Who would you rather have as your President?
President Assad, walking freely amongst the Syrian Arab Army.
These are the remarkable scenes from East Ghouta when President Assad went to visit Syrian Arab Army soldiers and refugees recently liberated by his troops. Mr Assad drove himself from Damascus to the areas recently cleansed of terrorists to thank the SAA and allies for establishing security in the war torn area.
Compared to the fakery and showmanship of Donald Trump.
… Compared to Trump and his ridiculous entourage.
Trump is somewhere in this lot, never coming into contact with real people. The comparison reiterates the clear differences of a clueless, third rate, reality tv clown with false hair and false skin colour and a President not frightened of his own people and having the decency to thank and support those that overwhelmingly elected him.
There looked to be only one security man with him, no armoured car, driving his own Honda to a place that only hours earlier had been the site of fierce battles. No bullet proof vest, just as if he were a normal individual visiting a shopping centre or similar. It would have been so easy for Mr Assad and his family to have escaped to a friendly nation when the war on Syria broke out. Despite having a host of powerful countries arming and paying vicious mercenaries to defeat him, he made the decision to try and save his country. Facing such overwhelming odds, the fake Trump would have disappeared quicker than when he dodged the draft many years ago with a very minor foot condition.
Again and again we see these useless Presidents and Prime Ministers spouting about a glorious cause – one that they never actually stood to fight for themselves and it’s always somebody else’s sons and daughters that die, never their own.
I can’t fathom out why people can’t see for themselves that these big talking politicians only ever send YOUR children into harm’s way, whilst keeping their own safely under wraps. All the phony, heartfelt pleas of why they have been forced to order the carpet bombing of country ‘x’ to rid them of their evil leader, for country ‘x’s own good!
The trembling lower lip never fooled me from as early as I can remember. They weren’t even good at it, including Ronald Reagan. Tony Blair was one of the better performers, but then again psychopaths are renowned to be excellent actors. Blair, just like Wolfowitz, Bush, Cheney and the other illusionists, still deny they did anything wrong, even though they were recorded on film announcing their wild claims. ‘I never said that!’ is the frequent response to being reminded of a quote when they were promoting war.
These lunatics keep getting away with it. A common accusation by Westerners is that Muslims are aggressive and thrive on war while completely ignoring Bush Junior’s claim that ‘God told him to do it’ and Tony Blair’s conversion to some Christian sect as soon as he was ousted as Prime Minister. How can Islam be accused of pro war fanatics and Christianity never mentioned when it’s ‘our’ leaders that are slaughtering innocent people? ‘Double standards’ isn’t a powerful enough description for Western killers.
President Assad visiting the SAA isn’t a claim to victory, it’s a message of support and thanks from the Syrian people, he’s more than aware that he has a long road to travel to even contemplate victory.
Unlike this idiot Bush He couldn’t stop himself from claiming victory only weeks into the assault on Iraq. Something like 3,000 servicemen and women would be killed and tens of thousands catastrophically injured in the preceding years and even now they still can’t claim victory. Looking at historic aftermaths, the Americans only ever partially withdraw from the county they attempt to conquer.
Locations of US bases worldwide.
The US is like a particularly odious stench. Once it’s in a place, you can’t get rid of it. Why there is any need for them to be plastered across Europe over 70 years, after the violence ended is one of life’s mysteries.
If success is based on quality of leaders, the only way is up for the US. I still think Clinton would have been worse due to her mental health issues. Anyone that laughs over the death of another human being in the way she did, has some serious problems but the difference in the two US candidates were always marginal. The increasingly more stupid Presidential roll of honour does beg the question, ‘where will it all end?’
Is there a limit to how stupid they can go? A President that has to use twitter to announce his policies and can barely put a coherent sentence together will take a lot of beating. The real governors of the world will have to excel themselves to bring about the presidency of a more ludicrous commander in chief. Sadly and worryingly, we shouldn’t write them off.
Bashar al Assad.
Having virtually had the Presidency forced on him, President Assad has defied logic to have survived this long. If it weren’t for the death of his brother, who was being groomed to take over the presidency, Mr Assad would probably be treating eye patients, which was his speciality before events turned the way they did. In spite of Western accusations, Assad was beginning to reform the Syrian state, introducing new laws to fight corruption amongst other things. The media takes great pleasure in announcing that the Syrian democracy is flawed without explaining that the thugs they have been cheerleading for don’t actually believe in a democratic system at all. The leading terrorists believe they know what’s best for the people and a working democracy would only interfere in ideology and a fair justice system. Their crude and medieval crime and punishment laws would be the best way for suspected criminals to be judged.
I have a strong suspicion that this is one of the reasons the Syrian population appear to have ceased supporting the militants. They glimpsed into the future and didn’t particularly like what they saw. There is a lot to be said for a secular state, allowing everyone to follow their own faith while under the umbrella of a government with no religious obligation. If the West was trying to create a perfect society in which everyone would be equal, which they aren’t, the last people they would install would be the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement or their miscreant friends. They haven’t even been able to agree amongst themselves, and have constantly been reduced to armed conflict, little chance a state with 25 million citizens.
