Reader comment on item: Support Assad

Submitted by Farhad Lahafdoozi (United States), Apr 22, 2013 at 19:52

Whatever happens in Syria, could be a clear message. The nations, even old-fashioned, traditional Islamic nations, have figured it out, somehow, that there is no more room for dictatorship. And, secondly, the moslem world is in trouble since Islam, with my respect, doesnt match democracy.

Syria has been one of the vicious systems ever, which bothered Israel and US for more than 40 years. Now, Bashar Asad is paying the cost. Unfortunately, the massess as well. US shouldnt even hesitate to help the rebels even if they are holding Islamic Ideaologies.

If Mr Obama's administration worries about the Islamic victory over Assad regime, then why not to try to

create and support a democratic alternative? why Turkey should be the main concern rather than the Syrians who have experienced a brutal system? They are just taking their time because Syria was the second serious threat to Israel after Saddam's regime.

The only solution to Islam's dangers is to create, support and protect democratic movements among the moslems. If you dont, or if you hesitate, then the out come is more blood.
