“ Welcome to the Middle East. So it has always been. There are no “freedom fighters.” There are just factions jostling for their own power and their own gain.” Very Orwellian!
Ouch! I am forced to re-evaluate my beliefs about the current sate of the middle east, again! I had believed that the pro-democracy freedom fighters would be an improvement on Assad’s regime, but I thought the same thing about replacing Saddam Hussein too, and I was wrong there.
