Maybe the West should stop backing AlQaeda rebels?

Taken from the Syrian army?. The Russians must stop arming the Syrian army if some of the rockets could be easily taken by the rebels.

What's all the fuss about? There were more than enough SAMs looted from Libyan arsenals to down half the 747s in service. Just a tad late to be worrying about Syrian SAMs.

What does that comment have to do with the article? Who gave the missiles to Assad, do you even know?

Libya, yet another idiotic Western backed fiasco! Better pray that those AlQaeda clowns don't start shooting down civilian aircraft with those SAMs.
