http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casualties_of_the_Syrian_civil_war Here you can look up the death toll, no of refugees, etc. If you blame all on the rebels, then who are the pilots in the Syrian fighter planes?? This war creates instability, which is very much against the wish of any (western) power. This is why the US (not Israel) and Turkey wanted to intervene (blocked by Russia and China). I know that millions of muslims in the world (except for in Turkey and in Jordan) share your views. They blame 'the west' (and Israel) and never say 1 bad word about Assad. Can you explain to us why? I simply can't comprehend it and I never get straight answers when I ask. Also, why do you prefer to talk in terms of "good" and "bad" instead of putting the bare facts on the table? Are followers of Abrahamic religions afraid of reasoning on the basis of facts? As a kafir I would like to understand why one would deny facts. Thank you for explaining it to me.
