    I figure it out that you have no idea what an "accusation" means since I asked them if that is what they supported without accusing them of anything. Feel free to troll someone else--that is your Constitutional Right

    Good thing I never claimed or suggested it. In fact my point had nothing to do with what you are saying.

    It has everything to do with it in my opinion of the thread topic. If they shoot down a couple US jetliners - here or anywhere - we'll spend another trillion on wars and lose even more civil liberties and privacy. Since it is known to the Syrian government leader and top military and civilian leadership they will be killed as likely will all their family once we start attacking, that is the only retaliation and threat they have.

    After our losses in Okinawa and the option of nuclear weapons after their testing, we had no other option.

    Re: Navy ready to launch first strike on Syria

    Putin wants to prove he's tough and rebuilt the Russian military - with the oil $$ now to do it. A proxy war with the USA in Syria would be just the ticket his and our "military industrial complex" both need for a new major arms race.

    The really cool thing is in a country such as Syria it can all be done technologically with super outrageously expensive weapons and little to no American or Russian casualties. Rather, only Syrians on both sides die - although maybe we'll get will lucky and some spill over to other countries to stage for the next one.

    Maybe, just maybe, if things go right, we can spark more "insurgencies" in numerous countries in that region.

    Does anybody think the timing of announcing last week that Bush would be excused for his war actions seems a little suspect considering what we are talking about today?

    When did Assad bomb his own people with chemical weapons? How is that connected to President Bush-43? Would you hire General Powell as a special consultant to defense affairs? Is the world an ever more complicated place that we must referee or deal with the consequences?

    The Russian navy is only operating one carrier but it's more like a cruiser/ aircraft carrier that also can operate as a surface warfare cruiser armed with long range anti ship missiles and anti aircraft missiles. It's primary role is different than American carriers. It's intended to support and defend strategic missile-carrying submarines, surface ships, and maritime missile-carrying aircraft of the Russian fleet.

    The Russian Navy has developed a new maritime warfare strategy where the Russian Navy will still be a blue water navy capable of operating anywhere in the worlds oceans but it's ships will be designed for certain regions of the world.

    New classes of warships for the Russians Navy's AOR in the Eastern Pacific. Different classes of ships for the Russians AOR in the Middle east, Mediterranean Sea AOR and different classes of warships for the Atlantic AOR.

    The Russian bear has come out of hibernation and are in the process of building a new Navy with all new warships and support ships to be able to operate 12,000 miles from Russia's shores.

    Knowing what you know about our forces and where they are currently deployed; knowing the machinations behind what is happening right now between Obama, his people, and the congressionals; what would you do?

    And for the first time in sixty years there are more Russian warships in the Mediterranean Sea than American warships. Most of Obama's Navy is incapable to putting to sea and being able to fight.

    Why isn't there an American Carrier Strike Group in the 6th Fleet AOR ? That's right, it's Obama's PC Navy.
