Al-Qaeda Syrian Rebels To Receive Air Defense Aid From Obama Administration

In a stunning move that defies all logic, the Obama Administration is preparing to give Al-Qaeda Syrian rebels air defense aid. While shocking in its idiocy, it shouldn't surprise Americans, considering that President Obama openly funds terrorists in the Middle East. Giving aid to our sworn enemy, Al-Qaeda, has been his open and unabashed mission since 2012, and possibly earlier. With the Al-Qaeda splinter group, Islamic State of in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), heavily involved in Syria and the region, the disarray becomes more evident. The enemy is mighty and powerful. The enemy is Al-Qaeda Syrian rebels and any other group joining their cause. Obama not only gave them weapons, which were used to terrorize and kill Christians, but now he is giving them air defense. The treacherous, traitor President Obama is the enemy combatant.

This move, to arm the rebels has been strongly supported by the Saudis, who perceived Obama as being "soft" in his stance in Syria and the Middle East. What is the one thing the Al-Qaeda Syrian rebels are missing in their arsenal of death? Air defense. There is nothing that could be more catastrophic for a region in absolute chaos than a strong air defense system. With the Syrian civil war spilling over into Israel, the announcement of providing air defense to the rebels could not be more disturbing. ABC news reports:

President Barack Obama is considering allowing shipments of new air defense systems to the Syrian opposition, a U.S. official said Friday, as Obama sought to reassure Saudi Arabia's king that the U.S. is not taking too soft a stance in Syria and other Mideast conflicts.

A key U.S. ally, Saudi Arabia would be likely to cheer a decision by Obama to allow the portable missile launchers into Syria. Saudi officials were dismayed when Obama scrapped plans last year to launch a strike against Syrian President Bashar Assad, and they have been pressing the White House on the issue. The Saudis could play a direct role in sending the systems, known as "manpads," to the rebels fighting Assad's forces.

Manpads are compact missile launchers with the range and explosive power to attack low-flying planes and helicopters. Assad's forces are known to have them, and some have been brought into Syria by rebels and their sympathizers.

The Saudis have held off providing them in the past because of U.S. opposition.

rebelsThe mere thought of Al-Qaeda Syrian rebels having access to portable missile launchers is more terrifying than any possible scenario, aside from them gaining access to a nuclear weapon. The American Muslim Brotherhood in chief is outwardly operating in favor of the enemy, giving them weapons that could lead to an all out regional and world war. The tipping point is already there. He is arming America's sworn enemy to the teeth, ensuring that Israel will be in the gravest of danger, and Christians will be slaughtered. Obama is ordering genocide, with his pen and his phone.

Word of Obama's potential shift came as Obama was paying a visit to Saudi King Abdullah's desert oasis at the conclusion of a weeklong, four-country trip. The aging monarch has been nervously watching Washington's negotiations with Iran and other U.S. policy developments in the Middle East.

Despite its decades-long alliance with the United States, Saudi's royal family has become increasingly anxious in recent years over Obama's nuclear talks with Iran and his tepid involvement in the Syrian civil war. Allowing manpads to be delivered to Syrian rebels would mark a shift in strategy for the U.S., which until this point has limited its lethal assistance to small weapons and ammunition, as well as humanitarian aid. The U.S. has been grappling for ways to boost the rebels, who have lost ground in recent months, allowing Assad to regain a tighter grip on the war-weary nation.

As recently as February, the administration insisted Obama remained opposed to any shipments of manpads to the Syrian opposition. The U.S. has been concerned that the weaponry could fall into the wrong hands and possibly be used to shoot down a commercial airliner.

As for Saudi Arabia, White House officials and Mideast experts say the royal family's main concern is Iran. The Saudis fear Iran's nuclear program, object to Iran's backing of the Assad government in Syria and see the government of Tehran as having designs on oilfields in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters aboard Air Force One on the flight to Saudi Arabia that the issues at the heart of Obama's meetings with Abdullah would include Gulf security, Middle East peace, Iran and Egypt.

"Those concerns remain constant and we're not in any way negotiating those issues in the nuclear talks," he said.

President Obama is knowingly and willingly sending the Middle East and the rest of the world into a death spiral. Iran will assuredly get their nuclear weapon, in spite of Obama's pleas of opposition. Al-Qaeda's Syrian rebels will get their manpads, their portable missile launchers, and will successfully take out every conceivable "infidel" in the process. They could shoot down a commercial jet liner, or obliterate anything they so choose. The potential ramifications are to horrifying to fathom.

Evil thy name is President Barack Hussein Obama, an avowed enemy combatant, who let it slip that he fears a nuclear blast in Manhattan more than Russia. Does he know something we don't know? Sadly, the answer is yes. He is working steadily to destroy the United States, piece by fragile piece.
