When is this country going to stop wasting good money for this crap? we CAN NOT afford it!!
Complete waste of money. Give it to me, I am unemployed, I could use it. And by the way, I am an American, remember us?
Within the past 7 days, we have 25-30 folks in Boston that are missing limbs, and a town in Texas that is missing half of it's town. But we are going to give $130M to Syria. Every day, I remind myself, "If I were King..."
What are the chances any of this non-lethal military aid ends up purchasing lethal military equipment that in 20 years will be used to kill Americans? Sad how history seems to repeat itself, can anyone say Iran-contra or does anyone even remember it. Reagan, Oliver North can now be uttered in the same sentence as Obama, Hagel or McCain when it comes to short sighted foreign policy. But I'm sure non of you conservatives or liberals would do that.
The rebels are islamic supremacists who want to force sharia law on Syria. The Washington Post had an article about the rebels giving beatings with metal pipes to enforce sharia law in Aleppo. To give $130 million to support these vicious rebels is insane.
