  •  So what would YOU do about the Syrian Civil War? (2+ / 0-)

    I'm sure the people of Syria are more tired of war than you are.

    •  Don't mistake my pacifism... (5+ / 0-)

      ...for unwillingness to defend myself and my family. Or if it came to it, my country.

      I understand that I can sit comfortably in my home and pontificate. But until all options are attempted, violence should remain the last.

      The Syrian people deserve freedom no less than anyplace else. People will continue to die there until one side or the other decides for it to stop, or until the last fighter is killed. Unless diplomacy works, that is.

      As I said it is worst of human behaviors. There has never been a cure for 'greed'.

      There's an International Committee that exists nowadays called the United Nations.  You might wanna check up on it.

      Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman did some shit in office and we got what we got now.

      Your call...

      It's not my problem.  We need to stop treating everyone else in the world like children.
