What do you guys think about the Syrian conflict five months later?
Not only is it still going on, it is continually getting worse.
As if the Assad regime wasn’t bad enough, now Al Qaeda is getting involved and the FSA has to fight them off as well.
I suspect Al Qaeda thinks they can wedge themselves into the conflict in order to take control of the nation in its weakened state. But the last thing Syrians want is another fascist and fanatical leadership making the rules in the country.
If that wasn’t enough, the conflict is starting to become less about a revolution and more over yet another pissing match between Sunni and Shiite factions in the area (which may be a result of Al Qaeda’s involvement, I don’t know)
But wait! There’s more!
It turns out that chemical WMD’s are being used in the war as well. From the regime no less…like I said: worse and worse.
The most perplexing thing of it all, is why nothing is being done about this even when our news reports have shown extremely damning evidence of humanitarian crimes. I suppose we still have Russia to thank for that.

Actually you know what? That there is the reason why the war never ends and only gets worse. I’m talking about the kind of people who wrote that article and the type of people who agreed with it in the comment section
It because of people like that, a war that was once clearly between a corrupt dictator and freedom fighters has been convoluted with religious matter to the point where people just see see another religious conflict and take sides accordingly.
It should have been another Libya. But the worst case scenario happened instead.
I’d go on but my jimmies are rustled. I’m off to play GZDoom
