Why do the majority of Syrians support Assad?

Postby Robin Hood » Mon Feb 29, 2016 8:32 pm

Last year, CNN's "Amanpour" program and the Guardian broke the story of a systematic torture program by the al-Assad regime, and the 55,000 gruesome photos taken by a Syrian government photographer-turned-defector -- codenamed "Caesar" -- that will almost certainly serve as evidence if there's ever a war crimes trial.

When Bradley Manning broke the stories of US forces atrocities in Iraq ...... the Government arrested and imprisoned him but those he identified were never prosecuted. Edward Snowden and Julian Assange are both in the US governments sights and the same fate awaits them. Again all those exposed by their leaks, who clearly had a case to answer, were never prosecuted, in many cases not even identified.

But ‘Caesar’ is hailed as courageous hero by the MSM for exposing ‘attrocities’ the US attributes to Assad. But what do we know about this anonymous Caesar? Nothing!

The photos I have never seen but, do we know when they were taken, who took them and where? We have only Caesers statement that these murders were down to Assad. I honestly cannot see Assad, if it was him, hanging on to such damning evidence. There could be another reason ..... like, to show the World the atrocities carried out by FSA/rebels supported by the west, or by Islamic fundamentalists like ISIS. Truth is, nobody knows with any degree of certainty anything about these photos. Unless those questions are answered the accusations are nothing more than hypothesis!

Virtually all posted links condemning Assad use primarily three sources of information, either directly or indirectly. The first is Caesars 55,000 photos , the second is the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights and third, the Syrian Network for Human Rights. :|

The first we know little or nothing about, the second is an anti-Assad, terrorist supporting one-man band, with a somewhat dubious history and is based in a semi detached council house in the Coventry. He also manages to run a couple of clothes shops for his ‘day job’! He does not appear to have an academic background neither is he a journalist. A man who has not set foot in Syria for over fifteen years and gets ALL his information from anti-Assad terrorist in the rebel held areas. It is know and proven that he distorts casualty figures by including deaths of rebels and foreign mercenaries in his ‘civilian’ casualties ...... and yet he is the primary source for the MSM when identifying casualties and events in Syria. :o

The Syrian Network of human Rights has a very similar and dubious background.

http://helenaglass.net/2015/10/02/syrian-observatory-and-syrian-network-of-human-rights-a-uk-hoax/

...... and yet those who use these as their primary information sources call 'Global Research', 'Blacklisted News', 'Information Clearing House' and the other numerous and independent web sites ....... unreliable and biased???? Most of the anti-Assad/Putin/Hezbollah/Iran proponents information comes from two men ............ not even credible, professionally run, accredited organisations! :roll:

A few replies to the ‘Googled’ question “Why do the Syrian people support Assad”, I thought maybe just a few examples would suffice to present the other side of this difference of opinion!

Good idea! :idea: Will you tell them or shall I? :wink: :D

Name anywhere where the elections are completely 'free-and-fair' ? Look at the current circus in the US .... Sanders could be the peoples choice but the 750 unelected 'super delegates' could decide to make Hillary their candidate! If you read even a couple of the links the OP has nothing to do with elections ....... it is about why he is the front runner and it is not because the Syrian people like him. It is because he is the lesser of two evils. Stability under Assad ..... or a Caliphate under Shariah Law, if the US gets its 'moderate' terrorists into power! :roll:

Because the Arabs on their own are democratic? :lol: And why you don't mention the Turks along with the yanks and the Russians? The Turks are also meddling in the internal affairs of Syria and Iraq trying to secure their own interests.

Bullshit... they seem perfectly capable to revolt and bring down any regime but then they go and choose something like Muslim Brotherhood or even worst Al Qaeda and ISIS. Cyprus has also suffered by the actions of the British, the Americans and the Turks... but still we have a democracy.
