Ethnic Cleansing Begins In Syria | RedState. It appears now that the Obama administration is ready to fully embrace as allies, the very people that attacked the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001. To add insult to injury, these same animals are guilty of genocide of Syrian Kurds, who have fled en masse to Northern Iraq. More than 100, 000 Kurds in Northern Iraq were killed via toxic gases by Saddam Hussein. No wonder Barack Obama opposed American intervention in Iraq. It appears that he has no problem with mass extermination of the very same people that Saddam Hussein was trying to eradicate. Although it is clear that Hezbollah may be the greater of two evils in this confrontation. Common sense would dictate that perhaps this should be a battle left for the Sunni and Shia to fight out among themselves.
