A happy Good Morning El,
In above we're you referring to the UK
having made the decision NOT to join
USA re responding to dreadful events in Syria?
In a sense, and ...(what would I know ... as a non-military person)
but my gut feeling as a fellow human,
is England made the right Decision
NOT to get involved, as such action will, inevitably mean
MORE killing...
at the same time it's not easy, when one sees the pics
of the outrageous effects of that chemical attack
to stand by and do nothing..
What to do .. Indeed!
from the comments I have heard out of the terrorist groups over the years, they have commented about how outside interference is what made them targets for retaliation .... so it is indeed a big question mark as to whether a country should get involved. For now I think "wait and see" is a good move.

EXCELLENT..
Glancing back thru' past days posts,
This *so needed * to be said.
We all know HOW easy it is to make a typo error
simply by unwittingly striking the wrong key, SO easily done-
and yet ..
all over Topix, when it occurs, one is called, stupid, uneducated, ignorant..
when it's nothing more than a typo error...
Thanks Franko...
In my opinion, the only legitimate word to use is lazy .. as in, too lazy to check and correct typos ... which I am commonly guilty of. Usually you can tell the difference when you read, as to which poster made typos, and which actually cannot spell or does not know proper grammar.

Thanks for replies, El.
I suppose the invasion of Iraq left such bad
feeling in its
trail -
made folks think twice!
I would agree... the weapons of mass destuction were never found, so was the invasion really necessary? No one wants egg on their face and to raise the ire of the international community without real proof. A lot of other countries are also hanging back, so far. Even the USa is still holding back although they did move an aircraft carrier within range..

SCAFFOLDING
One of our great poets ..
and Nobel Prize winner, SEAMUS HEANEY
passed away today.
Here's a poem of his I loved >>
"Masons, when they start upon a building,
Are careful to test out the scaffolding;
Make sure that planks won’t slip at busy points,
Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.
And yet all this comes down when the job’s done
Showing off walls of sure and solid stone.
So if, my dear, there sometimes seem to be
Old bridges breaking between you and me
Never fear. We may let the scaffolds fall
Confident that we have built our wall."
i LIKE IT ... seems like the kind of poem you would write Grace ... when are you publishing your collected works BTW?

Killing about eight thousand Kurds with gas seems like a weapon of mass destruction to me Franko,probably now know where it's ended up."Syria".
I personally don't want to see any more British or American servicemen dying for some Islamic craphole.

The way I see it, we are quick enough to move in when it is a matter of land. Territory.
I'm seeing on another thread the phrase 'The Brits always come
in with us'. It makes me bloody ashamed how this nation has
changed, the British Bulldog has lost it's teeth.

you can thank the gutless scum that have infested Westminster since Maggie for the decline in our way of life and I blame mainly that treacherous Labour Party.
We have always had a good relationship with the USA but I don't feel ashamed about Syria,if you went in and helped the rebels do you think they will thank you for it,there are just as many nutters in them..
My son is still on the reserve and if he gets called up because some coward in Westminster that's never served his country properly sends him there and anything happened to him,I swear El I will do life in prison because no politician would be safe..
You can't help Muslims they are never happy..

Interesting points expressed above about Syria,
I could see there was sense in
what John Kerry meant when
he said
'We can't stand by and be seen to do
nothing about this atrocity
and he also said
'If others with similar ill intention, observe Assad getting away with this,
It will give them the go ahead to use chemical weapons'
But I feel,
'going in there' fighting it out or bombing them,
will-as we all know- most certainly cause more bloodshed,
we all know that.
On the other hand,
If they speak of negotiating,
I wonder HOW one can possibly negotiate
with minds prepared to cause such agonising
deaths to man, woman and child..
In the first place!

Very true Grace...Remember the Gulf War weapons of mass destruction,even though none were found they were used on the Kurds,but people go on about there was no weapons of mass destruction and it was all about oil and we shouldn't have gone in and so on..The thing is Saddam kept the Iranians in check and terrorists were dealt with,same sort of thing with Basil Issad Fawlty..Out there you get rid of one nutter but there is normally a ultra maniac religious nutter waiting to take it's place..

What decision do you think Maggie would have made Krypteia?
It might seem an unfair question but I would be really interested
to know your opinion as a former serving soldier.

John Kerry also described France as their 'oldest ally' didn't he,
forgetting ten years ago when they backed out of Iraq.

Not sure about Maggie there El,must admit she had more balls then all the men that infest Westminster now put together,lol..Say for argument sake she was Cameron I think she would have learnt by pass mistakes about the Middle East maybe,but a good question El....
I just have a problem of our servicemen sacrificing themselves for Muslims.,when I was serving I was on an ops before the first gulf war and saw first hand what this cult was all about..

It's all supposition really, as to what she would have done, but one thing, she made her own decisions, am I right?
Anyway Krytpeia, I cannot argue with someone has seen first hand, more qualified to hold views than such as myself on the side lines.
My grandson is on reserve btw.
It's a waiting game now.
Take care.
