Okay, yes, I feel the same way. I hear and read about ISIS being funded by CIA and that the US has been selling them weapons and even training them. That, and going back to articles and interviews about the WTC bombing of 93, and the very suspicious events on 9/11 especially the attack and claim that the Plane basically disentegrated, erradicating all passengers and the plane, but left a single passport for clues.

It all adds up to my confusion about the events, what the ties are exactly to ISIS to that world and to the US and the CIA. I think that as seekers of answers, (I mean really, I could say everyone that's looking for truth, but that in itself is reason for ridicule). I'm not screaming Conspiracy. But to be honest, I can't help myself but feel that things have not been all they seem and that there's more to all these events.

For those reasons, I want to tell the people of Paris and the surrounding countries to be wary of help from the US. Even if it's my country, I wouldn't trust them.

By Putin publicly announcing that it would like to help the US against ISIS, it's putting the US and it's military in a spot where if they refuse, it might potentially signify it's really their creation anyways. To be honest, if the US and Russia got together against ISIS, they would be able to erradicate the threat once and for all. I'm very curious how the US will respond to his offer.

Am I being too paranoid? Should I just shut up because I don't know anything? Yes, probably. But honestly, who is going to risk themselves in a public debate or in a presidential hearing to voice their opinions and concerns that are very legitimate, but risks their own freedom and their own image.

Most people that are over 25 already know that we funded ISIS, Al-Qeida and many others. Iran Contra scandal, Cuban exiles, Jundallah, Wahhabi, and ANY major drug cartel that is still operational. We (AND EVERY OTHER MAJOR COUNTRY) do these things to "keep our hands clean." We KNOW it will eventually backfire, but sometimes we need immediate results and we think we can just contain the next problem later. This happens in EVERY MAJOR COUNTRY and has been happening forever. This is world politics. We can't get our hands dirty and bomb who we want, so we arm the "rebels" or other guys and let them duke it out.

If ISIS is the US' toy, wouldn't it make sense to just wipe their hands clean of the whole deal and just turn their backs on them?

That Soviet is making sense? My president can't tell the difference between ISIS and moderates?Oh shit - he thinks there are moderates? Fuck. Looks like I've entered that weird alternate universe Star Trek warned me about.

Speaking of, does anyone remember eating Ghiradelli chocolate? Because I recently noticed that there's now a second r there, Ghirardelli, that was never there as a kid. Maybe it's just me.

YES, MEET HIM HALF WAY, jesus christ. Let Assad go, you're not bringing him down without a huge cold war era conflict and more unstability in the middle east. Crush the terrorists with Putin and move the fuck on.

When they talk about "political solution" I'm pretty sure they mean a mutual face-saving exercise where Assad steps down, one of his cronies takes over, and everybody slaps themselves on the back for effecting meaningful change. This is what's going to happen, it's just a matter of buying off Assad personally.

I still have no idea why we are trying to topple Assad, we heard there were chem weapons used on the people but I don't remember anything conclusive that said it was definitely Assad and not his enemies. Did we officially declare war on Syria? Did Congress vote? Why can I not remember this?

Obama better jump on this and ride it. He's probably not going to, he'll probably say or do something stupid, but man oh man, I hope he does this right alongside someone that... well... knows how to do it right.

All this bollocks started with the illegal attack on Iraq.
