Don't attack Syria I

The U.S. government provides weapons to rebels fighting a civil war against the Syrian government. It's now asking Congress to approve supporting these rebels with cruise-missile attacks and bombing campaigns.

These rebels include al-Qaida members designated as terrorists by the U.S. government. Gruesome videos show rebels beheading Syrian civilians.

There's also credible evidence that these rebels have killed civilians using chemical weapons.

Meanwhile, here at home, the U.S. government is enacting policies that incrementally outlaw the Second Amendment and disarm its citizens.

It's militarizing all levels of government and law enforcement.

Its NSA monitors all domestic communications and lies about it.

Its bureaucrats, some at the criminally politicized IRS, will soon determine cost, content and access to medical care for its citizens.

Its Federal Reserve bankers continuously rob citizens of their currency's value via inflation; portions of that theft fund wars like the one in Syria.

It criminalizes dissent against these policies when citizens assemble to voice grievances.

Why does the U.S. government treat terrorists as its partners?

Why does the U.S. government treat its citizens as terrorists?
