“300,000 were massacred by all means including chemical weapons …” says the Turkish devil-fox, Ahmet Davutoglu, to the Dumb Hen of CNN, Christiane Amanpour. Davutoglu claims that 300,000 casualties in Syria were all the result of Bashar Al-Assad’s barbarity. After watching this dumb clip, I asked myself: will the West ever learn? Haven’t we all heard this same rhetoric about Saddam Hussein made by dumb western journalists and TV hosts who always insist that every Middle Eastern dictatorship under the sun, must be replaced, when in fact, every dictatorship in the Middle East, which was replaced, was replaced by Islamist devils?
So is it true that “300,000 were massacred by all means [in Syria] including using chemical weapons …” all done by Bashar Al-Assad? (see interview at 8:00)
A quick look at this issue will show that TV is the worst medium to learn. First of all, the evidence clearly shows that it was terrorists who used chemical weapons. In December 2012, the chemical plant SYSACCO 29 kilometers (18 mi) east of Aleppo was taken by rebel fighters from the Al-Nusra Front. The factory produces chlorine among other chemicals. On 5 November 2014, the Syrian UN-ambassador Bashar al-Jaafari, said “terrorist organizations stole about 200 tons of [chlorine gas] from” the factory. On 30 May 2013, it was Turkey’s own security forces that had arrested Al-Nusra Front fighters in the southern provinces of Mersin and Adana near the Syrian border and confiscated 2 kg of sarin gas.
Secondly, no one knows the exact numbers and estimates of deaths in the Syrian Civil War and no serious expert would argue that Assad “massacred 300,000” by using “chemical weapons”.
The numbers on the death toll (be it civilians or terrorists) vary between 133,585 to 306,270. On 15 January 2015, the United Nations put out an estimate of 220,000 that had died in the war.
While the anti-Bashar raise the numbers, but if we take the middle ground, 220,000, and then take what anti-Bashar human rights watch groups say we will find a real surprise. Such “casualties in Syria were: “22,624 Arab, European, Asian, American and Australian fighters from the ISIS, al-Nusra Front, Junoud al-Sham battalion, Jund Al-Aqsa battalion, Jund al-Sham Movement and al-Khadra’.”
And we ask, is ISIS and Al-Nusra corpses “civilian casualties”?
Then we have 34,838, other Islamist terrorist were rightfully killed from the so-called rebel fighters while 44,000 were killed from the Syrian military fighting these terrorists. This is over 100,000 killed in battles between Syrian military and terrorists. There were 63,000 civilians killed as a result of the battles which in every war civilian casualties always happen.
Did Bashar murder his own population?
Well this depends on which side of the fence you support, the terrorists or the government. Governments always kill terrorists and some do it more ruthlessly than others. The liberal media wants you to believe an agenda and will do anything to lure you to think what is good is bad and what is bad is good. They would like you to believe that Bashar and Saddam were like Hitler and Stalin.
While dictators always squash rebellions by killing, Turkey kills Kurds, so did Saddam and Hafez Al-Assad killed tens of thousands from the Muslim Brotherhood’s rebellion in Hama in 1982 which tried to topple the government. Hama needed killing just as Japan and Germany needed it. Turkey trying to find the spec in Bashar’s eye need to first confess the genocide of one million Armenians, which still needs confessing. CNN’s Amanpour whole focus is on how “bad Bashar is”.
“Turkey is a NATO member” argues The Dumb Hen of CNN, Amanpour, and “should do more on fighting ISIS” she remarks to the devil-fox.
This Devil-Uglu as a response declares that they “did so much to combat ISIS”. And the evidence he provides is simple: “Turkey declared ISIS as a terrorist organization through cabinet decision”.
So I guess declaring that the devil as “a devil” should suffice, but the exorcism will not be necessary since what needs to be exorcised is Syria from the demon Bashar. According to this devil, the demon is Assad, not ISIS.
When the Dumb Hen of CNN, Amanpour, asks about destroying ISIS without destroying Assad, he answers that “this would not be enough since another terrorist regime will arise”.
Destroying ISIS will cause another terrorist regime to arise?
Yet without challenge by the Dumb Hen of CNN, to even counter: wait a minute here, Saudi Arabia and Turkey are already “causing another terrorist regime to arise” by supporting al-Qaeda’s affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, which identically operates like ISIS, with all the blood and gore. This also includes a third one, Jaish al-Fatah (Army of Conquest), all of which, including ISIS, desire an Islamic Caliphate.
Logic concludes that with Islam’s Bay’at (allegiance) that such factions, after ousting Bashar, will be glad to give their allegiance to a grand caliphate in the future: Turkey.
Yet the entire interview goes along with the necessity to “punish Bashar”. The increase of refugees is not something “Turkey would like to prevent” as Davotuglu claims. The idea in telling Muslims who flee from Syria to come to Turkey while Turkey gladly provides them food, is all done in order to gain the trust of Sunni populations in Syria. This is the whole show, Turkey wants the Muslim world to believe that Turkey is the answer to all the problems in the Muslim World, when in reality, it is the cause of all the problems from spreading Islamism to reviving a dead empire like the Ottomans.
The rise of ISIS, according to this devil, did not come from Al-Qaeda, but from the West for refusing to end Bashar Al-Assad’s dictatorship.
Again, the same recent historic scenarios are being repeated and they go like this: lets find another Saddam, blame him as a world dictator, brutal and such … when in reality this so-called ‘brute’ needs to be ‘expunged’, not because he is a ‘dictator’, but because he is allied to Shiite Iran.
Turkey wants Syria. Period. The reason is simple. Turkey seeks to have regional influence and does not yet have its original Ottoman hegemony and control over the region, since it is in need to first establish regional partners. Iran already partners with Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq and can easily spread its tentacles into the region which is the fear of Israel and the U.S.
Turkey would not mind it if they controlled Syria. This is why Turkey seeks to oust Bashar Al-Assad and seeks influence in Egypt and Libya via Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist affiliated alliances.
Yet none of these issues are brought up by the Dumb Hen of CNN.
The other major problem for Turkey is that Turkey lacks energy sources and predominately relies on Russia and Iran for its oil and gas while Turkey is the gate for Iran’s export for oil and gas into Europe. If these arms are cut off, Turkey’s blood life ends.
There was no challenge by the Dumb Hen of CNN regarding the oil Turkey steals which already has $800 million worth, that ISIS obtained from regions it occupied this year in the Rumeilan oil fields in northern Syria — and most recently Mosul. All being siphoned by ISIS and is being sold in Turkey. They have laid pipes from villages near the Turkish border at Hatay. Similar pipes exist also at the Turkish border regions of Kilis, Urfa and Gaziantep. They transfer the oil to Turkey and parlay it into cash. They take the oil from the refineries at zero cost. Using primitive means, they refine the oil in areas close to the Turkish border and then sell it via Turkey.
However, Turkey has a foundation in NATO and unlike Iran it can tremendously influence the West while it uses Bashar Al-Assad as its scapegoat devil. But it would do no good to explain all this to the Dumb Hen of CNN since the major media is the main spring to millions of fools.
