    Thoughts and opinions of the latest goings-ons in Syria, with all this chemical weapon stuff flying around.

    Anyway, I disagree with the things Obama is trying to push. Most other countries' leaders aren't agreeing to it for a reason. It is most likely rebels used the chemicals.

    Chemical Weapons should not be used but I disagree that we should get involved in a war. If get in a war with Syria we will also get in a war with Russia. I can't believe we're sending so much money in weapons over to Syria.

    so much confusion in this thread

    technicaly they should be agreeing to it because the un is supposed to be the worlds police,stop people from using those weapons but they just let people do whatever they want. but the proof that the weapons were used is questionable

    russia would never get in a war over a chit country like syria. russia and china just tell usa to fuk off, but no smart leader would do that, theyd lose because theyd be up against usa, uk, all their allies etc. and would risk nuclear destruction of earth over fukin syria? lol
    i can see russia getting in a war over iran though maybe

    Russia and China need Syria to get access to one of the seas over there. If they loose Syria they would loose a lot of their trade.

    u wot
    russia gets a lot of money from iran which is why i said they might consider going to war over that. im sure they arent worried about losing syria lol, if they needed that trade money so bad then why have they not responded to deals like the one saudi araba offered

    "First, strategic interests are at stake. In Tartus, Syria hosts the sole remaining Russian naval base on the Mediterranean, currently being refurbished by 600 Russian technicians after long disuse. To have to give up this Middle Eastern beachhead would be a shame, as far as the Russians are concerned.
    ˚
    Second, although limited, Russia has real commercial interests in Syria. Contracts to sell arms to Damascus — both those signed and under negotiation — total $5 billion. Having lost $13 billion due to international sanctions on Iran and $4.5 billion in canceled contracts to Libya, Russia's defense industry is already reeling. Besides arms exports, Russian companies have major investments in Syria's infrastructure, energy and tourism sectors, worth $19.4 billion in 2009."

    America is an idiot for trying to be helpful so much. We got involved in a 10+ year war with Afghanistan or some crap that shouldn't only lasted 2 years because the dang guy kept coming back! And now were taking risks with involving with chemical weapons? Sometimes it's better to stay out of things, I want to get out of this country because we're so stupid

    No Syria war pls

    America is not trying to be helpful. The politics is still black and white. It's all about interests.
    @trex Tartus is their only entrance to Mediterranean. Without it, they'd be stuck in the Black sea.

    this is what i agree with if you actually had read my posts, but russia is definately not on their side because they want real commercial interests. anyone who thinks russia wants this for money should actually read my posts

    also did no one even read my first post? 'technicaly they should be agreeing to it because the un is supposed to be the worlds police,stop people from using those weapons but they just let people do whatever they want.'

    I think this is just something caused by the USA screwing something up yet again with Middle-Eastern countries.

    I guess they're just screwed up, so they try to pick wars with countries to gain popularity. I also watched The Naked Gun and The Simpsons Movie.

    I don't think those sources are valid enough to boast. xD
    I haven't been keeping up with this topic, although I keep trying to get into these important USA topics. All I know is that the logic of this isn't too strong. Are we killing Syrians to stop Syrians from killing Syrians?

    what do you mean the logic isnt to strong? its a civil war going on, you act like all syrians are on one team
