had assad stepped down like mubarak, the christian and alawite civilians would be prone to mass attacks and rapes like the un-announced post mubarak frenzy. the minorities support assad because he has maintained their rights over the years from the join us or leave group which managed to reduce the christian population of iraq to a fraction. like i said, read some more, various sources. just like myself, you might change your stance. i was pro revolution in syria untill i saw the remnants of western intervention. when american allies who are dictators themselves start criticizing assad's government who mind you, was more free than the american allies. something was fishy.
