This is a military strategy..when they gather at airports, bombing them becomes very easy and effective to be wiped off.

Keep telling yourself that, all these lies and turning of blind eyes will catch up to the west in the end, especially the citizens that had the power to turn their out of control governments around... Do you really believe all the billions spent on these wars have been directly beneficial to the average person, how about the mismanagement and huge funding that's still going into a corrupt Afghanistan... Soldiers are still dying their in vein, and all the grand projects are not following through.. Have these wars helped health care and education, no its only left those very important aspects of society in the dust...

Assad needs to go. As long as there is a possibility of democracy for Syria, it should be considered above all else.

At least there is SOME hope for change under a new government. Assad's reign has outlived itself for the worse.

If the rebels can over run Minakh airbase then that would be a most significant victory for the rebels in many months. Either way if the base can be disabled then it would make helicopter operations more problematic

It is amazing how a group of businessmen, doctors, lawyers, teachers and so on, have organized themselves into a formidable army. They are a force to recon with, and I believe Assad now has a clear picture. I am wondering if in the eleventh hour he will surrender and protect his family or die fighting?

I suppose all those sophisticated fighter jets flying over and bombing libya were also the peoples, I'm sure that the no fly zone didn't play a crucial part in al quada sitting pretty in tripoli today...

Amazing indeed, or course without help from abroad, it seems! What? Weapons are given to them and money and mercenaries. Who pays the piper calls the tune and I am sure those doctors, businessmen do not call the tune . They will be the first victims of an rebel victory as in Iraq where all the intelligensia was assassinated by Mossad. Asd to this formidable army with its paper brigades, they would not last one day without outside support, called aggression. The country is being destroyed and you call that victories. Only foreign interest will win as in Libya. But it seems it is the rabble which is at the receiving end these days. The strength of the SNA is increasing. The new tactics using militias are bearing fruit and there is no talk anymore of desertions. Let the rabble move into a town, empty the population, surround them and pound them with artillery. This diminishes the number of SNA casualties while increasing those of the rabble. It is working. If they want bases, let them take them and pound them accordingly. Even less cover. Helicopters do not need bases as such and can take off and land wherever they want. Fuel can be transported by truckss.

And of course in 1917 the people of Russia rebelled against the czar, because they wanted to be communists. Never heard of Trotsky's boy trained in downtown New York never heard of Jacob Schiff the Rothschild banker who advanced the cash to his brethren . As Chaim Weizman said in 1917..."If we do not get it (the Balfour declaration) we will destroy the British Empire, LIKE WE HAVE DESTROYED THE RUSSIAN EMPIRE. Still think the people rebelled?

You probably believe in santa clause and the tooth fairy to.. Do you see a beautiful democracy shining in iraq and afghanistan, no because its about keeping those countries down by installing a puppet government in order to control the resources.. There will never be the type of democracy your fantasizing over in syria.

How about iraq.. It reflects the futility in establishing a democracy...

Since the iraqi leader has been in place for more than a year, it is
necessarily the case that he is a dictator.

Who expected something else?

Saddam told us that only a dictator could run that
shitpit. He was correct.

Look, in that whole place, there's only one, exactly
one, not even 1 1/2, strong institution, and it runs
the government, everything in politics, the legal
system, the economy, the military, foreign policy,
the media, the culture, education, and religion, and
it's 500+ years out of date. That institution is
Islam, in particular, in this case, Shiite Islam.
Islam has created a shitpit nearly everywhere it has
had power. There's no easy way out.

So, we saw that Saddam was a ruthless, brutal, mad,
sadistic, tyrannical dictator, and the US spent, what,
$3 trillion US dollars, 60,000+ US casualties,
5,000+ US lives, over 10 years of their attention, and
damaged america's economy and the lives of many good US
citizens to fight for truth, justice, freedom,
equality, separation of church and state,
constitutional democracy, freedom of religion,
equality of women, free public education,
environmental protection, nationalized health care,
modern building codes, international free trade,
spay and neuter programs for dogs and cats, clean
air and water, modern plumbing, and the American way
of life, fight against godless Communism, scratch
that, tyrannical dictators and radical Islam, make
that country a shining city on a hill, safe for
McDonald's, KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Coke, Pepsi,
7-Up, Dr. Pepper, Starbucks, Exxon, McKinsey,
Budweiser, Marlboro, Pampers, Dial soap, Wal-Mart,
Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Time-Warner, Citi, Morgan
Stanley, Apple, Dell, and not come until it's over
over there. I.e., rich, old US men sending poor,
young US men to die to make the rich, old men
richer. Bummer.
I know; I know: Hillary "Sisters to Save the World
First" Clinton is sitting there wringing her hands,
chomping at the bit, ready to pay any price, bear
any burden to rush back to Iraq and finish the job
over there, especially for the girls to have full
equality and free access to birth control and be
safe wearing miniskirts after dark on the streets of
Baghdad.

Al-Qaeda is not ruling Libya clueless one.
Afghanistan was ruled by the Taliban and Al-Qaeda until they were removed from power.

Keep telling yourself that those wars produced anything good, and keep producing your brain dead responses.. The western governments love sending dumb serfs like yourself into ambushes, your the perfect candidate to die as their pawn and be a part in a moving propagated news article.
