“Obama drew that line, and Obama can draw lines himself and his country, not for other countries. We have our red lines, like our sovereignty, our independence, while if you want to talk about world red lines, the United States used depleted Uranium in Iraq, Israel used White Phosphorous in Gaza, and nobody said anything. What about redlines? We don’t see redlines. It’s political red lines”. – Bashar al-Assad.
“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
By studying past events, it is undeniably evident that history repeats itself. It almost seems as though we study history not to learn from past events so we can evade them, but to learn how to perfect the flaws that were made so we can make those same mistakes without making it evident. President Obama is certain that Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons in Syria, but why won’t he mention the fact that the rebels admit they used the chemical weapons in the most recent attack?
In a recent interview with a group of rebels that chose to remain anonymous stated that they received the shipment from Saudi Arabia. A father of a rebel, named Abu Abdel- Moneim stated that his son came to him with an unknown shipment from Saudi Arabia asking him what the package could have been. His son, along with 12 other rebels died in the storage tunnel where the weaponry was stored. The father of the deceased rebel said that the Saudi militant that delivered the weapons to the rebel forces was known to be Abu Ayesha. Abu Ayesha described the package as being a “tube-like structure” while the rest were in a shape of a huge gas bottle. A female rebel, whose name is not revealed due to safety reasons said “they did not tell us what these arms were or how to use them; we didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons”. Other female rebels complained that Saudi Arabian Prince Bandar should have given such weapons to those who knew how to use them and handle them whereas they were unaware of the weaponry they received and had no idea how to use them.
Therefore, Assad is not to be blamed for the Chemical Massacre, Saudi Arabia is to be blamed for shipping chemical weapons to Syria and giving them to rebels that mishandled the weaponry. However, If President Obama believes he can fabricate empirical evidence to justify his claims, he is mistaken. War in Syria is not necessary, in fact the “revolution” would have not escalated if Obama had not given weaponry to the rebels knowing they have pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda as well as having the CIA train the “rebels” in Jordan. Why won’t President Obama also explain how the news they are showing on CNN is also fabricated? Ex-CNN reported Amber Lyon stated that CNN told her to lie about Syria and to lie about Iran.
Not only does America need to stop lying but, America needs to STOP fighting Israel’s wars. America will NOT benefit anything from intervening in Syria. Have we not learned from Iraq? Weapons of Mass destruction turned out to be false and what was the outcome of entering Iraq? Hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians died and a country was destroyed due to American “democracy”.
Syria is on the verge of the same path but fortunately many of us are awake and are aware that President Obama is lying. If the American government calls President Bashar al-Assad’s acts as a crime against humanity and label his acts as unacceptable, then Israel at this very moment should be charged with the slaughter and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians. Israel has been charged with violating over 100 UN resolutions against Palestinians, where is the justice? The only reason why Obama is urging to go to war with Syria is because Israel is pushing Obama’s buttons. Israel fears that Hezbollah and Iran will attack Israel.Bashar al-Assad has 12,000 missiles currently pointed at Tel Aviv, Hezbollah and Iran have pointed their missiles at Israel as well. While congress was voting whether or not they should intervene into Syria, Syrians in Damascus were patriotically waving their flags while Israelis were trying to flee their country from fear. If Congress rejected going into Syria there is no reason for Congress to vote again. What Obama is doing now is barking his same lie until he gets enough people to believe in it.
Only 10% of Americans actually want to intervene in Syria while the rest were protesting against the war. What happened to majority vote? What happened to our voice? This land of freedom lost every bit of democracy, it is now HYPOCRICY. Intervening in Syria will turn into World War III without a doubt. The war is too risky and too costly. Americans do not join the military to fight civil wars in other countries. The old are the ones that fantasize for war while they send the young ones to fight the war. We learned our lesson from entering Iraq, SAY NO TO WAR IN SYRIA. Obama and his administration are WRONG. Leave Syria alone, let there be peace. Money talks in their eyes, but we’ll make sure our voice gets heard! The entire world is waking up while Obama’s administration is still sleeping.
