No, the United States should not move to help Al-Nursa in Syria. The US has overstretched its reach in the last 10 years. We are still trying to clean up our "help" in Iraq and Afghanistan another mission would not be wise. Small amounts of help never stay as such it seems to evolve into bigger issues fairly quickly.
The Al-Nusra Front is an arm of Al Qaeda. It is part of the Syrian rebels and has been called "the most aggressive and successful arm of the rebel force". The United Nations, United Kingdom, Australia, and the UNITED STATES have all designated it as a terrorist organization.
BUT Obama is proposing that we help them.
And it gets worse.
Al-Nusra was created by Al Qaeda in Iraq. They call themselves "the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham!"
Why is Obama trying to help terrorists? Not just terrorists but terrorists who have been actively attacking us?!
Is Obama ignorant of this? I don't think so.
Syrian rebels have allegedly threatened Christians with death if they did not convert. The report can not be confirmed but with acknowledgment that Al Qaeda has a major even leading presence among the rebels this isn't hard to believe. We could be aiding and abbetting genocide by helping the Syrian rebels.
