Why is the United States involved with Syria so much? Millions of dollars have already gone to support the al-Qaida-linked rebels, and now U.S. military force is being strongly considered. Why does America want Assad out of power so vehemently?We hear from the press about the use of chemical weapons by Assad. Is this the truth? The media, typically, is not the American public's best friend. It will tell you what the globalists want you to hear and believe, and to justify selected actions.You see, there are also viable reports that the chemical actions were actually done by the al-Qaida linked rebels in order to blame Assad. This kind of thinking is not unusual when certain objectives are being sought.Are we supporting the overthrow of Assad for Israel? If that was so, then I guess al-Qaida-backed rebels will have a different attitude toward Israel when it's all said and done. Don't believe it for one moment.What about Russia in all this? We have antagonized the Russians over and over again with our decisions to use military force when and where we want. This should not be taken lightly. Russia has been arming itself quietly and it's much stronger that the American media will tell you. Russia is strong and becoming much stronger. As Russia continues to rebuild, it's also taking advantage of America's current disarmament accommodations.In reality, American military force is being used to help implement globalist policy throughout the world.
