On Sept. 10, President Obama delivered his speech to the nation on his thoughts on the Syria problem. His speech was contradictory, confused, and, well here is a “shorter Obama” version of what he said: “We’ll strike, but we won’t, our threats are enough, but they aren’t, our strike will be small but big and powerful, IT’S FOR THE CHILDREN!!!”
Of course, President Obama is all upset that the Syria rebels–many of whom are al Qaeda terrorists–are being attacked by Syria’s dictator, Bashar al-Assad, and he’s touted his famed “red line” that will cause him to consider US military intervention in the civil war. But Obama and his crew have not mentioned one thing about any “red line” for the beheadings, rapes, murders and oppressions of Syria’s minority Christians by the very rebels he claims to want to support.
Who would have thought that 11 years after the attacks on 9/11 our own president would be supporting al Qaeda?
The Modern Tokyo Times has a very revealing article revealing how Syria’s Christians–who were living in the region before Islam was invented–are systematically ignored by President Obama and his administration even as these believers are increasingly being murdered by the very people Obama is supporting.
The article accuses Obama of having no “read line” when it comes to the crimes against humanity being perpetrated by his Syrian rebels and their al Qaeda allies.
The writers say that Obama doesn’t, “have any red lines for cleansing Christians, killing Alawites, children being killed for blasphemy, raping women, slaughtering the Shia, beheading civilians, killing Syrian women who refuse to marry jihadists and so forth. Indeed, the so-called opposition can even kidnap Christian bishops and kill Christian priests because nothing stops America, France and the United Kingdom from providing propaganda for the FSA and various al-Qaeda forces.”
The piece goes on to say,
Why no red lines for various terrorist, sectarian and mercenary forces in Syria when it comes to America, France and the United Kingdom? At no point did the three above countries put pressure on Gulf nations and Turkey for assisting brutal anti-Syrian forces. In other words, cleansing Alawites, Christians and the Shia is fine and the same applies to destroying Christian churches and mosques. Therefore, the gang rape of Christian women, videos of killing children deemed apostates and other barbaric massacres all fall under any red line. What does this say for the morality of political leaders who openly support the bombing of Syria?
And Obama is essentially giving his blessing to these actions by having “no red line.”
Images of the FSA and al-Qaeda affiliates teaching children to behead Syrian soldiers and partaking in murdering pro-government civilians aren’t deemed to be red lines. Cleansing Alawites, the Shia and Christians also isn’t deemed to be a red line. Likewise, car bombings, beheading anyone deemed pro-government and killing children on video also appears to be acceptable. Indeed, even when the UN pointed the finger at anti-Syrian government forces for using chemical weapons this also wasn’t deemed to be a red line.
The piece concludes its damning indictment of Obama with this:
In other words, any barbarity committed by various al-Qaeda affiliates, the FSA and other terrorist groups in Syria is either welcomed, swept under the carpet or it means the same forces will obtain more funding and training from the enemies of this country. All in all, so-called opposition forces can gang rape Christian girls, use chemicals, behead people, cut open Syrian soldiers, murder Alawites, kill pro-Sunni Muslim clerics, kidnap Christian bishops and other brutal realities. After all, the red line only applies to the side which is protecting minorities therefore Gulf petrodollars can openly support barbarity – while NATO Turkey is a conduit for military arms and international jihadists.
Obama has picked his side. He sides with murderous, Islamist radicals and members of al Qaeda.
