Like, really? Get real.
Syria is a Sunni Muslim majority state, ruled by a small Alawite elite led by Assad, the people are going to rebel again sooner or later, even if the war ends now, that's just reality.
LOL

The Sunni 'majority' you speak of counts Kurds, Sufis and others not predisposed to a bloody revolution. Add the 10% Christian population and your argument is made of straw.

A minority of Sunni extremists, of which many are foreigners, are driving this civil war in order to impose their will on a composite majority of Sunnis, Shiites and Christians. If it weren't for them and the nations driving them, Syria would have accepted the Geneva plan long ago.

'Get real', bwahaahaa. You're a babe in the woods.

Look at the anti-democratic sources driving this so-called 'democratic' revolution and maybe that dim lightbulb in your head will begin to flicker:

Wahhabism, the leading stream of Islam in Sunni Saudi Arabia, is extremely anti-Shiite, since certain Shiite practices conflict with Wahhabi Islamic practice. Shiites, who constitute 10-15 percent of the Saudi population, have suffered greatly under Saudi rule. Depredations have included killings, arbitrary arrests, job discrimination, and forbidding of their religious ceremonies.

yes i told you Assad is a better solution because at least the country was in check and relative peace agreement with other countries.
Then i asked you if you think Assad is to be removed (and you are not even Syrian so technically you have no say) who would be fit to replace him ?
I'm still waiting for your answer
Let me make it simple:
You have a vehicule that has used tires. It can still run for a few thousand kms but needs replacement. You want to change the tires, i ask you which tires are you going to replace the old ones with and you have no new tires to offer.
Then i say to you let's carry on with the old ones until you find new ones, but you prefer to remove the used tires anyway and the vehicule stays ditched.
Well done.
Assad is a better solution indeed he has been coming up with solutions to kill the majority slowly until there is no Sunni Muslims. I have already pointed out that I am a Sunni Muslim o it doesnt matter whether I am Syrian or not those kind of racist, nationalistic ideologies r ur so keep them to urself thank and plus r u Syrian?
Ur Not waiting for my answer ur jut COMMENTING for the SAKE OF commenting I have already given u the answer AGAIN AND AGAIN that even though there r few contenders it is best that FAIR elections takes place after Assads head has been flushed down the toilet so the PEOPLE CAN CHOOSE who they want plz stop dwelling on ur ONLY silly little point u make again and again about DUUHHHH one leader is there DUUUHHHHH. LOL u contradict urself in ur own example if u have old tyres u r affecting the proper function of the CAR and cos they r OLD tyres and decide to give up then the CAR wudnt work at all but there r NEW tyres but I just want to CHOOSE the right and the best brand but after CHOOSING and REPLACING them with new tyres the CAR will run INDEFINITELY FOR a ver y long time cos they r NEW TYRES.

You'll have to come up with something better when you say Assad is out to kill all sunnis.
Speaking of contradictions, you want fair elections like in Saudi Arabia, like in Bahrein, Qatar ?
You want free elections and yet you don't want democracy ?
What the hell does that mean, a sunni trick ?

Tsar Nicholas shot peaceful protesters in 1905, then gradually began submitting to reforms but a warring Germany intervened to destabilize Russia by aiding Lenin's repatriation, which lead to the Bolshevik revolution and 70 years of communist rule.

Is that your goal? 70 years of taliban-style rule for Syria?

Evolution to parliamentary rule is infinitely preferable to revolution to....a worst case scenario.

Stay out of this. Your sophomoric opinions aren't worth the bandwidth required to post them.

Indeed, same old fake threats from Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, and the true real unprovoked border violations, land occupation, illegal fly overs, agressive military attacks from Israel onto neighbouring countries.
Same old, same old...
