    As a Christian, I'm really afraid that the crisis in Syria, or what the west sees as the necessity to establish democracy would lead to the government of Salafists & muslims brothers just as what happened in Tunisia and Egypt. Bachar El Assad has commited a lot of mistakes but for us minorities, he is a million times better than what democracy may lead to.. because he is also member of a minority of a sect called Alawists... We wish western countries would try to see things through our eyes not only through their interest ...

      I agree with you that the Salafists or the radicals will most probably take over the control is Bashar is ousted forcefully. However, the only way to bring peace and stability and fairness is to have democracy. If freedom brings Salafists, so be it. With what you and I hope happens is that we keep the majority suppressed and we live happily. Things will never be stable with that kind of situation. If the majority get freedom and their rights, the Salafists and the extremists will not be welcome by the majority. By suppressing the majority, we are giving the extremists the excuse to convince the majority that they are the best solution.

    it is unsurprising the image isn't from syria. the spreading of misinformation had proved a strong tool against israel,which helped to get the palestinians world favor. the syrian rebels must have adopted the same tactics. but no matter,i support the rebels any way.

    CNN – The link to this article from the main page is wrong. This should be "Google Chairman: We are not perfect"

    In this world today, nobody can afford to be perfect (only a nobody, who cannot mean any consequence to anybody). Rest have some kind of effect. Positive or negative. Positive effects are positive. Negative effects do not matter much.
    Can a war be perfect? Well, no. A bullet never lodges into a body which kills it, exactly. It only wounds and then the body dies eventually. You need many bullets to take a target perfectly. That is why war isn't perfect.
