The Russians still support Assad? Sad

everyone seems to forget about the 2 kilo of sarin the Turkish siezed from a house on the border that belonged to the FSA, or the uploads of A Nusra showing their chemical weapons plant in Syria, or the fact that they went on record saying they would use chemical weapons against the regime and were caught doing so???

Many comments about weapons, missiles BUT there are thousands of people, innocent people, women, kids, who have already suffered a lot, and would the most,
of course not to say about other consequences.
I fully agree with Billy Bennet Castel that
"unity of the (people) of all nations will be enough to bring this insanity to an end".

Would be terrible if those chemical weapons were hit by a cruise missiles and thousands off Al Qaeda and Al Nusra terrorists were killed just as they were all dreaming off marching on Damascus.Assad could then thank the USA for kiilling the rebels for him.

Seriously, with governments like the UK and USA, what good are they?

Could we be any worse off with Anarchy, here in America? Anarchy is a democracy of one.

The UK, France & US gov'ts are going nuts! In 2003, the French tried desperately to ward off invasion of Iraq.

WTF is going on?

Syria has enough conventional weapons to defeat the motley crew of rebels made up off 'Alqieada' and their Zionist masters. Increasingly the alleged gas appears to be' made in Zion'. After those 3 buildings collapse on its own footprint, few sensible and intelligent folks will believe the western warmongers. They are bankrupt and need a war. This time they will be chewing more than they can eat. It is time for Russia and China to put aside their differences and warn these adventurers to pull their heads in.

US has to fabricate "justification of war" (Casus belli) against one after another of the enemies of the Israeli regime.

Not to mention the Yakhont anti-ship missle for which the Russians supplied an upgraded version to Syria in May 2013. Anything in the water near Cyprus or east of it could easily become scrap metal at the bottom of the sea. Maybe this is the real reason the US/Israelis/KSA are going after Syria.
