most of us DO actually care who rules, like in the real world examples i gave you.
in fact, there were many, many instances of unrest with the Morsi rule that had nothing to do with the economy. things like jailing journalists and people that had the audacity to speak freely against him.
the real world and history is fun!
hey, i think a big bang re-run is on, better catch it...
hahaha -while i do enjoy the big bang re-runs i didn't say that I don't care who runs things -just that MOST people in my opinion don't care .BTW -how do you know there is a big bang re-run on unless you are watching it lol.

in fact, the people of Syria will not let fundamentalist groups take over their nation. they have had peace their for as long as most of them can remeber and they started this war for self rule. the very moderate (religiously) people of Syria will not give that up to some cult freaks..

well some people ,myself included , don't buy into the "its not a war unless we declare it" nonsense to me an act of war is when one country attacks another -regardless of the stated motivation of said act.
Its like saying i'm black when everyone can clearly see that i am white. Just my personal opinion.

Is there any American who will adopt me?

Or, do you know any place where one can do self-sufficient life in the U.S.?

Hello my friend",...you and I see America and Americans still the most kind hearted people in the world. America has always been first in any calamity to help out substantially, America is a Nation who carss for the world but sad to see that at this juncture, nobody but France wants the carnage to stop in Syria . Man is trully very forgetful and does not have any gratitude for all the good things that Americans and people like Obama have in common. Think again, world !!May God help you to see the light that Obama has lit for people to see. Men , women and Children are beings gassed mercilessly !

By who ? Assad was winning, he had no reason to use chemical weapons... the Al Quaeda rebels on the other hand had every reason to stage such a provocation and frame Assad to drag America into this nasty conflict !!

Now we have America and Al Quaeda fighting on the same side, lol... and not even against super powerful alien invaders like in the movies :p

Its seems (according to BBC) that it is becoming increasing more likely that the USA will take action against the Asad Govt -it says that the support from Congressmen and Senators alike is growing .
So much for doing the will of the people .......
So much for Democracy ........

wow. i guess thw world fogot 911 already and the fact that the USA was attacked for no reason and thousands lost their lives for no reason. that day the world stood with America. now our closest "ally" Britain wont support us. we are more than capable of utterly kicking assads ass with or without help. and who cares what putin or china say or any other nation friend or foe. after 911 iraq fell. afghanistan. libya. now its syrias turn to get curb stompped. i say we keep going. iran and the rest after 911. oh and to putin and china we say stay out of our way.dont like it putin ? too bad. russia is noone to talk. russia has murdered innocents for decades so come get some if you dont like it. throw down or shut up russia and syria its your turn now..USA USA USA.
If you want to find the culprits of 9/11, just take a good hard look at the previous occupants of the white house, how can you still believe that 20 guys with no military and no good pilot training could have pulled off the biggest attack of our time, all orchestrated by a guy living thousands of miles away in a cave? Not even gonna get onto the rest of the mountainous pile of evidence stacking up against the bush administration. Sorry to say that your leader lied to your faces and you believed him, just look at how he acts every time someone even whispers 9/11 at him. And as for going after Iran next dont worry thats already been the plan of the US leaders from day one, they are conducting their very own invasion of the middle east one country at a time.

Thank you my point exactly, why would assad struggle for 2 years against the terrorists and then use these weapons when hes started winning?! It makes no sense at all but there is an endless amount of reasons for why the terrorists would use them,

You, Republicans, top1%, media shaked Obama about Healthcare in order that you, Republicans, top1%, media get money.

You, Republicans, top1%, media shaked Obama about budget in order that you, Republicans, top1%, media get money.

You, Republicans, top1%, media have been trying to rob Obama of Credibility.

And, now. You, Republicans, top1%, media accuse that Obama is shaky???

And, now. You, Republicans, top1%, media accuse that Obama has NO credibility???

This is only just another politics.
You, Republicans, top1%, media must not do politics at the expense of Americans' tax-money and American-soldiers' lives.

You, Republicans, top1%, media are violating American-constitution.

Do you, Republicans, top1%, media want to say that
"Obama is shaky. Obama has no credibility",
but,
"Obama can be strong only against foreign-tiny-pity-country "???

What idea people have about such issues is their business.
The people of France want a referendum and that is the bottom line.
Such issues as getting a country involved in a military operation should first be suggested to the people.
