Tony Cartalucci – World Must Unite Against US-Saudi-Israeli Proxy War in Syria
* US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel have conspired to destroy Syria by way of arming sectarian extremists since 2007.

A middle-aged man shouted in English: ”You are not welcome. You are starving us. You are stopping us living here. You should report this. It is the sanctions. Go home.”
It was a shock, in a country whose hospitality to foreign strangers is renowned. He would not shake hands. It was not the fighting that angered this businessman, nor the British government’s apparent wish to arm the rebels, but the EU sanctions that are preventing the transfer of money.

Bashar al-Assad has recently been demonized by the mainstream and so-called alternative media who claim that he is a brutal dictator. Actually Bashar is a reformer who has done much to further the causes of democracy and freedom. It is the opposition and their foreign supporters who represent the most repressive elements of the former ruling party in Syria.
