    Do you remember when, a few days/weeks after the Benghazi attacks, hundreds of residents who lived in Benghazi actually literally ran the suspects out of the city? Or how Muslims stand watch for Christians as they pray, and vice versa, in Egypt?

    You know, during the American Revolution, the French could have just said "those British colonies in America are always going to be a hotbed, we should just let them fight it out amongst themselves."

    The US just became a good deal more committed:

    CIA, other foreign agencies on the ground in Syria

    The CIA contingent is more than likely these guys: Special Activities Division, who were the first American forces on the ground after 9/11. The Israeli and Jordanian contingents are even more interesting-especially that Israel apparently feels comfortable enough with the Syrian resistance leadership to provide training and equipment.

    edit: less silly descriptive article for the Special Activities Division.

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/23/muslim-brotherhood-egyptian-court Heres the news on the muslim brotherhood which is now banned in egypt. The good and the bad news.

    The good news is the muslim brotherhood is being banned for awhile because the bad news is The egyptian goverment for over 50 years has tried to ban and dissolve the muslim brotherhood and yet they still manage to survive the worse then they are now. Its movement under the exstance of nasser had it alot worse then they did now!

    If you are to ban the muslim Brotherhood you would only force it to go underground and years later they could either come back or the spirt of the brotherhood would form into muitiple groups. The are better organzied then al-qaeda!

    If also have feeling when egypt gets its next election in the early 2014 of januray there could be a more stricker salafists/taliban like state to rise in egypt.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egyptian_parliamentary_election,_2014

    Take a look at wikipedia, There are alot of salafists and islamists offshoot groups that could come in power!

    Even secularist parties are just as bad because we could have another gadaffi or another saddam hussian regime. Either way both secular ultra nationalists and religous zealots hate America and Israel!

    Here are almost are many other salalfists, islamist, librael, and nasserite groups of political parties in egypt! look on the bottom screen of what I highlighted and clickk on it

    Everybody hates America and Israel in the Middle East. There's nothing special about that. That's Tuesday.

    I'll take secular nationalists over religious zealots any day of the week, myself. They prefer conventional wars to suicide bombs.

    So, 2 years, 6 months, 3 weeks, and 1 day later, this is what happens when civilians are injured in battles between the rebels and the Syrian Army:

    They die. Usually while trying to reach medical care.

    Did anyone hear about one of the happenings in Syria, quite recently?

    The Syrian "Electric" army recently hacked all of Qatar's (tiny peninsula by the UAE) websites because they're a supporter of the rebellion, replacing it with a photo of Bashir al Assad. But they're back now.
