Russian Soldiers & Arms In Syria to Assist in Slaughter of Rebels: Whither President Obama?

By John W. Lillpop

On March 29, 2011, President Obama addressed the nation and unleashed a blast of his world-class, soaring rhetoric to justify military action in Libya, a nation in conflict, but where said conflict did not involve any national interest, direct or indirect, of these United States.

Obama’s exact words from that date:

“Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different. And as president, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action.”

Obama’s high-minded, conscience-driven rhetoric from nearly a year ago seems to have gone missing with respect to atrocities in Syria where the regime of President Bashar al-Assad has killed more than 8,000 Syrian rebels.

The war in Syria intensified significantly with the arrival of soldiers and weapons from Russia, sent to help Assad commit genocide against Syrian rebels.

As reported in part at the reference:

A Russian military unit has arrived in Syria, according to Russian news reports, a development that a United Nations Security Council source told ABC News was "a bomb" certain to have serious repercussions.

Russia, one of President Bashar al-Assad's strongest allies despite international condemnation of the government's violent crackdown on the country's uprising, has repeatedly blocked the United Nations Security Council's attempts to halt the violence, accusing the U.S. and its allies of trying to start another war.

Now the Russian Black Sea fleet's Iman tanker has arrived in the Syrian port of Tartus on the Mediterranean Sea with an anti-terror squad from the Russian Marines aboard according to the Interfax news agency. The Assad government has insisted it is fighting a terrorist insurgency. The Russian news reports did not elaborate on the Russian troops' mission in Syria or if they are expected to leave the port.

The presence of Russian troops in Syria could be a "pretty obvious" show of support to the regime, according to Russian security expert Mark Galeotti.”

As Syrian rebels are slaughtered in the streets, President Obama fills his days and nights with fundraising events to raise campaign cash and with other political actions focused on the November elections.

Once again, this failed president has sent a loud and clear message to the world: America is no longer a moral and military leader and cannot be relied on to speak out for justice and freedom!
