The situation in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan
February 13, 2016Posted by on
The situation in Syria is horrible. The West is responsible for the situation in the Middle East. It is the West (especially USA and UK) who supported brutal dictators like Saddam Hussein and Bashar al-Assad. They also supported the dictator of Egypt – Hosni Mubarak and they support the current dictator of the country.
The Western governments refuse to attack ISIS, although spending a lot of taxpayer money, giving fat contracts to companies producing weapons, and claiming they attack ISIS. In reality, they only attacked once the ISIS trucks transporting oil, three days after the November 2015 Paris terrorist attacks. ISIS can keep doing their business without being bothered too much by the West.
At very least, the West, together with its allies – Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, should break a small part from Northern Syria and allow the refugees to come there, supplying them food and shelter. They have more than enough power to do that and to protect such a small area.
By the contrary, the Western governments are very happy with the disaster taking place in Syria, and the Western media spreads misinformation, claiming that the Arabs always enjoyed fighting and killing each others. Even the US president Barack Obama supports such miserable claims.
In Iraq, the USA replaced Saddam with a Saddam like president – Nouri al-Maliki. The USA supports an ultra-corrupt government in Iraq, but also in Afghanistan. While filling their pockets and bank accounts with billions of US dollars, the people of those corrupt governments are making the life of their people a living hell. All that with the support from the West. The West is doing nothing to pressure the governments in Iraq or Afghanistan to reduce corruption.
I live in Spain and that makes me a Westerner. I am deeply ashamed to be part of all this horrible situation. So my message for the people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan is that I am ashamed to be part of this, I am ashamed that, with my passivity, I am supporting the Western governments to devastate their countries. But I will try my best to change that, calling the other Westerners to stop supporting their governments and to pressure their governments to help Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, instead of devastating them.
- The West was buying oil from the brutal dictator Bashar al-Assad, and it is still buying oil from him, indirectly. (Assad sells his oil to Russia, and Europe and USA are buying oil from Russia)
- Rifaat al-Assad, the uncle of Bashar al-Assad is the mass murderer who killed some 25,000 innocent people in Syria, and he lives like a king in Spain and France, since 1992. He got with him 200 of his top assasins. He is the “king of Marbella”.
- The West is doing nothing to cut the supply lines of ISIS. This organization is not capable to produce much things, and they buy pretty much everything they need. They even buy cars manufactured in the West! Those supply routes can be tracked, if only the CIA would bother to do it. At very least, the West can bomb the roads and the trucks that are used to transport the goods to and from the ISIS-controlled territories.
