House resolution to fund Syrian rebels: pure unadulterated madness

The Obama administration and indeed now Congress are apparently dead set on “arming” Syrian rebels to fight against ISIS. These are the same folks to which the president referred to as doctors, farmers, and pharmacists and said any endeavor to arm them was a “fantasy.” Well, looks like that fantasy is about to come true.

As reported by USA Today, “The U.S. House is preparing a resolution to authorize President Obama’s plan to arm and train Syrian rebels to fight the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The language, drafted by the House Armed Services Committee and unveiled Monday evening, is on track for a Wednesday vote to add it to a stop-gap funding bill to keep the government open until early December. While the amendment is likely to draw opposition from both GOP and Democratic corners, it is likely to ultimately pass with bipartisan support.”

If you’re wondering how I would vote on the resolution in committee and on the House floor — it would be a resounding nay! And I would be as vocal in speaking out against this resolution as I am right now.

Imagine the disrespect to our men and women in uniform who have recently received “pink slips” essentially firing them from service to our country — some of them are in combat zones receiving this notification.

So now we’re going to expend resources to hire — outsource — individuals without a thorough vetting to fight the enemy of America, ISIS? If we cannot afford to pay our own, why should we be paying and using taxpayer funds for these shadow figures?

Members of Congress are about to sign off on $500 million of American taxpayer dollars while we refuse to take care of our own military — that ladies and gents makes no doggone sense.

Now, I understand the Special Forces mission of Foreign Internal Defense (FID) and fully support that — as we did working with the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan. However, the U.S. history of arming one group of jihadis to fight is not that great.

We did so in Afghanistan supporting the Mujahideen against the Soviets and that gave way to what became the Taliban and ultimately al-Qaida. We should never forget that it was Osama bin Laden who fought with the Mujahids.

If you want recent history, just look at Libya where we armed and supported Islamists forces to overthrow Qaddafy — and what has been the result? We had an American Special Mission Compound (SMC) attacked, four dead Americans (to include an Ambassador), and the evacuation of our embassy.

We hear the U.S. will monitor the Syrian rebels to ensure our weapons don’t fall into the wrong hands — we did a crappy job of that in Libya. Furthermore, there have been instances of these Syrian rebels teaming up with al-Qaida offshoots, like Jabhat al-Nusra who attacked UN peacekeepers.

USA Today says “the House resolution makes clear that it does not authorize sending U.S. ground troops to fight the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. It puts requirements on the Pentagon to report back to Congress 15 days before the mission begins. Those restraints are necessary for winning congressional support from lawmakers wary of continued U.S. involvement in the Middle East.”

So here we now have our U.S. House of Representatives, the House Armed Services Committee, drafting a resolution stating how we’re not going to fight a combat operation? This is pure unadulterated madness and why I have absolutely no confidence in this decision to fund Syrian rebels.

We are looking at arming “moderates” who are fighting against a dictator to fight against “extremists” while we sit back at 30,000 ft and just hope? Why aren’t we allowing the U.S. military to plan an operation that advances the defeat of ISIS — not about holding terrain, just killing the enemy? We look completely dysfunctional as a nation.

Even more disconcerting is that the action on the amendment and the underlying funding bill are likely to be the last major acts of Congress before they adjourn for the final stretch ahead of the midterm elections. So our elected representatives will pass some mess and then run home and ask for your vote?

I will not support any Member of the U.S. House who supports this resolution. This is a horrible response and if this is the future of U.S. national security, let’s just dissolve our U.S. military and outsource our security – that’s what Rome ended up doing as it glided towards its demise. We have an enemy, ISIS, who has declared war against us and beheaded our citizens and we want to trust someone else to fight for us.

At a time of global crisis this is the answer? Pass a terrible resolution and go home? Can this actually be the best that America can do? Obama didn’t present a viable strategy — this is just a matter of kicking the can down the road — but hey, here’s your blank check for $500 million.

This is a sad day for our Republic and demonstrates how completely we are being neutered. Yes, we do need to commit our American ground combat troops and give them a strategy and a plan for victory. Politics has no place in guiding our national security, but that’s what is happening. To hear anyone say there is no military solution to fight a savage and barbaric enemy is the verbiage of surrender.

We are about to send our U.S. military to fight against Ebola, but we can’t put troops on the ground to fight a declared enemy? USA Today reports that “President Obama is launching an expanded, $763 million military-led plan to help West Africa nations fight the spread of the Ebola virus and prevent it from reaching the United States, officials said Tuesday. Some 3,000 U.S. military personnel will be deployed to West Africa to lead the project, officials said, and Obama issued the order to the Pentagon on Tuesday. The project calls for more doctors and health care professionals; more portable hospitals, laboratories, and other medical facilities; and increased training for first responders and other medical officials throughout West Africa. “Responding to the Ebola outbreak is a top national security priority,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.”

