I don't much care about the deaths in Syria because it's self inflicted and they asked for this. They BEGGED for this. Well now that have it, and
it's all fun and games until the Government doesn't fold like a cheap suit and they really fight to survive. Imagine that.
However, it was about this time last year, give or take a bit, when the first street protests began in the same citys the first rebel fighting began.
At THAT time, as I was watching them, calls were being made for escalation into armed removal of Assad's regime and wouldn't the outside world love
to come help! I saw the coverage on Anonymous sites and I saw coverage on less known and sometimes far more serious sites like The People's
Liberation Front. ......
VERY shortly after, the protests turned violent (I was shocked... think E-trade baby)
then it wasn't long before open fighting in the streets hit. Whammo....Another Egypt, but Assad isn't as well behaved as Mubarak and won't run like
Gadaffi or Saddam. I've read reports in the news, as we all have, that the fighting died down at periods over this year and "stalled" as the rebels
called it. Right before DEMANDING the International Community feed, fund and arm their rebellion.
Well, they now have their rebellion. For all it's bloody glory, there it is. Isn't it everything they wanted? I ONLY feel for the regular Syrian
civilians whose only crime is living in a building that gets caught in the path of this stupid fight. It never EVER had to happen, nor should it have
been allowed to.
