1. Good to see France is leading the...
Chris.B ,   Australia   (11.14.12)
way to recognize terrorists and imported jihadis from around the middle east as legitimate leaders of a sovereign country. It sounds like Libya all over again but lucky for Assad he obtained pansr S1 and other formidable air defence systems from Russia before the west tried to overthrow him.No Nato bombing raids for this country. ha ha ha
2. really intelligent!!!
DavidR ,   USA   (11.14.12)
Once more the US recognizes the muslim brotherhood as head of a major state. I am not surprised by France but for the US to recognize this scum is beyond unbelievable. A better answer would be to let them fight until both sides are history.
3. Opposition coalition
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.14.12)
There are several very disparate groups in play. How long before they start fighting amongst themselves? Not long.
4. #1
Even though illegal, France, US and probably UK have been involved in the anti-Assad fighting from day 1. My guess is French Foreign Legion is behind the destruction of Assad's armor and shot down his aircraft. The "allies" did not expect that the Syrian people would support Assad for so long, or that Iran would be able to give Assad so much aid. Now that Obama has been reelected and someone (Iran? Russia?) shut down FF2 in Benghazi, they will want to intervene to bring this to end before Iran sets off a nuke.
5. OMG!
Kurd ,   Sweden   (11.15.12)
Violence leads nowhere, laughable. Then why do they wants to send arms to a bunch of terrorists in syria. Its all political, no humanity what so ever.
6. "Islam is the solution"
Terrorologist   (11.17.12)
The only consequence of removing the Assad regime is the Islamization of Syria, just like Tunisia, Lybia and Egypt.
