Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

I'm not sure who my "bettors" are as we haven't mentioned any wagers (or is that "wagors"?). I've yet to lie, sheldon- by NOT saying what you feel is my role to post, I suppose THAT is what you are refering to. Face it, bob, your only COA is to whine, bitch, complain and attempt belittling insults to people who follow the spirt of Jesus Christ simply because you cannot fathom what His message is. You would prefer people follow the vanity that accompanies intellect- ignoring the peace that is a characteristic of Wisdom- how shallow of you. I pity you.
He might not think you are lying. Quantum Bob, has the worst reading comprehension. It's what makes his post so funny.

In the News - UK on Syria

The British parliamentary rejection of military intervention in Syria Thursday night was not a sign of isolationism or nonchalance over the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, but rather it reflects a necessary use of caution and prudence in these chaotic times.

Coming a decade after the country tumbled headfirst into the disaster which became the Iraq war, the British public is clearly still feeling bruised, reticent to trust their politicians. After the facts and truths were so grossly manipulated back in 2003, and the motive for war was premised on the possibility of the presence of WMD, it is understandable that people are now wary of evidence placed before them. Especially when there are still so many unknowns surrounding last week’s attack east of Damascus, which rebels say killed hundreds.

Indeed, during the lengthy debate in Parliament, MPs referred specifically to the Iraq debacle, a war so ill thought out that it is still claiming hundreds of lives each month in sectarian violence. Once bitten, twice shy.

And this loss of trustworthiness, stemming from a neglect of the values of transparency and openness, is being felt across western Europe and in the U.S., with opinion polls very firmly highlighting public opposition to intervention. The public is sick of war, and full of skepticism over any long-term objectives. It all too often appears that foreign policy advisers are stumbling into decisions, forced into corners due to global allegiances or rivalries. Understandably, people become wary that the best motives are truly influencing these decisions.

But whereas Cameron appeared to have clumsily rushed through a motion, which at least he allowed the opposition to modify, perhaps the U.S. is going to be more careful. John Kerry spoke Friday evening with confidence over intelligence which pointed, without a shadow of a doubt, to the regime being responsible. It was the speech Cameron should have given before his parliamentary vote.

The use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, a claim which the evidence thus far seems to support, is an outrageous act, and the culprits must be punished, as Kerry stated. Those responsible must realize they cannot carry out such acts ever again. But to carry out a punitive strike, to merely satisfy Western consciences, is not the way to do this. Such a crude use of military power, rushed into and poorly planned, with no thought to the repercussions, would do more harm than good. Possibly with this in mind, Kerry was right to assure the public that any intervention in Syria would bear no similarity to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

With an issue as sensitive as this, in a part of the region so critical, the international community must be as scrupulous and as careful as it can be with the facts. It must consider all outcomes of its actions, and have answers on what happens tomorrow. And the war-weary public rightly expects as much.

George W. Bush On Syria:'I Was Not A Fan Of Mr. Assad'

The Huffington Post | By Paige Lavender Posted:

Former President George W. Bush opened up about the situation in Syria on Friday, saying he "was not a fan" of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“He's an ally of Iran and he's made mischief," Bush told Fox News' Brian Kilmeade on Friday morning.

Bush tried to resist when Kilmeade asked about a potential strike on Syria, saying he knew the Fox host was "trying to subtly roll me into the issues of the day."

"I refuse to be roped in," Bush said.

Bush did say President Barack Obama "has to make a tough call" on Syria.

"Putting our military into harm's way is the toughest decision a president will make," Bush said.

Bush said people should learn from 9/11 when considering a potential attack on Syria, noting the U.S. can't ignore what's going on in other parts of the world.

"As time passes, people forget the lessons of September 11," Bush said. "One of the key lessons is the human condition elsewhere matters to the security of the United States."

According to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, most Americans are doubtful that airstrikes in Syria would do much to curb the turmoil there. An NBC News poll released Friday showed 50 percent of Americans said the U.S. should not take action against Syria in response to the use of chemical weapons, while 42 percent supported intervention.

This creationist cult member knows that he is a liar for this cult.

and he wants us all to become like him - a pathetic wastrel who lies all data long to complete strangers in forums, trying to convert em to creationism through bad arguments.

Poor misguided sheldon/bob...the "support the POTUS" forum is >>>thataway. I was raised a little differently than you, bob. In truth, if I wanted to support the Prez, I could do it a lot more than four times- I could do it with e-v-e-r-y post. You know, like you, make stuff up and proclaim it Truth because I said so. So let me get this straight- everyone who responds to you is required to support the POTUS, else the aren't ignoring their Constitutional Right of Freedom of Speech because they do not agree with you- is that about right?

You get the same number of chances to prove you aren't a flaming cross-dressing limp-wristed cheerleader for the allgay sports league, sport. You're going to have to, as I've already testified, proven and pointed out that it's you who is the racist/bigot/hypocrite on this forum. PS- I've supported the President (but like you) in other places.

I think in the real world Bob is a bully. Most likely he has students that wouldn't dare disagree with him. Student that scout him brown nose like crazy. If you want a good grade you roll your eyes every time God is mentioned, and from time to time pronounce it Gawd.
