Kit Fister: Shhh. Anyone against the war must be a republitard derper. Duh.
Nabb1: We shouldn't be taking sides at all. We're planning to be the Air Force for al Qaeda sympathizers against an insidious dictator. Saudi Arabia wants us to do something. Well, how about the incredibly wealthy Saudis put those fighter jets and M-1 Abrams tanks we sold them to good use. How about instead of the Saudis giving us lip service support for intervention, we offer them lip service support for intervention for a change? The Arab League should be equipped to handle this. Every time we intervene in Middle East conflicts, it seems like we win more enemies than friends. T. E. Lawrence was right.
Kit Fister: No one will care. This won't even get greened.
Biological Ali: They're two separate incidents.
Biological Ali: Even if you assume that the rebels carried out that attack
Gwendolyn: Nabb1: Gwendolyn: Anyone else think Obama pulled this Syria debate to get people to shut the fark up about the Affordable Care act causing the downfall society?Do I think he would bomb people and kill hundreds or even thousands to stop people from complaining about Obamacare? Only if he's a total farking psychopath.No. The bringing it up when we should have done something two months ago and then allowing everything to dick around for a few weeks. I said the DEBATE not the attack.
Kit Fister: TuteTibiImperes: Mike_LowELL: Kit Fister: No one will care. This won't even get greened.I hope it does. InfoWars infromes me like no other web site. If this headline gets downvoted, then it is proof that the NSA has gotten to the owner of this web site. There would be no other explanation.FTFYOh. Its you again.

2wolves: The U.S. used willie pete in Iraq. No ethical high ground in sight.
Biological Ali: Radioactive Ass: I will simply point out to you that the Geneva Protocol of 1925 allow forces to respond to the use of chemical weapons with more chemical weapons.The prohibition is about being the first ones to use them. Link. If in fact the rebels used chemical weapons first then even if the Assad regime used chemical weapons on August 21st they were justified in doing so based upon the only treaty that they have signed regarding chemical weapons.This attack happened nearly six months after the first incident, in a completely different city, and was targeted at suburbs populated by civilians. Even if you assume for the sake of argument that the Damascus attack can be termed a "retaliation" to the Aleppo incident (itself a laughably massive stretch), something like this would violate other international norms, such as those relating to the targeting of civilians.
darth_badger: vygramul: Frederick: vygramul: Amos Quito: vygramul: Somacandra: 2) fark this proxy war shiat.Proxy war?Yes, proxy war.The US fighting on the behalf of Israel.Proxy war.Lol - a moment ago it was on behalf of the Saudis and Qataris. Why don't you and darth badger work out for whom we're fighting and get back to me.Can we agree it is not for the US's own behalf? I know I am not threatened by Syria....No, we can't. The idea that chemical weapons are unacceptable is a useful concept for everyone, including you. It may not seem like it's likely now, but you never know.So if someone on your block was murdered and the cops couldn't prove who did it, then would it would be OK to just execute one family ( you only mean to kill one of the neighbors but get his family in collateral damage) on your block, so people one block over wouldn't murder someone too?
Greymalkin: Both sides are as bad as each other. Getting involved just makes it a 3 way shiatstorm.
Amos Quito: vygramul: Amos Quito: vygramul: Somacandra: 2) fark this proxy war shiat.Proxy war?Yes, proxy war.The US fighting on the behalf of Israel.Proxy war.Lol - a moment ago it was on behalf of the Saudis and Qataris.No, I have always said that it was always on the behalf of Israel. You're confused.vygramul: Why don't you and darth badger work out for whom we're fighting and get back to me.Please try to focus.Here, read this article./Squint if necessary
Frederick: vygramul: I'm not sure what you're saying, but just in case, there's no dispute Saddam used chemical weapons against the Kurds.Saddam and the Iraqi's sure dispute it. They claim it was Iran.
spamdog: - The refusal of the western powers to wait for the UN's report on the attacks.
wahsman: I vote for whatever makes my gas cheaper,dammit. God bless 'Murica!
spamdog: Yeah I'm sure the Syrian government launched sarin gas at their own soldiers.Like someone else around here has been saying: Who benefits? It certainly isn't the Syrian regime that's about to benefit from this attack.
spamdog: He points to an article published by The Daily Caller that alleges the communications actually showed Syrian officers were surprised by the alleged chemical weapon attack. The communications, according to unnamed sources paraphrased in article, were intercepted by Israeli intelligence and "doctored so that it leads a reader to just the opposite conclusion." "
Klippoklondike: Farking Alex Jones, man. You're more likely to get credible information from one of those plastic kids toy phones that make animal noises when you dial them
vygramul: uber humper: Democrat Congressman saying Obama & Co manipulated the intelhttp://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2013/09/05/alan -g rayson-syria-intelligence-manipulatedThe question is why Germany manipulated the intel.
Coming on a Bicycle: skullkrusher: The President does not want to bomb Syria. If the President wanted to bomb Syria, we would be bombing Syria right now. He says he wants to bomb Syria. He actually does not, though. The President is actually banking on NOT getting approval so he can say that he really, really wanted to bomb Syria but he has to listen to the elected representatives of the peopleSo you can look into his mind, eh?
uber humper: Democrat Congressman saying Obama & Co manipulated the intelhttp://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2013/09/05/alan -g rayson-syria-intelligence-manipulated
spamdog: Biological Ali: Do you think that the evidence that Assad's regime carried out the attack is stronger or weaker than the evidence put forward by the Bush administration in support of their claims prior to the invasion of Iraq?I think they're just about the same.
spamdog: vygramul: Not clicking on a potatowars link.Another one shooting the messenger, despite there being credible links to the BBC and Reuters in there.
FnkyTwn: Is there a way to just not see InfoWars posts? Like some sort of setting I can turn on/off? It's almost as if there was NAMBLA news being posted. It's that level of offensiveness, and everybody knows it, probably even those who think it's real.
GhostFish: Inforwars is trash and it was picked by the submitter to get a reaction. If you have a problem with people shooting the messenger then take it up with the submitter who intended for it to happen.
Mrtraveler01: 2wolves: Kuroshin: spamdog: Snark aside, does anyone actually have any disproof of the claims in the video and article?I mean I know it's infowars, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.Not at the poles.Not if it's a digital clock.Then it's only once a day as it blinks "12:00"
Empty Matchbook: Infowars: Continuing Their Ongoing War Against Info!
2wolves: Prophet of Loss: 2wolves: Prophet of Loss: at the behest of the Arabs and Israelis.Ya wanna look that part over Mr. Happy?Both sides are pushing for us to get involved. You have a problem with that?Different factions of each of those larger groups are lobbying for involvement, So is General Dynamics.
runwiz: This is an example of amateurs trying to create fake evidence. They need to leave this kind of work to government professionals.
TuteTibiImperes: Kit Fister: TuteTibiImperes: Mike_LowELL: Kit Fister: No one will care. This won't even get greened.I hope it does. InfoWars infromes me like no other web site. If this headline gets downvoted, then it is proof that the NSA has gotten to the owner of this web site. There would be no other explanation.FTFYOh. Its you again.And you think Infowars has a shred of credibility? Who knows where that video actually came from.Still, is it possible the rebels have chemicals weapons? Sure. Are all of the rebels using them, member of Al Qaeda, or even fighting for the same cause? No.It's a mess over there, I honestly don't care at this point if we get involved or not, but let's not pretend there's some government conspiracy to subvert the public opinion. Your tinfoil hat might be on too snug.
