Assad v. Isis

THE ABSURD TIMES

Illustration: The six corporations that own over 98% of all media in the U.S. You can see the numbers. Pacifica is one exception that now owns an amazing 7 stations and it was under attack by corporations. Free Speech TV and Amy Goodman on Democracy are amazing exceptions, and if you are looking for the truth, that is the place to start.

Assad v. Isis

Just to summarize, Assad in Syria is secular. He does not interfere with freedom of religion or dress. The so-called “free Syrian Army” supplies weapons to the Wahabbi of purveyors of Isilanity. Assad has protected the Christians and other minorities.

Putin was invited in by Assad to Syria. Thus, Russia is the only country carrying out military activity legally. All other forces are there illegally according to international law and a slew of Geneva Convention regulations.

I don’t see any reason to say any more. Below is a full discussion of all the issues:

A new report by the Pulitzer-winning veteran journalist Seymour Hersh says the Joint Chiefs of Staff has indirectly supported Bashar al-Assad in an effort to help him defeat jihadist groups. Hersh reports the Joint Chiefs sent intelligence via Russia, Germany and Israel on the understanding it would be transmitted to help Assad push back Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State. Hersh also claims the military even undermined a U.S. effort to arm Syrian rebels in a bid to prove it was serious about helping Assad fight their common enemies. Hersh says the Joint Chiefs’ maneuvering was rooted in several concerns, including the U.S. arming of unvetted Syrian rebels with jihadist ties, a belief the administration was overly focused on confronting Assad’s ally in Moscow, and anger the White House was unwilling to challenge Turkey and Saudi Arabia over their support of extremist groups in Syria. Hersh joins us to detail his claims and respond to his critics.
