The poster who got " - " " + " are divided. Intentionally it has been done with a purpose but it won't be very effective, the posters and readers knew what they are reading :-)

Wait a minute -- let me see if I got this right?
- The US supplies CW to Al Qaeda.
- AQ death squads use their CW on Syrian army and civilians.
- Meanwhile, Syria has never used CW.
- Therefore: Syria must give up its CW deterrent.
Can somebody please help me out here -- have I got it straight, or have if I have made a slip in reasoning somewhere?

Russia is on the rise as the great peacemaker. The trusted broker that serves world peace interest first.

@Krispy. I completely agree. Looking at this specific group online though. They're not to bright. Their motivation is obvious. They simply follow perception. Which is greatly used by all Intelligence Agencies. They follow whatever is similar to their opposing views. Leading them to more false propoganda. Looking at IP addresses here. Most are European, American, Middle Eastern. haha. LMFAO! Who would have thought these... ahhh nevermind. So, like I said. Perception. All of the anti-people lead the propoganda in the online world. Believe it or not. However, it does make it easier to identify the good from bad.

@ R, agreed. Best to not trust just one source of news. I may not like Fox very much but still check there to see what the political maniacs are thinking.


MEJ is too silly to realize that President Putin is a mile to the right of Fox News, and so is rt for that matter.

the world domination of the oil.


Has nothing to do with the oil! The U.S. has so much oil, they are starting to have a "supply glut". The Gulf, the Great Plains, the North Dakota shale, the Alaskan oil fields...35% of all oil consumed in the USA is from domestic sources.

The other sources? Canada is the largest exporter of oil to the USA, 28% of their use. Saudi Arabia is the 2nd largest exporter, accounting for 13%. The 4th and 5th are Mexico and Venezuela, with 10% and 9% respectively.

So 73% of the USA oil use is from North America sources.

That is why I stop watching BBC News & CNN and only watch RT News where telling the truth is its motto.


Proceed with caution on that. I personally don't agree much with RT, but I pass by the check their news cause i feel like im getting both sides of the story by reading from several news sources instead of just 1.

The comments are by far the most hilarious part though. There are some very angry and intolerant people who post here. Im amazed how much some people can just hate.

Dedicate all the military capacity, intelligence, and power to HEAL the planet and bring harmony , hope and PEACE. the planet can't stand any longer the mess we are in....we have just to WAKE UP!.....LOVE.

The US is a typical bully - only targetting isolated nations that are much weaker than itself. A bully's aggressive posturing quickly turns to cowardly withdrawal when challenged by a peer.

Russia has challenged the bully US, that now wishes a 'diplomatic solution' to the Syrian civil war it has created, armed and fueled.

Whe n will Russia and China stop appeasing and excusing the US' childlike spoiled brat behaviour and give it the firm smack on the behind it desperately needs.
