Their equipment is old and obsolete. Their military is very corrupt. It has terrible leadership. Their government is also very corrupt. They have terrible leaders...

An all out religious war in Syria is inevitable.

There is no way forward to progress in this already moving furious war between pretty much every major and Syria. The only way forward is war although technically some say that it is already happening. A religious war is a war primarily waged by religious partisans to propagate or defend their faith. In terms of what is going on at the moment, this is already happening....

Dog Fighting

Annacat
In_Human_Form

Dog fighting is a disgusting act where people throw dogs, usually pit bulls and other muscular dogs, into a pit where they are forced to fight to death or near death. The dogs are abused, starved and even killed. Also other crimes are involved in dog fighting like, drugs, illegal gambling, alcohol and even murder. Some children are even exposed to this!! This is a torturous "sport" and I don't see how anyone could do this to a living creature....

Wylted
tyu

The words liberal and conservative can mean a lot of things, so to keep things simple I'll define the terms. The terms are negotiable before accepting, but not afterwords. Since traditionally liberals are pro government and want more of it Wilde fine them as "pro establishment" and the conservatives being against government would be called "anti establishment". Definitions Liberal-Pro-establishment Conservative- Anti-establishment. ------------------ This is a split BOP debate. Co...
