    I have sympathies for them no doubt, but i however do not think its our job as country to get involved in any nations civil wars. I hold a very anti-interventionism foreign policy world view.

    More to the point the Syrian opposition has repeatedly made clear that absent the use of weapons of mass destruction it believes it is capable of overthrowing Assad on their own, and that all they need are arms and proper support.
    Yes they do need support that is true. But also a big point into this is that much of the Syrian opposition may have Al-Qaeda ties or Islamic extremism ties. Also the opposition tactics are not so much different from the governments when it comes to brutality. But also this is part of any problem when it comes to civil war, with any opposition group this however does not mean they need to go to state actors to support them.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    It depends on who has control of the WMDs.

    We are 60% to 75% of the UN's funding. When you think of the UN, think American's money while other county's take the credit and often while not representing our values. Its the only game out there in terms of international cooperation so we try to work through it as best possible but it also has its scam properties. Where else can you take American taxpayer money, take some two bit tyranny with a serious human rights record, give their dictator's minion the title of "UN Ambassador" and place him over global human rights advocacy?

    We should stay out of it. We should focus on America and the many problems that we have here.

    I am all for cutting off funding to the UN.Global organizations are a threat to national independence.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'm just not up for getting involved in other country's matters at this time. I've had enough for awhile. I do not believe it is our obligation or responsibility to save literally everybody. So, thanks, but no thanks.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It's unfortunate what is happening there; however, I do not think that in the position our country is in right now that it is the smartest thing to do. I don't like much foreign intervention anyways. Let's just stay out of it and worry about what is happening on our home front.

    Those who pay for AIPAC for a start. Oil interests are now divided because some feel wrecking America is easier than colonising the Middle East. There are also those who want to eliminate the Iranians to punish them for Thermopolae or just for the fun of the thing, obviously - but they are the sort who are already paying to murder children in Palestine.
