Mike_LowELL: I didn't know that attempting to arouse emotion on an internet message board for my own amusement was trolling these days.
Lt. Cheese Weasel: his data had some truth to it.
basemetal: [850x567 from http://www.popularresistance.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Pepper-Spr ay-Officer-Pike.jpg image 850x567]I want to know what type of chemical weapon first. We talking VX, Sarin, or some strong tear gas that caused some asthmatics to go nuts.
TuteTibiImperes: As long as we limit ourselves to air and missile strikes only we should be able to handle this quickly. If we try to put boots on the ground and built a government over there we'll be looking at another Iraq.
Giltric: snocone: omnibus_necanda_sunt: And if we and NATO do go in, and Russia starts selling weapons to Assad, the political blowback will make passing their anti-gay law six months before the Olympics look like a decree of universal free pony ownership.You need a new scorecard. Can't tell the pawns from the kings w/o a scorecard.So far, King is still hidden, prolly castled long ago and not for your eyes.At the end of the game, both the king and the pawn is put in the same box.
Amos Quito: I agree completely with what you say, but I really need to get some new initials.:-(
Radioactive Ass: omnibus_necanda_sunt: THERE ARE FARKING SECULAR REBELS.DOING NOTHING IS THE BEST WAY TO HELP AL QAEDA.No. Bombing Assad is the best way to help AQ. The secular rebels should have refused to be involved with AQ in any way and let that be known from the start. History shows us again and again that allowing poisonous elements into an organization of any type eventually leads to that poison taking over the organization. Unless the secular rebels are going to literally kill the AQ elements in their ranks after they win then no matter what I cannot support them, and I don't see that happening. I was behind the rebels until AQ joined them, then I decided that letting Assad be Assad was the better choice in the long run.
Maul555: Anyone who doesn't want us to bomb needs to be wishing Obama never made any of those red line speeches. Now we have to bomb or else we lose credibility. if we lose credibility, then anybody can use chemical weapons on whomever they want, because who's gonna stop them? If not the US, then no one will...Syria has called our bluff, and now the bombs need to fall.
Brontes: Nobel Peace prizes don't earn themselves
cman: karmaceutical: Is this the thread where garden variety Fark conserva-trolls pretend to be against this sort of thing?This is the thread in which conservatives and liberals of all sort band together for the greater good
karmaceutical: Is this the thread where garden variety Fark conserva-trolls pretend to be against this sort of thing?
cman: Apik0r0s: Then show us the proof! Or are you still too busy manufacturing it in some Tel Aviv basement office?Remember the last time we went to war over WMDs in the mid-east?AIPAC pays good money to keep your leaders on the string, it would be unfair were they to not earn that money by blowing a few thousand Syrian children into dust. They're just Arab animals, after all.8/10This will get a few bites
Lost Thought 00: Captain Steroid: This is going to suck. >_<We are a few sternly worded letters away from any action, at the least
2wolves: Lt. Cheese Weasel: 2wolves: Lt. Cheese Weasel: his data had some truth to it.You practice to be this factually impaired?If you think you have all the facts, I got news for you. You don't. But if you put some lipstick on that chicken tonight, I'm sure you'll both enjoy it.Nice attempt at subject change. There is no, zero, feedback that Curveball was anything but a talking head that told the spooks what they wanted to hear. Your premise that he was in effect "due" to be correct on something has no basis in fact.
Heron: TuteTibiImperes: The way Morsi was going he wouldn't made Mubarek look like Mother Theresa. The Egyptian Military stepped in to fix the problem before it got out of hand, and once they've handled the Muslim Brotherhood situation hopefully they step down and allow for democratic elections.Israel is our strongest ally in the region, and we need to consider their needs in our operations over there.The Egyptian military never stopped running things. Morsi tried to stand up to them and they proved that. They let that experiment last precisely as long as it took for the westernized urban minority to once more realize it was a minority, and when enough of them were willing to play along with their grandparents' deal to support military rule in exchange for second-hand modernization, they went right back to doing things more or less the way they have been since the Officers' Revolt.At best, they'll allow a greater patina of powerless civilian control to sit in front of their rule; most likely, they'll just run it as an oligarchic council and shy away from the Strong Man excesses Nasser introduced and which threatened to transform into de facto monarchy under Mubarak(remember, he was trying to pass everything off to his son, whereas typically Head of State status has passed on to the next highest ranked military official when one "President" has stepped down or died).As to Morsi, you need to understand exactly what he did. He tried to cut out the military and old military political clients from government. The power to legislate without judicial approval was necessary because all those judges are hold overs from the military regime. He attempted to re-install a democratically elected legislature -that yes, was mostly members of his Islamist part but that's because those are who the Egyptians freely elected; that party won for a reason, and that reason is its candidates got the most votes- which the military had disbanded through the Supreme Constitutional Court, whi ...
Darkrover2: TOO MANY FARKIN PEOPLE
21-7-b: Kit Fister: So, let's see. We have Al Qaeda/Muslim Extremists on one side, and we have an assholish dictator on the other. Meanwhile, the one side is supported by the likes of Iran, and the other the likes of China and Russia. With as much support as China and russia give Assad, this could easily end up worse than either Iraq or A-Stan.HOW THE fark COULD GETTING INVOLVED POSSIBLY BE A GOOD IDEA?!Iran is supporting Assad. Get a clue
Cup Check: ManateeGag: cman: It doesn't concern usyeah it does. didn't you know, we have to the world's police force. any time there's some injustice in the world, we have to intervene. God forbid we let a country handle it's own problems without us telling every other nation on the planet how to run their lives.[300x140 from http://underscoopfire.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Three-Amigos.png image 300x140]"Wherever there's injustice, we'll be there!" Better send these guys in/hot like El Guapo

Thats_Not_My_Baby: I dunno. I remember he used to have good insight on video game stuff. Then some time ago he turned into this. It kind of ruined any attempts at trolling he does for me, knowing he was once a legitimate poster. He should have created an alt.
GleeUnit: Don't forget last night's Miley Cyrus performance
Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: Taxbongo? I'm no fan of the man, but your point is greatly watered down when you resort to childish name-calling.
Old_Chief_Scott: oldfarthenry: Yes - only a monster would poison-gas his citizens. Let's humanely bomb the f**k out of them instead!Ding!What can we possible hope might be accomplished by air strikes?
