COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MARY DEJEVSKY IN THE INDEPENDENT
"We have to accept that Assad will win in Syria"
Here’s what that should say, were the piece not the trashy propaganda that it, in fact, is, "We have to accept that the legitimate government of Syria is going to win"
Further, the legitimate government is going to win over a terrible mob of mercenary killers dumped into the country by Saudi Arabia and Turkey, thugs supplied and recruited and paid by those two countries plus the United States, Qatar, and Israel with additional help from Britain and France.
Well, thank God that something awful is going to end up right for once.
Assad's is a pretty decent government supported by many factions in Syria, including Christians.
And note that his army has stood by him for five years of this deliberately-induced horror, despite many efforts at bribes and inducements from outside.
It says a lot for the respect he commands in much of the Syrian population.
The Neocons will not be happy, but so what?
They are in fact as close to Nazis as we have in the Western World today.