Silly me, I thought ISIS was a top national security priority, not a virus. We are so upside down.

“Here’s a blank check for $500 million”

Sums up the intellectual prowess of this author (a man discharged from the military as being a tad crazy) quite nicely.

Col. West was one of the first crucial people who’s career fell victim to the gutless, godless pc crowd. They took his fighting position but they couldn’t take his fighting spirit, and that’s the part that really eats at anti-Americans like you.

Earl, you’re a disgrace to American society. You and your limp-wristed, anti-American ilk are everything that’s wrong with this country.

Our Troops have been betrayed by our treasonous government- tying both hands behind their backs with their rules of engagement while fighting savages! People like you need to be sent to Iraq and face ISIS. YOU would pee your pants I’m sure!

We’ve long passed the point of No Returns in the Middle East. By that I mean investment in the region now is not going to generate any security returns for this country in the future and will most likely destabilize the area all the more.

Obama surrendered the initiative and the opportunity to positively influence the rump nations of this region when he prematurely pulled the troops out in 2011 in order to support his re-election. The situation is beyond rescue now and this half ass approach is no approach at all.

The neocon rats and the democrat pigs are at it again!

ISIS is just an excuse to arm the other Syrian “rebels” so they can take down SECULAR Assad and replace him with more Islamist maniacs, just like in Libya! EVERY single intervention in the Middle East has led to the spread of MORE and MORE Jihadists and Islamists, going all the way back to the Iranian revolution, and, before that, the establishment of Saudi Arabia with the support of the West.

These big government fascists will never stop!

You cannot get a Republican in office in ’16. Republicans have done NOTHING but push people away from the part since the disaster called MITT! There is not enough of you LOONS out there to elect a president. You can’t win the white house with the WHITE ONLY VOTE in this age…you need the black vote or a good portion of the hispanic vote and republicans won’t get EITHER!!
I know your response will be…”THEY ONLY VOTE FOR HANDOUTS” Welp….you keep believing that and we will keep winning the WHITE HOUSE!

Earl, Then the blacks and the hispanics are the loons because we have a **Islamo-Fascist’ in the white house and you are all too ‘stupid’ to recognize it! Actions speak louder than words…he is protecting the Muslims at every turn.so we will ALL be facing the enemy together in our own back yard!

Eliott

If you are correct about us not getting the White House in ’16’, this country will be even closer to destruction. If you can honestly say this country is better now then when Obama took office, you are either a idiot or an ideologue. The Republicans will never get the majority of the black vote because traditionally they have always voted Democrat even though the Dems have not done anything for them except keeping them dependent on the government.

Oh give me a break Earl! Your half black president doesn’t care anything about you or your family. I sort of feel sorry for your lack of education, besides that I do not see color and there are some very nice intelligent black people, for example, Allen West. The problem is Obama was the worse half black man anyone could have chosen, but he sure is a hell of a salesman and will tell you anything to get what he wants. He lies so much I think he is beginning to believe his own lies.

Once again the facts don’t support your argument! Had nothing to do with voters from across the border..NO EVIDENCE…nothing to do with voter fraud…NO EVIDENCE.

He certainly wouldn’t complain about the Muslim’s, he’s one himself & has a bunch of them in his admin. Check out infiltratednation.com over on the right side of the page, you can find an article with a picture of six of them, add to that John Brennan the head of the CIA is a convert to Islam and then you also have Obama who’s father was a sunni Muslim so all of his relatives. Oh, I forgot, Valerie Jarrett, his top advisor is a Muslim, born in Iran who is also a third generation communist!

REMEMBER: For many months Obama has been giving the Syrian Rebels millions of the American tax dollars for supporting the Syrian Rebels. Remember, last spring Obama wanted to use our military to help the Syrian Rebels overthrow the Syrian Government so they could put an Islamic Sharia Government in place like they did with the Arab Government, was true. Congress wouldn’t let him do it, and Obama was very upset about that. Now he is using the ISIS.ISIL to accomplish what he wasn’t allowed to do last spring. Yet, they still don’t like him.

The only way to beat ISIS is boots on the ground but the Democrats and their media machines demonised the combat mission in Iraq to such an extent they can now get away with outsourcing America’s security to people, as you rightly point out, who can’t be adequately vetted as friends or foes.
Avoiding these wars in such a way will inevitably lead to America being dragged into the big war down the road.
