    if we hit them, it won't be with boots on the ground ... it'll be surgical ... BUT, I hope they wait for the U.N. inspection to be completed ... from where I sit, the WH has not handled this Syria mess very well and why make it worse by hitting them and finding out later that Assad had not used chemical weapons ... BUT, from where we all sit, we don't have the best view, so we're just guessing ... I'll wait to see how it all shakes out ...

    I know New Zealand still has some troops in Afghanistan. Any links about Russia and Germany?

    5,350 soldiers and policemen from the Germans 54 deaths including one earlier this year who was a member of the German KSK special forces

    As for Russia from what I gathered they supported the Northern alliance but don't have any links right now.

    I knew about this before but my dumb ass forgot for some retarded reason. You are right. I forgot how many NATO and non-NATO troops actually went too...

    47 nations contributed 97,920 troops as of 24 June 2013

But being Clinton killed as many if not more civilians in Kosovo than "enemy troops" it's tough to even pretend that. On the other hand, if you mean the trick is to take some heat off a President who made a mistake like Clinton and Monica or Obama and his stupid "red line" remark, well that's a "trick". Of course Clinton pulled his "trick" supporting the muslim's and they rewarded us later on with 9/11. Of course today, Obama would attack Assad, who knows maybe kill him and leave who in charge? That's right, radical muslims. They wouldn't say thanks.

    So if Obama pulls off this "trick" without an invasion and creates conditions where our sworn enemies thrive, whose better off? Not us. Not free loving people anywhere in the world. I think it would have been much better to have had a competent president who knew better than to have ever made such a stupid remark as our did with his "red line" remark. Or at least one fully prepared to send his nation to war over those type actions.

    Non-sense. Combat roles , only when attacked for the most part and policing roles, get real. How about going on the offensive, with large quantities of troops and kill a bunch of bad guys. Nope. Candy ass pu**ies, the lot of them. Minus the Brits. Support role this, support role that, stay on the compound, don't risk anything, that was their motto. Screw all of them. They didn't meet their end of the deal. We should return the favor, they should stand alone and we'll cheer them on when their time comes. Or do like some of them did and not even do that.

    Obviously doesn't compare to the numbers the US put in or even the UK but for a nation like Germany given its history it was a big step and caused a lot of controversy internally.

    Out of interest have you served in a combat zone?

    Wasn't it the USA that was actually attacked? Why wouldn't we do the majority of the work?
