Propping up Assad: Iran increases military support to Syria

Feb 20, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Jerusalem Post

Iran's stepping up of aid for Assad, along with weapons deliveries from Russia, have helped the Syrian leader stay in power when his forces have no decisive edge on the battlefield.

Thatís remarkable!! There are lots of homeless people in Canada. There are also some reports that quite a number of families with children live below poverty line, which means that there are malnourished children in Canada. Now you are bragging how Canada takes in refugees from Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, because they are less fortunate. None of these people were fleeing their countries in significant numbers before they were bombed, invaded, and occupied by the West; in other words before our countries made them less fortunate.
Yet, you support Canadian tax payersí money to be spent on bombing and invading these countries, making these pople less fortunate, forcing them to flee our bombing and occupation,and come to Canada to ask for our wafare. How smart!!!
YES

Seems far more human than you supporting Assad in bombing children out of their homes, starving the homeless even more with their mothers, fathers, and grandparents, shooting missiles at their homes, businesses, schools, hospitals and yes playground, gee I must really be sick sending food, water and medicine to the needy in Syria, maybe we should all send money to Assad to finish the job with his rather large collection of chemical weapons, oh I forgot, he just used them again, you really need help

When we look back to 2010-2011, the Syrian people were not that upset with Assad, so you would be correct, however they did want some changes, nothing earth shattering, just more freedoms of choice, higher incomes, better schools, more freedom to make choices, however Assad disagreed. The protests started and yes Assad still kept the sects separated and non fighting, however the protests got heated up and louder so Assad had to do something to calm the crowds or his people, so he sent in the snipers at first to just spray the crowds, not hurt but scare them, and again he was just trying to bring his people into line and stay in their groups or sects so that they can be happy, but the protesting grew larger and moved to other cities, still no one died but the protesting got louder and Assad had to set an example and really scare them so the order to the snipers was to give them a lesson and in March 2011, they did people started dying, now the protestors were simple people that ran businesses, doctors, lawyers, bakers, students, teachers, mothers, fathers but NO soldiers just regular folks, now more protestors died and these protestors started to fight back with rocks, sticks, anything that could fly but NO GUNS, not much of a match to be honest, but slowly they got guns from some SAA posts, then the deaths started piling up and more guns started surfacing and helicopter gun ships showed up and jets wth bombs and gas, then neighboring countries decided to donate light weapons and ammunition and communication equipment to help the weak protestors and the rest is history, but yeah Assad did try to keep people from protesting ad blowing stuff up, he did send the SAA to the sunni areas to blow their shit up and the Sunni found out that Assad was protecting the Shite, Alawite and the Christians and of course this pissed off the Sunni, which of course is the majority of Syria, now these boys found out that Assad and the Regime gave all the toys and money to the Alawites, all the government positions, all the rewards and most of this may never have been known if Assad did not make it quite visible with the destruction of the sunni areas, the death squads of Assads called the Sabitha, murdering 120 women and children violently, and of course the chemical gas attack killing 1200, or the 100,000 by barrel bombs, helicopter gun ships, jets with missiles, and scuds and grenade launchers. Well he party just kept getting bigger because now Assad invited the neighbor boys to bring their arsenal and them Hezbollah boys just love to kill sunni but they did not count on all them al Qaeda types coming from Iraq ad Europe to kill Hezbollah, so Assad called in reinforcements from his friends in Iran and the fireworks just kept getting better and better, now Assad surrounded the Rebel controlled areas and instead of bombing them with barrel bombs at first he surrounded them with Hezbolah and SAA and starve them out so that these people even Rebels would surrender because of the starvation, god help them.

cont'd
So now the juicy part, the Sunni will just not die, surrender nor give up it is a stalemate even with all the shit against them the Rebels are splintered, starving, out of ammunition but it is a STALEMATE, so now Qatar, and Saudi think this is not nice and they really do not like Assad anyway so they donate just a couple a billion dollars worth of heavy weapons to blow the helicopters out of the sky, guns to fight not only the Hezbollah and Iranians but the cotton picken al Qaeda that at first came to help the Rebels and now want a piece of the land themselves. Now you have to go back 3 years and see Assad releasing al Qaeda leaders out of jail, even the bin Laden buddy that was killed a few days ago, and Assad even gave these guys some oil revenues to go buy some more weapons, So now the juicy part, the Sunni will just not die, surrender nor give up it is a stalemate even with all the shit against them the Rebels are splintered, starving, out of ammunition but it is a STALEMATE, so now Qatar, and Saudi think this is not nice and they really do not like Assad anyway so they donate just a couple a billion dollars worth of heavy weapons to blow the helicopters out of the sky, guns to fight not only the Hezbollah and Iranians but the cotton picken al Qaeda that at first came to help the Rebels and now want a piece of the land themselves.

