    One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. I don't know who to believe when it comes to this Syrian mess.

    Listen, just because Obama has lied to you about your health care and pretty much everything else in no way means he is misleading you here.

    Keep the faith, hope and change.

    Wait a minute.. Obama care is working isn't it?
    Yeah... I thought so.
    So, what's your problem? You sound rather paranoid.

    I mentioned this months ago.
    Everytime we intervene in the middle-east we create an even greater monster.

    It comes down to the questions I asked in my http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?subject=When_is_it_justified_to_go_to_war%3F&threadid=160972 thread.

    Believe me, I totally agree we shouldn't get involved.
    However, if you already are involved (to switch the theme of the afore mentioned thread around), when can you justify just walking away from it all?

    Hey... we spawned a psychotic monster and weakened everybody else...
    Uh... Goodbye! Wish you well!

    See? That doesn't sound very pleasant either.

    "Is Obama misleading the world to war? Depends on how you define 'misleading'"
    --Trevor Timm (24 September 2014)

    "...if the (US) government says they're not misleading you, it might be
    only that they've secretly changed the definition of 'misleading'."

    and who told you it was working?
