well it would seem Europe and us. See they found this huge oil and gas find off shore of Syria* a while back. Qatar* wants to take over and use the Muslim brotherhood as they can negotiate with them and build a land pipeline to Europe. This will stop Europe from having to buy the natural gas from Russia who is supplying it right now. Libya was about the same but Qaddafi wanted the other OPEC Arab nations to only accept gold for the oil*. Tiny Libya had 60% of the gold reserves that the British empire has. He also gave the people free Gas, education and women, free health care and subsidized housing and had been a model citizen since Bush and that is what the state department reports said about him , until we bombed them and they have been altered now and he is a 'bad guy'. Ironic. These links show what is going on and how Obama was able to use R2P*, which is a new deal the UN came up with to make sure another Rwanda didn't happen. but now the UN has doubts as to what Susan Rice was screaming about Libya in the UN to have it authorized to bomb them because of the paid mercenaries* that have taken over. They were not 'rebels' just like in Syria, paid terrorists we are supplying and other. The weapons came from Libya and directed from Benghazi(. Enjoy and have a great weekend.

The Islamist sects involved in Syria have been killing each other for 1,381 years since the death of the war lord Muhammad in 632 AD.
There is no reason to expect that they would quit now.
There is no way to kill that they won't use.
The simplest explanation for the beginnings of the Sunni-Shi’a war of secession, upheaval, and chaos (Fitna) and the political power is the disagreement concerning the succession of Muhammad and control of the caliphate.
Islam emerged as both a religious and a political movement and conflicts about leadership also concerned both aspects. The difficulty of defining the religious and political dimensions of Islam can be traced back to its origins and presents a persistent problem.
Many of Muhammad's relatives and companions were involved in the power struggle after the death of Muhammad.
For thirty years after Muhammad's death, the various factions of the Islamic faith were embroiled in a civil war which produced several sects or branches defined by which of the interpretations they thought was the rightful interpretation.
Sunni interpretation: Abu Bakr, the Prophet's close friend and father-in-law of Islamic prophet Muhammad was the rightful successor of Muhammad.
Shi’a (Shiite) interpretation: AlÄ« ibn AbÄ« TÄlib, the cousin and son-in-law of Islamic prophet Muhammad was the rightful successor of Muhammad.
Iran and Syria are bound by two factors: religion and strategy.
Iran is the world's most populous Shiite Muslim nation. The Syrian government is dominated by Alawites, a Shiite offshoot, and the rebels are dominated by Sunnis.
That connection has bound them for quite a while. Iran counted on Syria as its only Arab ally during its eight-year war with Iraq. Iraq was Sunni-dominated.
The last thing Iran wants now is a Sunni-dominated Syria -- especially as the rebels' main supporters are Iran's Persian Gulf rivals: Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
For Iran, Syria is also a strategically key ally. It's Iran's main conduit to the Shiite militia Hezbollah in Lebanon, the proxy through which Iran can threaten Israel with an arsenal of short-range missiles.
In 2009, the top U.S. diplomat in Damascus disclosed that Syria had begun delivery of ballistic missiles to Hezbollah, according to official cables leaked to and published by WikiLeaks.
So, it's in Iran's interest to see al-Assad's regime remain intact.
Western intelligence officials believe the Islamic Republic has provided technical help such as intelligence, communications and advice on crowd control and weapons as protests in Syria morphed into resistance.
A U.N. panel reported in May that Iranian weapons destined for Syria but seized in Turkey included assault rifles, explosives, detonators, machine guns and mortar shells.
Ayham Kamel of Eurasia Group believes the Iranians must be alarmed that the tide is turning against al-Assad.Source(s): World History And some information from: http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/29/world/meast/syria-ir...

George Walker Bush. He is to be blamed for every problem that exists in this world today. This includes, but is not limited to...the war in Syria, global warming, under-paid fast food workers, racial tensions and mad cow disease.

The US and the old USSR. We turned the Middle East into our own Chess game back during the Cold War, then when all the major players left total chaos broke loose leading to Military regimes.

0bama has been arming the rebels for over a year .
One has to assume without 0bama's funding and arming them ,,, there would not be a civil war right now .
