Assad is positioned as tyrannical leader who is inspecting his spoils of a war on his own people. A pro Assad demonstration is naturally, how else could it be, described as “well orchestrated” with people shouting “God, Syria, Bashar”.
Syria has won a battle against NATO and the GCC by voting for a new constitution, implementing reforms, and defeating the insurgency in Homs ~ all while maintaining calm enough to enter into an agreement with the UN and Arab League.Western mainstream Media however, cannot allow NATO to be defeated in the minds of Western populations, so media need a sufficient dose of SPIN.
The yes of the people of Syria to the new Syrian constitution has been too hard a slap into the face of “Charade Arabism” of the face of the sellout clowns of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, dressing for a public Arabian Nights Disney theater, reinforcing all stereotypes of what the Palestinian scholar Edward Said described as “Orientalism”, while being nothing but stooges, vice kings and enforcers of the Anglo-American Empire. Rich ~ Super Rich stooges ~ but stooges and sell outs none the less.
Or, for those who really can think, a few words about the fact that the Arab League is Europe`s new colonial administration, while the UN has a separate contract with NATO, so the dichotomy was actually not that significant after all?
The “demand” that Bashar Al-Assad steps down is removed. Political dialog about the aspirations of the people of Syria shall be initiated.Now what is new about that? Syria has been in a state of low intensity conflict with Israel since 1973. The Golan Highs are occupied. Mossad and colleagues are extremely active in Syria and against Syrian interests in Lebanon. Reforms were long awaited and to everyone’s surprise ~ at least to the surprise of honest reporters ~ Syria began implementing the most wide reaching reforms any Arab country ever has implemented in the midst of being under attack by forces who are financed, supplied, led by the world’s most powerful military alliance.Four new political parties have been established and recognized. Election laws more transparent than any of the one in neighboring Arab Nations and definitely more “democratic” than the non existing ones in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.An amnesty had been granted for those caught up in the violence; those with no blood on their hands went free.A referendum gave the people a new constitution, more democratic than any of the neighboring nations and most certainly more Arabic than that of the countries led by “orientalist dress up clowns”.In fact Syria is a progressive Arab Nation and given peace it would be a strong Arab nation that provides regional stability ~ guaranties that the issue of Palestine is not taken off the table, and that the Arab league better begins working on behalf of Arab nations. It is these very factors about Syria which guaranty that the war on Syria will continue, regardless how many victories it`s people may achieve against Imperialism.
That the UN monitors the ceasing of military aggression both from the side of the so called “opposition” and that of the Syrian Military Forces. Now since NATO and the UN have signed a separate contract in 2008 ~ one that was kept off the media's radar for years ~ it is doubtful how the UN can be an impartial monitor.The victory for Syria lies in the fact that the demand of military intervention is off the table. On the other hand, however, it is most likely that the monitors will be abused to document “incidences” that could be the necessary pretext for renewed demands for military aggression against Syria.Another risk factor for Syria is, that it will be more easy for militant insurgents to dig in, entrench themselves in “safe zones” where the Syrian forces won´t be able to operate and maintain law and order without making themselves vulnerable for being blamed and positioned as aggressors.It is a security nightmare for Syrian security forces, who, however, have years of experience of dealing with infiltration and terrorism.
That both sides shall grant access for humanitarian aid to disputed areas by maintaining a daily 2 hours cease fire.
That the Syrian government shall release prisoners who have been arrested during demonstrations.At this point it is worth remembering that the Syrian government already months ago has granted a general amnesty for all who had been arrested in the cause of the unrests who did not have blood on their hands.The government of Syria is in no way interested in crowding its prisons so it should not be an issue at all.
The Syrian government should grant foreign journalists free access to Syria which it has done for months, provided that it were journalists, not agents, and that the Syrian government could guaranty their safety. After all, we have seen how the death of a journalist can be abused by Western Main Stream Media.Another thought coming to mind at this point is that Private Bradley Manning, who released a video in which US troops knowingly murdered journalists still is in custody and under conditions described by many as torture.
That the government shall allow the population to gather and demonstrate peacefully. also that is no problem for Syria ~ it seems to be a far greater problem for Jyllands Posten however, that the people of Homs peacefully gathered at the visit of their President Bashar Al Assad, shouting paroles like ” God, Syria, Bashar “.This is the real Syria ~ the Syria which neither Jyllands Posten nor other Main Stream Western Media will allow its readers to get to know about. No matter how many Western Journalists Syria grants a visa to.
A stable Syria could indeed bring so much stability to the region that the unthinkable happens ~ Syria, Iraq and Iran in a united front against Zionism and Anglo-American Hegemony.
