty cool.

  • DrDavidKelly

    You making out like they want it to end. Why would they do that? War is profit, war is control. There will be no end.

    Arm more rebels? Brilliant! It’s worked so well in the past, what could possibly go wrong? It’s a proven fact that nothing stabilizes a region more than a few million tons of munitions. Just ask the Mujahideen, the Taliban, Al-Qeada, the Sandinistas, AUC, FNLA, the Contras, CORU, FRAPH, the Revolutionary Guard, Misrata, PDF, FSA, KLA, etc. Too many success stories to even list. Keep up the good work!
