1. they, too, will be defeated
Cipora Julianna Kohn   (06.21.13)
they were defeated in iraq, and they will be defeated in syria. if they attempt to impose their murderous medieval ideology on the syrian people, the people will defeat them just as the people of Iraq defeated the jihadists in their midst. the syrian people want peace, prosperity, freedom and moderation. they do not want to replace one tyranny by another tyranny.
2. Bright new future?
Get Real ,   UK   (06.21.13)
It's all too good to be true. The Islamists have made their intentions plain, and if they survive will impose their will on the population. At the moment just going through the honeymoon period.
3. Replacing one Fascist regime with another Fascist regime
Juha Teuvonnen ,   Boston,MA   (06.21.13)
I am not particularly fond of Bashar Al-Assad's regime, but to give him credit when credit is due, he is a secular fascist. Should FSA prevail, he will be replaced with a religious fascist regime, basically a Sunni version of Iran. May be I don't understand something, but I don't see this as a positive change.
4. This assad family is murder on the population
Mighty Jew Young ,   AMERICA THE BEAUTIUL   (06.22.13)
between his father's 45,000 +/- dead and his own 100,000 +/- dead, the 500,000+/- wounded and 1,500,000 +/-displaced, these assads need some governing lessons...big time. or the noose at the Hague.
