Last summer, President Barack Obama warned that the United States would become actively involved in the Syrian Civil War if the Bashir Assad government crossed the "red line" and used chemical weapons. This probably falls under the theory of Obama UN Ambassador nominee Samantha Power "Responsibility to Protect" which embroiled America in the war in Libya.
Al Jazeera reported in late December 2012 that the Assad forces used chemical weapons. But only last week, the Obama Administration confirmed that the Syrian regime crossed the "red line" and used chemical weapons, which justified the US arming the rebel Syrian forces. Aside from the fact that the Syrian rebels are now dominated by Al-Qaeda affiliated forces, who are Mr. Obama's new bosom buddies?
The Blaze shared some video shot which showed a Free Syrian Army rebel commander disembowling an enemy troop and then eating the human heart and liver on video. The only thing this is missing is fava beans and Chianti.
It is amazing to think that former KGB agent Russian President Vladimir Putin could have the moral high ground lecturing America for aligning itself with Syrian cannibals.
While the Bashar Assad regime is a despicable dictatorship, it did not slaughter Christians or pride itself on feasting on the entrails of enemies. Had the United States become involved in the Syrian crisis two years ago, maybe our influence might have influenced democratic forces. Instead, now when we go in to arm rebels with an attitude of the "Responsibility to Protect", we arm Al Qaeda affiliates who lionize cannibal commanders.
Are you Syrian? Really? It might be time to push the reset button on the Obama Foreign Policy reset button. Foggy Bottom is the location of the State Department -- this should not be a description of American foreign policy.
