    Remember we supposedly were not training them either for a while then turns out weve been doing that all along..
    More transparency from the Obama administration. No wonder members of the secret keepers agencies of the USA are whistle blowing on his administration.

    Well that's where we disagree Jack.....I don't think it is the Right thing for us to do. So that's where we will have to let it stand. As long a you were aware of the facts upon the flip side of the coin. Then it should be easy to understand what takes place after the conflict is over.

    I'd like to say that we'll soon know whether supporting the rebels was a good idea or not, but we still have Iraq war hawks contending that the invasion was a good idea in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. I think aid to Syrian rebels will be the same thing. It will be a disaster, but the same voices in favor of it will claim is was the right thing to do.

    What makes you think the Sunni will wipe out the Shia?

    Iran and Iraq are Shia powers. I think they'll be able to take care of themselves.

    And it has been ours ever since..and because Argentina starts rattling it's sabre, it makes no difference..the people on the Falklands are British Citizens and must be protected..

    How would you like it if Russia sent war-ships and troops to take Alaska back??
