LIAR!! Hey assclown!! Zionists have nothing to do with your god assad's murdering spree!! Furthermore, McCain and Clinton have only condemned your god Assad's murdering escapades along with almost every country in the world except for your hero's IRAN, CHINA and Russia who love to control their own people even to the point of killing them!! So, for the millionth time!! Get the hell out of the west and LA that you love to BASH SO MUCH and get your flippin' brainwashed rear end back to Syria. Help Assad with his destiny of 14,000 plus murders of his own people!

If you read what is really going on, you would not talk like this. McCain is just talking, he cannot even control illigal immigrants into the US let alone sent an army over to Syria. Hilliary is trying to get peace talks going and get Assad to stop dropping bombs on people, what is wrong with that????

If those psychopaths McCain and Clinton really wanted to stop all of this bloodshed, they would tell the rebels to stop trying to overthrow the Syrian government by force! Instead, they are just constantly continuing to encourage them.

What's wrong with that, dipsy doodle - is that it's pure fiction.

It's the Russians that are trying to get peace talks going and it's your Hillary that keeps sabotaging them and most of the world knows that by now, since it's hardly rocket science. Maybe it's time you booked a return flight from your stay on Fantasy Island?

Maybe you all should read up on Rambouillet, or more accurately Shambouillet, when Hillary Hubby told the KLA rebels to just feign cooperation for show and "we'll make the demands so onerous that no cease fire agreement can ever be reached and that'll be our cue to bomb."

Read up, and understand how the Clintonian Universe operates.

You are not even in Fantasy Island. The Russians have finally stopped sending any more weapons, up until this week it was regular shipments, The Chinese do nothing just vote. The Russians at least attend most of the meetings but usually send some flunky to give the negative vote. I do not like Hiliary but I do support what she is trying to achieve in Syria. She has said some harsh things against Russia and China and was instrumental in stopping the weapons from piling up but just pissed of the Chinese to earn the rebuttle that she should not talk that way.

if you think the Russians can do a better job at stopping the killing go for it get them back in the game and not just protecting their post on the water, ie naval base.

Yes and let Assad shoot them all, I know that is what you want but it will not happen.

The Rebels now control 50% of the territory in Syria. Assad still has the large city but the territory Rebels have gains gives them space to organize and put their plans in action. Assad is going to run out of soldiers one day soon if they keep up the rate of defection.

The rebels control nothing. As s soon as Syrian tanks and helicopters come in, the battle is over. Defections are small and insignificant.

Stop it!! Stop it! Stop it with the lunacy!! Afghanistan was training terrorists responsible for murdering almost 4,000 American LIVES on 9/11. What are you saying clown?? That we should have just stuck our heads in the sand and cried our little eyes out?? Not hardly!! You may sit back and take it in the rear but most Americans were for taking out terrorist training camps responsible for 4,000 American Deaths!! Stop the ignorant nonsense!! Iraq's Saddam Hussein created a far greater humanitarian nightmare than Libya. "The Butcher of Baghdad" slaughtered, at minimum, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis -- far more people than were killed in Bosnia and Kosovo, where President Clinton ordered military force for humanitarian reasons. Yet, when weapons hunters found no stockpiles of WMD in Iraq, the dwindling number of pro-war Democrats turned against the war never mind the sickening sight of thousands of Iraqis found in shallow graves.
That Saddam possessed stockpiles of WMD, having used chemical weapons on the Iranians and his own people, was not in dispute. All 16 U.S. intelligences agencies thought so "with the highest probability." France, the United Kingdom, Russia, Egypt, Jordan, China, Israel and even Saddam's own generals assumed Iraq possessed WMD. Even U.N. weapons inspector and Iraq War critic Hans Blix thought Saddam likely possessed these weapons. As Blix admitted at a 2004 University of Berkeley forum:' I'm not here to have gut feelings. But yes, in December 2002 (three months before the invasion) I thought Saddam had weapons of mass destruction." The non-unilateralist Nobel Peace Prize laureate Obama, unlike Bush, sought no congressional war resolution. Obama, therefore, ordered military action against Libya "unilaterally" -- without the congressional approval that he once argued the Constitution demanded.

As Obama further explained in his December 2007 statement, "In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent." So a president, according to Obama, does not need congressional authority -- provided the action involves "self-defense" or "stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation."

What is the "actual or imminent threat" to America posed by Libya?
Ritter served from 1991 to 1998 as a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq in the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), which was charged with finding and destroying all weapons of mass destruction and WMD-related manufacturing capabilities in Iraq. He was chief inspector in fourteen of the more than thirty inspection missions in which he participated.