President Bashar al-Assad does not need to step down. Over 85% of Syria currently wants him to remain as President. What makes President Bashar al-Assad fight harder for justice is because of people like us. Whether we are Syrian, Lebanese, Iraqi, Armenian, American, Latino, Black or Asian, if we stand up for the truth and show the world that we will not be fooled, that gives Syria enough strength to persevere. Our voice weakens Obama’s administration, that is why we are being ignored, but our voice strengthens Syria’s President and reassures him that his people are on his side.
President Bashar al-Assad has been accused of using chemical weapons against his people and is listed by Western media for being one of the worst dictators of our time. President Obama firmly said if Bashar al-Assad uses any form of chemical weapons against his people he will draw the red line and intervene. Now how many times has Bashar al-Assad been accused of using chemical weapons against his people? About three times, and in all those incidents President Obama repeats the same sayings but never takes affirmative action. Every time UN inspectors enter Syria to inspect the damage areas of the country, a new massacre shortly begins. Why would the Syrian government “gas” their own people during the same time the UN inspectors are present in Syria? Keep in mind, the UN inspectors have admitted once that the rebels have used chemical weapons.
It’s easy to blame such heinous atrocities on Bashar al-Assad because the West and Gulf nations have tainted his true image and painted a fake one instead. The Syrian government is being successful against this proxy revolution that was fabricated by the West. The “rebels” are in dire need of help, even if America is sending them heavy artillery, it just isn’t enough. The only way the West can rightfully intervene in Syria is if Bashar al-Assad uses chemical weapons. The Houla Massacre was the first chemical attack in Syria that received high amount of publicity. BBC published a photo on their website that showed the corpses of over one hundred dead children and said this was a photo taken from the Houla Massacre. Shortly after the photo was published, the photographer of the photo notified BBC that the photo was originally taken in Iraq and was not taken in Syria. That image was not the only propaganda that was being spread, fortunately BBC took the photo down from the site but sadly it was already heavily circulated. During the alleged Houla Massacres, countless images of martyred Palestinian and Iraqi civilians were shown as Syrians martyrs and with those images they were easily able to brainwash us. Many will not question the true source of the images that are being spread. Once they see an image of a dead child from Syria, it is automatically from Syria and nowhere else. Many don’t take the time to actually research the topic and are easily given in to the lies that they are being fed.
The next incident of chemical attack usage was in Aleppo Syria. The area that was struck by chemicals was Pro-Governmental area, why would Bashar gas his own supporters?! In fact it was later proven that the rebels were the ones who were using Sarin gas against the civilians and not President Bashar al-Assad. Every time a chemical attack is being done, rebels are not the ones dying it is always innocent civilians. These so called rebels pledge allegiance to al Qaeda and worship Bin Laden, why would anyone even consider what they say to be true? These rebels have no heart; they kill innocent children and blame it on Assad because they know the media will weep for the children.
The most recent reports of a chemical attack in Syria were on August 21, 2013 and rumors have it that the estimated death toll is over 1000 civilians. Now here is the interesting part Al Jazzeria and Reuters published videos and images of the Massacre in Damascus one day before it actually occurred. Over ten videos were published and in most of those videos the rebels were acting in them and pretending to be dead or injured civilians. Many of the babies shown in the videos are in fact dead and the ones behind their death are the FSA.
“These evidences show the massacre by terrorists in Syria and their struggle for making people to believe that Syrian Regime behind the massacre. You will see that the terrorists uploaded videos before the massacre(their so-called allegation of the time when Syrian Army attacked with chemical weapons).
