By giving recognition to a body that has not been elected by the Syrian People is not Democracy! Also where does it stop if the west and USA does not like a government? more regime change. China and Russia opposed this policy and they should well do so as their are bodies of internal opposition to their governments. The USA are supporting some of these bodies which Russia recently discovered. Russia and China will protect their system of government so if this model of regime change is adopted worldwide it will lead to World War 3 within the next 2 years. Russia and China will not go to war over Syria but they will not tolerate externl interferenec in their affairs
where they have their own interests. Beware USA and UK and others who support such a model for regime change it will lead to the destruction of us all!

CIA’s al-Qaeda Mercenaries Threaten to Execute Journalist in Syria
http://www.infowars.com/cias-al-qaeda-mercena...

The CIA’s mercenaries in Syria are threatening to kill a Russian journalist unless a $50 million ransom is met by December 13. Word of the deadline arrives as the Obama administration officially recognizes the Free Syrian Army (FSA) as a “legitimate representative” of the Syrian people.

Anhar Kochneva, a reporter with Russian and Ukrainian dual nationality, was kidnapped by the FSA in October outside the city of Homs. According to Darya Mitina, deputy chairman of the Committee of Solidarity with people of Libya and Syria, Kochneva received threats from FSA mercenaries numerous times in response to her pro-Assad position. She also criticized Western media for conducting a media war against the al-Assad regime and distorting the situation in Syria.

On November 28, a video surfaced showing the Ukrainian journalist. Kochneva said she had entered the country with fake credentials and acted as a Russian spy by translating exchanges between Syrian and Russian government forces, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. The CPJ said Kochneva’s confession was coerced.
The organization ranks Syria as the most dangerous place in the world for journalists. No less than 27 journalists have have been killed while covering the Syrian conflict since November.

Human rights organizations have accused the FSA of committing numerous abuses, including “kidnapping, detention, and torture of security force members, government supporters, and people identified as members of pro-government militias, called shabeeha,” Human Rights Watch reported in March.

Despite these human rights abuses, the Obama administration on Tuesday announced formal U.S. recognition of the Syrian opposition coalition, calling it the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.

“We made a decision that the Syrian opposition coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the Syrian population,” Obama said, according to the CIA propaganda outfit, Voice of America.

“Recognition is nice, but we need real support,” said Walid al-Bunni, of the newly formed Syrian National Coalition, as a “Friends of Syria” conference began in the Moroccan city of Marrakech.

The Syrian National Coalition is demanding military support for the al-Qaeda mercenaries fighting against the Syrian regime.

The biggest scam right now is the physical cliff. Obama is asking for 1.6 trillion and the majority of the money is going to spending, not deficit reduction. I presume he wants to create another credit rating debacle. The republican leadership of course is fighting as hard as they can....wink wink.

I thought the US was done sticking its' nose in other people's business with its' arrogance.

It's disturbing to see how people can completely disconnect the concepts from "their guy" and as long as he "wins" it doesn't matter what he does.

It's actually a serious mental problem.
