With Congress back from recess and the leadership promising a vote in Congress on the proposed Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) in Syria, the country and the possible American intervention are on the tips of tongues of Americans across the country. There have been a number of reasons given by pundits, Representatives, and Senators for why the U.S. should not intervene in Syria: The U.S. should not help Al-Qaeda; there is no strategic U.S. interest in the conflict; intervention in the conflict could draw the U.S. into a regional proxy war.
There are, however, many with slightly less orthodox objections to a U.S. intervention in Syria. The internet provides a soapbox for all those who want it. Anyone can sign up for a blog or use open source web sites to throw their voice in with pundits and politicians in a way never before possible. For many, Craigslist has become a place to "rant and rave" about what is going on in Washington, especially for those whose political tendencies exist on a slightly different plane of rational thought.
Below are the five best "rants and raves" found on Craigslist about Syria, with the content exactly as it appears on the site except for the redacted curses and profanities.
Motherf***ing Barrrrakk Obama's brother Malik is wanted on Egypt's Terror-watch list for being a Muslim brotherhood leader.... Coincidentally, Barrrrakk Obama-hitler said "Arrest Muslim brotherhood leaders and we will cut off your foreign aide".
Is this Muslim who you really want as your leader??????? I guess so since you voted for him, you whiny ass liberal c***s.
What the f*** did Syria do to you Malik??"
"The Benghazi attack was all about Obama and Hillary trying to get back the Stinger missiles that they sold, gave or 'lost' to the Libyan rebels (al quaeda). The missiles are now in the hands of the Syrian rebels (al quaeda). Obama and Co. are very worried that those same missiles will make it into the U.S. via the southern border. Needless to say, commercial aviation will be the target. Thusly Obama needs to get speciial forces into Syria to etreve tthe missiles. He cannot do this with out the pretext of 'painting targets' for air raids. So there you have it. Otherwise he will have to close southern borders and hillary will lose."
"SYRIA HAS SENT 4 PLANES TO EL-- SALVADOR LOADED W/ MUSTARD GAS, READY TO DO FLY OVERS ON AMERICAN STATES . OBAMMA AND HIS CABINET SEEMS TO WANT TO GET INTO THIS CRAP , ALL WE NEED ,HUH???"
It was a botched trade deal.
We were allowing them to kidnap Stevens in order to have legitimate trade deal for Omar Abdel-Rahman. Stevens and the Marines were ordered to stand down, when they didn't, those coming to kidnap Stevens thought we tricked them, so they killed Stevens and the Marines.
We're helping Al-Qaeda in a civil war in Syria. Yes, the same group we've been at war with, we're now assisting in a coup to take over Syria.
Bush Jr. / Obama, there's absolutely no difference.
Presidents don't run the show anymore, we do."
russians had a nuclear missile submarine in the gulf of mexico in the past 14 months
china had an 'aircraft carrier' in the gulf in the past 11 months.
a week ago, the United Nations had an emergency meeting to discuss what to do about syria, both the russian and chinese U.N. ambassadors left the meeting in a fit of rage.
if we attack syria. there will be war in south korea as the the three large communist countries will join to create a communist union,
when this happens, they will envelope south korea, marines will die there
they will push into the pacific ocean and retake the Ryuku islands, marines will die there as-well
iran will launch ballistic missiles into my brother Israel, setting off the the end of humanity.
if 'they' want to destroy and cripple America, 'they' will attack iowa, cut off the infastructure of the nation and starve us from the inside out.
iowa is the agricultural center of the nation, we grow America's food. heck, we grow the food, our food eats.
they need to send about 100,000 troops using boats up the mississippi river, and they will split the country into two sections,. they will then use airborn troops from east to west from the atlantic to the pacific, (or vis-versa)
for some reason we allowed an anti un-american born individual to lead our nation, we have let him destroy our bill of rights, and blaspheem our god.
THE END IS NEAR!"
