We need to LEAVE THEM ALONE! They lay down without a fight. Allow themselves to be slaughtered like animals, because they are not modern humans.
How can anyone watch that crap and think for one second that those creatures have sense enough to mingle in today's world?
I am sick sick sick of watching our own helpless and weak suffer while resources and our young and promising real lives are poured like liquid gold into these heathen countries.
Yes I'm on a rant.
What kind of person lays down in the dirt and allows someone to hack their freaking head off? None of them should be taking up space and breathing air.
Build a wall, toss them inside and let them eat each other till they go extinct.
Dear God, I wish I hadn't watched that.

You are correct Dudedad. >Blush<
I get vehement when I see these films of people living and behaving like wild animals. In 2013! Civilization seems to be going backwards. The babies in the NK film...digging in the mud.
Starving while that fat little ---- shakes his pecker in a threat to the rest of the world. That upset me too...
Now I'm off again... needs to go take my BP medicine.. Thank you for your genteel and civilized reminder. It is appreciated.:) <3

After the meeting, French foreign minister Laurent Fabius said there was agreement that all indications point to the Assad regime being responsible for a gas attack in Damascus that may have killed more than 1,400 people.

the world should not be "spectators to slaughter", but said President Obama had not yet decided whether to wait for the UN inspection report before taking action.

wow... a jump

which, by the way, was not the issue at hand

i was responding to the "modern human" and "build a wall" statements to be specific... i just found it distasteful and not very humane the way you "dehumanized" these people and made it sound like it was their own fault they were being exterminated.

What in this event does the US stand to gain by striking empty military bases, destroying empty hangers, and cratering the runways that service the aircraft who are no longer in those hangers. We won't target Assad himself, the US does not assassinate heads of state. We have no clear military objective and should Assad fall we do not have a plan to assist what remains of the Free Syrian Army to win the power struggle that will erupt with the Islamic extremist groups whom they have been forced to ally themselves with.
At least in Libya there was an objective and a plan, we can all see how that is working out.

I see the Warmonger In Chief is making the rounds, hitting the weekend news shows in hopes he can sway votes towards Congressional blessing for attacking Syria. What was that Nobel Prize for, again?

How can he expect us to go along with him on this? He's spent 5 years telling us everything Bush did was wrong and so he's going to do what Bush did now because its the right thing to do?

Excuse me, 1st define US.

&#9658; Assassination of James A. Garfield&#8206;

&#9658; Assassination of John F. Kennedy
&#8206;
&#9658; Assassination of Abraham Lincoln&#8206;

&#9658; Assassination of William McKinley&#8206;

Although the Cold War was not yet over, the Libyan raid became the model military action and legal precedent upon which many post-cold war attacks would be based. The lines between formal war and peace were no longer clear—the United States had indicated its intent to use deadly force against foreign leaders, even in peacetime, should they pose a threat to the nation. The use of more overt methods such as an airstrike, however, marked a shift away from the cloak-and-dagger schemes of the Cold War. Instead of covertly working to end a leader’s life, America would strike openly, with gun camera footage visible to all on CNN the next day.

This strategy was to be employed against Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1991 Gulf War. As part of the air campaign leading up to the ground war, coalition strike aircraft hit 580 command and control sites from which Saddam might control his forces and another 260 “leadership targets” that included his palaces and other buildings he was known to frequent.172 Publicly, senior American leaders continued to deny that Saddam was an official target of the campaign. General Norman Schwartzkopf stated repeatedly that the United States does not “have a policy of trying to kill any particular individual,”173 but President George Bush was more ambivalent:“We’re not in the position of targeting Saddam Hussein,” he commented,“but no one will weep for him when he is gone.”174 Administration officials were so sensitive to the suggestion that they were targeting Saddam that Secretary of Defense Richard Cheney fired Air Force Chief of Staff Michael Dugan, who had the poor judgment to boast that the United States would “‘decapitate’ Iraqi leadership by targeting Saddam, his family, and even his mistress.”175

If we had really known, Hitler was gassing 6 million humans, what would we have had to gain by stopping it?......If we had known Pol Pot would slaughter 3 million of his own people, what would it matter to us....nothing to gain, by stopping him, eh?.....

Oops! Last word, although that might be true,
discretion is the word I was looking for.

But if the shoe fits?
