“Moscow sees Assad as a buyer of arms and host to a Soviet-era naval base.” – …and conversely the west sees Syria as potential buyer of their arms, Syrian oil becoming theirs, etc. You don’t think so, I guess, You think that the west is concerned about implementing democracy in Syria. Ever wondered why the west does not implement it in the absolute medieval monarchies belonging to their gang?

This article is designed to do no less than tug at the American heart strings while evoking strong emotions by casting disparaging remarks and negative characterizations of another nation’s prime leader. This is to be accepted as the new tolerance.

It also serves to detract the American population from an election which will have a direct impact on them for the next 4 years. BHO will get the nod because American voters are not good at learning and easily distracted. Not to mention they are ever hopeful.

This is a strong message from Turkey ,So Mr Ergogan is doing somethinh and the nato and allies going into Syria will be during summer not at the moment due to bad weather in the region.In my opinion the west will go in suddenly from syria and jordan but by tha t time homes may be empty and many toer cities and planty reffugies scattered in lebenon turkey and jordan.and What wil l happen to mr Assad I dont know.The alawite community in that region has to think and have a question from me do we go with assad or have a change otehrwise they will get a sunnidemocratic power put by the west instead of assad and their time is running similar to mubarek and ghaddafi but russians dont want another ghaddafi in uns plate.Turkey is doing a lot of behind doors work on PKK and doing a lot of nagotiations and arrests on KCK (City worsion of PKK)and the rural PKK fighters during the cold weather Turkish army is doing a very sensitive work to make democratic peace in south east turkey and Mr Barzani said dialoge is better than arms and Turkish gowernment is doing both dialogue behind doors and fight insurgance with in turkey during cold winter.But in Uludere unforseen events occured where several young people got killed and their families want the people that done this to be put on trial rather than compensation and things are little hot in that region ,same time in City of Van Turkey has opened its dooes to earth quacken Kurdish region and helped to every one while same time turkish jets bombed Qandil mountains and entered to un manned region of border between Turkey iran and Iraq to fight with PKK .

are armed activists any different from terrorist? both fight for a so called cause, try to proclaim their interests or rights by all means necessary, attack either government personnel or civilains, destroy property, act outside the law, etc etc.

for any soldier, when he’s assigned a task, either to go in and regain control or to defend a position…….and if during that process he faces resistance or fired upon……what do you expect him to do?…….he has every right to defend himself and retaliate……the objective is to complete the mission…..syrian soldiers like any others are not on an extermination mission as some may be implying with this propaganda……they are simply trying to regain control of homs……the moment the opposition lay downs their weapons, all this would be over in an instant……media is over exaggerating by taking the words of these armed activists a.k.a terrorists for granted.

seems like some corners don’t want a peaceful resolution on this…..preventing dialogue towards some truce……if a country proposes talks with the opposition, how could others reject it and say its unacceptable……what else is there beside that?

Only because the Republican party can’t get it’s defecations into one basket. 9 months to go, and if you look at the vote so far, there looks the possibility that the electorate can’t make up its’ mind on the “right” side of the aisle. Maybe all three could be president on different days of the week? We would have the wise man, the manager, and the priest. The Republican party will give BHO the election at this rate.

In the meantime, shells are falling is Homs neighborhoods. Why? Can anybody answer the why? Try to imagine in your suburbia of “Highlands Ranch” 155mm howitzer shells landing in the pool in the backyard, with the idea as to why. Maybe that will put it into a perspective that more will understand. For a second, put yourself aside, and think of others…

It’s not about taking sides, it’s about intervention as has been done in many, many places on the UN Mandate. It’s fish or cut bait time. Poop or get off the pot. Show us that Libya wasn’t all about oil, that it was actually about the humanity. Allow international press into Syria. Release satellite imagery of what is going on. Because one is either part of the problem or part of the solution…

Boatie, to the contrary, some Americans do learn and see truth of reality. That is why I no longer vote for the Masters of Deceit, propaganda and elitism, the Republican party. Example: let’s ignore the decreasing debt and increasing GDP under Bill Clinton. Likewise ignore that the housing price/mortgage bubble that popped and caused the financial implosion was engineered by largely Republican run Wall Street interests, and fueled by Republican voting social climbers going for the overpriced houses and ridiculous mortgages, to bolster their own social images.

Aside from that, who is naive enough to believe that Medvedev is in charge in Russia? He is of course the puppet of the gangster Putin, speaking Putin’s words while in fear of his own life if he strays from Putins’ commands.

