I think they are content as long as they are killing each other.
I think that the media just simply does not want to bring up the thug culture. To point out the problem is to demand solutions that the liberal media and sadly,(IMO) black leadership do not want to face. For instance, the liberals do not want to acknowledge the role that the "great society" played in the destruction of the black family. They don't want to criticize gangstga rap. They don't want to emphasize the tremendous number of young unmarried women with children. They don't want to shine the light back at the black community and assess some of the blame on them. They would rather blame whitey as in the case of Paula Deen. Until the problem of the poor, fatherless, drug hampered, gang banging and rap infested city youth is addressed the killing will continue.

Want an example of how black leaders, including President Obama and Eric Holder are closing their eyes on inner-city black children? Louisiana has a voucher program aimed at allowing children to escape poor schools. The vouchers do not take money from the national government or state educational funds. In order for the parents to use vouchers their school district must be failing. Most of the parents who are taking advantage are black. Yet Holder is trying to force Louisiana to dismantle the voucher system. Young black kids will be forced back into failing schools. OBAMA AND HOLDER SHOULD BE PUSHING FOR VOUCHERS TO BE THE LAW OF HE LAND. But the teacher's unions oppose vouchers and unions are supporters of Democrats. Politics over kids?

You are assuming the lies posted by racists are true. They are not.
Trayvon had a right to defend himself from the man who followed him, got out of his vehicle and chased him down.
The SCRATCHES on Zimmerman's head prove he did NOT hit the concrete. Anyone who has ever kissed concrete knows it's a trip to the ER with a concussion.
Zimmerman deserves to be marked for life. Shellie will dump his ass soon and all he will have is O'Mara.
It is obvious you have no clue as to what was testified to in the trial by the forensic examiners and the man who wrote the textbook on forensic science.
You guys keep saying that Trayvon had a right to attack Zimmerman. OK, let's say he did have that right, and that is why he attacked Zimmerman. That being said, Trayvon attacked so violently and relentlessly, that he managed to hand Zimmerman the right to shoot him in the process.

What is the big fuss by saying chemical weapons, Syria, all day long BY US?

In the first place, there are absolutely not any ground and solid evidences that the small number of people dying from any chemical weapons poisoning WAS a result from WHICH ONE--the regime or rebels OR ANY TROUBLE-MAKERS TO WANT TO EXPLOIT BADLY ABOUT SYRIA. If rebels had to kill others by poisoning some people in order to gain the stand for support of them, that is highly immoral, criminal and wrongful for those others like Obama to go with them.
If they say the Syria regime had used chemical weapons, so is what, as there is no clear proof?
BY talking about chemical weapons, some of the toxic CHEMICAL WEAPON gases might not be that effective. MANY poisoned chemicals that people are facing in everyday life, MAKE at least hundreds to thousands of people die from their poisoning each day around the world. Everyday, there are more people dying from drunk-driving accidents globally than the number of people they say dying form chemical weapons so far in Syria.
In other words, chemical weapons had not killed so many people even if they were used through this civil unrest in Syria all along for these years THAN THE EVERYDAY KILLING OF PEOPLE FROM ALCOHOL AND OTHER toxic CHEMICALS THEY ARE FACING WITH--SO WHAT IS THE FUSS?
It makes no sense by calling chemical weapons, by not saying that Agent Orange, toxic chemicals and alcohols as not weapons, because the instant, immediate effects and side and eventual effects of cancer causing nature OF THESE CHEMICAL AGENTS are detrimental.
So, it is a total failure and loser business by labeling chemical weapons about Syria.
But, it is questionable that US military has any proper stand in moving toward Syria as this is very wrong.
Now, what happens is that US can't do one single thing about Iraq by forced invasion, that US has to withdraw based on that. So what does it want to do with Syria now when it did very badly in Iraq?
If US says of chemical weapons, US or UN inspectors can't prove whoever used them by pointing to Syria regime, to do air strike, that is indeed the US sickening terror. This will be fired back from the world now as before such US acts will be punished by the world, while US is going through the harms by taking damages.
If just going by air strike, what is the point of killing innocents, as US can never find out if Syria has amounts of chemical weapons, by doing ugly and awful terror?
But, if US uses ground troops, then it might not be effective for a long haul, which is too large scale and too long to engage in, whereas people have suffered too much by then, with much resources and direction for the future destructed.
IF US is crazy enough and goes all the way for high costs to go for much more with vast ground troops, US will have to meet global forces fighting along side with Syria that US will suffer devastating losses this time, as no Iraq case will ever take place again.
Only Provided no world forces go that far, even if US can get to the stage to the Syria regime with whatever losses and costs in the final long length which is too much for US already, US finds none of chemical weapons from Syria regime possession--this is extremely disastrous and costly for US.
What makes the global people and stands, as such now that would allow US to do that, by slaughtering lots of civilians and its soldiers even with too much US costs and losses, for finding out nothing and anything that is real and true as it says of chemical weapons about Syria.
If US does not lose out by now, THIS IS A SICKENING, RIDICULOUS ILL WORLD for US IS.
The world has a lot of problems right now, without permitting US to make some more, that US is taking and making a lot of problems for itself because US is a troublesome country which does not know one single thing and always does things wrongly for its people's harms and sufferings.
US IS A TRASH WORLD as US IS showing as is, simply as that.

France says British vote does not change its will to act over Syria
Full story: Reuters

Check it out from the above report, that France has lots of Islam and Muslims that it might want to fight against Christians in Syria,

As France is eager to take over US about Syria, yet no US and France together can withstand the mighty universal forces to melt them out.
As Britain even disapproves it, that will be in UN too, people can see the disastrous damages US and France are taking.

Yet, what is so bogging and bugging US as far as chemical weapons matter and Syria that they raise the matter?

Why is that, as what is so troubling them by feeling upset Syria fighting rebels as Outlaws in Syria, that they want to be apart of the fight?

Well it sure looks like Obama is going to get us into another war in the Middle East, this time with Syria. We're going to spend billions of dollars supporting the rebels.
Then the rebels will eventually be overrun by radical islamic extremists. Syria will still remain a jihadist stronghold and will pose an even greater threat to the region.
It will be a repeat of the Libian debacle.
In the meantime, Obama will allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons. But Israel won't allow that to happen. When they strike at Iran the world will suffer economic collapse due to the inevitable spike in the price of oil.
Irans oil supply will be taken out of the equation.
Obama will definitely go down in history as the most hated president of all time. He will make George Bush look like a god.

You are the dead ghost by talking about Obama even.
You must be another racist then.
Obama will go down in history is not because of you being a racist, while it is because of you as a dead ghost crawling into US.

That US is in destructive mode going down is because Obama is affected to do bad things to be destructive to US and people there, with dead ghost like you there.

YOU seem to speak in a volatile way as you don't know by making gambling even as a DEAD GHOST.

Obama is too fragile and wrong, that his acts are diminished by many of those implementing global truth and universal forces.

It's clear that Congress is not going to approve any military action against Syria. So their point man, John Kerry, is laying the groundwork for an illegal strike.
The Israeli's are scared to death because Assad has threatened a retalitory strike agaainst Tel Aviv if the US intervenes in Syria. They're passing out gas masks like they're going out of style.
We should never get involved in other nations civil wars.
Haven't we learned anything from the past?
Well since it is the UN calling the shots these days for our military, they are playing the same game that is going on right here stateside as they play one group against another in their smokescreen to enslave us all. The only difference here is that the playing field is bigger, and the groups have different titles and clothing and languages. We (the USA) be one of those groups being played.
