"The Syrian President Bashar Al -Assad is the symbol of Syrian demographic and geographic unity, and without him Syria is going to be another Somalia or Yugoslavia."

 

MP Omar Ose, January 2016.

 

"Supporting Assad remains the only realistic path that will return us to the relative stability of the pre–Arab Spring days, and that will defeat ISIS. No one is more motivated to defeat ISIS than Assad, who would like to reassume Syria’s internationally recognized borders and seek revenge on atrocities that ISIS has committed against captured Syrian soldiers. Assad is a viable source of stability also because of his unconditional support from Iran, which fears and detests ISIS for the threat it poses to Shiite dominance of the region."

 The Western public just has to get used to it - Assad's not going anywhere, and not because of what Russia or Iran says, but because he's Syrians' choice

On Sunday Syria's President Bashar al Assad went with his wife Asma to a Christmas Mass concert in Damascus. For  many people in the West, the photos that soon appeared of Bashar and Asma hugging and being hugged by small children, old men and young women would probably cause consternation or apoplexy - if they were to see them.

In an analysis by David Macilwain, the Russian Insider, Macilwain added But this is unlikely, as Western media would exercise its duty of care to protect people from such an upsetting sight, and the public disorder that might result. It shouldn't worry however that people's perception of the Syrian leader might change for the better; it is simply not possible for this to happen, any more than it is possible that Syrians would change their minds about President Assad.

 “Fighting against Bashar al-Assad for three years, we have strengthened ISIL positions. The political fate of Bashar al-Assad should be decided by the Syrian people in the course of future democratic elections. As for now, Assad is the only politician who is able to have the country under control and not let it fall apart. France should finally change its political course and cooperate with Assad to resolve the Syrian conflict.''

 " President Bashar Al-Assad, a man who loves God, humanity, his people, his land - a man who loves God, humanity, his people, his country . President Assad is a man who loves his family."

Marie-Helene Berglind, Peace Activist, December 2015.

 

"The first line of defense against evil and darkness. We salute all the brave men of Syria (all religious sects and faiths), and their outstanding leader Dr. Bashar al-Assad. "

 


 

The utmost respect for these two devoted men. They are second to none, in terms of popularity, courage and wisdom. Thousands of salutes. The entire civilized world stands behind this outstanding leader. His popularity is increasing every day. A hero for billions people worldwide. He is the epitome against imperialism and colonialism.

 

 We salute him,

 

 Allah Souria Bashar W Bas.

H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad on received ON November 17, 2015, a letter from U.S. Senator for the State of Virginia Richard Black a letter in which he said “I was pleased by the Russians’ intervention against the armies invading Syria. With their support, the Syrian Army has made dramatic strides against the terrorists.”

“I was delighted by Syria’s resounding victory over ISIS at the Kuwairis Airfield. My compliments to those who heroically rescued 1,000 brave Syrian soldiers from certain death. I am convinced that many such victories lie ahead,” Black added.

The Senator asserted that the war on Syria was not caused by domestic unrest, saying “It was an unlawful war of aggression by foreign powers determined to force a puppet regime on Syria. General Wesley Clark, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe, revealed that by 2001, Western powers had developed plans to overthrow Syria. Yet after fifteen years, of military subversion, NATO, Saudi Arabia and Qatar still cannot identify a single leader who enjoys popular support among the Syrian people.”

  Part 2: Someone recently asked me again, "Why is the world against Assad (President of Syria)?" The question really should be, "Why is the United States at war against Assad?" Well, it's not a sound bite answer - in fact it is an intricate and complex perfect storm of geo-political intrigue. The bottom line is, Assad wasn't targeted to create stability in Syria - but to destroy the stability that was growing there (this is just the tip of the iceberg):

1) The Syrian war IS NOT a civil war or organic, popular uprising against a 'brutal dictator' that started in March 2011 when Assad 'brutally' put down 'peaceful protests'.

2) The Syrian war IS a US organized coup against the legitimate, popular, and quite positive leader of a sovereign nation - done to great extent for and with the help of malignant - and sometimes just plain jealous - regional 'allies'.

3) After 9/11, Bush - prompted by the neo-cons like Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Don Rumsfeld, etc decided to attack not the root of al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia, but un-involved Iraq. The War on Terror began.

