Up for Debate: U.S. military option in Syria

Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at 12:26am

The Pentagon has reportedly detailed U.S. options for intervening in the Syrian civil war. To what extent should the U.S. get involved beyond its current role of supplying weapons to rebels? Is further involvement warranted or should the U.S. avoid it as much as possible?

Thanks, budlight.

I had read about that mixture Trayvon was making but I couldn't remember the "over the counter" drug.

Which makes me wonder: At 17 years old, when and where did he learn about that mix?

Since he was so deep into the problem, could he possibly have learned it from Barry and Barry wanted to keep that issue a secret?

Hey NCP, how about you post a different story so normal people won't have to wade through the ignorant posts of two walking advertisements for abortion? Thanks.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 6:38

gdiafante - I'll second that!

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/24/13 at 6:57

Retro abortion would be a good option for those two.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 6:58

NCP could win in a contest for allowing trolls to post LIES on their board & remain there for days.

Very nasty comment B2. I wonder why your mother didn't believe in abortion? And you, don't you have a kid? It's a shame you didn't abort your kid. Why would any kid want a mother who wants other children aborted? You are so sad.

So sad. So sad. You must have really been mistreated to be so sour.

bud - I thought it was a good idea! LIARS are good for nothing or nobody, kinda like the scum of the Earth.

By: gdiafante on 7/24/13 at 7:55

Ignore douchetit. Her and yogi don't deserve reponses.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 8:01

My bad! :-)

Your grammar is really questionable. "Her" and yogi? Duh! You must have gone to private school or gotten home schooled. Public school would teach "she and yogi".

OK, no time for any more of this fun. Got to clock into the job.

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 8:17

Good business thought, y'all. You feel like telling NCP they should post a new subject rather than keep the present one in place.

May I remind you this site belongs to NCP and it is their right to offer whatever subject they want to offer whether you like it or not.

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 8:20

Then I imagine you must feel great that NCP is allowing all of your lies to be posted, bfra.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 8:20

Some are lucky to be called "her" or "she", instead of what they really are.

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 8:24


What makes you think budlight and I should be ignored by NCP but you and your "buddies" should be highly accepted?

And y'all feel so superior with your obvious ignorance? WOW!

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 8:27

I agree, bfra. What are you; something out in the hog wallow?

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 8:36

So you want a good subject for today, gdiafante? Check out:


Which one do you like best?

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 8:39

The City Paper will cease operations next month after 13 years.
Hate to see the City Paper go but, the bright side, the trolls will have to find another source to post their LIES. In the meanwhile, they should spend some time thinking up their own responses instead of copying the intelligent posters. Oh wait, there has to be a brain to think!

By: gdiafante on 7/24/13 at 8:41

It was idiot bait, douchetit, and you bit.

By: BenDover on 7/24/13 at 8:47

Hate to see the CP go. I'm leaving for an over-seas trip on Friday and won't be back for two weeks -- after the paper is shut down.

If you guys light somewhere else and want to continue the discussion let me know. I'll check Loner's blog when I get back from my trip...

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 8:51

I hope you have a safe trip, BenDover. Have fun while you're "over yonder".

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 8:54

I hope you have a good safe trip and enjoy yourself "over yonder", BenDover.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 8:59

9:51AM comment & 9:54AM comment - Perfect examples of stupidity! :-)

By: gdiafante on 7/24/13 at 9:06

More like senility, bfra.

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 9:07

Sorry, I'm just trying to copy you by making mistakes, bfra.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 9:07


By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 9:09

gdiafante - The LOL was for senility. The old fool doesn't catch on to anything.

George Friedman, author of The Next 100 Years tackles the questions from an historical balance-of-power perspective. This is not a politically biased work and anyone serious about understanding why we do what we do on the world stage would find this very interesting.

The website for current events is: http://www.stratfor.com/

Thanks for the link, Ben. I had heard about and I do see where this could and most likely will happen.

By: Jughead on 7/24/13 at 9:49

NCP closing down, what are you dirtbag liberals going to do all day now? Go get more scri meds on TennCare?

By: gdiafante on 7/24/13 at 9:52

The question is, what is your mother/sister (same person) going to do with you, Jug? Never mind. I don't want to know.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/24/13 at 10:09

I am going to miss most on this site. I am glade that I have made contact with a few here and I hope that we will still stay in touch on line or in person.

