France’s secret war against the Syrian people
By OzHouse On February 25, 2012 ·

During the assault on the rebel stronghold in the Homs district of Bab Amr, the Syrian army took more than 1,500 prisoners, mostly foreigners. Of these, a dozen French nationals requested the status of prisoner of war, refusing to give their identity, rank and unit of assignment. One of them is a Colonel working for the DGSE transmission service.

In arming the Wahhabi Legion and feeding it with satellite intelligence, France conducted a secret war against the Syrian army, which caused more than 3,000 deaths among the military, and more than 1,500 among civilians in ten months of fighting. ….

France has sought Russia’s assistance to negotiate with Syria the release of its prisoners of war.
Mainstream media reported this news 9 days later. Made it an old news. see the different tones in report.

Thirteen French officers 'captured by Syrian Army'

Thirteen French officers have been captured by Syrian forces according to the Lebanon-based Daily Star newspaper, the first mainstream media outlet to report on rumours of Western troops on the ground.

8:07AM GMT 05 Mar 2012
The French foreign ministry dismissed the report, however, telling the Daily Telegraph that not a single French soldier is on Syrian soil.

But the defence ministry was less categorical, saying it neither confirmed nor denied the claim.
I would have guessed you would be in favor of goverments killing its own people in mass for asking for rights....suck up to your great Syria dictatorship and enjoy the deaths of the civilians.

This is the most hypocritical accusation. Bush killed a lot more innocent civilians in a war under the name of "democrats". In his war in Mid-east, more than hrundreds of thousands people have died, much more than Saddam or any other "dictators" had done.

So said rebels do same thing as Assad does.


The Burial Brigade of Homs

An Executioner for Syria's Rebels Tells His Story

By Ulrike Putz in Beirut

Human Rights Watch has condemned abuses committed by Syrian rebels in their stronghold of Homs. But one member of a rebel "burial brigade" who has executed four men by slitting their throats defended his work in an interview with SPIEGEL ONLINE. "If we don't do it, nobody will hold these perpetrators to account," he said.

Syria is not as bad as Western media say. It is only a victim of the "Spring of Arab". How bad is it? Just see what happened in Iraq.
Patriarch al-Rahi: Syria is Closest to Democracy in Arab World, Needs the Reforms Announced by President al-Assad

He regretted the violence and destruction taking place in Syria, saying that there are destructive plans in world politics and that the people don't want the extremists who are receiving financial, military and political support from certain countries.

"How can the Arab Spring be a spring when people are killed every day? They talk about Iraq and democracy while a million Christians out of one and a half million were forced to leave Iraq… where is democracy in Iraq?" he asked, saying that this so-called spring is closer to a winter of war, destruction and killing.

"What good is democracy if it wants to kill people and throw away stability?" Patriarch al-Rahi wondered.
40 Turkish intelligence agents captured in Syria
Sunday, February 19, 2012
Western officials fear that Iranian military presence along with Russian aid could turn Syria into a center of international friction much worse than the struggle inside Syria. They fear that the control over actions in Syria will be taken over by a Russian-Iranian "partnership" which would exclude the European Union and Turkey and that U.S. involvement could be too late and inefficient.

Turkey fears this development after a diplomatic crisis erupted with Syria when more than 40 Turkish intelligence officers were captured by the Syrian army. Over the past week, Turkey has been conducting intensive negotiations with Syria in order to secure their freedom, and Syria insists that their release will be conditioned on the extradition of Syrian officers and soldiers that defected and are currently in Turkey.
U.S. secretly backed Syrian opposition:
WASHINGTON | Mon Apr 18, 2011 10:54am EDT
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The State Department has secretly funded Syrian opposition groups, according to diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks, The Washington Post reported on Monday.
The cables show that the State Department has funneled as much as $6 million since 2006 to a group of Syrian exiles to operate a London-based satellite channel, Barada TV, and finance activities inside Syria, the Post said.

SYRIA: US-NATO Supported "Opposition" Commits Extensive War Crimes

Finally, it should be noted that there are many similarities between the Syrian rebels and the Libyan rebels. The Libyan rebels launched a media propaganda war against Gaddafi, must like how Al Jazeera has lied about the ongoing events in Syria. In addition to this, much like the Syrian rebels, the Libyan rebels also committed war crimes.

While there are those who may be pushing for intervention into Syria, they may want to rethink it the situation in light of this new information. The situation may end up much worse as the Libyan rebels were linked to Al Qaeda and the NTC is now going to enact Sharia law. We should not want the same fate for the people of Syria.
Quite different from what US government told us.

Syria 'Friends' Fuel Murder with Promises of Weapons for Rebels

by grtv

Syria's President says countries like the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are hindering peace in his country by supporting those he calls 'terrorists'.

Bashar al-Assad accused Washington of being partially responsible for the deaths of innocent civilians by partnering with the rebels. The Syrian army have started large-scale drills simulating defense against outside attacks.

Some opposition leaders previously appealed to the West for foreign intervention against the regime.

But as Maria Finoshina reports from Syria, many in the country are fearing for their lives if the rebel forces get what they want.
Al Qaeda is always there when US is in need.
