Hezbollah says that if the US attacks Syria it will be an act of terrorism.

......Hezbollah issued its first official statement since the effort began to strike al-Assad's forces in the wake of an August 21 chemical weapons attack outside Damascus that, the United States estimates, killed more than 1,400 people, many of them children.

The group, which is popular in parts of the Arab world yet labeled a terrorist organization by the United States, claimed that any military action against Syria's government is "a form of direct and organized terrorism."


Reminds me of when the Iranian Embassy in London was briefly occupied in 1980 and the president of Iran protested, calling it a violation of international law.

terrorism.

And judging by James and Toni's posts on another thread, they agree with the terrorists, at least in so far as Obama shouldn't do anything and is simultaneously a terrible and indecisive leader for not doing anything and a crafty b*st*rd for waiting for Congress to tell him he can't. One cannot help but admire the brilliance of their position.

If people weren't being slaughtered indiscriminately I'd laugh. The horror is that there is no way to intervene without opening the US up to more terrorism, which may be being planned anyway, just because the US is the US and a segment of Islamic thought wants to expunge the influence of the West from all Islamic societies. It's rather like somebody being convinced that only their extreme position is proper and correct.

Since some estimate that the rebels have been infiltrated by Al Qaeda and other extremist up to around 50% of their numbers, that means no matter which side you're on, you're with the terrorists. It's a win-win. Wink

you obviously don't know what you are talking about. Go ahead and endorse Al Qaeda, the cruelty of the rebels, the anti-Christian attacks, if you wish though.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
