    So its official.... the US are arming Syrian Rebels. Not entirely sure on what to think. Obviously... the war needs to be over. Obviously the Syrian rebels need the weapons to enable them to even have a fighting chance against a well trained and vastly better equipped government army. There isnt much of an alternative really. But it just seems a bit stupid giving a load of people weapons who have no loyalty to the person supplying them what so ever and.... who will ultimately either turn against the hand that has fed them... or sell the weapons to the highest bidder once the war is over.... who will again... use them against NATO forces. Or is it just the first step on the ladder towards another invasion.... we give you weapons... you still cant get rid of Assad... so now we invade. hmmmmm.

    Cant find the report on it... but just seen it on Sky News....

    definitely a tricky one,

    arming them seems very stupid especially with the ties to extremists,

    but at the same time we cant let Assad get away with using sarin, he cant be allowed to stay in power after killing nearly 100,000 people

    I dunno, as Im not in a position of power and just posting bollocks on the internet, im going to sit this one out.

    maybe arm them, displace Assad, then sit back and watch them kill each other?

    yeah that sounds good

    Well theres the problem... it seems that actually some extremists arent actually fighting for the rebels... but in fact fighting for Assad. As some of them think the rebels are just US puppets.

    Its also in the interests of the extremists that the war carries on.... its a proving ground for their soldiers. where better to get urban combat experience??

    you seen the Vice doc about the Aleppo snipers?? some seriay CoD style shit.... teenagers camped in clock towers with sniper rifles.





    You seen that place?? so fuked!! even when the wars done... its going to take decades to get it back to the way it was. Entire city is basically in rubble.

    in my opinion... the west have already got what they want. Major Islamic power..... in rubble.


    IN FACT!! there it is.... theres the reason why they are arming the rebels.... its obvious the rebels are losing.... and if assad keeps going thwe way he is... he's going to win.... so arm the rebels.... give them a bit of a moral boost... war carries on for a few more years... destroying even more of the country. HAMERICA WINS!

    I think there are extremists on both sides, maybe youre right, but destabilization of the whole country will eventually lead to a a very bitter west-hating nutter causing a bigger threat to us in a few decades time

    I mightve posted this before



    place looks a Battlefield map...

    by the looks of things america is just shit stirring as usual. They get into too much inner country conflicts like vietnam and korea which they do not need to get involved in, trying to help destory the world by helping countries kill themselves off.

    Hisbollah is defo on Assad´s side. Al Nusra/Al Qaida are pretty much fighting for themselves, it seems that the secular parts of the FSA just allow them. When Assad is gone, this will perhaps be the next fight. Lose/Lose situation imo.

    someone did definitly need to do something just don't think what they have done was the right thing to do, to be fair I have no idea what should have been done but arming rebels will cause more problems than good IMO

    there was no other option imo. if you saw the schoolyard bully beating up another kid and then the bully pulled out a cricket bat, then you would have to step in and give the kid a good old american baseball bat to keep it a fair fight.......and then spend all your lunch money on medical supplies when he comes out of it all battered and bruised

    That is a good way to put it and tbh I can't think of anything else they could have done but just think that it will cause alot of problems in the country and make it worst for the civilians who will be caught up in the cross fire more now both sides are armed, pretty fucked up situation.

    theres nothing pretty about war. it is always gunna have problems and always gunna evoke feelings from everyone outside looking in, especially with civil wars, but it needs to be dealt with as humanly as possible

    the syrians can go to fuck. what really needs to happen is the UN army to intervene to stop the horrid war crimes that are taking place in the name of allah.
    shouting allah snackbar while shooting kids.
    both sides need to be eradicated.
    actually good lets give them weapons and watch them ethnically cleanse each other.
    will give me a few more beheading videos to watch.

    Well I know for a fact that the U.S. handing out up to date military weaponry to extremists and potential threats HAS never come back to bite us in the ass.

    the russians are selling weapons to both sides.
    which is a good thing. keeps our economy going.
