There are many days–pretty much all days–when I wish we could trade Barack Obama to Canada for Stephen Harper, the Canadian Prime Minister who has major cojones in a good way. And we should probably change the lyrics from “Blame Canada” to “Blame Obama.” Yesterday, Barack Obama formally recognized the group of savage terrorists known as the “Free Syrian Army” a/k/a the Syrian National Coalition a/k/a Syrian Opposition Coalition. There is nothing “free” about them, other than that they freely torture and take the lives of their fellow Muslims on whim. In contrast, Canada, under Harper’s leadership, refused to recognize the FSA because of its savagery and said it won’t recognize the group until it rejects extremism (though we all know that’s just a matter of uttering BS, done every day in the Muslim world).
Whatta Country!: Our Preferred Syrian Islamic Terrorists v. the Assad Syrian Islamic Terrorists
While I’ve been a major critic of Bashir Assad and the Assad regime that’s run Syria via the same torture and murder for decades, the FSA is not just as bad, but probably worse. And handing over Syria to them–which is what will likely happen soon because the U.S. and other Western nations backed the FSA–will further destabilize the Middle East. The only good thing that could happen here is if the Assad/FSA war could go on forever and both sides would lose.
Check out this video below–which I’ll admit is propaganda from the pro-Assad side, but jibes with reports of FSA tortures and murders and it’s too vivid to be phony. I warn you that this is a very graphic video. It is not to be viewed while eating or if you have a weak stomach. And remember, this isn’t just a video of the behavior of America’s favored Syrian Islamic terrorists, the FSA (and the other ever-changing names the group goes by). Nope. It’s not just them. THIS. IS. ISLAM. . . .
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were to the left of even Obama in supporting these animals, attacking Obama in the debates for not aiding these monsters more heavily and earlier (the same absurd position they also took on Egypt and Libya).
This stuff is happening on both sides and we shouldn’t be playing favorites nor should we be involved at all. Let them kill each other. And let allah sort it out. The Shi’ite (Assad is backed by Iran, allied with Hezbollah, and is an Alawite, a mostly-Shia offshoot) versus Sunni (the FSA is the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood band of terrorists) terrorist war is a centuries old conflict in which we have no interest in the winner. They all stink. We already made this mistake when we went into Iraq and handed it from a Sunni dictator to Iranian-backed malefactors. We should have learned our lesson then.
Sadly, that’s not the path we are taking.
Canada told the Syrian opposition Tuesday it must reject extremism and embrace minorities before Ottawa will recognize its legitimacy as a successor to President Bashar Al-Assad, according to a federal official.
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird explained Canada’s preconditions for official recognition at a meeting with representatives of the opposition Syrian National Coalition in Morocco on Tuesday, the official said.
“He outlined the importance of rejecting extremism, the inclusion of minorities, and the importance of the role of women in a post-Assad era,” said the official, who did not want to be named.
Unfortunately, these conditions are not enough and merely demand lip service. There are plenty of women in the Muslim Brotherhood’s ruling thuggery in Egypt. Doesn’t make a difference. The biological inner plumbing ain’t the problem.
