Thread Name: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Subject: RE: BS: chemical weapons in Syria
Ake, I agree with you wholeheartedly. The inference that there are only warmongers
that are acceptable is totally unacceptable. Israel's launching of missiles and joint military exercises with the U.S. in an area which is a tinder box is irresponsible. That's warmongering. It doesn't stop Assad who thrives on the blood and gore of war.
The U.S. through invasion is giving him exactly what he wants, a martyr's wreath around his neck and a so-called surgical strike will not impede his use of chemical weapons in the future. If anything it would make a hero out of him.

"liberal" ideology has been perverted by the "neo-liberal" agendas. The warmongers in Washington have somehow returned to a nostalgia for military might that was prevalent in the Second World War or in what they perceived as the heroics in Vietnam or Korea.
McCain and Kerry may have carried with them a kind of PTSD. Kerry's incursion into
Cambodia shouldn't be ignored.

It has to be said that warmongers in Washington are using the military solution to
aggrandize their power politically. This is not a moral position as they would have you
believe. If the American public protests loudly enough, they could change their minds
in a New York minute but as long as they can fool you into this escapade they retain
political power unequaled in times of peace.

The ideological weapons in this war are more lethal than sarin gas.
