Re: Syria

Nice to see Syria's first lady Asma showing her largesse whilst her husband makes orphans... she should have her British passport revoked (if not already)

Syria's first lady Asma al Assad visits school in Homs - YouTube[/QUOTE]



Photographic evidence from the testimony of a Syrian government defector codenamed "Caesar" and almost 27,000 photographs he provided; in all 55,000 such images were brought out of the country.

According to the report, Caesar worked as photographer in the military police. Once the war broke out, his work consisted entirely of documenting "killed detainees."
He photographed as many as 50 bodies a day.

Discretion warning before watching
Syria Children Were Tortured and Murdered By Assad - YouTube


Some seem to think that to oppose Assad that you have to be a supporter of ISIS and associates etc how naive...nothing is so black and white.

The people who opposed Assad, in the beginning, weren't even radicalized but asking for more Democracy and freedoms. Brutally put down by Assad.

Six years ago, a rebellious but apolitical teenager scrawled a message on the wall of his school in southern Syria.

With the so-called Arab Spring 14-year-old Syrian schoolboy Abazid from Daraa along with friends wrote "down with the regime" 'It's your turn, Doctor Bashar al-Assad' "go home".

Little did he know that by carrying out this small act of rebellion outside his school in the town of Daraa, he was lighting a fuse which would see his country burn for the next six years.

The government's response to the graffiti was swift and brutal. Abazid and 22 other boys were arrested by security forces and tortured.

The boys behind the graffiti would become unlikely revolutionaries and reluctant. refugees. Not all of them would survive the upheaval they helped unleash.

Strange that of the millions of refugees 5-6 mil they didn't run to the coast and into the loving arms of the first lady Asma. Assad and her beacon of paradise of women's rights and schooling

Re: Syria

[QUOTE=Rose Cole;1152249]You mean like this example?

"When the woman was trapped under the ceiling, they (White Helmets) didn't come to help her.

She stayed there till it was a bit before dusk when groups of people came and got her out…in pieces."

And your point is?

The White Helmets aren't a universal panacea they could have been having a party or they could have been doing their work elsewhere you just don't know.

Re: Syria

The UK and all other western governments publically state that they are in a constant war of attrition against ISIS and similar groups, to thwart the ever present danger of terrorism. Today, the head of MI5 , Andrew Parker said that ISIS aspires to commit "devastating" and "more complex" attacks in Europe. And yet, the UK supplies that very same group with weapons and ammunition that are used against us.They even train them.

Now the truth emerges: how the US fuelled the rise of Isis in Syria and Iraq.


"The war on terror, that campaign without end launched 14 years ago by George Bush, is tying itself up in ever more grotesque contortions. On Monday the trial in London of a Swedish man, Bherlin Gildo, accused of terrorism in Syria, collapsed after it became clear British intelligence had been arming the same rebel groups the defendant was charged with supporting.

The prosecution abandoned the case, apparently to avoid embarrassing the intelligence services. The defence argued that going ahead with the trial would have been an “affront to justice” when there was plenty of evidence the British state was itself providing “extensive support” to the armed Syrian opposition.

That didn’t only include the “non-lethal assistance” boasted of by the government (including body armour and military vehicles), but training, logistical support and the secret supply of “arms on a massive scale”. Reports were cited that MI6 had cooperated with the CIA on a “rat line” of arms transfers from Libyan stockpiles to the Syrian rebels in 2012 after the fall of the Gaddafi regime.

Clearly, the absurdity of sending someone to prison for doing what ministers and their security officials were up to themselves became too much. But it’s only the latest of a string of such cases. Less fortunate was a London cab driver Anis Sardar, who was given a life sentence a fortnight earlier for taking part in 2007 in resistance to the occupation of Iraq by US and British forces. Armed opposition to illegal invasion and occupation clearly doesn’t constitute terrorism or murder on most definitions, including the Geneva convention.

Re: Syria

HYPOCRISY- is the contrivance of a false appearance of virtue or goodness, while concealing real character or inclinations.

Here are extracts of the speech made by Harriet Baldwin, the Minister of State for Africa at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and Minister of State for International Development, on 17 May 2018:

"Mr President, there are few values more important to the United Kingdom than upholding international law. It is the very foundation of peace and security."

Which is why, alongside the U.S and France, we bombed another sovereign nation without UN Security Council approval and in breach of International law...

She goes on-

"Today, conflicts and tragedies in Syria, Burma, Ukraine and elsewhere have shown us the importance of this commitment and the consequences of the failure to do so. In Syria, appalling violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law by the regime and its backers continue."

And yet the UK government continue to flagrantly breach international law by funding ISIS and other terrorists groups...

She goes on-

"Enabling the meaningful participation of women in decision-making is also key to upholding the rule of law. We know inclusive decision-making processes are critical in preventing the escalation of conflict and in maintaining and supporting peace in post-conflict societies."

Eh... when I last looked Theresa May was a woman, was she not? And she was the one who signed the O.K. to bomb another country in breach of international law...

She goes on-

"Mr President, there will, sadly, be times when violations of international humanitarian law or international human rights law do occur. There must be no impunity in such instances. It is, of course, states themselves that have the primary responsibility to ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice."

So it is up to the UK themselves to bring Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Donald Trump & Emanuel Marcon et al to trial to account for their actions.

Finally, she states-

"The International Criminal Court also has a key role to play restoring peace and security. It ensures accountability, acts as a deterrent, supports victims, and helps to establish an historical narrative of accountability...
...We therefore urge all states to honour UNSCRs 1970 and 1593 by cooperating fully with the Court and its Prosecutor."

I am therefore looking forward to TM, BJ, DT & EM reporting to The Hague immediately to answer for their crimes.

The hypocrisy is quite staggering.

You mean like Putin when he says he is sending humanitarian aid to Donbas and when he says that he has invaded Ukraine to protect Russian speakers?

BTW I could use a part time job – any vacancies in your department & are you paid in US$ or Rubles?

Ironic that the USA does not recognise ICC, and in fact threatened to withdraw its forces from UN activities unless given immunity from prosecution for any war crimes they might decide to inflict upon their victims.

Re: Syria

Syrian military in full control of Damascus for first time in years.

"BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – For the first time since the start of the Syrian conflict in 2011, the city of Damascus is fully under the control of the Syrian military.

The long-time stronghold for the so-called Islamic State (ISIS), southern Damascus was the only part of the capital that was still outside of the Syrian government’s control.

However, that would change on May 19th, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) finally agreed to hold talks with the Islamic State in the area; this would lead to the latter’s surrender the next day.

The remaining Islamic State terrorists and their family members will now be transported to the vast Badiya area that was located between eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor.

With ISIS gone, the Syrian Army now free up thousands of soldiers for the upcoming offensive in the southern provinces of Al-Quneitra and Dara’a."

Re: Syria

Assad Raises Possibility of Conflict With U.S. Forces, Allies In Syria

"Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has raised the possibility of conflict between his army and U.S. forces in Syria if they do not withdraw from the country soon - prompting a warning from the Pentagon.

In an interview with Russia's RT television on May 31, Assad asserted that he is willing to negotiate with Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic oorces (SDF) that are allied with and embedded with U.S. forces and currently hold about one-quarter of Syria's territory...
