    When do we start investigating the G7 for coordinating with Russia?

    Good. Why in the hell should Russia get sanctioned for Syria? Does the US get sanctioned every time Israel slaughters people? Proxy sanctions are as nonsensical as proxy wars, and frankly only contribute to them.

    Glad to hear that good old Regime Change is officially the position of the G7 nations, we almost forgot in the last few years what it's like to utterly shatter the lives of millions by destabilizing their country and region further. :rolleyes:

    It's hard to comments on the sanctions as I haven't seen what the British proposal entailed.

    However, to your point that this is a proxy war ... if Russia forces weren't in Syria and actively engaged in the conflict, then I'd have an easier time agreeing with the proxy part of it.

    Why is only our army allowed to rampage around the world?

    Russia is clearly there to prevent Syria from being the spark that results in the entire region from spiraling out of control. It's not because Assad is Putin's best friend (if you guys remember not even a decade ago the likes of Sting were partying personally with Assad, he was a good little client like Sadam and Gaddafi were), it's because Russia doesn't need anymore terrorist organizations coming to their lands (which are at far higher risk than the USA). Stability, in this case via a strongman (a long, long, looooooong used tactic by the USA), is viewed as better than letting warlords fight over the country for the next two decades (minimum). That, and obviously the resource interests which will fall apart if the state falls.
