    Well, you should change your response to "America"....Russia, and Iran are already involved. Obama is just standing on the sidelines watching the massacre.

    Well good for them i still think they shouldnt be involved.
    We are involved as well bud..

    I'd say he's about as brave as our "noble" leaders who desire to take us to war in the first place and cause this situation.

    financial aid is nothing compared to a no fly zone. Unless you think it fair that Jet's and their munitions are matched up with rebel fighters on the ground....

    And its a damn shame.

    being guilty through the act of doing nothing about it, is not only cowardly, but is generally thought of as being an accessory to the actions.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Lots of stuff.

    I thought we werent involved?
    Now were involved but not just involved as much as you would like?


    being guilty through the act of doing nothing about it, is not only cowardly, but is generally thought of as being an accessory to the actions.

    So with all the civil wars that went on throughout the world and the US not getting involved in them was being an "accessory to the actions"?

    Yeah, that's right...I'd rather not have Assad slaughtering his own people. When did that become bad?

    We'd have to take a look at a case by case analysis of what you are asking here, I would venture some yes, some no...We are human after all. But this case seems clear so far, and it is interesting that Obama felt that Lybia, and Mali, two places with a near zero retaliatory threat were fine to intervene in, but Syria, a country on Israel's border, with NBC/WMD, and a large professional army is just too dangerous for him...So, he'll just beg off and let the people die.

    100% certain there is a civil war going on in Syria
    100% certain that US has supported right wing dictators throughout the world
    100% certain that the Bush regime picked and chose what intelegence to feed to the people on Iraq
    100% certain that there were no WMDS
    100% ceratin that Jews were being massacred during WW2




    Yeah, that's right...I'd rather not have Assad slaughtering his own people. When did that become bad?
    Never said it was bad but getting involved in a sectarian civil war with Islamic extremist elements on the rise is not bueno either and a huge downfall can come about this in Syria if Assad falls as well. And plus no one is sure if the civil war will end if Assad is removed.




    We'd have to take a look at a case by case analysis of what you are asking here,
    So now its sometimes ok not to get involved in civil wars and massacres? Thanks for proving my point.

    I thought this thread was about Syria?

    So you are pro Assad?

    So now its sometimes ok not to get involved in civil wars and massacres? Thanks for proving my point.
    Didn't say that, that's your straw-dog.
