i couldn't find a link to the original study, but basically a NATO sponsored study showed that 70% of the surveyed syrian population supports assad over the FSA (rebels)


its painfully obvious that the western media has their own agenda.


what are your thoughts?

Yes. It's also so strange how the incumbent in third world democracies always seems to get such an improbably high percentage of the votes

Lmao I hope TS was being funny
The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) is the national official news agency in Syria. It was established in 1965. It is linked to the Ministry of Information and has its headquarters in Damascus.

Does it really matter?

I mean, I don't want to sound like a pessimist here but seriously, that country is SO messed up (pretty much that entire Middle East at this point too) that would changing something really make a difference? Especially with accounts saying that the rebels could be just as bad, if not worse, than the regime they are fighting against?

The whole situation there just seems to be getting worse and worse one each side. I don't think there really is a good answer to give, or a solution for that matter.

Convenient you couldn't find a link to the original study


I've been looking around a bit but all I can really find are news articles (published by sources around that area) the cite it but don't give any sources. The closest thing I could find was an article on the World Tribune, but that didn't cite any type of sources either. Kinda weird considering those types of studies are pretty easy to find. I'll do some more digging.

Edit: tons of articles listing Wikipedia as a source LMFAO

I don't really care, they've been killing each other for 2000 years for no real reason, the British couldn't stop them, the Soviets couldn't stop them, and we can't stop them from killing each other. It's like they enjoy killing each other, its insane.

I say let them wipe themselves off the face of the Earth, it'll be a much more peaceful place.

Assad is a dick.

The rebels are a clusterfuck. I can't believe people are still referring to them as one entity.

Is anyone surprised that Assad remains pretty damn popular?

you're saying when most people are asked whether they are with a dictator or a rebellion in a country where they have no voice, they say they're with the dictator? shocking

If it's between a dictator and a group of rebels, I'll just go ahead and say that I'll side with the rebels.

There have been quite a few reports coming out lately that a lot of those guys are from various extremist groups and not actually Syrian nationals. Lots of Al-Qaeda types from the looks of things.

Like I said before, I don't think there is really a "good' or "bad" side here. Both sides have some pretty bad people doing some pretty bad things.

At least that's what I've been reading the last few months. Who knows if it's true or not. That whole situation is ****ed beyond belief.

You're surprised that the western media is biased against a government that is little more than a authoritarian puppet of Iran?

My statement was more general. If there's a situation with rebel vs. dictator, go ahead and put me down on the rebel side. I like an underdog.

Realistically though, I couldn't give two shits about Syria. Whoever said they've been doing this for 2000 years is right. It's not like any of it really matters for them.

Do you live on a runway or something?!

No I live in St Albans, I thought I'd made that clear. Have you never heard of the concept of roundness? It's how circles get away without having corners.
