History will show it is a bad business of Russia to call on the removal of Syria's chemical weapons in order to have USA not to strike it.
It is a bad call business from Russia because the signal shows THAT only forces of pointing guns or using military to people can only work under the threats for demanding people to do anything or surrender, as that also demonstrates the way US does things.
The message is clear--people must do according to what others (like US) say to them, like criminals pointing guns to people to assault or force and rape them.
US is seen as a bad country by using weapons to do abuses and rapes of the world people. US is bad because it cannot have reasoning cause but uses threats all the time to pose insecurity to the world's safety defense.
That is the same way of how violences run wildly and rampantly in US .
By still calling for bad a country US (e.g., to dismantle Syria weapons) is very bad business.
History has shown not the crazy Saddam (no matter how much he was unlikable), but exhibited the insane, crazy Bush from US by using weapons inspection invasion.
History has shown only better militaries and weapons in certain and smaller countries are safer than in US--as US is now like former WWII Japan and Germany.
The business is bad because they think that weapons such as chemical or other sorts like nuclear are dangerous in the hands of Syria, THAT THEY HAVE TO DESTROY THOSE OF SYRIA--having stories just like the Iraq having chemical weapons, or others' like North Korea and Iran for Nukes.
The business is bad because people don't want to see again time after time to go on to do the same thing to dismantle the same thing like Iraq's WMD as this time the other Syria.
History will show, as it demonstrates that they never learn for Iraq, AS it does resemble IRAQ inspection, just as the inspection being alike to A VERY BAD BUSINESS BY BUSH.
Obama calling redline on Syria makes very bad cases these days. US cannot prove it and thinks it will invade any country by exerting its military which poses threats to many countries and people around the world--that tells US is a very rampant and deranged country, to do military all the time in this modern century by picking on others to say to strike and slaughter them (like criminals having weapons to threaten others to do assault and abuses.)
The business is so bad to do again to Syria as if US has not enough of doing the standpoint of DESTRUCTION of the Iraq WMD again.
Because US already has enough big weapons, to call on smaller countries, such as North Korea and Iran having nukes as a threat is ridiculous.
Only big weapons have threats to under-armed countries like NK and Iran, Syria (by needing defense.)
UN is bad business to disarm small countries and not US as its weapons have not been used for defense, but for doing invasion and massacre.
No country is a threat to US, since it already has enough, big military, weapons and nukes.
US military and weapons are constant threats to the world at all time high instead, as it still wants to do lots of wars and to strike others these days, as wanting to do unwanted things like another Hitler after Hitler period.
World History will prove all these to this new world moving to the future.
Weapons in the hands of US are bad, as world history proves that use of weapons and US military is very bad from the time after WWII.
Yet, it has nothing to do with communism, race, cultures and creed--since they have association business for trade with China and Saudi Arabia, nuke weapons by NK and Iran make a safe AND BETTER world, as countries of different race and cultures like France, China, India and Pakistan already have nukes as well.
After WWII, people have been all wrong as no change of world has been done by US. NO country can be a super power that can change the world, from US, China, Russia, or UN in this modern world.
But, human race on the planet can effect the change.
If people can live enough, they will see the change.

Trust me, it is difficult to be sexually attracted to a pure bred Filipina. They must be mixed, and attractive as long as they just stand there and smile. Once they start talking, it will put you off sexually, sound too much like Maria the maid. The overseas ones are fine however.
