Aren’t there US citizen’s living in Syria. Why can’t WE use Russia’s lame-ass excuse to bomb the hell out of Syria?

The U.N. is a useless drain on American taxpayers.

Why would the Russian want to help the Americans at all?
Syria is yet another country that the USA destabilized in order to hurt both Russian and Iran. As the USA under the Obama administration is being outplayed in both arenas it makes no sense whatsoever for Russia to capitulate. We know, as per the Nuland recording, that Ban Ki Moon (and the UN) are little other than rubber-stamps for American actions and as such have lost all credibility.

It’s a case of empathy or death for “men in charge” of groups in Syria. Children are the innocent victims of their madness. The Syrian Civil War puzzle requires multifaceted solutions, thus all neighbouring countries and other nations must help.

The fact remains…Yarmouk, Homs, Yabroud, Aleppo etc. are microcosms/test cases. What moves are required on the Syria Cube now ? What is a possible focus point/central organising principle that all concerned parties can focus on ?


Which way out the mess ?

International Peace Conference – First Week’s Special Focus “Syria and Middle East Emergency Polio Vaccination Program 2014″ SMEEPVP2014

Tent of Meeting style. 4 days. Mon. to Thurs. 09:30 to 14:30. With follow ups. Treaty/Peace of Westphalia style with set piece/time limited meetings and more open ended deliberations. M/E City with real gravitas asap. Special platform. See…”Syria‚Äôs Polio Epidemic : The Suppressed Truth” by Dr.Annie Sparrow (The New York Review of Books)

To facilitate the IPC-SMEEPVP2014 Brahimi and his team should move to the Hotel Intercontinental Jericho ASAP. Meetings will then be required with Abbas, Erekat, the King of Jordan and others.

P.S. A Rubik’s Cube no matter how diabolical its configuration can always be solved in twenty moves if the “G-d Algorithm” is employed.

This is a power struggle by the U.S., plain and simple.

The entire region is a basketcase for the insane. Everything is about religion, power, and who gets to control the area. For a holy land area, the blood soaked soil over the centuries prove these people will never be peaceful. Why would anyone outside of this, ever want to be a part of it? Syria is just a start, and this will continue, because they are never going to be peaceful.

Perhaps if we (the US) had acted earlier, but now that the choice is essentially the Tyrant or Al-Qaeda, I believe this is no longer our problem.

This would be easier if the United States IS willing to do it, because they have influence with the Arab countries that
are supporting terrorism in Syria
saudi arabia, qatar, jordan and turkey, if they stop helping the rebels that would end the suffering of the Syrians today
but if you know even the USA are training the rebels in Jordan and turkey so this is so ugly not only for the Syrians but for the hold world

Typical such time limited references:
“the worst use of weapons of mass destruction in the 21st century”
Makes you wonder whether those time limits are a manner of speech only or put on deliberately.
Still remember how much an by whom it was used during the 20th…

There’s nothing to salvage. Neither side really wants peace.
