Another revolving door for the insurgency leadership, if you call it a leadership. This shows not one person has full control of the so-called rebellion, and no one person has the full support of the Syrians. They are opportunists using "democracy" and "freedom" terms to gain support and overthrow a government, so they can be in power. Little do they know they are just lackeys of the West.

The drum that they dont have a leadership have been beating for a while now but little do u know that they r slowly becoming more organised. Just because they were pushed back doesnt mean they have no leadership if u read another article where it talks about assad forces shoring up hold on captial cos a lot of Syria is gone from their hands and they the forces r retreating back to the Alawite dominated areas of Syria it explains why they r trying their best to hold damascus. I agree that there r individuals amongst them who r opportunists but that is a minority who the people pick on and stereotype it as the whole of the rebellion. It is Assad and the ones before him who has used 'freedom' to control people, brutally at times. It is Assad and his regime who is a lackey to Russia and Iran in its entirety while only certain selected groups of rebels r western lackeys not the entire rebellion.

As if those AlQaeda terrorists and Islamic extremists would ever accept any "leadership" from the FSA! What a laugh.

What rubbish, open your eyes to the gravity here. This is not some enemy that's just sprung up for assad to demonize based on his propaganda.. These terrorists have a history and are filthy opportunists.. When mali's central government fell to a coup al quada was waiting in the wings and they over ran the north. They proceeded to enforce sharial law and desecrate so many ancient sites and treasures...

These are the same killers from the Afghanistan and iraq wars who mercilessly bombed women and children... Now syria is the most hard hit by these groups, but bear in mind i still separate the legitimate citizens that despise assad from these good for nothing terrorists. That being said some of these people have sold their souls to see assad removed, but believe me it will catch up to them, the entire region and perhaps field more dangers for the west. So yes this "axis of evil" no doubt in your eyes need to contain these parasites before they breed and spread.....

Be careful when you use wrong names...This is the Syrian National Army..not Assad's...
Do you that the armed forces are about 500.000 soldiers...are all these Assad's private army..bullshit..only low minded people will believe that big lie...
Nevertheless, who cares how they are called, the important thing is that they get rid of the black ugly islamic flag...Hell, we are in the 21st century after all..

The amount of stereotyping u do without even thinking is pathetic cos all I hear is Terrorists terrorists terrorists. Makes me feel u just hate Islam and muslims and so all r terrorists or u shud really you analyze the situation before actually making a post? Cos the more you post the more dumb u sound. First of all u have no idea about the history of Syria under Alawite rule so I suggest if ur talking history plz READ some history urself. There is no AL QAEDA in syria they r called Jabhat An Nusra they had nothing to do with Al qaeda till recently they claimed alligence with them. They r a small group within the FSA just like many other groups who have UNITED to oust Assad and his ruling alawite family and deviant ways.

LETS TALK MALI SHALL WE... Now before u assume anything which I know u do A LOT Al qaeda itself is divided in to many groups some r extremists and some r Jihadists and there is a huge difference between them The reason attacked Mali was the fact that they were following a very deviated form of Islam like grave worshiping etc The western media loves to manipulate the situation and u out of all shud know that there were sites destroyed because of fighting and some sites were destroyed because they were temples being used for wrong purposes. Plz dont talk about merciless bombing with me the US in the 1st year of the Afghan war killed more innocent women and children then the taliban ever have and ever will.

Your just watering down the presence and significance of those unsavory groups that have attached themselves with FSA. Al quada is a very well connected and lucrative organization and has the ability to sponsor al nursa and its likes, if not participate themselves. Assad is breathing a sigh of relief with an experienced hezbollah taking on more of a roll. Its madness to think that hardened terrorist aren't the ones taking assad on... Perhaps your numb brain needs to see assad fall first before the real strength of these extremists emerge, you'll see them dissociate themselves and devour the FSA where it stands.... Even if it were the case of them not playing a roll then they would just wait on the side lines whilst the syrian forces deteriorate and collapse, then they'd descend in force. Much like hitler waited out the spanish civil war in order to make a quick effortless occupation....

I'm not comparing terrorists with the US army in those other wars, that's another kettle of fish. Al quad are a potent force, they took Goa, timbukto and another town. Its undeniable they were responsible for the mess in northern mali.

Oh, pshaw. There are only a few dozen al qaeda types in Syria and besides, when they were handed out their weapons, the Qataris made them sign an affidavit, swearing they would hand them in later and a notary public from the CIA witnessed the signing. What more of a guarantee could one ask for?

I lent some of them my camping gear, they said it would be returned once their flag was flying over assads residence, but now i'm doubting it seeing I didn't have a CIA agent as a witness. I think they pulled a fast one on me....

Ok first of all u really need to stop on ur stupid predictions about the future shit like u will c u will c the extremists take over deteriorating blah blabida blah blah ur making in ur post stop trying to act like a psychic of some sort i dont know if any1 had told u this U R NOT PSYCHIC. I havent watered down anything I have described the FSA to u without being biased where as with ur biased approach u think that all of FSA r terrorists which inself is stupidity cos SAA r bigger terrorists there is bombing and motoring civilians openly. U seem to know A LOT about al qaeda im guessing a LOT has come from media reports and spoken word most it usually faults cos the reports r controlled according to the purposes of the west has. Ur talking about HezbulSatan they r weak cowards only good for torturing and massacring people or launching a homemade rocket they do **** all when it comes to armed conflict like in the Israeli and southern Lebanon conflict where was Hezb then sucking each other so let me tell u this if bashar is resting on Hezbulsatan the end is near. Ur point about hardened terrorist only taking on Assad is again a stereotype that u keep making again again or like I said u just hate muslims straight up who r on the frontline fighting unlike other so called pussies in the war trained by the CIA who will descend in full force with the help of US to cause chaos and muslims will be blamed again. IT IS UNDENIABLE THE MESS AL QAEDA MADE wow where did u get that from WESTERN MEDIA?

The Alawite dictator known as Assad is a race traitor to the Arab world.

The Iranians see his people (the Arabs) as subhuman. They will slaughter the Arabs in revenge for old slights the second they manage to exterminate the Jews. These Arabs should be uniting with Israel to take down their true enemy...

Some good points there the Iranians do consider the wider muslims as being subhumans and they really have a hatred for the Arabs which is why they r trying to preach true Islam to the Iranians so they may change their ways, I think unification with extremists jews is out of the question since they want the head of muslims on a platter as well so its kind of a complex situation.
