Couldn't agree more Krypteia ! The US has been in Iraq more than 10 years (conventional wisdom said we'd be out in 6 months .... right!), the USA is still in Afghanistan - also more than 10 years, and I thought N Korea was a bigger international threat, or threat to US security than Syria.<quoted text>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.
There's lots of places throughout the world to invade for 'humanitarian' reasons. How thin should the US military be spread?
