By REUTERS Assad makes first public appearance in two weeks in Jalili meeting; Turkey hints Tehran responsible for Syria bloodshed.

Nature: Alawite Islamic apartheid, Sunni Vs Alawi 'religious hatred.' It also serves as a "Battleground Between Sunnis and Shiites."
Plight of Christians after Islamic rebels' atrocities: over 12,000 flee Homs, third largest city in that country.
I hope we can sit out the coming Middle East explosion.
None of this would happen if it weren’t for Israel.
(Are sarcasm tags really necessary?)
My Almighty God prorect us all... and bad guys fighting each other is not always a bad thing... it’s just a shame for the loss of life.
Indeed, the Guardian of Israel never rests or sleeps. Psalm 121:4
Not necessary at all and well noted, as Islamofascist's favorite line is: 'it's always the joos fault.'
So Damascus IS about to become a heap of ruins (Isaiah 17). Maybe in the next few month?
I like the sound of “unbreakable alliance “-—translate that to read “suicide pact “. As the Mullah A$$hats keep losing their friends/fronts they wind up with more backside skin exposed. When Basher goes, and he is indeed GOING, Iran will have a much diminished capacity to weasel arms, etc. into the eastern middle east. I’ve always thot the mullahs were providing crowd killers to help put down the Syrian protests and without Basher they won’t have direct access to the Mediteranean. Won’t it be entertaining if we can find a few turncoat Syrian army types who can testify about Iran arms support?
I think most of us wish we could do that. Can we?
Do we just let the Middle-East devolve into a global threat?
If Iran gets the bomb, that whole region is going postal, and I don’t think it gets better without our involvement.
Someone will get involved, and I don’t want it to be Russia & or China.
Someone will exert influence. Is it going to be us, or folks who hate us? Do we want them developing close ties to these nations, and uniting with them against us?
Nobody wants to be at war. Sometimes the alternative is worse. It can actually be very much worse.
The mullah's won't even grant him asylum once he no longer has an army.
So, what is the going consensus on who are behind the militant rebels??? I don’t know if there really is a “safe” side to take, is there?
As for staying out of it, it might be too late for that seeing as Reuter’s published that Obama had “secretly” promised money and support to the rebels...
This is a HUGE chess game... Not sure who is really playing on which side here though.
Certainly. They would have killed each other off decades ago and the survivors fragmented into tribes, clans and families, and those unable to adapt to a nomadic lifestyle perished in the expanding dessert, if it weren’t for the Jooos! refusing to be annihilated, forcing them to unite in hatred and remain in cities and on farms. The Jooos! are disrupting an ancient way of life with their stubborn addiction to oxygen (and human blood, of course)./s
Pretty disturbing article here:
Saudi Wahhabi Forces Attacked Hundreds of Shia Demonstrators in Qatif, Injured Many (Hang child)
“Meantime, Saudi Wahhabi cleric Mohammad al-Arifi has called on Syrian armed groups to prevent leakage of the pictures and footages of their attacks against Syrian army and civilians.”
Our “friends” are trying to control the blood lust of their jihadist.
Here’s the correct title:
Terrorists in Syria Hang Shiite Child after Killing Family Members.
PR saudi style:
“Meantime, Saudi Wahhabi cleric Mohammad al-Arifi has called on Syrian armed groups to prevent leakage of the pictures and footages of their attacks against Syrian army and civilians.
In his Tweeter page, Arifi asked rebel groups to continue their attacks and intimidation against Syrian people but do not allow a release of the pictures and footages of their operations”
That’s an Iranian news service. Consider the source.
Bad guys on both sides. You have the Islamic Sunni's backed by the corrupt and decadent western leadership, fighting the Islamic Shiite's backed by the corrupt and decadent eastern leadership. Kinda reminds me of when the Clinton's (Bill and Hill) bombed Serbia so that a chunk of Serbian land could be given to the KLA terrorists. Heck, they even used fake and drummed up photos of concentration camp starved victims in that old war.
Man ,do I agree with. you. I love this site. The only intellectual political analyses is right here. Yes, this entire Syria/Iranian alliance is Shiite driven. Please people grab the difference between a Shiite and a Sunni. The State department doesn’t but if you do then you will understand the middle east. If you think that US backed Al Qaeda Sunnis are going to overthrow Assad you are an idiot. Quit listening to “walrus face” Bolton and strive for actual facts.Those Al Qaeda terrorist in Syria are finished. They did not “kill the prince” , I assure you they have put the civilian population in harms way by occupying and hiding behind women and children— NOT ASSAD!! When AL Qaeda hides out in civilian neighborhoods— who’s fault is it people die? The Government will kill them all and collateral damage will be horrible. Iran will invade Syria to stop a Sunni take over. Get a grip. This thing is over just like the last time.
It is somewhat miss leading comparing Syria to Serbia. Syria has no good side, while Serbia did have a good side. And it was not the Clinton's.
What you indirectly address is “political correctness” the ne orthodoxy. You shall not mention religion lest someone might hate that religion. Here is an example. Nidal Hussan is a Wahhabi Sunni. Mohamed Atta and his killing crew were all Wahhabi sect Sunnis. Wahhabi sect Sunnis comprise roughly 100 million of the 1 billion Sunnis . That’s a lot. There are no Wahhabis that believe in not killing non believers. Now back to this godless murderer at Ft Hood. What are we doing there? Well, nothing. He should have been hanged on TV for killing 13 and wounding 43 unarmed (what?)soldiers but we hide him for fear the sheeple might wake up and ask “ Are there any more Wahhabis in our military?” or WORSE!! “Are there any more Wahhabis in our COUNTRY?” GET THEM OUT OF HERE!! But no we hide him from the sheeple and they have such short little memories— it will all go away.
The rebels are a mishmash of “ordinary” fed up Syrians, MB and Saudi backed militants... fair to say, at this time, almost all are Sunni.
There were two high level Iranian trips...... one to Syria and another to Riyadh.
The first was to warn Assad that their support was being withdrawn
The second was to place oil on the waters and soothe the coalition desire to go beyond Syria to the Iranian source of the problems.
I think neither will be worth the time and effort.
Assad is gone, probably will die, Iran will be totally isolated.
