While it may not be religious theocracy they worship money and murder.
False again: I have no agenda.
Plus that pastor was not a government official.
Secondly a lot of evangelical influence is in US politics and government.
Please, Gaddafi did nothing wrong and there is no real legitimate evidence to say Assad has either. I know Israel loves to scare people about Ahmadinejad but if the threat was as big as they claim then surely they would have already acted, he has done nothing to warrant dislike, does not have or plan to build nukes and it is clearly Israel who is the threat to peace in the region. In fact they are obviously not just a threat because they have been raping peace for over half a century now.

People seem to become desensitized to it all,forgetting that real people are dying.
All you have to do is to realize this could be your family,your children. Jumping to conclusions,or basing on wild opinions,or assumptions,doesnt help,those who died.
ST. LOUIS -- A military chaplains serves as both a religious leader and a listener -- ideally one who can assist military personnel of all faiths. A frequent refrain among chaplains is "chaplain to all, pastor to some." But according to Department of Defense data, the nation's corps of chaplains leans heavily toward evangelical Christianity, failing to mirror the military it serves. Even though just 3 percent of the military's enlisted personnel and officers call themselves Southern Baptist, Pentecostal or some form of evangelical, 33 percent of military chaplains are members of one of those groups, according to Pentagon statistics. And the disparity could soon widen: Data from the Air Force indicate that 87 percent of those seeking to become chaplains are enrolled at evangelical divinity schools. The discrepancy is the result of a number of variables, including a post-Vietnam aversion by mainline Protestant and Catholic seminary leaders to participate in military culture, and the popularity of online chaplaincy courses at evangelical seminaries.
"The special forces guys — they hunt men, basically. We do the same things as Christians, we hunt people for Jesus. We do, we hunt them down. Get the hound of heaven after them, so we get them into the kingdom." These words from a video clip of the head chaplain for the US army in Afghanistan, Lt. Col. Gary Hensley, giving a sermon at Bagram Air Force base, were broadcast widely throughout the Muslim world by Al Jazeera in 2009. President Bush accelerated the efforts that had been underway for the past several decades to Christianize the military and make it into an arm of the fundamentalist Christian movement in America. Hensley was one of many influential leaders in the military who saw the Iraq and Afghanistan wars as essentially a spiritual battle for souls. Muslims worldwide rightly saw this as a chilling throwback to the medieval Crusades which pitted Muslims and Christians against each other, in a "war of civilizations" that spanned several hundred years.
Well the only other solution I can think of that the west would use is sanctions but they usually kill just as many if not more people.

I can't speak for sonnny1 but, why does everyone always go down that route?
Why are there no other solutions suggested?
What are your suggestions besides war?

People are dying. I realize emotions are running high but stop with the lies and deceit simply because it may expose your version of events as a house of cards. [Whichever side that may be] The real question should be,
Who is doing the killings and why?
Not simply sit back and deny the whole thing happened.
