I am appalled at the Syrian opposition's constant calls for intervention by the international community. The Syrian people - long brainwashed by the Baath Party Nazi ideology - have always lamented foreign intervention in Syria. The vast majority of the Syrian opposition are Sunni Muslim fundamentalist assholes who applauded every bomb and every attack around the world (from Iraq and Afghanistan to the Lebanese south) against US, UN, and NATO forces who are trying to help other fucking Muslims establish decent countries and governments.
The entire mindset of the Syrian Nazis - regardless of their tribal or religious or political affiliations - is based on venomous hatred of any past intervention by "foreigners" (aka imperialists, colonialists, crusaders, zionists, etc.).
When uttered by Arab Nationalists (Nazis), the term "foreigners" should be strictly understood as Westerners, and not any foreigners, since no one among the primitive Arabs ever complains about 400 years of Ottoman Turkish occupation (from 1615 to 1918), but they constantly harp at the 20 years between World War I and World War II when Britain and France were given a League of Nations (the forerunner of the UN) mandate to assist the people of this area in determining their future and establishing state institutions after the collapse of the Ottomans.
The reason why the Arabs complain about Western - but not Turkish - intervention is that the Turks are fucking Muslims while the Westerners are secular. Like their fellow Jewish brethren, the Arabs make no distinction between religious and national identity. And stupid Westerners accept this as a natural condition.
This is one reason you hear the assholes of the Syrian opposition fighting the Syrian army's onslaught chanting "Allahu Akbar" الله اكبر God is Great. The only rallying cry these people have to claim wanting to get rid of a dictator is a fundamentalist Islamic cry. How then can you believe their desire to be free as a genuine one?
In Tunisia - now ruled by fundamentalist Muslims after the Tunisian revolution - alcohol is increasingly banned, women are forced to wear the veil, and all the other accoutrements of an Islamic dictatorial theocracy are gradually been implemented in what used to be a secular dictatorship. Egypt is struggling with similar outcomes of its own revolution.
While I believe that this is a natural cycle - replace the existing dictatorships with religious ones - a few years or decades down the line, and the people of these countries will make an adjustment away from radical Islam. Just consider the French revolution. It took 80 years after 1789 for France to become a stable republic with the functioning of a democracy. It went through convulsions of barbaric revolutionary repression, resurgent empires and monarchies, before the dust settled and France became what we know it for today.
Therefore, I argue that the Syrian opposition - basically a Sunni fundamentalist Islamic movement - should not be helped by the international community. Let it fight its own war, and win if it can or lose if it must. If the international community steps in and helps, do not be surprised that the new Syrian government - whatever shape or form it takes - will make a turnabout and become an enemy of the very hands that rescued it. We have a saying in Lebanese: " ربي كلبك يعقر جنبك The dog that bites the hand that feeds it".
Let the Syrians earn their freedom. Let them earn it alone. Let them not owe it to anyone else. Because this is the very essence of becoming truly free. Helping the Syrian opposition now is a recipe for renewed hostility against the West two or three decades hence. The Nazis of the Arab world have never stopped complaining against the Western intervention of the post Ottoman collapse.... Those same Nazis will continue to complain for the next 100 years about any intervention that is made today to help them. They are ingrate haters of the West, no matter what the West does.
Finally, I don;t understand the premise on which is founded the imperative of US and European assistance. Why can't the fucking Saudis, Pakistanis, Egyptians, Indonesians, and other Arab or Muslim countries with vast resources and reservoirs of oil and money step in WITHOUT the US and Europe taking the lead? Why can't they immediately apply military pressure on the Syrian regime by, for example, flying a squadron and bombing strategic control and command targets of the Syrian regime's military? There is no reason whatsoever to believe the apocalyptic scenarios that many prophesy about such an intervention. Why should it be some American or British or French pilot sitting behind the commands of such a bomber to make it a "legitimate" operation in the eyes of the Syrian opposition and the international community?
Let the Syrian opposition fend on its own the vagaries of earning freedom for the Syrian people, and the international community should not feel the urge to intervene, because the Syrian opposition will later blame it and hold it responsible for decades to come.
