US Has to Decide to Back Hezbollah or Al Qaeda in Syria

US policy in the Middle East never has been brilliants, but deciding on whether to arm Syrian rebels means either backing Al Qaeda and the rebels or letting Hezbollah move into the regime.

No one has grasped the truth that no Middle East rulers outside of Israel only want political solutions when they know they will be the winners. They play an “all or nothing” game that is foreign to Western culture.

Associated Press reporter Matt Lee had the best word of the day on Syria at Wednesday’s daily press briefing.

State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki opened up with a lofty and wordy statement that “the Syrian regime’s aggression is an unacceptable provocation and risks dragging Lebanon into the Syrian conflict…. We equally condemn the brutal, unprovoked gunfire by Hezbollah supporters on peaceful protestors outside the Iranian Embassy on Sunday.”

Lee replied sarcastically, “That wasn’t bad…. So, all of this bad, nasty stuff is going down. What are you going to do about it? When are you going to – are there any decisions forthcoming on changing strategy or adding – giving the opposition additional support or taking any kind of action which might make the Syrian regime less likely or less inclined to send helicopters over Lebanese territory to bomb them or tell Hezbollah to stand down? Anything?”

Her answer, of course, was the that President Obama’s “national security team continues to consider all possible options, barring boots on the ground, that would accomplish our objectives of helping the Syrian opposition serve the essential needs of the Syrian people and hasten a political transition to a tolerant and diverse post-Assad Syria.”

The administration has been considering options for a long, long time, and now it is forced itself to consider the option of arming Al Qaeda-linked terrorists or allowing Hezbollah terrorists to win.

  1. John Keytack says:

    How about “none of the above.” Either side will just end up using the weapons against us, anyway.

  2. I agree with you John .

  3. That won’t happen. If they end up with weapons it may well happen as is the nature of weapons.

  4. The US should support neither. Let them kill one another off. No big lose.

  5. With Al Nusra in Syria The American Gov. help going to give birth to another Osama bin laden.

  6. Alan Kardon says:

    Don't back either. Give the money saved to Israel. Whoever wins will surely blame Israel and the US for the problem. This way we have only one enemy to fight.

  7. Uziah Isaak says:

    JUST LET THEM FIGHT EACH OTHER,, BUT DO NOT HELP THEM,, BOTH OF THEM ARE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL…

  8. They should fight each other, this will take many years to get a end, the US and EUshould not disturb then, good for Israel.

  9. They should fight each other, this will take many years to get a end, the US and EUshould not disturb then, good for Israel.

  10. Obama now says the red line has in fact been crossed in Syria and he is going to Europe to discuss what action should be taken. Those actions taken against Syria, if effective in Assad’s eyes, may bring him to the conclusion that a strong strike against Israel is his only option to make Israel the focus of this war and not himself. If this strike by Assad is not successful he may move to the use of missiles armed with BIO/CHEM warheads in order to force Israel to get into the war. If the west moves to take effective military actions against Assad because he is using BIO/CHEM weapons then Assad no longer has any reason not to use them to their fullest extent because he is already paying the price for their use. With that in mind, we will likely see a large increase in Assad’s use of those weapons sooner rather than later. If Assad uses BIO/CHEM missile attacks against Israel, Israel will have little choice but to stop it fast and that cannot be accomplished by air strikes alone. In my opinion Israel would likely be forced to respond with nuclear retaliation. I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 is likely to take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
