The interface leaves something to be desired... no indication that you have picked all the games.

Edit: Ahh, there it is near the top -- faded. 16 of 16.

where the fuck do these people get that kinda disposable income..
Being single helps, being irresponsible with your money really helps. Odds are many of the people who bought $1,250 ships, really should have put that money into a retirement account. That said, many people spend that much and more on lots of stuff. Hell, I remember buying $125-$200 bowling balls at least one per year back when it had my interest. Golf is good for spending money, never got that bug.

If this was in NFL, you guys would be all over it. Do you even know what a transfer fee is?
I always thought the idea of transfer fess was interesting. It sorta happens in some player trades in US sports, but not regularly and certainly not as part of the process. Higher ticket prices coming for someone...

Is that all of you around here buying GTA5?
Never played any of them, no objection to it, just never drawn to it.

It looks like P2W to me. I hope I am wrong.

That is amusing -- is the "your argument is invalid" from the series or a Starbucks theme or simply a non sequitur?

Well, the UK certainly seems to have at least pressed the pause button.

After thinking about it some more, there may not be a good choice here, but there is definitely a very poor choice. And that would be the US launching a military strike without significant support from our allies and preferably the UN and/or several (many?) members of the Arab League.

Going this alone, is asking for the worst.

Your link isn't news to me and doesn't change anything I've said. My point and stance is there are no good choices.

I know it's difficult, but consider this: assume you became convinced Assad is using chemical weapons. And death tolls start to rise -- 1,000 dead in an attack. Two weeks later another 1,500. Then, 1,500 two weeks after that. At what point does it become necessary to act against him?

You're right. The "rebels" aren't anyone we care to deal with, let alone run Syria. The problem is Assad is approaching, if he isn't already there, the point where we can't deal with him either...

Lives are already being lost that have nothing to do with it. Civilians are dying. While "let them fix their own problems" might seem wise here at the moment, it's not always the right answer -- think WWII.

Granted, we are nowhere near those levels, I'm just saying there is a big gray area, not a clearly defined line. If you think there is, tell me where it's at. How many civilians, minorities, whatever have to die before it's an issue for governments outside Syria? The surrounding countries are already burdened by the refugee populations.

I don't want us to go in. At some point, we may have no effective choice. I don't know if we have or when we will have reached that point.

First, I said if/when. Second, just because he isn't backed into a corner doesn't mean he doesn't feel like he is.

As far as I can tell, from the US point of view, it's a no win situation. No matter how much or how little we get involved in the conflict, we will be criticized by someone. Given that, my stance would be whatever we do, let's not lose any US military lives doing it.

One can ask the same thing about nuclear arsenals....

Do you really believe a dictator that remained in power this long doesn't know how far he can go and how far not? Occams Razor.....
Yes, well "we" (the US) have used our nukes. But that is neither here nor there.

How long did the Ba'athists and Sadaam run Iraq? Since the early 1960s? Sadaam used them. I believe a dictator who has been in power that long has difficulty understanding when he's lost. The concept is not easily understood by him. Would he rather the people loved him? Sure. But he'd rather rule with the Iron Fist and fear than not rule.

I don't think Assad would use chemical weapons casually -- "Oh screw it, just gas them." But if/when he was feeling backed into a corner... he'd do it.

And yeah, the whole Syria thing is a huge wtf. I don't buy for 1 second that Assad used chem weapons. What would he gain from that and what would others gains from that? Seems to me the only ones profiting are the "rebels" and the military industrial complex. And Assad is highly educated, he would NEVER allow chem weapon use.
Sarcasm?

I have no doubt Assad would do it. What would he gain? The same thing anyone gains using those weapons, generating fear in his enemies. Now, did he do it? I don't know. But it wouldn't surprise or shock me. Did you think he was collecting chemical weapons in order to not use them?