By: MamaG on 7/24/13 at 10:09

I guess that explains why they continued to let you post your vile words on here jugtard. Good riddance to you, you filthy piece of shit.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/24/13 at 10:11

LOL gdia.

I still think that the flea and yogi come fron (sic) the same gentic (sic) pool.

By: MamaG on 7/24/13 at 10:12

Capt, I agree and am glad for the friends I have made on here and hope and plan to keep in touch with those of you that I have met.

What is Loner going to do? I hope he gets back before 8/9! We will have to find a new site to play on, I guess.

I wish Slacker would come back so we could say goodbye to him as well.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/24/13 at 10:13

The flea will now have to fine some other place to plague.

By: MamaG on 7/24/13 at 10:15

He plagues his mama's crotch every night!

By: MamaG on 7/24/13 at 10:15

And house of pain...

By: Captain Nemo on 7/24/13 at 10:18

I called Loner and left him a message, MamaG. Loner has many sites that he goes too, so he will be fine.

It is people like yogi and the flea that will have a hard time of it. I doubt that there are many site that will put up with the likes of them.

By: MamaG on 7/24/13 at 10:21

LOL, Capt. You're probably right, there!
I know Loner will be fine, but want to be able to say so long to all my faves. Loner and I have been posting here for about 10 years now. I know some others of you have as well.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/24/13 at 10:22


I just told him.

By: Jughead on 7/24/13 at 10:25

You libtards are pathetic and useless pieces of basura. I wish all of you a premature and painful death, hopefully by fire ants removing your small testicles.

I hope they do the same to you guy libtards, too.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/24/13 at 10:27

Poor little flea.

By: Captain Nemo on 7/24/13 at 10:28

I suppose that the flea will have to hate itself now, without CP.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 10:32

Nemo & MamaG - The flea is a foul mouthed piece of rotting human flesh!

By: MamaG on 7/24/13 at 10:34

Yes, rotting flesh of some kind. Human? Not so sure. I've never met a human that vile, I don't think. Poor little messed up basTARD.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 10:39

MamaG - I had second thoughts about the Human part also. More like a dead skunk in roadkill. LOL

Lighter side, daughter just returned from a trip out West and they ate at the Roadkill Cafe on Route 66. Said it was delicious food but very expensive.

By: yogiman on 7/24/13 at 10:39

Amazing, MamaG, Jughead should not use any "dirty" language but it seems to be okay for you. I guess for you and your friends it's supposed to be OK.

Apparently you and your friends felt like the NCP was for you few only and no one else was supposed to be "on board" if they didn't agree with you.

You and 'yours have made so many detrimental remarks to, and about, me. Go back from the beginning and you will find who always threw the first punch.

Comparing this situation to the Trayvon/Zimmerman case it was okay for you to throw the first punch but I, and others whom you didn't agree with, were supposed to just sit there at let you swing as your little hearts desired.

Sorry, ma'am, I always swing back.

By: bfra on 7/24/13 at 10:46

Brainless blob you admitted you have to squint to see so what are you swinging at, your own nose? Come on now, tell another LIE, that is all you are fit for.

By: house_of_pain on 7/24/13 at 10:48

Howdy. Heard y'all were closing up shop around here. Was it Ben Dover's fault?

By: brrrrk on 7/24/13 at 10:48

My biggest regret concerning the closing of the CP is that I won't be around to watch the likes of yogi, juggy, bud, and Ben wallow in their own contempt while the world moves ahead without them. Like the great white shark, we must decide to either move forward or die.... those who I mentioned above have chosen the latter.

By: MamaG on 7/24/13 at 10:50

Yogi, let me be clear that I did not "throw the first punch." Jughead has been nasty to everyone on this board. I felt quite justified in saying he was a piece of shit because I think that's what he is. He has said much worse to me than that. YOU go back and read the posts if you don't believe it. You think it's okay for him to talk about sexual acts toward me??? What if it was your daughter he said those things to???

The NCP is for anyone with an opinion, clearly. If "me and my friends" thought it is just for us, we would have gotten rid of you long ago. Broken record, broken record, broken record.

The only bright spot in their closing is that we won't have to listen to your daily demented rant about the President's birth place. I have always tried to be respectful and kind to you. (And you can go back and read those posts too if you don't believe me) But I can see you only see one side of things and will never, ever, for any reason whatsoever, see another point of view that deviates from yours. Hope you enjoy the rest of your short life, yogiman. You are wasting away fretting over things you cannot change. I just feel sorry for you old man.
