    Another batch of garbage uploaded into lemmings' heads by US media

    The Arab League group report from Syria got translated to English and leaked on the Columbia University web site. It is currently still available here (not for long, I'd guess)

    http://www.columbia.edu/~hauben/Repo...er_Mission.pdf

    "So the report was either ignored (by Western corporate media) or mercilessly destroyed - by Arab media, virtually all of it financed by either the House of Saud or Qatar. It was not even discussed - because it was prevented by the GCC from being translated from Arabic into English and published in the Arab League's website.

    Until it was leaked. Here it is, in full.

    The report is adamant. There was no organized, lethal repression by the Syrian government against peaceful protesters. Instead, the report points to shady armed gangs as responsible for hundreds of deaths among Syrian civilians, and over one thousand among the Syrian army, using lethal tactics such as bombing of civilian buses, bombing of trains carrying diesel oil, bombing of police buses and bombing of bridges and pipelines."

    "Instead, BRICS members Russia and China, and large swathes of the developing world see it as the Syrian government fighting heavily armed foreign mercenaries. The report largely confirms these suspicions."

    (Asia Times Online :: Exposed: The Arab agenda in Syria)

    In other words, the US regime is again supporting terrorist mercenary groups to kill people and destabilize "inconvenient" sovereign countries. Nothing surprising here.

    Meanwhile, the American Politburo continues to bombard the public with their BS

    Umm, so it's the armed gangs that are shelling Homs as we speak?

    (I don't exactly see the connection, but anyway)

    No, it is the Syrian government trying to defend law and order in their country. The fact that it involves "shelling" simply demonstrates the magnitude of the events that take place there. Figuratively speaking, you can't fight tanks with pea shooters. An easy guess is that the same heavy armaments that US regime supplied to terrorists in Libya just a few months ago are now getting redirected to the terrorists in Syria.

    That is, of course, if we assume that any "shelling" actually takes place as described, since the sources are mostly American and, as always, their reports are assumed to be fictional until independently proven otherwise. Until Russia explicitly confirms that the "shelling" of any excessive sort took place, there's no point to even consider any "shelling" in any serious degree.

    This post is 21.7% less interesting than your most "most disgraced military in the world" post.

    I do have to ask though, are you really a supporter of the current regime in Syria?

    I'm not mean, I'm honest. I could have said it was 89% less interesting.

    Andrey's back!

    Dude, seriously, they pay you to write this crap? Or, is it just that you've been reading the Russian sites, who are paid to write this crap?

    Seriously though, please link to a non-Russian source sometimes, ok?

    I must admit my error- he linked to a very interesting report at Columbia, dated 18 January 2012:

    74. In some cities, the Mission sensed the extreme tension, oppression and injustice from which the Syrian
    people are suffering. However, the citizens believe the crisis should be resolved peacefully through Arab
    mediation alone, without international intervention. Doing so would allow them to live in peace and complete
    the reform process and bring about the change they desire. The Mission was informed by the opposition,
    particularly in Dar‘a, Homs, Hama and Idlib, that some of its members had taken up arms in response to the
    suffering of the Syrian people as a result of the regime’s oppression and tyranny; corruption, which affects all
    sectors of society; the use of torture by the security agencies; and human rights violations.

    there are 112 reporters listed in the appendix about journalists granted access, including several Americans and Euro's.

    But: only two channels had been barred, namely Al-
    Jazeera and Al-Arabiya, which the Government believes to be targeting Syria and its system of
    government.

    Syria has always been a model of democracy...It's a little known fact that Bashar al-Assad has been up for the Nobel Peace Prize, four times since taking office.

    Democracy? Does it matter? If memory serves, Iran was a model democracy once. But that democracy did not want to share its oil... The rest followed. The Fascist regime in Chile so devotedly supported by the USA - was that some form of a model democracy? Any Nobel Peace Prizes there? Or maybe Afghan terrorists were more democratic?

    USA cares about "democracy" as much as the next criminal. I.e. not at all. Criminals know only one principle: "Crime pays if you get away with it". At that is the main founding principle on which USA is built.

    By the way, did you even read the report? It doesn't support your claims at all.

    Didn't you mean to say Best Korea?

    Incidentally, it looks like the concrete traffic cone is finally going to open in Best Korea, 23 years behind schedule.

    Meanwhile, our current reincarnation of the proverbial "freedom fighters" in Syria can't get their story straight: Colonel of so called Free Syrian Army (FSA - that's the "opposition", BTW) Aref Hammoud claimed the responsibility for today's twin terrorist attacks in the city of Aleppo, saying that "It was a response to the regime's bombardment of Homs." At the same time Colonel Riad al-Asaad of the very same FSA blamed it on the "regime".

    Free Syrian Army blames Assad for Aleppo bombing - SYRIA - FRANCE 24

    Guess which version will get approved by censorship and receive government permission to be released inside the US propaganda dome?
