Of course Syria comes out and says children and civilians were killed. It doesn't matter what good America tries to do, it's always wrong. Other countries bitch at us for not doing enough, doing too little or doing nothing at all. It's like working for a boss who is never happy.
We always need checks and balances when we take military force, but we should do what's best for our country. The safety of our troops is #1. I don't care about dead terrorists because they would not think twice about killing you or me.
8 funerals today. 8 less terrorists in the world. No problem.
I don't know if I believe the level of validity to this. Was there any US media source or did the story originate from Syria? I know I'm not high up the chain and privy to this kind of stuff but I think we'd hear chatter if there was a mission crossing the line, I dunno.
Either way, we can't continue to allow these idiots to flood into the country and if this is the only way to stop them so be it. Obviously it's not wise to stir up a hornet's vest with Syria since we're already thin as it is fighting 2 wars, so I doubt we'll do much in way of striking them without real credible knowledge of the area. I just can't see us getting clearance to cross into Syria like that, my friend is providing security on the Syrian border right now so I'll ask if he knows anything. He said they get shot at from inside Syria every day, can't do anything about it so if we hit them back this time F*ck 'em. Hope this doesn't turn out bad though.
Ignorance of the tribal nature of these people, terrorists usage of that culture away from major urban areas and the importance of Damascus in Arab and Middle East history will cause excursions like this to go deeper into yet another country. And like Israelís into Lebanon recently - it could end up expensive.
you know logan.....I can't tell by your sig if your just that racists...or if it was meant to be funny in some off sort of way.
would have made much more since if you'd substituted "socialist" in that remark.
I hope you're right Old Lady, but initial reports from media outlets suggest otherwise.Originally Posted by BBC News
