I can't be bothered posting this article, the link is here (http://www.msnbc.com/news/888057.asp). I just think this obvious racist crusade against the Islamic people is very sad and very ugly for the US government.

So Syria might have chemical weapons and U.S. wants to do something about it.

How about if all other nations decide to put sanctions for U.S. because they have most chemical and biological weapons in the world. Plus second most nukes too.

When is the precidential election in the U.S. ?
Equals how long world has to suffer this one madman who thinks he rules the world.

the strange thing is....it's not even illegal for countries to have chemical weapons.....it was an issue with Iraq because of the post-first gulf war sanctions.....but almost ALL middle-east countries have LEGALLY chemical weapons....

Is this another attempt to try and rule the Middle East? When will Cowboy Billy understand that he's only the president of the USA and NOT the leader of the planet :rolleyes:

Public opinion (including mine) was very supportive of the war in Iraq......but we aren't stupid. We can differentiate between Iraq and Syria.

If GWB does this to Syria it will be great -- at getting him NOT re-elected ;)
