Forty-six people were killed in Iraq last Sunday, as it becomes clearer and clearer U.S. strategy to pacify that country was a dismal, bloody, expensive failure....

Not for me! I say let them kill one another. In fact, the bad ones will be killing the lesser bad ones and be blamed for it. In the end we are going to be placed in a position of killing the rest anyway. What's the difference?

tired1, I saw the interview, too. It was on PBS, hardly blocked by TPTB. Yeah, Assad's a sweet guy, just misunderstood. Reminds me of that sweetheart Gadaffi who did some really great interview acts. I liked the one after he sent a team to crash a loaded 747 into the ground at Lockerbie, Scotland.

I watched a interview, 58min, with Assad on the internet just yesterday, he sure does appear to be a very well educated man who appears to be trying very hard, to lead the people who elected him. But as he says, and from what even I have read, all the out of his country interference and support of brutal rebels who cut the hearts out, then EAT the heart on camera to show the world, of any who support the ELECTED president. And those sick rebels are being supplied and supported by UNIED STATES of AMERICA. In interview, Assad obviously had no teleprompters and no prepared answers, just live and from his own mind, and I wouldn't be suprized if this interview has been BLOCKED or taken away by now, because it does not agree with what TPTB want non-war profiteers to know

the u.s. trying to police the world is like a local police officer going to a domestic dispute. he may intervene, stop any actions, but when he leaves the same thing will repeat itself sooner or later. many officers will tell you those are the worst calls to receive.

How is it common sense that Assad did this? The UN reports have yet to be issued. Ask: "Who has the most to gain from a U.S. strike against Assad's forces?"

There are only two reasons the US has any interest in the middle east, Isreal and oil. The muslums have been killing each other for thousands of years. No good do'er that thinks he's smarter than everyone else is going to change that. Make use of the oil shale in our own county, triple the military aid to Isreal and close all bases in the middle east. It will be cheaper in the long run. And maybe, just maybe by not trying to tell the muslims how they should get along with each other, and another generation of them killing each other, they may stop trying to bomb us.
