Are Saudi Arabia and Qatar trying to get Obama to bomb Syria back to the Middle Ages so they can run that big gas pipeline through Syria? Is that the real back story here, an attempt by the inscrutable Arabs to pimp America’s military to do their work even as such actions would destroy Assad and support Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood?
A “Vanity” posting on Free Republic, dated Sept 6, urges Americans to call Congress and say: “I know about the gas pipeline Saudi Arabia and Qatar want to run through Syria and Assad won’t let them!” The poster goes on to say that “They [the Saudi's] want Obama to pimp our troops to do their fighting against Assad for the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda!” (1)
Another trenchant, Free Republic contributor says the Muslim Brotherhood and Barack Hussein Obama my be closer or more connected than originally revealed. (2) This quote is thrown up against the web wall: “I don’t know if he is a card carrying member, but he clearly is a huge supporter of these various jihadists!” The name Shadi Hamid is associated with this rhetoric, but the name may or may not be just a generic Arabic moniker thrown out there to stir the roiling Middle Eastern pot even more.
TheBlaze.com is leaning toward conspiracy theories evolving out of the Egyptian Street’s “dissatisfaction with the Obama administration policy some have viewed as pro Muslim Brotherhood.” (3) That famous photo still careening around the web of Obama bowing low to the Saudi King isn’t helping his bomb, bomb, bomb Syria lyric either.
Al Jazeera English on Friday quoted Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei, who said, “The West is using allegations of chemical weapons as pretext for attacking Syria.” Qassem Soleimani, chief of Iran’s elite Quds force unit warns, “We will support Syria to the end!” (3)
The irony of President Obama sending a video greeting to the Muslim Brotherhood holding its big annual convention in Chicago on the very day he announced his plans to bomb Syria is simply stunning. You can view the entire video to hear Obama praise the Muslim Bros for “the myriad of ways the American Muslim Community and specifically ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) leadership has served as an effective partner in promoting inter-religious initiatives in the US and religious freedom for minorities around the world!” (4) This amazing praise to an Islamic organization alleged in some quarters to be connected to the destruction of some 80 Christian Churches near Damascus last week stings stateside.
And what happened on 9/11?
