That's interesting.

So, you're proposing that the SAMS that we were crating up for Syrian terrorists were stolen by the MB and are heading back to Egyptian terrorists?

Don't tell that to Washington, their circuits might overheat and finally blow.

Now is the time to act people! Start moving your $$ into Haliburton and Company. The private defense sector is about to get another huge boost. If you wanna make some $$ you should already know where to put your dollars!

We can always rely on NATO to throw gasoline onto an already raging fire!

The 1% who control everything don't care!

Their greed is all that counts.

How Zionist is that? LOL.

Too funny. Weeeeeeeee Weeeeeeeee

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.

Yes, you use exchange rates that will be in flux during the war to again make more $$. The dollar is weak, you must flip it into better assets. Unless you are in for the long haul; in that case you need to move to more convential means in the defense sector:

Ammo and CS gas manufacturers
Oil companies with their new Oil contacts
Cyber offence companies (like startford)
or private armies (blackwater)

All of these companies are about to make a great deal of $$!

Silver maybe, Gold is a long term investment. It is also in a bubble but it is one of many current bubbles and will most likely be the last one to burst!

Silver is priced very nicely currently and you can make a quick buck there but nothing like you will make with the defense sector right before another war!!!

Sad to say M8. You have a point! History shows when an economy is nearing collapse(for instance the Dollar), war is the only way out for the 1%. Reminds me of Nazi Germany.

How does it make them "terrorist" because they're fighting for freedom??
The Real terrorist is Assad who fires missiles and kills innocents!!!
] Freedom, my foot! They are nothing but hellish monsters who behead and eat the raw flesh of human beings. They are the terrorists and freedom is a concept totally foreign to the animals. The killing of innocents is an everyday happening with the Muslim Brotherhood, not Assad. For an American President and the American Congress to support such scum as the Muslim Brotherhood is a disgrace and Americans should demand they stop their disgusting support of the MB, who resemble demons from Hell instead of freedom fighters. Putin is right and he sees the MB rebels for what they are ----stomach turning terrorists.

This first step of knocking out Syria must take place for the survival of Israel and God's Children. The final step is Iran, the arch enemy of Israel. It is not about gas, it is about Israel, we do want anymore Holocaust nor Masada.

America is not the world's police force. Israel is not a friend of America. God's children, too funny.

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. "

I hope your serious if you are then morbid obesity has got a hold on you.
I know you are not brotherhood so must be Salafi although distant at the moment ,
We agree let Allah decide.
If the Jew cu*t put you in power , it must be then we unite to fight to survive in the new State .
Bit I think we will loose .
Iraq and Turkey will oppose it , as well as the Kurds, they will side with the Jew like your doing now .
But to me death is only the beginning , the civilization Allah Created I'd finished anyway.
And who knows maybe we will prevail..

I'm for supporting Israel, but if by "knocking out Syria" you mean to topple the present government by means of the Muslim Brotherhood, you need to revise your thinking. The Muslim Brotherhood is a far bigger threat to Israel than the Al-Assad government, as you will see if the disgusting rebels win the war.

Relax there is not going to be any strikes against Syria, its a ploy to try and scare Assad. The Brits and Yanks are already changing their timeframe after the UN has revealed their evidence. I guaranty that the UN findings will conclude that they found evidence but cannot prove who used them. Then there will be no strikes and who ever did the atrocities will get away with it scott free!
