If XY and YZ, then XZ. If moderate rebels are supported by US, and they joined ISIS, and if ISIS is responsible for this incident, guess who has blood in its hands? The math is so simple.

Democracy is about who counts the votes, not who votes. Reminds me of George Bush's first election where no supreme court judges could be found. And when the Federal Reserve bank act was passed with only 3 congressmen in session, all bought by the bankers.

Crazy Joe and Burning Bush, you guys are doing better in informing the public than these trash reports.
It could not be more biased and partial: "conservative Sunni-ruled kingdom and the revolutionary Shiite theocracy". Why not refer to Saudi Arabia as the brutal and extremist theocracy? It is trying to avoid depicting Saudia Arabia as the savage country it really is.

In the last days, man will rule man to his own detriment.
All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.

@MarkG, To begin with, the whole mess was created by the West. So nothing good will come out of it no matter what. If they killed so many people who were working at the Pentagon and at the Towers, they care less about anybody else no matter where they come from. Listen to Maj General Albert Stublebine and you will understand what I mean. His set of strong beliefs were shaken to the point he says: "I no longer know who the enemy is".

@Chubbychub, you are right. They are coming to stir the pot, without any entry visa and violating Syria's airspace and sovereignty.
@Burning Bush, you are also right. Notice that Jordan is in the middle of Iraq and Syria, yet, there is no report of any USIS, (now is USIS not ISIS), in there. Even reports of beheadings can be another Hollywood motion picture of CIA productions, just like 9/11 was.
@american_bengoshi, I was so gung-ho after serving in the Marines and the Air Force and even after I retired, I believed all the lies. But I opened my eyes and now understand all their manipulations. First, Thomas Jefferson warned us about the media being a source of lies. Second, Maj. Gen Smedley D Butler told us in his speech, War is a Racket, that all these wars all for the benefit of Wall Street Bankers. Third, Maj. Gen Albert Stublebine was the Army chief of intelligence and he himself states that what hit the towers and Pentagon was not an airplane,(of course, airplanes do not evaporate). Lt Gen Boykin warns us of a forced economy collapse, (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYXsMF3PWMk). Fourth, General Wesley Clark also mentions in his You-Tube documental that all these invasions were already planned back in the 1990s. And fifth, Bill Still in his documental The Money Masters, describes how all these wars are created by the World Bankers, dating back to the American Revolution, and even financed the Russian Revolution. They play capitalist and communist at the same time, as long as they have control. These should allow you to have some understanding. But if "patriotism" has disabled your thinking abilities, then I do not know what can open your eyes. Good luck.

Although there are no immediate victims, there are a lot of potential victims as a result of psychological stimuli caused from the interaction with these abominations. Consider, just depicting a caricature of the so called "prophet" Muhammad caused a lot of mental distress to many of its followers that it turned them into murder, arson and other crimes. I suppose these child depictions will also invite a change in behavior in those who consume these products. My two cents worth.

In the Bible, God claims Jerusalem as his holy city. I am not sure if the Kuram claims the same thing. If it does, it is obvious of its purpose. Since I do not consider Islam to be a religion of a loving god, my take is that Jerusalem belongs to Israel. They were removed 2,000 years ago from their own land by those who up to these days are the ones behind a lot of the tumult in the World.

Fine the embassy for their poor judgement and planning. Next time it should all be absentee ballots. And yes, let this be a lesson learned of what is to come if you keep allowing more people from certain countries who do not know how to behave like civilized people.

My understand that these "peaceful"protestors were instigators financed by the CIA, just like the ones in Ukraine. You get some of these in Washington to advocate for the downfall of the capitalist system and they will not last too long. According to the Global Research, more police were killed than the protestors, by roof-top snipers. News from mainstream media will side with those behind the destabilization movement.

You got that right Burning Bush. The ones that really needs change are Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, and even Turkey, that recently is moving from secularism to islamization.
The one thing that they have been doing is destroying established political establishment and replacing them with terrorists, while at the same time, continuing to bring the US into more borrowing from the Federal Reserve Bank, (a private for profit bank), so they can finance their campaigns. They spend billions in weapons so the ones holding the stakes can get richer and richer. It is a big racket like Marine Major General Smedley D Butler said in his speech War is a racket.

As long as central bankers are in charge of countries' coffers, there will be no way out of their conundrum.
Governments will have to continue borrowing money, (that is, paper created from thin air), from the bankers at interest. To pay that interest, they have to keep taxing everything they find in their sights. In the 1800s, it was unconstitutional to collect federal taxes. After all, that was one of the reasons for the American revolution. But when in 1913 the bankers caught Congress in a vulnerable situation, (only 3 congressmen in session with power to approve laws), they finally forced themselves into the US by bribing those 3 congressmen to pass the into law the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank. What came next was the imposition of Federal taxes. And after that, came World War I, a master piece of the bankers, because Congress now had to borrow massive amounts of money from the FRB to finance the war. If you do not believe me, find out for yourself from an independent source, Bill Still, the Money Masters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51CvlMEtf1A

Japan has option, terminate the agreement and kindly request US Forces to leave. Have you ever bought one of those whole life insurance and invested so much money that you think it is better to continue paying the premium to recover the investment? But in reality it is wiser to just stop it and switch to term insurance. Such is Japan's predicament.
It will take a strong leader to realize that they have created artificial defense needs so the addiction to defense and "protection" will continue. It is a good deal for the US because it forces Japan to purchase lots of weapons systems. At the same time, although the US has to pay the salaries for its own military and civilians stationed in Japan, it does not have to pay for construction and maintenance of of most facilities. So, this is a free ride.
Japan, on the other hand, could just use the funds it spends supporting US forces on its own military personnel, facilities and equipment.
It does not have to kick the US in bad terms. It could just allow certain visiting SOFA status for joint exercises and contingencies, military overflight permission, port calls and landing rights.
That is when Japan can say that it is a sovereign nation again.