The news of so- called chemical wepaon attack by Syrian Regime was published by Al- Jazzera (http://blogs.aljazeera.com/topic/syria/dozens-people-have-been-killed-syria-nerve-gas-attack-government-forces-activists-said) at 09: 28. Another pro- Syrian terrorists site:”Baath Regime used chemical weapons in East Ghouta, Damascus, Jobar, Ain Tarma, Zamalka, Western Ghouta, Muaddamiyah around 03: 30 am. The source said that the death toll may rise because the lack of equipments and medical sources… At the same time one of the well know pro-Syrian terrorists youtube account ‘SHAMSNN’ uploaded tens videos quickly between 03: 00 and 04: 00. MOST IMPORTANT evidence is that the uploading time is 20 August !!!BUT THEY ACCUSED SYRIAN REGIME FOR ATTACK ON 21 AUGUST!!!
Even if we regard the chemical attack as the 03: 30, it is impossible to take the film of the scene and uploading those tens of videos… this shows that terrorists prepared, organized all of the scenes beforehand then accused Syrian regime for a massacre that terrorists did. the more those terrorists come to an end the more they become brutal. They even do not have any mercy for the children and used them just to deceive people of the world. They gathered all civilians, children, women to certain areas and then kill them brutally then accuse Syrian Regime in order to legalize their brutality.” (Islamicinvitationturkey.com).
Once the news of the chemical attacks spread, the news went viral and photos were trending like crazy. The same photos that were used during the Houla Massacre showed up again in this recent chemical attack. Deceased Pakistani, Afghani, Iraqi, Palestinian and other innocent martyrs are being victims. It was not enough to the west that they have already died once, but they “virtually” kill them again and use their photos and say it happened in Syria. Even the videos seem fabricated, because they are all staged. In these videos the victims are sent to a field hospital, not a real hospital. There are no signs of any ambulance and in this massacre it is said that children made up most of the victims, but where are their parents? Why aren’t there any devastated mother screaming for help and praying for their child?
(Amazing video, beautifully portrays the chemical weapon false flag. exposes FSA lies and how they are using the chemical weapons)
Once you take a video of these alleged Chemical attacks in Syria. Ask yourselves these questions?
1) Why are the children placed on the floor? Why aren’t they getting the actual help they need. They all seemed to be stacked near each other. That’s no way to handle such an incident.
2) Why the children are carried in by men and have needles in their neck?
3) Why are all the boys undressed and the girls clothed?
4) Why do all the children looked drugged?
5) Why are these men handling the children so badly, like they did in the Houla Massacre?
6) Why don’t they show the faces of these so called doctors?
Why would a President that is loved by over 85% of his people kill his own? All these photos and videos were sent by the FSA, what person in their right mind would trust them? These are the same people that want to see Muslim brotherhood in Syria, these are the people that scream Allahu akbar before they execute and behead an innocent civilian. These are the people that open up a soldier’s chest and take a bite out of his heart. These are the people that worship Bin Laden. Why would you trust what they say? You believe what the West says but haven’t we learned our lesson with Iraq? Weapons of Mass destruction have turned into Chemical Weapons. Republican or Democrat, they are separated by political label but have the same agenda.
Syria may be the center of the biggest humanitarian crises, but those who are encouraging and supporting the acts made by the rebels are the biggest war criminals and they know who they are.
Many Arab countries have recently been victimized due to the countless terrorist attacks that have taken place in the Middle East. The Arab spring has sparked countless revolutions that spread to neighboring countries like an epidemic, but as the revolutions heightened so did the acts of terrorism. The reason why terrorism reached its apex in the Middle East is mainly due to the fact that the only means of warfare that is available to oppressed people is terrorism. However, the acts of terrorism should be viewed no differently than the war crimes committed by the military, especially in regards to the conflicts sparked in the Middle East. Soldiers who are fighting a war are committing crimes no different than those committed by terrorists. Whether it be the heinous acts committed by the Bahraini soldiers, or the terrorists in Syria who have sugar coated their name to be considered rebels, soldiers and terrorists in the Middle East are fighting the same mission to obtain power, take down those who aren’t of the same religion, and to glorify their name amongst their people if not the entire world.
