Following senile, neo-con John McCain's lead, Obama requested $500 Million in taxpayer money and advanced weaponry be given to some rag-tag bands of so-called "moderate" Syrian rebels to help them destabilize Bashar al-Assad's regime there. (You may remember that it was McCain who visited with the rebels in Syria last year, gleefully having his picture taken with them, only to find out they were Taliban and he'd been punked.)
Have we not learned our lesson in Iraq? The very people we intended to fight now have some of the most advanced weaponry and hardware in the world, certainly to be used against us at their earliest convenience. And the same thing will happen in Syria.
We arm these morons in camouflage fishing vests doing calisthenics today, and tomorrow they join ISIS or Al-Qaeda and kill a bunch of Americans with those weapons. Obama wants to appear as if he's doing something, but it's sheer stupidity.....pointless, meaningless, pro-forma stupidity!
