Obama and The U.S. government want to increase aid to the “moderate Syrian rebels”. Remember them?


This article was published quite a while ago. The Arabic script reads, “and we will continue to crush their strongholds.” It was posted on the Facebook page of Al Aqsa Brigade. Al Aqsa was a part of the “moderate” Free Syrian Army.

Some people are suggesting the US government give the Syrian rebels even more weapons. ISIS is already using the US made weapons we sent to Iraq. DO WE REALLY WANT TO SEND THEM MORE WEAPONS? US taxpayers are paying for all of this. Will our government EVER use our money for the good of the American people?

“Supporting Syrian moderates will undermine the militants in their heartland,” says this man from the Rafik Hariri Center For the Middle East.

That’s INSANE! Supporting Syrian moderates is what got us here in the first place. ISIS didn’t exist in Syria before the war. Just like it didn’t exist in Iraq before we invaded them. Without continued aid to the “rebels,” the war will quickly end as the Syrian government secures the country. The Syrian people just overwhelmingly re-elected their president. They had over 70% voter turnout. The Syrian people have the right to choose their own leader. Our government should stop spending our money providing weapons to the Syrian rebels.

About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a yoga and fitness instructor and personal trainer. And I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. My life is defined by my family, and right now, that means chronic worry and fear. Thank God for my faith and the support of my family and friends. I started this blog to talk about all sorts of things, but now I focus on Syria. Until this war is over, I, like all Syrians with a love for their country and their families, am a prisoner of this war, waiting to see what will be left after the dust settles. I pray for the safety of my family and for my country to survive and repair itself in the future. God willing.
