Syria ran Lebanon at that time, and the Hizzies were given the assignment. ALL Moslems attack us, and everyone else (including each other and members of their own families) all the time. Assad’s Russia’s ally, and it’s obvious that’s the reason you support him.
Don't jump to conclusions. I don't support the Russian government for much.
I support the lesser evil in Syria -- and that's Assad. He's evil, as I said before, but not as evil as the alternative.
keeping that in mind, it's better to have the devil you know rather than the devil you don't.
