You don't believe its that simple do you? I know the quality of your contributions here.
No I do not, The situation is much more complicated than most understand. This does not make either or any side the victims nor are there any "Good
Everybody has been jostling for a piece of the pie. (Russia, Iran, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UK, USA, Turkey). Its all about money on ALL
However here at ATS many crucify the US, UK, Saudis and toss in a shot or two at the Evil
'Zionist Israeli" for good measure.
While it's obvious they either ignore or are ignorant of the fact that it takes two to tango. It's also lost on many the true nature of Syrian history
of stirring the ME pot going back decades. Time to pay the piper? Possibly. Only time will tell.
Nobody cares about the dead syrians except the general populations of the countries where it suits the position of the rulers for them to feel
that way. If it didn't suit it wouldn't be on the news 24 hours. If it wasn't useful or it was embarrassing you would have to scratch up reports on
the internet (like the current situation in Libya).
It seems that at least some here can and have stayed objective instead of attempting to polish 'Rat turd' in the false belief of making either side
they support at least palatable if not acceptable to the masses. The problem there is that once a turd always a turd. Pick a side in this one, you'll
This whole thing with the Chemical weapons deal is a way to put things back into a face saving stalemate for the USA and Russia (the big dogs).
Its a way for both to back away from a situation where outright conflict was becoming possible.
While Obama and Putin play chicken with millions of lives this deal is only face saving I agree. Nothing was really accomplished except that now if
either side used them then there will be real consequences. I do not believe it will quell anything.
The Rebels and Assad can now slug it out on the ground with whatever support can be poured in, maybe grind up another 100k people before its
done. No government cares about that, only who wins and who benefits from the winner.
Well from where I sit I doubt either side will simply lay down their arms and call it quits. This has the potential to go on for years if not decades.
Neither side seems willing to talk. Imagine that, could you even see that happening? I don't. I wish I were wrong in my assessment, but something
tells me I'm not.
Time will tell.
