Wikileaks documents forced US officials to admit that Syrian opposition forces have been funded by the US at least since 2006. The official statement denies that the support was intended to overthrow the Assad regime.
BBC has posted a picture that it claimed were the dead children killed by an Assad government attack, but it turns out the picture was one taken years ago in Iraq. The UN observers says that the Syrian government's denial of involvement, blaming it on the rebels, is questionable because shells were found, and only the Syrian government has tanks, although there have been reports that rebels have captured tanks and are using them.
There are reports that the US is arming the rebels, but US officials deny this and state they are only providing intelligence regarding the trustwortiness of the different rebel groups. Odds are none of the rebel factions can be trusted, but we will back one.
I think we've been involved in a plan to overthrow Assad and then the Iranian regime for quite awhile, and mainstream "State" media are complicit in a cover-up by ignoring US covert involvement, refusing to vigorously investigate and report the facts.
I suspect that the Syrian intervention will become complicated close to the election, and a case will be made that America is in a very complex, dangerous, situation with Syria and Iran that calls for continuity of leadership. Imagine that. Somethings doesn't seem right about all this.
