Nice try!!! For you American citizens are the best choice to run every country on Earth; they anyway, at this point, indirectly run Canada too. Syrians have different idea, though. They want the leader with loyalty to Syria only, thatÂ’s why they fright together with Assad, and his Government. The Texan was chosen by former Syrians, those living outside of Syria, so he might be suited to govern Syrian Diaspora, from Texas.
The SAA fights with Assad, not the people fighting with Assad, there is a difference, SAA has to, the people have also chosen to fight against Assad because they want change. You keep saying that Syrians want a leader with loyalty to Syria, which is MY stand, but you keep saying that leader IS Assad, while the people disagree and yet you still back Assad which means you donot back the peoples choice!! Why?

You keep repeating that Syrian people fight Assad, which is not true. One fraction of Syrian people and that is Sunni Muslim fundamentalist, fight Assad. And along with them Syrian Diaspora fights; which are not Syrian people any more, but they are Americans, NetherlandÂ’s, French, and similar. Also along with them paid International mercenaries fight. All fighters are salaried by Gulf Monarchs, and are trained, and armed by the West. Therefore, the West, and Gulf Monarchs also fight against Assad. Majority of Syrian people: Alewites, Shiites, Christians, non-believers, and Sunni moderates, fight together with Assad; because they want Secular tolerant State as they had with Assad; with some changes, which they want done peacefully, gradually, and under the guard of present leadership, which was not pushed on them from outside of the country.

So why is it that it is foreigners fighting against Assad ?
And why is it there is no leader from Syria, that they have to import one from abroad ?

What good is this CIA we fund out of our pockets if they can't (or worse yet, won't) even separate fact from the fiction Chalabi was selling them.

Next thing you know they'll be telling us the Reichstag is burning.
