Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

Iran wants to be left alone, while waging war against Israel via its proxy Hezbollah. Consider that Russia have rebuked Iran, stating they won’t accept the statements that Israel should be destroyed and wiped off the map. Consider also that it is Europe who seems to want to protect Iran from Trump's...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

If you've been following the most recent news, Syrian forces going to help the YPG (Kurds) in Afrin against Turkey, it seems contrary to what the Western media portrays of Assad seeking the destruction of his Syrian people. Why do I say this? Well, let me rewind a number of years. Before I became mo...

Re: WAS dropping atom bombs on WWII Japan an immoral act?

K: My father-in-law escaped from Poland via Russia as a boy. Ah, so you wake up with a lass of Polish descent, as well? My bride is 100% pure Polish - which translates to 100% stubbornness, LOL. Omg, is that where it comes from? I thought it was just a woman thing. Don't ever expect a sorry or &quo...

Re: WAS dropping atom bombs on WWII Japan an immoral act?

What are you trying to say Blessed, that there were zero? I guess there really were no nazis either. :P

My father-in-law escaped from Poland via Russia as a boy. Whole family ended split up around the world. Sadly, I never got to meet him, soo much I'd have liked to talk about.

So, we stood up to Japan's aggression - how the heck did we lose respect over this???

Actually, respect was lost for the US avoiding entering the war until Japan attacked.

Re: WAS dropping atom bombs on WWII Japan an immoral act?

Japan were barbaric. What they did during the war to many different people, it's grace they weren't wiped off the map completely.

Rational thought is usually what determines what we believe.

Ken

And stimulus from the surrounding environment acting upon receptors (e.g., eyes, ears, etc) is what determines our thoughts.

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

I sincerely hope you're wrong. They'd never get Congress to approve it, or to send troops to fill any resulting power vacuum. Iraq opened a lot of Americans eyes to the folly of such. Watch what Lindsay Graham's response is. I'd love to be wrong, but sadly, doesn't look like I am. I can't find Lind...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

Phil, if you truly believe that the US should leave Assad in power, otherwise there will be another power vacuum like in Iraq (and lets not forget Libya too), then you should know that the US, as explained recently by Tillerson , is in fact looking to remove Assad. (I just found this earlier) Note i...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

Found a video, which provides some background understanding, for those who don't understand the varying groups, why they're fighting Turkey, US involvement with the groups and like:

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

I don't know what you talking about Rick? It's morning here. Perhaps you're getting cranky. The recently bombed Syrian army (by the US), which also killed some Russians, was to protect their SDF anti-Syrian Kurds. Around 100 Syrian fighters were killed. SDF are now turning north the help the YPG fig...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

I'm more disgusted by the US strike killing SAA and Russians. You guys have heard about such in your never fake news? No doubt Australia is involved in such. What did Trump say in the elections? Wouldn't it be great if the US worked side by she with Russia to take out ISIS? What a joke! When they bo...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

After thinking on it, you are right about one thing Rick. What this is likely about, is Israel getting their knickers in a knot about Hezbollah, who are working alongside Syria, Iran and Russia (at the behest I believe largely of Russia who got many different groups together talking at the table). H...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

We're not going to see eye-to-eye. We disagree on the facts. Using your same logic however, when Israel flys its drones and/or allows the US to, then all nations surrounding Israel have a right to bomb the crap out of them? No, I don't see that it works that way. Iran is working alongside Russia and...

Re: Russian Jet Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

I really think that card is overplayed. Syria isn't a threat, neither is Lebonon. But yes, Arab Muslims as I understand generally hate Israel and would like them gone, but that doesn't represent everyone in such nations... and those extreme types that do, well, we the US-Coalition left a big void in...
