maybe puteen is a conniving, lieing and brutal SOB but he is making our elected officials look like stupid ass holes

Who cares what they "look like?"

Answer: People who watch cable news thinking that global politics is some sort of sporting event where TV pundits score the contestants.

So some guy on TV says Putin is "winning?" BFD

Here's a clue from the real world: You "win" by achieving your objective at the lowest cost possible.

If Syria does give up their chemical weapons, everybody wins.

The US is has actively been destroying its chemical weapons for decades. The only weapons remaining have not been destroyed because of the risks of disposal. We built this stuff without ever understanding how we would get rid of it. But there is an effort in place, and there has been a substantial reduction since disposal efforts began:

When will the US give up its chemical weapons?

we have spent over 30$ billion so far to get rid of ours, we have about 10% left. those too will be destroyed.

who wants to pay for proper disposal of Syrias weapons?

Wrong, completely wrong.

You have no clue who really is running the show.

You people only swim in shallow water.

This exactly why the real players can manipulate populations, govts, to do what they really want .......

Werner, your claims of extraordinary insight into the workings of the global power structure are just silly.

haha..and if it's clear tomorrow, it will be a nice day. Haha! Nice call Dave. Do you have an ETA on that? Didn't think so. It's all politics and your democratic buddies were outmaneuvered much like a kindergartener teacher outmaneuvers the little kids.

Breaking news: IF pigs fly it will be amazing. Wow, tough statement to make but I just did it. Thanks for the inspiration there Dave:-)



Let's ask the pup if Syria will now give it up.



It appears that the President was Pwned, lets ask the magic 8 ball. Will Syria now give up it's chemical weapons since Secretary of state John Kerry suggested it and Putin thought it would work?



Pretty definitive Dave.

Assad wants the US to accept a bunch of concessions that it will never agree to. For example, he wants a guarantee he will not be attacked by the US or anyone else before he gives up his chemical weapons. That is very unlikely to happen. And, evidently, he's not going to agree to any chemical weapons deal unless the US stops giving weapons to the rebels who are fighting against the Syrian government. That is also very unlikely to happen. And Assad is suggesting that Israel should give up its weapons of mass destruction. That is extremely unlikely to happen.

Obama & Kerry will dance around and make it look like they are considering peace. They will get Congress to authorize a strike if diplomacy fails. But they already know it is gonna fail. In the meantime, Turkey, Saudi Arabia & Qatar are going to continue to heavily pressure the Obama administration.

Any concept of "Republican" or "Democrat" is schoolyard nonsense that simply divides the team-loving sheeple into fighting against each other with the illusion of having a choice.

Without a major war our destroyed bullsh!t currency collapses sooner rather than later. So there will be war. The only question that remains is how much power TPTB really has over the US military anymore.

Stop with the puppet worship and the blue vs. red team.

Feel a little sorry for the regular guy in Syria just trying to make a
living and hoping the rebels and Assad's forces don't
fight it out in his neighborhood today and blast it and him to bits.


Plus they are now thinking about US tomahawks blowing big holes in things
and trying to figure out how NOT to be near a worthy target.

Wonder if we would be sleeping very soundly if, for example, China had missile ships threatening to blast the Bay Area, lurking off shore from Santa Cruz. Not me.

Living with a 2 minute warning of those evil commie cruise missiles to
come arcing up from Bonny Doon, over Castle Rock and falling on our
friends at facebook and Cisco etc.



Lets just hope for some positive results doing a mind f^ck waiting game to the Syrian govt.

They are really bad guys.

Whatever your opinion is on Syria, you may think you understand what is going on in Syria, but you're probably only getting a superficial and heavily edited version of events from the news.
If you want a better idea of all the implications in play by striking/not striking Syria, you need to read this blog post by Brad Taylor.
Brad is a recently retired Army Lt. Colonel with 8 years as a Delta Force commander.
Check out his bio...

Link to the blog entry. This should help explain all the actors in play.

I'm starting a fund to get Werner into mental health counseling. Or maybe a ticket back to his home planet. Earth is definitely not his home.
