I'm quietly rooting for the Assads.
The reason is that while both sides of that squalid little war are a bunch of murderers, the Syrian government are the good guys. They are secular, non-sectarian, believe in women's rights and the rights of minorities.
The other guys are a bunch of terrorists with big filthy dirty beards, who take money from Wahhabi extremists in the Gulf states, and would rape and/or cut the throats of anybody who does not live up to the utterly extreme brand of conservative Islam.
They're both fighting like animals. The secularists are fighting like animals because their lives depend on it. The other side are fighting like animals because of their religious fervour and political ideals -- they ARE animals. Our enemies are Al Qaeda, the EXACT same monsters Assad is fighting in Syria.
Frankly, I think we're backing the wrong horse. I think that nerve gas and cluster bombs is too good for the dirty bearded terrorists they're fighting, and we should be thanking Assad and kissing his arse for taking out this Wahhabi trash for us.
Why are we backing the terrorists in this war? Because a bunch of undereducated, illiterate idiots in the "Arab street" root for the terrorists? Fuck the Arab Street, let's not bow to cheap populism, and just do what's right for a change.
