Assad is not a dictator. The rebels are islamist terrorists supported by America and other "peace loving" nations from EU.

Who says Assad is a dictator and not the bearded islamist mice crawling around affecting health and life...The Syrian Army will spread within a few hours a very powerful insecticide to prevent the propagation of this plague.

Assad is Hitler's reincarnation, and the opposition to his rule will confine him to the history books when their victory for freedom gather pace. Women and children are murdered by his regime, the same pattern Hitler took before the world united and took the evil bastard out.

Long live the freedom fighter.

Why can't FSA sit down and negotiate with Assad? Negotiation is the only way forward in this conflict. It worked in Yemen- why can't it succeed in Syria? If Syria falls! Iran, Russian & china to follow respectfully.

Getogrips, i cant beleive you still beleive in this world unity propaganda that takes out "bad" people, the world unites to take out a person who doesnt serve their best interest. the Gulf States and america and israel and europe united to get rid of Bashar al Assad, By doing that they will Gain 3 Goals, first goal, they will establish a new syrian state that will be very obedient to america and israel, second they will Eliminate Irans major ally and the famous Route of weapons supply to hezbollah. third reason is that they will make narrow minded people beleive that america removed a dictator who was killing and starving his country from power. Before the Al assads were in power, Syria was a weak unstable country, hafez al assad, Strengthened the Military and Fixed the country making it a Middle Eastern Superior Power. Al assads made syria into what it is today, The Islamists who want to rule the country now have no credit in fixing syria or experience in ruling a country like syria. they tried the stunt theyre doing now in 1982 but Hafez al assad CRUSHED them in 28 Days, eliminating almost 98% of the Islamists (who are supported by America and Israel), Times have changed and Bashar al assad cannot do that now. the syrians will be in greater danger when ruled by the islamists than they were in when they were ruled by al assad. The Islamists Kill Christians and Muslims that arent of the Sunni Sect, and they want to rule the country in a very very unfair way, just like syria was before al assad. The islamists forgot theyre Dealing with Bashar Al assad, a name that sent shivers through the Veins of Islamists a few years ago. Aleppo will be cleaned from Terrorists in the coming days, Taliban and Al Qaeda are Swarming in Syria but soon they will be Slaughtered .

If you are not American and Israel friends you do not have place in this world, if you are Russian friends you will be targeted by American , at the same time Russian can not protect from western, so it's better to distance your self from Russian before you will be targeted by hyenas .be neutral until true democracy will come to the world.

They should stop to fight. Their president can be in office. It should be new presidential elections in future, but he can be president a few years.
Certainly that these people, who are called rebels are manipulated and incited to hatred by usa and israel and another puppets of these two countries like for instance Saudi Arabia or Turkey etc. They should not be stupid and silly, this civil war in Syria is only to bring profits for usa, israel ( for instance to install a lackey of these two countries in Syria) and it will be no better.

It's important that Syrian military crush rebels in Aleppo. This city will be a turning point.

And to think I started all of this by exposing corruption in Tunisia.

You might even think that I was a CIA black ops operative.

Because Russia and China give Assad guns to shoot any negotiator and their families. That is why no one will come forward. He does the same to his army soldiers, kills families of deserters and listens into calls from soldiers to their families. All deserters caught are shot, any suspected are jailed and tortured. Does this sound like a leader that wants to negotiate or talk at all.

Islam ruled over the world for over 1300 years and will once again be at the forefront of world affairs once our brothers in Syria defeat and shame Assaad and confine him to the scrap heap of world history. People need to look back at this history with an unbiased view and once they do, they will see the justice, fairness and guidance that occurred during this period.
