In the photo, if those are the alleged 'Syrian Rebels' they are waving the AL QUEDA flag.
So much for consistency in the war on terror.
First the Taliban is our enemy, then it isn't.
First Hamas is a terror group, then it's ok, because they are 'Palestinians.'
Next, we will be told Al Queda is not our enemy.
Fact is, fundamentally, Islam is the enemy. George Bush lied about it being a kind and peaceful religion.
The so called "rebels" who are actually a fraction of Al Qaeda are not going to negotiate a peace agreement because terrorists never do. The same is true for Hamas and Fatah, but the whole World is asking Israel to "negotiate"??!! The only thing you can negotiate with a terrorist is if you want to be beheaded or to be rocketed!
I am sick and tired of reading news that don't make any sense at all. If it sounds like propaganda, it is propaganda. If the Russians want to stop the "pseudo rebels" they will have to "negotiate" with Obama, the new leader of the Muslim World.
There is only one way Assad is leaving power, and that's feet first. Assad will go the way of Gaddafi (and we all know how that turned out) and a radical Islamic regime will magically take over, all with the smiling approval of Mr. Obama. Given what has happened now in Libya, Egypt, Syria, and Algeria, not to mention what's about to happen in Jordan, I'm really beginning to believe that Obama sees nothing wrong with radical Islamic regimes. And if that means the end of Israel, Obama is probably thinking, "Hey, you have to break a few eggs to make an omlette." The man disgusts me.
The longer the fighting goes on in Syria the better. Let them fight their own war and leave us out of it. There has to be fighting in the Middle East or the radicals aren't happy. Killing is in their blood and it won't end anytime soon. The longer it goes, the weaker then become and the more Barky Boy has to focus over there and not on destroying the US.
I always had my suspicions but Dear leader's embrace of radical islam was solidified for me when he was praising the begining of the "arab spring" and praising the people who were demonstrating, yet he ignored the people of Iran who were being shot and bleeding to death on the streets of Tehran. The pos is the precursor of the antichrist.
Did anyone actually expect that the hajis in Syria want anything but a Sharia-compliant state? Peace in any form...including a hudna with infidels is out of the question. Sharia and revenge against the Alawites, Christians, Druze and Kurds who supported al-Assad is their goal. After that the jihad will switch to Israel, Jordan, Europe and any US base still left in the ME.
Wise up people. The FSA is no friend to anyone, except their fellow Islamic Nazis. They want to achive al-Banna and Qutuub's wet dream of a new Khalifa. That's all they want.
After that its jihad and jihad and jihad, until none but Allah is worshipped.
Well, let us be serious here, Russia is certainly as much an honest broker as the US and NATO, which is to say they are all working in their perceived national interests. The difference is that unlike the US, Britain and France, Russia is under no illusions (delusions?) about what is happening in Syria and the likely outcome.
There's no way this will end well, or end soon. Even if Assad goes now, the sectarian fighting will go on because both Saudis and Iran know that the eventual 'loser' will face the next 'Arab Spring'.
Meanwhile, we hear a lot about the rebels, but no-one in the corrupt MSM is bothered about the fate of the Christians. It is heartbreaking.
And meanwhile, there's this: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/saudi-police-storm-home-and-arrest-41-people-for-plotting-to-celebrate-christmas/
Just read your post, you make a very good point about Russia. I'd just add that they've not been exactly wimpy when dealing with muslim 'uprisings' in their own country - and the Syrian rebels know that full well.
I can't help thinking that their rejection of Putin's 'hand of peace' could eventually lead to an open military engagement of Russia on Assad's side. After all, Russia is siding with Iran already.
Not going to end well.
This is going to be a mess no matter which way it comes out. I wouldn't trust the Russians either, but I sure as heck don't trust the rebels. Let them work it out for themselves except the Christians get caught in the middle. What a mess.
The trail of misery and chaos that the thug in the WH leaves is mind boggling. His mess is ongoing. How can people be so stupid as to vote for the likes of bo and still know how to breath on their own????
They've been well conditioned... and all that "free stuff" is a good indicator of the intelligence of much of the liberal voting base. Sigh.
Wow. Sounds like these guys understand what negotiating and winning is all about. I think our GOP could take a page out of their book. Not that I agree with WHAT they are doing, it just shows what we should be doing once we have the upper hand. HMMM....wonder if our elite GOP leaders have a clue how this works???
