What would possess someone to kill themselves following the orders of someone else? I just don't get it.

Yeah stupid rebels, they are just fighting for an opposition leader who will own the glory if they achieve victory which they won't cause good prevails over evil. Evil rebels have no respect for their government.

That is the problem, there is no responsible government!!! Assad is a tyrant butcher that came into the role by birth not by election, so he feels he does not need to answer to Syrians, they have to answer to him, once that is cleaned up so will the Civil War.

I agree, I think it is the dumbest form of military move ever. I mean how bright do you have to be to kill yourself, I guess as long as you are just a bit dumber than the guy that got you to do it. This crap about the 72 virgins is just BS created by some bogger as there is no truth to it. The main deal I am told is that the family of the bomber get taken care of and never need again, and that could be quite an enticement to someone with nothing.

The problem is, in a nutshell, that Assad never asked the CIA for help. That insurrection would have been crushed by now.

To be honest, I never asked the CIA for help. They just offered it and who was I to say no? They just made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

Has Syria been repressing and killing Kurds for thirty years just because they seek the basic rights we take for granted?

Has Turkey?

Tyranny is a relative notion, not for the simple-minded to ponder.

Bizarre stuff but it has truth to it.I have seen a YouTube clip in Syria where a dying jihadist is surrounded by his mates screaming at the poor guy on whether he can see the 72 virgins.It was all they seemed to want to know.

Some of those idiots on the West are so stuck in their election mode, that they think that it is answer to everything. Actually, Western societies have elections, but people have no power whatsoever. The clowns they elect are not accountable to them. The Governments can spend their tax money on waging wars, while cutting services, like education, and medical; and people have no power to do anything about it. People can protest, but nobody in the government ever considers the concerns of the protesters. Yet these morons think that they have perfect system, which they have rights to force on others by bombings, invasions, occupations, and all kinds of abusive methods.
