Stop what?<quoted text>
Or, maybe Assad will come to an agreement to stop

There was no reason for Syria to fall into the trap it's currently in beyond the sectarian thingy leading to the need for arms. Even with a population of 20 million plus and some oil deposits that shthole can't compare to any US state in the economic sense. It's like, "hey__what the fk do these people do to get by?"
Hah, they didn't do squat__the friends of government, Alewites, Baathist's etc were handed cushy deals and the workers-farmers-Sunnis-Christi ans were given the high hard one.
