Fri, September 21, 2012

Send their GPS coordinated to North Korea and tell the glorious leader that he better not test any bombs there.

Of course the V.I. cannot differentiate between Syria and Iran. IT also failed (deferred success) to find the ball hidden in a 2X2 box of cubes. IT's inability to sort the red pens from the black is well documented.

I should add that your position on the Syrian government is rather hypocritical. You criticized the Canadian government, sorry Harper directly of sending Maher Arar to be tortured by the Syrians. By defending the Syrian government and subsequently the Iranian government who tortured and killed Zahra Kazemi( a Canadian journalist) you believe that their actions against their people are justified. I find your stance confusing however it does why we get all the trolling posts about how much you hate the Americans. Any country that is not allied with the United States in anyway can do treat and do whatever they want to their own people. You have confirmed two things for me at least. Number one, you are a bigot and two, have a remarkable lack of respect for human rights. You can spin and twist all of our words to your heart's desire however it doesn't conceal your own hatred. Consider yourself very lucky you weren't outed when you used the moniker Ontario on here by the way.

Brush it off all you like and try to change the subject however YOU WERE

COMPLETELY WRONG. It is quite obvious you are a TROLL. You quickly peruse the headlines, quickly putting it up on this forum without giving one thought to what the actual subject matter is. Indeed, you post an article clearly biased towards the Syrians when those who have a critical mind know better. You can't compete with anyone who posts here on an intellectual level so you spew b.s. and use bullying behavior to make up for the shortcoming.

Tell us all Mrs-Brigand why Turkey does not have the right to criticize and take action against a dictator who is SLAUGHTERING his own people. Turkey is housing thousands of Syrian refugees which I do agree with. Turkey is not without its faults(their actions against the Kurds) however in this case they are taking action while the world sits on their hands showing how ineffective the UN is.

As well I find most people who post here are aware the rebels are not blameless as well. While they are not indiscriminately killing civilians like the Syrians are with their artillery, innocent people have been killed because of their religious backgrounds or any association with the regime.

Your ignorance and consequent posting of support for the Syrian regime is trolling. Frankly you are embarrassing yourself on this issue and I am enjoying it immensely. Backtrack all you like, the stupidity you just displayed won't be deleted.

As for my own banning it was deserved and I can admit to that. Most of us on here and I have taken it to the extreme have pleaded to no avail for some moderation on this forum. You make a mockery of that and FRANKLY again after the tragic case of Amanda Todd, cowards like you who hide behind their computers believing in their anonymity are being outed everyday. Food for thought there pal.

OK. I admit I said Iran when I meant Syria. Fact of the matter is Turkey forced down a Syrian passenger jet on orders from America. paul though says Turkey only forced down an Armenian jet. But who really cares about that?

But paul. You still havnt explained why you put such a disgusting swear word into your post that forced the mod to eliminate your post. You have already been banned once but have come back with 2 names.It is obvious anyone who swears like that on a family site should be banned again.

In the long term, how the Western nations should handle Iran and for that matter all the Middle East oil-producing countries, is to achieve energy independence. Then they can just blockade them and deny them anything more technologically complicated than a toaster. If Iran can't blackmail the rest of the world with oil, it becomes irrelevant. In the short term, there probably is no right way to handle Iran. Any action, ranging from nuking them to an enhanced embargo to giving in completely has its downside. There are no best options, only least worst.

My choice would be an enhanced embargo, unfortunately that requires either the agreement of the Russians and Chinese(which won't happen) or a US lead alliance which has the balls to stand up to the Chinese and Russians and call them out for embargo violations. While Obama might surprise people with his decisiveness, his hands are tied at least until after the election. He'd probably get the support of other western countries. If he loses though, Romney could also be that decisive, but wouldn't be able to garner the support from other western countries.

Now I read that Turkey has ordered its air space off limits for Iranian planes. This after the Americans told Turkey to force down an Iranian passenger jet.( paul says an Air Syria plane is not Syrian but whatever)Turkey needs the money the Americans give them for using their airspace for bombing missions so Turkey will always do what the Americans demand

"The Syrian Arab Airlines flight was forced down at Ankara airport by Turkish air force F16 fighter jets on Wednesday evening. The 35 passengers on board, who included 17 Russians, later complained bitterly to Russian media.

Four people onboard have been beaten up, two crew and two passengers, as they tried to force them to sign documents,” an air stewardess was quoted as telling Russia Today television station.

The Syrian authorities accused Turkey of “air piracy” and insisted that all the equipment on board the plane was for civilian use. "

LOL nice post there Mrs-Brigand. If you are going to post such b.s. at least try to some facts straight. Number one the plane was not Iranian. Number two the Turks are doing this on their own accord as they unlike you are fed up with Assad. Number three, both Syria and Turkey have banned flights from either country overflying their respective territories.

If you seriously cared about those peoples lives at least have the respect to mention where the plane was from. Armenians don't take well to being called Iranian uneducated fool.

Now here is one for the conspiracy theorists. Send someone into Syria and lobe some shells into Turkey so everyone thinks Syria did it. Turkey shoots back so Syria really does start sending over the shells. Turkey isn't going to stand for this and decides to invade Syria having the balls to do so since they are a NATO country and know we will support them. In jumps NATO and while we are there Iran considers us a threat to them and allies with Syria. Then the real S**T hits the fan. That is how we may take care of Iran.

paul off topic as always says..

"Tell me MOD, how much farther are you willing for this go."

They let you go even further by allowing you to put a disgusting swear word in your post. Thankfully your post was deleted .

I see the Americans got Turkey to force down a Iranian passenger jet putting all those peoples lives in danger.Turkey will do whatever the Americans demand as they need |American money
