Been there done that....and continue to do so. But answering a question with a question is not my cup of tee, or my french fries. To each to his own.
But for site choices, how about opening a poll in the form of ummmm...ohhhhhh...i dont know,... how about, "does the U.S. or Syria have as a
sovereign state the right to defend or attack ?"
Now that's the type of cerebral activity you're more than likely to engage net user's than what this site has as monthly page views on a monthly
BTW. simply extending an open palm of friendship.
Thanks, yes I understand, however, this exercise for this thread was very simple, intentionally. It also allowed, as my threads do, the opportunity
for the poster to not only answer the very direct and understandable question, but to add thoughts and comments.
I must say that I have been extremely pleased with the responses in answering the single direct question which seems to equate with the view of the
general population. GREAT JOB ATSer's!! Additionally, many also chose to add specific personal views on the subject that related to the topic and
that also was handled respectfully and thoughtfully.
So, you too have the opportunity to do one or the other or both in this thread, your choice, and it would be respected.
Now as far as your request to begin a new thread, perhaps titled...""does the U.S. or Syria have as a sovereign state the right to defend or attack
?" Sure, that could be created, why don't you have a go for it?
There many examples of 'sovereign state nations' that have been involved in both sides of the coin....throughout history. Then the debate begins,
what caused one country to attack another? The country that was attacked, did they have the right to attack back with a powerful and devastating
response? If a country led by say, a Dictator, and the Int'l community and surrounding countries withness brutal atrocties against it's onw
citizens, does another country or country's have the legal, moral right to step in and help, maybe with sanctions..attempts at negotiations..but if
that fails and 10's of thousands of citizens are being murdered and millions are running for their lives as refugees into neighboring country's,
All interesting questions/thoughts and I am sure would create an interesting thread. Within THIS
thread alone, many responders have
articulated very well their thoughts on the Syrian example. So what say you?
Again, thank you for responding. Oh, I love golf, I'm sure you meant to say a cup of tea
, unless you meant a cup of tee's
the golf course....LOL. Just having fun.....have a great day!!
