The Next Stage in the Destruction of Syria

The Next Stage in the Destruction of Syria The rebel attacks on the cities of Damascus and Aleppo were, in actuality, meant to convince the western media that the rebels are near victory, with the hopes of attracting more direct military support from abroad. In reality, however, the attacks in Damascus were instantly crushed by the Syrian government, but the U.S. media predicted “victory just around the corner” for the rebels.    

Suddenly Syria is becoming a U.S. presidential topic of debate.  Republicans have accused Obama of “outsourcing” the Syrian conflict, refusing to be involved when the rebels deserve extra support (guns mainly). But Obama is the principal cause of this humanitarian catastrophe. Middle East expert
 Robert Fisk explains:  

“While Qatar and Saudi Arabia arm and fund the rebels of Syria…Washington mutters not a word of criticism against them. President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, say they want a democracy in Syria. But Qatar is an autocracy and Saudi Arabia is among the most pernicious of caliphate-kingly-dictatorships in the Arab world.”

I just don’t understand the justification of this. How would we react if “rebels” funded and armed from a foreign nation, came here to overthrow our government? Wouldn’t we also react in a similar way, wouldn’t the attackers be “instantly crushed” by our own government?
The only sense I can make out of this is that we are trying to get Iran involved by provoking or outright ousting the Syrian government.
