Barack Obama: ...but, I better not see you using any chemical weapons.
OMG! Is that a wooden club?Made mostly out of the chemical cellulose?It’s a Chemical Weapon! Invade!! Invade!!(joke, okay?)
The UN…. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! We shoulda pulled out of that long ago…
“Why did that stop the day Obama got sworn in?”--Obama is not trying to create a climate of FEAR, FEAR, FEAR.He’s looking to make things better for ALL AMERICANS.
But the UN is not good for anything except backing fascists.
Actually, we know that Iraq had chemical weapons. We know this because Sadam used them against his own people. But, I guess that doesn’t count because it is not what you want to believe.
Oh, please, narrowmind. Bush OUTLAWED showing photos of our dead soldiers returning home. Obama turned that around. One reason that we’re not seeing so many reports of dead soldiers is that we’re bringing them home alive.
@ ARodney and narrowminded:
What he said. And in addition, the sad reason we don’t see reports is that people in this country have moved on. The war has lost any importance on them, and, unless they have family members who have volunteered to serve, they have mostly forgotten that “there’s a war on”.
My suggestion would be to re-institute the draft with no exceptions for any reason. When relatives of congressmen, governors, big-pocket campaign donors, etc., start getting their draft notices, you’ll be surprised how few conflicts we’re willing to join, and how quickly we will exit dead-end wars with no goal and no hope of achieving much of anything.
Simple fact, it was Don Rumsfeld and Cheney who provided Saddam those chemical weapons, a long time ago, that he used on his people (well Kurds). They did it through transactions with Germany, just like the nuclear development material WE gave him. WE supported him against Iran. WE supported bin Laden and the Taliban against Russia, and now face some of those same weapons, WE gave them.
CYA gets more difficult every day with U.S. involvement. The U.N. actually does (as screwed up as the are) a better job of “peacekeeping” than the U. S. acting alone, or even when we refuse to support the U.N. in their much more difficult role.
The UN? The UN has not done its job in decades. But you are correct , it is “SUPPOSED” to be their job.It isn’t “supposed” to go to war. If one wishes the U.N. to intervene as peacekeepers, it needs the consensus of all. If you wish to change its mandate, change its mandate AND provide the resources. Abolish the veto powers of the elite 5 and you might see more positive actions under the auspices of the U.N. (it already manages to achieve much despite the veto powers of the permanent security council). It isn’t a police force nor was it created to be one despite its “police action” in Korea (Russia had boycotted the security council in in1950 in protest for ROC (Taiwan) taking up one the 5 permanent seats instead of the PROC (China) and so did not veto the U.N.‘s intervention).If you want an international army, create one. The U.N. isn’t it, not under its present form at any rate.
‘Where are the WMD’s? Where are the WMD’s??yawn Syria has had an active chemical weapons programme for decades. They didn’t get it, nor did they get a boost to their already sizeable stockpiles, from Saddam sneaking some across the border. Sarin gas is easily made from 4 easily obtainable or manufactured ingredients.
‘Can you give us your source that proves that they got no wmd from Saddam?’You want me to prove a negative.No, ansonia, the onus is on you to prove inconclusively otherwise. Not speculation, innuendo or hearsay. I can tell you, though, that Russell’s teapot orbits the sun. Prove it otherwise.
Assad must have them because Hannity said so! Over and over and over after we found none in Iraq. Once again the neo con (I didn’t serve, but I like war) locksteppers want us to jeopardize our troops, and then they can complain that they would have done it better/differently/at less cost/roses and chocolates etc.
‘I say that Saddam DID indeed pass some chemical weapons to Syria.’What are you, a child? You say so? Oh, well, that’s alright then, if you say so, it must be so. :-|‘Obviously it is your opinion, but you made it appear that it was a fact that can’t be argued.’By all means, convince me there’s conclusive evidence that shows Saddam snuck chemicals across the border just before Iraq was invaded. Until then, Syria didn’t get any freebies from Saddam. If you cannot prove it happened, it didn’t happen.‘And it’s not exactly proving a negative. If you are correct that it didn’t happen, there could be physical proof that it was impossible’Wha…? Huh? What are you, a child? :-|
ha! How did he not have a brain-freeze writing that out?
‘OmQ did say it didn’t happen because, well, he said so.No, I say it didn’t happen because so far there has been no credible, conclusive evidence supporting the notion of Saddam sneaking wmds across the Syrian border.Bertrand Russell used his celestial teapot to illustrate what you’re attempting to do.
