Poll Shows Little U.S. Support for Syria Intervention

Full story: Inter Press Service

WASHINGTON , Mar. 20, 2012 - Despite strenuous efforts by prominent neo-conservatives and other hawks, a war-weary U.S. public is clearly very leery of any armed intervention in what many experts believe is rapidly becoming a civil war in Syria, according to recent polls.

Americans have had enough of fighting wars in the Middle East. After 10 years in Afghanistan, they have very little to show for all that blood and money spent.

No they have not dummy!! If the U.N. mandates intervention the U.S will follow!! How the hell can you debate someone when everything out of your gum flappin filthy mouth is a lIE!! You never ever link a reference!! WHY! BECAUSE YOU'D PLAY HELL TRYING TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT YOU'RE NOT A LIAR IF YOU DID!! The Reposter is Baaaaaaaack! The Paid Assad Propagandist clown who loves to start up new forums for his master is back!! The real question is??? Why aren't you in Syria, fighting alongside all of your Assad murdering buddies assclown!! Hiding out in New York as a paid Assad lying sock puppet?? Do you see any Syrians Posting that are actually in SYRIA?? That's because Assad has a short leash on everyone!! Funny how you clowns live in a country that grants you all the freedom in the world to write your ignorant filthy lies and propaganda while bashing that same country and Israel. The Syrian people have no freedom so what do you clowns do? You stand up for a ruthless Assad Dictator!! An to top it off, somehow Israel is involved who does not give al-Qaeda orders and never has!! Most civilized countries have elections so when you have brutal Dictators like China, Syria, Iran and the list goes on there is no way to get rid of the tyrants other than by force!! The people are stuck with their ruthless Dictators their whole lives and then when that clown passes, daddy appoints another ruthless Dictator and this is an endless cycle! It's like a nightmare that will not go away!! I don't blame the people one bit!! Ask yourself why the Syrian clown living in New York is not worried one iota!! He's a Paid Assad Sock Puppet! Period!
China supports Syria and guess what? There is NO freedom in China to how many children you can have to the Internet!

@Ayreshire - now that you bore your ass here by not giving a civil response to the article, let see how much of an idiot you really are! I'm sure we would go if ordered, but the fact remains that even veterans are saying it's enough. Further more, don't you ever embarrass Republicans with your half witted comments or ignorant rants about what we as Americans will do. If your heart is that in it YOU GO FIGHT! It's easy to talk shit when you haven't worn the battle.

Dream on clown! It's obvious you don't know what the hell your talking about!! The nurses at the Institute of the Criminally Insane (ICI) have been looking for you all day for you to report for your HOURLY meds and you still have not reported in. Stop clowning around on the public computer at that institution and report to them ASAP!! Give some other patients a chance to use the computer!!

Just ignore that Ayreshire moron. The fool argues and badmouths almost everyone on Topix, and reposts the same stupid idiotic BS all over these forums. He really needs to get some kind of serious psychiatric help.

PROVE I'M NO VETERAN CLOWN!! Stop talking to yourself Lester the molester! Proof that you are a basket case!! The nurses at the Seattle Institute of the Criminally Insane (SICI) have been looking for you all day for you to report for your HOURLY meds and you still have not reported in. Stop clowning around on the public computer at that institution and report to them ASAP!! Give some other patients a chance to use the computer!! Folks, My little mental CHILDISH midget Lester the Clown escapes from that same Seattle Mental Institution, throws out a few Jabs, the doctors catch the little scumbag, then the clown disappears for a few weeks and then he's at it again!! This goes on and on!! He's just upset because I put him there in the first place. When the my little moron learn his lesson? They really need to up his meds and get the locks changed at the institution he's assigned to!
