Next time Syrian rebels try to harm american personel in Syria Damascus will be turned into dust along with the rest of the country no survivors.

Western democracies have nothing to do with it Ziad Ghannam. Syria has never been a progressive country especially since Syrians don't have a spine. We do enjoy the pretty female refugee young women in Britain though. It's amazing what Syrian refugee women will do for food and shelter and there's an endless supply of them. I own 3 of them.

The fascist "western democracies" and their dogs in the Syrian goverment have destroyed Syria

The Syrian population far outnumbers the Syrian government.The only ones who can change things are Syrian citizens by overthrowing the regime.

My country will never be a peaceful place as long as Islamists are in our government. Wages here in Damascus aren't very much so it's hard to survive.

actually a very considerable good salaru in syria is 50$ and no the prices aren't accurate. rent is way lower than that for example (But still is hogher than the net salary)
the war sadly isn't over and hope to pray for us

Is the average net salary really $80? Does this prices are accureate?
Is war still going on there or sick islamists was already wiped out?
