Russia is already sending arms to Assad; I doubt they will do more with the rest of the world on the other side, and persuading them to stop supporting the criminal.
Why is assad killing people? Is it because his nation was flooded with arab immigrants that they dont want there and the flooding was so numerous that they are now the "majority", or is assad lagitimatly killing his own people like the russians did in WW2 (stalin was way crazyer than hitler). Baring in mind that the Jews were not native germans and the german people wanted them gone as many of them controled much of the nations money supply. "Terrorist" is kind of a subjective term. Germany actually tried to deport them but couldent.
A similar thing happened in Bosnia, the native people were tired of the influx of immigrants but they did not have the tech to keep from being bombed by the USA. I dont think this is just an issue of Russia selling arms, russia hates the influx of arabs and the further this gets pushed it will reach a breaking point and once russia is forced from playing nice guy checnia will be the first to get gassed. I dont know what china has to do with anything, who wants to use a gun thats made in china lol. Russia also hates china, China is lucky they get to play in the world affairs once the singing of kumbia is done they will be pushed out, they have not had an original idea since fire works, they are exploited for their cheap labor and thats it.
We seroiusly cant afford to get involved, however if a real deal war sparks off it will revitalize our manufacturing, weapons development, basicly everything that made this nation great after WW2, but the war needs to be MAJOR or it will pile us in so much debt we will never recover. A total destruction of chineese infrastructure as well as most of the mid east and some of russia.
If TOTAL destruction of major forign infrastructure does not occure then it will just be another pee match in a 3rd world nation wasting money. We need a leader that will send all these CEO's that built factories in china that utilized american intellectual property to a special prison where they are killed, if the world is at war they will not be safe anywhere.
