Not a very partisan article, more adjectives than facts. As for the uprising, by the map it looks like to have come from out side the country which is rather odd, wouldn't an uprising start in majors centres and spread out like every other one we've watched over the last fw years?

So killing people with chemical weapons is considered a crime against humanity...

But murdering people with machine guns and tanks and flame throwers and guided missiles and napalm and cluster bombs is a o f###en kay...

I guess with the use of chemical weapons the people have no chance of protecting themselves.

Russia and China are dictatorships, as we all know, so no surprise why they are on the side of Assad.

Quote:Repression - suppressing all divergent opinion - is a stronger instrument. Stefes explained in an interview with DW that in this respect there is a difference between "harsh" and "soft" repression. Russia provides an example of "soft" repression, he says. From time to time it cracks down openly on demonstrators and members of the opposition, but most repression there remains hidden. "Undesirable journalists get hit with a flood of libel actions, or the tax authorities go after critics of the regime," says Stefes. "Mr Putin goes about it very cleverly."

In any event, it is the Syrian people that have and will continue to suffer.

Quote:The CIA Facebook confirms not only the trouble with the Syrian economy, it also cements the nation as a third-world one that will not emerge from that status under current circumstances. The CIA evaluation also confirms how little Syrian GDP matters to the rest of the world.
