    That's their damn fault for allowing uncontrolled immigration from Muslim cesspools. Their immigration system is almost as f-ed up as ours.

    Hardly... but if that makes you feel better about it, keep doing it.

    Others have - and rightfully so - also spoken out about Putin's aggression against Ukraine.

    Just for the record, it's not like European countries do not contribute. France(!) has decided to join the bombing of ISIS. Germany is delivering weapons to the Kurds in north Iraq and training their fighters against ISIS. Perhaps other European countries contribute as well.

    Wrong. Their immigration systems are tighter than ours. The difference is that Muslims can walk from Mecca to Paris...but they can't walk from Mecca to St. Louis.

    US President Barack Obama denounced Russian aggression in Europe at the United Nations on Wednesday, but proferred a hand to Moscow by offering to lift sanctions if Russia changes course. "We will impose a cost on Russia for aggression," he said. But the US president said a recent ceasefire agreement in Ukraine offers an opening towards diplomacy and peace.

    "If Russia takes that path -- a path that for stretches of the post-Cold War period resulted in prosperity for the Russian people -- then we will lift our sanctions and welcome Russia's role in addressing common challenges." He said Russia and the United States had cooperated in the past, from reducing nuclear stockpiles to removing and destroying Syria's declared chemical weapons. "And that’s the kind of cooperation we are prepared to pursue again -- if Russia changes course," Obama said.....snip~

    The US government informed the Syrian ambassador in Washington before the US airstrikes against ISIS in Syria commenced. Damascus did not object.

    Putin's invasion/annexation of Crimea in 2014 is little different than Saddam's invasion of and attempt to annex Kuwait in 1991.

    The Syrian government and its close allies in Moscow and Tehran warned Barack Obama that an offensive against Islamic State (Isis) within Syria would violate international law yesterday, hours after the US president announced that he was authorising an open-ended campaign of air strikes against militants on both sides of the border with Iraq.

    However, the Syrian government would approve of a US led bombing campaign if it targeted ALL of the militant Islamic groups fighting in Syria, instead of supporting the others.

    Since when does Moscow care about international law? Invading and annexing Crimea also violates international law.

    The hypocrisy displayed by the US government is astounding.

    As we have drones firing missiles all over Asia and the Mideast, killing indiscriminately, Obama calls Russia an aggressor. Truth is stranger than fiction.

    If Russia and the old Warsaw Pact were trying to move into Canada, or Cuba, we would be very defensive, justifiably.
