    Let's stay realistic just. USA aren't after democracy in Syria now. Democracy has been smoking screen for them just. Actually they and their western allies have been long a watering mouth for Syria as rather huge potential recipient of western armaments.
    So far Damask has been relying mostly on China, Russia and Iran in the armaments supplies as you might know. I've been involved in servicing of the armaments deals with Damask on part of China. That's been good money for me and my big family and promising perspectives as well. I'm scary I may well be left without any soon!
    Americans and their western allies are on the side of the illegal militants opposing Asad now and they are set to pump them with the armaments to make them win. This victory would mean really huge dividends for western companies in future. It's a well-known fact that those militants are lead by leaders representing interests of the Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Qatar, American devoted allies in the region, all of'em ....... and buyers of their armaments as well.
    BTW When Clinton focused recently on some Syria destined deliveries of helicopters by Moscow (they haven't been confirmed so far as I know) she definitely had smth in mind. I guess American State Dep wants to introduce some sanctions to hit Russian firms trading in armaments. And they need some pretext just. I suspect that's been just a testing ball and they are going to hit China next.

    There is some serious ignorance going on here.

    Syria isn't going to buy arms from the west and it never was. Syria is an ally and client state of Russia. If it wants arms, Russia will provide them just as they are doing now. Russia maintains a major naval base in Syria.

    The US support's Assad's opposition because the US supports Al Quaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood just as the US did in Libya and Egypt. Russia supports Assad because it doesn't want Syria to turn into another Chechnya.

    Syria takes WMD out of storage: US: Situation incredibly dangerous
    July 13, 2012, As part of its ongoing war maneuver, Syria Thursday, July 12, this week drilled the firing of advanced Scud D ballistic missiles capable of carrying chemical weapons and nerve gas – a clear message from Bashar Assad that weapons of mass destruction are now in play to save his regime.

    Unfortunately for Syrian rebels and innocents in the Syrian populace, the U.S. is not gonna do much cause it's a election year. If Assad wants to cling to power awhile longer, he has an open window between now and November to ramp up the slaughter, cause the Obama administration isn't going to commit to doing anything overtly to intervene before the election. That leaves the U.N., which is as useless as bull-tits.
    You're correct, 'game-on'.
