PC,, i was referencing the panel here more than anythng else. Yes i realize the vast majority of Americans DIDNT want this new war. And Damm good for US ALL that did write the blitz of emails to those idjets in congress.

I KNOW harry ried tard got pummeled as well, but he was still on board for the war until YESTERDAY.

ooops my bad.. Too many quips to reply to.

Locker your request has already been filled in this thread. I dont have the time to re post it all. Its been a long process. But a mere two days ago,, obummer said with his own lips, that he may strike Syria EVEN IF he didnt get congressional approval.. THAT one statement spoke volumes to me and many others. Had it not been for a brain fart of J kerry, and a Russian Diplomat actually noticing and examining, none of this would be happening and the planes would be loading up with 500 lbers right now. ( and they still might be)..

Obummer had the audacity to claim he didnt say the RED LINE, and that the WORLD called it a "red line",,, yet the world turned him down on the RED LINE thing. And so did Americans. THE ONLY right ones in this debacle were the people saying HELL NO to this war.

Additional War is most likely about to be avoided due to President Obama and company...

But again, that means NOTHING!!!...

This thread has been "Ron'd". Think about it: we are debating US foreign policy with Ron, with Werner chiming in.

Can there be a more useless activity?

"They're reduced to condemning an American President for threatening to use military force against an Islamic dictator for gassing 400 children to death 300 miles from Jerusalem."...


I'd bank on it that if there were a Republican in office currently that they would be fuking jumping all over it calling for WAR...

Such fuking hypocrites!!!...

I find that using a handgun as a deterrent to crime is much more effective if criminals actually believe you are willing to pull the trigger.

I'm glad no American Bombs are falling on Damascus. President Obama electing to not throw deadly rocks over the fence is encouraging... for the moment.

This recent action by the Soviets is noteworthy in that, it at least seems, we were in a bigger bind than were they. In light of this it is worth the time to read Frank von Hippel's account of how nuclear reductions were achieved during Gorbachev's term in office. von Hippel discusses how the technical and governmental people in Russia worked with their counterparts to explore the options available.

http://www.physicstoday.org/resource/1/phtoad/v66/i9/p41_s1?bypassSSO=1

It is just possible we can benefit by modifying somewhat the thought processes we adopted during the cold war.

Based upon the horrific struggle conducted by the Soviets at Stalingrad to defeat Hitler's 6th army, the destruction of their land, and their twenty million dead provides the rationale for their forming buffer states and suggests, now that Stalin and Khrushchev are both dead, that the people over there are not anxious for more war. My neighbor was just over there expecting to see people courageously enduring a poverty and a discouragement not seen anywhere else. He found people pursuing the good life much as it is pursued here.

These are trends we would be foolish to ignore completely.

Now that this has been handled via diplomacy the echo chamber will be screeching that we need to bomb Syria.

Your neighbor was probably in Moscow or one of the cities in the areas that are rich with petroleum resources.

There are huge regional wealth disparities in Russia. Go to the smaller cities or any rural area, and one will definitely see people courageously enduring poverty.

Putin today in the New York Times, op-ed...

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/12/opinion/putin-plea-for-caution-from-russia-on-syria.html?src=me&ref=general

Putin warns the UN could suffer the same fate as its precursor, the League of Nations, if "influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization".

.....

Are some things true even if George W. Bush believed them?
