It’s impossible to verify but the picture tells a story about the pain and suffering that exists in Syria right now. There are many in the media who would like to say this is because president Bashar al-Assad is a ruthless killer. And that’s half true. Like other government leaders – he has engaged in war and with that war has come the death of tens of thousands and the displacement of over 1 million Syrians now living in refugee camps.

But this hasn’t always been the case. This is the inevitable result of a covert war being waged by the U.S., Israel and other Sunni countries like Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Our interests in taking down the Syrian dictator al-Assad are all about geo-politics. If we take out Syria – we neuter Iranian influence in the region. It has gotten so bad that al-Qaeda is now fighting on the same side as the United States government and Bashar al-Assad and his government are fighting al-Qaeda. And Syrians are all the victim of this massive global covert proxy war.

It has gotten to the point where we don’t even know if the chemical weapons that were used in Syria were the result of al-Qaeda or the Syrian government. When it comes to matters of intelligence and propaganda – it’s very hard to discern truth from fiction. But no one can deny that Syria was a very stable country until we decided to go in all guns blazing. We’re not bringing democracy to the world – that’s the sound of imperialism baby.

  1. I wouldn´t say it´s a covert war waged by the U.S, Israel, and the Sunni countries I would say it´s quite an open war. The U.S president actually said he would commit forces, bombarding from the air that is. But he never followed through with his word as usual.

    Of course is geo-politics, everything is. Each country looks out for his interest not only domestically but internationally which inevitably can be of interest domestically.In my opinion they should leave the President of Syria, or the dictator better said alone. The Russians for example have economic ties with Iran, but at the same time Iran fosters and helps out Muslim extremist, which are attacking Russian, so Russia has to keep an extreme good balance. On one hand they don´t want to take out Iran, and Syrian(Syria being a proxy of Iran) because of economic ties, on the other hand they don´t want to get the shit blown of their own country by some nut job extremist. So even this Hassad guy is a dictator, to maintain certain world order like it or not we do need dictators, specially in the times we live in. Where muslim extremist-terrorist take advantage of poor war torn countries to make way for themselves and take power. In my opinion in geo political stuff you a lot of times have to take the best of two evils, so is much safer(for the west) for Assad to stay in power even if he´s a dictator and people are not truly free, than as you pointed out the so called resistance which might have started as that, as people from Syria trying to overthrow the dictator but now Al-Qaeda is there, and probably doing most of the fighting backed by the Iranians. Since now the Iranians see a week Assad and see the possibility of a much more extremist people like the terrorist being able to take power over that country. So Iran is shifting also right now, it´s all interest no friends as you know.

    In my opinion the U.S should have either start leading from the front from day one and not let the terrorist infiltrate or not do nothing. Probably the latter since they have been in constant war since 2001 and people in the U.S, the civilians, get a little upset about always being at war. Don´t know why though since they are sitting at home watching all the war through the t.v and it really doesn´t affect them, it only affects the soldiers which by the way the volunteer to do that type of job.

    I didn´t watch the video, since being an ex-soldier myself, being in two war zones I have seen missery and inflicted missery and also missery has inflicted people very close to me. I´m lucky to be alive. So I know what it is to see a child scream because of a strain bullet from us or from one of the enemies. Although at the end it was us who took care of that child not the enemy.

    So that´s my simple thought on this.Nice post,made me think….and that does not happen very often.

      1. While you where posting a comment, after you where posting a comment….I´m getting confused.(wink wink, I´m winking!) Can´t figure out how to put yellow faces.

      2. I can´t, you can´t tell me to leave it! I´m not your husband…..that´s a pitty though.

        Can you un-marry and then marry me?………..or just get a divorce and lets have some fun!!( wink wink..tired of the freaking winks)

  2. Good post highlighting the complexities of world politics and wars. Seldom are there true ‘goodies’ and ‘baddies’ unfortunately. We revere our own Churchill for his impeccable stand against Hitler, BUT he promised the Kurds their own homeland if they joined the allies, which they did, and gave lives for OUR cause. They are STILL a ‘homeless’ people (not an independent nation) spread across Syria, Iraq and Iran, and an oppressed minority in each, despite having their own ancient culture and language.

  3. War is a horrible, ugly, de-humanizing destruction of what should be the peaceful coexistence of many and varied peoples, nations, beliefs and yes, ecological systems. It results almost invariably in all kinds of *self*-destruction as well as the terrible toll it takes on those under attack. How can anyone justify such abuses of our privilege as living, sentient beings? It seems only very young children are wise enough to see the futility and tragedy of it all.
