Comments on: Iran transformed Syria‚Äôs army into a militia that will help Assad survive another year Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: EagleDeMoN Fri, 19 Dec 2014 09:18:07 +0000 @brotherkenny4 – Sorry, don’t like your comment, and only registered to let you know that your prediction is just a pile of cr.. and I find it very unlikely that humanity, and life in general just spawned to kill itself.
I think the purpose of life is much different – it is about surviving and thriving. In a both cold and hot(to make it simple) environment. Middle east will not be an example as to how the world will look like in the future. The world of the future only exists in peoples mind – minds like yours. Minds like people who order other people to kill other people – unfortunately too.

But also minds like mine, and I rather believe in peace and abundance of everything for everyone – because in fact all resources required for life are not only to be found on earth – but in our whole f.. solar system, galaxy and universe. No need to kill each other here on earth – all it takes is greed, hate, violence to stop.
All humanity needs is a lovely kick it the butt to take notice of the fact that almost EVERY, SINGLE, PROBLEM we face today is manmade. And if its made by man, likely as of now, only mankind can stop it. For example, in theory not a single person would have to starve in this very moment(fact) – if every single individual would want it to stop. But most don’t see, don’t care, and live their happy life’s.

There is always more than one path to reach destiny – and destiny is a variable that nobody knows for sure or is even able to prove.

So, good luck to you – I hope your vision will change.

Good x-mas time everyone.

Furthermore, he did not mention that Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey with support from the West intentionally targeted this beautiful country. Syria is experiencing tragic events where people are either killed or forced into exile. This killing was financed by authoritarian Arab regimes and the pro-Israeli Western government. If there is a respect for international law those responsible for arming and supporting terrorists in Syria will be brought to justice.

a transitional government and elections-

“government of national unity”

Syria is becoming so degraded by the civil war is is becoming useless as an asset to iran, and not so great a port asset for Russia (shore leave in civil war in impossible).

Minorities cannot terrorize majorities forever – and I doubt the death toll will hit 300,000 before the dyanmics change again

But of the 3 million Alawite, please note that at least half are women/girls, unlikely to be fighting, many young men have fled to other countries or bribed their way out of service, plus tens of thousands injured mentally and physically and unable to fight. In short, Assad will run out of cannon fodder and already suffers severe man power shortages. Eventually that will doom him.

By: brotherkenny4 Wed, 17 Dec 2014 15:10:31 +0000 I predict that the growing fascism in the world will result in all nations decaying to a similar point as the middle east, where historical hatreds are never forgotten and where religious fanaticism justifies all actions. I believe it is the destiny of mankind to become what the middle east has become.

By: knowles2 Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:21:54 +0000 Really you called what happens to the rebels over the last year stalemate. Syrian government force have achieve one victory after another. An it almost certain that without foreign interference of airstrikes, that Syrian government forces will recapture Aleppo. But then I guess this blogger will still be calling this conflict a stalemate.
