Keep singing its a change of tune, and while I would like to see where you get your information from, it does sound interesting at least.
To say that the whole problem in the middle east is a conspiracy set up by nato, and that the countries as a whole do not want democracy is a little far fetched. While you may have spoken to a few natives who either concur or give you your ideas about the middle east that does not neccessarily mean that the whole country, countries in this case, does not want democracy. Nor does it mean that those rebels do not want democracy, and if you want democracy and one of the most powerful countries in the world offers to help you attain it, would you not work with them?
No powerful country can give you democracy. When you have power to decide then, it is democracy. When you are bombed into democracy, or subjected to decade of occupation, so that someone builds up your democracy, that's oppression. It is very sad, how you people disrespect other nations, and think that they are not capable to build for themselves the system, that is good for them. You did not invent democracy. It comes from ancient Athens, Greece. They knew how to get democracy, so do other people, if they want it. What they want from you is, that you mind your own business, and leave their business to them.

<quoted text>I can see where your coming from, that's why i think democracy will never work in that part of the world.Culture and religion are above any law.
But i still think Syria will need to impose some major reforms, in saying that what is happening now has got nothing to do with freedom or people power, it's instigated from foreign powers and the only motive is to destroying the country and it's people.
Syria is old culture; its leadership is educated, and informed. They dispensed with Monarchy, and established One Party System. It worked fine, but the world changed, so they need change too. And their Government, and some opposition, are already working on change. For example, the Minister of Economy, who recently entered the Government, is from the opposition, and he is working on reform. But the West and Qatar composed the Government, from people, who were outside of the country for a long time, and want them in; because they are their people. They do not care about Syrian people, but about their own interests; as usual.

Here we go again slagging off your own country, the country who have given you the right to live here as a foreign national. This is a 1st world country, your stone age mind set is perhaps more suited to Syria. Again Cameron makes £120k a year, Assad is worth hundreds of millions - enough said!!

I call it that, if it’s Syria, than its Syrian peoples’ business; and if it’s Libya, its Libyan peoples' business; and neither is your, or mine business. People have the rights to own their territory, and what is happening on it.

Racist! Ha, that's a good one!! Britain encourages multicultural societies and neutralisation. Somehow I don't see Syria so forthcoming to foreign nationals do you? For a start a foreigner can never apply for a Syrian passport.

Their self centeredness is beyond comprehension of a normal person. I wonder, what it takes to negate other people to that extent, and plainly assume that you know it all for them; and you can also bomb them, and occupy them, to force them to apply your formula on them. I guess for some it is history of having upper hand over others, but I wonder what happened with these Canadians; some of them are not even from the former Empires. I guess these people have so little power in their individual lives that they just grab onto power of their States, to pump up their Egos.

The plot thickens, it either shows a weakness inside the Syrian security forces or an escape route left open for Assad to follow at a later time if he toppled. The Russians are more interested in Syria's future with or without Assad at the helm, and I fully expect Assad is only too aware he is playing the chess game of his life, with limited squares available on the board to maneuver his piece.
Russia cannot accommodate the playing field getting any larger than it is at present, that would stretch its forces and incurr worldwide comdemnation in return. The bullishness of Russia is not without attracting terrorist to its own shores either, it happened befor and they wouldn't be eager to face that expierence again. There are too many ifs and buts to safely determine the outcome of this complicated mess, and thereby we are none the wiser how the future will unfold in the months or years ahead.

First of all countries like Qatar should have no say whatsoever who can and can't be in the opposition, see this is what i don't get they say Assad is a dictator and yet they want to dictate who the opposition and the gov't should be in Syria.
Only the Syrian people can decide who can represent them,and how the system should be not some corrupt politician who's got $$$$ signs in his eye's, or believes that he will get those 72 virgins when he's dead..LOL..
I still believe a two party system is the way it should be,and if Assad is is one of the candidates, well that's the people's choice, seems the instigators of this ugly war are scared to their bone that if Assad is the running he may actually be voted in, but again that's up to the Syrian's to decide,not foreigners, it's their country.

And one more thing, all those extremists/jihadists and Al terror groups must be destroyed in the name of humanity, cause without that Syrian's will never reconcile and find peace.
God/Allah bless the Syrian army and it's citizens.
