Bill To ‘Stop Arming Terrorists’ Gets Only 13 SupportersIn a rare outbreak of common sense, a bill barring the US Federal Government from giving money and weapons to child murdering terrorists like the head amputators, slave dealers and human organ noshers of ISIS and Al Nusra (Barack Obama's beloved 'moderate rebels',) garnered hardly any support from either the Democratic Perpetual War Party, or the Republican War Is Good Business Party.
The bill, introduced by Rep. Gabbard Tulsi [D-HI] and maverick Republican senator Rand Paul in the upper house was supported by only 13 members of the US House of Representatives and currently has zeroi support in the Senate.
For several decades the US government has funded, supported, and armed various terrorist networks throughout the world, with the intention of advancing an agenda of destabilization, regime change and proxy war. It is neither a secret, nor a conspiracy theory, America arms bad guys as part of its bid for global hegemony.
Given the history of the American empire and its fostering of terrorist movements across the globe, and the generosity of the military / industrial complex to those politicians who serve their interest well, it should come as no surprise that the overwhelming majority of politicians would refuse to sign on to a law that requires them to forego that generosity by stopping the ‘ Arming of Terrorists.’
H.R.608 – Stop Arming Terrorists Act was introduced on January 23 of this year but has only recently been voted on. There are no strings attached, its a simple "We will nno longer do this" proposition and its sponsors are a mix of Republicans and Democrats — highlighting that it transcends party lines.
“For years, our government has been providing both direct and indirect support to these armed militant groups, who are working directly with or under the command of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all in their effort and fight to overthrow the Syrian government,” Gabbard said in an interview earlier this year.
The text of the bill is simple. It merely states that it prohibits the use of federal agency funds to provide covered assistance to: (1) Al Qaeda, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), or any individual or group that is affiliated with, associated with, cooperating with, or adherents to such groups; or (2) the government of any country that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) determines has, within the most recent 12 months, provided covered assistance to such a group or individual.
It is of course a violation of the United Nations charter for any member nation to intervene or take sides in civil disputes and conflicts in any other sovereign states. The USA has consistently ignored this provision almost from the day the United Nations opened for business.
The only thing the bill does is prohibit the US government from giving money and weapons to people who want to murder Americans and who do murder innocent men, women, and children across the globe. Given its rational and humanitarian nature, one would expect representatives to be lining up to show their support.
After nearly 5 months since its introduction, only 13 of the 535 members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors. What this lack of support proved is that the federal government is deeply involved in funding terror and has no intention of ever stopping it.
