I believe OP is asking What is going on? Rhetorically as Syria at the moment looks a lot like Hell.

If you don't understand what's happening then why do you want Assad to be executed?

Thankyou for that comment smart ass. I believe OP is asking What is going on? Rhetorically as Syria at the moment looks a lot like Hell.
The OP doesn't understand the situation but at the same time calls for the death of Assad ? This is a text book definition of bandwagon opinions.
I hate bandwagon opinions.
It is the bane of every debate/discussion you could have. Every once in a while someone comes along in the middle of a discussion that he doesn't understand the topic at hand so he just spews out his own regurgitated mainstream (often ill-informed) view.
Of course this time the OP is asking for information, but I couldn't help pointing out how people have an annoying tendency to tack on such opinions
Now to actually contribute :
The reasons why this 'war' started is not as interesting or as relevant now but what is interesting is why this stalemate has occurred. What is interesting is how both sides are stuck in an ever increasing cycle of despair of brutality and bloodshed not as a result of ideology but for survival. This despair leads to ever increasing brutality from both sides, the rebels can't back down since they would be hunted down and decimated by Assad's force and vice versa. It's kind of like both sides are going down the river in The Heart of Darkness. Now that is more interesting and worthy of discussion.
