You are completely brainwashed, and I fear a lost cause. Such a shame, especially from someone on a website designed to deny ignorance. It's all a huge game of power and you have totally fallen for it.

Assad isn't the bad guy here, the people seeking to depose him and impose fanatical islamic extremism on the population are.


I don't think anyone plans for Islamic extremists to have WMD's either.


Exactly, which is why it is time for Russia and China to step in to assist the Syrian government in its fight against the terrorists.



Before labeling them terrorists...can you pls tell me what Hamas and Hezbollah are?Freedom fighters?

If they are terrorists, than Israel have EVERY right to bomb Gaza and Lebanon and kill, dunno, 100 per day.
If they are NOT terrorists...that Assad is the bad guy, and he needs to be, preferabily, hanged.

So, what FSA are : terrorists or freedom-fighters
?

It is not as simple as the rebels are either extremists or not. There are Salfist extremist groups in the rebellion who have the better weaponry and general equipment due to the Saudi & Qatari funding. There are also standard Syrians involved in the insurgency, mostly Sunnis.

Unfortunately as this conflict continues I think it will be the Salafists who take the lead role in toppling Assad and his regime, which COULD lead to even more violence, in revenge and sectarian killings.

The FSA are terrorists. Your stupid comparison with Hamas/Hesbollah is so braindead and moronic I'm ignoring it. This discussion is about the FSA terrorists and the enevitable defeat they will suffer at the hands of Assad.

Here are some excerpts from an interview with FSA members.


Al-Sheikh, and many of his men, admit that their ultimate goal is the establishment of an Islamic state. But they are careful to add that they intend for such a government to be inclusive of other minorities. “Islam teaches us to take our rights and give others their rights,” said Asad al-Ibrahim, a battalion leader serving under al-Sheikh. “I hope as Muslims we will take the advantage of leadership after crushing the regime and show all people how Islam will give everyone their democratic rights regardless of religion.”


I mean if they want to create an Islamic State, fine, as long as they provide full protection for ALL citizens. This must be the priority. Student types in the movement are not supportive of this line and you can understand why.


Diojen is skeptical. Not only does he disapprove of the religious fervor motivating many of the fighters, he also doesn't approve of the fight itself. He said the best way to change Syria is instead by peaceful action and international pressure. His opinions, however, have led to anonymous death threats. Student activists like Diojen are not alone.

Some members of the Free Syrian Army are also apprehensive about the course of the conflict. Fighters like Nader Ajini, who calls himself a “moderate Muslim,” say they worry that international support is flowing directly to the more extreme, violent elements of the Free Syrian Army. Although religious extremists are a minority, Ajini said they receive the vast majority of funding and weapons and the pressure is mounting on moderates to join them.

I expect Assad to be ousted eventually. These lot aren't the Libyan rebels who couldn't organize an execution of an unarmed leader without NATO bombers, they will wear down the Assad regime and will receive more and more equipment and help from the Gulf and NATO states. Let's just hope once Assad is gone a reasonable and just order can deelop in the country, whatever the model.
