    Syrian Rebels Express Disdain For Obama And Other World Leaders

    Rebel fighters have expressed disdain for US President Barack Obama after he backed away from striking over alleged chemical weapons attacks, saying the world does not care about Syria.

    "America told the world it would bomb Syria and then, when the time came, it got scared," said Abdelqaderi Asasheh, operations chief of the Liwa al-Tawhid brigade in Aleppo.

    The battalion's commander, Abdulaziz Salameh, was even more scathing about the United States.
    While accusing Russia and Syria of "devising a perfect plan to put a stop to an attack by the West," he said "Obama has shown himself not to be a man of honour, without anything to say."

    He added with bravado that "we don't need the attack. We don't need anyone. We count on the help of God, and he will guide us to final victory."

    The rebels don't want our help. Reason number 46465 to stay out of Syria.

    Should one man's opinion condemn millions of others? Not that I think we should be involved in Syria but there probably are many who wish we would intervene before they are slaughtered.

    I feel sorry for Obama. He's really made poor choices over and over in the handling of this situation. The good news, such as it is, is that the Syrians will do the suffering and we won't. From a humanistic POV, that's pretty lame but from a practical perspective, maybe there are better things to invest in besides the MIC, and people closer to home to worry about.

    What was left out of the conversation:

    Damn it . . . we planned the explosions so that they'd perfectly mimic having been done by the Syrian government. You promised!! WTF??
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    Re: Syrian Rebels Express Disdain For Obama And Other World Leaders

    The rebels' criticism is anything but well-justified. They have had 2 1/2 years to provide a manifesto or document outlining a democratic and inclusive government, but have done no such thing. They complain about civilian casualties, yet they engage in exactly the same kind of atrocities Damascus does according to not one UN report, but multiple UN reports. They have communicated nothing concrete about how they would be more accommodative of American interests. When speaking about Israel, they have accused the Assad government of being 'too soft' toward Israel, particularly when the Israeli government struck Syria earlier in the conflict to prevent a weapons transfer to Hezbollah. They have welcome, and continue to embrace, extremists, including elements of Al Qaeda into their ranks.

    Their argument for U.S. support falls flat. Their victory would serve no meaningful U.S. interests. Their argument on humanitarian grounds lacks basis considering their own regular war crimes and crimes against humanity. Their claim of 'moderation' lacks basis given whom they have welcomed into their ranks and their anti-Israel position (a strategic U.S. ally).

    Syria's people are the victims of a brutal civil war. The agreement, if carried out, will make a modest contribution toward improving their safety.
