    Sanctions against countries where Christians are persecuted?

    Should Western Countries make sanctions against countries where Christians, today's mostly persecuted minority, are persecuted or not, please vote.

    Nope.

    Sanctions are responsible for mass death of populations. If you want to do something about "Christians being persecuted", then there are ways to do so without needlessly killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians.

    I presume that you'll be putting sanctions on Israel, a receiver of a RIDICULOUS amount of military aid, since they persecute the Palestinians, no?

    Sigh, I hate this mentality in the US government.

    I do not think it should matter what the religion is of those who are being persecuted. All foreign aid should be cut off and we should sanction those who do not share our ideas of democracy,constitutional rights and equality.

    "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"

    Sanctions 9 out of 10 times end up hurting the civilian population rather than the despots.

    Sanctions in Iraq killed off mass segments of the population, especially children, and strengthened the dictator by forcing the population to rely on him for survival. Works brilliantly.

    This thread is ridiculous. Why should Christians have preferential treatment? What about Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, etc.... Are they not the same human?

    So you oppose sanctions and you oppose military action. What would be your solution, unconditional surrender (and I mean by the US?)

    No.

    Won't lead anywhere good - and most certainly violates our American-side of our 1st Amendment.

    If Congress cannot makes regulation pertaining to religion - then we should be allowed to nitpick, give support or take it away *because* of it, either.

    Persecution of Christians is actually protected free speech. I guess that's one way to look at it.
