    To all those connected to the Syrian war. First of all I would like to go right in to the facts. The Aramaic people of Syria or the Arabic spring was just a simple movement or protest to King Assad for one to have hope for a better future or progress or Modernization. This is always a righteous goal. I submit that this was easy to accommodate by a simple minimum wage increase and some Human Rights and hopefully some Equal Rights. The facts are that King Assad is spending more on war than he ever would have by helping his people have a better future. But now because you chose war, you have to hide underground. What I would like to see immediately is a seize fire and everyone coming to the table for some good ole fashion diplomacy here. Because on your present coarse I see either the country being split in half or the genocide of all your own people and suicide bombings for all of your futures and a very long war. To where no one wins. There has been to many killed already, innocent men, women and children. This war could go on for a very long time unless everyone comes to the table for peace. But the very first thing you have to do is stop killing one another and all of the outside interference like Rockets and Mig fighters to stop. The Arab spring people have a human right to defend themselves from being wiped out! No one is ever going to compromise for peace as long as the Rockets and Fighter bombers are killing people, Women and children. Are you telling everyone you do not have the intellect for compromise. So what’s it going to be King Assad, Iran and others? These are Human beings here. By ignoring this at this point is only going to make things worse! Lets all stop what your doing and come to the table for a fair deal. To continue this is just foolish. Only through fairness will you ever achieve peace!
