      ...and Korean Christians have nothing in common with American Christians either?

        Never support Assad ,that the different

        •  So you support a genocide of Christians? (0+ / 0-)

          I'd like to get you on record on that. If 1,000,000 Christians die or are made refugees that's their own fault?  You do realize that Christianity predates the presence of Islam and Arab ethnics in Syria?  That many of the rebels are not Syrian nationals?

          Hypothetically: In 100 years would you start bombing PM Gordon Pitt in the UK if he had an Islamic insurgency in Tower Hamlets, Bradford and Birmingham to contend with?

      ...Greeks, Assyrians and whatever was left over after Arabs invaded and subjugated the Romans.
      You should take a look at 600's Arab invasions. They swept in
      and enslaved the settled townsmen and farmers who did not convert.  Now they are finishing the job.

       Indeed if you look at who is actually in the rebel force you will find an enormous number of non-Syrians.   You could make a case that the rebels are an alien force drawn from across the Sunni Umma sent to kill Christians and heretic Alawites.  Many are Arabs, Africans, South Asians and European Jihadist coming in from Copenhagen, London, Paris and the US.

      Your view is deeply flawed.  This rebellion is now a full scale invasion by the Sunni.
