Just blowing off steam!
Leave well enough alone!
The Mid east has been fighting over who killed my chicken, that's my rock, your religion is wrong, you wear funny cloth for over a 1000 years.
Why do we (the west) got to start a world war over nothing. LET THEM work it out!

Not feeling any better but I said it.

Rarely are these issues black and white....always messy.

I'm not a big fan of the current American administration, but think what happened was more/less correct the better decision in a very complicated and messy situation. To do nothing would be worse... I look at those people overseas in Syria as our fellow man. And for a state to chemically gas their own people is contrary to international law..its fundamentally immoral.

America/UK/France made a precision strike, and warned Syria not to do it again..and it looks like Russia was informed beforehand to mitigate the potential of a larger conflict spilling over. All in all...it looks like a success. No civilian casualties and only chemical plant and storage destruction.

Wow. Guys.... just Wow.

By now, you should all know, any time the US....er, I mean NATO mentions chemical weapons and unspeakable evil, just assume you are being played, conned, suckered, used, bent over without being kissed first.

Just stop....before deciding to be "Good Men" saving us from "Evil". That usually ends in finding out you are the enactor of evil.

"Good Men" saving us from "Evil".

Yes, you are in way more danger from the "good men" and the more certain they are of their goodness, righteousness, the greater the danger. Directly proportional!!

Doctors without Borders have been confirming Syrian gassings since 2013. Perhaps you believe that the physicians treating the injured are either incompetent, simply mistaken or the inflicted people were dying from what they thought occured?
This refers to the February attack not what occurred this month.

Thank God you guys weren't alive when Hitler was on the rampage... Just look the other way, I just don't want to get involved.... Sorry, but I've had my fill of that attitude for years.

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted;
the indifference of those who should have known better;
the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most;
that has made it possible for evil to triumph.

Hook, Line and Sinker.

As they say, "First person to bring up Hitler and the Holocaust" looses the argument.

Pretty sure all those Germans thought they were the Good Guys saving the world from evil. Got all riled up about it too.

Also pretty sure this is about getting a pipeline from S.A. to Europe. If it was Sarin, the filmers, medics, doctors handling the bodies, would all be dead.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, I must be extremely gullible and easily susceptible to propaganda.

I've never heard that said. Perhaps you might quote your source? If the argument is lost, it's only lost in your mind, from your perspective, not mine.

The last report I read said it was Chlorine, but whatever it was, it was real not imaginary.
