1. Just they did in Iraq....and Libya

Create an excuse to invade, destroy the country's infra-structure, displace as many people as possible, get rid of the country's leader, then move in and take the resources....oil, gas, pipeline, minerals, whatever.
Same thing happening in Yemen, with Saudis as our ally aggressor.

Remember...Syria was on the original PNAC list of countries the Cheney gang planned on taking out ages ago.

3. But that would make you

 

an Assad apologist. You must love the "fact" that he gases women and children.

You know, I jokingly say this but I think the only way liberals would start being anti war again is if Trump wins in November, anything else and its follow the neocon agenda with a D at the helm.

I wish ordinary democrats would show as much love to their foreign brothers and sisters as they show to BLM people, this world would be a much more peaceful place.

4. No, that does NOT make me an apologist

I can actually think in other than black or white, either-or terms.

And no need to put words in my mouth....my point is clear, it is about the Neo-con agenda which was started back in Reagan's time.

5. Sorry

 

I was being sarcastic. I was pretending to say what the average war supporter would have said to you.

6. Sometimes hard to hear the sarcasm unless you know the person well on these boards.

That's why we have the sarcasm icon...

but ii is hidden under the main panel of icons and you have to click on the 2 faint dots to open the selection box.
