Russia and China have stepped up their warnings against military intervention in Syria, with Moscow saying any such action would have "catastrophic consequences" for the region.

Zero lost face when Putin decided to shelter Snowden.
Zero is such a child that we may go to WW3 because he can’t stand to be denied.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Isn’t that the objective?
I don’t like being the world’s Bad Guys. I haven’t liked it since Bosnia.
This is what he wants. He’ll use nukes and hope there’s something left for him to rule.
The white hut won’t have a defense against Putin’s missiles because liberals don’t want a missile defense. There’s always a silver lining.
91% of the American people oppose action in Syria. But I’d bet at least half of those still love Obama.
It’s sickening. So put me in the Rootin’ Putin group.
Remember this. Obama can’t do a damned thing without the entire military command and congress being with him.
“As for 9/11, well, Uncle Scam now openly arms and finances Al-CIA-duh to slaughter Christians and the American people got suckered into fighting more Globalist wars and begging for the DHS/TSA/Patriot Act/NDAA boot on our neck. You put two and two together.”
Why are Christians the only ethnic religious group that the globalist elites and their media love to trash? It is accepted bigotry.
Looks like he’s got us in a pickle now.
“Remember this. Obama cant do a damned thing without the entire military command and congress being with him. “
I don’t hear any Republican saying fix the USA and no more wars for our non-interests! They are hedging because they are puppets too, just as they are puppets to amnesty for illegals. They are establishment. The establishment wants war and amnesty and next they want to disarm Americans.
Very concerned about this. One, because I know the community agitator is in charge, and two.........well, the community agitator is in charge.
I believe they want to disarm....out town just notified us that they can’t process permits anymore because they don’t have the administration resources to do it.
I say we should stablished a deterrence against the use of gas warfare.....no deterrence means encouragement of terrorist gas attacks here and elsewhere......if some bombs happen to fall on Russian and Chinese embassy......send our deepest condolences
Not a “proxy “ war against Russia this time. This is lose los and damned stupid, re: evil
However, the winds are turning in a direction not favoring the muslims.....
If Syria's modern anti-ship weapons are operational then we are going to lose a warship or two. If they are not operational then expect Russian force to hit anti-Assad forces in retaliation for our strike(s).
(Of course ground to air just might take out our missiles in which case the administration is just embarrassed and not much more happens)
Next step would be for Iran and Syria to launch an attack on Israel. Both claim they intend to do exactly that so maybe they will. What then? Will Israel simply "take it" or will Israel respond? Should Israel respond then Russian will be forced to respond to that and us to defend Israel and there you have it folks WW3 is on once Russia hits US forces in the med or Turkey.
So the questions are, can Syria hit our ships? Can Iran hit Israel? What assets does Russia have in the region? Does Russia think Obama will back down if he is starring nuclear war in the face? China may want in on the action too, but I think it more likely they will play it smart and sit this one out.
China, for one, is interested in Asia and in Africa. Is trhe US a paper tiger? Does the US panic when a single ship is sunk? The Chinese will definitely take note of how we behave. And the Iranian nuclear program, and North Korea, and others.
Global Power is in flux. The WWI analogy has been done to death, but there is good reason to think that great nations will make some bad choices and then it will all go smash.
True but that does not make it wrong. Russia has been looking for an opportunity to embarrass/bloody the USA. Seems Syria is that opportunity. We have no business in Syria and it is insane to get involved as allies of the Christian killing Al Quada. I think everyone in DC has lost their minds.