So Boatie Bill, we are to believe that the Syrian dictator, whose family has been the sole ruler of the country for 42 years, and who has his army shelling and killing his civilians, is being cast unfairly in a bad light? This, from the one who says that Americans are poor learners when it comes to voting, and you expect us to believe your utter nonsense? I agree with Alfred, it would be interesting, if not fun, to sit back and watch the Russian (not Howitzer) large bore shells land in your back yard and on your home, then see how much non-interference you agree with.

Look at which countries are calling for no interference: the ones that historically have the least personal freedom and the most brutality toward their own citizens. It was only 24 years ago that the Chinese were firing on their own citizens, who were doing the terrible thing of speaking out for their own personal freedom in Tiananmen Square.
Think Putin is a great humanitarian either?

The Boatie Bill’s of the world might care more when it is them and their own children being blown apart.

This news is, for the 22 millions of Syrians, a very good one and they pray for their brave national troops who are risking their lives, these days, to end, once for all, the horrible crimes committed, since more than 10 months, by thousands of terrorists planted among us in Syria. They were activated against the Syrians, civilians and troops, when Pr. Obama started commanding the Syrian People to get rid of their free liberal System under which they use to live all in total harmony and peace. Actually it was a US war declaration against Syria so he cannot do the same to the Chinese People for example.
Unfortunately, the masters of these terrorists have full control on the Western UN, NATO and the Arab League. Therefore there is always a possibility for these masters to invade Syria, under any fake pretext, to keep terror in it (see Iraq, Sudan, Egypt and Libya… etc).

M. Sarkozy joins Ms. Nuland, of the Department of State in the US, in ‘recommending’ and ‘demanding’ that the Russians agree to the Arab League Plan – which formed the core of the last Resolution at the UN Security Council, and which Russia and China vetoed!

One cannot escape the conclusion that even in politics a ‘state of denial’ occurs. Probably the entire Security Council session receded in the memories of those who all but had the bombers ready for their pulverizing sorties over Damascus.

If US and France desire to see peace in Syria, wouldn’t a change in plan be required. One that directs their side in the war in Syria to start a dialogue with the Syrian regime?

In the absence of that, we are treated to horrific photos of the injured and the dead. Worse, one is no longer certain who injured them or who killed them due to the gaping credibility gap in everything we read or see about Syria.

Dear ayesee, I think you know that it was only 10 years when the White House was rewarded the Presidential Veto and his oil companies were saved from severe financial juridical cases hence facing bankruptcy (that is why Building 7 had to be destroyed too). Oh sorry, the US State Department said that the attacks were committed by genius/crazy terrorists and many hired actors, chosen with scary faces, have confirmed very well the story on our screens. Why not? Anywhere we meet criminals who are genius and idiot at the same time so they kill civilians for no gain but to celebrate their crimes and dance afterwards. Why not? Even a President of a great nation could anytime act like an idiot as it happened with Pr. Bush by having a clear doubt that the first crash was a terrorist attack and in his same speech he gave a national order to all US forces not to react in any way … so all America was put in halt waiting for the second plane to finish the attacks though it took more than 20 long minutes! By the way, after the second hit, ONLY 5 minutes were needed to fire a civil plane claiming being a part of the attacks). Have a nice day.

Dear VictorPurinton, I am afraid you look now like the dancers shown on the American’s screens while they were celebrating the horrible crimes on Sept 11. The difference is that they were just actors to give a ‘fake’ proof that the attacker’s heads were indeed savage (hence idiot) for killing thousands of innocent Americans for nothing in return (unless, in Western countries, ‘jealousy’ is a great reason to act like a real beast). Are you a mere actor or you are dancing now for real?
It seems you didn’t have the time to read my previous posts… Anyway, no matter how you are made to believe… Syrians stand with their free liberal System, their President and their national brave army. Why? You have to be personally in Syria (obviously not in Homs which was prepared as a military base for the well armed terrorists against the Syrian People). Who support these thousands of terrorists/beasts? The answer is very simple. Please look around and see those who are trying their best to send us bombs over our heads… as humanitarian aids :)

Take a good look at what’s going on in Libya right now and it will give you a good indication of what will happen in Syria once Assad has been deposed. Like Libya, the people of Syria have never had the opportunity to govern themselves. And like Libya the country will be tossed into a termoil that will take years, until another Assad rises to the top, to settle out. Until them it will be controlled by warlords and religious fanatics. And, like Libya, life will still not be good for the average person who just wants to get by in life. So sad.

Syria is nothing like Libya
It is a very different mozaique of religions and ethnicities and they have coexisted peacefully before the Assad regime. They were even united in their fight against the turk and french occupations.
The average Syrian is young, educated and ambitious. There is a large number of intellectuals who fled syria in search of prosperity in the US, Canada ect. The Assad regime protection for minority is nothing but propaganda. In fact, more than 2% out of the 10% christian minority left the country during his reign.

