    Syria and Yemen mostly flies under the radar over here. It's not in the news most days, unless you actively go online and look for it. The general consensus among my American friends and colleagues seems to be that, if enemies of America are busy killing each other, then that's just fine.

    I personally think the US missed a step by not backing Kurdish independence in Northern Iraq. A US backed regime with its own reasonably competent army could do wonders for stability in the region.

    The endless misinformation peddled by the western media about Syria is at the same level as the Iraq war propaganda.

    Assad is getting the Saddam treatment..and you lot are all falling for it again...because Russia.

    Just another day to lie.

    When you are in the middle of a proxy war you have to play the game.
    Nothing outside of the agenda in syria is going to escape .
    The Russian people hear their version..we hear our version.

    The establishment contrils the narrative...they did it in the Gulf..and they do it now.
    If you believe ANY official line from a war zone you are a fucking idiot.

    And yet you'd nuke the innocent Russians who are suffering in the same way that the UK public is on the say-so of our politicians and media?

    Methinks you've not got a very joined-up mind.

    Piers Morgan was grilling the shadow defence secretary today on that point.

    I have never heard such a pile of shit response.

    Who knows what he'd do..maybe let Birmingham be nuked and not fight back to save London.
    The labour party need exterminating alongside the conservatives.

    No one nuking Russians and our absolute promise to retaliate is what keeps it that way.
    Even our small force could destroy Russian civilisation.

    Wikileaks carrying Putin’s water as usual. Misrepresenting leaks from an early stage of OPCW investigation into Douma chemical weapons attack as casting doubt that it happened when the case is actually rock solid.

    Also Mail on Sunday and Independent printing uncritical pieces about the leaks.
