    I feel bad for the Syrian people who are trying to get rid of their dictator, and are being used by the US/West. Looking at the bigger picture, the recapture of Duma is another defeat for US-backed militants. The US is seeking the destabalization of Syria through its destruction. The Syrians are victim sand will gain nothing at the end, even if Assad was removed. The anarchy that will be brought about in Syria will prove disasterous to Syria, Israel, Jordan, and Lebanon. The more unstable the Syrian regime becomes, the less secure its borders will be. And if anyone wonders why is the US doing this, the answer is simply because that is all what the US foreign policy can do: destruction, instability, and conflict management.
