Alexei Mankovski Posted 7 months ago Does the Russian president Vladimir Putin deserve the Nobel Peace Prize? (Reply to Robert Winner) Robert, you seem to be forgetting that the casualties you are referring to are the result of an armed conflict started by armed terorrists ("rebels"), and that casualties are property of any armed conflict. A huge number of people died during WWII - are you going to go and blame the Soviet government for all casualties in a war started by Nazi Germany? Claims that the Syrian government used chemical weapons and that it "massacres its own population" have remaind only claims, with no basis nor logic behind them (read my replies to Nadav Tropp). Also, can you please elaborate on this though - what would have happened and would be happening in Syria if the Russian government did not sell weapons to the Syrian government?
