Old_Chief_Scott: Weaver95: I just don't understand why we seem to be gearing up to attack syria. If I were anyone living in the middle east I'd think the us is nuts. Well armed and very hypocritical too...but mostly insane. This makes no sense to me.I agree. If it's really about Assad there are plenty of other ways to take him out. My concern is that the so-called "rebel alliance" ( rebel scum?) doesn't really have the backing of the citizenry. It looks more like every man for himself.
nekom: sno man:It's your habit of drawing lines in the sand. Eventually when those lines keep getting crossed you have to do something, or no one will take you seriously. Not that many do in that region anyway...You mean like when Bush said we would NOT tolerate a nuclear best Korea, then when they tested a few nukes we totally did absolutely nothing about it?
WTF Indeed: Nothing will happen. Any strike against Israel would be met with a regime-changing response. Syria knows that they'll lose some missile batteries and logistics so widening the war by attacking anyone else is stupid if they want to defeat the rebels and remain power.
Amos Quito: Most of the Jews that found themselves in Israel when it became a State did NOT want to be there. They were dragg
Amos Quito: This is totally unjustified attack on Syria is Israel's baby.
Gentoolive: Chant with me libtards RACIST, UNJUST, ILLEGAL WARS!Or is it ok when fartbama does it?
cameroncrazy1984: Worked in Libya to implement regime change, didn't it? Didn't require 100,000 troops on the ground like Bush's stupidity.
Oh, boy! Another pointless war in the Middle East! WHOOO!
bluorangefyre: I've come to the conclusion that Republicans unnecessarily beat the drum on action in Syria to lure the President in so that one of three things would happen:1) They'd embarass him in front of the entire world2) They'd finally have an impeachable offense3) WWIII could be put on him
Nightjars: TheShavingofOccam123:It is the Tsar Bomba hydrogen bomb detonation. The largest hydrogen bomb ever detonated.Tsar Bomba was an interesting development, but basically everybody agrees that it has pretty much no strategic value. It was simply an exercise in nationalism.
ciberido: Did you have an actual argument against TheShavingofOccam123's point, or did you just come into the thread to insult and mock people?
lockers: Which all goes back to there being zero upside to starting a war with Syria. The consequences will be huge and the benefits are zilch. Expect this whole thing to blow up in our face.
J. Frank Parnell: Man, that cold war era nuke hysteria still hasn't worn off.Even the biggest nuke ever would only do heavy damage to a couple square miles at most. They aren't the world enders they are in hollywood.If you do see them used, it will be for the EMP effect. You'll be left alive, only to slowly starve to death or be killed when the supermarkets run out of food.
TheShavingofOccam123: I hope all the people who have a dog in this oil fight remember this picture:[edgecast.metatube-files.buscafs.com image 377x237]It is the Tsar Bomba hydrogen bomb detonation. The largest hydrogen bomb ever detonated.Now let's compare the Tsar Bomba with other nuclear weapon detonations.[phobos.ramapo.edu image 438x267]Hiroshima is the second little nubbin on the lower left.Hiroshima has killed over 200,000 people so far--it keeps killing people to this day.I hope people enjoy their oil profits. You're going to end up destroying the world. Literally. Please take your greed and have the hired help shove it up your asses.
nekom: Can't we work out a deal with Russia? How about YOU guys go in there, install a puppet of your choosing and call it a day?

Gdalescrboz: Iran just sealed Syrias fate. The West will bomb Syria hoping Iran follows through so they have a valid excuse to bomb Irans nuclear facilities
Tr0mBoNe: The US has more than enough Tomahawks to handle that.unfortunately.
basemetal: We help, the people will still hate us.We don't help, the people will still hate us.......
