Obama announced several days ago that part of his strategy to combat ISIS is to once again send firearms, ammunition, and vehicles to the "Anti-Assad rebels", expecting them to go and fight ISIS. Last year during his scandal over his proposal of the US entering the Syrian Civil War, the rebels were discovered to be members of Al Qaeda, months after his administration sent them weapons and vehicles, including Humvees and the export version of the M1A1 Abrams tank. Since then, the "rebels" have allied with the new terror group, ISIS, and have given some of their weapons and vehicles to ISIS, strengthening Islamic State and quickening their pace of expansion across the Middle East.
So what did the House vote on yesterday? Sending more arms to the "rebels". So not only are we once again aiding our enemy, we are growing our newest enemy in the process. Even if the "rebels" weren't Al Qaeda, why would a group fighting Assad's government suddenly decide to fight ISIS? This is either the worst case of incompetence or the worst lying I've ever seen.
Keep in mind that the House is Republican controlled, it just goes to show you, no party is on your side and that no party has you, the everyday citizen, as their focus. They care only for themselves and their political agendas.
And to add to this stupidity, Obama last week said that Islamic State is not Islamic and that military action is not war.
I wish this was satire, I really wish it was.
