17. Oh the irony

 

of a poster claiming that I do not understand the complexity of the fighting group in Syria making the simplistic case that I must be pro Assad for pointing out the dishonesty of the Assad must go crowd. Btw, I am pro Syria and if the Syrian people want Assad in power, it is not for me or anyone in the White house to make that decision for them. I mean the civil war the west fueled using the support of other murderous autocracies only killed 500k and destroyed billions of dollars in capital.

You know, I have always wondered how good people stayed silent while slavery and all sort humanitarian crimes against the Native Americans and other oppressed groups were allowed to happen. Then I read posts like this and it all makes sense. All you have to do is convince the people that the "savages" need the west's protection and no matter how damaging your actions are, your good intention is the only thing that counts. That or maybe some politician offered then affordable healthcare to buy their silence. :rollseyes:

Btw, I think Hillary would have easily won had she not been so pro war. That or had the smarts to lie about it like Drumpf did. Bush lied about being anti interventionist, he won. Kerry did a half assed job of it, he lost and Obama played up his "I am the only one who did not vote for the Iraq war"he didn't have a chance to vote) and he won. Trump did the same by saying the "US would be so much better if they had stayed out in the middle east fights" he lied and he won.

See a pattern?
