So I guess we’re back to admitting it’s all about regime change. And they’re still doing it with our money.


It’s still our money, and they’re still spending it to provide weapons to foreign fighters to create regime change Syria:

“U.S. officials said after the meeting that the administration was willing to increase the level of assistance it supplies to Syrian rebels, a main request of the Saudis, who have place a high priority on ousting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The path for more assistance was smoothed by closer agreement on which more moderate elements of the opposition alliance should receive it, senior U.S. officials said.

“The more confidence we can have in different groups, the more and better assistance we can provide to those groups,” a senior administration official said after the meeting.

“We feel like we’re in a stronger place as a collective group in support of the Syrian opposition today than we were several months ago,” a senior administration official said.

“It’s not just about the amount and types of assistance but about strengthening the right groups and being most effective about it,” the official added. “What we’re trying to do is agree on who we are trying to help; who we’re not trying to help.” – WSJ

Sadly, while the U.S. and Saudi governments are only too happy to destroy a sovereign nation that grants full, equal rights to women, they completely ignore the total lack of women’s rights in Saudi Arabia:

“The two leaders appeared to have avoided one subject that also has been a sore one: human rights in the Saudi kingdom, which didn’t appear to be a topic in the conversation.

“We did not really expect them to say anything and they lived up to our expectation,” said Hala al Dosari, a Riyadh woman who is a prominent advocate of increased rights for women in Saudi Arabia.

American leaders with regard to Saudi Arabia often are more concerned with “economic ties, which are more important in their view” than rights issues, Ms. al Dosari said.

Currently, with the Obama administration, “they see the relationship” with the kingdom “in a very strained state, and they don’t want to add more.”

Women here are required to have a male guardian throughout their life and are banned from driving, among other restrictions.” – WSJ

The article, published in the Wall Street Journal, was written after President Obama travelled to meet with King Abdullah, of Saudi Arabia.

IT’S STILL OUR MONEY. OUR TAX DOLLARS. AND THEY’RE USING IT TO BUY WEAPONS FOR FOREIGN FIGHTERS TO CREATE REGIME CHANGE IN A SOVEREIGN NATION.

AND OUR MONEY IS BEING SPENT ON KILLING MILLIONS OF INNOCENT PEOPLE.

It’s true and it’s happening, whether or not it’s published on the front page of the paper.

And they’re doing it with our money.

About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. I am a also a yoga teacher and freelance writer. I recently described myself in a job pitch as "a person who's lived in Portland, Oregon for over 20 years with a passion for writing and a passion for all things Portland. I'm a foodie, knitter, wine and beer lover, bee-keeper (yep, I said it), mead and fruit-liqueur maker, organic gardener, home-canner, hiker, biker, runner, and occasional skinny-dipper. I’ve camped all over the state, I sail a sailboat that’s moored on the Columbia (o.k., I'm the first mate), and I spend a large percentage of my time at our beach house in Seaside." That about sums it up.
