Urban warfare is difficult to fight against no matter how technically advanced you are because you cant tell which are your citizens and which are insurgents. No army in history has beaten an insurgency unless they've massacred everyone like the Mongols or Romans used to do.
Um the American civil war?

Guys can we have a Middle East thread that doesn't derail into how evil the American government is? :P

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

It is kind of a predictable outcome.... but it gets boring.

Too bad people can't just sit down and talk out problems and differences. Meeting rooms have no use!

If the suggested meeting room was set on truly neutral ground, with serious safety guarantees for both parties, then maybe they’d attend.

Last I’ve heard were Russians inviting rebels to talks with Assad’s people - in Russia. No wonder they declined.

this is my cousin home, they randomly shelled the city today (one of the bombs fell on his house) in revenge for an operation that the FSA made against a military base
and in the media they said that the army is bombing the bases of the terrorists, and it's plain lies, as my cousin is more of a nerd than a fighter and he have nothing to do with the FSA and he still lives there

I know right?! No one else could've brainstormed such an idea :o Okay I'm totally joshing.

The problem I see is that there's always 'sides', no one's seen as 'neutral'.

There's nothing else like it happening to us personally that we finally figure out how wrong it truly is.   It's sickening that thanks to a renegade vote/veto in the UN, this tyrannical violence can continue and yet that's the political charade that's gone on for generations with your next door neighbor.  I hope you and your family aren't so unfortunate as to have to live in perpetual danger for too much longer.

How does one remain neutral when bomb hits their house?

How do you negotiate with psychopath mass murderer that has engaged an army against the people?

Isn't being neutral in such situation (situation that involves true terrorism on rejected president part) actually clearly taking a side? More destructive side?

How the hell do you know that? "Not decided" could mean that people don't care, 50/50 where they think both sides have good grounds.
it does not say they don't support FSA or Assad

If you want to generalise about the survey, the most you can say is that over 88% have failed to come out and support Assad for one reason or another.

Why we are at it though - don't imply levels of intelligence attributed to a particular view point, that's flame baiting.

Neither Assad nor the FSA have my support, the first is the tipical "enlighted" dictator in his final hour, and the latter is too fractious and muslim-radical ridden to be able of creating a true and good govermtn for the Syrian people. Very bad situation.

Im an evil pinko UN slave liberal commie

I don't think any of these "The Vague Society of Nebulous Meanies are going to take over the world and light up a planet" theories worry too much about practical considerations like that. It's all about rousing ill-informed, paranoiac fear, not making sense.
