This week there has been a chemical ‘’attack’’ in Syria. And everybody is already blaming the Assad regime.
In no we are we defending the Assad regime, but everybody is already beating the war drums. And screaming for intervention. Can everybody just slow down for now and not rush into another trillion dollar war this time? Let use diplomacy this time. Let’s include the Russians also. Russia has more influence and leverage over Syria right now. We can start an international investigations into this chemical attack. Don’t most people agree this is a better way for the foreseeable future? We have to realize Assad is here to stay. America is tired of regime change and wars in the middle east. Donald Trump campaigned on this issue of regime change. Then candidate trump said (paraphrasing) we are protecting the borders of foreign countries, but leaving our own borders wide open. We are also dealing with hypocrisy here. The international community, left and neocons don’t care about the human rights violations. If so they would be up in arms against Iran, Saudi Arabia and China.
It’s obviously they want to get rid of Assad. Keep in mind that Syria's Central Bank is state-owned & controlled – In other words, it manages its national currency so that it serves the Syrian people. Syria has no IMF (International Monetary Fund) debt. This means that Syria’s leadership understands that the IMF – a public multilateral agency of member governments. Syria has banned genetically modified (GMO) seeds – Bashar Assad banned GMO’s in order “to preserve human health,” Syria has massive oil and gas reserves. Syria is also one of the last secular Muslim states in the Middle East. Look at some pictures of Assad his wife. She is not even wearing a hijab. Syria proudly maintains and protects its political and cultural national identity. There are a lot of motives for them to get rid of Syria’s nationalist leader Assad. But human rights violations is definitely not one of them.
