Comments need be withheld at this point from the majority of you, your opinions are invalid.

Al Qaeda is a necessary evil?

What do you think these idiots are going to do if they would happen to win? All it is to them is another base of operations to then send their suicide bombers out into the world.

"Actually, we should help whichever side is losing just enough to maintain a balance of power and keep the fight going."

Nope. Don't care what "good" they do. They are an enemy to the United States.

I care about the civilians in the crossfire, that have not pledged allegiance to the rebellion. Like I said, let 'em work it out themselves.

We shouldn't be sending either of the sides anything whatsoever. There is no good side here.

Actually, we should help whichever side is losing just enough to maintain a balance of power and keep the fight going.

"I'm torn. The Assad regime treats the people like crap, so they're bad, but the rebels are Al Qaeda, (we really need to stop backing them) so they're just as bad."

I am pretty sure not every Syrian that wanted to stand up to Assad is linked with Al Qaeda. From watching a number of these documentaries the Nusra Front who are Al Qaeda linked are the best trained and most powerful of all the militia standing up to Assad. I think they are a necessary evil.

@auburnjunky

"the rebels are Al Qaeda"
Are you really torn? Or are you just desperately looking for any feeble excuse you can find not to give a crap?

I say, let em tear each other apart.

@earplay, I have been following it too. It is extremely interesting to see the real images of war from the front lines. I have seen footage of a Syrian rebel firing at a tank from a roof, and rejoicing when he hit. On another film you can see the result, where a soldier opens the the door to the tank a huge jet of fire lights up and all you can see is some guy running down the street with arms in the air and burnt clothes.

Even if we don't understand the culture, the ideas...we can understand the fear and the love and the anger. No one deserves to 'live' like this.

Let's see, on one side we have insane violent barbarian fascists, and on the other side we have insane violent barbarian Islamists. Who do you root for in that contest? I think we should do everything we can to keep the fighting going till they all kill each other.

I've been following the fighting in Syria for weeks on YouTube. The recordings are historic in a way because never has a war been recorded in such detail and intimacy. In the posts you are likely to see anything from acts of extreme bravery to cruelty, combat deaths, executions, torture, desecration of bodies and the most horrific wounds. And then there are the torn bodies of children. The mothers carrying their mortally wounded and dead children. And you hear the sounds of war and death and grief. Too bad, too bad... it is just too bad.
