Democrat Menendez introduces bill in Senate to arm Syria opposition
Fox News.com ^ | May 6, 2013

Posted on 05/06/2013 7:22:56 PM PDT by Kaslin

A top Senate Democrat nudged the Obama administration to provide weapons to the Syrian opposition, introducing a bill Monday that would explicitly allow the U.S. to provide arms, military training and non-lethal aid to the rebels.

Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, introduced the legislation on the heels of U.S. intelligence claims that chemical weapons likely were used in the country.

"The Assad regime has crossed a red line that forces us to consider all options," Menendez said in a written statement. "The greatest humanitarian crisis in the world is unfolding in and around Syria, and the U.S. must play a role in tipping the scales toward opposition groups and working to build a free Syria."

They are NOT the opposition, they are the Muzzie Bros. and Al Qaeda working on the Caliphate.

More weapons going to the Islamoterrorists. They’ll definitely end up being used against Americans.

Yeah, there really isn’t much difference between Jersey and Syria , at least when it comes the IQ of the electorate.

Why not just give AQ a fixed number of US senators? They already have the President and most of the Democratic Party.

The Roots Of Arabs And Islam.....

11 The angel of the Lord also said to her:
“You are now pregnant
and you will give birth to a son.
You shall name him Ishmael,
for the Lord has heard of your misery.
12 He will be a wild donkey of a man;
his hand will be against everyone
and everyone’s hand against him,
and he will live in hostility
toward all his brothers
.” Genesis 16:11-12

NJ’s Menendez: pro-abortion, ‘gun-control’, deficit spending, etc., etc.
Feck him, his lawless gang and the Shetland ponies they ride.

IF there are elections in 2016, Menendez may be the democrip’s nominee. He is just what they stand for and ‘Hispanic’ to boot. Hispanics will now be exploited just as blacks have been.

Don’t give Obama another war until we’ve sorted out the consequences of his last one! The locals consistently riot that they don’t want us there. Listen to them for a change! There are plenty of muslims with money in the middle east to help. Let guilty libs send their own dollars, and daughters, to the Red Crescent, etc. to help if they want. Meanwhile, Obama says the rebels are nice people so NBC should embed budding reporter Chelsea Clinton with them. Her mom could use the cover.

Yeah, and he tried to put a tricky rider in the bill about Syria opening up their teenage prostitutes to him, very carefully worded.It makes sense that Menendez is squawking loudly about some prominent issue right at this moment, rather than retreating sheepishly into the woodwork. That would make him look guilty, but since predictably, no one is pursuing what looked (laughably, as it turned out)like a big scandal in the making, I guess he feels free to put himself front and center—old politician’s trick.

This corrupt SOB only introduces legislation after he has been paid off. Who got to him? Is it Al Quaeda money?

This is the kind of thing that those good-for-nothing Republicans ought to be able to capitalize on.
There are no “”good guys” in this fight.

We could really gain some mileage with the college age crowd by standing against this.
But like Rand Paul’s filibuster, crazy McCain will step in to make sure we come out looking like the bad guys.
Sometimes I wonder if some of these clowns are being paid by the Democrat party.

UN accuses Syrian rebels of carrying out sarin gas attacks which had been blamed on Assad’s troops
Carla Del Ponte said UN Commission investigating war crimes in Syria has ‘strong, concrete suspicions’ that rebels used chemical weapons
Her remarks contradict statements by the U.S. and UK which said intelligence indicated Syrian soldiers used the weapons

Wasn't it the Democrats in the 80s that supplied the Sandinistas? Not surprising they want to arm the Moslem Brotherhood.
