Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.

Navy ready to launch first strike on Syria - Telegraph
What can I say, but that war criminals will be war criminals.

There seems to be no stopping such US crimes against humanity!

How?
How is it? You introduce issues which simply do not speak to the situation in Syria. For example, a basis for intervening in Syria... "might be violation of the 1925 Geneva Protocol, which outlaws the use in war of poison gas." How does that square with your hypothesis?

We do not know if chemical weapons were in fact used or who used them.

There is no basis for the US to attack and kill innocent civilians in Syria.

I have no doubt chemical weapons were used. I just don't want another war happening in the ME. When chemical weapons are used on our children and citizens, then yes.

And I know that sounds heartless, but it is how I feel at the moment.

I think this is the wrong thread for me, anyway. Another one has been started so I believe that one will fit me better. Seems this one wants everyone to think exactly. the. same. way.

So yes, I am speaking to your position.

As far as my position being from a place of "emotion" and not "fact based"...

Quote:
Russia and China Prepare for Global War

On December 7, 2011, the EU Times headlined “China Joins Russia, Orders Military to Prepare for World War III.

A Beijing Ministry of Defense bulletin said then President Hu “agreed in principle” that deterring US-led Western aggression’s only possible by “direct and immediate military action” or threat thereof.

He ordered his naval forces to “prepare for war.” BBC reported the same story. He wants stepped up preparation and readiness.
That's the Chinese position.

As far as the Russian's (from the same link) position...

Quote:
Russian General Nikolai Makarov said:

“I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons.”
And just what event might start this WWIII?

Quote:
Beijing’s bulletin discussed a US-planned “ultimate (Middle East) solution.” It’s readied in case of regional nuclear war. It said Washington will attack Syria and Iran with lethal biological weapons. They’re “intended to kill tens of millions of innocent civilians.”
Furthermore, Russia has two warships parked in Syrian ports and have been conducting large scale military manuevers in preparation for war.

I'm sorry, but my position is anything but "emotional" and without "facts".

Some of us never forget Hiroshima and Nagasaki and My Lai and napalm thrown on civilians in WWII and firebombing of hundreds of thousands in cities in Japan and a war of aggression in Iraq and millions of dead in Vietnam.

The US has a history of perpetrating war crimes on innocent civilians,

I do not want to see us carry out more war crimes in Syria.

WWIII is not going to be a conventional war; actually it should be much worse than that. This should be mankind's first WMD war, and he's just itching to pull the trigger.

If we see a US attack, I will assume an intent to kill more children in Syria. I will see every child who dies as a deliberately killed child who is the victim of US war crimes.

how about not inciting chemical warfare for everyone's sake? The grownups die just as easily as the children... heck the grownups were once children themselves. And just because nations toss uniforms on grownups, it doesn't make them any less human or impervious to death.

nothing quite so stabilizes a region like warfare. And if you can get the world powers to square off in a regional conflict with WMD, now that's a stable situation.

You know, it gets forgotten to the point that people don't even know it happened. During WWII, DuPont developed a clever little device that spit fire sticks in a circle, US military then dropped a gazillion of them on Tokyo and managed to burn one million civilians with their own homes; one million dead in a 24 hour fire. The mission was a great success and all the commanders involved received medals.

Of course you will see what you want to see, Sherri. I have not doubt of it. Still it is a very bad scene over there and hard to know what is the right thing to do. Unfortunately this one could be the tipping point. I don't think Iran is the tipping point. I believe Syria is. So long as everyone is cool with Russia and China retaliating when we strike I think we are good to go here. ( because they will )

To me it's like lighting the fuse to WWIII. It is most horrific that Al Qaeda is now using sarin gas on the children of Syria but terrorists have no conscience. Dying is dying. No matter what the form - the end result is the same. Look at Hamas. They do the same thing to the Palestinian children. It's horrific. Using children as pawns in a war.
