I'd say my feelings on these matters are similar to yours. Assad is the Big Bad, to use a TV trope. But just because a group of people are fighting him does not automatically make them the Big Good, to use another trope.

Let's not split hairs here. If you really think Saddam Hussein was good for Iraq then just say so and we can go from there.

If you're going to make stuff up please don't post here. Or in this forum for that matter. There's enough of that already. An opinion is fine but when you start using numbers, people tend to assume they're statistically accurate.
