    Anyone who supports the rebels supports Al-Qaeda.

    Free Syrian Army have been Decimated by al Qaeda which the Islamic front in reality is a part of are at the very least work with.

    In reality the choice comes down to either the Syrian government or al Qaeda, and the Syrian people choose the government over al Qaeda as there are millions of Christian and Shia Syrians who al Qaeda does not like.

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

    As much as i hate to say this i see no way for the "FSA" to win. I see no way of them winning. I support the protests full heatedly in the beginning of the Arab Spring and i supported much of their democratic and secular demands, i also supported much of the FSA in the beginning of the conflict as well. But once the war broke out and the revolution turned into more of a secular conflict and the FSA started to align itself with jihadist and Islamic elements i can no longer back them. Also once the FSA started to loose out to the Islamic front and Al Nursa and the rebels starting fighting each other the only people i can back is Assad. He is 1.)secular and 2.)can promise stablility and 3.)if the "rebels" when we can only look to this conflict dragging on with interebel factions fighting each other. 4.)the rebels are now being used as a proxy against Syria,
    These are the reasons why i voted the way i did

    Nobody. Whoever wins there, heads will roll.

    The FSA never really existed, or so I think... they got hijacked by islamists very early on.
    Assad is, at the very least, a secular dictator (well, I say secular but he is pro-alawites and gave alawites some more rights than others but at least he didn't enforce religious law, but secular law.). And props to him, the economy is Syria did grow during his time, you know, until the war. But if he wins... heads will roll. I have no doubt he has no legitimacy left since he did do crimes against humanity. Not the whole bio weapons thing, that was a joke, but there were surely massacres and executions... he needs to go.
    The islamists... you can't possibly side with them, they're like... bad.

    So nobody is good there.

    Not "we" but Obama. He was on Al Qaeda's side.

    None, that country is just going to sink deeper in disorder and violence.
