What is happening in Syria is blatant war crimes and those UN clowns only care about being "politically correct". If they are so powerless to help, then they should have no gripes when a father straps on explosives to seek revenge against the killers of his 3 year old son. But nooooo! They will label him "a terrorist". So I label the United Nations security council delegates "Cowards". How can they sit there and just observe the daily slaughter? Pope John Paul said, and now I agree... "The worst sin is often indifference."

Um, shouldn't it be spelled "wimps?" Or is that a wimpy question?

Regards,
John

I assumed it was sort of a combo-word

whiners + wimps = whimps (or whimpers:-))

Oh, a few people have lingering doubts that the matter's closed. Laughing Rolling Eyes


Quote:
Today, Germany has been called upon to provide significant financial support and to “bail out” many European Union Nations, such as Greece, Spain, and Italy without regard for an accounting for the wrongs committed against it and its people in the years 1945-1949.

We therefore call for the return of the historic Provinces of Pomerania, Silesia, East Prussia and the Sudetenland to Germany, and thus a return of German/Polish, German/Czech Republic and Polish/Ukrainian/Russian borders to those of 1938/39, in an orderly, but expedited manner, acknowledging that the taking of these historic lands and the trauma done to Ethnic Germans as a result was Ethnic Cleansing and an illegal action by the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain. The legal framework remains available for this action via the finalization of a final Peace Treaty with Germany and “Allies” and their successors since no Peace Treaty has ever been finalized or executed, thus German border justice remains an “open issue”.

Fringe elements. Outside the organised groups of the "Vertriebene" in the West there is little mainstream intrerest in this.

The FRG is still trying to digest the GDR !

Tsk tsk. The freedom-loving peoples of the Glorious Soviet Union would never agree to such claims.

Just as well we have a United Nations to arbitrate in said matters, as ineffectual as it may appear at times.
