Proxy war against China and Russia? Just because a sign is well written and presented? Oh, and I bet those protestors are under cover Mossad agents,
and the whole conflict is a false-flag? Foreign powers ought to stay out of the mess in Syria, and I said the same thing during the Libya uprising. It
is none of our business. It is the business of the Syrians.
Since Russia and China was brought up? Russia is notorious for playing both sides of a conflict, and it makes perfect sense in their particular
predicament. They risk losing a base, and a steadfast ally. Show some support for the rebels in the event they win, and show some support for Assad in
the event he wins. If they play their cards right politically? They lose nothing, and gain everything. The Russian's have to hope that the rebels or
the Assad loyalists miss the forked tongue while the pandering is going on. They see that, and it is curtains for Russia's business with Syria. They
talk a lot about momentous military might to their supposed opposition. However, when it is time to show some fortitude by sending troops and military
equipment to a certain area? Russia does a complete about face, and starts throwing around the concept of nukes being launched to the four winds.
As for China, and their role in all of this? All I see them doing is huffing and puffing at the UN, and at the very least; tossing in a veto in
conjunction with the Russians. Just like their approach with regard to Libya. China is just fuming about the US repositioning its military forces to
the Pacific region, and is trying to buddy-up to Russia as an attempt to keep the US off of their doorstep. The thing about Russia is that they look
out for Russia first and foremost. Their history speaks loudly of that simple premise. If Russia does not see a special interest in backing China when
their relationship with the US gets heated? Russia will back off.
Back to the topic. Let the rebels and the Assad regime duke it out amongst themselves. Let the factions make signs about anything they want. Write in
English, Arabic, Russian, or Chinese. I don't care. It is none of our business. That goes for the West, Russia, or China. Lets not stir up the Middle
East anymore than it already is. As of now, the situation in Syria seems to be localized, and lets try to keep it that way. If this thing escalates or
spills over into neighboring countries? Look for gas prices to go up even more than they already are, and the very possibility of a regional if not
international conflict. Stay the heck out of Syria!
