    Re: Who Do You Support in the Syrian Civil War?

    I'm not sure I support any one organization because I haven't done nearly enough research to form an opinion. In that part of the world, violence and irrationality have a hold over the society so it's hard for me to support anything except individual humans who don't want to use violence to impose their will on others.

    I'll support the Children, the Christians and other minority religions, and the women that want no part of the fighting and are not involved. Their decision on who they prefer to go with.

    That should cut out most of the outside players.....which means the Saud's plans get ruined and they will need to find another way.

    The way I see it, Assad has done a remarkable job stabilizing Syria with long term continuing intervention by the Mossad, CIA, Saudi Arabia, France and who knows who else. This is not new. He helped the USA by providing refuge for 20% of the Iraqi population during our War of Terror against Iraq. He has moderated Hesbollah, kept the peace (not easy, take a good look at Iraq), stabilized Lebanon, kept the big OIL sharks at bay and who knows what else. He gives all appearances of being a great and moderate leader in an area of the World that needs just that. We should be supporting him wholeheartedly.

    I support US Media outlets that properly ignore Syria and stop making it some kind of foster child in need.

    Assad has every right to fight and kill anyone whom is allied with Al-Qaeda. We used to have the same belief but then our politicians bowed down to Defense Contractor lobbyists.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    I meant that the Al-Qaeda aligned rebels and the FSA have been killing each other. And Assad doesnt have the right to do FA , no one voted for him.

    Re: Who Do You Support in the Syrian Civil War?

    I chose "other" - I support the moderate rebels that compose the Free Syrian Army, but the organization itself is too decentralized to be considered a serious obstacle to the rising Islamist influence. If we do continue our support for the rebels, we should work with moderate rebel leaders to establish a unitary, secular military structure that will facilitate the transfer of aid to rebel brigades and show that the moderate rebellion has just as much potential as the jihadists.

    If not, the FSA is the next best choice.
