    -The "Free Syria Army" is literally an army of militant extremists, many drawn not from Syria's military ranks, but from the Muslim Brotherhood, carrying heavy weapons back and forth over the Turkish and Lebanese borders, funded, supported, and armed by the United States, Israel, and Turkey. The latest evidence confirming this comes in the form of a report out of the International Institute for Strategic Studies where Senior Fellow for Regional Security at IISS-Middle East Emile Hokayem openly admits Syria's opposition is armed and prepared to drag Syria's violence into even bloodier depths.

    This report comes in sharp contrast to the propaganda fed via the corporate-media and the West's foreign ministers on a daily basis, where the violence is portrayed as one-sided, with Syria's President Bashar al-Assad "gunning down" throngs of peaceful, placard waving protesters. Just as in Libya where these so-called "peaceful protesters" turned out to be hordes of genocidal racist Al Qaeda mercenaries, led by big-oil representatives, fighting their cause upon a verified pack of lies, so too is Syria's "pro-democracy" movement which is slowly being revealed as yet another militant brand of extremists long cultivated by Anglo-American intelligence agencies, whose leadership is harbored in London and Washington and their foot soldiers supplied a steady stream of covert military support and overt rhetorical support throughout the compromised corporate media.

    UN makes it official - Syria in civil war...
    :eek:
    Syria now in a civil war with 4,000 dead: United Nations
    December 1, 2011 - Civil war has been the worst-case scenario in Syria since the revolt against Assad began eight months ago. Damascus has a web of allegiances that extends to Lebanon's powerful Hezbollah movement and Iran's Shiite theocracy, raising fears of a regional conflagration.

    Now look at Hezbollah. Hezbollah depends greatly on Syria in order to function, and to function as a militia. Syria is Hezbollahs’ strategic depth. The reason that Hezbollah can fight so effectively in 2006 – Israel can bomb Lebanon all it wants, but there are weapons depots in Syria from where Hezbollah can rearm. Hezbollah can drive over the border to regroup. It’s a clear and unmolested supply line – it’s a staging area.

    This is what civil war looks like. Did anyone really think that the govenment would just wave goodbye?
