i dont think chemical weapons differ from cluster bombs, nuclear bombs, and cruise missiles if you DIE BY THEM

Thi s is not a hollywood movie where heroes & villains are pre-defined. The world is much more complex place where international laws, ethics, national sovereignty, economic factors etc are all mixed in this crucible of a globalized context. So, please, enough with this oversimplification of the world.


yes, and the only people affirming this military operation must be israelis, paid to manipulate public oppinion, but the poor jews.... they are too few

Should a dictator be allowed to gas his own people in order to hold power against the will of a majority? Yes or no. It is not a difficult question.


are you an israeli jew paid to seed desinformation and nosense on the net?

This is incredible! We know from Iraq wikileaks docs and the NSA info from Edward Snowden that all this is set up by all governments! They are all in on it!

What a bunch of BS! Saudis gave chem weapons to Syria rebels through US!

This is really for Israel! Israel wants to blow up it's enemies.

I am sick of Israel and their destructive ways. Why are we partners with them? They are constantly killing Palestinians!

So whats in it for Russia?. The strategic importance of the port at Tartus is the last bastion of Russian power in the region and this, along with Iran, is the true target of western intervention in Syria.

Russia will be thinking hard about Tartus . But one thing we can all be assured of is the fact that they are thinking sensibly about it.

The Russians are not "monkeys playing with hand grenades " , they are a calm voice of sanity that truly understands the bigger picture.

Always slow to anger, but don't suffer fascists gladly.

Its a good question . Firstly, no country should ever declare war on a whim. Quick kneejerk reactions regardless of the scale of the situation in Syria and the Middle East in general can and, if recent history is our guide, quickly become an unintended catastrophe for the country that commits itself to intervention.
Like it or not, there must be a beneficial incentive before any sensible country makes that decision . The West's was oil. But , as we all know, they are far from being sensible and was it really that beneficial?.

You just have to admire these Zionist/ Jesuit- controlled warmongering Anglo-Saxon nations for their shameless, demented and maniacal pursuit of death, destruction and pillaging of everything that is good in this world.

This fact has been all too evident over the years but to see these proxies (US, UK, Canada, Australia, France...) of the Rothschild banking clan revealing their true colours in such a blatant fashion as over Syria makes me wonder if their plans for a New World Order have run into difficulties.

But Good shall prevail and all of these evil Zionist/ Jesuit terrorists will soon be annihilated by God.

"The comments [accusing the regime of using chemical weapons] made by politicians in the West and other countries are an insult to common sense" Assad said. The comments are for domestic consumption so common sense is not required when speaking to americans. They are an ignorant people that are easily manipulated by the media.

Tho se cowards would not dare. N.


The only cowards are the US and NATO ghouls who only ever attack tiny countries with 10th rate equipment, preferably after they've already been weakened by years of sanctions, civil war and by proxy armies.

Last time the US fought anyone that was reasonably well supported was Vietnam and a country 12 times smaller in pop managed to give it such an as-s kicking they kept quiet for a decade showing their manhood by defeating Grenada.

US hasn't won a war against a half decent opponent since WW2 so it's nothing new.

Those cowards would not dare. Neither do they and Iran have the power to fight the entire military force of NATO, Israel and the Arab League combined.
