We Americans are tired of being treated as stupid and irrelevant by our government. On the one hand, we are told Assad is a war criminal. On the other hand, we are told the rebels are backed by Al Qaeda. We were told Al Qaeda attacked us on 9/11. Now we are being told we should aid them against Assad. Assad did not attack us on our own soil. Even if the rebels could possibly be considered somehow less evil than Assad, they are still evil. I refuse to support either side in this.

  


You are correct. I hope our soldiers will learn to disobey the immoral orders!

It is evident that America is for hire to fight the Israeli, and the Muslim Saudi vengeance wars. We have became morally corrupt mercenaries. Our soldiers are dispensable to please the Islamists.

We fraught el Qaeda for a decade at a cost of thousands of our braves, and trillions of borrowed money, yet the Saudis and Israelis orders us to support al Qaeda in Syria, and our ignorant population is unable to figure it?

A few hundred cruise missiles will not cause damage exceeding already done in the last two years of the war. Neither it will change the power scenario within Syria. What is required is trained troops with sufficient firing power to totally defeat Assad, as it was done in Iraq. Let the next move begin!

RT- Saying this is an Israeli false-flag an offensive language that you would refuse to post, Really???

I think Assad should gas Putin .... Then maybe he will believe

These middle eastern factions and governments have been killing each other for thousands of years. Its the only thing they seem to do best, so let them exterminate themselves.The Prez needs to get back on his bus and do some more campaign stops, talking about nothing important. That would be Americas best option for peace. Lets get the Dem majority out of congress, repeal and destroy obamacare, stop the spending, and retreive our freedom and liberty. Stop porch monkey politics!!!

Ashamed to be American.

If the Libya upraise resulting in an international intervention can teach us one thing it is the importance of the UNSC to legitimate any foreign involvement. Western allies are cheating in Syria bypassing this rule through terrorists proxies doing their dirty work. And even this is not enough, they want to introduce brutal force to accelerate the process in their favor. But the most important thing they are pushing is a worldwide condemnation of blind aggression through WMD. This will set a precedent for ruling the use of DU and other dangerous weapons.

does Kerry know, fabius a criminal that killed hundreds french people with contaminated blood in the 80's?
this bi-national is a very good friend of netanyahoo..

Humor, morbid or otherwise, is a tension release. With what is happening in the world today, it may be even more nescessary than ever. If we have no control over events, laughter may be our best defense. For example: now that the Pacific Ocean is becoming radioactive from Fukushima, does that mean we will have lobsters with two tails? Yum!

Geoff King, I think many others share your gallows humour at this stage ;)

Good to know that there are many Americans, indigenous or otherwise, who see past the sickening games that Washington play on behalf of the vested interests of the same old same old lobbying industry that passes off as democracy.

It's hilarious how Catherine Ashton, a bureaucrat who was not elected by European citizens, speak as if she represents Europe.

Let's look on the bright side. If war in Syria escalates, we will no longer need to be concerned with global warming. A good long nuclear winter should handle that problem nicely....Sorry, they may take everything else, but they cannot have my sense of humor.

While the world is still waiting for the condemning evidence, the US media is taking the guilt of Assad for granted. The TV news reporting is unbelievable propaganda. What incredible brainwashing!

 

Geoff King 08.09.2013 13:09

People have been killing people since caveman time, or the Garden of Eden if you believe the Bible. Evidently, it is one thing we have always been good at. We just have better weapons now. What may happen in Syria is nothing new. It appears the human race is cursed to go on killing each other forever or until the last person is standing. If we do not learn from the past, we are destined to repeat it.

... The reason most NA tribes were nomadic was because they would kill all the game in one area and pollute all the water with their waste and be forced to move on, often attacking and killing any other tribe they happened to run into. They were not exactly the peaceful nature-loving people we have been led to believe.

  

The native Americans of the Southland... Choctaw, Chickasaw, Cherokee and Seminole were agrarians and lived as Europeans did in log homes, growing crops, trapping and trading with Europeans. They posed no threat.
