WW3: Because Killing Civilians Is Only Okay When Obama Does It

WW3: Because Killing Civilians Is Only Okay When Obama Does It

With what could be the prelude to World War 3, Obama has effectively announced confirmation of his plans to move foreward with military action in Syria after the recent alleged chemical weapons attack that left thousands of innocent civilians dead. The decision prompted the representatives from both China and Russia to walk out on the UN meeting earlier today.

Someone somewhere seems to have reached the conclusion that it was, in fact, al-Assad's government that launched the attack on the people of Damascus rather than desperate measures taken by the rebels (the FSA have pulled a series of lesser shots in the past), knowing that Obama stated that the "red line" would be when chemical weapons were used, in order to prompt international intervention starting with an expected Kosovo-like airstrike campaign. Because why not needlessly kill thousands of your civilians by way of an internationally denounced method when you're already winning your war? Sounds like a great idea! Not a blatantly stupid move at all.

We all remember what happened the last time the POTUS decided to go ahead with military intervention based on a hunch back in 2003.

It's ironic that Obama & co. would be so eager to launch another military invasion into the Middle East considering he's the one who finally brought the ridiculous move into Iraq by the Bush administration to a long-awaited close, but here we are. Yet again.

It's no question that something needs to be done about obscene death and destruction inflicted by both the SAA and FSA, but when Britain is seeking authorization from the UN to use military force before the investigation of the incident is even finished, and when your major international allies are advising against it, and when 70% of your population is opposed to the idea -multiply that by the amount of love trigger-happy Obama has for killing civilians with drone strikes - you come out looking pretty bewildered at this sudden decision 27 months and 100,000 deaths into it.

Will this be a repeat of the Iraq War, or are we really in for another World War like the media expectedly keeps hinting at?

    Ok so I’m just going to go ahead and say it. This video is EVERYTHING. The internet has been in a recent state of uproarious laughter over the video that surfaced on Cut Video’s Youtube account the other day. Three innocent and completely willing grandmothers decided to be the guinea pigs of a small social experiment and got high for the first time (was I the only one who suspected Deirdre has totally been down with the ganja before?) in their many decades lived on god’s green Earth....

    Smallpools, Magic Man, and Panama Wedding. Now that's a lineup ladies and gentlemen! The three acts took the stage at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, and proved that indie pop is sure to get you dancing. Though the venue didn’t sell out, I’m sure it would have if The 1975 wasn’t playing a sold out show that same night only a block away. But who cares because it was such a fun night and I’m still recovering from all the dancing… Panama Wedding kicked off the night with a lot of energy. Though...

    “Left or right?” This age old question that was commonly used to ask for directions is now an inquiry on whether the digitally rendered image of some random chick on your screen is hot enough for you to be vaguely interested. What the hell am I talking about? Log off your Tinder session and stop pretending you don’t know what Tinder is. Thank you; let’s proceed. It used to be that there were rules about these things. Fathers were asked permission, curfews were given, chaperons...

    Our favourite instant-messaging app has launched a brand new feature this past Monday called Snapcash in collaboration with another company called Square.

This feature is currently available for US citizens who are over 18 years old, and people are already raving about the simplistic way of using this feature.  Snapchat...
