Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

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.

This article is over two months old. There has been a lot thats happened since then including verifiable evidence that Assad did use chemical weapon on his citizens. America acted after there was evidence. Had military action occurred back in February without evidence I agree that would have been immoral..and actually illegal by international law.

Remember the Maine? (Cuba)

Remember the “Tonkin Gulf Attack”? (Viet Nam)

Remember US medical students “at risk?” (Grenada)

Remember “I saw Saddm’s troops throw Kuwaiti babies out of incubators”? (Iraq War 1)

Remember Iraq’s “Weapons of Mass Destruction”? (Iraq War II)

Remember the earlier gas attacks in Syria in which the British Parliament refused to authorize an attack on the Syrian government because it was unclear who was responsible–and Obama threw the decision of a U.S. attack to Congress–which to their credit voted No?

Remember Gaddafi is going to massacre the people of Benghazi and is giving viagra to his troops to rape the women? (Libya)

Remember the “nerve gas” attack in Salisbury, England that still has not been linked to Russia?

Remember Russia’s March 17 warning that the US was planning to stage a chemical attack in Syria to provoke a military “response”?"



I've been around the world alot lately. Do you want to know what the rest of the world thinks of Canada. Basically, they consider us the U.S.s bitch. A Vassal State. I agree. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vassal_state

Question my warriorhood? Pfft. I did my best, in my limited capacity, to keep canadian soldiers out of Iraq.

Yes, but unless you're paranoid, everything that occurs in the world isn't a Government conspiracy.

"Godwin's law itself can be abused as a distraction, diversion or even as censorship, fallaciously miscasting an opponent's argument as hyperbole when the comparisons made by the argument are actually appropriate."

I've been to Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, I haven't found your opinion to be valid.

And what capacity was that? I don't question anything but your judgment.

"If it was Sarin, the filmers, medics, doctors handling the bodies, would all be dead."

Not necessarily, according to one report it was in liquid form, not a gas, so you actually had to come in contact with the surface it was on, or spend a lot of time where it was evaporating, to get sick. You also forget that one of the cops who helped them DID wind up in the hospital with nerve agent poisoning.

As for your original rant, we're in the Middle East because oil is a strategic resource. If you don't have a hand in controlling it, someone who hates you - maybe someone who hates freedom - might try to take control of it.

Imagine a world divided into two hemispheres, A and B. What do you suppose hemisphere A's reaction would be if one day the people in hemisphere B dug up control box that allowed them to control whether hemisphere A got oxygen or not? You think hemisphere A wouldn't worry about that? What if you lived in hemisphere A, and one day the men in hemisphere B commanded (yeah, they don't ask nicely) that you send your daughter over for the evening, or you know, the oxygen might go off? Are you telling me you wouldn't try to get control of that box? Oil feeds the machinery, ships, planes, tanks and trucks that protect your freedom on a daily basis. Do you have any idea how many oil tankers were sent to the bottom of the Atlantic by German U-boats during WWII, in an attempt to starve Britain into submission? If he were alive today, you could ask Rommel how well his tanks performed without fuel. You're lucky there are more strategic thinkers in your society than you, there're the only thing standing between you and slavery.
