    I greatly prefer these useless strikes to the useful ones.

    They made a point of Trump being a bad boy who is not to be messed around with, without any civilians getting killed seemingly. Good. Got that out of the system now.

    You brought up a good point there, though. It feels like Trump inadvertently did Assad a favour by destroying the evidence of chemical weapons production. So now the mystery of whether he had them or not, can never be truly solved.

    Jeez man way to take a metaphor literaly!!! If it makes it easier for you then alter it to walking down a neighbourhood you dont live in and u see a dwarf try to strangle toddlers in his front yard

    Do you respect his fence + property boundaries and do nothing or save the toddlers lives?

    Bad comparison. More like someone tells you that dwarf strangles toddlers and you set his house on fire based on that information.

    so if they find no evidence then it must be because the Russians tampered with the site

    how convenient...

    The only thing that would make him a Madman is if he truly perpetrated a chemical attack on his own citizens in the face of guaranteed consequence... when the man already has the war one.

    When you don't really have a side that you're rooting for, and you just take a couple of steps back to look at it... the rhetoric cools down quite a bit.

    But don't let that stop anyone from living and dying by the same sword. Go for it. You're all going to lose.

    Lol.
    1. Strong enough to stop it? Perhaps. But it isn't really the strength of the United States that I'm questioning, it's the competence. I don't think there's evidence of any.

    2. That's not true, and even if it were, there's not really any positives either. The States is claiming that they've eliminated Assad's ability to use sarin gas on his people (where have we heard that before?) but not his ability to use deliver chlorine gas.

    So.... you acted liked arrogant, law-breaking, war-mongering thugs, and the grand sum of your achievement (to further extend your original analogy) was to force your neighbour to punch his kids to death instead of strangling them - because, while you don't mind watching kids being murdered, you're very particular about the way you'd prefer them to be murdered.

    To be honest, I guess your real achievement is further proving to the world that the West has no respect for even the laws it helped to enshrine.
    You undermine the rule of law because you'd rather see people being blown up, shot and starved than gassed, and then you still somehow try and make it sound like "doing the right thing" has any bearing whatsoever on your nation's choice of foreign interventions.

    Wrong
    1 state of being incorrect or not knowing what you’re talking about

    2 googling a definition from Webster and not grasping reality at all

    1) id competence wise they acted in the right here,just a pity that other war crimes there are allowed instead

    2)you are contradicting yourself there
    If you agree that stopping these things is the right thing to do then some action is better than complete inaction

    Someone that is foreigner to the country and is funded by another regime is a terrorist. You are just trolling at this point.

    This was the third time the west claimed Chemical use by Assad, they bombed the other time as far as I recall. The posturing against Russia and Syria government could lead to a direct war, Assad is close to stomping the terrorists/rebels that is far the best outcome for civilians in Syria, they deserve some peace after what the West did to the Arab Spring.
