Obama’s Non-Lethal Aid to Syrian Muslim Brotherhood is a Deceptive Euphemism


There used to be a basic distinction between military and humanitarian aid. Military aid meant weapons. Humanitarian aid meant medical and food supplies.

Nonlethal aid blends the two together by combining medical supplies with military gear into something that is military aid, but pretends not to be. Nonlethal aid is not humanitarian aid. It’s military aid that you give to enemy forces that you want to see win, but whom you don’t trust. It’s military aid that bypasses international blocks on military aid.

Nonlethal aid is dishonest. It tries to make military aid sound humanitarian by emphasizing defense rather than offensive equipment. But defensive battlefield equipment is still there for an offensive purpose when being dispensed to a force that is pushing forward to capture territory.

The United States is providing Syrian rebels with $123 million in new nonlethal aid that may include body armor and other types of supplies that haven’t been part of the assistance package in the past.

The additional money will double the nonlethal assistance to the Syrian opposition as well as increase humanitarian aid. The nonlethal aid could include armored vehicles, night vision goggles and advanced communications equipment.

Armored vehicles, body armor, night vision goggles and communications equipment are only nonlethal in the sense that you don’t use them to physically kill someone with. Instead you use them in military engagements in which people are being killed.

The distinction approaches the point of absurdity. A Syrian FSA unit equipped with body armor, armored vehicles and night vision equipment can launch an attack on a Syrian position that would not be possible without it. The non-lethal military equipment amounts to support for a military attack.

The United States is not officially sending weapons. It is however standing aside while Qatar sends the weapons. This was Obama’s M.O in Libya. Now it’s his M.O. in Syria.

Obama never admits to starting wars. His military engagements lack that basic honesty. Instead in Libya he called for a No Fly Zone and acted as the air force for the Libyan Islamist militias. Now he’s preparing to do the same thing in Syria.

For years the left shrieked that Bush lied about WMD in Iraq, Obama however lies about the very existence of the wars that he fights.

    Referencing 1984 is perfect. Socialism is and always will be a dystopia. However, its new speak is only one of the tools being used to open the world's doors for the Muslim Brotherhood to walk right in.

    When Obama consumed dog meat he must have choked on the dog's hind leg.

      Michelle only has 2 legs. And it's doubtful he'd be eating that dog, as the first openly gay president.

    President Stinky (BO) Benghazi is garbage. When he had Ambassador Stevens murdered for planning on blowing Stinks in for selling guns to Syrian Rebels, he was supplying LETHAL aid (and earning some mighty nice commissions in the process). It's the same tactic he used on Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. When he found out that Eric and Stinky were selling guns to unlicensed pharmaceutical distributors (PC for drug dealer).

    "Obama’s Non-Lethal Aid to Syrian Muslim Brotherhood is a Deceptive Euphemism"

    The first in a long string of deceptive euphemisms was "hope and change."

    The hope of communist traitors to change the USA in to a client state of the global communist caliphate.

    ANY aid, whether in weapons or food, given to the worldwide Brotherhood Mafia is a nail in the western coffin. Couched under "humanitarian" gobbly gook won't change a damn thing, and this is the truth. Verbal gymnastics is a key weapon of the left's arsenal, so be aware of its nuances – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/27/chemical-aler

    Living in the cross hairs, of everything that Obama Inc. is purposefully designing, makes it that much more personal – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/13/coming-full-c

    His orchestration started with Egypt and its effects are spreading, as planned.Recognize it for what it is.

    CLIP FROM GRAND DECEPTION: "The Muslim Brotherhood is an international movement. The goal of which is to create an Islamic state universally all over the world.

    In my mind and is the mother of all Islamic organizations of the 20th century, including Al Qaeda.

    Democracy does not equal freedom. No, we do not want to democratize Islam, we want to Islamize democracy.

    They believe that western civilization is corrupt, evil, decadent, and they want to dismantle it.

    The title Grand Deception actually came from a term that was invoked by a group of Muslim Brotherhood activists who secretly got together in Philadelphia in 1993 in a meeting that was actually wiretapped by the FBI, and in that meeting — and the wiretaps have been declassified — they openly talk about deception as the primary campaign tactic that they would use to change the image of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States by creating new front groups, by changing the terminology, by claiming they were against terrorism publicly but in fact raising funds for Hamas privately. The word deception is the word that I used in the title because that is exactly what is going on throughout the country with these radical Islamic groups. Not all of them are terrorists, . They are radical in the same way that David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan are radical. Imagine if you had 150 KKK groups around the country being appointed to the State Department, being appointed to DHS, having their indictments dropped. This is what's going on with the radical Islamic lobby the tutelage of the Muslim Brotherhood which created all these groups when it started coming here in 1963. It was a deliberate effort to basically camouflage their true agenda, the agenda of creating an Islamic state. In the film we used informants to secretly tape many of these Muslim Brotherhood groups behind closed doors where they openly stated, 'the U.S. would become a Muslim state,' 'that Islam will prevail in the United States,' 'that Islamic terrorism does not exist' in fact." –Steve Emerson
