Assad DID need to go...

And for the record, I never said Assad wasn't going to fight ISIS, I said he would first use the existence of ISIS as a cudgel to scare his own people (you know, his own citizens that he was actively bombing/starving/poisoning) back in line -- If anything, he carried them a few rounds... I mean, he only killed a half-million of his own people at the minimum but who gives a shit, right??

Too bad there's nothing in your screed about Russia intentionally targeting civilian populations in airstrikes, but luckily DU has a search function...

Fun Fact: ISIS wasn't the only group fighting against Assad, but the U.S. news media (and it's general viewership) doesn't do complex narratives well, do they?

I could go much farther, but I have other things on my mind I'm short on time and patience, got a busy day at the office, and I'm not entirely sure this OP was in good faith -- So I'll just implore you to do your own research on Syria before I cut to the chase and put you on ignore...

Adieu

Well, let me leave you this parting gift:
