I think that we are already engaged in a large scale shadow war. The attack discussed in this thread, coupled with Report of Blast at Iran Nuclear Site to me indicates that Iran crossed the red line and Western powers are doing everything they can to preemptively strike without this conflict turning hot. The lack of coverage of this in the Western media is insane. I think the US, Israel, Russia, and China are all moving their chess pieces in the middle east and no side knows exactly how to proceed at this point. The regional instability and the risk of chemical/biological or nuclear weapons means everyone is playing a high stakes game of brinkmanship. Comments coming out of Syria and Iran are inflammatory. I think US/Israel/Russia/China legitimately wan't to avoid WW3 and are communicating with one another, but in regards to geo politics Russia and China have different objectives and would like to see a different outcome than the US/Israel. In essence, welcome to the Colder War.

You must have some inside info about Assad's true nature as a cool, rational and considerate guy that would never want to be thought of as a devil...could you share this intimate information about Assad?
Yet, Assad slaughtering his own people is not devilish in any way?
