Perhaps you should rethink who's side we should be supporting. Assad is fighting off the friends of Obama and company...they are mostly Sunni Muslims (Muslim Brotherhood etc.) The main stream media and the United Nations are quite proud of their world-wide indoctrination of the 'people'... they have convinced most people that Assad is killing his own people and this is simply not true. It's a religious war of sorts, Muslims against Muslims (Alawis or Alawites against the Sunnis et al Muslims). The civilized world needs to wake up. ~ Norman E.

Syria: Want to stop the slaughter? Stop Obama! He's backing the carnage! (link)Others bloggers may be on top of this but only a few stand out (Websites that understand the hypocrisy of Islam and the danger Islam presents to America: Planck's Constant, Jihad Watch, Atlas Shrugs, Take Our Country Back, ...actually there are too numerous to count) and what stood out the most today was the headline over at Atlas Shrugs:
"...dishing out what the main stream media does not want you to know. Proffessor Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization backs up everything I've said and more." ...at the very least watch the video! here
The story comes to us from The Telegraph and is reprinted here (because you won't read it in the main stream media and like Professor Chossudovsky backs up everything I've said and more!):
Muslim Brotherhood establishes militia inside Syria
The Muslim Brotherhood has established its own militia inside Syria as the country's rebels fracture between radical Islamists and their rivals, commanders and gun-runners have told The Daily Telegraph.
In the early days of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, secular and Islamist rebels were both prepared to fight under the FSA's banner and recognise the SNC as their political masters.
But the FSA, dominated by defectors from the regime's army, has fallen out with the SNC, whose leaders are in exile. It now has its own political front, the Syrian Support Group (SSG). This split has divided the revolution's main international backers, with Saudi Arabia supporting the FSA and Qatar moving closer to the SNC and the Islamist militias.
The divisions are affecting operations on the ground: competing militias co-operate when necessary but otherwise disavow each other. "I would take it as an insult if you described me as FSA," said Abu Bakri, a front line commander of an Islamist militia in Aleppo calling itself the Abu Emara Battalion.
One activist described how he was working with Sunni politicians in Lebanon to buy arms for the FSA with Saudi money.
A member of the FSA command centre, located in neighbouring Turkey, told the Daily Telegraph that they have this week received large consignments of ammunition, machine guns and anti-tank missiles. At one point Saudi Arabia and Qatar were both funding the FSA, with the command centre receiving up to $3 million in cash every month. But the operative said the situation had changed.
"Now we are not working with the Qataris because they made so many mistakes supporting other groups."
But the fracturing of the armed opposition raises the prospect of post-Assad Syria becoming a battleground. "This adds to the fragmentation and tones down the credibility of the opposition," said Louay Sakka, the SSG's Executive Director. "Supporters should go through the proper channel of the Free Syrian Army military council rather than build their own militias."
Amr al-Azm, a Syrian-American academic who was briefly on the SNC, said that Syria risked the same kind of disintegration that was set in motion by Saddam Hussein's downfall in neighbouring Iraq. The West's decision to limit its involvement in the Syrian conflict – and refrain from supplying lethal weapons – had left a gap for the Islamists to fill.
"By playing to your own fears, you are making them come true," said Mr Azm. "By not intervening, you are forcing people to go those who have resources. No one wants to go to al-Qaeda, but if you are down to your last five bullets and someone asks you to say 'Allahu Akbar' (God is greatest) five times, you do it."
