Obama announces new aid for Syrian rebels

Yahoo News – by Oliver Knox

Under fire for not doing more to help Syria’s rebels, President Barack Obama announced on Tuesday that he’s sending opponents of strongman Bashar al-Assad another $155 million in humanitarian aid and defended his handling of the bloody conflict. Obama said the aid sends a message to the world.

“The relief we send doesn’t say ‘Made in America,’ but make no mistake—our aid reflects the commitment of the American people,” he said in a video posted on the White House website. The message includes Arabic subtitles.

Obama, who faces chiefly Republican criticism for not offering the rebels American weapons or taking other steps to beat back Assad’s armed forces, said the money would help Syrians under fire and those who have fled to neighboring countries.

“I want to speak directly to the people of Syria,” he said in the video. “This new aid will mean more warm clothing for children and medicine for the elderly; flour and wheat for your families and blankets, boots and stoves for those huddled in damaged buildings.

“It will mean health care for victims of sexual violence and field hospitals for the wounded,” he continued. “Even as we work to end the violence against you, this aid will help address some of the immediate needs you face each day.”

The new aid will bring total U.S. assistance to Syrian rebels to $365 million.

“We’re under no illusions. The days ahead will continue to be very difficult. But what’s clear is that the regime continues to weaken and lose control of territory,” Obama said.

“The opposition continues to grow stronger,” he added. “More Syrians are standing up for their dignity. The Assad regime will come to an end. The Syrian people will have their chance to forge their own future. And they will continue to find a partner in the United States of America.”

While senior Obama aides say Washington has not been arming the rebels, there have been media reports that the CIA and other agencies have been steering arms from third parties to certain opposition forces and working to exclude Islamist extremists—like al-Qaida—from assistance.–politics.html

    Where the hell is the Sandy relief money for those poor people in New York and New Jersey. Why aren’t the governors raising hell? How the hell does this happen? This Syrian money will be delivered within days no questions asked, yet the people in New York and New Jersey are getting the shaft.

      Exactly why I posted this, Mark. I’ve had it with this shit! I’ve had it with Obama’s treasonous bullshit! All of these bastards need to be tried and hanged.

      Where is the military and where are the people yelling and screaming in the streets and taking over Washington D.C.? I’m so sick of this shit, I can scream!

      Mark, I think that it is delliberate don`t you? The govt. knows exactly what it is doing. Like with that Sandy storm, I am suprised that there is not more posters on death and deseases. but – I think we all know that there is a lot of people dieing in the streets that we all do not even hear about because we are the throw out society in the eyes of the PTB and especialy in the eyes of the govt. in Wash. DC. That is why there isa so much secrecy in the govt.s of the world. They think they are so sneaky but they still need body guards? If they were honest they would never need body guards.

    I heard this speech and it made me sick to my stomach. We have relatives in Syria and believe me, they do not want Assad to leave. He is protecting the Christians there. The Al-Qaeda terrorists that we have been giving supplies, arms and intelligence information are the ones killing innocent civilians(especially Christians) and our state department is blaming it on the Assad government. He is not at all like his father who was a brutal dictator. He has worked very hard to try and change Syria. They are looking for any excuse to get rid of him to take over that country and then move on to Iran. It’s pure bullshit..excuse my french….

    Since WHEN does this communist A-hole speak for the American people?

    • NC says:

      I know. Does he even know what country he is in? Is that suppose to make us Americans feel better to know that everything we have is not made in America? How can we even be committed to sending resources that we no longer even have?

      It’s clear to me that Obozo has no idea where the Hell he is at or what country he is talking to. Hell, he doesn’t even know what state he is in half of the time, which is just another reason why our founding fathers made sure that we never put someone in office who is NOT born in America! This guy is the biggest traitor in the history of the world and there’s no stopping him. When he’s done, he will abolish presidential terms and make himself dictator by the time 2016 rolls along. However, I’d be surprised if we even make it that far.
