Let's check in with Obama's noble military allies in Syria
What have the boys in the rebellion been up to, while they wait for Barack Obama to arrive with their air support? From the Associated Press:
Al-Qaida-linked rebels launched an assault on a regime-held Christian mountain village in the densely populated west of Syria and new clashes erupted near the capital, Damascus, on Wednesday — part of a brutal battle of attrition each side believes it can win despite more than two years of deadlock.
In the attack on the village of Maaloula, rebels commandeered a mountaintop hotel and nearby caves and shelled the community below, said a nun, speaking by phone from a convent in the village. She spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.
Golly. They don't seem to like Christians any more than Obama's defeated allies in Egypt do.
