Assad's regime is openly committing these crimes because we all know no one in the international community will lift a finger to help the people.

People on this forum who support the regime openly admit that they support a mass murderer

Yes they do, however they fortunately do not have influence over the situation in Syria, just an opinion. I think Assad has played a very good card with the chemical weapons scare and bought himself a couple of months to reorganize, the loser in this case is the Syrian people, the Syrian Rebels and the innocent neighboring countries. Al queda and the terrorists along with the SAA have destroyed Syria making it an uninhabitable country that will take years to rebuild one day if ever.

Yep Assad has ruined Syria for decades to come he's carving out a Alawite corridor and ethic cleansing the Sunni from these areas.
Now over 2.2 million refugees have fled Syria and rising.
And these clowns wonder why radicals have shown up what a joke.

Funny how now there are no more sarin artillery barrages now that the UN is going after Assad's nerve gas.

I have tried to understand his logic but it is hard to figure out. On one hand he did control the different sects in Syria albeit to the detriment of the Sunni. I just cannot see any reason for him bombing the whole country into the 19th century. some of his bombing are a blatant breach of any humanity so I would wonder what his family would say to him now or if they are so arrogant that they feel it is his family right to beat people into submission so they will get back in line.
