    “This really is one of those situations in life where all the options are bad — but you still have to choose.”

    So saith Neil Ellwood Peart.

    “the democratic and tolerant wing of the FSA.”

    Don’t kid yourself. There aren’t six democratic and tolerant people in the entire country. It is the middle east, it is just as tribal as pre-Columbian America

    I think the best possible outcome would be breaking up Syria into a bunch of ethnic/religious cantons with borders patrolled by UN peacekeepers. Neither side wins, no massacres which are the inevitable result of a victory by one side.

    If the resistance wins they will massacre the Christians in Syria. Hence I pray that Assad survives, and I thank God for the help of Russia. The USA is on the side of evil and the side of its own worst enemies. I will charitably attribute this to well-meaning stupidity rather than give in the many conspiracy theories afloat these days.

    The innocents massacred by the Assads over the decades thank you for your prayers. Very Christ-like of you.
