General Patraeus is a lucky man. Once one of the most powerful generals of the US army and responsible for the death of millions of people in his career overseeing wars in Iraq, Afganistan and until August 2011 responsible for the entire war on terror with a sick liking for torture and brutality he was told the truth in New York by Students who recognized him while he was on his way to lecture. Luckily for him he walked away with his life.
While in Syria, another misbegotten war financed by his CIA and spurred on by the agenda he helped to set in his years in power, Catholics living in Maaloula where the still speak Armenian (the language Jesus taught in) were killed merely for refusing to convert to Islam, by the “rebels” financed by the US.
The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war.
The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.
So much for the attempts of the Nobel price winning Obama to follow the path of peace!
