Now the american israel controlled government is focused on funding paid killers and other assorted terrorist like they are doing now in Syria and like they did in Libya.The american government knows the american people will never support another war like they were fooled into doing with Iraq.That is their only option.Until the american people stand up and makes their voices heard the wars will never stop.The american people must make their voices heard like they did with vietnam.

Wrong. I'm talking about Sunni majority. Minority can't rule majority. Iraq is the best example.

The american government and israel will never control Syria and neither will their puppet waiting in the wings.The divide and conquer tactic is no longer working in the middle east and you know it as well as israel does.

Do you count how many Christians, or Jews, or Jehovah witnesses, are in Canadian Government? No! You just count them in the countries, where you use peoples' differences to make them believe that someone is privileged to someone else; so that you incite conflicts. It is old colonial tactics, as old as colonialism: Divide and Conquer.

Of course they count in Canada, but you are avoiding my question and choose to deflect to Canada instead of answering. Now you reply like Truth beats himself, is that who you are?

And it is not my business to have a clue, and neither is yours, or Georgeís. It is Syrian internal matter. Non-Western countries have suffered enough from Western disrespect for other countries rights of ownership of their land, and their issues.

Syrians do not count the composition of Canadian Government, and they do not spread on the net their objections to that composition. Why donít you return their civilized behavior to them?

Nice try, deflection is your strongest opposition. Canadian government is not killing 10's of thousands of Canadians because they will not swear allegience to the Prime Minister, now are they, the world is expressing outright distaste for the Syrian butcher, Assad, and if you do not like that well cover your ears. To do nothing about this person is a crime as well, the world should get involved to stop the killing, Assad is out of control and has no idea of how to stop the killing.

Well if you had a terrorist uprising in Quebec and policemen were being murdered and car bombs were going off every day in Montreal you may not be so relaxed about it, don't tell me the full power of the Canadian State wouldn't be mobalized.
