    That's true. But I was taking issue with your comment that Israel unintentionally targets civilians. In the same Lebanon, in 2006, they destroyed thousands of civilian apartments, killed 1,200 civilians, created another 3/4 of a million refugees, bombed bridges, dams, airports, roadways, and in so doing, destroyed 3 billion dollars worth of non military civilian infrastructure. At any rate, Assad in Syria is preferred to an Islamic State in Syria.

    If you don't find him evil it's due to your ridiculously immoral standards and due to the fact that you yourself are a promoter of evil.
    I haven't promoted any evil. And you have no evidence that president Assad is gassing people on the streets.

    Right because Assad's use of chemical warfare against civilians is a myth spread by Washington, it's all the US fault eh?
    And you my friend are evil incarnate, you never waste an opportunity to promote anything that is wrong on this planet.
    Funny that you call him 'president' though, I had the feeling those needed to be elected.

    Lol. What are you a preacher or something. We had a SCOTUS pick a president, I suppose they can come variously. Why would you call somebody your friend that you believe to be "evil incarnate"? And when do I promote everything wrong on this planet?

    Assad is president of Syria, like it or not.

    Most Syrians back President Assad, but you'd never know from western media

    Then again a regime not led by a sociopath would be more capable of consolidating power over the country, thus making it harder for groups like Isis to take root. There was no ISIS when Iraq was a parliamentary democracy back in the 1950s.

    In terms of finding a long term solution what one needs to do is look at parts of the world that where previously marred by war between competing fundamentalisms, and look and how these issues where solved. If you take Switzerland for example (which a few hundreds years ago had frequent civil wars between different sects) this problems were solved by a form of government that actually represented people and allowed them to resolve their grevences democratically. This in tern allowed the country to develop, which improved education and solved the issue of fundementalism.

    People will of course say that Switzerland is Switzerland and Syria is Syria, but we have to ask why both countries are the way they are, and remember that we were pretty similar not too long ago.

    Then why would he not hold a presidential election, allowing him to garner more support from the international community?

    Very difficult to hold elections, with any sense of legitimacy, when your country is torn apart in a civil war, a war against terrorism, in a country that's nearly fractured in thirds with different powers in control, and foreign fighters supported by neighboring Arab States as well as Western powers pushing for "regime change" and control of the country, don't ya think??

    Anyway, I propose calling users that pretend to be from another location just so as they can propagate their polar positions of that locations from there as - Salties (i.e., after the movie Salt).
