The Syria Question


Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

And while we express concern over the slaughter in Syria, let's not ignore the slaughter that's going on in Egypt, from the guns of the military coup....

Surely, we're not ignoring the Egyptian slaughter just because Sesi happens to be OUR dictator?

For whatever it is worth, the U.S. France and Great Britain have infiltrated, interfered and done harm(for their oil) to many Middle Eastern Nations since after WWII. They hate and don't trust us for good reason.


All of this only our interference started WAY before WWII, we basically drew the map in the middle east for our own purposes, creating countries that have no historic, religious or ethnic basis. We've them stuck our oar in to topple, prop up or destabilise different govt for our own agendas.

We have no idea which side we should be on in this conflict, Assad has been a friend to the west for years and suddenly he's the bad guy, who are the opposition ? what happens if they take power etc etc

If there can be a UN resolution and UN troops can go in as a peace keeping force then i'm all for it but US and UK troops once again getting involved in things that have nothing to do with them again is ridiculous.

Unless we have Syrian secret agents posting here, what could anybody possible say that I would find unpalatable? There are no board strictures against decrying despotic regimes (well, unless you believe Washington, DC, is the site of one).
