In the two year conflict in Syrai the US Gov't as allocated 500+ million in support and aid to the rebels.
April 1 2012.
An international coalition gathered in Istanbul to address the situation in Syria has decided today that it will begin funding rebels and
providing them with communications equipment. The multi-million-dollar fund, backed by Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countires, will pay members of the
Free Syrian Army in their efforts to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad. They also hope to lure away defectors from his army with the money.
At a stump speech at the 70-nation Friends of Syria summit, Hillary Clinton warned of "serious consequences" if al-Assad does not adhere to Kofi
Annan's cease-fire plan, MSNBC reports: "Nearly a week has gone by, and we have to conclude that the regime is adding to its long list of broken
promises," she said. Clinton also pledged another $12 million to the cause, bringing the total amount of U.S. aid spent on the Syrian rebellion to $25
Annan's plan, which al-Assad agreed to last week, calls for a cease-fire, humanitarian aid for Syrian citizens, and a democratic political
referendum. There have been daily reports of violence since.

U.S. Offers Training and Other Aid to Syrian Rebels
The training mission, already under way, represents the deepest American involvement yet in the Syrian conflict, though the size and scope of the
mission is not clear, nor is its host country. The offer of nonlethal assistance is expected to come from Secretary of State John Kerry at a meeting
on Thursday in Rome with opposition leaders. Mr. Kerry is also expected to raise the prospect of direct financial aid, though officials cautioned that
the White House still had to sign off on all the elements.
One major goal of the administration is to help the opposition build up its credibility within Syria by providing traditional government services
to the civilian population. Since the conflict erupted two years ago, the United States has sent $365 million in humanitarian aid to Syrians. American
officials have been increasingly worried that extremist members of the resistance against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, notably the Al
Nusra Front, which the United States has asserted is affiliated with Al Qaeda, will take control of portions of Syria and cement its authority by
providing public services, much as Hezbollah has done in Lebanon.

Kerry’s announcement came after Syrian opposition forces almost skipped a meeting out of anger that the Obama administration isn't doing enough
to assist them. The opposition leaders, though, were persuaded to attend by Ford.
The aid is on top of a previously announced $385 million in humanitarian aid and more than $50 million to help the Syrian activists “organize
opposition efforts across the country” by improving their ability to communicate with each other and to broadcast a “message of hope across their

Ambassador: US providing $114 million in aid to Syrian rebels
The Obama administration is providing the Syrian opposition with $114 million in aid, more than previously revealed, to help topple Bashar Assad, U.S.
Ambassador Robert Ford told Congress on Wednesday.
Ford briefed House appropriators in a closed-door hearing following Secretary of State John Kerry's announcement last month that America would provide
$60 million in direct food and medicine assistance to the Syrian Opposition Coalition. The aid, Ford said, is in addition to $54 million in
communications gear and other aid already offered to “disparate Syrian opposition groups across the country to build a network of ethnically and
religiously diverse civilian activist."

John Kerry, the US secretary of state, has said that the United States would double its non-lethal aid to opposition forces in Syria to $250m.
Kerry on Sunday stopped short of a US pledge to supply weapons to rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
He said, however, that the rebels' foreign backers were committed to continuing support and had decided to channel all future aid through the
opposition Supreme Military Council.
Kerry added that "there would have to be further announcements about the kind of support that might be in the days ahead" if Syrian government forces
failed to pursue a peaceful solution.
Speaking after a meeting of the Syrian opposition and its 11 main foreign supporters in Istanbul, Kerry said the United States would provide an
additional $123m in non-lethal assistance to the rebels, bringing the total of this kind of US help to $250m.
Kerry urged other foreign backers to make similar pledges of assistance with the goal of reaching $1bn in total international support.
But it gets better.
April 11 2013
(Reuters) - U.S. senators, including some of President Barack Obama's fellow Democrats, pushed the White House on Thursday to shift its policy and
provide lethal military assistance to rebels waging a civil war against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
It is absolutely scary how some of these elected officials yearn for blood shed and the lengths, extremes, and the prices they will pay to get what
But in the long run, who pays for it?
Tax dollars, and drug money from the CIA Pimps which is done "legally" as well as those innocent casualties of war.
"Nearly a week has gone by, and we have to conclude that the regime is adding to its long list of broken promises," she said. Clinton also
pledged another $12 million to the cause, bringing the total amount of U.S. aid spent on the Syrian rebellion to $25 million.
1. a mode or system of rule or government: a dictatorial regime.
2. a ruling or prevailing system.
3. a government in power.
4. the period during which a particular government or ruling system is in power.
A democratic regime? or the illusion of?
Common sense is only as common as those who share the same, have access to the same, information and knowledge. To empower the masses is to share
knowledge and not control that power. The power the gov't has slowly taking away from the masses for centuries.
It is Time to unite that common sense inside those who are being enlightened to this out pour of information and take a stand, that we the people
will not endure these tyrannical acts of abuse suffered at the hands of the elected few, we the masses are lead to believe as trustworthy.
