    If the Saudi's could buy the life of one US soldier I'd listen to their desire to pay for us to inject our military into the civil war in Syria. Since that will never happen, the Saudi's can pound sand and they have plenty of it.

    Yeah, me neither I think it's people who already are upset at a situation simply interpreting every piece of new data in the worst light possible to justify increased or continued outrage.

I mean is it possible that the images we see of Syrians offering themselves up as human shields could be propaganda? No can't be dictatorships don't buy into the whole propaganda thing. Its convenient though that as soon as America look to step in the Syrian people apparently are rising up to support Assad but must be a coincidence...
    Well, I mean sense the bombing campaign hasn't yet begun, that would be none (with regards to Syria, that is) but though we have attacked countries in the past that didn't attack us, used false flags in other situations as a pretext to attack countries that hadn't attacked us, they have been broken, but I won't bother with an entire history lesson for you on that now. As to my evidence that Assad is well supported, I've only posted it multiple times on various threads on this topic, thought you said you'd been watching. As to propaganda, yes, there is propaganda coming from all asides, the truth is very difficult to ascertain on everything (another good reason not to start throwing bombs immediately) as to president Assad behaving like a dictator, sure, the US has propped them up when they "served our interests" and takin them down when they didn't. A significant amount of the Syrian people favour their current president over the Islamic extremists and jihadists that have documented civilian atrocities credited to them, the ones you wish to support. Why don't you work on getting Great Britain to go kick Assad's ass?

    I'm the opposite. I voted Libertarian; but I have been quite happy with Obama over the 5 years he has been doing his job. OTOH, I think the problem lies with the partisan politics in the Senate and with the GOP and DNC party platforms.

    Two things....1. How do you reconcile being a Libertarian and being happy with an agenda that is filled with centralized governmental control? 2. Contrast is good in politics, it is what the founders set up to slow things down, and allow for reasoned deliberation, and compromise.

    Now, as far as the Arab's willing to pay us like a hired hand to do their dirty work, I say no. History is filled with shady dealings, and blood money from this part of the world, even back to the bible. I think at this time, you have the Arab League saying no publically, but the Saud's and Qutar offering this slap in the face behind the scenes. We should say emphatically NO! "You go take care of him, and we will provide support for you to do that..." Why should we die for you?

    I'm thrilled that we might have our allies bankroll our operation. Salaries, fuel, and munitions are expensive. Where is this outrage coming from?
