i don't even think presidents really matter anymore. obama and bush's foreign policies are looking eerily similar. obama won the NOBEL PEACE prize for fuks sake. but i think all presidents are just puppets. if some powerful hidden group wants war, then the president has to oblige. if he tries to stand up and tell america and the world the truth, he'd probably be assassinated...

good shit that I live in lithuania. Completely not dangerous...

Dammit, just leave russias gas alone.. I wanna be safe.
Its super clear that obama is mad aggressive. Ive read our president interview after meeting with him, and she said that obama is changing his views to be more war orientated. Fvck this shiit. Dude even wants to increase the % of our GDP that goes to military. Whats the point? We would do shit with our 5 tanks and 2 planes...

I think people overrate the power of the President. He's just a figurehead. There are far more powerful people pulling the strings behind the scenes.

well, that makes me think.. I think that its 90% that this is true.. then whats the point of that constant "bad" Syria propaganda..

USA wants the oil and to make a strong move on Russia. But who needs strong USA, and lets say not Russia? Are Jews pulling the strings.. or some couple guys who own everything.

I dont care, I just want peace.

ha,ha.......one of the world most dangerous Nuclear Power Plants is in lithuania........the Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant..........it´s shot down now but

"It was sited next to the largest lake in Lithuania, Lake Drūkšiai (part of which lies in neighbouring Belarus) which provided the plant's cooling water. The temperature of the lake has risen by about 3°C (5.4°F), causing eutrophication.[10] The plant's discharges of radionuclides and heavy metals have accumulated in lake waters and sediments.[11] "

Lol kevinnyc is one of the most brainwashed idiots on thIs site. It's sad that people can be so goddamn blind and eat wtv a corrupt state is feeding them.

WMDs, chemical weapons, terrorists... These are all such vague terms that can be attributed to anyone as they see fit, and carries with them the worst negative connotation and an immediate call to arms.

Chemical weapons, the term has become a joke, a real life "they're coming right for us!" hunting loophole.

It's not just the stupididly, it's the arrogant stupidity.

Chemical weapons are a loophole, because they are not defined well? You are purely and ignorantly talking out of your ass.

For those of you who wish to learn more, you can read about the Chemical Weapons Convention here, and how it defines chemical weapons here including the weapons know as "nerve agents" and you can read about the chemicals known as organophosphates here and their use as nerve agents When you are familiar with the symptoms of exposure of nerve agents you can read the Reports from Doctors Without Borders and see if they report the same symptoms. You can go online and look for camerphone footage shot in several surburbs of Damascus.

Even 9 days ago, it was become much, much clearer a massive attack ocurred.

You're arguing the wrong point here. Nobody's okay with anyone using chemical warfare, there's zero proof Assad's forces used them. Zero. And yet I can go on YouTube and watch a bunch of animals gassing rabbits and yelling "allahu akhbar" every 20 seconds.

Obama will be addressing the situation shortly from the WH. This should be good.
