    keeping in mind, that every coup required supporters. and these same people supported their previous leaders. and now they think he isnt good enough. they replace him, and then want to try again. a president isnt magic. as many times as you replace a leader, the country wont instantly change to the best. now if assad is gone, tomorow, how many years before the syria returns to the economic state it was in before the conflict, 20-30-40 years? i fail to see how these people wrecked their country, to fix it. you cant heal an amputated arm. good luck to all syrians, they proved to be the dumbest out of all arab states. unlike iraq, they had a clear view of what a civil war does to a country, and unlike libya, they had 2 clear as day examples, while libya had only 1. whats the point of freedom, if you have no more home left to live in?