Syria will be much better off without Assad. They will open up the borders and trade. You will see an influx of Saudi investors and tourism will blossom once the situation is settled. The only loser will be the (elite) Alawite who will lose all the fortunes: cars, villas, security guards, boats ectt and will be rightfully prosecuted in court or killed on the spot.

Please have a closer look. Syrians used to live in total peace and safety till Pr. Obama declared war on them (around March 2011) by commanding them to get rid of their free liberal System. He was very sure to win this war quickly because his CIA forces already planted among us thousands of well armed terrorists (call them as you like) while the international media like Al-Jazeera worked day and night presenting their horrible crimes as if there is a revolution or civil war in Syria. As you see, the situation here has nothing to do with either hemisphere :)

The UN has now stopped estimating Syria’s death toll; it says confirming the data is just too difficult. Human rights groups place the total now dead around 7,000. UNICEF says that number includes at least 400 children, some of whom have been “arbitrarily arrested, tortured and sexually abused while in detention.” What’s Washington’s answer? After all the strength it has spent in vain—has decided that now is the time for a lighter approach.
Syria is Iran’s top ally, and the only Arab state at this point openly partnered with Tehran. But Bible prophesy says a divorce is coming between Iran and Syria. Syrian opposition chief Burhan Ghalioun has already pledged to cut military ties with Iran should he come to power.

Dear Thatguy1919.
So to you anyone looks for restoring the peace and safety in his country has to be an agent to some power.
Please, I beg you, let me know anything you saw it wrong on my posts. I am not a perfect man and it is always possible that I missed some facts while you didn’t.
By the way, which is bigger, an ENTIRE city as Homs or a little country known as iraq (small i)?
The brave US troops bombed, invaded and occupied Iraq. Also soon after and for too many years, many hundreds of Iraqi people (Muslim and Christian civilians of all sects) had to be killed or injured almost daily for one reason or another (based on tooth ferry stories on our screens).
Please try explaining to me why the national Syrian troops leave the Syrian people in the great cities living in peace?
Please try explaining to me why the millions of Syrians who know, exactly as you do, that some neighbourhoods in Homs are bombed and no one among them try saving those who fight their army? Don’t you know that they pray now for their brave troops to succeed in their mission in cleaning Homs once for all and as soon as possible from the imported beasts?
Most families around Syria have relatives in Homs and they were informed about the presence of well armed criminals (actually hired terrorists) who killed used to kill and terrorize many among them at random so that the media (mainly Al-Jazeera) can present their crimes against civilians and troops as if there were a revolution in Syria (which is the usual solid pretext to send humanitarian aids).
About 1982 in Hama, I personally knew a family on the side of who are known as Islamist brotherhood. Its big heads approved the killing of one young of them (he was newly married and had 2 little babies) because he refused to support their crimes at that time. So please remember, you are talking with a real Syrian who already knows all the good and the bad in his country.
By the way I am Christian and while I look always to know the full truth behind any scene, I never judge or accuse anyone. So in my life, I had no reason to fear, hate or fight any enemy in my life because sooner or later we will all pass away one after another no matter who is the winner :) It happens that I was born as a real human being and not like a survival one (guided by the survival of the strongest rule) like my dog for example.
Finally, would you please suggest me a better System than the actual one in Syria? I guess you are perfectly sure of your new System that it will be clean from any corruption (like it is the case now in Tunisia, Libya, Sudan, Egypt and Iraq… and the best example is the very clean System in USA… right?).

We should realize that there is a ’blow-back’ effect whenever we get involved in another country’s civil war.

Dear Shugdj.
Are you trying to say that the spread of the bloody chaos in Syria started suddenly because two countries (or more) are allied? To my knowledge Syria didn’t hurt other peoples more than countries said being civilized and democratic… etc. Iran didn’t invade and/or occupy any country as well. In fact, Iran was allied to the US White House in attacking Iraq for 10 years, in order to prepare it for the US invasion later. Please don’t think, even for a second, that it was for oil :)
Don’t you know that Iran helps since many years the US oil companies in keeping their oil price high (besides other great deals). The trick is very simple. Men on top claim they are on the edge of a war. This implies applying sanctions from both sides. Peoples in all sides have no choice but to work harder and pay more to their System (in America, to their banks and big companies owned by the Elite families). This trick was continuously adopted by the world’s leaders mainly in the last 10 years. That is why I wasn’t surprised seeing the gap between the majority in any country (starting from America) and their Elite group growing year after year. Perhaps I am wrong, but it seems that most men on power around the world have agreed to prepare their peoples for a global war. Now I wonder what has been prepared as a solid pretext to start the coming global war. Ten years ago, a few thousands of innocent Americans were sacrificed to create the series of “War on Terror” now the sacrifice must be much bigger to convince the Europeans and the Arabs to destroy each other. The role of the American people to join this war will come later as it was done in WW2.
You see, things are rather clear but there is no way to stop or even change any of what is already prepared by the world’s Elite for their ordinary peoples (in all sides, said in conflict).

