As rebel-held sections of Aleppo crumbled under Russian bombing this month, the Obama administration was secretly weighing plans to rush more firepower to CIA-backed units in Syria.
The proposal, which involved weapons that might help those forces defend themselves against Russian aircraft and artillery, made its way onto the agenda of a recent meeting President Obama held with his national security team. – Washington Post, 10/23/16
Hello, CIA. How are you? I am fine. If you root for a particular football team, I hope it is winning this year.
Do you know the definition of insanity, CIA? It’s repeatedly arming rebels and expecting a different result. Can you name me one long-term victory that’s come from arming the rebels? On any continent? (And you have armed rebels on every continent, CIA.)
Taliban? Rebels we armed. Al Qaeda? Rebels we armed. Sure, ISIS was personally founded by Hillary Clinton, but the pattern remains.
In conclusion, please stop arming rebels.