In January 1998, his inspection team in Iraq was blocked from some weapons sites by Iraqi officials stating that information obtained from these sites would be used for future planning of attacks. UN Inspectors were ordered out of Iraq by the United States Government, shortly before Operation Desert Fox attacks began in December 1998, using information which had been gathered for the purpose of disarmament to identify targets which would reduce Iraq's ability to wage both conventional and possibly unconventional warfare. UN Weapons Inspectors were thereafter denied access to Iraq. He spoke on the Public Broadcasting Service show. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Ritter

We do assclown!! Try the Six Day War Imbecile!! From early 1965 to the Six-Day War in June 1967, the PLO through Fatah pursued a consistent policy of border attacks, particularly along the Jordanian and Lebanese borders. Criticism of these activities by the Arab governments and by local public opinion persuaded Fatah leaders to adopt a new approach known as "the entanglement theory." This involved using sabotage to force Israel to adopt an offensive position, which in turn would force the Arabs to step up their military preparedness. This cycle of action-retaliation-reaction would lead to a gradual escalation of tension on the borders, and eventually to the Six Day War in 1967. Arab mobilization compelled Israel to mobilize its forces, 80 percent of which were reserve civilians. Israel feared slow economic strangulation because of the costs of long-term mobilization and the damage of the shipping blockade. Furthermore, Syria continued to launch attacks on Israeli farmers cultivating land in the demilitarized zone and on Israeli fishing boats and other craft in the Sea of Galilee, shelling from the commanding Golan Heights that rise dramatically to the east of the border areas. Israeli leaders feared the consequences of absorbing an Arab first strike against its civilian population, many of whom lived only miles from Arab-controlled territory. Incendiary Arab rhetoric threatening Israel's annihilation terrified Israeli society and contributed to the pressures to go to war. In 1965, 35 terrorist raids were conducted against Israel. In 1966, the number increased to 41. In just the first four months of 1967, 37 attacks were launched.
While Israel consistently expressed a desire to negotiate a peace with its neighbors, there was no matching sentiment on the Arab side. In an address to the UN General Assembly on October 10, 1960, Foreign Minister Golda Meir challenged Arab leaders to meet with Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to negotiate a peace settlement. Nasser (Egypt) answered on October 15, saying that Israel was trying to deceive world opinion, and reiterating that his country would never recognize the Jewish State. Nasser's rhetoric became increasingly bellicose; on March 8, 1965 he said:“We shall not enter Palestine with its soil covered in sand. We shall enter it with its soil saturated in blood.”
A few months later, Nasser expressed the Arabs' goal to be:“The full restoration of the rights of the Palestinian people.” In other words, we aim at the destruction of the State of Israel. Other Arab leaders from Syria, Jordan, and Iraq joined in the rhetoric and preparations for war, increasing pressure on Egypt's President Nasser, perceived as the leader of the Arab world.

Oh, stop the silly childish ignorant nonsensical rants you filthy Arab scumbag! You've been told this a million times but STILL COME BACK WITH YOUR FILTHY IGNORANT LIES AND PROPAGANDA!! We give billions to other foreign countries!! 3 billion a year to just to Pakistan alone!! Now, do some flippin' research and get back to us scumbag clown and tell us how much we give to Arab Muslim countries! Who took foreign aid money from us and other countries and banked it in numerous accounts as his people suffered! Why it was your hero Arafat!! At least Israel does not use foreign aid and train terrorists, harbor terrorist or build mosques to incite hatred!
Some reasons US needs Israel as its staunch ally:
A. It’s the only democracy in the Arab sewer region known as the Middle East
B. It shares boots on the ground Intel with the US Intelligence
C. 60% of Israel's Jews have originated from Arab countries look Arab, and speak fluent Arabic its spies can penetrate where no US spy can
D. Israel took out Saddam's nuclear reactor saving thousands of US GI lives during Desert Storm.
E. When the US needed Intel on a new Russian made radar, Israeli commandos raided Shadwan Island, killing the Egyptian garrison and airlifted the whole radar station to US Intelligence.
F. Recently the Mayor of Los Angeles accompanied LAPD officers to Israel where they were trained by Israel anti-terrorism experts to better protect US citizens
G. Recently Israel formed an military alliance with Canada, Cyprus, and several major African nations, and soon will form an alliance with Vietnam.

The anti-Israel whiners should do some soul searching to try and see what their problem is. Whatever the reason for their personal phobia, psychosis or political reasons they may have it is of no consequence or importance. Israel is very important to the US and it is in our national interest to keep it strong as our ally.

A better question for the Syrian Nutjob LIVING IN THE USA AND TAKING ADVANTAGE OF IT'S FREEDOMS IS to ask what countries haven't THE USA helped. GET THE HELL OUT OF THIS COUNTRY AND PACK YOUR REAR END TO SYRIA!! Almost everyone IE France, Germany, Russia and many others hate our country. They never repaid American for rescuing their sorry rear ends during WWII and helping to rebuild their countries.
Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO. DeGaulle said "I wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible."
Rusk responded, "Does that include those who are buried here?"
DeGaulle did not respond and you could have heard a pin drop.

Our country has aided every other country in the world at one time or another. We even help our enemies, when Iran had earthquakes a few years ago, we were there to help. When the tsunami hit we even helped out those people wearing Osama bin Laden t-shirts.

We contributed massively to the post WWII rebuilding effort in both Europe and Japan.

The US gives billions of dollars annually in aid (and not just to Israel for those Israel whiners) to other countries, provides humanitarian support, forgives the debt of other countries and lends troops in times of military conflict (which shouldn't be confused with invading another country, such as Iraq).

When in England, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of
'empire building' by George Bush.
He answered by saying,
"Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return."

There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, "Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?"

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied "Our carriers have three
hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are
nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to
shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to
feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships;
how many does France have?"

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included
Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French
Navies At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?"
Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."
You could have heard a pin drop.
