I do understand. We all understand. All countries and all sides have arguments and 'facts' on th ...

Try to understand?

I am a mother and a grandmother.  I can only think of the child.

Are you trying to tell me that in a certain circumstances, that it is 'okay' to use a four year old child in war?

Are you saying that?

I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...

Sacrifice....yes....
To be able to sacrifice  his her own child..........they expect to go to heaven after that.....


What kind of a 'god' would let parents like that into 'heaven'?

Not a god I would follow.  Surely I would need to follow a god that at least had some morals.

A parent who puts their child in danger is NOT a good parent and should rot in 'hell' if there was one.

Not a god I would follow.  Sure ...

Like I say....Americans big enough, strong enough to go to war with bags of chocolates.


Nothing in your experience, nothing you can experience , nothing you can say is of any relevance to the fighters in Syria.

The ultimate sacrifice is when a father, a mother sacrifice his 4 years old child.  

Felix....... ...

I hope you don't have any children and never do if this is your attitude.

On a side note, I'll never forget when I first heard of the story of Abraham sacrificing his son to show his faith in god.  I was a child in church.  I heard the story and was horrified.  I looked around at the church members and none of them seemed horrified by the story.

That was the starting point of why I don't follow the religion today.  That and some other stuff taught in sunday school.

Could not follow a god like that.  I don't care if that means I will die, go to hell, or whatever.  Cannot follow an immoral god that would demand a child sacrifice to show faith.

Who are the under dogs.......?


Stupid question.



The under dogs are of course the revolutionaries trying to kill Assad.
