The real problem is there are no good guys in the Syrian conflict. The sides are terrible.

The real problem is there are no good guys in the Syrian conflict. The sides are terrible.



The “good guys” are the children who are being endangered and murdered by both sides. How about a kindertransport to get the children out of that war zone.

Many of the World War II Kindertransport children were not formally adopted because their parents were still alive when they left. Very few had parents after the war, and sometimes reuniting parents and children after 1945 was problematic. Some children felt abandoned when, in fact, the parents were doing the only thing they could to save their children’s lives.



I’m suggesting we get the children out of harm’s way until the civil war is over—if it ever is. Arab civil wars have a tendency to start, become furious, hibernate, and then start again.



There is no certainty the Arab parents would even put their children on a kindertransport. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG

So Russia is going to up sales to Iran. Which is also providing fighters and arms to the Syrian Regime. So in a way the Arms from Russia are going to end up in the hands of Iranian militants in Syria and what is that going to cause? More deaths of innocent people specially women and children. If Assad just steps DOWN stop bombing villages and populated areas atleast the one that are known to have no rebel activity and let elections take place in his country that would solve a lot of problems. But he remains brutal and a murderer like his dad.

Syria has already scheduled elections in 2014. It's the opposition that's torpedoing them or haven't you noticed?

No Chechen jihadis in Syria, you say?

God sure short-changed you at birth, I say.

Hard core Chechen jihadi elements have fought against Americans in Iraq AND Afghanistan. They're mercenary mountain fighters, paid for and promised the true 'paradise' for their sacrifices by Saudi imams, idiot.

Inspired by other hard core mountain fighters, folks like these:

Kashmiri Rebels Decapitate Captive Norwegian Tourist
Published: August 14, 1995

Kashmiri rebels decapitated a Norwegian tourist they kidnapped a month ago, and they threatened today to kill an American and three Europeans they are holding unless India frees 15 jailed separatist militants.

Women who had gone to fetch water today found the body of the Norwegian, Hans Christian Ostro, near a canal in the Himalayan village of Seer, the police said. The name of the separatist group Al Faran was carved on his chest with a knife.

His head was found later, 40 yards away.

The rebels left a note in Mr. Ostro's shirt pocket threatening to kill the other hostages, the police said.

"We have killed the hostage because the Government has failed to accept our demands," the note said. "In 48 hours, if our demands are not met, the other hostages will meet the same fate."

Did you forget about the list he did for the last election?? Do you remember the qualifications for a candidate to run?? I think when the day was done there was only one candidate able to run, ASSAD. This man cannot be trusted to even put forward an election, let alone run a country.
