Neocons: Fake Christian fanatcs
Zionists : Fake Jewish fanatics
Jahidis t:: Fake Islamic fanatics
All of the above: Lords of propaganda, and their fools.

It seems like a lot of commentators get into fantasies . . . Anyways, I believe the reason the US has been so hesitant to give support is precisely because of the islamist element among the rebels. The whole world is appaled by the butchery and bombing of the present regime. But the intollerance of the islamists is just as ugly in a different way. HUMANITY does not know that all are brothers on the soul level.

In fact, the Government of Assad (Shia Muslim) is secular and they are kind to Christian minorities in Syria. That's why Syrian Christians are still supporting the Assad government. But US & NATO have no eyes to see the situation of Christians in Syria. The Sunni fundamentalist regimes of Saudi, Qatar etc are not secular and they want to remove the secular Assad from power. The end of Christianity in Syria is just begun - Al-Qaeda & US will elemenate the Christians, their history and culture.

I wish that there was a Christian brigade I could join to go and fight these zionists and wahhabis... I`d give it all up cars girls all this american bullshit just to go and fight instead of read and feel sick to my stomach

@ Ruby Renae, absolutely. Syria will now be "cleansed" of all Christians and 2000 year old churches and villages will be bulldozed. The US government supports ethnic cleansing in Israel and now in Syria. We have joined the Al Qaeda Army.

The sole purpose of the Zionist for the last 100 years was the destruction of Christianity. To quote ambassador from Austria to the UK in London, Count Mensdorf "Israel won the war (WW 1), we made it, we thrived on it, we profited from it. It was our supreme revenge on Christianity" It destroyed the morals of Christian Europe, and Germany. It ended the Austrian Monarchy. then they did it again with WW II. All of Christian sites of religious significants in the Middle east is occupied. The birthplace of Christianity, Antioch, is about to be destroyed. Its not just about oil and money

Arab Spring......LOL


Siriro Mashoro 05.09.2013 05:55

They fight alcaeda but in Syria they created al caeda and they are busy funding and arming them to the extent that they want them to rule Syria.


Reza Hashemi 05.09.2013 04:31

Alqaida is the CIA .... wake up people

Please let the world know that Obama is out of control. We, the people of the United States, do NOT want to interfere with the civil war in Syria.
Yes, the use of WMDs is a violation of international law, but so is attacking a sovereign nation without UN approval (unless imminent threat to ones own nation is at hand). Syrian chemical weapons (from either side) are no immidiate threat to the US or our allies, so there is NO legal justification for us to strike Sryia.


Rey Jaso 05.09.2013 03:19

The conflict in Syria is nothing more than a war between natural resources, and religion. The jesuit-puppet politicians in the west and allies carry out the goal of the jesuits in their pursuance of global domination killing muslims and christians. This has always been their goal since the inception of the Company of Jesus aka The Society of Jesus, which has nothing to do with Jesus.


william 05.09.2013 02:56

Obama is the Anti Christ, no birth cirtificate
to prove who he really is and no compassion
for those who die in the Middle East.
The only hope for this World is through GOD when he returns with his SON.
The Islamists can be defeated but action needs to be done now with those countries who have the power to do so. All serving soldiers and military men who are watching
there Government support the rebels and
Islamists must wonder what is going on.


Dimitri 05.09.2013 01:15

US is build on upon people's insatiable desire to believe.
US utilizes that by giving them messages such as 'world peace', 'saving lives', blah, blah, blah. If needed pays them cash.
