    Hillary Clinton was sent to the UN multiple times to seek authorization for sanctions, no fly zone and use of military force, and has been consistently told NO. And to this moment Russia is warning we better not.

    The only thing Russia is going to do now.....is just give Assad Advanced warning when their coming. They have played their hand. They could have put up a blockade. That was their only out. In the reality of anything. Nows its play defense.

    I don't disagree with that, necessarily, but then that doesn't have anything to do with what we were discussing. The UN has told the US no on the use of military force in Syria, and regardless of weather or not Russia wants to involve themselves militarily, they will not be relenting their position on that.

    China and Russia on the Security Counsel yeah.....but we haven't heard anything from the UN about stopping any military action either. Other than they don't like it.....that is.

    For nearly three years the UN Security Council has denied the US use of force, that is the point, and no such authorization is forthcoming from that body. And the UN isn't in the business of stopping such things, they either authorize such actions or the deny authorization.

    I may need to put on my tinfoil but I believe our country is being heavily influenced largely by big business and government contractors who understand fully just how lucrative constant war can be for them. I do not think it is any coincidence that may of our top officials in various departments were once part of these very corporations or own significant shares in said companies.
