The conflict in Syria is not a civil war but rather a foreign backed insurgency. The rebels have all been funded, trained & equipped by the USA & it's allies, including Israel, the UK, France, Saudi Arabia, the UAE & Jordan.

General Westley Clark "We're going to take out 7 countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & finishing off with Iran"

The western mainstream media tries to justify America's support for the rebels & its direct occupation of Syrian territory by portraying Assad as a ruthless dictator, but what about Saudi Arabia, Jordan, UAE ? They're all run by authoritarian monarchies are they not ?

What about the peaceful protests in Bahrain that were brutally & violently suppressed ? I guess peaceful protestors don't count when they're protesting against a US ally?

The US & its allies try to accuse Bashar Al Assad, Syria's president of using chemical weapons, but why is it that his forces only tend to use chemical weapons every time they achieve a major victory ? Isn't it more likely that the rebels would use chemical weapons out of desperation in those situations ?

In 2014, Bashar Al Assad won the Syrian presidential elections by 70%. The election results were monitored & verified by a group of lawmakers from over 30 countries.

I watched that video, the irony is people were laughing while he was revealing the dark truth behind Iraq War, does people have any idea how many innocent life's were perished including children, Libya the whole turned into ashes from the richest to poor in matter of months yet the world is quietly watching. Go look into those people's life how it feels to loose a child.
