    So we stay out of it. The UN doesn't want to move, and so we would end up alone in the conflict just like in Iraq and afganistan and we know how well those turned out. The safety and lives of the people of syria are not US concern or responsibility. Isn't the right the side that bitches every time the US supports the UN? Now all of a sudden you are OK with the US entering the war to back the UN if it goes? Or is this another one of those completely obvious double edged swords where the moment the UN decides to go into syria and Obama joins them you will immediately Romney and pretend you opposed going into syria all along and Obama is horrible for doing so.

    You do that crap enough it is pretty obvious that any time you take a position we know you will flip flop and go after Obama the moment he sides with you. It is so bad i wish Obama would go against gun control just to watch the NRA's collective heads explode.

    Words are words, and he doesn't have to back up his if he doesn't want to. Besides, the moment he did att5empt to back up those words with the military you would be all over him for doing it. There is nothing the guy can do right so why even bother taking issue with any specific things anymore? We know you do not care about syria, chemical weapons, or even his threats. You just want to insult Obama and will go against any and all of your values to do so. What is really amazing is that Obama is the Bush that Bush wishes he was. maybe that is why you hate him so much. he showed you how to be a republican.

    I don't support action in Syria.
    I love the fact that you spend time to concoct a false story only to have your idiot narrative defeated in a matter of a single sentence.



    you still don't know the difference between a Libertarian and a Republican?...go forth and educate yourself ,child.

    First off, I don't buy that. You clearly have romnesia, but let us pretend like you are honest and that claim isn't full of crap. What is the problem then? You don't want action in syria so why bitch that obama isn't charging into syria? He is doing what you want, and this just lends more credit to my claims that you are full of crap because it doesn't matter that he does what you want him to do, it just matters that you complain. What was the point of making the commie comment if you agree with the commies stopping anything from happening? If this move had nothing to do with communism there was no purpose in mentioning it, and if it does have something to do with communism then you are agreeing with the commies.

    I love the fact you don't seem to recognize that you are agreeing with obama and the commies not getting involved with syria. You do it while pretending you are opposed to both sides, but admitting they are doing the right think by keeping the UN out of it. This is serious romnesia. When you have completely disagreed with yourself in a couple of sentences you have a problem. You can try to blame me, Obama, the news, democrats, or whoever you like, but you are contradicting yourself and you don't even know what you believe anymore because of your problems.

    But feel free to prove me wrong, just simply say you agree with the commies and obama staying out of syria. You have already agreed, just put them both in the same sentence.

    You are not a libertarian, though you may call yourself one. The conservative right is not libertarian even though they agree with libs on the issue of gun control. You are a right wing fascist which puts you clearly in the republican camp. BTW I know a few libertarians and they would probably shoot you for trying to cross the lines. They are not terribly fond of reps right now for totally subverting their message and pretending to be libertarian.

    I have stated my position, that you don't buy it is meaningless.... anything else you make up in your head is on you, not me.

    there is no contradiction in my position.... whatever your mind has concocted is of no importance

    I have already proven you wrong.

    I'm a Libertarian and your disagreement with that fact is irrelevant.


    right wing fascist ... what a marooon.

    you know libertarians who would shoot me if i were a Republican pretending to be a libertarian?....do you generally associate with murderous sociopaths or are you lying ,as usual?

    Yes, you have stated your opinion that the commies and obama are bad for stopping the UN from going into syria while you completely agree with not going into syria. Yes, none of that problem is you at all.

    Quote Originally Posted by Thrilla View Post

    Of course not, it is quite logical to oppose going into syria while opposing opposition to going into syria. Nothing contradictory at all in that. I am completely wrong in finding contradiction in two completely contradictory expressions of yours.

    Yup yup, I have totally been proven wrong about you contradicting yourself.

    No really, I am sure you are well aware of what you are doing and not living in a contradictory state that would make your opinions of your stance completely irrelevant.

    I don't think that word means what you think it means.

    You have certainly corrected me by making unsupported statements based on your flawed opinions. I am not exactly sure why I was confused about your stance before. you have proven who and what you are beyond a shadow of a doubt at this point. Just don't get too angry at me for being smart enough to see your contradictions and lack of knowledge where you are unable to do so.

    A possible new wrinkle to the purported use of chemical weapons:

    From Reuters:

    U.N. human rights investigators have gathered testimony from casualties of Syria's civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin, one of the lead investigators said on Sunday...

    President Bashar al-Assad's government and the rebels accuse each another of carrying out three chemical weapon attacks, one near Aleppo and another near Damascus, both in March, and another in Homs in December.


    U.N. has testimony that Syrian rebels used sarin gas: investigator | Reuters

    At this time, I still believe the lack of compelling U.S. interests in Syria's civil war argues against U.S. intervention. This new information, if confirmed, would highlight the ugliness of ethnic conflicts where the particpants often show little restraint when it comes to weapons use.

    I think we can agree it was idiotic of Obama to talk about a red line, and then running away from it. Add then the boner by some dimwit in his administration about the use of sarin... not a good week.

    The only "red line" should be whether the critical interests of the U.S. or strategic U.S. allies are threatened. If not, the U.S. should stay out of the civil war that is being waged by two brutal parties to the conflict, none of which has indicated in any credible fashion that they would adopt policies more compatible with U.S. interests in the region, strive for peace with Israel, etc.
