Maybe one should define the West? are we talking of the people of the Western World (as compared to third world) or the criminals who are running the countries of the Western world. All wars of the 20th Century involved three countries: France, England and the US. Most of them were imperialstic and all of them were about grabbing assets or markets. Nothing has changed. Stealing is the purpose of empires. Any wonder why the victims all over the world are not too enthusiastic about their oppressor. One can argue that the "West" brought "civilisation" on the Third World, however at any one time, civilisation was the patrimony of the Third World, while Europe was made of cave men with a big club. I am sure nobody hates the West per se, however a sense of justice make us admit that what the so-called West, represented by the Wall Street and London banksters and their military
henchmen , are doing is not Justice at all. But the joke in on the West after all as the empire is now invading the home countries. The idiotic colonialists beeing colonised...What a joke! And the legions of the West made of Third World soldiers... When Rome collapsed 90% of the graves in the capital were those of foreigners...

It is hatred live with it Rtloder.
As for pollution China burns coal at an appalling rate dirtiest cities in the world are over there.
Population control? lol try China and India.

Yes but hatred is the necessity of symbiosis, in order to survive I advocate that kind of hate. It's not wrong to want for the better even when it is too late, take for example a worm, about to be engulfed by the bill of a duck the worm hates the duck, adverse to that the duck loves the worm, then a hunter shoots the duck who releases his hold on the worm.
Is it wrong of me to hope for a hunter when the worm is the world and the duck is the Western World?

China is polluting badly there is no choice, it's too bad we didn't promote one child policy, and plan with housing complexes as a part of the factory.
But what needs to be done right away is to stop fighting. How about elections in Syria, if people vote for Assad then the terrorists in Mali will be undermined.

India is paragon of people who believed in the West, consequently they got the most inappropriate social and economic development possible, China is much better. But the worst world of all is the world of Avenger.

Assad doesn't take on foreigners, that's why the Russian evacuation is taking so long, apparently Assad wants them out
and they want to stay.

Your getting worse instead of better, but don't be alarmed "soon", would your flower fade away anyway, weather you were deserted or not. It happens to everyone, actually it happened to the Pentagon yesterday. They were deserted by that urge we all get to be CONSISTENT.

That's right, their Spokesman Mark Toner voiced support for the King of Jordan, in spite of the massive demonstrations, calling for freedom from Monarchical Dictate. The crowds were dispersed with water cannon, tear gas, rubber bullets and truncheons.
Martyred one of their number.

We don't want your sham elections, all the seats are gerrymandered, but above all we don't want you ruling over us.
Avenger! King Abdullah should relinquish his power. But Obama is no longer interested in supporting Arab Spring. So he said to the peaceful demonstrators, "go and bite your numb bloody bum.

Ignorant, these are border adjustment wars; family squabbles. Orion is talking about Imperialistic wars; based on greed, and involving subjugation, oppression, and steeling. These are true wars.

Here is a free speech forum, and anybody can say what he or she wants. Nobody owes you anything: to agree with you, or to give you any evidence. If you need evidence, go and find it. As for people, leaving Brittan on your order; you seem to suffer from ‘Delusion of Grandeur.’ You behave like you own this sight, and Brittan.

What Chris really means is anyone that supports Assad and the regime has freedom to voice an opinion everyone he would like to have removed from the forum.

This is hardly evidence that says they are financing a civil war, binoculars and radios are hardly weapons. So are these the same criminals who offer you free nhs, education for kids, equality, litter free streets, and the freedom for you to call them criminals without being shot?? If you aren't happy with the way England is being run why on earth do you live here and pay taxes???

So please stop your hypocrisy, you believe the country is run by criminals then leave. Also find me some real evidence the uk is financing a war and I may believe you. I wish they did finance the war then that wanker the real criminal would be gone for good.

Hi Dominic, it does get frustrating trying to get these imbesciles to read articles and accept what they read, their minds are so tainted with conspiracy theories that they cannot see or believe the truth.

Sorry George I forgot we aren't allowed to curse the regime, it is a sin. Does this guy 'Chris' actually knows the meaning of free speech? Perhaps he should learn how to spell
