LIVING IN DENIAL, A NEGLIGENT OBAMA GRANTS A FREE HAND TO THE NO LONGER CONCEALED ASSAD-AL QUEDA ALLIANCE

Balatarin

Obama s just as much an accessory to Isis/Al Queda crimes as Assad and his allies. The latter had to be in on the regime's covert alliance with ISIS from Day One.  Now the alliance is no longer concealed yet Obama remains in denial .  Why?  Chamberlain-like naivete?  Cheap domestic political concerns? Pure stupidity?   

 

The graphic photo below shows what ISIS/regime forces are allowed to do as  Obama's sits by and does nothing.  Mere show dressing “protests” don't count, being so worthless they are tantamount to approval.  Their sole effect on the Bad Guys is to induce laughter, contempt  and mockery similar to that Chamberlain and Dedalier after Munich (Hitler referred to them as "contemptible little worms.").

What you you think of a heavily armed passerby who notices an old lady getting mugged by two thugs but walks past without hesitating?  That’s “our Obama!”  To make it worse, imagine that the same two thugs had previously targeted the passerby’s home or his family on repeated occasions earlier.  That's "our Obama!"   How many US troops or US civilians were previously murdered either by Al Queda or the regime—sometimes working together (see Iraq) in so many places?    

 

If not for a similar instance (the notorious Rose Garden betrayal) would we be seeing all these barrel bombs or deliberate starvation policies, or the massacres in towns near Qalamoun or the endless field executions?  Thanks, Obama!   Now the regime openly colludes with Al Queda, Obama’s response is… Denial, Denial and More Denial.   What would you expect?  Again, that’s “our Obama” behaving in classic fashion.

 

A GUARANTEE:  Allowing these two and their allies to gang up on the relatively moderate rebels will also have catastrophic consequences which won’t stop inside Syria.  Many Americans will die because of Obama’s negligence—past and present--in Syria just as millions died because of the Munich Conference sellout in 1938.

 

If this oblivious, Hamlet-like president does not arm the rebels with something more than pea shooters (aka "non lethal weapons) while everyone arms the Bad Guys then other, brighter folk must act must act out of self-defense. . It doesn’t matter whether it be Gulf monarchs or western governments having grasped reality.   

 

Unfortunately, Obama is too busy licking Putin’s toes and pushing the pre-rigged Geneva Conference to figure that out how dangerous his policy is.  So long as he winks at every crime, the regime and its allies will continue to provide Al Queda/ISIS with supplies, air power and artillery support.   Several regime units have cheered ISIS attacks even though Obama tells us “the regime is fighting Al Queda.”  He may as well join in those cheers. 

 

 As the rebels continue to fight against multiple enemies, who include Russian and Iranian proxies, Obama continues to peddle the same blatant lie: “This is a civil war and there (in spite of flawed premise) we should stay out.”   Translation:  “We should allow intervention but ONLY on Assad’s side.” The same President has been preparing us for a potential alliance with the Syrian Hitler and his pals as "the best way to fight Al Queda."   Don’t  be surprised if he continues to advocate that approach even after the events of the last ten days.   That’s “our Obama!”

 

Until now this two-time Obama voter had  decided to sit out the 2014 and 2016 elections in protest.  However I could not vote for the horrific Koch Brothers/Tea Party/KKK-NRA/ religious right GOP.   However Obama’s collaboration with those who have so often threatened national security has become so extensive that I may have to hold my nose and vote GOP (UG!)  The only thing that can stop he now would be a complete reversal of Obama’s “Do nothing serious” policies in Syria or the GOP nomination of someone equally stupid such as Rand Paul and Ted Cruz who have also repeatedly claimed—like Obama--America needs to side with Assad (the ultimate terrorist) “because he is fighting terrorists.”    

 

I hope Syrians won’t blame all Americans because we have such a stinker for a president.  When he ran for re-election, Obama concealed his intended sellout to Putin, Khamenei and Assad.   The extent of his betrayal surprised us as it surprised the world.  I’m ashamed of the man.  He played us all for suckers. In selling out America, allies and Sunnis, Obama ruined his own place in history as the President who broke the ultimate racial barrier.

MORE THAN 200 REGIME FORCES ADVANCE ON BASE 17 IN RAQAA WITH AL QUEDA HELPING THE ATTACK

Isis even allowed a supply copter to land without firing a single shot at it. In return, regime copters have been providing cover for ISIS fighters—an open collaboration between two bad assisted by Obama who continues to argue, “Assad is a great man who is fighting Al Queda. There I intend to side with Assad, Putin and Khamenei.”

According to Jad Baranth the local Ahrar AL Sham platoon surrendered to ISIS which then handed the position over to Assad’s forces. I assume platoon members were slaughter by either of the allies. Over 200 were murdered. Now we know why Division 17 managed to hold out so long. While ISIS controlled Raqaa and had easily enough forces to finish the base off, it never intended to do so by pre-arrangement with Obama’s favorites regime.

