The rebel Syrian army targeting civilian flights, targeting innocents. More people to the already 23,000+ killed in Syria
1,600 civilians killed in the past WEEK

What does it take for something like this to be resolved?
If other countries get involved, Syria has already threatened to use chemical weapons.

They aren't 'Rebels' so I would suggest you stop using that terminology.
They give future GOOD Rebels a terrible name..

Threatening civilian airliners, TERRORISM.

Seriously hypocritical to support a movement that would support bombing airliners after 9/11...

Then if it is true, CIA sending missles, Why hasn't Syria done what they say they would? Use chemical weapons? Or do they have chemical weapons at all? Even if they did, and used them think of the results...

I think we should all call them terrorists instead of rebels. The media has got it mixed up. The real rebels are the ones protecting their country from NATO...

lol nice try,i never said he should

The fact remains that Assad IS the elected leader of Syria,not a hard-line terrorist organization set up by the west to illegally overthrow a foreign government and controll one of the largest stockpiles of chemical weapons and wmd's on the planet,who if i may add have officially formed a de-facto government in Syria
You think human rights abuses WHERE bad in Syria,you just wait...
Just for fun i looked it up,and amazingly it is Israel that takes 1st place for human rights abuses,fancy that

America, israel, saudi arabia, uae and others have no business intervening in foreign countries, regardless if the people want assad or not. Last time I heard many prefer assad over the muslim brotherhood, and yes assad is no saint BUT it is not like democracy can exist for a long time in the middle east.

There is too much religious tension. It has always been that way. The people ARE CONSERVATIVE by nature!

I would rather have a sunni dictatorship over a shiite democracy ANY DAY! And lets see just how democratic the muslim brotherhood is in all the arab spring countries. Hopefully they are moderates. Time will tell, and yes they should leave israel alone....as much as I dislike them.

Could Iran use it as justification to get involved?

Imagine the headlines if a civilian airliner full of Iranian officials was blown up by western backed militia.

Do you think the west will advise them which airliners to actaully attack?

Syrian Rebels = El' Ciateh = Nato = the US = the CIA. What a complete joke - these guy blew up our boys in Iraq & Afghanistan & now we fund them & arm them in Libya & Syria.

A complete farce & the news media goes along with it.

Don't piss on my leg & tell me its raining!

Please - we are not stupid - not all of us anyway.

I am willing to concede that nothings 100% certain,there are lies being spread by both sides and non of us has any hard proof,untill then this is all speculation..
For all we know this could be a very well crafted plan to create a conflict and attract all the militant islamic crazies so they kill each other off,who really knows except the people pulling the strings,just be happy this isn't happening in YOUR back yard..

Iran using civilian flights to send weapons to Syria


Western security sources said Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps was employing at least two Iranian airlines to sustain the arms flow to the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad as well as Hizbullah.



“Iran has always used commercial aircraft to fly weapons secretly to
Damascus,” a Western source said. “But now, with NATO efforts to stop the flow, Iran is using the commercial air route nearly exclusively.”



Over the last year, Turkey has reported several interceptions of suspected weapons aircraft to Syria.

In one incident, Ankara said it seized a Yas Air passenger jet with weapons and bombs in March 2011.


This article is from June 2011. It mentions reports of this airline transport being detected in March 2011.

Quite simply:

Why now?

So what should their response be when civilian airliners are used for military purposes?
