Reader comment on item: Wait Out the War in Syria
in response to reader comment: I think we should act, and we should act tomorrow

I have the displeasure to inform you that the greater part of disarmed civilians dead in the civil war in Syria were shot to death by the rebels, the "freedom fighters".

Almost all the massacres that the press showed us in the last 6 months, claiming that were massacres committed by soldier of the Assad regime, now we know that these massacres were committed by the rebels.

In Aleppo, for example, the rebels assaulted the city and claimed large parts of the city to his rulership, but the dwellers of the city don't take part in this war, they don't supported the rebels attackers, and the people don't viewed these rebels as the "liberators" that the press try do mask, but as criminals, like a gang of bandits that invade and dominate part of a city, like the gangs that dominate various districts/neighborhoods in cities like Los Angeles and vast slums in cities like Rio de Janeiro.

In reality, the dwellers of Aleppo viewed as liberators the soldiers of the Syrian army, and praised to the coming of them, thinking that they could free the city from the disliked criminals rebels.

Assad is a despotic ruler, and the Syrian people don't like him, but, since the civil war intensified in the beginning of the current year, many Syrians that disapproved of Assad, came to support his government. Even many sunni muslims, if they don't support the regime, they don't support the rebels equally.

The majority of the christians of Syria hates the rebels. Even the sunni muslims of Syria don't support the rebels. The Syrian people lived in a country well developed, by the Middle East standards, and don't were easily convinced to support the rebels, that lacks a base of support firmly entrenched in Syria, like the salafi islamists in Libya had in Benghazi and in the Cyrenaica region. Because this, the rebels are scattered in all the country, without having any place where they can clearly fixate a Base, with the support of the people around.

In Aleppo, the rebels tried to conquer the city, but the people of the city don't make any move to support them.

The Syrian people is tired of this senseless war.

Day by day, the people begin to hate even more the rebels, much more than they dislike the Assad government.

If the American troops have to be deployed there, what the Syrian people want is that, first, the rebels must be defeated and expelled from the country.

But this is not The Plan that the Obama administration have developed, since his government supports the rebels, falsifying the wishes of Syrian people, trying to show these murderers rebels as the aspiration of the people, even though the people hates them much more that the people disliked the Assad regime.