As The Arab Chronicle writes, “ISIS has sold the city to the regime.”The living disgrace has two more years in office, plenty of time to wreak havoc and aid the Bad Guys in the Middle East. Please, Israel, provide the help Obama refused! See Update #2 on why Israel should intervene.


BETTER NEWS IN ALEPPO

MAP: Rebels are gaining ground just west of Aleppo where ISIS appears surrounded. When they finish up they need to attend to the the Regime-Al Queda alliance in Aleppo before moving on Raqaa.

AN INSIGHT ON WHY SYRIANS ARE STARTING TO REJECT SECULARISM
“They are craving a religious leader because they associate secular rule with the brutal ways of the regime”

This article predates the clash with ISIS by about a week but it’s still quite interesting.

LAUGHING REGIME THUGS TORTURE STARVING CIVILIANS BY DANGLING BREAD & USING SNIPERS

Obama would giggle over this trick. At the yarmouk Camp, regime forces attach a bundle of bread near the entrance to draw starvng people. It dangles from a string tied to an iron bar. Of course a sniper will kill anyone who attempts to get it. Is there any difference between the regime and its al Queda ally?

SEVERAL SOURCES SAY REGIME HAS USED POISONOUS GAS IN DARAYA


3 dead, 16 injured. Further evidence needed. But why shouldn’t the regime do so? Obama is proven pussy at this point. ISIS & Assad forces openly assist one another and Obama says, “No problem. Assad is a hero fighting Al Queda for us.”

REGIME & ISIS TEAM UP TO KILL 60 HOMS REBEL IN A COORDINATED ATTACK

CASUALTY NOTE:

From all I can determine as I updated today up to midday at least regime losses appeared close to rebel losses in terms of fighters but the regime can’t replace losses. I only consider fighters and do not regard ISIS as “rebels” because they never were accept for stage dressing. Every ISIS loss is a rebel gain and a regime loss.

BOTH JABHAT & NUSRAH ATTACK WOMEN’S RIGHTS

http://www.hrw.org/news/2014/01/13/syria-extremists-restricting-women-s-rights


A LARGE CROWD CHEERS AS REBELS (Jabhat Al-Nusrah?) VOW TO EXPEL ISIS FROM SYRIA

My guess is that the speakers are JAN because of the black flags associated with Al Queda. I guess JAN has turned on ISIS after the recent exectution of a JAN commander and Islamist fighters. For ISIS anyone is fair game except Assad’s fighters. Note that the crowd is not pre-dominantly JAN. See the FSA flags with three stars.

Update #2:

THE TIME MAY NEVER BE BETTER FOR ISRAEL TO INTERVENE DIRECTLY AGAINST THE Al QUEDA/ASSAD ALLIANCE

Has Israel ever required pre-approval from the USA before going to war when her national security was at risk? Why start with Obama in the White House? Israel should find glee in doing now he refused to do months ago. What Sunni Arab would have imagined Israel coming to his or her rescue after an American president not only refused to prevent sectarian genocide but then rubbed it in by playing footsie with the very parties responsible? It would be indeed “the world turned upside down.”

Rebels are now fighting simultaneous against the Al Queda, Iran, Hezbollah, Assad and various proxies (all Israel’s enemies). With the possible exception of Jabhat Al-Nusrah, their interest and Israel’s interests coincide 100%. Israel could use a new friend in the region and I can’t think of a better way to make one. The case is overwhelming. What a way to cripple Khamenei without need of a direct attack! What a way to change regional attitudes toward Israel! Maybe the Turks and Saudi woul join any attack.

In terms of Israel’s national interest a speeded up rebel victory in which Israel played a part easily trumps every alternative outcome: a) Victory by extreme Islamists, b) An never complete victory by an unpredictable leader in a decades-long destabilizing and radicalizing environment or c) a prolonged, radicalizing civil war won by rebels with no outside help except from Gulf monarchs. It’s a no brainer.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ISRAEL?

The clock is ticking and this is a once-in-a-lifetme opportunity. If the regime and ISIS should manage to take the rebels out of the picture this chance will never come again. Potential benefits are humanitarian, political, strategic and military. What better way to cripple the IRI’s regional scheming beyond recovery? In terms of risk and cost it beats the next a direct attack on Iran yet it would no less effective.

Certainly Syrians would have reason to be grateful to Israel. Aside from that gratitude and the enduring hatred of the IRI due to genocide-supporting role, self-defense would suggest closer ties with Israel. Hezbollah in Lebanon, caught between two states with grievances, could be forced to disarm and disband. The Palenstinians, murdered and starved by Assad and his Iranian-Russian allies, would likely be far more amenable to a peace deal because of new trust gained.

