Why does everyone mistrust the US gov't so much? They haven't told a lie in about 50 or 60 years.

Ok, except for the NSA scandal...and the Fast and Furious scandal....and the IRS scandal(s)....and Iran Contra, and Iraq wmd's....and the Tuskeegee experiments...and Project Mockingbird and MKUltra, and the Gulf of Tonkin, and the USS Maine....and the Lusitania, and the Shah of Iran puppet.

But that doesn't mean their habitual liars. They are telling the truth this time, I promise! I'm happy to report that our government has mended its ways. It's in a 12 step program right now in fact, "Pathological Liars Anonymous."

I came here to see Russia's point of view on the entire fiasco and I am in agreement with them. It is apparent that every country is led by America, which is problematic because America does not respect any other country to wait to strike. It is funny how they are a part of the UN, which is peace keeping organization and hold a lot of power but refuse to respect the UN investigation.
I f they believe the UN is incompetent, they should attempt to make them more competent, not run in guns a blazing because they want a fight more than anything else.

Judeo-Christian Americans (who pledge their allegiance to Britain) never seize to amaze me on how evil, vicious and callous they are... trying to start yet another war to satisfy their never-ending thirst for blood.
It has never been more clear that, not only are they the ones behind this conflict, sponsoring Al Qaida to attack Syria, they are using their own Al Qaida affiliates' war crimes in order to justify the new war. It reminds me of the Contra terrorists in Nicaragua.
Franc e's only motivation, of course, is their increasing desperation stemming from a collapsing economy and financial system

The White House of course has the well-known Situation Room (now associated with the Benghazi Coverup), but under Obama, it also sports a "Hit List" room & a "Scheming Room", where they work out all their unholy plans to dominate & rule the planet. Oh I nearly forgot, they also have a special "Spy Room", where they listen in, not only on their Allies & trade partners, but on the United Nations too. So no wonder few leaders have the guts to oppose them.. But then Oblahblah in turn is spied on by his Rothchild's bosses (poor thing!) to ensure he follows his teleprompter A-Z. Hope Congress votes to repair the US image!

The US gov (not the US people!) has no right to appoint itself as the policeman of the world when only as far back as Vietnam, its history is drenched with human rights violations, chemical warfare experiments & ungodly terror. The US should already have started repairing it's bloodstained global reputation. If the UN was the noble tool it was designed to be, it would long since have seen that US criminal president's were brought to justice by the ICC. France should show the guts to develop a voice of it's own again, instead of chorusing the false notes in the US & UK's corrupt warmongering concerto.

The whole problem is people can't cut an honest "win/win" deal. Somebody wants to make a buck on you. Buying a product(materialism) is one thing but we eventually buy into an ideology once material things seem to fail us. Ideology always makes us feel we can't repay the grace that (mysteriously) is given to us (freely). The best we can do, at this point of ideology, is freely give it to others. That's a Win/Win. If I'm forgiven (mysteriously), then I have to forgive you or I'm going to struggle in materialism forever, which means I'm after gain - to your loss and we know we can't rationalize it...So forgive.

I also find it of question that the West wants to tell us that WMDs were used but it's already known that it's not conclusive (inconclusive is what's 100%). That's why Cameron was shot down by Parliament. But the US still says they want to act. US says "we know." But they provide evidence due to national security. I thought you had to provide evidence for national security. This is more than absurdity - this is absurdist. The Absurdist invents meaning as necessary but only proves they're doomed as they rinse and repeat false realities. Amoral, because they're a Nihilist more than anything.

The Syrian government is winning - let's gas our own ppl? How many dead rebels did we find in that suburb? Hmm. Did they(Al Qaeda) pull out and detonate the gas? Perfect timing as UN officials arrive, huh?
I'm glad we didn't shut down Gitmo. We have some Western warmongers to send there. And since this is a time of war, we'll hold them to Military Justice instead of Miranda Rights - since that's how they judge - so be judged under the same.
