As the Obama administration announced it would begin sending aid in the form of light arms and ammunition to the Syrian opposition via the CIA, Iran has taken the decision to send some 4,000 of its elite Republican Guard fighters to aid the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, the British Independent reported on Sunday. The Iranian deployment, if and when it happens, comes after the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist group sent thousands of its fighters to bolster Assad’s forces. Hezbollah has effectively gone “all in” in support of Assad’s regime.

On the Sunni side, Islamists from across the region have joined the battle against Assad’s Alawite regime, backed as it is by the Shiite Hezbollah, who Sunni clerics have now called “The Party of the Devil,” a play on Hezbollah’s meaning “The Party of God.” The more Islamist-dominated rebel forces are being backed financially and materially by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Up to 3,000 American “advisers” are now believed to be in Jordan, the Independent reports. It’s not known how many advisors Russia has in Syria, but the Russians do have an active port in Tartous, and Russian experts will need to train Syrian officers in the use and maintenance of the S-300 systems. Chechen Islamists fighting against Assad in Syria are reportedly in possession of advanced anti-aircraft weapons; and there are reports of hundreds of European Muslims fighting for the rebels in Syria.
We have no allies or friends within the rebel ranks, but let’s go help — somebody. How about al Qaeda? They are always good for a laugh — didn’t some guy named Ben Ghazi laugh himself to death last year? Small arms, maybe a no-fly zone, troops and support aircraft already in Jordan. So? There’s probably nothing to loose that’s worth having, so let’s go at it. Red Lines and all that. President Obama can’t continue to be disrespected as a weak indecisive pussy, and besides it all about playing leapfrog with Iran, Egypt, Russia and other friendlies. What could possibly go wrong? So let’s have a lovely little war.
Don’t pay attention to that bimbo Sarah Palin.
“Militarily, where is our commander in chief? We’re talking now more new interventions. I say until we know what we’re doing, until we have a commander in chief who knows what he’s doing, well, let these radical Islamic countries who aren’t even respecting basic human rights, where both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line, ‘Allah Akbar,’ I say until we have someone who knows what they’re doing, I say let Allah sort it out,” Palin said at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference.
That’s easy for her to say. What does a mere pretty girl like her know? One so stupid that she thinks she can see Russia from her front porch? Let’s just trust President Obama to do whatever he thinks best
for himselfthe country. Which country? Who knows; maybe he does.
America sending light arms • Russia sending S-300 and MiGs • Iran sending 4,000 elite troops • Chechen Islamists fighting Assad have anti-aircraft missiles • Jordan, Egypt cut off diplomatic relations with Damascus • Israel, U.S. plan for WMD strike.
