Well, you can lead a horse to water. That was a long time ago and has nothing to do with me anyway. Anyone who was involved in that war is still trying to forget about it, but the current state of the country is worse and steadily deteriorating. Its now apartheid but in the shadows, I think before long the ANC's true colors will come to the open, and make the apartheid look like a cake walk, sorry it already has..

Things are not great at the moment in South Africa i understand,but that is to be expected,its going to take many years to re structure that Country,Apartheid was ok if you were white,terrible if you were Black or Indian,it was unsustainable as a system,sorry it took so long for them to realize it,i think it was Botha who came to that conclusion and made peace with Mandela who in my opinion is one of the greatest Men who ever lived,maybe the ANC leaders are not up to his mark,even Both had resistance from the likes of Terre Blanche who was a maniac,thank God he didn't win the day or there would have been a blood bath.

Lets get one thing clear, I don't and never have supported apartheid. I agree fully in a democratic run society, But the ANC unfortunately isn't that by a long shot. When you start saying things like South Africa will take time to develop and its undertandable, that's complete rubbish. Its no different to you saying that well if a black mamba bites you everything will eventually work out just fine. You really don't understand the gravity of corruption, violence, incompetence, deterioration of infrastructure, zero progression in education.. Its not 1994 where there was a glimpse of hope, its been shattered and undermined continously on a daily basis by the ruling party. At the end of the day we have a self destructive, greedy and tribal mentality on all levels in this country. Its your typical African mentality that only leads to a primative existence, look at the rest of Africa. I suggest you come live here and experience their sheer inability in all facets first hand, then you wouldn't be talking friend...

Syrian government lost its legitimacy at the moment they started killing women and children. In order for Assad to stay in power Saddam Hussein, Moammer Gaddaffi must be brought to life and continue where they left. Do you think that/can will happen?

Fact 1) Many of your Sunni insurgent heroes battling Assad consider Saddam Hussein a hero.

Fact 2) If the Syrian government lost its legitimacy from day one, the Syrian opposition lost its legitimacy from day two.

In a two year old civil war, does one day really matter?

NATO data: Assad winning the war for Syrians’ hearts and minds

Special to WorldTribune.com

LONDON — After two years of civil war, support for the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad was said to have sharply increased.

NATO has been studying data that told of a sharp rise in support for Assad. The data, compiled by Western-sponsored activists and organizations, showed that a majority of Syrians were alarmed by the Al Qaida takeover of the Sunni revolt and preferred to return to Assad, Middle East Newsline reported.

Wait! I will ride into Damascus on my white steed Saladin, my flowing white robes trailing behind held aloft by my trusty servant, Sancho Clinton, and in one grand gesture, will vanquish both Assad and al Qaeda and multi-ethnic democracy, universal tolerance and a millenium of brotherly love will spring forth from my footsteps.

I've been reading some disturbing news lately. It seems all the democratically, pro-western minded folks in Syria are scrambling back to Assad, at least until he finishes off the salafist invasion backed by our Gulf allies.

What to do? Oh, I know...woo them back to the cause with weapons. They're sure to prevail. Aren't they?

Won't that alienate our allies in the Gulf though? Can I sell putting boots on the ground in Arabia maybe?

I'm pretty confused. Anybody got any other ideas?

See now, Assad thugs want to use the villagers as human shields, The rebels got new powerful arms delivered. The rebel now have capacity to open up new frontiers to keep the thugs running. I cannot wait to see those helicopters,jets and planes coming down. Pilots must be executed, cut into pieces. Post to You Tube and give me their hearts as war trophies. Go rebels go. Use the new weapons generously on Assad , Shabiha and Hezbolla thugs.

The rebs are being armed by half the nations on the planet, so dont anyone say its all American. Europe is major supplier and arab countries. Just how does Putin think this will end. I for one dont care, I look at it as a syrian problem not mine PutinIi is worried about the naval port nothing more and its only going to lead to more killings for a long long time.

I believe the Syrian Army are taking the villages just outside Aleppo before launching an all out assault on those Rats,its been reported those Rebels have recieved new weapons including anti tank missiles and artillery,also cannon mounted on Jeeps,if it was me i would throw three full Armoured Divs into the Battle and finish those Clowns off.
From what I understand the tank is not a forward deployment like it was before.
Its more just an artillery platform.
Its becoming a type of Urban Guerilla battle after bombardment from further afield.
Time is really not that important, while Saudi and Qatar want to muster an opposing force :, it will continue.
When they appear to have exhausted the enthusiasm the real battles will begin.
Sunni orthodox are making enormous concessions to the radical "blood thirsty" element right across the Middle East.
They will never be put back in the box , unless they get totally defeated.
Maybe that realization will start to pan out in favour of Assad soon ! l hope.
