Bit'O'Gristle: Initial symptoms following exposure to sarin are a runny nose, tightness in the chest and constriction of the pupils. Soon after, the victim has difficulty breathing and experiences nausea and drooling. As the victim continues to lose control of bodily functions, the victim vomits, defecates and urinates. This phase is followed by twitching and jerking. Ultimately, the victim becomes comatose and suffocates in a series of convulsive spasms.

atomicmask: I did not say it was alright. I said I didn't care. Apathy is not approval. Plus I pointed out the absolute hypocrisy turds like you getting bent out of shape over genocide in Syria that has yet to happen, while ignoring Genocide in the Congo (blacks) and somolia (blacks) because it is being done in a method that makes you wet your twilight sparkle underoos. You are a shiat heel and a hypocrite, pure and simple. BLOO BLOO SARIN GAS BLOO BLOO... Yet women being raped to death, men being burnt to death, and assorted murder of entire peoples in africa never once made you turn your head away from a cartoon aimed at 8 year old girls.


The difference is one of these things we can do something about. One of these things we cannot. There are no governments in the Congo sanctioning genocide. Only loose, scattered groups of people who's only allegiance is the warlord who shares their particular flavor of religion. The only way to stop what's going on in the Congo would be to kill anything and everything that moves. Since you seem to relish the thought of people not of your religion/skin color being murdered (Or as you backtrack and try to claim: don't care, despite what you've posted through this thread.) maybe you can pick up a gun and get on that.

Here. Say it with me real slow. Lawless areas of Africa where warlords are killing eachother under no Government, is not the same as the Government of Syria, a dictatorship propped up for YEARS by the United States, suddenly deciding to go full retard and not only condoning, but putting into action a plan to murder it's own people with chemical weapons are not the same thing.

And, as it has been put before, things WERE done to blunt the bloodshed in the Congo. One of these things we can do something about. One of these things we cannot.

people.virginia.edu

atomicmask: PS, you are a grown ass adult watching a cartoon for 8 year old girls, that alone makes anything you say a joke.


people.virginia.edu

By the way, since we're pointing out absurdities here? I'm not the one that claimed the United States had an illegal chemical weapons program, and then said you "knew it was true" because you worked in the "nuclear weapons field". Because, as everyone knows, Nuclear Weapons Techs are the same as Chemical Warfare Specialists in the Military. (Oh, wait. They're not.)

I won't repeat how much you're wrong since it's already been pointed out in the thread it's not true. But that's okay. You've made a habit of using blatant lies for the past two days. Why stop now?

atomicmask: Yes I would, I would be saying that until germany or japan attacks us (they did) we had no business getting involved. I would be alone in this I bet, along with a great deal of the united states at that time. World war 1 being fresh in the minds of most americans, they did not want to get involved in another bloody battle in Europe. Your perception that america leaped like a tiger the moment hitler invaded poland is some Mickey mouse mentality bullshiat. Smart people, people who have actually went to war and can know what it is like, want to avoid that shiat like the plague. Twats like you, who think this is some cartoon in which we ride in like knights and rescue the innocent people and then get treated to pie and cookies are wrong, dead wrong. It costs lives, it costs money, it sometimes costs generations. If it isn't a threat to us, we should not concern ourselves, period.

p.s. most americans at the time didn't like jews and didn't care what was happening to them. I know this is shocking thing to think post ww2, but a great deal of europe and the united states felt the same about jews. We entered europe to defend allies, not liberate jews. That was a side effect of our war effort.


people.virginia.edu

people.virginia.edu

The allies became aware of the use of Concentration camps and Gas Vans to systematically exterminate the Jews in 1942, well after the United States was in World War II through the cracking of Enigma. In addition, there was nothing that could be done about them at the time, as it was thought that bombing the camps would only increase the slaughter, and many were inside deeply-held areas of Europe under Nazi Control. It was only once the Allies had made significant footholds into Fortress Europe that they could begin to liberate them. But I applaud you on your historical revisionism.

You would, I personally don't give a shiat.

And for your highly dramatic and uninformed opinion, the syrian government wants to gas muslims, I am the one saying I do not care if they get gassed.

let me repeat it, in bold, so you can tell your wonderful friends back in equestria what a big meanie I am..

I do not give two shiats if syrians gas each other, I do not give two shiats if muslims gas each other. Throw the mother farkers a party afterwards for all I careI REALLY DO NOT GIVE A shiat IF BABIES IN THAT BACKWOODS shiat HOLE ARE BOTTLE FED WITH SARIN AND ANTHRAX

It is not our problem. that is not our country. Those are not our people. They must sort themselves out, not us. This whole United states chip and dale rescue rangers act has gotten us bankrupt and in decline. I am concerned with american lives, american children, and american soldiers, not syrian. not egyptian, not chinese, not russian, not any other nation.

We have gotten ire and hatred because we are constantly stepping in, treating the rest of the planet like it is a new born that may burn itself if it touches the stove. The rest of the world hates us because of it..why? They are far older, and have been going at this whole being a nation thing far longer then we have. They know what they are doing, and if they do not wanna fix the problem, then we shouldn't care either. Saudi arabia, rich as fark, does not give two shiats about syrians...why should we? UAE, Qutar, rich...capable of sending troops, but they do not. That is the back yard of the middle east, and if they cant get motivated to stop it, I do not see why a group of people on the other side of the planet has to step in.

This, this right here, is exactly why I am 100% unconcerned with them getting gassed. It is the same, farking, movement that we have seen in egypt, lybia, Tripoli, Iraq, and afghanistan. It is the muslim brotherhood/al quada/whatever name they are using to pretend to be a political movement but instead is a facist theocratic movement.

