I see so many posts and comments against going to war with Syria that it baffles me. The Syrian government has closed Churches as well as killed, tortured and mutilated Christians in dozens of prisons used as torture centers across the nation. Syria has also used it’s military forces to persecute Christians in neighboring Lebanon. How can Church leaders defend or support this countries leadership?

The closest thing to a logical argument I have heard is the fear that Christian persecution will elevate to the levels it has in Iraq. Read the news, it already has and both the Syrian Government and the rebel militants are involved.

Syria also supports terrorism and terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Abu Musa Organization, and the Popular Struggle Front.

War with Syria would destroy it’s military infrastructure. If nothing else, it would leave Syria powerless to invade neighboring countries and territories as well as limit it’s ability to support terrorist groups.

It never ceases to amaze me how the well crafted words of political pundits and partisan politics cloud peoples memory. Brothers and sisters, stop drinking the partisan Kool-Aid. Before taking a stand against the destruction of Syria’s military strength do a little research. The links below are but a few examples of the evil that is Syria.
