It should be a warning to America, but we have failed to heed the Wisdom of men like Oliver North and his wonderful predecessors, such as our Founding Fathers. And also a few others besides: Sir Winston Churchill: Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves. Thus here we find ourselves at this crossroad: "You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory,"

Your ideas of "right" seem very self serving and have little to do with God's wisdom, since they are all in support of the war industry. If the west would attend to it's own problems, many of these issues would never become serious. The US is simply leaving a trail of destruction in every arab country that it is liberating...at great cost of life and treasure, bankrupting us. No more war on the credit card.

Folks, this all is a game of smoke and mirrors, and what we need is the simple truth of what is going on. No more games.

No problem, Robinsky 2. Obviously I am an American and I wish to protect the American way of life and also to avoid putting good American lives in pointless wars.
Now I'd like to know who you are?

WASHINGTON -- The once highly touted Arab Spring has become the Arab Summer -- scorching hot, unbearably dry and very brutal and bloody. Last weekend, as Americans prepared to celebrate Memorial Day and commemorated the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War, Bashar Assad unleashed tanks, artillery and his Quds force-trained shabiha militia to kill more than 100 Syrian civilians -- most of them women and children. Though the atrocities and carnage in Syria continue, little but bluff and bluster is produced by the United Nations and the Obama administration.

In the aftermath of the May 25 massacre, 11 nations...
