The only one who can stop AlQaeda in Syria, is the Syrian government! Maybe the West should stop supporting those AlQaeda linked rebels.

The West should stop supporting the Gulf States, esp. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who support the al Qaeda linked rebels.

Divide and conquer can be a useful strategy. We should apply it to those two Gulf states. Let them engulf each other. Don't know about you but I'm tired of prostituting myself for oil.

What a croc. The only sensible comment this time is fro Syrian except for the BS about the West supporting Al Queda.

The Syrian government WITH a regime change will still control Syria and have the SAA. This government can invite countries to help stabilize the country and remove the al Queda, that is a logical and peaceful way of returning the country to self control.

However you guys like the blood and guts and bombing women and children, schools and on and on and feel Assad has every right to do so and until that attitude changes with his regime and SAA nothing different will happen and more foreigners will keep showing up thanks to Assad.

so your analogy is that because al queda has Russian rifles, grenades and rocket launchers then Russia is backing al queda in Syria??
The Rebels have mostly Russian made weapons that they have seized from stock piles at airports etc does that mean by default they too are backed by Russia??
Didn't you read the article,the arms are bought on the black market by Saudi Arabia some will be from Eastern Europe,some of the arms are Israeli,then they are sent through Turkey into Syria for the Terrorists,also its all co-ordinated through a command centre in Jordan,the criminals are up to their filthy necks in blood,so what the hell does this have to do with Russia backing al-Qaeda?you are getting more desperate by the minute.

Arms were sent by Croatia at the behest of Washington. Croatia is our bought and paid for in blood lackey, not to mention co-conspirators/executioners in ethnic cleansing. When we say "jump", they ask "how high?". Of course, they've already threatened us with the public release of our participation in Operation Storm when we get too cocky, so we can only tell them to jump so high.