For instance what could be the differences between Obama and Bush besides their skin colour and the different words used in their speeches?).
For the world to have a policeman is a great idea unless this policeman is a very corrupted one then it becomes a nightmare :)
Have a nice day.

Dear mario719.
I guess you meant all governments accused being brutal and oppressive by a great power should be replaced. Isn’t it the same as Hitler did to France? Hitler was a great power and surely saw France being ruled by a corrupted System. As a gentleman, he saved the French people exactly as the US Elite saved the Iraqi people. The only difference is that Germany is owned (I mean controlled) by the US Elite since the end of WW2 (much like all Europe) hence its great power is history now (this applies to France and UK). But the US Elite after their great success on Sept 11 (though the sacrifice was huge) became even more powerful (as rulers and businessmen) than before 2001. So naturally they have the right to accuse anyone in the world being brutal if not terrorist (In American, they have the right of the Presidential Veto).
As you see, since they have the power to defy governments and Systems, it is natural that a boss working in the media would have to face real bad days if he refuses to join them in what they do… :)
Perhaps it is time to sing again… What a wonderful world :)

Dear nirvichara.
If you look around closer towards people in America, Canada, Europe… and obviously in the Arab world, you would see that all suffer the same way. Since 10 years and after creating the series by the well written scenario titled “War on Terror” of which most of us watched its first episode commented by fiction stories, it was possible creating also any sort of crises mainly in the economy of any people. If you remember well, these financial crises started seriously (after 2001) in America. Then they hit the economy of the European people (starting from UK which is better controlled by the US Elite). At last, they hit the Arab world, one country after another; but excluding the few Arab countries, as Qatar, which were given a role to play as it was given to Germany against Europe in WW2.
You and I can be at best just nice observers… no more no less :)

To those who are real observers, today the same scenario which is followed too many times in Iraq just after its occupation, started here, in my own city. A car equipped with the same explosive materials used in Iraq after its occupation and obviously with a dummy driver (to play the suicide bomber in the crime story) was sent remotely (as for the planes on Sept 11) targeting many young soldiers. I think who plot these crimes are genius besides being beasts. They have always some actors playing the role of terrorist (refer to the international perfect crime in 2001) to cover their crimes. And as it was done in Iraq, first of all, the attacks aim all young soldiers of the invaded country. Only then, it will be time to kill the civilians as well almost daily.
On the other side, the US Presidential Intelligence Forces have to think 100 times more than they used to do while playing their bloody games in Syria. I am sure they already knew what I mean and that is why Obama urges for the 10th time the Turkish government to move its army against the Syrian People but the Turkish army is no more the criminal one when it has been deceived in the past by some Western countries (as it is exactly the case now).
Cheers.

What’s the difference? No matter which side the USA takes, we are eventually always on the wrong side. Thus, these arab spring civil wars are a lose – lose situations for the USA. Remember, these middle east Arab, Islamic, Muslim countries have been ruled by kings, dictators, or clerical zealots for about a thousand of years. With over a 40% illetracy rate, that have little to no understanding of the responsibilities or duties of citizens within a democracy. The educated and others want freedom but always fall back on their religious brainwashing, elect Islamic clerics who, themselves create a religious dictatorial theoracy like Iran. Now they begin to live by the code of the feud, with each side blaming the other for its cause, while in the name of counter revolution, revenge, or in the name of Jihad, they begin to murder Christians, Jews, other religious sects, and educated women and children. The new rulers are usually little more than brute barbarians, and with the new dictatorship, new next group of oppressed minorities start their new civil war. Thus the same cycle begins all over again, etc. Always remember, their deep down misguided religious beliefs casts the USA and other western democracies as the demon cause of all of their problems. So, lets get realistic, these Islamic civil wars will continue until the basic nature of their misguided dogamatic religion changes. In the meantime lets stay out of the frey. Some of their entire countries are not worth the life of one more American soldier. However, if they cause war against us or our allies, we should simply bomb them back to the stone age and stomp out the ashes. Monty Weddell Dallas, TX

