My opinion is the American government encouraging the rebels to bring down a legitimate government. Not a great or well known plan to maybe destabilize the middle east to control terrorism, but if you have a good look at what has happened is, in Yemen and Egypt, letting the radicals run the country and causing more head aches and more enemies for the U.S. . After all they have been taken over by Muslim extremists, well done Obama.
By war I guess you mean the Syrian uprising. Well Syria is under the rulership of an evil dictator. But I think they in the midst of a power struggle with another evil dictator. Either side wins, and they will resume their war on all infidels, especially the sovereign and peace loving state of Israel.
