    The Syrian government has murdered more than 15,000 of its own people in the last 18 months. I know the corresponding number for Bahrain is 95. How many in Saudi Arabia?

    Clearly there is no point in arguing either fact or opinion with you because your positions are fixed and determined well outside of this forum.

    And yet I can always count on you to position long comments to my blogs parroting the Russian position on Syria and Libya.

    You know the Russians pay bloggers for what you are doing? You may be missing a pay check.

      You are the one who supports neoconservative positions and argues for interventions and wars.   I am against all dictators and have made it clear all along.   The Assad regime is not as bad as the Saudis or the Bahrainis, in the sense that it is not a theocratic regime.   The Saudis and the Bahrainis (to whom we sell weapons and support) have horrendous theocratic regimes.   There are more people killed in Syria because the Saudi backed rebels were given weapons and things escalated to a civil war.     That does not mean that the Saudis and Bahrainis are better than Assad.   They simply have our support and our weapons and any uprising there did not get any coverage in the media here.   We have no idea how many people have been killed in Syria and how many in Bahrain.   All is a propaganda war and real numbers are unknown.   The 15,000 that you cite is based on "unconfirmed reports" by the opposition.
