US Turns Away Thousands of Cancer Patients, but has $123 Million for Terrorists in Syria

The US has announced that it will provide militants in Syria, now openly admitted to being Al Qaeda terrorists, with $123 million in military aid - while thousands of cancer patients at home are being turned away from clinics because of budget cuts. Compounding the criminal negligence of telling sick people to seek help elsewhere, is the fact that the military aid the US is providing terrorists in Syria will be used to perpetuate an already two-year-long, sectarian-driven humanitarian disaster.

RT recently reported in their article, "US to give $123 million military aid package to Syrian rebels," that:
The US$123 million defense aid package, announced by Kerry at the meeting in the Turkish capital on Sunday, includes body armor, armored vehicles, advanced communication equipment and night vision goggles.
In an April 3, 2013 Washington Post article titled, "Cancer clinics are turning away thousands of Medicare patients. Blame the sequester," it was reported: 
Cancer clinics across the country have begun turning away thousands of Medicare patients, blaming the sequester budget cuts.

Oncologists say the reduced funding, which took effect for Medicare on April 1, makes it impossible to administer expensive chemotherapy drugs while staying afloat financially.
When one considers that the conflict in Syria was premeditated by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, as early as 2007, simply to overthrow the Syrian government and weaken neighboring Iran, the mind-numbing criminality of America's current foreign and domestic policy becomes even more obscene.

It was reported by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh in his 2007 New Yorker article, "The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?" that:
To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has cooperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.
Now, clearly, while the West attempts to feign ignorance over the inception and rapid expansion of Al Qaeda in Syria, these 2007 plans are coming into fruition. It was revealed by the London Telegraph and the Washington Post that even "non-lethal" aid provided by the United States, including flour, was being used as a political weapon by Al Qaeda's al-Nusra front in Syria to win over support in territory it invades and occupies.   

When pursing a destructive war of geopolitical hegemony abroad takes precedence over the health and well being of a nation's citizens at home, the government taking such a posture has lost all legitimacy. The people of America will continue to watch their nation rot out from beneath them as long as they continue investing their money, time, energy, and attention into an establishment clearly divorced from the interests of the vast majority. Instead, the special interests exploiting America should be identified, condemned, boycotted permanently, and replaced by local alternatives - thus stealing from beneath them both their source of power, and their capacity to continue forward.

It's all about protecting the petro-dollar. Our whole economy is a house of cards. The fall of the United States as a superpower? We literally are living in some interesting (and scary) times.

Things are looking worse and darker year by year that's because the action for the Agenda is being applied and it seem successful. Until enough people don't wake up, they will continue to succeed. However I don't have much hope for people to wake up and see the reality since they are already brainwashed by the media. Somehow great article Tony, keep it up and big thanks.

US Vows to Prevent War in Syria If Damascus Breaks Ties with Iran

The Syrian diplomat Adnan Mahmoud: "Of course, in the very first weeks of the conflict in Syria, the US Secretary of Defense sent a message to the Syrian government, and said we should have cut our ties with the Islamic Republic of Iran if have wanted to stop the war, and stressed that if we did so, they would provide us with whatever we want."

US Senator Rand Paul said that the statements by persons claiming that the US is not involved in smuggling weapons to Syria are false.

He emphasized that there is reliable information in respect of consignments of weapons from Libya to Syria under US control.

In an interview with US television channel CNN, the senator said he asked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a question concerning a consignment by the US from Libya via Turkey of weapons to Syrian rebels and she said that a week before the murder of the US ambassador to Libya a ship with lots of weapons was sent from the country, and the US knew about it.
A meeting was held with the captain of the ship, who told the US representatives about weapons that had already been sent to the Syrian rebels and a shoot-out between the militants because of weapons division.
According to Paul, the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, not only supervised the shipment of weapons to the Syrian opposition, but also recruited jihadists for the Syrian opposition.
Paul confirmed that Syrian fighters for the most part are composed of members of the Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization and have a relationship with al-Qaeda.
