I have a few questions.
Should Russia have bombed the United States after Waco? Ruby Ridge? Perhaps China should have gotten involved in surgical strikes on abortion clinics back in the late 1970s and early 80s?
Oh, you say with a superior smirk, China is also engaged in abortion so that would be hypocritical. The US is stopping Assad from doing horrible things to his people, like gassing them.
Thanks for proving my point. I mean, the US government has never gassed its own people, right?
I have way more proof of the US government doing things to the American people than I do on Assad doing things to Syrians–and quite frankly, so do you. And last I checked, Syria wasn’t sending troops over here to stop the US government. Why? Because sending troops/weapons/death/destruction over to another country is an act of war.
I keep hearing things like the following:
- We need to just trust the President.
Why? Why do we need to trust anyone? In fact, the Founders specifically told us NOT to trust those who do these things, NOT to trust those who even APPROACH our liberties. So far, Trump has already shown he is quite willing to not only approach them, but bargain with them. You can claim all day long that it’s just “negotiation tactics,” but let me point something out. Our rights should never be used as a negotiation tactic. Not ever.
- We’ll never know the whole story because of the corrupt media.
That’s probably true. So why in God’s green earth are you willing to sacrifice your children for a situation that you admit you know jack squat about? Oh, did you just mean to send other people’s children? That’s what I thought.
- We have to stop Assad.
From what? Why? and why US? If you’re going to go hogwild in Syria, then you better line up for North Korea, China, and a bunch of other tinpot dictators too. I mean, let’s just free everyone in the whole world!
- Only traitors don’t support the military.
Don’t even give me that crap. I was in the military. I don’t have to jump up and down in some kind of patriotic flop dance for every single thing the military does no matter how wrong, and you doing so doesn’t make you SuperPatriot(tm). It makes you a sheep.
- Big things are coming! Have faith!
Oh, believe me. I absolutely have faith that “big things” are coming.
Folks, you need to constantly evaluate your belief system. Is it factual? Does the evidence support it? (And I don’t mean your latest Q crap either.) if not, what DOES the evidence support? Set emotions aside. Do the mental work necessary to plot out the potentials and figure out what the logical progression is here.
When an honest but ignorant man is presented with truth, he either ceases to be ignorant, or he ceases to be honest.
