http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/01/16/us-sending-400-troops-to-train-syria-rebels-this-spring/?intcmp=latestnews For those of you worried about the content of the article since it came from Fox, don't be, it's irrelevant. This is more of a broad opinion I have on the matter, I just used this link since it was the first one that popped up on google news. There are obviously others. The Syrian rebels, teamed up with Al Qaeda and taliban-funded cells, are nothing more than the same guys we are fighting in Afghanistan. They are religious extremists who oppose democracy. Believe it or not, and this is just my opinion, Assad has the same feelings for terrorists as we do! He hates Al Qaeda! Why is Obama (not only Obama- McCain was a big supporter of this too, along with other Repubs) authorizing such a stupid deployment? Training the very people that will train and recruit other terrorists? What the heck is going on???
