I am posting this for a number of reasons, to show fellow Americans what a civil war is like from the front lines in hopes they will not be so eager to have one here, to help people understand more about why the current Obama plan is stupid and ineffective, and to show what people can do when they have a just cause. Toward the end of the video, the real Syrian fighters (not the jihadist)show off a 20mm anti-aircraft cannon they built from spare parts. I do not like or support Assad and think he is a brutal murderous dictator that needed to be taken down. I think even less of the insurgents currently fighting in Syria. The time to have done that was at the beginning when it was mainly local Syrians who wanted to remove him.
Now that he has killed 100,000 of his people and displaced 2 million others, foreign fighter have moved in of the Jihadist brand. They will not leave until they are killed or take over the country. Anything we do now only aids our sworn enemies, fundamentalist Islamist and Jihadist. Russia is correct, at this point the only sane course is for us to aid Assad and remove the foreign fighters, then we can sort out the mess and try to help the indigenous Syrian people. As usual Obama is doing everything backwards by ignoring a developing problem until it gets out of control and then jumping in without knowing what he is doing. So now he wants to bomb Syria because Syria is bombing Syria. How sane is that?
