    There's more evidence for Bigfoot than for the Iraqi WMD to Syria theory.

    At least according to the US Intelligence community.
    I may be wrong.

    I wouldn't want to take the risk that it would be my side that get's wiped out. What would the point of that be?

    And even if we won, then would we be any better off? Would humanity be any better off after enduring WW3?

    Screw Egypt.

    Screw Libya.

    Screw the gassed Syrians.

    Screw Crimea.

    Screw Ukraine.

    Screw Iraq.

    Did I leave anyone out?

    Obama seems strangely okay with all this.

    You left plenty out.

    Regardless, their issues are their issues, as long as they don't screw with the US, I can't see any reason that the US should be involved.

    When was the last time Iraq invaded the US? We've invaded them twice during my lifetime. No wonder many of them hate us.

    So when Jordan, Turkey, and Israel get attacked next, thus completing the caliphate, you want to sit idly for that, too?

    Interesting, because I've read about this below, and also I've heard about some satellite images that were captured prior to the war of some suspicious activity involving large convoys in Iraq that appeared to be moving things.

    I can't say what is the truth. All I know is that I sure wouldn't be surprised if there had been chemical weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that were moved prior to the war. I don't know why anyone would find that difficult to believe.

    The U.S.-Russia agreement to dismantle Syria’s chemical weapons is reigniting a controversy over the 2003 covert operation by Russian special operations forces to remove Iraqi weapons — including chemical arms — and move them to Syria and Lebanon prior to the Iraq War.

    John A. Shaw, a former Pentagon official who first disclosed the Iraqi-Russian collaboration to The Washington Times, said the agreement brokered by Moscow could resolve unanswered questions about the arms transfers.

    “The Russians were the principal — if not the sole — supplier of chemical weapons to both Iraq and Syria,” said Mr. Shaw, a former deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security who tracked Iraqi weapons for the Pentagon.

    Mr. Shaw noted that U.N. inspectors who surveyed the site of the Aug. 21 Syrian chemical weapons attack near Damascus found an intact rocket motor inscribed with Cyrillic writing, indicating the delivery system was Russian in origin.

    Mr. Shaw said Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons — about 1,000 tons of nerve and blister agents — is estimated to be 50 percent larger than it was in 2003.
    “My people on the ground definitively tracked the Russian movement of Iraqi [chemical weapons] and high explosives to three locations in Syria and two in Lebanon in 2003,” Mr. Shaw told Inside the Ring.

    One of these days, they'll find those WMDs. Then it will all have been worth it.

    If we have mutual defense pacts with them, then we should assist them. Otherwise, what goes on in Iraq is none of our bitness.

    Do you have reason to believe that Jordan, Turkey or Israel are going to be attacked by these insurgents from Iraq? I suspect that those 8,000 insurgents are going to be quite busy trying to take over Iraq. They have their hands full, any talk about them taking over all of that reason is wishful thinking on their part, or media hype.
