It is certainly a good thing that Syria has gun control isn’t. It would be a crying shame if any of the Bashar al-Assad soldiers were injured by the OPRESSED citizens who are fighting for their liberty with broom sticks while the Bashar al-Assad soldiers are exterminating the Rebels with automatic gun fire. Yes it would be a shame.
You see now in living color and BLOOD what could happen if we lost our 2nd amendment rights to bear arms. I not saying that our Government would order our own troops to shoot us down, because I do not believe that would happen. What I am saying is if we did lose our rights to bear arms, then the only ones to have weapons are the criminal element. It would then be open season on the unarmed. That’s exactly how I see it. Maybe I am wrong. That said, the Christians have a totally different take on matters. They (Christians) are all for the Assad Regime, as a matter of fact the Christians within Syria are content to see their fellow citizens gunned down in the street.
(DAMASCUS, Syria) As the announcement was made Saturday evening that Russia and China had vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning the actions of the Syrian regime, some Christians inside the country celebrated.
One man from the western Syrian town of Qatana called his relatives to say “mabrook,” or congratulations, on the result of the vote. A lounge bar in Damascus offered two alcoholic drinks for one in a happy hour offer. But in Christian homes around the country the prevailing sentiment is one of relief rather than delight — they link the survival of the Assad regime to their own. “Thank god for Russia. Without Russia we are doomed,” said a Christian woman from Damascus recently. As a fellow minority, Christians have long supported the Alawite regime in order to ensure protection and rights for themselves. The Alawite are a Shiite sect of Islam.
“Look what has happened in Iraq and now in Egypt,” said the woman. “Assad in power means that won’t happen here.”
As you can read, the Christian sects in Syria feel protected by the Assad regime and they want the uprising to fail. How would the Christian sect feel if the shoe were on the other foot….they may come to find out rather sooner than later. What I do not understand from these so called Christians is how can they as CHRISTIAN condone the death of their fellow Countryman, I am at a loss for words.
In my opinion Syrian Christian should be hand and hand with the Rebels, who are being massacred as everyone just stands by and allows this to happen. Russia and China also, they so far have condoned the killings and have vetoed efforts by the United Nations to apply sanctions. To me I just can not make any sense out this senseless death and violence. I guess I am not seeing the whole picture.
Thousands of Christians are tied up in the regime’s security apparatus and are employed in high-ranking government and military positions. Aware that some day the masses might rise up against the regime, Syria’s previous president, Hafez al-Assad, sought to consolidate power among the minorities, people he knew would unite when tested.
Furthermore, ties between Syria’s Christians and Alawites are not restricted to the spheres of politics and security.

William Hague says UN veto a ‘betrayal’ of Syrian People
The British Foreign Secretary William Hague has accused China and Russia of “betraying the Syrian people” by vetoing a UN resolution condemning violence there.Mr Hague said it had been a “grave error” and risked increasing the prospects of civil war in the country. The UK would increase pressure on the Syrian government through the UN and other bodies, he insisted. complete article
William Hague puts it in terms everyone can understand, and rightfully so.
“This is a doomed regime as well as murdering regime”
Hague as is right on the money calling the Assad a Murdering Regime, this regime is no different that what the world faced in WWII. You would think humanity would have learned by what happened in WWII, apparently not. May God Help them.
This continuing violence was “appalling” and the government of President Bashar al-Assad is “doomed”, he added. He was speaking as Syrian government forces stepped up their assault on the city of Homs, one of the centres of anti-government protests over the past 11 months. The Syrian opposition says Saturday’s veto by China and Russia of a UN draft resolution condemning the crackdown will encourage the government to act without restraint. (Read Complete Article)
I am just perplexed, thousands of years of violence in the Middle East, and still no one is at rest. It is just one war after another. The United States is not going to be able to SAVE the world much less make a difference in Middle Eastern policy, especially when almost all of the Middle Eastern countries want to blow the United States off the map, along with Israel.
That alone should tell you that the USA is not wanted in the middle East…So I am going along with, if you do not want our help, you do not get it, also keep in mind, you do not get our any aid, which translate into MONEY, you get none of it. As far as your Middle Eastern stinking oil that we have been dependent on for years…..take it and stink it up where the sun doesn’t shine.
If the politicians and this current administration would get off their dead rear ends and open up the “Bakken deposits” and accept Canadian Keystone pipeline, we would be well on our way to getting off our dependency of the middle Eastern Oil. That is just my opinion, at least I am still entitled to my opinion…….so far that is.
