Selling weapons, even if we have to pay for them, is one of the oldest means of subsidizing home-based industry known. We have done it for a century or more. Why shouldn't they? After all how much stuff have we sold to Israel, that shining example of middle east peacemaking and European colonization.

And so have the Russians (been doing it for ages), my point is that supposed "allies" aren't supposed to be in the business of arming a potential adversary of that "allied". All I stated was if they were going to arm Syria that we should arm Chechnya, yet I'm a "chicken-hawk/war-monger" and Putin is just doing "good business"....

Why the double standard pray tell???

BTW – I am not blaming THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! I am blaming the current regime that has captured our government and is using it for their personal benefit.

Why do you think I only have a "double standard"? I have way more than two standards depending on the situation. Yeah, why not arm Chechnya, but I think it would be far more productive to arm the Mexican state that is in near open revolt against the corrupt government in Mexico City. Let us export some real democracy for a change.

I dont understand why Bu$hies always equate
saying something against Bu$h as being 'unamerican'.
I love the USA. Perhaps that is why I am so outspoken
about seeing it being turned into West Iran vis-a-vis the
Bu$h regime.
If these Yellow Ribbon, armchair patriots proliferated
a few hunderd years ago we would have never had the
Revolution.

May be my one more last message but if it gets through glad it got to you. I see few familiar handles as I am sure any of us that don't fit the socialist mode have been relegated to time out so the libs, ******s and debutonts can have their way with the sheeple. Keep on keepin on my man. God is good and true men and women will survive the freakazoids!
No one writes like you, KAINTUCK. No one.

Welcome back!


How many wars do you want to get us into Silas?
