i wonder, what is the reason behind those sanctions against syrian regime... while it's apears to be that the opposite side (the rebels) are the ones who hates U.S and the Uropean countries the most, and happy while holding al qaeda flag in eleppo....
while al asad regime seems to be the one who is the allied one to those western countries.
i dont understand this equation.
maybe somebody could explaine it to me!!!!
