Why am I not surprised? The current situation in Syria is a civil war, much like what happened in Libya. It is a fierce battle between the Moderates (al-Assad) and the Fundamentalists (al-Qaeda-backed Syrian Rebels). We should leave well enough alone, and let them sort their own issues out. After all, the Muslim world always cries foul when the West “gets involved in their own politics”. We should have never gotten involved in Libya.
Syrian rebels: what are their motives? Establish an Islamic state governed by Sharia Law OF COURSE!
