US drops ammo to rebel fighters in Syria

United States military officials announced on Monday they had carried out an air-drop over the weekend to supply rebel groups in Syria with small arms ammunition. The move, part of Washington’s new approach to battle in the war-ravaged country, comes as members of the international community are pressing for more dialogue between the US and Russia, which is also waging war in Syria.

Military representatives said US cargo planes had dropped the ammo to opposition groups in northern Syria battling the “Islamic State” (IS) militia. Though the groups were not named, one official told the AFP news agency their leaders were “appropriately vetted by the United States” and confirmed to be fighting IS.

    Stupid gay muslim Obama

    the only thing we should be dropping on syria is nukes. Otherwise stay out and contain them.

    • Obama wants out.

      • Out of the White House? That would be great!

      • infedel

        He wants money and power on a white golf course as an AA puppet of soros..never did a darn thing in his life..

  • Everyone Else

    yeah right, 50 tons of bullets

    “four C-17 transport aircraft. The 112 pallets contained ammunition for M-16s and AK-47s”

    no anti-tank missiles in there?

    mainstream media doesn’t know how to and doesn’t want to ask questions

  • Holy Crap! the two things every single armed lunatic in Syria (including Putin) has in common is hatred and disdain for the US and the desire to destroy Israel. We should be busy firing ammunition at them not dropping it to them!
    Obama is once again pouring gasoline on the fire!

  • What a coincidence! I have also been dropping ammo on rebel fighters in Syria.

    • Maggat

      I have no problem with you dropping it ON them.

  • Shebel

    Can anybody ID the Rebel Fighters ?
    Can anybody ID ISIS?

    Which ones are our enemy?

    I honestly have no fucking idea.

    How can you pick a side and let your gov’t waste money in a never ending war ?
    The answer is easy. You can NOT.

    All we can ever do is be loyal to our friends.

    • Obama can ID ISIS- Just look for the JV players in Lakers jerseys.

  • tom_billesley

    It won’t purchase friendship so why give it away? They can buy their own.

  • Blacksmith

    So by vetted they mean one of them said to someone that they were fighting isis in order to get arms and ammo. That is the extent of the vetting by this admin I bet.
