14.5 million Syrians were eligible to vote cast their opinion. With a turnout of 57 percent, 89 percent voted for the new constitution. So the Syrians have clearly expressed their desire for a peaceful democratic change. Western politicians & media react

Keep in mind the so called republican christians want WAR in the mideast. It's not to help the people there, but to bring the second comming of Christ. I do believe we (the world) needs to help the Syrian people from this terrible despot. But, it can't be just US doing it, but as a UN action.

Nick, if Bahar Al Assad was such a terrible despot why in God's name 89% support his presidency by voting for the new constitution?
Btw, was Americans allowed to vote for NDAA or TSA or FEMA Camps or War On Terror with all it's consequences - which indeed is mentionable incising measures for draconic alteration in US freedom rights? Was this new world order constitution for the US citizen introduced by the will of we-the-people?
Where is the Change, the USSA war is peace Nobel Price awarded head o' state promised?

But it topples now - did you hear about the new trespass bill, to become law in America?
- Where protesting becomes illegal under certain premises and you have to say farewell to first ammendment?

Your country became a country of the peppersprayed and a country of the detained without charge.
Maybe we (the world) needs to help the American people from this terrible despot?

How about if Peking or Moscow would do the job to recondition your constitution, your forefathers have fought for and paid with their blood.

How about the native Americans Nick?
Did God tell the white men to kill the red people?
Or now in the Middle East - did God tell the world Sheriff and the North American Terror Organisation (in short NATO) and it's war machine ro invade, rape and plunder the brown people's countries?

And no, Nick, I do not believe it is insane Christian fanatics want war in the ME.
Because Christians do not stand for war but Peace, according to the teachings of the Christ Jesus.

Is it rather Zionists in the camouflage of NeoCons and their infantry who prepare the second coming of the Christ by way of destroying EVERYTHING and to breathe a sigh of relief when the saviour would pick "the chosen ones" and lead to their promised land...
... which is accidently the craddle of mankind, the Middle East.

Most Syrians back President Assad, but you'd never know from western media
Assad's popularity, Arab League observers, US military involvement: all distorted in the west's propaganda war

We really should not listen to the media in all - because the brutal war machine and the lying and distracting by design addicted hookers (media) goes hand in hand.

Hell, the war morngering rightwing doesn't want it for the U.S. either !

Calle J....I must have read it wrong or you haven't listen to the Christian rightwing in a very long time when you said..."Because Christians do not stand for war but Peace, according to the teachings of the Christ Jesus". That's all the 'christian fanatics/evangelic extremist' want and talk about in the U.S. toay ..war based on their hate and fear. They support everything that the GOP wants to destory about this country..our democracy most of all. I hope you catch up on what the rightwing Christian extremist/fanatics/evangelic are about these days since you apparently really have no idea if you believe what you said above about them....but you are able and have the right to quote the rethoric... of that quote of yours I just mentioned..even after they've done all they can to support the very opposite. By the by...forced religion is never a good thing...check out the middle east if anyone believes differently.

I believe there are two reasons why the international community is not reacting to the dire situation in Syria.
1.Syria is closely connected to Iran and a strike like in Libya could open a can of worms.........
2.Syria has no oil.
Thanks Henriette.

I usually chose to ignore your dispensable comments Jae, but about Christianity, I would like to add my two cents.
I'm not talking about organised religions here, they are a source of distraction, hate and terror vs mankind and do not unite but separate. And do not need a priest as an interstation relay to speak to Jesus.

And... right or left, what does it matter, the route is the same

Arild, I agree with what you believe in #1:
"Syria is connected to Iran"

Earlier this year, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad underlined that Tehran would maintain and reinvigorate its alliance with Syria under any kind of condition and would defend Damascus against any possible military aggression by the West.

A senior Iranian lawmaker cautioned the US to take Tehran's tough warnings against a military intervention in Syria seriously, stressing that the Syrian people will not tolerate foreign interference in their country's affairs.

"Iran's warning against intervention in Syria's affairs is serious and it is in the interest of the Americans to avoid meddling in Islamic states' affairs," Vice-Chairman of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi told FNA on Wednesday.
A senior Iranian lawmaker cautioned the US to take Tehran's tough warnings against a military intervention in Syria seriously, stressing that the Syrian people will not tolerate foreign interference in their country's affairs.

He added that Muslim states will not allow Washington to turn Syria into another Iraq for the sake of Israel's interests.

And Arild, have you read the story, Henriette has linked with?

It's not about human rights, it is about resources to plunder and pipelines - thus the peace loving and ahh so good Al-CIA-da rebels - as their very first action in Syria blew up the pipeline in the Homs-district of Syria.
Gladly. I could find a map with this geo-strategical consideration - click!

This just to make yesterdays statement to Arild affirmed.

Other research shows Homs not only is the center of Syrian oil industry, where it come together strategically important pipelines. For example, the so-called Arab gas pipeline, provides natural gas from Egypt to Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. It ends in Homs - temporary.
An extension is planned to Kilis in Turkey, and then connect to the very important pipelines from Russia, Iran, Turkmen Istan and even from the Caspian Sea.
After Homs is also a pipeline from Iraq to be built to open up these important sources for the West.
Homs made from a tap goes to Banyas on the Syrian coast, and one wants to lay a gas pipeline to Cyprus.

noted. Thanks for the post Henriette. Syria's vote should be's their country. As for extremists, they exist in every religion..not just Christian. God..look at the region we're speaking of. Don't you think there are extremists there? Religion doesn't belong in the mix anyway.

Leave religion out of politics, as this is a personal choice, common grounds for all beings & freedom of rights where you live should never be interfered with by foreigners. Americans should just stay home & take care of their own dire situation is my 2 cents worth.

Just because one votes for a new constitution does not mean that one agrees with the regime. Assad is KILLING his people. There is no excuse. Just because the turnout was 57% (according to Assad's sources, btw) doesn't mean that the people are not sick of Assad. His father was just as bad. The Baath party has undemocratically been in power since 1966, and has severely limited freedom of expression by torturing and killing its opponents, even before the uprising. That is definitely not peace and democracy. Look it up: his father, Hafez Al-Assad massacred thousands of people (from 20 000 to 40 000 people) in 1982 because they protested against his regime. So-called "constitutional reform" means nothing if the population continues to be unable to voice political opinion. I have family in Syria, and they told me exactly what is going on when they came to visit. They have no freedom of speech and are even afraid of Assad's secret police force outside of Syria. Just Friday, the town of Houla was shelled and at least 90 civilians were killed, 32 of whom were CHILDREN. Please stand with the people of Syria and help pressure Assad's bloody regime into resignation.

Sabrine if one sticks to fairy tale country you might be absolute right.
If you stick to the facts, opposite to NY Times or Washington Post - also so called social networks like kill2 blogs

- you may find a quite different picture.

West's Syrian Narrative Based on "Guy in British Apartment"

Maybe this would help you to understand clearly what is really going on in Syria and in contrary what is portrayed in the Zionist owned main stream.
