To provide a balanced news diet, here are the various opinions from mostly non-Syrian perspectives compiled by Yazan Al-Saadi:

  • The (Arab and non-Arab) anti-imperialist: "I accept the burning of Syria if Palestine is liberated."

  • The (Arab and non-Arab) pro-imperialist: "I accept the burning of Syria if our civilizing mission endures."

  • The pro-Syrian regime: "I accept the burning of Syria if Assad remains."

  • The anti-Syrian regime: "I accept the burning of Syria if Assad leaves."

  • The mainstream leftist: "I accept the burning of Syria if (Western) empire is defeated."

  • The mainstream rightist: "I accept the burning of Syria if it keeps the (non-Western) barbarians away."

  • The Islamist: "I accept the burning of Syria if an Islamic state is established."

  • The sectarian: “I accept the burning of Syria if my sect survives.”

  • The hedonist: “I accept the burning of Syria if it doesn’t put a damper on weekend parties.”

  • The war profiteer: “I accept the burning of Syria if I can make sweet cash out of it.”

  • The liberal: "I accept the burning of Syria if capitalism and pseudo-democracy Western-copy-cat state is established."

  • The Russian and Western states: "I accept the burning of Syria if our interests are maintained."

  • The neighboring countries: "I accept the burning of Syria if it keeps any movement for self-determination of the masses away from our borders."

  • The Zionist: "I accept the burning of Syria if it distracts from our (incremental) genocide of the Palestinians."

  • The iNGO: “I accept the burning of Syria if that’s what my donors want.”

  • The animal-rights activist: “I accept the burning of Syria if the poor animals are saved.”

  • The curators: “I accept the burning of Syria if the precious ruins in Palmyra are preserved.”

  • The fashionistas: “I accept the burning of Syria if I can still buy cool Syrian outfits for low prices.”

  • The war tourist: “I accept the burning of Syria if I can watch.”

  • The foreign correspondent: “I accept the burning of Syria if I can win a Pulitzer.”

  • The arm-chair activist: “I accept the burning of Syria if I can still write Facebook statuses about it.”

  • The nihilist: “I accept the burning of Syria.”

And finally, the Syrian layperson: "Holy f#@! will people stop wanting us to burn and actually help us survive?"

the issue is there's 3 factions that all want eachother dead and the solution to make them stop burning syria is to introduce a new faction to burn syria, other than that there's not a ton to do
