What a waste of time .. what a bunch of stupid 'uber-educated' asses..!!

Johnathan Freelander from Da'Guardian waves in front of our faces a photo of un unshaved freedom fighter carrying a baby ... allegedly a new orphan addition to the long list ... and the s.o.b. questions 'why nobody condemns Syria... or rather Assad Jr. and his gang of assassins'

Johnathan we are beyond condemnation... it's about time to start doing ... rather than writing and talking intelligently... around a table with coffee, pastry and Malboro cigarettes..

Assad Jr. has to be stopped. Period.

What..?? He has the support of who..?? Hu Jintao and Putin..??

Well, if we put our hearts on it .... we can have Hu Jintao even send a batallion of Chinese Commandoes to evict fckkn Assad.

Simply,... YOU HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS..!!
Kapisch... Johnathan... WHERE IT HURTS..!!

And where does it hurt in Tiananmen..??
In their pockets ..!!

A boycott and a warning that if China doesn't respect world patents ... no more business, will change even the sense of the clock movements in China..

The Russkies are even easier and softer to pressure...

So recaping... The question is not why nobody condemns the killings in Syria, the question is .... why the world community is not doing what it has to be done ... to stop the killings..??

One, the protest started from day one. The Western media was and remains filled with anti-Asad stories. US/Saudi et al coalition has supplied the rebels with weapons, intelligence, fighters and money. The push for an Iraq redux is pushed by those who supported Bush 2 and Cheney. But all of the deaths were not just by the Syrian regime. The rebels have claimed their share of the death and destruction. What seems to be quickly set aside is that our "freedom fighters" look like the same jihadists we created in Afghanistan forty years ago. Their religious fanaticism marks them out to be just the "new" enemy we will need to maintain our defense expenditures well into the future.

Is this article supposed to be a joke??? The colony of israel is a terrorist that constantly creates war with all those around it and this is well known.Israel is the largest abuser of human rights on the planet and this is also well known.Israel is behind the murders of countless people all over the world not to mention the wars it creates constantly.To compare the terrorist colony of israel and its illegal murderous war mongering actions with the Syrian government is disgusting.The Syrian government is fighting a terrorist proxie force of arabs from many different countries which are armed and funded by the american government and israel through the dictatorships of qatar,bahrain,saudi arabia,uae,jordan,turkey,etc etc.Israel is a world wide supporter of terrorism and this is well known.The entire so called "arab spring" was a created event created by the american government and israel as a pretext to try and overthrow popular governments and install weak puppet governments that could be controlled by the american government and israel.

Among the Snipers of Aleppo
By BENJAMIN HALL

It is hard to pick the rebels apart from those who seek to take advantage of the chaos to transform Syria into a Shariah-based fundamentalist state. In Aleppo, I heard Salafi jihadists talk of slaying the minority Alawites, and call for both the immediate support of America, and its immediate demise. These extremist groups are getting weapons from Saudi Arabia and Qatar already; they are not groups that the West would choose to arm. Compared with them, it is not clear that Mr. Assad is the bigger foe.

Good points. From the beginning, the West has instigated, supported and armed this "uprising", in an attempt to fulfill their "regime change" agenda. They are just now starting to realize that they have been supporting and arming their own worst enemies

For the purpose of investigating dog's habits ... I trust my scientific observations rather than a proverb written by what could be a half ass Jew...

I noticed that Lobo, my dog ... he likes to pee at exactly the same spot that he peeed (is this the way to write it) on our previous outing..

You mug, your wages for sin have become
interim, because,
The character of a slug that you represent
In a most improper way is a potent
Possibility to be eaten by my chooks.
