…that Obama was so against when he was running for office. I thought he was going to end all wars and bring home the troops? Iraq was pretty much over when he took office, all he did was accelerate the process by a couple months to make himself look good.

Now we are sending “secret” aid to the Syrian rebels. What’s next?

Since Obama has taken office, the Middle East has become more and more unstable. What gives? Is this another prelude to war for America? Is this Obama trying to score points for his foreign policy? Either way, we’re paying for it.

Personally, I couldn’t care less if the Middle East burns to the ground.

When it’s all said and done, it will be another Islamist state that will likely be unstable and cause more problems than the one run by Assad.

Obama authorizes secret U.S. support for Syrian rebels

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama has signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for rebels seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government, U.S. sources familiar with the matter said.

Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the rebels oust Assad.

This and other developments signal a shift toward growing, albeit still circumscribed, support for Assad’s armed opponents – a shift that intensified following last month’s failure of the U.N. Security Council to agree on tougher sanctions against the Damascus government.