So assad is in the right on this one. He is showing he is not someone to be farked around with like Kadafi. Ever notice how the moment our delightful rebel friends win, they instantly start burning US flags and attacking embassies? Its ONE GOD DAMN POLITICAL MOVEMENT, and it is ANTI WEST.

And by preventative maintenance I mean destroy them completely before it becomes a problem.

Doubtful.

You know, you really have to wonder... at what point will the Middle East eventually cry "Uncle!" ? It's not unprecedented. Europe was more or less a bloodbath from the collapse of the Roman Empire (if the Church hadn't been around, it might have been even worse, but that's another discussion) up until 1945. They were always ready for war. It took a war that involved mechanized genocide and 30 million deaths for them to stop. Eventually, the destruction will simply be too much for even the most well-prepared sections of their society to bear... but what will it take? Nuclear detonations? Decade-long mechanized warfare? What's the trigger for surrender?

Dear Princess Celestia,

17 years ago, a bunch of Japanese cultists did something very bad on a subway. In the ensuing media panic, I learned that basic solutions like washing soda (sodium carbonate), household bleach (sodium hypochlorite, and diluting it a bit is a decent idea), or even lye (sodium hydroxide, and diluting it is really important), all followed by a good rinse with water - were good ideas. I also learned that acidic solutions were bad ideas, so if Bear Grylls (who nobody'd heard of back then) shows up and suggests rinsing with uric acid, you should probably stop him before he makes an already bad situation worse.

I've never needed to remember that, but at the time, it sounded important enough not to forget. So today, I'm just gonna write it down again while continuing to hope that nobody here, nor anybody else half a world away, on any side of any conflict, ever needs to remember it.

southparkstudios.mtvnimages.com

I know some of the smaller nations you are allied with (Iran, North Korea, and Syria) wouldn't mind starting WWIII, but us grown up countries need to have a sit down. You don't want to fight us, and we don't want to fight you. Hell, I mean us and China have a pretty good business thing going. And Russia, we did the Cold War dance, it was fun and all, but in retrospect it was a waste of both our times and since then we've been pretty cool.

Point I'm getting at is that I doubt you want to see Syria get all chemical weapony, so please use your influence and get them to smarten up. And if they do end up using them, can you please keep some of the other nations at bay if we find ourselves in a combat situation? Even better, perhaps you could guys could go in and get Syria to smarten up? I doubt you want to see chemical weapons used against a population as well, and it would absolve us from getting involved.

BigBurrito: Roosevelt had the same problem.pedobearapproved: david_gaithersburg: Obama makes his yellow cake speech in 3.....2.....1

He can't. No matter what the intellegence is he can't make that speech because it'll make him Bush. He has to wait until thousands are dead before he can make that speech. He knows it and Assad knows it. Assad also knows that Obama, in an attempt to not look like Bush, will take this before the UN, where Russia and China will foul up the works. All that will come out of that will be a light punative action.


Obama does not need to make a Bush speech. He is not actively looking for the answer that always equals war. The Bush administration did not like diplomacy. They scuttled diplomatic efforts that had been underway for over a decade because of a righteous belief system. Prior to Iraq getting underway, Hussein had relented, but war was necessary in the eyes of the administration.

Obama has none of that. We are maintaining diplomatic relations, Britain is applying pressure and expect to see Russia doing so as well, with possibly Iran chiming in as well. Assad is about to become very isolated. Hopefully, he realizes his position and relents. The only ones against that would be other monarchies in the ME, they will become very nervous looking at their own ability to hold onto power.

In short, the British successfully tricked an appreciable fraction of earth's entire surface into a neverending flamewar with itself and escaped virtually unscathed by comparison, making the Royal Family probably the most enormously successful trolls of all time.

He knows he's dead if he uses gas. Why not gas the Jews.

pciszek: Someone mentioned that Russia has major interests in Syria. Would they be likely to defend the current government, or decide that the current government has become a liability and try to take them out quickly?


Russia has a major strategic naval base which they lease in Syria and have extensively developed. Being the practical folks that they are, the Russians are unlikely to give a rat's ass who's in charge as long as they are left alone.

Because, remember, Saddam Hussein had WMD's and was committing genocide against his own people, right? We were played for fools then; lets not get played for fools now.

The real question is, can you live with yourself knowing that your country could have done something to stop it and didn't? Will you just shrug off the millions this country's "leader" would kill to remain in power?


We've seemed to do a pretty good of turning a blind eye to most of Africa, what's one more country that's just going to end up under Sharia Law anyway?

TFA: The nerve agents were locked and loaded inside the bombs. 

OK, I had to look this up. I know what "load" means, but WTF is "lock"??

Apparently the term is made up. Well, it's not a range command and "lock and load" doesn't seem to refer to anything in particular... even loading, apparently.

The military has loaded the precursor chemicals for sarin, a deadly nerve gas, into aerial bombs that could be dropped onto the Syrian people from dozens of fighter-bombers, the officials said.

Initial symptoms following exposure to sarin are a runny nose, tightness in the chest and constriction of the pupils. Soon after, the victim has difficulty breathing and experiences nausea and drooling. As the victim continues to lose control of bodily functions, the victim vomits, defecates and urinates. This phase is followed by twitching and jerking. Ultimately, the victim becomes comatose and suffocates in a series of convulsive spasms.

ya..you guys bring this to the table, and it's all over biatches. You're going to get raped. Don't even think about it.

That could be a lot of fun if the F-22s are actually up and running okay for now. I'm curious to see what they would be like when let off the leash, because an air superiority fighter that you can't see coming is something that should be pants wettingly scary for a military that has to go up against them.

Of course, that is assuming that the F-22 can manage to not asphyxiate its pilot in the process. Last I head it was actually squeezing them to unconsciousness with the G-suits somehow.
