This is why we in the West ought not to take sides, over there, in any of their conflicts. Period.

    The Syrian Network for Human Rights is funded by anti-Assad interests from the USA, UK, and Turkey. See #3 here:

    They can (and do) make up any statistics they wish. By SNHR’s own admission, they are anti-Assad, and don’t include in their numbers ‘government deaths’ (whatever that means).

    Ah.

    Interesting.

    Well, I don’t like Baathist dictators like Assad or Saddam Hussein, and I also don’t like ISIL.

    I still say we do well to stay entirely out of it.

    And to heck with taking in so-called ‘refugees’ who take cheerful selfies, argue they need more money, and are being sent weapons.

    Send them back, is what Europe should do, ditto Uruguay and us.

    A curious thing: the first time I ever read about the present Pres. Assad was in the pages of Vogue back when he was an optometrist or optomologist or whatever in London, and his dad was still dictator in Syria.

    This probably had to do with the Mrs.– the glossy women’s mags used to do a lot of stories on the Jordanian queen, back when I read then at the turn of the millennium.

    Speaking of gaywad reading habits, I also perused Warren Christopher’s memoirs at that time. He wrote about Assad Senior, noting his violent past but (as I remember it) characterizing him basically as a charming, go-along-to-get-along type.

    The hype long ago was that the son made a deal with the devil when he inherited his father’s chair, quickly becoming mired in Macbeth-like violence. I guess that’s possible, but– like Eric, I find so much to distrust now.

    I have never bought the gas attack narrative from a couple of years ago. If Stalin in ’41 and Hitler in ’45 abjured their generals’ pleas to deploy gas on the battlefield, and Assad knew he had a “red line” drawn against him by the West, why would he go and launch gas-laced Scuds in his own capital?

    The Israel-America pleas to “oust Assad and fight ISIS” are the height of absurdity– go into a Middle East Civil War and FIGHT BOTH SIDES?!? lolzlzlzlz

    Syria may be the meta-absurdity of our time: it’s a conflict more historically important than the Iraq Wars, and largely a creation of the EUSSAsrael, and a proxy for destroying Europe demographically and promoting WWIII against Russia, constantly in the news, where every talking head cries for intervention, oblivious to America’s failures in Iraq and Afghanistan– and yet, and yet, it’s all a kind of bizarre theatre too, a sideshow charade, since apparently Obama for one, whether playing some yet longer game for Satan or else just being diffident, has no intention of going all out or all in, all the while at least a regiment-sized deployment of American soldiers in Ukraine supports our violent coup there and sabre-rattles against Putin.

    Of course, who knows how many air strikes are really going on. And rumor has it Putin has deployed ground troops there. It’s all baffling. For all we know, the US may now be engaged in combats like those old Siberian “border disputes” between Mao and Moscow, where corps would barrage it out in undeclared ‘skirmishes’.

    Exactly!

    Instead, the West should just stay out, let them slaughter each other. Not our problem, or responsibility.

    The west is obsessed with destroying Assad and screwing up the middle east by supporting the Islamist FSA and possibly ISIL in the same way they screwed up Afghanistan by supporting the Mujaheddin against the Soviets

    Indeed.

    The best answer is just to butt out, leave them all alone, let them sort themselves out.

    Women generally aren’t as good soldiers as men? Next thing, they’ll be telling us that water is wet! 😉

    Obama’s trying to rectify the gender inequality by making the US military androgynous. Butch Bulldyke and Percy Lightfoot are the new MacArthur and Patton. Our Navy is like old videos of the Village People and the USAF will be dropping glitter-bombs soon.

    The force driving this crazed Western Imperialism are the freebooters who run the US economy and the left-wing whacko social engineers who run our government, media, and schools. Certain peoples—among them the Arabs—prefer a strongman to a democracy.

    I have to admire Assad—because though not a politician—he’s managed to hold Syria together against everything that Western interests have thrown at him. He’s going to come out of this disaster as a revered figure in the Arab world. By allying with him, Russia is going to have a huge influence in the Middle East.

    Yep, exactly; neither there nor on any other piece of the globe where legitimate (key qualifier) national interests are not threatened.

    More to the point: the world is a dangerous and unstable enough place already without pig-ignorant political demogogues sticking their fat, ignorant fingers in large portions of it and making even more trouble for everyone.

    @ Eric: LOL! 🙂

    @ Eric: Yep, the usual suspects.

    If Putin is for Assad, he can’t be all that bad. 😉

    @ feeriker: Exactly!

    @ infowarrior1: Naturally…

    Yes, Wall Street and the Liberal Government/Media/Academia Complex have a symbiotic relationship. Just like we’ve seen recently where Corporate America supports things like fag marriage, because they can use as it an issue to destroy Christian/traditionalist business rivals.

    In foreign policy, the scheme works like this: the Libtards start screaming about the need for ‘regime change’ somewhere. Then the Corporations finance, and the Government co-ordinates, some phony populist uprising. The extremist rebels ethnically cleanse all the loyalists and the traditional infrastructure. The media blames all that on the ‘regime’; which justifies Western military intervention. Then Wall Street swoops in to rebuild the economy and enslaves the population to pay their ‘war debt’ while the Prog Government installs one of their henchmen as a puppet who, in turn, raises the Rainbow Flag and floods the country with Prog cultural rot.

    This is why I like Assad. I don’t think would personally like a Baathist government here, but he knows the score and he’s saving Syria from becoming another Western cesspool.

    Hmmm. Well, I did think Saddam Hussein, his fellow Baathist and also reviled by the elites, was better than the alternatives – and that has been borne out, as we see what has happened to Iraq in his absence.

    While it is no one’s idea of the ideal government, Ba’athism works in that part of the world, given the complex historical, religious, and geopolitical factors at play. TPTB in the West, and in the USSA in particular, are abysmally –DANGEROUSLY– ignorant of the Arab world. The simple fact of the matter is that Western-style liberal democracy is incompatible with the stew of mutually hostile religious and tribal loyalties that are the collective of the Arab people. I strongly suspect that our overlords know this, at least on a visceral level, but that their megalomaniacal avarice and powerlust greatly overrules any vestiges of common sense.
