Hey, you brought up nut sacs, since my handle has nothing to do with scrotums I'm assuming that you have an unnatural endearment towards them, so much so you see references to them where none exist.
Hunglo has nothing to do w/your scrotum?

It would be so great if I knew wtf you were talking about...?

This thread is about Syria and Assad's use of chemical weapons
on unarmed civilians. Is that something that the German ppl
condone?

Post 234 "Comrade Putin, I didn't know that you had a topix account. Have you met the Ferret yet? You'd like him."

Nothing homosexual about it, I only mentioned Ferret because he is as anti-America as you seem to be. It was you who brought any homosexual inuendo into the conversation. Your memory is as faulty as my so-called Presidents.

As of yesterday 2 million ppl have fled from their homes,
and the fighting, to Jordan, Turkey, and surrounding areas.
America is sending the most aid for these ppl.
But these "camps" are only a temporary fix. A solution will
have to be reached soon or many more will die.
I was just talking to a friend who was in the Egyptian army

he would like to see the US take out the air strips, when I asked about artillery delivery of chemical weapons he shrugged his shoulders

to him disabling the air capability sends a message to Iran, Russia and others that chem. weapons will not be tolerated

punching some holed in runways won't solve anything, too easy to fix imo

I suppose some Germans are very comfortable with ChemWeaps. THEY initiated using them in combat in WWI,and later on a MASS scale in the concentration camps during WWII...... On unarmed civilians.

The trouble with hitting airfields is that they are defended by Russian Air Defense Systems,manned by Russian crews.

Artillery,like Armor is a target of opportunity. Meaning you have to find it as it's being used. Being highly maneuverable,it can be difficult to pinpoint in a given time frame after its identified by ground forces.

The fact is that with all of the public screwing around on this issue any target of military value is now dispersed and hidden. Airfields may be the only targets left that can't be stashed in a barn or a cave somewhere in the countryside.

if the US wants to intervene the best thing they could do is instead of supplying terrorists with guns an use drone strikes that kill mostly civilians, they could drop off food, water and bulletproof vests etc, to the people caught in the crossfire.
What they've planned...is dropping a series of huge bombs, directly on the location of Basheir Al Assad, his family and subordinates......

What we are looking at is the consequences of having a Wanna-be tough guy running our Foreign Policy. A question I asked on another thread was how much should it cost America to assuage Obama's bruised ego? Right now his handlers are telling him to keep his big mouth shut and let THEM figure it out.......

Meaning? Are you suggesting we use a $1.6 million Cruise missile to knock out a $50,000 cannon? That may not even be there when the Missile gets to where the cannon WAS reportedly used. You blow up a lot of sand,kill a few of the wrong folks and waste a valuable asset for no result.

Since Apr. 10, 1975? Multiple times during the Iran-Iraq war, technically during the Falklands War, although no lethal agents were used, but then if we include that then every-time that the US or another government has used tear gas against civilians they are guilty of the same crimes as Assad.

Except for human testing, gas/chemical warfare wasn't common. The Japanese used some on the Chinese.

1936 Italians Use Mustard Gas Bombs in Ethiopia! ethiopian-history/1936-italian s-use... Italy's aggression war in Ethiopia, with use of poison gas and mustard gas bombs.

The fifth president of Iraq Saddam Hussein was internationally known for his use of chemical weapons in the 1980s against Iranian and Kurdish civilians

Regarding last week’s Fact Checker sidebar, Mark Nelson of Sparks wrote,“(Fact Checker) said that since Ted registered for the draft and did not go to Canada, he is not a draft dodger. A quick Google check shows the definition of a draft dodger is someone who ‘evades compulsory military service.’ It says nothing about Canada or failure to register. By his own admission, Nugent faked symptoms and used drugs to keep from being drafted. Nugent is a draft dodger.”
