    And why he would poison civilians who aren't fighting him and according to NATO, support him by a healthy 70%. But we should all understand the advantage of the al Qaida affiliated insurgents in staging the attack with the hopes that it would be blamed on the Assad government. And we can all understand why the US would be eager to blame the Assad government given the long standing goal of regime change.

    NATO? What is the point. America was attacked and just about every member except GB did not uphold their end of the treaty. Token support was just about the only help we got from just about all of NATO. Everything was fine as long as it was supposed to be them getting attacked but it didn't work out that way. Time to say good by to NATO and find friends who we can trust. Or at least give the same support that we get.

    The UN? Corrupt, near useless organization.

    Get out of Assad's way, he crushes the al Qaida affiliated insurgents that we have been propping up, that staged the chemical attack, and the blood bath will be over.

    Really? What Nato member objected to Afghan?

    Why are they having such difficulty with this?

    What is different in this case is China and Russia. They were tricked in Libya and aren't going to stand for it again.

    We actually have a few rational minds in America that would love to do that, unfortunately, just a few!

    What military help have they offered? That is the nature of that Treaty... not objecting is a non-issue.

    Funny. Maybe you don't call that war, being on the aggressive end and everything.

Especially Land.....taken from whomever.....however. Even if it meant tricking them into selling all their land. In effect being bad and not giving a damn about what anyone else thinks.

    Now we have never been like that.....ever.

    Ok buddy, gotcha.
