    Of course the western media ensure that this news is either quietly forgotten if it is even mentioned at all, while 'Russian massacres', like the UN convoy attack, are given front billing, discussed at press conferences by the 'concerned' US admin and splashed across the western gutter press.

    In all of this mass murder the people responsible for making the bombs in England and the arms manufacturers pay absolutely no price, nor does it seem are governments or law agencies interested in arresting them for their horrendous crimes.

    I'm just wondering what people think should happen to combat the scourge of bomb making and weapons producing which bring already poverty stricken countries such added misery?

    Thank God the Brits and the Yanks have smart bombs - not like those dumb barrel bombs. When the Brits and the Yanks bomb a hospital or a school or a wedding party, they know what they're doing and they do it with precision.

    They certainly killed a lot less civilians than Brit and Yank bombs do.

    You either reject large-scale weapons manufacturing on principle... or you are part of the problem.

    To my mind, weapons manufacturers are the dregs of humanity, whether they be Russian, British or from anywhere else on the face of the planet. Their entire lives are based around conspiracy to murder.

    The Russian, French and British establishments happen to be repeat offenders. They are rogue states and have been inflicting their war-mongering poison on the world for centuries, but it is wrong wherever it originates.

    No exclusions based on nationality or ideology or race or religion.

    No excuses.

    F*ck them all.
    They create employment.

    Not forgetting the same crowd wanting to Brexit meaning arms exports are now a vital industry post EU. Its a sector needed now to make Britain great again.

    You are 'pro-life' so you must by definition condemn all murders. Or is that restricted to a certain time period?

    Once people are born its ok to kill them? You seem rather confused.

    I believe in the death penalty and in war to defend one's nation. I do not believe in exterminating the future generations of our nation.

    You are correct to equivocate the IRA and the British state.

    You believe in mass murder in an assortment of circumstances which you continually alter and wiggle around over.

    Fact is, much of the mass murder you have advocated and celebrated occurred in no war.

    You are an utter fool.

    You are most pro-death poster on the site.
