Syrian warplanes bomb rebel-held town, 20 killed

Would you like me to tell you stories of people very close to me that have been tortured? People who've never carried a gun that were arrested for no reason had their wives raped in front of them, fingernails ripped out, they themselves raped, pissed on, cigarette burns, electrocuted etc. rather than looking at unconfirmed videos I know of personal accounts. The Syrian government has gone in shooting at children's funerals. People are chanting without any weapons. How are those people threatening the country? The regime has a 45 year history of torturing people if they simply spoke or posted something against the regime. These are FACTS.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #67)

You really took the saying "ignorance is bliss" to heart. Those actions are obviously not ok but what the regie has done is far worse.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #62)

Arab Spring is dead in Syria

When I personally know people that participated, saw, and heard the protests I can tell you that none of it was fake. When I see the protests in neighborhoods that I've been in I can tell you that they were not fake. You cannot be that ignorant to think all those protests and people tortured were fake. That's yur first problem. Did SANA and dunya tv tell you that?  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #151)

I don't knoww what ditto dog is. And I'm not paid by anyone these are my opinions and solely my own. But apparently you, like the government, cannot take people's opinions without calling names. Theres a method to the madness behind Economics and it seems like you have no idea how it works or else you would have responded with something intellectual and of value. It's easy to call so,some a propagandist when you have nothing else to rebuttle with.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #60)

A military determining a president isn't an election as you stated earlier. He had 30 years to have a fair election and he simply didn't. My family lives in propaganda so I also have firsthand insight on what is going on. The desire for change did come from within and you cannot deny that. The peaceful protests were from within no foreign country did that. So the desire for change did come in but the government reaction was brute force, as it has been since the beginning of this regime. The resistance fighters were formed because they were getting beaten to a pulp. You saw peaceful protests for the first 9 months of the revolution. You never saw gun battles within towns until 9 months after. Anyone that is getting beaten up for 9 months straight is going to retaliate. Sure hafez guaranteed stability because he created fear in people. If you looks t supporters of the regime a large number of them are people in their 60s and 70s. It's the ones that lived through his rule. Under the regime's rule Syria looked very stable from the outside but its a disaster from within. Hafez literally destroyed everything from within the country. He destroyed the economy, educational system, and the natural beauty of the country. Rivers that used to run are now completely dry. There simply was no law and order and separation of powers. People were not held responsible for their actions. There is no doubt in my mind will get worse, even if the regime is toppled. But the country needs to get worse in order to get better. Just as chemo essentially weakens the entire body to kill the cancer. If you don't mind what does the connection you have in Syria do? My guess is it is either someone who has greatly benefited from the regime, or a minority (Christian/alawite s) because from my experience the majority of supporters are under those two categories. Or simply they are just scared for change because they have been well off and enjoy the status quo. On a side note, you seem educated about the middle east and therefore I respect your opinion, unlike most people on here who just regurgitate the news.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #60)

Syrian FM claims rebels no match for military

As far as Syrians go I'd say the majority of his supporters are the rich. It was extremely difficult to make a successful company in syriamwithout having to pay off the government. And if you do make it big the government will come to you and basically force a partnership with them. So essentially the rich feel indebted to him. If they pay the government they have their business operations run much more smoothly. The other reason is because he has instilled fear in the minorities (Shiites, alawites, Sunnis). From the beginning of the protests the government has spun it that it was the Muslim brotherhood that was doing this. Syria has never really been secular. For hundreds of years Christians Sunnis Shiites alawites have lived together without problems but now Assad has terrified the minorities. They are slowly starting to change their opinions on the situation as people realize Assad will not be able to sustain power. As far as foreigners? I'm not sure, especially the people that live in the west and are prospering in the west and enjoying their freedom. I'd say Russians are supporting him because he is one of their few remaining allies and their last presence in the middle east. The Russians, just like the west, are trying to benefit from the middle eastern resources. Russia has obviously gotten weaker since the 1960s and Syria is one of their few remaining allies. I honestly think they expected Assad to wrap up the protests early on but it proved to not work. You'll see that they have been slowly changing their rhetoric. China will just do whatever Russia does. Iran has obviously always been a huge Assad supporter and will continue to do so. The middle east is a very complicated area with a long history.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #28)

You people obviously have absolutely no concept of,economics. The responses to the past two comments can be answered in an economics 101 class.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #56)

My family is in Syria. If given a guarantee that they wouldn't be shelled if assembling peacefully, which they should have at the beginning, then you would see millions of people out in the street. Are you going to tell me the majority of Syrians are rebels. This is a classic case of the minority ruling the majority. The rebels you speak off got shelled before they had a weapon. Because they were trying to do as you are now, voice an opinion.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #43)

Not saying that I agree with it but what's wrong with western aid? The west has the most prosperous countries in the world. Clearly the system works. They all have a sustainable plan. Just food for thought.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #53)

The beginning of this had nothing to do with the west or Russia or china or Iran. It was Syrians asking for freedom and democracy. You tend to forget that minute point. I want the best for the people of my country. I want the, to have a higher standard of living. What you want is the continuation of an oppressive regime that has caused the country to deteriorathereof within for the past 45 years. Rather than shooting protestors Assad could have said we'll have a FAIR election. He had the chance of being great for the country but he blew it.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #25)

Syria's battling economy may hold on with help from friends

"syria's friends" will only help it for so long. I think the Russians know now that they made a mistake at the beginning supporting Assad so strongly. I think they expected him to end the protests quickly and they did not expect it to get so big. That's why you are seeing Russia's stance slowly start to change. They're too stubborn to quickly change their tone on the situation because they do not want to admit making a mistake. But that's just my opinion.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #10)

Syria rebels totally move out of embattled Salaheddin: FSA

The FSA is not going to be put at the head of the government. There is already an interim government that has been created to immediately take over when the regime topples. Any alternative is better than a dictatorship. A dictatorship is NEVER right no matter the situation.  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #22)

The "rebels" are Syrians that asked for a voice and their freedom. Should your country bomb your house for you voicing your opinion?  (Aug 18, 2012 | post #41)
