      This is a hard one because I strongly am against our Country getting involved in other people's conflicts but after seeing a video on Sky News this morning recorded by an activist in Homs it was quite shocking just to see exactly what they are going through and even to see children injured from all this.

      The activist in the video was really pleading with the UN to take action and to realise that things are very bad and that they can not carry on living like that and for once I actually thought to myself maybe it is time they did get some help however whether other Countries will choose to is a different story altogether.

      I don't think our own governement should intervene at all, because its none of our business, what goes on in other countries.

      I've moved this into debates rather than the News forum.

      foreign governments should remove their spies and mercenaries from Syria and stop causing civil war in Syria.

      I think we should nuke them. We all know Obama's dying to know how awesome it would be to press the red shiny button on his desk.

      You're taking someone seriously with an avatar like mine?

      I agree, because that stupid phrase is used often by complete idiots so it's not really working as a joke...
      (and first time I heard somebody making joke out of it)

      It's also offensive to call a He a She magic especially as it clearly states his gender. :)

      What if the person who's supposed to take offense just finds it funny instead?
