‘Just as Life in Syria Shows Promise of Getting Back to Normal, US Ramps Up War’

President Obama has issued a memo waiving restrictions on the provision of military equipment to rebel groups in Syria. Speaking to Radio Sputnik, Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity director Daniel McAdams slammed Obama for trying to reignite the war, just as things are starting to look up for the establishment of a lasting peace.

Obama’s memo, issued Thursday to the Departments of State and Defense, waived earlier legal restrictions on the provision of military aid to the rebels, and instructed officials to seek Congressional approval to proceed with providing official US support to Syria-based militants, ostensibly for the purpose of ‘facilitating US anti-terrorist operations’ in the country.

The US president’s decision has met with a wave of shock and disdain from political commentators, academics and peace activists worldwide. Daniel McAdams, former foreign affairs advisor to ex-US Congressman Ron Paul, is among the critics.

Speaking to Radio Sputnik, McAdams suggested that while Obama’s decision did give him a shock, he wasn’t entirely surprised, since “Washington doesn’t ever seem to be able to turn away even from a very bad foreign policy.”
