No. What the boneheaded idea about arming Islamic mujahedeen in Afghanistan during the Carter and REagan administrations proved is quite the opposite. The secular Soviet backed regime in Kabul would never have done anything like 9/11. It was no threat to the west. It was only because Washington supported Islamic radicalism that...
Encouraging regime change in the Moslem world only benefits folks like Al Quieda and Hezbollah. We are much better off with the Quadafis and Assads still in...

please, move to russia, or to any eastern country for that matter. Oh, wait, the lifestyle, the money, the freedom, all to good here. If you think the eastern countries are so being victims of the west then move there, insert your wisdom and manpower to change it.
No, its easier to sit here on your fat ass in a comfortable reclyner warm home, hidden behing a computer, and complain.
Its traitors like you that need to be shot.
Better yet, move in with demetrii, you two make a perfect couple.

Are you suggesting it rational for NATO to rain death on cities from the air but only in small weak nations unable to defend themselves? Is that not criminal?
I was just commenting on the concept of nuclear weapons, where did you see i was suggesting such a thing about NATO ?

I think the time was not that wrong for the west to capitalize on Libya as the mighty Russia and China have admiited of their strategic blunder. But in case of Syria, Iran they both mighty ones have positioned themselves militarily to go even big bang(even nuclear thing well talked of by both).

I can only pray and wish for peace and de- escallation of the hostilities any where in middle East. Even Turks are not as hot as they were couple weeks ago and even the mightiest America is not stepping in as it did in Libya case.

I AGAIN EMPHACIZE PEACE. IF BY FOLLY, WE SLIP INTO WW3, THERE WILL BE END OF OUR LOVABLE AND SWEET HUMANITY-- ALL HUMANITY.WE HAVE TO QUIT BEING BELLICOSE AND START TALKING PEACE AND LOVE FOR ALL PLACES AND ALL PEOPLE.THE ISSUE IS NOT JUST SYRIA ALONE, THE DANGER IS THAT IT IS AIMED AT RUSSIA- CHINA BEING BROUGHT DOWN THROUGH SOME VERY COMPLEX EQUATIONS. WE WISH GRANDNESS TO AMERICA AND EUROPE TOO AND PLEASE WORK ON LINES OF PEACE AS WE WILL ALL WIN ONLY THROUGH PEACE. BURRY THE HATCHET AND BRING OUT YOUR LOVELY FLOWERS FOR OUR ALL PRETTY AND BEAUTIFUL MANKIND.
