about Vladimir Putin, Syria, and the possibility of ww3?

Posted by   + Show Post

from what i understand, Putin has given Syria his support and protection, and basically told the US, if you want to fuck with them, you fuck with Russia.

i think he's accusing the US govt of being behind the chem attacks to get support from the UN to take out the Syrian leader.?!

he has sent warships and troops, tanks all that stuff, to Syria, and supports the Syrian gov't. 


so when Obama says he "has no choice but to intervene" due to the use of chemical gasses being used on the people.....does this mean essentially, that US would be at war with Russia?

in which case, would china back their Russian friends, or their American friends?

where does that leave Canada? 

how far is this going to go? are these the rumblings of another world war?

i am going to throw some clips of Vladimir and what he has said about it in the replies.

Syrian people, in country and all over the world, say it is not Assad gassing the people.

Who are the "revolutionaries", the "rebels", the "Free Syrian Army"? 

The US gets quite involved behind the scenes and has done so for decades.  This is just one example http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2007/03/05/070305fa_fact_hersh

We need to keep our BIG nose out of this, but that's not going to happen because this has been the intended direction all along.  Look at a map of the ME/Asia Minor and think about all the places the US has either bought off with "aid" or just out-right manipulated itself into (Iraq ring a bell).  We have pretty much surrounded Iran.

Quoting D.O.E.:

i dont think you understand.

Mr. Putin does not believe that either rebels or Assaud would gas their own people.

it is being said that perhaps .........perhaps america was behind it to hasten the end of Assaud, they want Assaud out. they are the only ones to gain by this,why would Assaud gas his own people when UN inspectors had just landed, there to look for exactly that sort of thing? it doesnt make sense.

and that is what i have been hearing......(pls dont shoot the messenger)

Quoting tooptimistic:

Its a bit late to get involved now since chemical weapons have been used.  There is now way to undo that.

If we were going to get involved, we should have gotten involved before innocent people where killed with chemical weapons.

We should just stay out of it at this point, and just provide humanitarian aid.

Let the UN deal with it. That's what they are there for correct?

The UN is made up of individual countries, like the US and England. What do you expect the UN to do?

IDK, they seem to get involved in everything else and they are there right now, let them handle it. What the hell are the UN peacekeeping troups for?