A terrorist attack such as 9/11 has changed the lives of all Americans, but to the Arabs in the Middle East, our 9/11 is their 24/7, and most of the time the governments are the reason beyond the massive killings. The bloodshed in Bahrain is a silent revolution over religion that most people aren’t aware of. The Bahraini citizens have been oppressed under the rule of King Hamad Al-Khalifa for many years. After the rise of the Arab spring, one country after another has been undergoing a revolution, yet the voice of most Bahrainis has been left unheard because they are unwanted in the king’s eyes. Under the command of the Bahraini king along with the assistance and aid of the Saudi King, soldiers have been ordered to kill innocent civilians. Why are innocent civilians the target in these brutal massacres and why isn’t the revolution getting the attention it deserves? The answer to both questions is simply because the majority of Bahraini citizens are Shia Muslims while the minority of citizens along with the royal family is Sunni. While Arabs blame their problems on the Israelis, the real problem is the disharmony and hatred between the two Islamic sects. In this case, the soldiers who are fulfilling the commands of their tyrant leaders are committing the same crimes done by terrorists.
In the past, Muslim extremists have slaughtered families, hung the men, raped the women, and have forever crushed the dreams of young children who never had a chance to succeed in life. The entire world cries when such melancholy events occur due to terrorism. Yet most of the world is silent when soldiers in Bahrain are committing the same acts on its people. Why should terrorist groups be acknowledged for such gruesome acts while hundreds of Bahraini lives are taken away each day and aren’t acknowledged because the soldiers are doing their job. There is no difference between what terrorists do and what Bahraini soldiers have been doing today. Furthermore, no revolution should be ignored especially one that involves the death of countless civilians. Saudi Arabia has been behind this silent revolution in Bahrain and they are the ones behind the fake revolution in Syria.
Having said that, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, Israel along with the Western powers have formulated a proxy war to take down President Bashar Al-Assad out of power. Truth of the matter is, President Assad is not a tyrant leader and is loved by his people, contrary to popular belief. Why was this proxy war created in the first place? It is because of power and resources. Syria lies in the heart of the Middle East, plays a crucial role in Middle Eastern politics, has oil, and is allies with Iran which automatically makes them an enemy according to the West. Interestingly enough, these so called Syrian ‘rebels’ are not Syrian, majority of them are Muslim jihadist sent from Libya, Jordan, Turkey and other Islamic countries. These terrorists have blown up churches, schools, mosques, and have destroyed most of Syria. Not to mention the kidnappings, beatings, and violence these terrorists have caused. Aside from that, they capture innocent civilians who support Bashar and behead them while screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’. Saudi Arabia also proclaimed that under Sharia law, Muslim jihadists (terrorists) are given the right to rape any women in Syria as long as they are not Sunni, making Christians, Shias, and Druze an open target for their atrocious acts.
Unfortunately the world has been fed with lies and propaganda into believing that these terrorists are legitimate soldiers fighting for their countries freedom. As more and more jihadists fill the Syrian country, Al Qaeda along with Al Nusra have made moves of their own to destruct the Syrian country. So instead of fighting a war on terror, America is the one funding the terrorists. Under the approval of the American government, the CIA is funding and training the ‘rebels’. Many people will deny the fact that America is funding terrorists and that they are training legitimate rebels to overthrow Bashar’s regime. On the other hand, Ex- CNN reporter Amber Lyon had openly stated that CNN made us lie about Syria and Iran. Whether it is the terrorists or foreign soldiers who have entered Syria, we should not be easily fooled by their acts. They may go by different names for one is regarded as a terrorist and the other as a soldier, both groups have the intentions of overthrowing the Syrian government so they can be the ones in control.
