This is pre-WWII Spain all over again!

In the blue corner is Obama supporting the "rebels" because it is actually the Muslim Brotherhood of which he is a rabid supporter. This would actually be a disaster for the country if they got in.

In the red corner is the government supported by Russian and China.

In the middle are the non-combatants who, as in any civil war (why is war ever called civil?) are the actual sufferers. I'm afraid that, whatever is said, the sewage system is being damaged and not repaired and that clean water is unlikely to flow everwhere. With the loss of utilities, I doubt that people will be able to boil water to kill off disease.

I would also add that there are other wars and Muslim atrocities happening elsewhere but no-one seems interested in non-Muslim wars. What am I missing?

I guess Obama is waiting for just the right time to either send in troops, or wait until Assad leaves, and let the Muslim extremists take over.

The neocon zionist are well on its way to their New American century goal of control in the middle east/gulf area.

It started with Iraq, then Libya, and now Syria. Next is Iran, followed by Lebanon, Somalia, and then Sudan.

I predict that before Syria is overthrow Iran, Leanon, with the aid of Russia will jump in to contest the neocon/zionist entity represented mainly by Israel and the United states. This might be the start of all out war or armageddon as prophosized in the scriptures.
