I've noticed that a lot of people here seem to have a jaded attitude about the war in Syria. Some are for Assad, some are for the Rebels.
Or more like: some are for the "dictator" and some are for the "terrorists."
Most if not all these attitudes stem not from facts on the ground, but more "gripes" with certain elements involved.
I hate the rebels cause I hate NATO and how the west is in it for their own reasons
I hate the Assad regime because dictators have no place in world governments
No one, it would appear, is taking sides based on what is actually happening on the ground, People seem to care more about their own "attitudes" and
western-spun beliefs than what the average Syrian is thinking in their heads.
My point is:
If you're not there, (If you're a westerner typing stuff about Syria and really don't have any idea about anything other than your jaded,
western-driven beliefs, do you have any business posting rationally about it? No matter what side you support?
(imo) I find it "arrogant"
On that note I hope they figure it out and stop the killing. Glad I'm not there, won't be an armchair expert on something I know very little about.
AKA the Syrian mind set.
