I had visited Iraq twice.
Once under the contagerous criminal Saddham's regime.
But in spite of his bedfeloows and embedded Journalists there were many Jews; Christians and Hindus.
After his death i made a short trip.
I have no chance to chat with those Christians ; jews and Hindus.
They were not there.
Gone with the wind

Ramafuchs, this will be the same case with Syria unfortunately.
The thing I don't get is America one day wants to fight the war on terror than the next day they are friends with the free Syrian army.. Who are clearly terrorist. Contradincal don't you think.
Iraq is in a much worse stituation now than under saddam, same goes to Egypt. You will now be lucky to find over 6000 christains in iraq.
My dad told me before the Assad came into power they where referred to as pigs in the streets and when walking in the streets they always had to walk with there head down..
It Is very disappointing what is happening in Syria, hopefully the government will be able to capture and removal all the torroriest soon.

I was in israel but not in Syria.
As an Indian born German citizen I wish both countries to find a solution.

Like wise.. It's a shame we don't learn from history.. But what really gets me pissed off is the media lies about Assad... Syria was such a piece ful country.. You never heard about suicide bombings wtf.. Now fathers in Saudi Arabia are auctioning there sons to be suicide bombers in Syria... The media doesn't show the pro Assad PEACEFUL protest.. The media doesn't show the protest held by the terrorist hunging a christain with there guns waving in air..
The media does show protest ( in iraq) claiming this is Syria.. It's all lies after lies.. Propaganda at its best.. The only thing I can do is pray for all the innocent people who have been killed and for the suituation to get better

Syria was such a peaceful country as long as everyone obeyed your hero Assad!! They got sick and tired of it!! Hey dummy! It started out with bottles and rocks!! The your hero Assad used Rockets, granades, tanks, aircraft? Get real and get a clue!! 20,000 plus of his own people murdered at the hands of your hero Assad! 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 nonsense. The Syrian people have no 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., NATO, 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 Olivia Crumwell and lap dog Syrian are and not worried one iota!! They are Paid Assad Sock Puppet! Period!
China, Venezuela and Iran supports Syria and guess what? There is NO freedom in any of those countries either!

Educated Folks Only! I always find these imbecilic egotistical nutjobs give themselves names like scumbag LYING nutjobs "Reality is always best"; "Olivia Crumwell"; "The Professor'; "Truth"; The Prophet"; "Truth Seeker"; "The Observer" are deranged uneducated low IQ Brainwashed Low Life Nut Cases! They are on some big huge ego trip all the time and think nobody notices their ignorance! It's obvious the clowns have never had any formal education what-so-ever but like to think they have! Everything they post is always 180 degrees off what a normal educated person would think, believe and understand! There is never any rational thinking and researching facts is out of the question as it never crosses their little pea brain in their little world of make believe! It's a sad situation as these clowns go around making themselves look like complete fools and imbeciles every time they post something! Sad!! Very SAD!
