"Politics is the Art of Looking for Trouble, Finding it Everywhere, Diagnosing it Incorrectly, and Applying the Wrong Remedies"
Please. People can not be that gullible. Please tell me it ain't so.
I think 9954 just thinks everything is the same. Orange and Banana? Same. Moped and Bicycle? Same. Dog and Badger? Same.
That's not me saying we should go into Syria. Complete opposite actually. But stop with these false equivalencies...
Does anyone honestly have confidence that the federal government can conduct an investigation that leaves no doubt which side used them? Do you trust them to give an accurate account of it? I certainly don't. It's a tragedy but not our concern.
I'm with you. If the UN actually led the investigation and repercussions I may feel differently. I am tired of sacrificing our troops and citizens money in a situation that has no direct benefit to the US.
Let's apply logic: Do you really think that with the US and most western nations breathing down on Syria's neck they actually would be so gutsy to use chemical weapons? Especially with UN inspectors already inside Syria?
And why don't we apply the same rules when the rebels were caught using chemical weapons? We are now supporting an AQ run revolution?
And I don't think we should go in there. At all. And yes, I think they would use chemical weapons, despite the entire Western world having them under a microscope. I don't think we should support either side. We should offer aide to the refugees and the civilians where necessary (food, water, etc), but that's it.
I guess I just get tired of this whole shtick where these people act like everything is a purposeful distraction to keep people from caring about certain things. No, talking about gay rights isn't a distraction from the fed. No, voting rights is not a distraction from Afghanistan. It's almost as if people act like the population is incapable of comprehending two things at once...
