Three years after U.S. President Barack Obama warned
dictatorial regime of Bashar Assad against using chemical weapons of mass
destruction (WMDs) in the Syrian civil war, the regime continues to use chemical
weapons with impunity, as well as to bomb civilian areas indiscriminately.
A quarter of a million people have died in
civil war. Three million people have
become refugees. The Assad regime, which
only Arab ally, is a state sponsor of terrorism. The U.S.
is training only a few dozen non-Islamist rebels while targeting the Islamic
State and al-Qaeda in Syria. The Obama Administration’s proposed nuclear
deal with Iran would free up billions of dollars for Iran not only to provide
even more aid to terrorists, some of which are fighting in support of the Assad
regime, but also for Iranian troops themselves in Syria.
