I'm scum for thinking assad might have done something bad or stupid, despite the fact that I am entirely against intervention. I'm scum for not wholeheartedly supporting and crowing about the victories of the syrian army. I get attacked for even suggesting that hinging your arguments on some collusion between multiple governments and now the UN to frame assad might not be the best argument.
Well, I haven't called you scum and I haven't called you an idiot, or a liar, etc. So try to keep in mind that if someone else does something, it doesn't mean everyone else does the same thing.
I don't think Assad is an angel and I don't think anyone else here does either (but knowing @skinster I'm sure she's going to say "Assad is an angel" just because now
). A lot of people here are highly critical of neoliberalism and neoliberals, but you shouldn't take it so personally. If you see rule violations, you should report them.
What would good be if evil hadn't existed,
and what would the earth look like
if all the shadows disappeared?
