Kerry: We Have to Send Terrorists Into Syria to Make Sure that Chemical Weapons Don’t Fall Into the Hands of Terrorists

From the Makes-No-Sense Department

Huffington Post reports:

In the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing over proposed U.S. intervention in Syria’s civil war, Kerry pointed to the possibility that a cache of chemical weapons could fall into the hands of a terrorist group to make the case for military action.

Sounds reasonable….

But as the New York Times, (and here and here) , Wall Street Journal, USA TodayCNN, McClatchy (and here), AP, Time, Reuters, BBC, the Independent, the Telegraph, Agence France-PresseAsia Times, and the Star (and here) confirm,  supporting the rebels means supporting Al Qaeda and two other terrorist groups. Indeed, the the New York Times has reported that virtually all of the rebel fighters are Al Qaeda terrorists.

These terrorists – who we’ve been supporting supporting for many years – already have access to chemical weapons.

And the United Nations, Haaretz, and Turkish state newspaper Zaman - say that they’ve grabbed them and used them.

Polls show that Americans are opposed to bombing Syria, and even more opposed to arming the rebels.  The Washington post reports today:

Nearly six in 10 oppose missile strikes [even after] the U.S. government’s determination that Syria used chemical weapons against its own people.

***

The public expresses even wider opposition to arming Syrian rebels, which President Obama authorized in June. Fully seven in 10 oppose arming rebels, including large majorities of Democrats, Republicans and independents.

But the U.S. is now stepping up its support for the Islamic extremists.

As the experience with Libya shows, that will only destabilize the chemical weapons situation.

    Al Qaeda has been working for the US government since the ’80s. It was only after 9/11 that they filled the role of Emanuel Goldstein. I can’t begin to imagine how fucking stupid we are going to look in 100 years.

    Al CIA-DUH, known as al qaeda in Arabic was a creation of MOSSAD who passed the use of the name (but probably not the personnel) off to the CIA decades ago. al qaeda has ALWAYS been a CIA asset since that hand-off. The former prez of Iran spoke truthfully when he stated al qaeda had nothing to do with 9/11. The evidence on 9/11 points squarely at Israhell with complicity of our “elected” officials. I put “elected” in quotes because we only THINK we vote for presidents and senators and such. In reality, they are selected for us. THE BEST we got is a choice between Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-DUMB and we usually end up with Tweedle-DUMB (Biden? Bush? Obama? dumber than a box of rocks).
    Now that people are catching on about al qaeda, they create “The Muslim Brotherhood.” Same deal as al qaeda. The Muslim Brotherhood is the NEW and IMPROVED BOOGEYMAN to frighten us into doing stupid things, like giving up rights and liberties and going to fight yet another war for ISRAHELL another war that will steal our children and our wealth and create still more enemies for us while further enriching the zionist war-mongers.
    want an idea how EVIL these people area? Look up how in the 40s and 50s the Ashkenazi jews (zionists, rulers in Israhell) stole sephardic children and performed gruesome medical experiments on them, including irradiating (to the head) thousands of them with doses thousands of time the legal limit of 5 REM (lifetime dose). They kept this hushed up until the 90s when it made the news elsewhere, but NOT in the USA

    This is in line with Kerry’s former statement on the Iraq War, I was against it before I was for it!

  • poorhardworker

    The government is “selling war” based on their determination that Assad used the gas. I want to see their evidence…because here is the other side of the coin: http://www.infowars.com/video-syrian-rebel-admits-using-chemical-weapons/. So who’s side are we on??? Why are the other nations and the UN not flocking to our side? Why did Britain’s Parliament vote are resounding “NO”? STAY OUT OF SYRIA!