America may be training the ‘rebels’ in Syria now but America goes a long way when it comes to training and funding terrorists groups. As a super power, one duty a country must fulfill at all times is to glorify its country’s name, even if it means playing by dirty tricks. When Russia had invaded Afghanistan in the 1980’s, the CIA under America’s approval funded Al-Qaeda billions of dollars along with supplying them with weaponry so they wouldn’t lose Afghanistan to the Communists. Bin Laden was also a CIA agent during the 1980’s and was trained by the United States. Years later America fought against Al-Qaeda in order to obtain oil from Iraq and to destabilize the Middle East. However, America sees its acts as rightful and justified because according to them they were helping the Afghans win over against the communists the same way they are helping the ‘freedom fighters’ in Syria and not terrorists.
If a country funds terrorists, doesn’t that make their actions equivalent to those done by terrorists themselves? America trained Bin Laden and at the end Bin Laden used all he knew against the Americans. No means of extremist acts should be used in order to glorify one’s own country. At the end America funded Al-Qaeda during the cold war and fought against them during the war on terror. Some may call America’s actions heroic, but are they really? The amount of causalities and civilians lost in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan were tremendous. Funding Al-Qaeda in the 80’s and fighting against them now is quite contradictory. America’s intervention in any country should be deemed as an act of terror. Glorifying America’s name by attempting to win a never ending war on terrorism or by trying to other throwing a tyrant regime makes American soldiers terrorists too. As long as innocent civilians are in danger and are being killed, whether it is America or the United Nations, a terrorist act is a terrorist act.
Terrorism is learned and the biggest terrorist acts are usually committed none other than by government officials. The problem with politics nowadays is that Islam is associated with terrorism. Terrorism has no religion and those committing the acts have been brainwashed into doing them. Charismatic leaders are able to manipulate soldiers or jihadist into doing what they think is right. Therefore soldiers should not be praised for their ‘heroic’ acts when they are killing civilians, destroying homes along with the country itself. They go by different names but the acts they are committing are the same.
March 15, 2011 will be an unforgettable day not only for all the Syrians around the world, but for the entire Middle East. To some, that day held a revolutionary uprising that sparked hope for a better future. To others that melancholy day brought fear of losing a secular Syria to the hands of radical extremists. The Arab spring had hit other countries hard like an epidemic, moving from one country to the next. Many tyrant leaders had been toppled long before the Syrian Revolution began, and the next leader on that list was none other than President Bashar Al-Assad of Syria. It is evident that as a super power, one of America’s moral obligations is to assist countries in need, whether it is economically, financially or with other means of humanitarian aid. However, there are hundreds of humanitarian crisis’ happening around the world each day, why would the crisis in Syria be of any interest to America? Syria happens to be located in the heart of the Middle East and plays a vital role in Middle-Eastern politics,even as a third world country. Aside from that, America takes interest in Syria because America knows if the Syrian government crumbles and falls, violence will spread to neighboring countries of Iraq and Lebanon, there is also a huge possibility that Al-Qaeda is involved in the Syrian revolution and if Syria falls it can potentially hurt America. Even though there are a lot of risk factors regarding America’s intervention in Syria, President Obama had been getting a lot of criticism for the delay, which is why after a course of two bloody years of war, President Obama acknowledged the ‘Syrian Rebels’ and sent aid, along with having the CIA train the rebels.
The Syrian conflict began in a city called Homs in April 2012, and it gained the title of being the capital city for the Revolution, as it was the first city to join the uprising against the Assad regime. According to those who are against the regime, President Bashar Al-Assad is a tyrant leader who is only representing the Alawite-Shiite community since he is an Alawite-Shiite himself. Therefore the majority Sunni-Muslims and the Christian minorities have been under- represented for the past seven years. Aside from that, he is depriving his citizens from their rights and freedoms. He is killing his own people, primarily those who oppose his regime. Not only is he committing such atrocious acts, but he denies the fact that innocent civilians are being killed. It is undeniable that innocent civilians are being killed, but many Pro-opposition supporters have been alarmed over President Obama’s silent behavior in regards to the Syrian Revolution.
