Posted on 09/04/2013 2:50:13 PM PDT by BarnacleCenturion
Secretary of State John Kerry said at Wednesdays hearing that Arab counties have offered to pay for the entirety of unseating President Bashar al-Assad if the United States took the lead militarily.
With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes, Kerry said. They have. That offer is on the table.
Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

How does the US military feel about being the Arabs mercenaries?
I don’t like it.
In fact, if the Arabs want to pay they can damn well fight themselves.
Our blood isn’t for sale.
I could support an invasion if we are going to turn the country into a Christian nation, ban Islam and make it a territory of the United States.
Join the Army, see the world through the eyes of a mercenary.
Another level of humiliation added to obamas transformation of America.....our US military can now be considered mercenaries.
Most of the Arab countries do not support this. Who is he talking about? And since when is our military a mercenary force?
And I’m sure those arab countries are just delighted as pie that John F’n Kerry told the world what they offered. I’m sure it won’t be too hard for whoever is supporting Assad to figure out who these nations are and put the heat on them.
“Secretary of State John Kerry”
That man has been Satan’s toe jam since he lied about our troops in the the Viet Nam war.
There is a state that I won’t bother to name that must lead the world in people with their heads up their ass to have elected this moron and the fat coward Kennedy as many times as they did!
So now the USA is a PAID BULLY!!!
Makes me SICK to hear.see how dumb people in “Washington City” are!!!
Is war with Syria really about chemical warfare? (”No Blood For Gas!”)
Time for some generals to resign - - and to speak out pubicly against this abomination, loudly and forcefully.
Sooooo! Our troops would become mercenaries?? Maybe Assad will pay us more to fight for Syria. Lets do some horse trading here and see how much we can get out this - maybe pay down the national debt. Whoooeee!
John Kerry isn’t even a moderately good LIAR.
Where he sits, he better work on his skills because he is surrounded by exceptionally good liars and they are making him look bad.
Will they replace the lives of those killed in battle also?
Kerry needs lying lessons from Collin Powell.
What “Arab” countries? Names and Leaders.
We should be getting tribute from them now. Without us they would already be dead and gone. Saddam and Iran would have divided them up.
The idea of sending our soldiers,sailors and airmen off to fight as mercenaries has got to be one of the most evil things that I have ever heard coming out of a CommieRedLiberalRAT ever. We should never forget who said it and why.
They would sacrifice our people to save the reputation of a failed President on the pretext that we were being paid to do it.
Anyone who votes for this war should be strapped to one of the missiles.
