Bashar el Assad & Syria

Reader comment on item: Support Assad

Submitted by SAM (Canada), Apr 12, 2013 at 13:23

I took a view of the calamity in Syria different from the leftist media that supported the demise of El Assad. No wonder US policy is failing in almost everywhere because of a very poor CIA presence and effectiveness!

From the beginning, Assad is appreciated by most of his people except others who decide their citizenship to Syria on religious grounds. I knew from the beginning that Assad regime is brutal but at least there was political stability. Now all sorts of factions to ruin what is left of an established nation, jihad, US, western nations, El qaeda and what have you. US is repeating her grave error of downing Saddam Hussein and replacing him with terror and fading away nation. Following the same in Syria and US will never learn, whatever the price! God, when do they wake up!!