PRIME TARGETS

#1: All ISIS positions and equipment (Avoiding mistaken attacks on rebels and even JAN would be essential so this requires coordination with rebels).
#2: Any and all regime air bases, command and control areas.
#3: Any artillery positions notorious for attacks on civilians.
#4: All regime forces engaged in starvation sieges against Syrians--including especially Palestinians--in Homs, Damascus, etc.
#5: All elite Revolutionary Guard positions and all pro-regime imported militia except Hezbollah to avoid retaliatory missile attacks on Israel. Only in event of such attacks would Hezbollah and possibly the IRI itself be targeted.
#6: Anti-aircraft facilities.

ABOUT THOSE RISKS: Even if Israel avoids any direct attacks on Hezbollah, there’s always the possibility that Hezbollah will respond with a missile attack. But that risk becomes just as likely or more so under all other scenarios, especially a direct attack on Iran. Why take the latter risk when there is an easier way to eliminate the same threat. After disposing of Assad, it will essential that Israel join with others in helping rebuild Syria—an impossibitity under the other three alternatives for many reasons.

OBAMA’S #1 GOAL IN SYRIA

Eliminate all moderates so Syrians are forced to choose between the Syrian Hitler (Assad regime) and Al Queda.

Incidentally that is Assad's goal exactly. What a coincidence!

NOW FOR SOME GOOD NEWS

JAN has killed 50 Abu Fadl Al Abbas Iraqi militia in Southern Damascus.


NYTimes: IRAN IS SENDING WEAPONS AND/OR AL QUDS FIGGHTERS TO SYRIA, YEMEN AND BAHRAIN

This is another case where the Bad Guys have taken advantage of naïve President Kissy-Poo. The IRI never stops scheminf against neighbors and Putin never stops scheming against the West but America’s oblivious president simply waves it all off as imaginary. In his dealings with Putin, Obama imagines he can win Khamenei over by being nice and playing kissy poo, much as Chamberlain played kissy-poo with Hitler at Munish.

And so, easing sanctions after the nukes deal has enabled Iran to continue its usual covert plots against Sunnis everywhere in the region. In response the Saudis and others must do the same.

Article: HOW CAN THE US MAKE A NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN WHILE THE REGIME CONTINUES ITS REGIONAL AGGRESSION?

“The United States has never been able to pursue arms control without delusion and has always insisted on sanctifying its negotiating partners, conjuring up moderates and searching for common ground. The challenge for Washington today is to defy its history and reach a nuclear agreement with Iran while negating the Islamic Republic’s regional ambitions.”

Update #1: Two news items/ mainly analysis

WITH OBAMA SNORING & ASSAD ASSISTING, ISIS TAKES RAQAA, AL BABS AND TEL ABYAD

Again, I ask reader to remember that it isn’t America who is on the regime’s side but Obama. Nor did Americans who voted for Obama approve such policies. While running he concealed his intentions. It was one of the greatest con jobs of all time. Didn’t he also fool the rest of the world?

ISIS EXECUTES 100 MEMBERS OF JABHAT Al-NUSRAH & AHRAR, INCLUDING A JAN COMMANDER

The executed included Abu Saad al-Hadram, Jabhat al-Nusra’s commander for Raqqa Province who was captured several months ago by ISIS.
Upsides:

#1: JAN had been official neutral and even protected ISIS in some places like Deir Ezzor. That’s likely to change.

#2: ISIS has discredit the whole Islamist movement among the population in general as well as among fighting rebels, including Islamist Front members who are less likely to tolerate such behavior from their own leaders in the future. Even JAN may feel restraints. Many members are Syrian nationalists with no interest in Al-Queda’s crusades. Lots of FSA joined JAN for the weapons and chance to fight a hated regime. Their only alternative in some places was to join ISIS which was even worse.

3: More and better weapons for the rebels—possibly including manpads. A better alternative would be a cruise missile attack but no on counts on Sleepyhead in Washington to wake up and provide leadership. Other western powers are certain to revise their attitudes toward arming the rebels. The Gulf Kingdoms will likely go much further in the quantity and quality of weapons provided.

Downsides:

#1: Potential short-run gains for the regime in the north (however, see below).

#2: Temporary relief for the regime in the south as rebels shift some forces north to counter ISIS—not enough, however, to enable regime advances in the south or eliminate all possible offensives.

#3: Rebel hopes of ending Homs siege in the very near future may have to be put aside.

#4: Some prolongation of the war. How much depends on what new help the rebels get to counter.

Possible Mid and long term Effects

#1: In the north: Once ISIS is eliminated, rebel forces are likely to be far larger there than when the fight with ISIS started. Rebels may take advantage to finish up in Aleppo and ISIS.

#2: When the rebels do move against the coast they’ll likely be better armed and include even larger forces. Any regime forces shifted north to take advantage earlier will have been lost.

(More updates later. Got things to do today)
