McCain and Obama Administration pledge support for Al-Qaeda Terrorists

In preparation for plunging the US into another bloody and senseless war overseas, Sen. John McCain visited with Syrian “rebels” last month to pledge support in their campaign to overthrow the democratically elected government of Syria. For over 2 years, the “Free Syrian Army”, a disparate collection of Al-Qaeda linked jihadists and a handful of deserters from the Syrian Army, have waged an unremitting war of terrorist violence against the Syrian civilian population, sending out waves of suicide bombers and car bombs in Damascus and surrounding areas, as well as more conventional urban battles with the Syrian army. By far the most horrific attacks by the FSA were in Alleppo, where the jihadists used chemical weapons in their attack on March 19th.

The US has been supporting the attempt to overthrow the Syrian government since the beginning of the conflict, as the US has imposed economic sanctions on the Syrian state since 1975. Last year, the New York times revealed that the CIA had been funneling weapons to the opposition, despite a prior EU arms ban to either side in the region. The Obama Administration has openly supplied the “rebels” with over $250 Million in cash, as well as bringing in supplies, armored troop transports, and other “non-military” aid in the past two years.  Now that the EU has lifted its arm embargo on the conflict, the US and its European NATO allies are planning to openly send weapons and air support to the Syrian Al-Qaeda forces.
By forcing the collapse of the Syrian government, the US will be able to deprive Iran of one of its strategic allies, and a destabilized region would allow US corporate industries to exploit the country’s resources without local government opposition. Syria is a major oil producer in the region, and according to the Oil and Gas Journal, Syria had 2,500,000,000 barrels of petroleum reserves as of January 2010.
