    Is Obama arming both sides ?

    Washington (CNN) -- Reluctant approval from Congress for providing military support to Syrian rebels allows the Obama administration to move forward with plans first announced almost six weeks ago.

    White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Tuesday that the goal of the military aid expected to include small arms, ammunition and perhaps anti-tank weapons is to keep the Syrian opposition going against forces aligned with President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

    Noting al-Assad's forces have been helped by Hezbollah in Lebanon as well as Iran, Carney said Syrian rebels need the help of the United States and allied nations to withstand an increased assault.

    "The aid is intended to help the opposition resist Assad and eventually prevail," Carney said, adding that any resolution of Syria's civil war will require a political transition.

    His comment appeared intended to soften any expectations that the rebels could topple the regime by military means alone.

    I believe in American’s right to bear arms … the fact is, the vast majority of gun owners are responsible … but I am also betting that a vast majority of gun owners agree that we should keep a small few from owning a high-capacity weapon of war.

    - President Barack Obama

    We already do keep criminals from buying legal guns.

    Illegals gun sales are not impacted by laws banning guns from lawful gun owners!

    Obama is doing what past presidents have done. He's arming the Al Qeada led rebels in another country that Israel wants us to attack. Just like in Libya, Afghanistan, etc etc....

    Israel controls the most powerful country on Earth?

    That, like the rest of your copy/pasted notions, is completely ret@rded.




    No money, the need for resources and the drive for more power controls the most powerful country on earth.

    "For some reason, they've decided to leave me out of the worldwide Jewish conspiracy," said Nussbaum, a 34-year-old computer programmer. "And I can't say it doesn't hurt."

    As a conservative who have been completely left out of the "vast Republican conspiracy" I feel his pain.
