<quoted text>"Help Syria at ANY cost?" Assad still has plenty of remaining citizens to bombard, yet. Thousands of schools may have been destroyed, but there are still some remaining that Assad's forces could target yet.
As you say, Assad can then take on the entire Arab world (and the West - whilst he at it)! Stuff the citizens of Syria, as long as your Bashar remains in power after all of that.
This shows all you care about is the survival of the regime, above all else. Not the people.
Please spare all of us your predictable rhetoric, its getting old..

The colour that dominated them brownies and whipped them into submission if they dared look at him in the eye... The colour that looked over his multitude of slave labor sweating in the fields, while he drank lemonade on his big old porch connected to his beautiful mansion...

Let's see if russia makes enough of an excuse to play more of a part for assad and drive the blood crazed west out....

I don't think so, russia wasn't going to waste their time with that dead end country Afghanistan, the same way america have now discovered it for themselves and finally reversed their military vehicle
out of that shit hole. Russia have greater interests vested in syria. They know if syria falls then the vice like grip of the west will tighten and pose more of a direct threat for them in the future... No one can predict how far NATO is willing to go if russia intervenes, they haven't tasted true competition yet.. Much like a school bully who meets someone his own size..

The US has been on the war path over a solid decade now and have spent billions, and are still spending huge amounts in Afghanistan which is bearing no fruit due to a corrupt people and gross mismanagement... The iraqi leader is now severing ties with the kurds and sunnies, he is suppressing freedoms and turning into a dictator. This shows how vain and costly these wars have been, along with all the unnecessary life lost.. I'm sure some dumb americans are saying but hey we beat the taliban and al quada, that's just short sited and they will breed again in those areas once america can't afford to stick around, the difference is this time around they'll be more bent on making america pay for invading...

Russia knows they'll be facing a country where its economy is cracking beneath the surface and can really add strain on a it where internal strife is swelling up... Add the fact that the US has a weak president who's better off collecting cotton like a good boy....

When you lose the debate you normally resort to name calling.

Yes, your tired of the war. Luckily for you, you can log off. Getting bored with it?
Just go back to attacking the USA.

No name calling here bud, and my fat comment above shows my keen interest... Attack america what a joke, its all interlinked. Its funny when the educated world plays dumb for the interests of their own government, even if they're not get a crumb out of it...
