EU Ends Arms Embargo on Syrian Rebels for the “Protection of Civilians”

Apparently the only way to protect civilians is to give weapons to terrorists. And apparently the only civilians the European Union is interested in protecting are Sunni Muslim civilians, rather than the Christian civilians they are kidnapping and murdering. And once they actually get their hands on EU weapons, the “Brave Syrian People” (TM) can begin kidnapping and killing Christian civilians with weapons from Christian countries.

The UK pushed heavily for not maintaining the arms embargo, just as it pushed heavily for the Libyan War. The UK’s Foreign Secretary sold the measure as a way of sending a message to Assad rather than a plan to send arms to the Syrian Jihadists, but that is an obvious ploy. This isn’t about sending a message, it’s about sending weapons. And anyone who thinks otherwise is kidding themselves.

Sanity came from unexpected places like Finland and Austria, but it did no good. The key players got their way, just as they got their way in Libya.

So this is a win for Turkey and Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s a win for the lunatics at the helm of foreign policy in London and France who are once again out-obamaing Obama.

    How many times does this need to be said…and why aren't they listening…six of one…half a dozen of another –

    Most intrinsically, the separation of "good" terrorists from bad ones has led us from there to here, as well as the Pyromanic-in-Chief's handiwork via Benghazigate. Holy smokes! Explosions primed to go off at my border….

    I am also wondering… wtf? After Libya, how can anyone be insane enough to support another al-Qaeda army? Syria is crushed. Hezbollah will soon be crushed. Let's just be happy with what we've got and leave it there. How can these people be so deluded as to think ANYTHING good can come from extending this war even further?

    Our leaders really are goddamned traitors. Anything for the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Am I delusional imaging the Crisis Group to protect… strangling Israel? George, Cass and Samantha are getting ready? Could Israel stop this empowerment of BM? Could this new configuration be limited?

    Foreign Secretary William Hague endorsed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.
    This is the same Muslim Brotherhood dedicated to "destroying Western civilisation from within".

    The EU has financial problems and may be adding to thier woes if Russia takes this ratcheting
    up as and assault on them as they support Asad. Putin may cut off the gas supply and stick it
    to the EU and with Iran invade and widen the war to a Middle Eastern confligration. The
    idea of caring for civilians is a nice thought though but what is not a good thought is our
    dear Senator McCain in the Middle East jinning up support for Al Qaeda, they should give
    him the order of the Camel, a turban and keep him……………………….William
