    The Syrian 'implosion' was started by design. Powers wanting Bashar's pro Russia, tiltedtowards Iran regime out had been wanting this unrest for sometime now. It seems though that this is spiraling out of control.

    My opinions on the *hot mess* in Syria, have changed quite abit since we lst started hearing news of it. I now think, just let them do what they do best! We need to stay out of it.
