Posted on 03/25/2013 12:23:13 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
With help from the C.I.A., Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syrias opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders.
The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year, the data shows. It has grown to include more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military-style cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara, and, to a lesser degree, at other Turkish and Jordanian airports.

This is a continuation of what went on in Benghazi. Arming the insurgents, aka Al Qaeda.
Looks like Assad is dead. And now in for the kill of Syria. Look for Iran to be more "visible" and we will negotiate with them? (YGTBSM)
Why can’t we just let islamists kill each other?
Inquiring Americans want to know:
Why did the CIA attack President Bush after 911?
and now continue to help al Qaeda after 911?
When airplanes fall from the sky from US-supplied MANPADs,
will those who transferred the tech to al Qaeda
take responsibility? (answer: No.)
The Saudi’s own Obozo. They educated him, paid to create his conjured history, bought US POLs to enable him, bought much of the media and now we are dancing to put their influence in power in the entire ME.
God Help the U.S.
This is simply an extension of what was going on in Benghazi. It is being directed by none other than the O B_tard himself.
Fixed it for ya.
They both speak Farsi. Both are Commie Traitors. Both owe allegiance to the Muzzies.
Where the heck is Cindy Sheehan and her band of code pink freaks?
Bunch of damn hypocrites.
So now the Obama Administration is helping Syrian rebels? Soon we can add Syria to the lost to Islamic terrorist list: Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Libya, Syria ........
They have turned against Obama for his use of drones, Libya, and Iran.
The media do not give it any coverage.
It has been obvious since long before Benghazi, but that nightmare uncovered the trail to 1600 Penn. Ave.
Wonder why Holder refused to answer about drone attacks on US citizens in peacetime on US soil? And Big Sis refused to answer questions about 1.6 billion rounds of ammo purchased? They could not answer because they were ordered to do so by Obozo. They protect O B_tard and he calls all the shots.
The Syrian Rebellion has almost nothing to do with the Arab Spring.
It is quite simply a proxy war between Shia Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia.
Another added dimension is that Iran need a friendly Syria since it is the only conduit into Lebanon and Hezbollah.
Hezbollah has been sending fighters to assist the Assad regime.
This has the potential of turning from a localized insurrection to a regional general war.
we have no dog there
The Arab Spring I referred to is the illusion that liberation of Muslim countries is possible.
Hezbollah is a surrogate for Iran.
Saudi Arabia is not Sunni is Wahhabi.
They are one of the most intolerant flavors of Islam.
Obama sides with Saudi first, they have been his benefactor.
His affinity to the Muslim Brotherhood caused horrible results everywhere he has had an influence.
Iran wants it all, and they are capable of such brutality that it is almost beyond belief. To their own people. They brought in Hezbollah and other foreign fighters to put down their own people after the mullahs stole the last “election”. (joke? well we had some major fraud too)
Obama is no friend of Freedom. He is a serious threat to the U.S. and to Israel. The question is why there is no one in Congress, the Court, the military or the press to expose his true nature. His past is totally conjured. Every word of his life story is a lie. His action show he serves the father-of-lies.
I have a dog, actually my son’s dog and she is a very sweet Australian Shepherd.
But “we” don’t eat dog, unlike Obozo.
And Russia does.
