Anti-Assad Conspiracy: Bloody crime or paranoid fantasy

Three people have reportedly been killed by security forces across Syria on Wednesday. Bashar Al-Assad has spoken to supporters in Damascus for the second time in the last 24 hours, reiterating his dismissal of calls to step down. He’s blaming the ten-month-long unrest in the country on foreign-funded terrorists, promising to crush them with extreme prejudice. The UN says Damascus has stepped up its crackdown on protesters, but Assad claims no order was ever given to fire on civilians. The President’s pledged commitment to Democratic reform, promising a referendum on a new constitution by March, and free elections soon after. RT talks to independent news editor James Corbett.

One Response to Anti-Assad Conspiracy: Bloody crime or paranoid fantasy

    At long last the Syrian people, like their Libyan, Tunisian and Egyptian brothers and sisters, have broken the fear barrier and risen up against the brutal, fascist dictatorship of the traitor Bashar al-Asad. It’s only a matter of time until he falls, but I fear many rivers of blood will have to be crossed before then.

    Like his father Hafiz, who ordered the mass murder of Palestinian refugees in Tal al-Zaatar refugee camp in Lebanon in 1976, in addition to murdering upwards of 10,000 of his own people in Hama in 1982, Bashar is interested only in power. And to retain power he will do anything, including prostituting himself to Israel (see, for example, Will the USA take Makhlouf’s Israel bait?).

    There are no American or Zionist conspiracies here. This is the Arab people rising up against dictatorship and stagnation. And the last countries on earth that want us to succeed are the US and Israel (in addition to that abominable mafia state, Russia).
