This is insanity people.
    What is insanity is standing by and letting the Syrian people get gunned down and murdered. Russia has supplyed more weapons to the Assad regime than it has supplied aid to the Syrian refugees.

    Russia is making profits from the Assad regimes massacres of its people.

    If the rebals seize the city that serves as the Russian naval base, I wonder if Russia will stand by and do nothing?

    Attacking a country that hasn't attacked us violates our own law. Why is this difficult again?

    There are laws banning the use of chemical weapons. We are one of the major supporters of that law and it is our supposed duty to prevent people from violating that law.

    Syria isn't a signer of that treaty so they don't recognise it's authority. Kind of like the US conveniently doesn't recognise the authority of the ICC (obviously because we'd spend a lot of time there defending ourselves). And one more time. Attacking a country that hasn't attacked us VIOLATES OUR CONSTITUTION. IT'S ILLEGAL. Or are you one of those guys that thinks one wrong plus one wrong equals one right?

    ****, give me a break. We're one of the major manufacturers of chemical weapons! And when it "suits our interests" we both provide them and in courage their use. Don't be an accomplice of US hypocrisy on this.

    We no longer manufacture chemical or biological weapons, and in fact, have just finished destroying our previous stockpiles...

    I don't know that all of them have been destroyed, if and when it happens it will be a great trend. But the hypocrisy remains.


    The U.S. chemical weapons program began during World War I. Chemical weapons production directed principally against people ended in 1969. For nine years between 1962 and 1971 approximately 20 million gallons of defoliants and herbicides were sprayed over Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia by the US military resulting in an estimated 400,000 people killed or maimed and 500,000 children born with birth defects as a result of what were called 'rainbow herbicides' in Operation Ranch Hand.[1] The United States renounced chemical weapons in 1997 and destruction of stockpiled weapons is still ongoing.

    The effects of Agent Orange were not understood at the time. There was never intent to use those agents for anything other than their original purpose, and if you choose to post from another source, links are always appreciated...

    BTW, I would have thought you would have objected more to the use of napalm for clearing caves...

    That would be an objection as well. Sorry, thought it was obvious.

    Oh, I see we didn't know it would kill people and make more defective. I feel better now.
