criminals usa, turkey, saudi arabia should halt transport for these rebels. If they would have no weapon, they would be more easy to make negotiations and to calm.

USA and the rest of this fellowship must stop to arm these rebels, who don´t know what they want just like in every war. Endeffect is always the same: nobody knows what was the real reason. War is really the most stupid, brutal, criminal, primitive tool to solve problems.
Is Assad really such probvlem? He is not responsible for everything, what wrong is. There are US sanctions. He should talk with these rebels and make good social system.

STOP THE CRIMINAL USA BS!! Did you hear about your hero Assad murdering 20,000 plus of his own people? Do you see very many Syrians from Syria Posting?? That's because Assad has a short leash on everyone!! Funny how you clowns live in a country that grants you all the freedom in the world to write your ignorant nonsense. The Syrian people have ver little freedom so what do you clowns do? You stand up for a ruthless Assad Dictator!! And to top it off, somehow Israel and West are involved. The U.S., amazingly U.N., The Arab League and the list goes on and on have condemned ASSAD. Most civilized countries have elections so when you have brutal Dictators like China, Syria, and Iran there is no way to get rid of the tyrants other than by force!! The people are stuck with their ruthless Dictators their whole lives and then when that clown passes, daddy appoints another ruthless Dictator and this is an endless cycle! It's like a nightmare that will not go away!! I don't blame the people one bit!! Folks! Ask yourself why the vICT Assadomite hiding out in the U.S. and not in Syria helping Assad with the murdering of his own people!! He's a paid filthy disgusting lying Paid Assad Sock Puppet! Period!
China, Venezuela and Iran supports Syria and guess what? There is NO freedom in any of those countries either!

What's the world going to do, not just Israel and Jews you clowns hate so much if Iran gives a nuke to terrorists scumbags! And when those terrorists get a nuke from Iran and set it off in Poland and you, KAROL, will be flying up in burst of flames screaming "LONG LIVE PRESIDENT MACHMOOD AHMADINNERJACKET!! Iran is the only country since Nazi germany that actually threatened to wipe out another country (Israel) FURHTERMORE, Stop trying to portray Iran to look like a peace loving nation DUMMY!! Do some thinking for a change clown!! Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has been one of the world’s most active sponsors of terrorism. Tehran has armed, trained, financed, inspired, organized, and otherwise supported dozens of violent groups over the years. Iran has backed not only groups in its Persian Gulf neighborhood, but also terrorists and radicals in Lebanon, the Palestinian territories, Bosnia, the Philippines, and elsewhere. This support remains strong even today as Iran is tied to an array of radical groups in Iraq. Iran has publically Threatened Preemptive Strikes Against Israel and United States!! To sit there and not think for one minute that Iran would not pass on nuclear technology to terrorists, you'd have to be brain dead!!
No one can guarantee this will not happen, not even you! So do we gamble like we did Hitler and Nazi Party and presume they want to live in peace or do we wait and hope we all don't wake up someday to find terrorists using nukes supplied to them by Iran! Many countries including Pakistan and Israel have had nukes for decades and have never threatened publically the destruction of another country. The Six Day War started with threats and movement of troops to all the borders surrounding Israel!! Should Israel have waited for her destruction. NO! And neither should any other country!!

You know that thing they do in movies when someone sees something bad happening right before their eyes? The big slowed-down, deep "noooooooooooooooooooo "? I'm guessing this the reaction of everyone who reads your post :-)
