When Are NATO Going Into Syria

My views have changed over this 4 year thread. In 2011 there wasn't ISIS in control. Now, leaving them.to their own devices means another failed state being used as a base to attack the West. That justifies military action as self defence. We must also be mindful of the lessons of the 1930s.

No because we are not part of NATO. It's not our war but it is that of countries that have been attacked.

Would you send him in to kill the terrorists or terrorise them?

This animated online comic is really worth reading, for some background on the Syrian conflict and how it is maybe one of the first major conflicts sparked by climate change.




As Britain stands on the brink of dropping bombs on the people of Syria, world "leaders" gather in Paris to talk the talk on climate change. These two things are linked, with one of the sparks that ignited the war in Syria being a devastating drought linked to climate change.

World leaders in 1940 were on the brink of dropping bombs on Germany. Was that wrong too? Sometimes there is no other option.

Whether or not the bombing of civilian populations in WWII was justified is probably arguable, but it has fuck all to do with what's happening today.

Sorry, but that's an absolutely ridiculous thing to say and I don't even know what your point is or who you were directing that frankly ridiculous question at.


Let's say for the sake of argument bombing Germany was the right thing to do.

So that somehow justifies bombing anything some world leaders may want bombed? Only in your head!!

Say the alternative is diplomacy. But you can't negotiate with IS after what they've done. Google the Yazidi mass graves discovered in recent days in Sinjar.

I think NATO should bomb IS to oblivion so that moderates like the Kurds can fill the void. Then there can be diplomacy and if Assad refuses to play ball, he should be bombed too. After all the Dayton peace deal in Bosnia only happened because of NATO bombing the Bosnian Serbs and threatening to bomb the Croats if they didn't come to the table.

Obviously ISIS should be destroyed, I think we both agree on that.

But I seriously doubt that's what the US have been doing so far. Russia seems (seems!) to have been more successful so far, but they're no heroes or angels.

Both the U.S. and Russia are not fighting against terror, they're fighting for what they have to gain if they occupy and control Syria.

This is no different than other proxy wars both countries have fought in the past in Africa.

They did drop bombs on Germany, what's your point? You can't compare Hitler and his army frog marching all over Europe to IS taking over a small amount of territory. Territory which they are all ready losing.

Bombing "IS" into oblivion will most likely kill more innocent civilians and then send hoards of young men and women into the arms of IS and similar groups. It would be akin to Bloody Sunday when 1,000s of young Irish catholics ended up joining a military movement that prior to the shootings in Derry was gradually turning more political.

Not sure if that's a serious question or not but I'm gonna assume it is.

Yes, they do have an army and they're already sending 1,200 men and women to the area. But only as advisors and "support troops", allegedly.

Exactly! It's just throwing fuel into the fire!
