Burr urges military action against Syria

Republican Sen. Richard Burr Wednesday urged military action against Syria.
“Civilized people should be outraged by the deaths of thousands of Syrian civilians and the many more who have been maimed in this horrible civil war,'' Burr said in a statement.

"The Syrian regime's use of chemical weapons against civilians is morally repugnant and violates long held standards of conduct. Short of putting troops on the ground, it is time for the United States and our NATO allies to take necessary, punitive military action against the Syrian regime and send a clear signal to its leadership, and others in the region who may be contemplating using weapons of this nature, that there are consequences for these actions.”

Shezanne Cassim, http://www.coachoutletstorenio.com/ the American jailed in the United Arab Emirates after posting a video parody, http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.net/ was sentenced Monday to one year in prison and a fine of 10,000 UAE dirhams (approximately $2,700). http://www.coachoutletonlineeco.com/
The young American living in the UAE has been imprisoned since April, his family says, http://www.coachoutletonlinesai.com/ for posting what was intended to be a funny video on the Internet.
He was accused http://www.coachfactoryouletnoc.net/ of defaming the UAE's image abroad, according to The National, http://www.coachfactoryoutletrito.com/ the country's main English-language newspaper. http://www.coachfactoryoutletsein.com/
The video in question is a http://www.coachfactoryoutletcoit.com/ 19-minute short that pokes fun at a clique of Dubai teens who are influenced by hip-hop culture. http://www.coachfactoryoutletianc.com/ In the 1990s, the label "Satwa G" was coined for a group of suburban teens who were known to talk tougher than they really were.http://www.coachoutletsia.com/
The video depicts a look at a "combat school" in the suburb of Satwa, where these "gangsters" http://www.coachoutletstoreani.com/ are trained. The training includes how to throw sandals at targets, using clothing http://www.coachoutletmoa.com/ accessories as whips, and how to call on the phone for backup.Cassim's family http://www.coachoutletstoreoesc.com/ says the 29-year-old has been charged with endangering national security.The charges http://www.coachoutletstoreoan.net/ were not read out in court. UAE officials would only say "Mr. Cassim was charged under the UAE's penal code. Anyone charged with a crime under the laws of the UAE is entitled to the fair trial protections contained in the UAE's constitution." http://www.coachoutletonlineaec.com/
Cassim, from Woodbury, Minnesota, moved to Dubai in 2006 after graduating from college http://www.truereligionjeansftc.com/ to work for PricewaterhouseCoopers. http://www.truereligionjeansct.com/
He and some friends made and posted the video online in 2012. He was arrested in April. http://www.truereligionjeanssi.com/ He was interrogated and arrested http://www.mmichaelkorsoutletpl.net/ in Dubai before being http://www.michaelkorsoutletstoreptf.com/ transferred to a maximum http://www.michaelkorsoutletpft.com/ security prison in Abu Dhabi. His family says it was five months before http://www.michaelkorsoutletacs.net/ he was notified of the charges http://www.chaneloutletmobai.com/ against him.

Burr must have decided

Burr must have decided he is not running for reelection.

Why does the USA love War

Back in the mid and late 1980's, the administration of President Reagan were providing assistance to Iraq and Saddam Hussein in their war with Iran. Reagan hated Iran. He knew that Saddam was using mustard gas and sarin on Iran troops but also his own people. We provided him help. Now we are outraged and plan to attack Syria.

Our government and our American Presidents are heavily pressured by equipment manufacturers for war. The people of America do not want another war. The Sunni's who are attacking Syria are largely funded out of Saudi Arabia. This is a Shiite vs Sunni battle.

If we throw money, bombs, or equipment into this fight, we are setting up a possible WWIII. The only winners will be the American war machine.
