What "allies" of ours exist in the Syrian civil war?
So true, huh?
The US has absolutely no interest in seeing the regime in Syria, unpleasant as it is, replaced with Islamist radicals who are leading the uprising. And if the Israelis think that they'll be better off with fundamentalist mullahs running things in Syria than they were with Assad in power, they're in for an unpleasant surprise.
Christians should stand up against Assad’s genocidal socialist tyranny. If they stand with Assad then they bring shame to Christians everywhere and should beg God’s forgiveness.
Since the realistic alternative to Assad is an Islamist regime, I fail to see the benefits in removing him from power. If you remove secular dictators from power in the Middle East, they're not replaced by western-style constitutional democracies, but by mullahs and imams.
Incidentally, the Christians in Syria aren't being killed off by Assad. They're being killed off or driven out by the rebels.
