The Syria dilemma

Please post all news, updates, developments and discussion relating to the conflict in Syria and the wider international implications in this thread…….

Putin has just sent a letter to Obama stating his stance on the situation. you can read it here
http://news.sky.com/story/1140518/syria-crisis-vladimir-putins-letter-to-america

Should the UK intervene militarily in Syria?

I would answer no
– we have no evidence there was a chemical attack (david kelly) and even if we assume there was one we have no proof which side was responsible
-it is not our business to get involved when it does not threaten the UK
-we have massive debt and cannot afford another war particularly with Russia and Iran opposing it

The US need to keep their big noses out of the situation “It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional (America), whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.” Putin summed it up in his letter.

Views?

Do politicians make rash decisions in order to make world history??

its strange recently that the world leaders seem to be getting ever more ‘big headed’.

To put things into perspective you can relate back to the days of the Founding Fathers…… Fought for independance, did the right thing, genuine, honest and were real powerful leaders.

Moving through history you get people like lincoln, Churchill, Eisenhower. Great leaders, were well known for there honest motives…….

But recently what the hell is going off.

George W Bush in my opinions couldnt get much worse, but atleast he created a few jobs in America, so along came the saviour, that is Obama…… Dreamy eyed black guy flying the flag for a new america…….
I have never seen such an arrogant, unsympathetic and unempathetic human ever. All he seems to want to do is bomb the living daylights out of others hiding beind the weak mask of drone attacks. Discusting…

Cameron, Blair and Brown were no different, throwing policies and the English heritage and nature out of the the window with their rash views and decisions.

What strikes me is that ive never been to a country or spoke to anyone that wholeheartedly loves their Government. Now with that in mind, dont you think that its time to turn a page, to stop acting like a doormat for ridiculous policies. i often feel extremely patronised when the suppose ‘leaders’ run amock as if us the people are a load of scape goats. Totally out of order….. And especially if there doing all this for some ego trip, or some powerhoused hunger trip. Because at the moment thats certainly looking like the culprit. grrrrr

We all know that Obama, Cameron and Hollande are keen on military action in Syria, but are these reasons a more sinister motive for creating history for themselves.

Would you like a touchscreen computer.

I really cant imagine why anyone would want a touch screen computer.

I used one a while back and it just aches your hands being so high up all the time :/

Whats the deal with that, but at the rate that touch-screens seem to be dominating at the moment it wouldn’t surprise me that it will be a staple part of computer room in the near future mmmmm

P.S IPads are great 😛
