RE: What are your taxes going towards?
Actually this is rather interesting. First bit of news I've actually read about the war that I care very little about in a while actually.

Though I fail to see why you are posting it I&I, there doesn't appear to be any conspiracy theory here.
And the thread title is misleading as this has nothing to do with taxes.

It's difficult to comment since you posted nothing, but the article. What exactly is your point? And what specifically are you claiming taxes are supporting? (Al Qaeda? Syrian executions? Obama? Press conferences?) Who is "your" in "your taxes" - do you mean the US? (This site has a worldwide audience/membership.)

If you have something to say, please say it or why bother...?

I send mine directly to the CIA to further their efforts in creating international conspiracies.

I can't tell for sure, but he seems to be implying that 'the' (by which he presumably means the American) government is funneling money and/or arms and supplies to opposition groups in Syria, who are committing war crimes. Nevermind that in a clusterfuck like this (see: Spain, 1937; Lebanon, 1978; Congo, 1999) there are more fighting groups than stars in the sky, and that summary executions of enemy combatants is towards the mild end of what Assad is doing in order to cling to some power, and that it's pretty unlikely any major western government is supplying anything to anyone in Syria; when we backed the Libyan rebels we got results, damnit!

And also, the link here is to Russia Today. Which, compared to even the pop mainstream news media, is like comparing reading the future by the tea leaves left in your mug to reading the future by the shit stains left in your toilet bowl. One is generally harmless if you don't take it too seriously, and the other is literally shit.

My taxes are explicitly for funding North Korea's nuclear advances. I bet even I & I doesn't know that the US is behind N. Korea's nuke program. Why? They want Kia for themselves and gaining control of it via N. Korea will ensure cheap cars for all Canadian citizens. Not Americans mind you, we would never embrace such trashy cars. But America #2 (aka, Canada) would love them (this is a completely different thread topic but yes, Canada is really just America the Sequel: Liberals and socialists gone wild).

Clearly you people do not see the dangers of the U.S. government! ...who also run the rest of the world via the CIA and the No-Such-Agency.

What with the U.S. threatening intervention should evidence of chemical weapons usage be found, and it's suppression of the working class and such! and they have iron grasps on the Turks and Russians, it is all clear in that article!

Good thing I don't pay U.S. taxes. (if) I did pay taxes (Aus) they'd just be used up in boring things like infrastructure and the medical industry....

Where did my tax dollars go?

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
