    Good Lord! When a five year old gets it, and his grandmother realizes only after she's related the story that it was a mistake to even tell the story, we are in real trouble....

    That's hilarious except its very sad.

    China and Russia are probably less of a threat because that would involve a major war, which the US could possibly win. But they can't seem to win against piss-ant countries because they lack the will to go all the way. It would not do China or Russia and good to fight a real war. Traditional wars have become largely obsolete anyway. There are now many other ways to break a people's will.
    Wow, so you would risk a war with Russia and or China that by your own admission wouldn't be a slam dunk. Let me tell you something, in the end, we probably could beat one or both of them, BUT...............have you any idea the magnitude of the price tag in blood and treasure to secure that victory, IF we could? And a risk you'd like to take to attack a country that hasn't attacked us. We desperately need some retraining here in America.

    You appeared to quote me but somehow interpreted it that i would risk a war with Russia and/or China.

    Relax. There is not going to be a war with either country.

    We of course I agree its not likely, but you have ZERO ability to make such guarantees. Iran, and Syria have a mutual defence treaty and Russia and China are ally's to both of them. And Russia and Iran have already insisted that a US attack on Syria will mean escalation to a regional war. And your one sided view of who's killing civilians demonstrates your lack of knowledge of the Islamist extremists that the US is supporting, and the atrocities that the UN has documented!

    Russia should stop making the conflict worse with its supplying the Assad regime with weapons. They are profiting from murder.

    We can't back down everytime Russia and China threaten to go to war, either.

    Ok, look folks, this is why you don't vote for a dolt like Obama. This is all his doing. Everything that goes wrong, from here on out, is his fault. He's weak and he's too narcissistic to know it.

    There would probably have to be a reason, and there is no reason. That's why I feel extremely confident, despite weak American leadership.

    Where did i express some 'one-sided view of who's killing civilians'? I believe you have me confused with another poster.

    The US has profited from its own share of murder. You could make the same argument against the US. The US should stop making this conflict worse with its supplying the Islamist extremists with weapons!

    Does that mean you acknowledge the fact that the extremists we are supporting are killing civilians themselves?
