More serious than author Richard Dawkins.
UK and US may be moving toward intervention in Syria.

-BBC-
Prime Minister David Cameron and President Barack Obama spoke on the telephone for 40 minutes on Saturday. Both were "gravely concerned" by the "increasing signs that this was a[n]... attack carried out by the Syrian regime", Mr Cameron's office said.

David Cameron and Barack Obama moved the west closer to military intervention in Syria on Saturday as they agreed that last week's alleged chemical weapon attacks by the Assad regime had taken the crisis into a new phase that merited a "serious response".

"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own -- a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotisms."

(Albert Einstein, Obituary in New York Times, 19 April 1955)

or maybe:

"A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death."

Albert Einstein called himself an agnostic, while disassociating himself from the label atheist, preferring, he said an "attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being.

Sadly, I don't think his mental abilities rise to the "lofty" measurement of "troll".

He is something less than that; something that wouldn't pass your basic Turing test of intelligence.

Kinda sad, really-- he lacks even the consistent idiocy of a godbot.

You easily duplicate his output with a random search-word generator and a web-script ....

Syrian Crisis is real as your Junior High

Turkey has stockpiled food and gas masks in its provinces along the Syrian border, stepping up measures against a possible chemical attack from the Syrian side, the Prime Ministry's Disaster and Emergency Management Directorate (AFAD) has announced.

Ankara is on a red alert after the recent chemical weapons attack against civilians in Syria and has taken “all measures” against any chemical attack, AFAD said on its official Twitter account on Thursday. AFAD said officials had designated bunkers at seven areas along the border to protect the people in the area from harm.

It also said a hundred chemical weapons experts have been dispatched to border provinces to investigate if the toxic gas that was recently used in Syria has affected Turkey or not.

Right after gas was used in an attack on Aug. 21 in Syria, killing more than 1,000 and injuring many more in Damascus, Turkey reinforced its defensive measures against any chemical attack along the Syrian border due to the threat of chemical weapons from the war-torn country.

Following the chemical gas attack in the Damascus suburb, an AFAD official said approximately 400 chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) specialists working within AFAD had started conducting extra exercises in Turkey's southern and southeastern provinces of Hatay, Kilis and &#350;anl&#305;urfa as a measure to contain any chemical attack from Syria.

According to the plan, the team, which is prepared for an immediate chemical attack from Syria, has been making every effort to reduce the risk of such an incident. In the event of a chemical attack, CBRN teams will arrive in the danger area with special clothing and equipment to create a secure area. Any people who have been exposed to the attack will be removed from danger and the area will be decontaminated. With the support of health units, those exposed will be cared for by first responders and then sent to hospitals.

Foreign Minister Ahmet Davuto&#287;lu also announced on Wednesday that related units have taken all security measures over not just a possible chemical attack but also over all possible threats that could come from Syria, adding that the measures will continue.

Has Richard Dawkins made any comments on Syria?

US set for Syria strikes after Kerry says evidence of chemical attack is 'clear'

John Kerry advanced what he called a "clear and compelling" case that Syria was responsible for a chemical attack that killed nearly 1,500 people, in a statement on Friday that made clear the US was on the verge of military strikes against the Assad regime.

Speaking in a blunt terms, the US secretary of state branded the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad a "thug and a murderer", and said the United States could not stand by and let a dictator get away with such serious crimes.

"History will judge us all extraordinarily harshly if we turn a blind eye to a dictator's wanton use of weapons of mass destruction," Kerry said in a briefing to reporters at the State Department in Washington.

Speaking soon after, Barack Obama said that he was considering "limited, narrow action" against Syria. "We can not accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale," he said.

Pointedly, Kerry made no mention of the decision by the British government to pull out of the coalition, after prime minister David Cameron lost a crucial vote in the House of Commons on Thursday. Instead, Kerry referred to France as the "oldest ally" of the US, after president François Hollande pledged support for military action against Syria.
