Well, of course I understand that Russia is getting help from syria regarding intelligence and I would not be surprised if what we class as "freedom fighters" by supporting and giving them aid are in fact also considered terrorists by the Russians who are helping Assad.

So im left with a bitter taste in my mouth. It would seem that there are forces at work who have spent the last few years, supported by the west, attempting to topple assad. Which makes me wonder who exactly ARE the real terrorists????

Is it time for world war 3? Well, when the real state of the worlds financial system cannot be hidden any longer... you can make time for it.

Um... the US was extensively drone-striking and doing bombing runs against ISIS targets long before the Russians showed up.

The short answer is you can't win the type of war being fought on the Syrian/Iraqi border with bombs. Influence it, yes, win it, no.

I WANT to say that they're halberds, but I know that's not right. The axe-head is missing or inverted and it's got the two hooks instead. I think that's a.... Bec de crois? I know I'm not spelling that right. It translates as crow's beak, dammit!

I think it is a halberd and that you are correct (also known as a Swiss voulge).

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

I don't have a quote but apparently the pope called it world war 3. I heard it on TV so it must be true. Smile

RE: Is it time for world war 3?
No, and here's why.

The Kurds just took Sinjar yesterday. A major strategic city between ISIS's two main strongholds of Mosul and Raqqa, effectively cutting off supplies between the two cities.

ISIS is fucked. Completely fucked. They're being pushed out of Iraq by the Kurds and Iraqi forces. Nobody around them supports them. Both sides of the civil war in Syria oppose them. Western countries are bombing them to death. You don't defeat someone like ISIS overnight but they will be defeated.

You don't need to put boots on the ground because that just causes more harm than good. Both in death toll but more importantly in the long term future because you're not create a generation that resents and hates you.

No war needed, the poverty and in turn the need for education to keep up with time, will take care of it.
