Thumbs up LMAO! Rummy shuts down the pipeline from Iraq to Syria!

http://www.msnbc.com/news/888057.asp?0cv=CB10

April 15 — U.S. forces have shut down a pipeline sending oil from Iraq to Syria, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said on Tuesday. The move came after multiple warnings of possible sanctions against Syria by the Bush administration, which accuses Damascus of giving safe haven to remnants of Saddam Hussein’s Iraqi government and of developing weapons of mass destruction. Damascus rejected the accusations, calling the charges “threats and “falsifications.”

This was an illegal pipeline that was in total disregard to UN Sanction and the Oil for Food program set up by the UN.

This was an illegal war that was in total disregard to UN laws..

The "illegal" word is no longer relevant in this world. There is no laws in a jungle. Everything is "legal" as long as you are strong enough to do that or smart enough not to get caught by those stronger than you..

Now you trump that? Just a few weeks ago you were supporting the war.....but I guess you got envious at the American support for it, seeing how you like to use and abuse what America is

The difference, as you all are so loathe to admit, is that the UN said "Iraq cannot sell oil except for through this program". They did not say "The United States cannot invade Iraq."

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Of course, they didn't say that. They are realistic, they have no means to enforce that, and that for like 5-10 years more US indeed can do whatever it wants. But then things will change..

ugh, i hope everyone realizes that Bush/USA/blah have no intention of invading Syria, Iran or anyone else for that matter

shit, we can barely afford the Iraqi war, we certainly do not have the spare cash to fight another one

all of these "threats" that Powell/Rummy/blah are making are just that, threats, to let the Syrians and everyone else in that region know that we are not to be fucked with

making threats is the normal diplomacy

when yuo think about it, all international diplomacy is negotiation backed by threats, concealed or otherwise - the same applies at a business level with corporations and the like

when yuo have a union leader demanding more money for his members, the bargaining chip is the threat of a strike, for management it's the threat of firing the lot of them and replacing them with a non-union labor force - neither side wants a 'war' and through negotiation or 'diplomacy' a compromise is reached that is acceptable (perhaps not ideal) to both parties. When yuo have a 'war' it's because one side has been so unreasonable that further negotiation is not possible or is a complete waste of time - this is what happened in regard to SH - he was cut a deal back in 91 and he had no intention of sticking to it. The only time he showed any real intention of compliance, was when we dumped 250,000 troops on his border. When yuo move 250,000 troops around the world, because of the expense and logistics involved in transporting them and having them based in the middle of the desert, yuo're already committed to using them because if yuo withdraw them, yuo're gonna look a bit silly if the other dude starts up his shit again and yuo have to go through all that time and expense of deploying those troops again

now Syria is a different matter, their leaders will probably piss & moan at us publicly, but they'll deal with us, quietly behind closed doors so to speak, and there will be no invasion - trust me on this, so far my posts in regard to what was gonna happen in regard to Iraq/war/aftermath/blah has been pretty close to the mark

No, of course, Syria and Iran are out of question. US won't defeat Iran as easily as Iraq, because it's twice as much of a population, because it's mountains instead of desert, and because the idea of "liberating" Iran would be simply impossible to sell.
Syria would be eathier, but in war with Syria it would be impossible not to get Israel involved, and with Israel involved, it would be a very different game..

Well, if my logic is twisted, then so is all the other logic in the world. Illegal is by means of UN Sanction, which has already been stated. But instead of still defending your point (after DH plainly explained) you backpeddled on some prediction that the US/UN involvement won't matter in 5-10 years.
