Syria :(

Is it possible to be a pacifist and yet be in favour of becoming involved?

Is it possible to be in favour of becoming involved and remain a pacifist?

Are these questions essentially the same?

Hi Charlou.

It almost sounds like you agree with the bombing?

I'm in favour of finding a way to defend, protect, and empower groups along humanitarian principles. Is the use of force, even aggressive/violent force, to address force, completely outside the scope of pacifist or humanitarian ideals?

I don't know.
Sorry I have no answers except I am in Amnesty International campaigning for humans rights issues as atrocious as Syria, all be it not as brutal or quite as many people involved.

Is Syria the current fake 'Space Race'?

Fools, Russia and the USA are not, and have never been in opposition.

Space is not real, nor was the Cold War, nor is this nonsense.

Liquid is more fluid than are solids, and so the ocean rises higher than earth as it's affected by the sun's gravity, thus blocking Eire's view of Greenland, Newfoundland, and North Carolina.
