I've been wondering...what's your opinion on this?At first I thought it was just a typical case of Syrians rising up against a corrupted or ruthless tyrant.I used to hold Bashar Al-Assad in relatively high-esteem and then I started watching and reading about massacres committed by the Syrian army and security forces and government militia. But then again,I started watching and reading about how many people are pro-Assad and many are pro-government and I started wondering if this is a typical example of Arab Spring uprising or something hidden inside that uprising that we miss. First of all,most of the people who object are sunni muslims and we have to remember that Assad's Syria is a big thorn in USA and Israel's strategic and geopolitical plans in the Middle-East because it's also strongly allied and united with Iran and Lebanon's Shia majority. I saw some videos and read some articles of people from my faith,Orthodox Christians talking about the fear of an islamic jihadi regime kicking them out of the country or killing them if Assad's government falls.They also talk about how Assad keeps Syria united and the fear of Sunni militias attacking the Christian minorities.I also read that Orthodox,Catholic,Syriac and other Christians along with even some sunni muslims and Alewites are afraid of retribution by the armed militia and renegade army soldiers.In any case they speak of an islamic government establishment if Assad is removed from power and they win. On the other hand I see how the Syrian army brutally tries to smash down any opposition.But again in many videos I hear the typical "Allahu Akbar" said again and again and again.Armed anti-Assad groups showing off their guns while bearing islamic flags and wearing scarves and hoods to hide their identities just like the terrorists in iraq,afghanistan and chechnya did. So I am honestly very very confused about the whole situation. Stuff like this make me rethink the situation and think if Assad is better to stay on power.
