      We are witnesses of a dictator, who has no hesitation about killing his own people. The question is why did Russia stop the UN to invade Syria?

      Beats me as to why they stopped it, all it is doing is giving them more power to kill more of their own people. It's awful what is happening over there but the awful thing is it's not showing any signs of stopping and I believe it could turn into a war.

      Because it's true or because you know that's what they will do?

      We are talking about human lives which are put on a card. How do you dare to involve the financial factor? Show some humanity, for god sake!

      Sure, we'll rush right over spending billions on their saving as our economy crumbs and thousands are left homeless because we have no money. Not to mention all the armed troops we'll lose for helping out a country in civil war.

      who's saving those lives?

      The only thing the US will most likely do is give supplies to the side we want to win. We aren't going into direct war.

      It seems like Keith really wants us to go into war if he's so hellbent on this.

      Then we all come to the conclusion that USA's army has no place in Syria.

      This post and your opening post more or less contradict each other.
      Your saying USA has no place yet you asked why did Russia stop the UN.

      Well Keith's the only one saying we are going to war. I don't see the point in us going.

      the real question is not if there will be war but who is sponsoring the opposing sides in Syria (and elsewhere)...
      war takes money, a lot of money.
      "rebels" are doing job for somebody.
      who that might be=:timebomb:

      I'm wondering why Russia and China stopped the UN. What are the motives for this decision.Interesting, isn't it?

      Although I still trust Russia's foreign policy more than America's.

      Russia doesn't exactly have the most friendly foreign policy either.

      Yeah but they at least don't wanna war in every single f***n country. They still have some self-esteem.

      There's quite a few wars Russia is involved in with other countries, they're just under our radar since the US doesn't care about those countries. Let's not count the countless wars Russia is having within itself.

      It's mostly the mass media portraying the US as war hungry, but if you look at other sources, the US is not as hated as MSNBC or CNN are trying to make the US sound. Hell even most Iranians have no problems with the US. The only person in Iran who has a problem with the US is the president, and he actually has no power. The Ayatolla Komenei (sp?) is the real one in charge, and he has no beef with us. It's basically like if Joe Biden was trying to start a war with China, but nobody else in the government gave a s**t. (inb4 someone thinks we're going to war with China)

      can you inform us about the wars outside of Russia that Russians are part of and the wars "Russia is having within itself"?
      what are the other sources stating USA has friendly (or whatever) foreign policy.

      (I am not trying to say Russians are good, Americans bad; I am just surprised by your reply...)

      Well the thing with Russia is is that the US/most of the world has sort of stopped caring about Russia since like 1991, so most of the stuff they're involved in is sort of "under the radar" with what's going on. The wars Russia is involved in recently is: South Ossetian War which is part of the Georgia-Russian Crisis. Let's not forget about the incident in Chechnya wanting to become their own country and Russia not letting it, and there's some other stuff going on with some of the mini republics within Russia in the Caucasus. There's also some slight tension with Ukraine with the Russian Black Fleet being anchored in Odessa harbor.

      That's just off the top of my head.

      The only "unfriendly" US foreign policy we should be familiar is with Iran and North Korea. We didn't go to war with Libya, and with that the US wasn't even the first country involved with it. It was Canada, Italy and some 3rd country that's slipping my mind. Basically 3 countries we wouldn't even think of/care about. We didn't do much of anything in Egypt. China is not even really an issue like some people want it to seem. Plus if you look at it on an economic standpoint it's idiotic to go to war with China. The US is #2 on China's largest export country (#1 is the EU) and China is also #2 for the US (#1 is Canada). Neither side is stupid enough for that.

      So the US hasn't "gone to war" with anyone since Iraq and Afghanistan.




      TL;DR both countries suck as do everything else.
