Dude The Taliban was created in the 80's by the CIA, trained and armed to fight the Russians occupation.



The Taliban movement traces its origin to the Pakistani-trained mujahideen in northern Pakistan, during the Soviet war in Afghanistan. When Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq became President of Pakistan he feared that the Soviets were planning to invade Balochistan, Pakistan so he Akhtar Abdur Rahman. In the meantime, the United States and Saudi Arabia joined the struggle against the Soviet Union by providing all the funds.

Russia is backing Assad, who is a mass murderer, because Assads regime is the primary purchaser of Russias weapons. It's a money thing for Russia. They turn a blind eye to Assads bloodbath.

America is backing the rebels, who are really Al Qaeda murderers, terrorists, and thugs.

Neither America nor Russia are backing THE PEOPLE who are being slaughtered.
Both America and Russia are backing evil. Plain and simple.



It's got nothing to do with Assad buying Russian weapons.
What it is about is geopolitics.
The Middle East, and the Eastern Mediterranean are strategic points on the map.
Russia has lost a lot of ground in the Mediterranean as a whole and the Middle East in general since the fall of the Soviet Union.
Syria is it's last real bastion in the region.
On the Syrian coast, the Russian's have a naval station at Tartus. It has existed since Soviet times.
If Syria falls to pro western forces, then Russia will lose it's last port in the Mediterranean. Russia will not allow this to happen. Therefore Russia will back Assad.

America wants to remove Russian influence in the region completely, so started this civil war in Syria and will back it's side in it.

Caught in the middle are the Syrian people.

Actually Assad was voted in,and he won by a large margine,and Russia is as involved in Syria as the US is, providing arms ,training,intelligence and covert activities.
"Russian military advisers are manning some of Syria's more sophisticated air defences, something that would complicate any future US-led intervention ,the air defence command, comprises two divisions and an estimated 50,000 troops, with thousands of anti-aircraft guns and more than 130 anti-aircraft missile batteries"

Yep, there is no winning side here. The BEST move is simply not to play.
There is NOTHING to gain politically here. I really don't get it.
The ONLY goal I can see is to have Assad bleed Russia and Iran dry a little bit, but really, it's a drop in the bucket at best. Maybe someone can explain what the hell we're doing even considering getting involved here to me, but I doubt it.