4) Colin Powell went to Syria to make demands of Assad which he refused, among those was to aid us in our overthrow of Saddam. Assad said it would end in a quagmire with the region worse off. He also refused to end ties with Iran (who also had no part in 9/11) and other items. After those refusals, Assad was added to the ridiculous "axis of evil" since Bush was in full "you are either with us or against us" mode.

5) The 7 countries in 5 years plan was created by the neo-cons (Cheney, Abrams, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld etc) to take out Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finally, Iran. Former NATO Commander, General Wesley Clark revealed this plan in 2007.

6) In 2006, a government document revealed how the US was working to foment sectarian hatred and unrest in stable and secular Syria in order to bring about an Islamist revolution there.

7) In 2007, George Bush and Elliot Abrams met with the Muslim Brotherhood to discuss and plan the ousting of Assad and replacing his government with a 'free and democratic' one which the Bros would have significant influence in. The Bros definition of 'freedom and democracy' is strict sharia law btw. The Bros are NOT allowed to have any part in Syrian politics and for good reason.

8) Meanwhile, President Assad was named most popular Arab leader in 2008 and 2009 by a regional poll. Charlie Rose said then that Damascus was the place to be in the ME for business. Sophie Shevradnaze said when people heard the name, "Assad" they'd straighten their ties in respect. Diane Sawyer visited in 2007 and raved about Syria. The BBC's John Simpson hailed Assad as impressive.

9) Saudi Arabia, the US's most powerful Arab ally was getting freaked out about Assad's popularity and the secular, tolerant nature of Syrian society. The radical Wahhabis started sectarian-driven propaganda to turn the Sunni majority against Assad using their Al Arabiya media and radical clerics etc.

10) Qatar started using al Jazeera Arabic to do the same thing for the Muslim Bros. Assad had opened Syria up to the internet and his enemies used it against him.

11) Qatar was angry at Assad mostly because of a gas pipeline deal. Qatar and Iran share the massive natural gas field in the Persian Gulf. Both countries had submitted pipeline deals thru Syria (this field holds enough natural gas to meet Europe's needs for 100 years). Assad took Iran's deal and then Qatar started helping with the overthrow.

12) Israel wanted Assad out for several reasons. He is a unifying force. Secular, popular and gaining to much influence in the region. This influence was starting to be felt in negotiations for return of the Golan Heights and pressure to negotiate for the Palestinians. Also he has good relations with Iran. Together, Syria and Hezbollah had defeated Israel's long held goal of taking control of Lebanon.

13) Iran, Iran, Iran. Israel and the Saudis HATE Iran with a passion. For as many times as Iran has said 'death to Israel' believe me, the Israelis have said it about Iran with every bit as much vehemence. From what I can see, Iran is the only country strong enough to stop Israel's plans to take control over Lebanon, if not the whole Levant from Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. The Saud's problem seems to be their crazed radical Sunnis want the Shiites all converted or dead but I'm sure there is more to that as well. Keep in mind, the Syrian army and government are mostly Sunni - they are stopping the radicals from taking over secular Syria.

14) Turkey is ruled by a Muslim Brotherhood godfather/thug, Erdogan. Erdogan is set on being a new sultan over a great empire of influence and power.

15) Virtually all of the 'rebels' supported by the US are either Islamist fundamentalists representing the Muslim Bros/al Qaeda/ISIS etc or mercenary gangs/criminals. There are some Syrian militias that don't behead all non-Sunnis etc but they have no real power or backing.

16) While Syria under Bashar is far from perfect - quite far - the premise that the US is somehow helping Syrians gain freedom and democracy could not be farther from reality. In fact, under Bashar, with his steadfast commitment to free, quality, secular education; women's rights; protection for all religious groups; tolerance; blocking of extremism, health care, new constitution, elections, etc - more was being done in Syria to grow a lasting and maintainable democracy than in any other Arab country.

17) The United States has been working with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey - three countries dedicated to promoting fundamentalism and extremism and terrorism - in order to supposedly promote 'freedom and democracy' in Syria?

18) The Christians in Syria support the government and many groups of Christian leaders have begged the US - even traveled here to meet with Congress to ask us to stop supporting this Islamist revolution in Syria. The Christians fight in the Syrian Army and National Defense Force - NOT the 'moderate rebel groups'.

Starting to get a clue how complicated - and WRONG - this all is?
