    "The Americans can shoot their missiles but they'll get nowhere. Our real enemy is over there, on the ground – Al-Qaeda!" a veteran governmental soldier said.

    “How can it be that America is going to fight us, on the side of Al-Qaeda?” a young Syrian army commander wondered. “How can America be against a secular country and for Islamists, who kill their prisoners and dump their bodies in a well?"

    The US has been fighting on the side of Muslims at least since the Clinton era, going so far as refusing to call a Muslim terrorist a Muslim or a terrorist.

    This President will certainly not help Christians.

    Syria is definately a no win situation no matter what we do. If we take side we either will be supporting a dictator who doesn't give a darn about his people and if we support the rebels, it will be supporting AQ or their backers or some fringe group of them and if not AQ, some who want an Islamic Republic. Yes there are some who want a secular democracy, but they are far from organized and do not have the weapons the others factions do.

    This is one time where doing nothing may be the best and probably the only sane option available.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Both Pelosi and Kerry have stated in the past that Assad is someone we can work with. At any rate he is a lesser of two evils.

    There you go again.

    President Bashar al-Assad did not personally order last month's chemical weapons attack near Damascus that has triggered calls for US military intervention, and blocked numerous requests from his military commanders to use chemical weapons against regime opponents in recent months, a German newspaper has reported , citing unidentified, high-level national security sources.

    Syria chemical weapons attack not ordered by Assad, says German press | World news | theguardian.com
    I've always found unidentified, high-level national security sources to be honest.

    I have a perfect solution! Since we don't like the current regime (Assad) , and since we don't like the alternative (al-Qaeda linked fighters), the US should just go in and wipe everything out and establish an american colony. That will solve everything! I mean that's what we are heading for anyways.

    Assad is no different from Sadaam or Mubarak in that they all rule/ruled with an iron fist from a minority base without religious basis in a secular manner and protected religious minorities within their borders provided those religious minorities did not disrupt the regime or target others. It is why America was able to support such terrible people at various times throughout the last half-century and why there's trouble in their countries when America abandons support for them. Without the savage dictator holding down the religious zealots, all hell is breaking loose in these countries as the fanatics slaughter each other in the name of a loving, peaceful god.

    For this reason, if for no other, America should keep it's military as far away as possible while they fight it out amongst themselves - you will get no credit for intervening and you will get all of the blame for anything that goes wrong.

    He's also trying to fight back against islamic terrorists trying to remove him from power. Context, it's important. Furthermore he didn't order the attack.
