It’s been said the Muslim Brotherhood layed low and became “moderate” in their thinking concerning radical Islam....but in fact simply have waited until the opportunity rises to move forward with their agenda to set in place Islamic rule. So there’s differences today of who and what they really are. Either or they are not good news as far as I can see. Not that Assad is any better but at least he’s established an International Presence where other nations have been able to negotiate somewhat with him.
I do understand though, that Syrians can be very brutal in warfare and not to be taken lightly.
Assaad has created untold amounts of trouble in the region. He supports terrorist activities, he supports Hezbollah financially, with weapons and many other ways. They in turn have ruined Lebanon and are constantly attacking Israel. He controls Lebanon almost as his personal puppet. Working with Iran, he has helped in the killing of our soldiers in Iraq. I personally believe the reports that WMDs were shipped from Iraq to Syria before the war.
Whatever could come to power after toppling Assad can never be any worse than him and could certainly be better.
