Then please explain why George W. Bush said in a 2006 speech AND in his own book that we did NOT find Weapons of Mass Destruction?

By definition, Chemical Weapons are not even close to the same thing as Weapons of Mass Destruction. Blister agents are not equal to enriched Uranium by any stretch of the imagination. Even Condoleezza Rice made a distinction between Weapons of Mass Destruction and Chemical Weapons. She claimed Weapons of Mass Destruction were only Nuclear Weapons....not trying to be difficult, just saying.

Assad is not innocent.... Innocent until proven guilty is a standard in some countries, and Syria is not one of them. Its only fair Assad and his government should be extended the same judiial courtesy they have extended to the people they have murdered - yes?


And the number of Iraqis and Afghans murdered on behalf of the DICK and BUSH administration should bear the same judicial courtesy? YES?

No idea... Ask President Bush.

Wikileaks is saying otherwise...

Actually the US considers Chemical, Biological and nuclear weapons as weapons of mass destruction. Doesn't matter if you agree with that view. It is what it is.

Secondly the sanctions / UN resolutions put in place on Iraq fter the 1st gulf war up until 2003 have absolutely no wording that says Iraq can have limited quantities of chemical / biological / nuclear. They state none at all and we know this not to be true.

Secondly when Powell addressed the UN with the evidence he discussed more than nuclear weapons programs.

There have been discussions about the Syrian nuclear program, the one Israel leveld, actually came from Iraq. Documents captured showed Husseins goal was to get out of the sanctions and then restart the program. A bulk of that program was said to have been sent to Syria.

You dont find it unusual that right now we have Iran and Syria stating they will attack Israel if Israel goes after Iran or Syria, only to have a few years ago an Israli airstrike inside Syria with absolutely no retaliation?

It begs the question why...

I am waiting for Assad to unleash his chemical weapons on the Syrian people. Assad's desperation grows with each defection... It grows with each civilian his forces kill. With the body count where it is there is not one country who will be willing to take Assad into exile, with one possible exception of Iran.

The ICC is going to do their illegal action just as they tried to with Libya - going after Assad for war crimes.

Hence his desperation and apparent lack of interest in his own people...

Nope... You are confusing out right and intentional murder committed by the cowards who hide behind their religion while killing in Allahs name and combat operations.

Of course the civilian body counts would be a lot lower had the cowards who hide behind religion while killing in its name acted honorably by not intentionally placing themselves into civilian / religious locations while attacking coalition forces.

Call it hypocritical or whatever as I dont really care. The US did not intentionally target civilian populations, let alone indiscriminately firing into civilian groups.

Assad can't claim the same...

Of course this all could have been avoided had the terrorist not attacked, intentionally, civilian airliners and buildings which had no military value what so ever. Your argument reminds me of the argument peopl make who dont know history and constantly state the US is the only nation to ever use nuclear weapons while ignoring the overall facts.

* - Japan attacked the US, not the other way around.
* - Japan, like Germany, had a nuclear program.
* - Had Japan or Germany made it there first we would have a different outcome than the one we got.

The ones to blame for high civilian casualties are the fanaticaly radical Muslims who dont understand that they are defiling their own religion while trying to claim they follow it to a T.

Check the Quran and the parts that say suicide is an affront. Check the part where it says non combatents are to be left alone. The government of Afghanistan at the time was non existent. The Taliban were never recognized as the legitmate government, with only 3-4 nations recognizing them. We invoked chapter VII of the UN charter for Afghanistan and as far as Iraq goes its apparent the UN was perfectly ok to not do their jobs simply because US and British forces were "peacekeeping".

So.. coming back to Assad his days are numbered and the end cant come soon enough for him so the syrian people can get on with their lives with a government that represents them and not the Assad family.

How can you take everything faux news says as gospel ?

I watch BBC world, and RT , just to see the differences from each side of the current situation.
On top of that, I like to check in here for "alternative" news sources.
I believe everyone has their own agenda and media is a powerful tool for swaying public opinion.
Each one shows a very different story to the other, and the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

The motto here is Deny ignorance, not promote it.

Assad wont have the same fate as Gaddafi, from the recent videos the rebels dont seem to have that much support and they lack of it so what they do? turn to use children as soldiers.

If what you say is true about Assad's chances of overcoming a situation where he is being accused of currently being the most brutal head of state currently in power...I'd have to wonder when the party invitations and phone calls will start to pick back up.

maybe he'll hang out with William and Kate or visit the White House and give speeches to an admiring audience in the future.

I will admit, the guy is nothing like Gaddafi or Mubarak, he's young and hasn't really done much of anything noteworthy outside of his own land. he won't literally come to that type of end.

but its amazing that some people easily brush aside the dead bodies in the streets of his cities and act as if Fox and/or CNN are to blame for what the world believes and that Assad is the victim of a smear campaign; while at the same time if what may or may not be happening in Syria was happening in the US...you'd believe everything Fox wrote.

world leaders at the end of their careers aren't the only ones that suffer from an inability to come to terms with reality.

Reading the news today it seems that Russia is beginning to distance itself from Syria



Russia will not deliver fighter planes or other new arms to Syria while the situation there remains unresolved, the country's service for military co-operation said on Monday, according to a Russian news agency.



While the situation in Syria is unstable, there will be no new deliveries of arms there," Vyacheslav Dzirkaln, deputy director of the service, told journalists at the Farnborough Airshow in Britain, Interfax reported



This could signal the boldest move yet by Moscow to distance itself from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad whom it has defended in the U.N. Security Council from harsher sanctions.


So maybe the pressures of the western nations are finally swaying the Russian's away from supporting the current Syrian Govt and Assad. Hopefully this trend continues moving forward...

i just read that too.

its not really a healthy myth to tell someone they can kill their way out of a problem.

its weird that an Ophthalmologist thought first of a military solution...almost as if he's not in control of the situation.

:shk: He said that but then goes on to say this ...

He alleges that the 15,000 dead people in his country are not his responsibility and that the world should turn its attention upon the Americans, who are the real culprits.

... which proves that he does indeed have a lot in common with those people.


And at 48 years of Age...Assad feels that he is far more knowledgeable concerning the world than everyone else.

Freak'n meglomaniac.

Why quote part of what I said and take it out of context ?

"I watch BBC world, and RT , just to see the differences from each side of the current situation.

I believe everyone has their own agenda and media is a powerful tool for swaying public opinion.

I know full well that BBC is just as trustable as CNN, or RT for that matter. Each has their own agenda.
