Reader comment on item: Syria: Commentator cautions support for rebels

Submitted by Paul Severien (Australia), Aug 21, 2012 at 05:00

Dr. Pipes is absolutely correct. Although Assad is a dictator, he is protecting the minorities of which his people (Alawites) are a part of. These others include Christians, Jews and other religious groups. If Assad is toppled, who knows what sort of regime will take over.
