“The West are supporting the SFA (Syrian Freedom army). The rebels are armed and financed by the West because so we are told we need to help the Syrian people to liberate themselves from the horrible dictator.

That doesn’t seem much of a liberation at all for all of those who have to flee the homes they have lived in for many generations at peace with their neighbours.”
