    If supplying weapons to combatants is the only characteristic to declare a proxy war, then World War Two was nothing more than a Swedish proxy war designed to sell iron to Germany and 40mm anti-aircraft guns to the allies.

    This revolt strikes me as the natural result of one tiny ethnic group's dictatorial control over the majority. Especially in the wake of regional regime changes.

    The people of this region want to join the rest of the world in the 21st Century. That is not hard for me to believe.

      Will all due respect I disagree.   It is a despicably horrible theocratic state  that commits routinely crimes against humanity.   The fact that they are among the major supporters and weapon suppliers of the rebels shows the quality of the rebels as well.

        If I am a Syrian rebel, I don't care if the crate of RPG rockets is marked Ridyah, Bejing, Moscow, or Oslo. Your charge is nothing but guilt by six degrees of separation.
