How pissed off is the West right now?
Take a look at this. A senior UN official has suggested that there is evidence of use of chemical weapons by Syrian rebels.

I'm no fan of Assad, nor of conspiracy theories. However, I am also no fan of the Syrian rebels either, and I think it's pretty obvious that the West (especially America) are desperate for a reason to invade in support of the rebels.

It'll be interesting to see how the America, the UK, and the UN react to this over the coming days. I'm betting on an attempt to discredit the story. After all, stories like this make it far harder for them to openly support the rebels.

I couldn't reach the West for comment, but there is a Forest behind my house and I'm going out there now to get its opinion.

Note: it doesn't do service to blanket entire countries as "the West".

Do you mean the mainstream media in those countries? The voting citizens of those countries? The political and financial elites in those countries? As well as the financial and politically disenfranchised?

Because very few and specific peoples opinions matters when it comes to setting in motion plans that do or don't get people murdered or maimed.

RE: How pissed off is the West right now?
I am no fan of dictatorship at all. Yet from China's history, I know that the one who overthrew an emperor wished to become another, who might be the very victim of the dictatorship of the former emperor. So for the Syrian rebels, I would say I am not surprised ...

And for Obama, who said "the bottom line is this would of course be clearly unacceptable" to use chemical weapons, I think he is just going to put up a performance showing ' kid, you are too naive to expect no double standard. Besides, what am I supposed to do ? Supporting a dictator who doesn't provide benefits like the Saudi Arab emirates do ? ' Or he could also just say "the bottom line has changed, therefore nothing is wrong" or "the bottom line is for the Syrian government. We don't have a bottom line for the rebels"...

Want something? Then do something.

Not at all. I just really don't see anything at all positive about lumping individuals in with groups they don't voluntarily belong to. In my case, I live in the west because that's where my parents fucked and they don't travel much... it weren't my choice.

Likewise, don't consent to or approve of the murders that are committed by the people who call themselves government on the continent I was born on.

Quite simply, I'm not the west and I don't like to be labeled a murderer. Big Grin

I don't think the U.S. should have anything to do with Syria. Besides we are already being blamed for starting the war.

It doesn't make sense but that is what the people in that area think. Basically any kind of conflict or death happens it's America.

I don't see why we should be involved at all, it isn't as if the Syrian rebels are their own Washingtons and Jeffersons, they are religious extremists and will merely prop up an Islamic state to replace the Assad dictatorship as what replaced Mubarak in Egypt. Seems to me Assad would be lesser of two evils for the West.

RE: How pissed off is the West right now?
I say the western world should just leave it all alone, let the Syrians sort it all out.

Even if the UN gets involved and decides intervention was required, they should give the job to a local member nation, leave the rest of the world out of it.

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.
