    Alright alright, you're a conspiracy fanatic. Okay then.
    On the contrary. I recognize the Capitalist model regarding profit/loss and apparently you do not.

    To automatically ignore something from the mainstream media is pretty much just as bad as automatically believing everything you hear from the mainstream media.
    Blind dissent is as foolish as blind patriotism.

    I agree, there is absolutely nothing to be gained in Syria.

    There apparently are many Syrians who disagree with you on that. But oh well.
    Heya Wraith. Maybe this will shed some light on the subject.

    I'm not really sure what exact point you wanted to make.

    UPDATE 1-Syrian rebel leader says US-Russian deal a blow to uprising | Reuters
    Heya Monte that's not all they did either.....plus the Rebels/ Terrorists wouldn't listen to us.. I think the FSA and SNC are a bit upset that now most know they are not the Ruling Government of Syria and that Assad is. That the UN and all are recognizing Assad and not the So called Rebels/ Terrorists of the FSA and SNC.

    Syrian opposition elects moderate Islamist as prime minister

    The opposition Syrian National Coalition elected a moderate Islamist as provisional prime minister on Saturday, hoping to avoid being sidelined as world powers renew diplomatic efforts to end the civil war.

    Coalition sources said the decision to proceed with naming a provisional government went ahead despite opposition from the United States, which hopes to convene, along with Russia, a peace conference in Geneva that could come up with a transitional administration.

    That follows a deal between Russia and the United States over President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons arsenal that could lead to efforts towards a wider settlement of the two-and-a-half year conflict.

    Tumeh said his priority would be restoring order to areas of Syria no longer controlled by Assad.

    Tumeh addressed coalition members as "comrades on the path to freedom," and indicated that the SNC would not compromise on a deal that could keep Assad in power.

    In a closed door briefing, Tumeh told the coalition that the provisional government would operate from northern Syria, members present told Reuters.

    It will be a task fraught with risk, with al Qaeda-linked militants, with a significant presence in the north, ideologically opposed to moderates such as Tumeh, who has preached tolerance and democratic change during a long political career.

    Tumeh was imprisoned from 2007 to 2010 along with 11 opposition members who had demanded that Assad embark on democratic change in a country ruled by his family since 1970.....snip~

    I don't ignore anything. I double check it. If you can spot an untruth, the real truth is often the opposite because that is how untruths function.

    From what I understand US arms to the opposition have yet to arrive. When they do that can improve the rebels' war efforts. That and not being gassed has to count for something.

    The U.S. has been training the Rebels, and by extentions Al-Qaeda, for nearly 2 years.

    The odds are better than 50/50 that it was the rebels that used the gas. You have framed a presumption as a fact. Truth/untruth.
