okay let's add third dimension....we go over there and drop our love bombs and kill a bunch of innocent people spending more money than we have doing it. The end result will surely be more unrest in the region and no matter what we do they will hate us because we are allies with Israel. Wow we are so great for the world....why not just stay out of it all together? What threat do they really pose to the united states? No!

I dont get what sense it makes to punish them for killing people (doesnt even matter how, killing people is killing people) with pretty much doing the same thing. There is absolutely no sense. They're just getting down on their level and thats it. Of course it is terrible what they did in syria but shooting people is just as brutal. In the end the result is that somebody dies, and that is just terrible. Everybody has the right to live. Only heaven,god and whatever you believe in can decide about life or death.

If I was Assad I would release a barrage of chemical weapons right now at all the rebel strongholds. He's is going to be attacked by Obama any way. Why not get one more lick in?
Now a question. Anyone remember the Iran/Irag war in the 80's? Iraq used a $hit load of chemical weapons on the the battle field. Killing tens of thousands of Iranians. What did America do? We supplied Iraq with weapons. Americans were still mad about the hostages thing.
carter and regean , everybody knows even those of us who weren't born yet. Start a thread with the other 5th graders. The united states used chemical weapons in iraq as early as 2004, against civilians. http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/08/the-u-...

Muslims and Jewish people have been at war forever. Hopefully one day they'll all kill each other. The first recorded war was in the Mid East and they've been in a never ending war since..
"The first recorded war occurred in c. 2700 B.C. It was between Sumer (in modern Iraq) and Elam (a region that is now part of Iran), and was fought in the area around Basra (just like the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s). Of course, tribes, cities, etc., had been fighting each other for thousands of years before that, but there are no records of these earlier conflicts as writing wasn't invented until a little before 3000 B.C. "
wake up! We've been committing our assets military and financial at the will of the UN for quite some time now! Especially when we have a democrat as potus !

I think Israel may be just like the united states, the population wants one thing and the government ( supposedly representative of the people) come out and say something totally different...

You shouldn't be at war with anyone you had no reason to invade Afghanistan!!
if you're trying to say they wouldn't exist without the u.s. involvement in the middle east since the 1970s, even current day, I agree. I think we just stay out of it. But it is what you hear on the news, that the rebels are al qaeda and going into syria from iraq. They are probably funded by the US as the article states.

<quoted text>Funny? You speak very childishly. Why are you so unreasonably hate filled toward Israel? They don’t need our tax dollars, for they have God on their side. That tiny nation stands up to the entire crazed Muslim world daily, full of courage, never backing down against any odds, and remains standing. You need to stop letting hatred erode your brain.
we shouldn't aid any conflict in the middle east anymore as it will surely bankrupt us.

The Americans could not sleep and not happy without war. US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel have conspired to destroy Syria by way of arming sectarian extremists since 2007. US, Saudi, Israeli-backed terrorists are now committing a myriad of horrific atrocities against all of Syria’s population, including Sunni Muslims – meaning neither “democracy” nor even “sectarianism” drives the conflict, but rather the destruction of Syria in its entirety.

Jew Leach M23 , is packing up and going home to Rwanda.
But Africa is scoping the Israel of Africa for invasion.
The pillage they have brought to Africa will not go unpunished.
Kagame's genocides , against Tutsis are being investigated by God Himself.
The time has come for tranquility.
Kagame should hang.
He admitted organizing the genocide.
Creating sympathy by slaughtering the innocent.To build an evil empire , that failed.
The Rwandan War was a contrivance with France as the traitor in their midst.
Inciting the Hutu to do the stupid thing .
Just as Sue Loder was doing to me.

And you need to tell the truth which will not be easy for a lying zionist like you. israel got its booty whipped in Lebanon. So they know dang well they cannot beat Syria and Iran and Russia. That is why they gassed those people last week to instigate USA involvement to rescue their lying and evil butts. But nobody can save Israel. They are headed to helll and there is nothing to be done about it.
You have a lot of loose screws in that head of yours. You are very confused.

<quoted text>Since when are Muslims a race? Do you not know a Muslim is a follower of the fanatical religion called Islam? What does that have to do with race? Calling a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group of murderers who are beheading and eating the raw flesh of the Syrians, a pig is hardly racist. I feel it’s an apt description of an inferior human being. I won’t apologize if that has offended you, for I feel the MB is worthy of any insult I can fling at them.
I will “feel free” to debate any time I please. I don’t need the permission of one who has given himself the position of manager of this thread, so don’t hold your miserable breath waiting on me to comply with your inane demand, old boy.
I feel it’s safe to conclude that my education is superior to yours. Furthermore, I couldn’t care less if a supercilious individual such as you feels I lack credibility. Your evaluation of my credibility is of no significance whatsoever.
The term "Muslims Pigs" is 100% racist pal, it doesn't offend me at all thats not the point. Your generalisation of Islam is quite funny though, but some friendly advice, if you want people to listen to your opinions and influence others your racist ignorant and arogant comments isn't going to get you anywhere. You seem pissed that I called you a racist why? Isn't that what your trying to express your hatred for muslims? Thats what you are a racist little twatt
