Reader comment on item: Support Assad

It seems that what you are saying is ""better the devil you know than the devil you don't". Both parties are killing their own people with no respect for life and you still feel you have to side with one of them.

What strikes me is the fact that the U.S feels it has to side with one of the two sides and sometimes hesitate to choose.

What I say is "Why this need to choose a side'? Why not let the parties fight one another, as it is their country and their problem they are trying to solve. Once there is a winner, then we can decide if we like it or not, and what difference would that make ? Especially when there is no assurance the country will become a democracy

Your 2) reflection hits it on the nail, showing us that the U.S always chooses the wrong side

And for showing the pictures of Hussein and Assad next to Stalin is giving them quite an honor. Do they really deserve it?
