Dr Bashar Assad Says He Will Not Leave Syria: He Is Right!! Don’t Believe Our CIA and Our Generals!
The civil war in Syria has been raging on for about 1 ½ years. This war is an attempt by Saudi Arabia, UAE, the other Sunni state of Turkey to rid themselves of the so-called ‘tyrant’, Dr Bashar Assad.
Why do I say so-called ‘tyrant’ Dr Bashar Assad?
First, I address him by his proper title of a British-trained opthamologist- who is a physician unlike the other equally known ‘tyrants’ like King Faisal and his spoiled Saudi ‘Princelings’, the Emir of UAE [another fake title created by the British after WWI] and the Sabah Family [corrupt non-titular ruling family ] of Kuwait.
The next thing that we need to get straight in this convoluted Syrian civil war- we are dealing with a highly intelligent, professional individual and his family.
No dummies be they!
Then we have to uncover the line-up behind Dr Bashar and why I think he will remain in power much longer than our misdirected intelligence system has stated.
As I mentioned before, Putin backs Bashar Assad. In my opinion, contrary to the naïve, simplistic constructs of our previous neocon factotums behind the Republicans, Putin is strong, shrewd, and extremely knowledgeable. He is an expert in geopolitical strategy and tactics. Putin knows that by supporting Bashar, Russia can protect Christians, Druze, Shi’ites and other minority groups from the wanton slaughter by Salafists and Sunnis and acquire a major foothold in the Middle East while American forces pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Then we have the Iranians protecting Bashar. Iran’s presence in Syria counters the Sunni forces of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, UAE and the mercenaries of the USA funded by no other than our favorite “Gang Who Cannot Shoot Straight”---The CIA.
Next we have the Turks who want to protect their borders from more refugees rushing into the southern border of Turkey. They have placed heavy artillery and hundreds of thousands of soldiers and Anti-aircraft guns along the northern border of Syria [southern border of Turkey] in order to insure a ‘no-fly zone’.
As previously mentioned a few blogs ago, Erdogan has very little wiggle room with which to play because he has to worry that the Syrians and others [read Russia and Iran] don’t create a secessionist movement of Kurds in Turkey, resulting in the unfortunate loss of about one third of Turkey’s land mass.
However, the biggest reason why I think that Bashar Assad will survive is the misbegotten assessment of our intelligence community that the US must support the downfall of Bashar. Why would we do that, you ask? Answer: USG wants to support the Saudi thugs (Salafists) in their attempt to overthrow Assad and stop the growing hegemony of Iran over the Middle East especially over the Saudi Arabians.
Why should we support the corrupt Saudis over the corrupt Iranians who, by the way, helped us to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan while the Saudis have done nothing more than finance so-called ‘terrorist groups’ which we first created and then fought.
Sidebar: Please always remember the basic military principle that the US military and national security establishment over the past forty years only fights those ’tyrants’ that the CIA, WH, or the State Department create and support. When we no longer find them useful, we accuse them of some absurd sin (e.g. Noriega is a ‘drug lord’ when he was our intelligence and drug intercessor for the CIA) and get rid of them.
Or, what about this one. Bush Jr, who swore he would ‘kill Sadam’ because Sadam ‘had tried to kill his father, Bush Sr’. Unfortunately, he forgot to mention the parts of the story where he, George Shultz, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, supplied Sadam with poison gas canisters and helicopters with which Sadam could massacre the Kurds.
Same thing with Gaddafi. He helped the USA to stop some ‘terrorist groups’ and provided Goldman Sachs with 1.4 billion in cash, but he became ‘inconvenient’ so he had to go.
Funny thing is…. Sadam, Noriega, and Gaddafi (the fake Arab born Yemeni-Jew) are all well relocated in far away places where most people would not even recognize them if they walked into the local shopping center.
I wish I could make up this type of nonsensical gamesmanship, but as a fiction writer it was too absurd even for me. The Rule of Kings which insures the survival of the enemy leader and gives him /her an ‘escape clause’ in a ‘trumped –up-war’ by the US or any other nation does not allow for the recent death of so-called ‘tyrants’.
Now, we come to the basic fact that Bashar has so far refused the ‘routine offer’ that states make to a ‘tyrant’ in order to rid themselves of these ‘noisome pests’.
He has very clearly stated ‘I will not leave here [Syria] alive. I was born here and I will die here in Syria’.
As I have mentioned before in my previous blogs, I had a chance to get to know Hafez Assad (father of Bashar) He was a forceful ex-Air Force Commander and leader of Syria. As luck would have it, I was interrogated by Bashar Assad’s Interior Security Minister, I have come to a definite conclusion about the Assad family: Don’t mess with them!!!
They were born in Syria and they will die in Syria.
Our own Benghazi catastrophe was an unfortunate by product of this covert civil war in which the CIA used the American consulate to ‘illegally’ store ‘large weapons’ [against all international laws--violating Libyan, international and American laws] which would mistakenly support the Saudi thugs—the ‘salafist’ and ‘sunni terrorist’ groups financed by Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
Doesn’t this sound familiar?
September 11, 2001 and September 11, 2012—same cast of characters—the Hot Shot, Hot Headed, “Legacy of Ashes”, our CIA and now under the direction of General Petraeus (who should have known better) and not have been sucked into this stupid plan concocted by General Dempsey, Brennan, Donilon, Biden, Hillary, and the other brains who never understood the Middle East. Not the way Ambassador Christopher Stevens did (a brilliant ‘Arabist’ who opposed this support of the non-existent ‘freedom fighters’ of Syria).
So four Americans die for an asinine plan concocted by the Usual Suspects—Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia, Petraeus (unfortunately), Panetta and the White House ‘choir boys’.
Two of the dead were CIA contractors who died for a paycheck, not for love of country or honor. But that’s the price you pay when you trust your life in the hands of American amateurs who try to depose a professional ‘tyrant’.
We continue to make this mistake over and over, costing the US lives and lots of money.
It goes something like this…..
We create an unnecessary conflict and conflagration –like 9/11 ten years apart—declare it a war and a dishonor to American security. Then we devise some half-baked plan to solve a problem that we created in the first place. Inevitably, we find ourselves with mud on our face and blood on our hands.
Next we appoint a ‘commission’ to ‘investigate’ the original problem that should never have existed in the first place.
Finally, we concoct some fictional narrative like Osama Bin Laden, despite being already dead and buried, will be found and killed when it is politically convenient….sometimes Hollywood gets in there to “help us out” with a good story….
Soldiers and mercenaries are sent to far away places that the British Army had long deserted over one hundred years ago. Our American soldiers and mercenaries die needlessly and we immediately declare them as ‘heroes’ despite the fact that most of them had never seen the enemy. Most were killed by anonymous snipers or more likely erratic IEDs. These are not heroes but ‘cannon fodder’. We throw away our men and women into an electronic/robotic warfare in which they rarely engage anyone but an electronic initiated detonation.
To make matters even worse, we call these maimed bodies ‘wounded warriors’ and then discard them in the back halls of VA while our Generals go onto earn seven figure salaries for losing the made up ‘war’.
Some of generals are so modest as to go on and write a book about their ‘fictitious heroics’ .
Boycott those books!
Dr Bashar Assad will continue to live on…..along with other ‘tyrants’….. Saudis…..Iranians….. Salafists… and…….CIA…..White House Choir Boys….
Wake up America! Stop spending billions on “phony wars”.