Dear moweddell,
Your analysis is right in general. But, just for your knowledge, I am afraid it doesn’t apply on the Syrian People unless you have a personal experience with some of them directly (I wish to hear of it from you). Any tourist visiting Syria before Pr. Obama has started, since mid-March 2011, declaring the terror war against the Syrian People, was surprised how its people live in total harmony and peace and most of all in a very safe environment, day and night.
I guess you didn’t read any of my previous post on Syria and you didn’t hear clearly how Obama defied the free will of more than 22 million Syrians by commanding them to get rid of their free liberal System. Please imagine Obama asking the Chinese People to get rid of their President!!! I know he can never do it because it is a clear declaration of war. So, in reality, not on your little screen, there is no revolution or civil war in Syria. There is just a real war between Syrians (both civilians and troops) against well armed terrorists planted among them by the US Presidential Intelligence Forces who do their best, since then, to win their declared war against Syria exactly as they won their war against the Iraqi People. I guess, you cannot believe that before mid-March 2011, Syrians used to live free and safe much more than if they were in America, mainly after the great success of the White House in their Hollywood perfect crime on Sept 11 by which all Americans have lost gradually their political freedom and their democracy became history till these days. It doesn’t matter now if the Americans know or not the truth of what really happened on that tragic day because about 90% of them are made powerless and the remained 10% still gain from this crime (Do I need mentioning the US oil companies for example?).
I am a Christian Syrian. I personally live the unconditional love towards all others; friends and enemies. So the image of Allah (or alike in other religions) that may ask, in some situations, to fight some enemies, cannot exist in my reality. So, my Muslim friends used to say: “We are very sorry for you. You have to go to Hell after you die while we will be in Heaven. We will miss you there.” Do you think this can happen in any other Muslim country than Syria? I guess not. But who already massacred thousands of their own citizens for power and money and keep celebrating, with a cold blood, their perfect crime yearly at Ground Zero, won’t find hard bombarding any foreign people. On the other hand, I have the feeling that the Holy Spirit is protecting Syria during the last 10 months despite the billions of dollars invested in both the well armed terrorist groups (local and imported from abroad in thousands) and the international media (mainly Al-Jazeera in Qatar) for the sole mission… destroying the land of peace and love… Syria. I wonder how long the US Elite will take to know that Syria is not Iraq or Libya and its destruction will stimulate real revolutions against them in America and Europe in which they will have no way to keep hiding themselves behind … the famous conspiracy theory.
Have a nice day.

Dear Ed57,
What you said comes usually from a wise man but in Politics wisdom has no place. In Politics, power and money matter only and at any cost (best example, the Hollywood perfect crime on Sept 11; a huge sacrifice for a huge profit in term of power and money till our days).
That is why I can never work in Politics. Instead, I use to work for my daily bread only. To me, being famous or rich is my last worry. And while I live this way, I don’t need creating lies continuously and keep remembering them always…just in case :)
Cheers.

Dear LynCe,
Do you mean you are looking for a job as a terrorist in Syria? I am just kidding. You know, in Syria, civilians and troops are facing since more than 10 months thousands of well armed terrorists planted among us. They were activated when Pr. Obama declared war against the Syrian People. I guess, you didn’t hear yet Pr. Obama commanding the Syrian People to get rid of their free liberal System under which they used to live all in total harmony and peace. In fact, Syria before the actual US attacks was among the safest countries in the world. Oh sorry, I forgot to say that the attacks follow now the new method adopted by the CIA after the great success of the White House in their Hollywood perfect crime on Sept 11 which is by spreading terror inside a country. How? There are two preferred scenarios; attacks by hired terrorists so-called radical Islamist and by suicide bombers (even a kid knows that there is no need for any person to drive a car or trigger a bomb; everything can be controlled remotely). Even in the past, when there were real individual suicide bombers, mainly in Israel, they were usually sent to any serious gathering asking for peace with Palestinians. This was possible by the collaboration of both intelligences; Palestinian and Israeli so that the Israeli people can be kept always in a state of alert. Why? It is no more a secret that Israel is just another US military base under the direct control of the US Elite families (via some Jewish leaders of course). As you know, the US Elite defeated the great Iraqi army in about one week but keep looking for peace talks with some Palestinians fighters since 60 years. In brief, the art of Politics is to know how to divide people in order to better control them all and I cannot convince myself that the men on power are naive in creating real conflicts with their counterparts around the world for the good of any people. Now the US and Iranian governments play a war game on our screens so that oil prices can stay high and the sales of weapons flourish. Before Iran, it was Iraq. Before Iraq it was Afghanistan. Could you know which was before the latter?… you are right… Communism… and so on.
Cheers.
