re: #2 Destro

And who is asking Russia to stop arming the current regime?

In fact, why are you pointing the finger at the rebels? Because not all of them are pro-democracy, as opposed to the faux-elected status quo? Because the rebels are willing to collective punish and bombard entire neighborhoods to get at... Oh, wait! That was Assad's loyal forces who did that!

Its a complicated, f***ed up situation. Yet, what to springs to your mind is "this is america's fault"? Really?

The USA has asked Russia to not arm the regime and to all accounts that has happened.

And the Syrian rebels sound worse than the Assad regime they seek to replace.

Rebels with an anti-Semitic cause

What began as a limited but genuine people's uprising against a kleptocratic dictatorship has now been overtaken by a Saudi-backed project to destabilize Syria.

In the province of Homs alone, rebel fighters have driven some 80,000 Christians out of their homes. The opposition fighters have even carried out beheadings, a phenomenon unknown to Syrians. Young Shi'ite and Christian women, who mix freely with men in Damascus, told me they had to cover their faces and assume fake Sunni identities when traveling through rebel-held areas.

Every time the USA backs rebels with the help of Saudi Arabia the same fucked up shit happens and we keep on doing it expecting different results. A sure sign of insanity.
