Has it been the West's plan to back the Rebels since they certainly haven't supported Assad? Instead they've consistently demonised Assad in the media... Lybia style. So what will they try now?....
Plan B... drive a newly created "Terror" force onto Syrian territory then launch air-strikes on Syrian infrastructure which they can easily claim is held by the Islamic State Terrorists and these actions will help Assad. So let me get this straight, we are helping get rid of these supposedly dug-in enemies by bombing the people we are now trying to help?
Never mind that the very act of waging war in another Sovereign State without the invitation for military aid by that State or with the agreement of the UN Security Council to engage in obvious "Self-defence" is ILLEGAL.
When international law gets in the way of your own agenda, war crimes don't matter especially when it's not happening in your country.
This Syrian steak is smelling awfully fishy!
