You are stuck to the past habits of the West deciding which leader leaves, and when. This time Russia and China decided that the time is ripe for the West to learn, that all countries have sovereignty guaranteed to them by the UN Charter. That implies that the West will have to learn to respect 'right to sovereignty' rule of the International Law. May be you can learn that too.
Exactly!!! Very well said!!

You do know that it was the Rebels or protestors that wanted meetings and Assad was the one who said he would not negotiate with people that do not follow his direction. This was long before there were al queda, which if you did read any history you will learn that Assad the Terrorist is the one that turned them loose in Syria to organize al queda forces.

There were no original protesters! This is the CIA design for Libya, Egypt, and Syria; and each developed differently, but all had the same purpose: to trigger the conflict, and end up with the Regime Change.

Oh brother and you walk around the house with tin foil hats as well, I am sure. Those are like the comments during the 60's when anyone with an opinion was a communist in the US. When you make comments like that it puts you in the category of the conspiracy theorists unless you have links supporting your opinion.

There were original and legitimate protesters but they were quickly sidelined by foreign and domestic islamic extremists heavily funded and enabled by their host states and by Western, mainly US, interests in fanning the Syrian flames in the hopes of countering the chain of events initiated in nearby Iraq by overseeing a Shi'ite rise to governance. Israel, well - they had their own agenda which was effectively intertwined with US interests specific to certain political circles.

Besides the majority of Syrians themselves, the losers have been to date, the original protesters, certain political ideologies entrenched in the US and Israel and the host states of the middle east that have found themselves in an uncomfortable position of both a potential blowback for extremist support from their native populations (i.e Turkey and Egypt) and from the extremists themselves, upon returning from Syria or by simple synergistic appeal.(extremism as a virus transcending borders)

The only winners to date have been the practitioners of salafist sophistry sitting on the Saudi and GS thrones and only because Washington refuses to handle them with anything but kid gloves and finds it easier to share their delusions of control over the salafist extremist menace they in large part have purposely unleashed.

George should study the events leading to the Russian revolution of 1917 and the rise of Bolshevism to understand what may lie ahead for Syria but I doubt he's equipped to understand the analogy let alone understand its consequences.

I'm sure he'll reply with a comment about what Bolshevism has to do with the drive for an Islamic Caliphate. LOL

Well if that is your belief, I can understand why you have a twisted version of the outcomes and why your bum buddies follow you with tongues hanging, you all wear the tin hats and run around your house waiting for the next download of information. Any update on Elvis yet?

Oh I forgot, the West gave them weapons and money with the hope they could topple the government in a week. When they got their azzes handed to them, those morons decided that they needed to demand that Assad leave before they would even talk! Completely idiotic strategy.

Seems to be working so far, have you seen Assad making any appearances anywhere?? Do you think he will be in Geneva to represent a country that does not want him? I think he will not show up because he is in fear of being arrested and held to stand trial or victim of a bullet from one of his loyal servents, what do you think, not much of a leader if you ask me. I mean what kind of leader hides in his palace and has everything delivered to him and all he does is give orders to kill more of his Syrian civilians, ya gotta be pretty dark souled to be loyal to him.

You really have no idea of the chronological order of how the Civil War came to be, do you? Go ahead do some reading but keep you mind open and accept facts as they are.
