Evidence and facts? Since when has that been relevant? LOL. It's extremely inconvenient.

ok Ed, that's a pretty bold statement.

Is that all Americans, or just the bad ones?

@fran7: What do you really know about'USA citizens are among the most pleasant and honest in the World "? Have you ever heard about the expression: 'Do unto others then split'? That's the US culture: A bunch of simpletons, illiterate, racist ,gang affiliated, fat, alcoholics, Nazis and fascists sympathizers, sex freaks, dope addicts, criminals,greedy ,child molesters,thieves, corrupted, to the core.

USA citizens are among the most pleasant and honest in the World and it is not entirely their fault that their governments past and present have been doing things such as PRISM behind the backs of USA populace. Warmongering senators and USA aid to Israel plus aid to Terrorist rebels in Syria who boast about cannibalism are also a big part of USA problem. Interventionist policies are not working in a benign way indeed the opposite is true with most of the death and destruction in the middle east attributed to USA backing of poison gas rebels in Syria and mayhem in Libya, Iraq and Mossad assassinations' of scientists.

Simply put, the Americans have lost their credibility.

  


Fi rst of all, the "American people" are the ones who put pressure to not bomb Syria. Second, you are the typical bloodthirsty 3rd world peasant who has nothing but hate and bloodlust in his heart. We just avoided a war, and all you can talk about is how "America cried wolf for not bombing Syria".

So if America bombs...bad. If America doesn't bomb...bad.

Must be hard carrying around that big intelligence of yours.

Simply put, the Americans have lost their credibility. The nation that cried wolf. Nobody believes in American generosity and their sympathy. Their air strikes is not helping the people of Syria. Their track record with the Kurds, the Iraqis, the Afghans and the Libyans to name a few are all disastrous. They only add to the misery of the people. Their puppets are the only ones who benefit from these disasters. The Americans citizens are the ones who have to live with this hatred towards them and the bad karma for these treacherous deeds done on their behalf.

What are they really saving? The world is still on life support and fading fast.

I'm awaiting an American Idol star to sing, "Boots on the ground, boots on the ground - what's all the kids doing with their boots on the ground?"
Th at performance will follow Hollywood's new propaganda film, Tomahawk Down.

Seriously the US is mad if it attacks the Syrian government to aid the rebels, hello? The FSA is no longer functioning, hello? Terrorists have taken over!

Actually, Assad should ask Putin point blank whether he is going to defend Syria militarily or not? If he gives no clear straight answer then Assad should better pack up and take exile in Russia or in Latin country because military strike by the west is sure thing and he has no chance to win this war......if he doesn't pack up then will happen what happened to Saddam or Qaddafy!!!

  


IF Assad would do that, he should do it because it's the will of the people of Syria, not because the US wants it.
It's not their job to boss the world around!

Of course, Syria will retaliate with whatever they have (they don't really have much!)! There is no brainer.....any country will try to defend whatever they have with to defend. I am actually surprise that they have haven't retaliated against Israel's several strikes in Syria. May be they don't have enough power to do so! This is one of the reasons the west and Arabs want to invade Syria because they know that Syria is so weak by its civil war to retaliate back. Russia has no spine to stand up against the West. If it was true Syria's friend then nobody will be talking about attacking Syria today! It is simple as that!

Where in the world have you been - "Don't tell me - You live in the US" - If you know nothing about a subject - what not try keeping your mouth Closed and your eyes Open - maybe that way some element of fact could possibly find it's way into your solid cranium...

 

John-Paul Cox 09.09.2013 18:06

I agree with one thing - Former Pres. Bush forged evidence to invade Iraq. So you know, most all Americans believe that as well, and we are now ourselves much more skeptical of "so-called" ; evidence.

However, no one has seriously denied a CHEM attack occurred. No one has ever suggested prior to this point that the opposition had CHEM weapons, and Syria has confirmed in the past they controlled all CHEM weapons. Assad has the burden of proof here, since he is the only confirmed "side" that has these weapons...and they were used August 21st.

Barak Obama did nothing of any note as a lawyer, almost nothing as a Senator, and has proven to be as incompetent as any member of the Bush family as President. His grant personal accomplishment was a memoir of his youth that made him a multi-millionaire. Now, on the strength of his own convictions, he wants the world to follow along with a scheme to punish Syria. Of course no one wants to buy into this. Obama will certainly make millions more when his presidency ends with appearances, speaking engagements and book deals as Bill Clinton has. Prove you are smart and don't buy any of his trash.

"the next Bolshevik revolution is well on its way against YOU!"

clearly you don't understand bolshevism if you think that is what is currently happening in this country. As a communist, I can assure you we are against this President more than anyone and we do not support this war.

 

Capucine Altier 09.09.2013 15:31

The reason why they cannot so easily overthrow Assad is because there is more into this story than we officially know. This situation will only expose more dirt of all those who are involved including the west and their connection to other Middle East countries.... No matter how Assad is all those politicians around are no better. And the way they are attacking him will even worsen the situation because naturally he doesnt think he is an evil guy here and so he will try to defend himself as much as he can. I dont understand who s got the right to tell somebody from a foreign country and order to him to step down...
