Great work again
Copying and pasting from here.
'The Syrian opposition forces are nibbling, if not slaughtering their way, into view with their recent killings in Damascus. Bashar al-Assad’s
inner circle has received a series of lethal blows in the National Security Building
As we watched the efficient attack on Assads National Sec council on Wednesday, Assad found himself one minister of defence and brother-in-law short.
Interventions have been taking place in the 17 month old conflict since its inception, and the only issue now is for those who have picked their horse
– in this case, the unpredictable, unknown creature called the Syrian opposition – to bide their time.'
Yes you seem to miss out the next paragraph from the article. Why is that?
'There is little doubt that the killings being inflicted by the Assad regime are reprehensible and need to cease, but that is ultimately a matter that
Syria will have to contend with. When civilians die at the hands of government forces, quivers of indignation and rage are felt outside the country
by anti-Assad regimes who express a partisan interest in the conflict while simulating disinterestedness. But the Syrian opposition has also
relinquished its credentials as a body of peace makers. Indeed, there is much to suggest that those credentials were shed some time ago, bloodied by
the desire to take up arms against a regime that dishes out good doses of it. The Free Syrian Army, and its allies, are becoming more cunning with
their targeting – and at the same time ‘conventional’ with their Muslim fighters in embracing the suicide bomb. Nor should assistance from
foreign sources in this regard be ruled out.'
How many threads on Syria do you need by the way?
