There are no moderates in the Free Syrian Army why are you desperately defending them?

No I am not defending them I have a whole thread were i call out the human rights abuses of the Rebels and another where i argue that one could potentially label them "nationalist terrorists" depending on ones view on the conflict.

So no I am not defending them i am simply pointing out that its a gross oversimplification to call them all a bunch of Al-Qa'ida terrorists.

There is no doubt that all parties involved could be described as "terrorizing".

USA has helped Al Qaida before too. USA was investing money to buy weapons to them when they were founding Al Qaida.

These guys are worse than the government forces...

U.S. Backed – FSA Rebels Massacre an Entire Christian Village in Syria... They torture, they behead and they rape.... oh and they hate the west too.. Seems like a stupid move to me..

www.abovetopsecret.com...



Wow we should watch for the propaganda here. This bad guys raping and killing women and children line is as old as the hills. Check out old WWI posters...."Huns Kill Women and Children....Tell It To The Marines"....come to find out years later it was simply propaganda.

Now Hezbollah is fighting for the Syrian government. Oh how rich. Anyone who fights against Hezbollah we should support.

What can we expect. The country has not been "ruled" with moderation.

US arms to flow to militants via Turkey


Media reports say Turkey, a NATO member, is likely to be the transit destination for US-supplied lethal weapons to foreign-backed militants fighting the Syrian government


FYI....it was the Turkish Ambassador that had met with Ambassador Chris Stevens at the so-called "Consulate" in Benghazi, Libya the afternoon of September 11, 2012....where later that evening the deadly attack took place.

IOW....President Obama has been funneling arms to the 'opposition' of Assad for a long time....only now, he can do it in the open.

Supplying these guys with Javelins will probably be a very bad idea; remember that the FGM-148 is designed to also capable of engaging helicopters. Supplying these guys with MANPADS has the potential of being a monumentally disastrous mistake.

This may be cold but, I say if the Syrians and 'oppositions' want to sling Sarin at each other all day long, let them do so. Inside Syria. What the rest of the world needs to do is make sure that its contained there and that these weapons do not make it out of the border.

Are you really buying the whole chemical weapon thing? The US has provided pretty much 0 proof besides their word. I really doubt he would be stupid enough to use a WMD, even a small one, especially when he's winning the war in the first place.

Assad hasn't even used chemical weapons...If he had there would be hundreds of videos on LiveLeak.com showing the evidence....Nearly every one in Syria has access to a camera phone and internet......Much more so than in countrys like Iraq...
EDIT: I hope the Russians give Assad state of the art missile defence systems purely to **** israel and america of.
