German intelligence estimates that "around 90" terror attacks that "can be attributed to organizations that are close to al-Qaeda or jihadist groups" were carried out in Syria between the end of December and the beginning of July, as reported by the German daily Die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). This was revealed by the German government in a response to a parliamentary question.
In response to the same question, the German government admitted that it had received several reports from the German foreign intelligence service, the BND, on the May 25 massacre in the Syrian town of Houla. But it noted that the content of these reports was to remain classified "by reason of national interest", Like many other Western governments, Germany expelled Syria's ambassador in the immediate aftermath of the massacre, holding the Syrian government responsible for the violence.
Meanwhile, at least three major German newspapers - Die Welt, the FAZ, and the mass-market tabloid Bild - have published reports attributing responsibility for the massacre to anti-government rebel forces or treating this as the most probable scenario.

Let the Middle East handle their own problems. Just warn them to stay away from us.
This is Cloward-Piven exported to the ME. Too bad for Obama that he can’t get to the same level of civil strife quick enough in the US to accomplish his transformation of our republic.
Well hell let’s send them some guns and money! Maybe even some “advisers”.
Don't forget the lawyers.
Let’s send guns, hold back food, create a reality channel and watch it on TV every night.
Things that make you go HMMmmmmmm..

Now just look at how Russia responded to the RINO/DINO reaction concerning the recent terrorist bombing in Syria. Bold emphasis is mine.
MOSCOW: Russia on Wednesday lashed out at the United States for backing the armed opposition to the Syrian regime, saying Washington's failure to condemn the July 18 blast that killed top security officials meant it was justifying terror.
"This is quite an awful position, I cannot even find the words to make clear how we feel," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters. "This is directly justifying terrorism. How can this be understood?"
Lavrov expressed bewilderment at calls on Russia to clarify its position on Syria, saying Moscow's policy was crystal clear and it was the West whose actions were contradictory.
He criticized US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, saying she had argued that the Damascus attacks meant the UN Security Council had to agree a sanctions resolution against Syria last week that Russia later vetoed.
"In other words, to say it in plain Russian, this means 'we (the United States) will continue to support such terrorist acts for as long as the UN Security Council has not done what we want'," Lavrov said.
What would lead you to believe that we haven't?
