    Doesn't mean it is true.

    There was a large peaceful demonstration.

    There was also a militant Islamic force that did not want either the peaceful demonstrator or the regime to win.

    That was glossed over by the Western press. Like when Bashar told his security forces to sit in their barracks in Jisr Ash Shagur in June in 2011 while the people protested, and the 120 security people staying away, they were all slaughtered by some foreigners that broke from the crowd. link

    Of course no one in the West gave a damn. They blamed it either on Syria or in fighting or what have you.

    Same thing happened in Ma'arat an Nu'man. A peaceful demonstration, police in barracks, and bearded thugs stormed the police station and started slaughtering them.

    Again, the west buried it. Like it buried the Arab League report talking about all the violence by the opposition.

        But the Syrian government has both good and bad elements to it. Everything we have done has done nothing but strengthen the bad elements.

        He stretched his arm out to the West and neocons like McCain cut it off.

        You want him to sell his country out to the lying sack of shit Washington assholes?

        Granted, that worked well in South America and they all love us...(oh wait, no THEY HATE US!). Kinda like Egypt. THEY HATE US.

        Pretending we have a liberal foreign policy is destroying our foreign policy.