So are you with me so far, along come Mr. Lavrov and the Resolution, he did not like the first 2 but liked the watered down one and agreed to it, and says if the Assad Regime and the SAA do not support it he will support any resolution hat the UN deams necessary to stop the war, now the real question is WHO is coming to the war next, I am getting a front row seat this otta be a good one, no one seems to be budging, popcorn anyone

The good news is that these so called "moderate" rebels are in a war of attrition with the AlQaeda terrorists and Islamic extremists! Once these morons all wipe each other out, peace will finally return to Syria.

You cannot sell your regurgitated garbage, George. The reality speaks very loud!!! Leaders of countries the West recently democratized were in these countries for 40 years or so, and population was not massively leaving the countries. People started leaving when Western democratization of these countries started. That means that Western interventions in these countries, and not inadequacy of these leaders, are chasing the population out.

After all, these leaders are from these countries, and belong there, just as the rest of the population; and the West does not belong there in any shape or form. Itís time for the West to start respecting Countriesí borders. It is peoples' rights to be left alone to organize their lives.

Serbs had okay leaders, but Yugoslavia was much more complex. Besides, it was the first country on the Reichís list of Regime Changes, so nobody understood what was actually happening. The scenario for Yugoslavia was very carefully prepared. The UN, and NATO got involved from the start, and the UN at a time was fully in the business of Reich. China and Russia were going through rough times of transformation, and there was no one to oppose the big powersí plans. Reich was so arrogant that NATO even bombed Chinese embassy in Belgrade without consequences. Now there are some changes in Geopolitical power distribution, and hopefully this time Russia and China will help Syria prevail.
I have said from the start that everything that's come after the attack on the FRY is a direct consequence of that outrage,i was thinking more about the leaders like Tadic and Zoran Dinjic who paid with his life for his treachery,and even Nikolic all these guys surrendered to the Reich to some extent,and are still doing it.

You are absolutely right. The way Serbs were treated, or better to say mistreated, by the NATO countries, was horrible, and now they even want to join EU, which will the most likely require joining NATO. The lack of self respect is really quite unbelievable. When I said that Serb leaders were okay, I thought about Milosevic. And sure he paid for having principles and pride. The subsequent leaders are a sad case. I guess they do not have the capacity to organize their country, but want to be in the top positions, so they think that bowing to the Reich will bring some economic benefits, which is a joke. Reich is there for itself.

They left because islamic countries are shite to live in unless your part of the ruling families. Also the lax imigration polices and very generious heath and welfare thats why the poor bastards hide themselves under trucks and endure dangers to get to the West.
The irainian president is a man so vile his son couldnt live with the molestations of his father maybe phycological or phisical who knows so he comited suicide.
The previous leader the head arseholla khominei wrote the green books on islamic juresprudence contains such little gems as how to abuse children and livestock. Are these the sort of disgusting turds you hold in such high regard ?????

Yes it is unbelievable but I would like to think Serbia joining the criminal organization that bombed them for seventy eight days would be a bridge too far,most Serbs couldn't stomach that,they should have had the sense to move closer to Russia for its own sake and self respect and also defence from further Reich attacks,if the had a Government with any balls they would have taken Kosovo back.

They were not leaving before Western countries put them under sanctions (Iraq), bombed them (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya), invaded and occupied them for a decade (Afghanistan, Iraq). We have no power to influence our governments, but I am willing to bet any time that if the Western countries stopped interfering with these countries, that these people would not run to the West.

You say that these people are bad. I do not see their Governments invading your countries, but your governments have been invading their countries for centuries, and there is no end in sight. You say that you have social programs and welfare, and that they come to get it. You can afford these programs, itís from the loot you kept bringing from their countries for centuries, and you owe these people to spill a few crumbs.

I hope they are smart enough not to join NATO, but even joining EU is stupid. They have nothing to gain from that, but the EU makes such a powerful advertizing for joining their ranks. Russia would be far better choice, but Russia seems to be somehow inward oriented. May be that is smart; they learned from Afghanistan.

Kosovo looks to be lost. NATO is still there, the place is full of crime, and otherwise, people on Balkans are rather beat. 60 years of economy is destroyed. The other day the empty, falling apart factories in Kosovo were shown on TV; very sad sight. It is hard to imagine what kind of distraction of social fabric, economy, and land, the Reichís wrath leaves behind, when it attacks the country.
