We see President Obama's decision to arm Syrian rebels as a concession to the conservative War Party, led by John McCain and Lindsey Graham, and joined by the perpetually triangulation-minded Bill Clinton.
But the right-wing base hates this intervention. Sample titles of right-wing blog posts:
* MORE PROOF HE IS EVIL: OBAMA HAS DECIDED TO GIVE MILITARY SUPPORT TO AL QAEDA'S AFFILIATES
* Obama Decides to Supply Syria’s 'Rebels' — i.e. al Qaeda and Assorted Islamists
* State Department Listed Supporters of Terror Used Chemical Weapons on Different State Department Listed Terrorists
Drudge is calling them the "Syrian 'rebels,'" with "rebels" in quotes, and is greeting the decision with booga-booga scare headlines and visuals:
The reviews in this Free Republic thread are all negative:
John N Lindsey proving their loyalty to the progressive caucus.So this upsets the right as well as the left. But it makes the Sunday chat show panels happy, so it's the mainstream, sensible thing to do.
So, what is it with Graham ~ the gay thing ~ he doesn't like Christians because of their stand on homosexuality?
Remember, none of these pukes have any answer to how we keep Obamugabe's rebel buddies from killing all the Christians ~ and they know it, and that's why it's fair to impute intent to their actions.
Bambi finally got the excuse he wanted to back Al Qaeda in Syria
Don’t pay any attention to that IRS scandal behind the curtain, look at the shiny new support for the Syrian rebel movement! Bang the drums. Make noise with those cymbals.
