... i will try to keep religion out of this as much as i can. but it's silly to ignore the differences and the reasons for the civil war that's been going on for 2.5 years. i was reading up on the previous uprising against the assad government back in the late 70's by muslim brotherhood. same thing happened then, the 12% of alawites in syria are controlling the country and killing any civillian who revolts. personally i think it's revolting, and i will be doing something about it now that i've got a few contacts in syria. people in syria, especially the pro-assad-fuckheads are saying foreign troops/soldiers are making it worse. how the fuck can assad sleep at night knowing he's killing his own children, sunni, shiate or not, human is human. from what i gather, i see the division as follows: - iran and israel are the only ones backing the assad governement, surprised? don't be. - saudi, turkey, pakistan and lebanon are the only ones sending their troops to fight in syria. - everyone gives america shit for not intervening yet, but i think they don't have to. - because when they do, everyone gets mad at them for intervening. - the day america lets go of its jewish lobbies in the whitehouse, the world will be a better place. mock me all you want, but this shit hits closer to home considering all the prophecies about it. syriasly, this shit needs to stop.
