    Nah. This is their show. We're just facilitators.

    Oh yeah.....with a little help from our friends. Which let them handle it. Meaning France the Brits, Saudi and Qatar. Course then the Rebels and Assad, and his backers.

    Time to kick the shoes off.....sit back a spell. They'll all come back now. Don't you worry.

    They'll be fine. This is an insurgency with popular support.

    Nah! I've seen posts of yours before. If they all write themselves, you are indeed fortunate!, just being able to sit there and read them! Do they ever surprise you? :

    Sorry, but no. The Sunnis in Syria are an oppressed majority, like the Shia in Iraq were. They are fighting to free themselves from oppression.

    Unfortunately the Christians inside Syria disagree, and the Sunni Rebels do not even have the backing of all their own Sunni and Muslim Syrians.

    Again.....the reason with the backing of the MB and the Salafis. Is that they are thought to be able to do Business with the West. There is no guarantee and there never was.

    I could not care less whether they can do business with the West. (Although I think they can.) In geopolitical terms, it doesn't matter what the Christians think. I'm confident the rebels have the backing of Sunni Syrians, otherwise the rebellion would not have grown.

    Not to difficult for it to have grown while bringing in Sunni Fighters from other countries. Not counting AQ. Nor for Al Nusra to gain support like they have over most of the FSA. Which still doesn't change the facts about those Syrian Christians either.

    I would think that when half of the country, of ones own people not siding with their so called opposition and doing what they can to not get caught in the middle. Speaks volumes.

    Like Israel said.....expect a long drawn out civil war. Plus now the French today agreed with us and said that the UN putting up a No Fly Zone. Wont be happening.

    I'm content to await the outcome. Supporting the rebels is the right thing to do and the smart thing to do.