First and foremost, Syria is not like Libya; President Bashar Al-Assad did not openly state that he was going to kill his own people on public television the same way Gaddafi did. Also if America gave any form of military aid early on in the revolution, it would not have been clear whether the weaponry would have gone to the rebels or fall into the hands of Al-Qaeda. President Obama was hesitant with his decision because he knew the situation in Syria has many potential risk factors. If Syria is weak and destabilized, violence can easily spread to border countries of Lebanon and Iraq. America recently ended a war in Iraq and would not want the Iraqi civilians to undergo turmoil in their country once more. As for Lebanon, if violence does spill over to the Lebanese border, there is a fear that another civil war will erupt or Hezbollah will take affirmative action in response to the violence. If such conflicts were to be sparked, it would hold another serious political and diplomatic problem in which President Obama would inevitable have to address.
Furthermore, Syria has support from Russia, Hezbollah, Iran and to a lesser degree, China. President Obama is not oblivious and is aware that what President Assad is doing is completely unacceptable, but intervening in Syria would end up sparking a war between the super powers which would end up costly. Former President Gorge Bush had warned the Americans about the “Axis of Evil” being Iran, North Korea and Iraq. Iran has been Syria’s backbone from the beginning of the revolution, and as the revolution continued, so did Iran’s support.
However, when the issue of chemical weapons arose, President Obama’s attention was captured and he made it clear that if President Assad were to use chemical weapons against his people his consequences would be severe. After two years, President Obama also acknowledged the opposition group in Syria which angered those who support Bashar. Although the main controversy behind the President acknowledging the rebels, is the military aid and training that he is providing for them. The CIA has currently been training the rebel opposition group in Jordan for several months now. What most of the world does not know is that the CIA has been training the rebels since last year in an undefined location of Jordan. The rebels that are being trained are primarily Sunni Extremists.
The CIA has been delivering weapons to the freedom fighters and is aware that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and other countries are sending aid as well. However, most of the armed shipment has been sent from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, but the weaponry sent from those two countries are going to die heart jihadist, even though President Obama is aware of that, he is still allowing the CIA to train the rebels in Jordan and is not putting a stop to the shipment being arrived from Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In accordance with America’s national values, America is responsible as a supreme global leader to defend democratic principles. The Syrian citizens are in urgent need of democracy according to those who support the opposition, and America as a super power, has a right to bring democracy to Syria.
On the contrary, Obama’s acknowledgements of the Free Syrian Army along with having the CIA train them as outraged countless Pro-Bashar Supporters. According to those who support Bashar, they believe the Americans should see the Syrian crisis not from Western media, not from the rebels, but from Syrians themselves. Many Pro-Bashar supporters consider this revolution to be a fake revolution for a number of reasons. This revolution is actually a proxy war formulated by the west along with Qatar and Saudi Arabia to destabilize the Syrian government for their own selfish means. The opposition group is not mainly composed of Syrians; it is consisted of foreigners from Libya, Jordan, Chechnya, Turkey and other Islamic nations. King Abdullah from Saudi Arabia proclaimed that those who do jihad in Syria will be guaranteed to have breakfast with Allah and will have their 72 virgins waiting for them in heaven. King Abdullah also granted Fatwas allowing Jihadist to have sex with women who are not Sunni, making Shias, Alawites, Christians and Druze to be an open target. King Abdullah mainly wants Bashar out of power so an extremist can control Syria and impose Sharia law onto the country. He also has brainwashed the uneducated poor to do Jihad in Syria and to kill as many pro-Bashar supporters as possible, which is why all the main attacks in Damascus and Aleppo are in pro-Bashar areas.
