This is an URGENT call to action!
Congress just doesn’t get it… They don’t understand what they are about to do…
The President has asked that Congress give him permission to send $500 million worth of weapons and ammunition to the “moderate” Syrian rebels, and both John Boehner and Harry Reid are happy to comply.
We have been hammering Congress, demanding that they refuse Obama the money to arm these terrorists. We have sent thousands of faxes warning of the unintended consequences associated with arming these terrorists. Obama’s proposal to arm so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels makes no sense for three fundamental reasons…
- We have no idea who these people are! We have no idea who will be receiving the weapons. There is no such thing as a “moderate” Syrian militant, only those who are less extreme than ISIS.
- We have no idea whether these “moderate” Islamists will turn on us down the road. We financed and armed al-Qaeda during the Soviet Union’s invasion of Afghanistan. Many have suggested that we provided Osama bin Laden with one of his first AK-47s. The point is that the enemy of our enemy isn’t always our friend, and we shouldn’t be so stupid as to think that!
- The majority of the Syrian rebel groups have no desire to fight ISIS. The Free Syrian Army, for example, has said outright that any weapons the U.S. gives them will be used to fight the Syrian regime, not ISIS. To top it all off, many of the more “moderate” Syrian rebel groups have signed peace treaties with ISIS and promised not to fight one another!
In fact, the list could go on and on!
Obama is pressuring Congress to vote TODAY on whether to spend half a billion dollars to arm and train Syrian rebels… But since we have begun pressuring Congress this week, there has been a split in both parties.
John Boehner has admitted that the Republicans don’t have enough votes to carry the measure. He is pleading with Democrats to help fill the gaps and get the terrorist-funding bill passed!
You must put a stop to this before Congress makes a dangerous mistake!
A vote to arm the Syrian Rebels is imminent! Tell Congress that is must STOP the Obama administration’s plan to send weapons to these terrorists!
This vote is happening TODAY! We already have a number of Congressmen and Senators uneasy about sending half a BILLION dollars to Syrian extremists. But instead of allowing the bill to die, John Boehner is forging ahead and joining forces with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats to make sure he has enough votes!
Think about how much money $500 million is. Think of all the good that money could accomplish here at home… now think about how much pain and suffering it will cause if it is used to supply Syrian rebels with machine guns and heavy weaponry!
This should be a no-brainer. It should be obvious that sending $500,000,000 worth of weapons to a bunch of Syrian extremists is a bad idea.
Congress needs to understand that the enemy of our enemy isn’t always our friend. As deplorable as ISIS is, the solution is not just to throw money at the problem, especially when that money would be given to a bunch of Syrian extremists!
