so the president Bashar Al Assad have always seems a very nice person who want progress and democracy and an end of corruption, however unfortunately the past two years shawed that he is not what you wish him to be, it's a mind boggling how he manage to keep calm and easy when the whole country raging with war becouse of him, and so untill now many citys have been destroyed, tens of thousands have been killed, tens of thousands have been injured, the economy is going really bad, and yet his exesuse for still being in power is that he is fighting a universal conspiracy fighting with him in a proxy war using al qaeda

and so do you believe his story and think he should stay in power with an iron hand,
or do you think that there is no Al Qaeda, and it's only the syrian people want freedom, as described by the opposition

Is there such a thing as a good dictator?

It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

In the beginning of all this the demonstrations were peaceful.  He never negotiated - he just started shooting.  Some of the actions attributed to the FSA have been as bad as what the Syrian army have done so if I had to guess, the two don't seem far apart in their goals and neither have the people's interest at heart - they just want raw power and control.  Eventually it seems to me that Assad will go, one way or another and then the country will be ruled by the strongest surviving group - possibly after a long continuing civil war - sad....

I support the will of the people.
The will of Syrian people is obviously the opposition and the FSA. Of course they are not perfect and god knows what else will get even bloodier or more complicated, but they are the choice of majority of Syrians.
End of discussion for me. It happens that I also agree with them and I also see great resemblances between my nation’s and Syrian fight for freedom. It will be proven again that a dictator can have all the weapons and population can be literally barehanded, and still it will be the people that will prevail.
All the best to you Soul and your people and may it end soon.

I wish KoS would post already, I’m officially worried for him now.

I dont know what role Al-Queda plays in that conflict one way or the other. I do hope the Syrian people find the peace they have bled so much to gain.

My support for either side is irrelevant, (as is that of most other people outside of Syria), provided British troops aren't sent to yet another desert rat-hole to be murdered by IED's in order to make our politicians look like the 'World Statesmen' they clearly aren't!

Do you Support Assad or FSA

Can I support none of them, and instead support the innocent who are clashed in between?

I PM'd KoS and he responded last on Dec. 3rd.  He said he was fine but that his grand father had passed away from natural causes.  He seemed up beat at that time.....  I hope he is doing well, I also am concerned for him and his family there.

What I want to ask those who support FSA and revolution is:

1) Do you see any parallel between this revolution and revolution in Iran when Pahlavi was replaced with Khomeni? Do you think that we can see similar scenario in Syria?
2) Do you think that Assad will try to establish Alavite state? And Kurds some Kurdistan state?
3) Do you think that if secularism in Syria under Assad didnt won over Islam radicalism that something will change when Islam radicals came on throne?
4) What do you think what would happened to Chemical weapon after Assad is gone and when Islam radicals get hand on chemical weapon?
5) Are you affraid that Islam radicalism could use chemical weapon against Israel as counterweight to their nuclear program?
6) Do you think that Syria under FSA could attack Israel?
7) Dont you think that when Islamists see FSA success in Syria they would try to overthrown King in Jordan? In that way turn pro western Jordan as another middle east islam state with radicalism?
8) Dont you think that when FSA took Syria under their control that Sunni muslim in Lebanon will try to dominate there too? And that way ruin peace in Lebanon?

Thanks in advance.
