When the Syrian internal protest kicked off I was a bit gung ho wishing we (the international community) would do something, I think I was still
wrapped up in the Arab spring thinking these dictators were overthrown to allow more freedoms when in fact it is the opposite.
I still find it hard to think we let the atrocities in Yugoslavia happen, especially as I holidayed there not a year before it all went horribly wrong
so yeah, at the time I wanted us to help out. I was thinking I used to shout at the news about the 'barrel bombs' and thought Asad should be
overthrown just like America and Britain (and others did).
Then ISIS came along, seems to have taken a lot of heat off Assad and perpetrated atrocities that make me sick and some people on here started saying
America made them to create another bogeyman?? You know what, every time I see a barrel bomb dropped on his opposition I dont feel bad, thats
tomorrows ISIS or AQ in Syria dying.
So if America did create ISIS and are funding them, well unless I am alone (and I might be hence my posting here) they have scored an own goal with
me, because I support Assad, I will now be very vociferous against overthrowing him and I am all for helping him. I support the next Saddam of Iraq
and Gadaffi of Libya and I now support the regime in Iran as its not bothering anyone except Israels imagination.
So in showing me what the Muslim faith is capable of within their own countries, apparently by American puppets (ISIS) I now support what it appeared
we were fighting all along.
