– The Bottom Line –
These are the very scumbags that Barack Obama wanted to send our boys to die for and is still supporting them with our money. They are not only the enemy of the Syrian people, but they are the enemy of any civilized person. Anyone who by now doesn’t understand this and the reality of Obama is beyond repair.