Qatar also created this fake revolution to weaken Syria and potentially damage Iran as a way of revenge for ruining Qatar’s pipeline designs. In 2011, the same year the Syrian uprising began, Iraq and Syria signed a ten billion dollar deal to allow Iran to build a pipeline through its own territory and later connecting it to Syria. Iran also plans to create nuclear energy so they can later sell their oil to countries that need it. However, the pipeline situation directly affected Qatar because King Hamad had similar pipeline designs to be created in Syria that would connect to Turkey. The pipeline is another proxy in the Syrian conflict. Israel has silently been involved with bringing Assad down. Bashar Al-Assad has been known for being close allies with Hezbollah, has sent aid to Hamas, and has stood by Palestine in every conflict. In order to weaken Hezbollah, Bashar al-Assad must go down. The Syrian government had collected countless weapons that were made in Israel and had Hebrew writing on them that were all used by the opposition forces. Israel has opened its doors to the Free Syrian Army by openly allowing the ‘rebels’ to be treated in Israeli hospitals. Furthermore, America wants Bashar go to down so they can replace him with an American puppet as they have done with other Arab countries.
Having said that many Pro-Syrians are outraged by America’s decision because in their eyes what Obama is basically doing is training the terrorists and giving them weaponry. The CIA has recently been training the ‘rebels’ or ‘terrorists’ in Jordan and from Jordan they enter Syria just like many jihadist who fight in Syria. Saudi Arabia may have caused a religious war to bring disharmony between the Sunnis and the Shias, but many Sunnis and other Syrians are loyal to their President. Western media along with Saudi Arabian controlled media in the Middle East have been exposing propaganda to the world and spreading lies so the world can listen to what they want to say, not the truth. Former CNN reporter Amber Lyon stated that the American government made lies about Syria and Iran for their own interest; “CNN channel manipulates, fabricates news and follows restrictiveness when broadcasting news, stressing that the Channel receives money from the U.S. government and other countries’ governments in exchange for news content.” It is about time that the Western countries and Arab countries put aside their own interest and start paying attention to what is best for the Syrian people. America’s assistance to the rebels is not going to make matters better for Syria, it will make it worse and the bloodshed will continue as long as the West is funding and supporting the terrorists.
As an American who has family in Syria I am completely against America’s aid and assistance in training the rebels. America recently sent out ten million dollars to the rebels and supplied them with weaponry. I also believe that President Bashar Al-Assad is not a tyrant leader, outside countries have formulated this revolution for their own benefit and as Syria crumbles, they will all try to take control of it. Bashar has 2/3 majority vote in Syria, Syrians who live in Syria love the president. He is protecting his people, if he were not; Syria would not have been the 4th safest country in 2009 or the 10th visited country by tourists in 2010. The ‘freedom fighters’ are not fighting for democracy or freedom as America hopes, they are fighting to destroy a secular Syria. Saudi Arabia does not want any Christians in Syria. Over 1000 Christians have been killed; over 200,000 have fled the country leaving 10% of Syria’s population to be Christians. My uncle has been a victimized due to his religion, terrorists had kidnapped and beat him while screaming ‘allahu akbar’, fortunately they let him go instead of killing him. Therefore the crisis in Syria has affected me tremendously and Obama’s take on the Syrian crisis upsets me beyond belief. He claims he doesn’t negotiate terrorists but at the same time he is the one who is funding the rebels in Syria. Obama was afraid of sending aid to the rebels because he thought it would fall into the hands of Al Qaeda but Al Qaeda and Al Nusra Font have been fighting alongside the rebels the entire time.
No one can predict the end to the bloodshed in Syria. As a global power it was America’s duty to try to bring an end to the oppression and bring forth democracy. Many were grateful that America finally stepped in and helped out in some way, others were not. However one thing that is clear is that America cannot afford another war, especially a war that involves super powers. America indirectly intervened in Syria knowing it can bring forth its definition of freedom in Syria, but is it really freedom? One may call it freedom, but it is terrorism. One may call it jihad, but it is murder. One may call an Islamic state, but it is a secular state. One may call him a dictator, but he is SYRIA’S President.
