She is very much an Anglophile Syrian, as Bashar himself is. Note Bashar chose to live and work in Britain. I have just watched part one. Governments need to kill it off to allow them to start one. With rare footage of Bashar and Asma, this episode takes us from the opening of their opera house in Damascus to the massacre of prisoners in Syria's biggest jail. No mention at all in episodes 1 and 2! By the way I have infinitely more trust in Bashar Assad than in Donald Trump, Benjamin Netanyahu, Hillary Clinton or Theresa May. What is everybody moaning about? And while you are at it, read how Kichener invented concentration camps and Amherst invented biological warfare.
The programme tells us repeatedly that it also applies to Bashar, but the evidence they give almost always points the other way. One of our themes on Christian Rethink is not only that truth is the first casualty of war, but that it needs to be killed or in Intensive Care before a war even begins. Needless to say such cynicism about Clinton cannot be discounted given our inability to trust the motivation of belligerent politicians during times of war typified by the Kuwaiti incubator débâcle not to mention many other false flags. Asma is beautiful, intelligent and energetic. As for Australian leaders I think most of them are ignorant about foreign relations and they are not staying in their job long enough to learn. So it is a mystery to me why the bad labels persist even amongst those otherwise critical of the western warmongers. Today, they are entrenched in a brutal war that has led to some of the most horrifying crimes of modern times.
But in Britain the idea of progressive taxation, with the richest paying most, and with wealth above a certain maximum limit suffering 100% taxation, is in tatters; simply non-functional. This is causing some to say that the War is over. Bashar al-Assad has been president of Syria for a decade, while his wife Asma is enjoying her role as first lady, pushing charity drives and encouraging schoolchildren to discuss democracy. Presented at the beginning of Episode 1 is the way staff in a London Hospital suddenly found out that one of their rather quiet Eye Surgeons was the son of the President of Syria. Opthalmology was a calling, being President was a duty. Episode three: The final episode gives the view from the presidential palace as the country descends into civil war, charting the moral lines crossed over the past seven years.
The stagnant minds that dominate at the moment stand yet on the shoulders of giants and all real advance is made by instrument builders and engineers. Told through rarely seen footage and testimony of those who knew them, worked with them and studied them, the series explores how the couple, who at first were seen as a modernising force, ended up running a regime accused of war crimes. The brutality this unleashes shocks the world. Without any evidence he was charged with deporting militant prisoners to fight Americans in Iraq. War is an abomination, whoever starts it, whoever is fighting in it. Today, they are entrenched in a brutal war that has led to some of the most horrifying crimes of modern times. The programme also completely ignores the fact that Assad knew this was a Muslim uprising from the start.
Events since have shown that Syria was indeed next on the list, along with Libya, which has already been trashed and balkanised. The issue of Jihadis in Syrian prisons could more truthfully have taken the programme on a different tack. I came away with the distinct impression that the aim of the programme — apart from to lie and factually mislead — was to manipulate a bridge between the secular, respected and humanitarian President and his wife that many of us see and the murdering, genocidal, evil butcher that we are told he really is. By David Carlson aka Candide Schmyles a nobody living in the North of Scotland. We were among the early settlers, not Brits but Hungarians.
Then a saviour emerges, turning the war back in his favour. Bashar Al-Assad the President of Syria was never meant to be in the position of leadership, never meant to be a mass murderer of around half a million of his people, never meant to sanction the use of barrel bombs, low-tech chlorine and high-tech Sarin chemical weapons against men, women and children, in the city of Idib, targeting hospitals — and then of course, deny it. We grew wheat, barley, oats, raised cattle and pork,. If Hafez was paranoid he had reason to be. Bashar al-Assad trained to be an eye doctor at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington and Asma was a British-born girl from a Syrian family with a career in investment banking.
Where did Rifaat get his millions from? Bashar must decide whether to concede to their demands for greater freedom or follow in his father Hafez's hard line steps. Only three significant areas of Syria now remain outside of Government control. Tired of being censored by our beloved, once-upon-a-time left-of-centre newspaper, in February 2015 we decided to create our own platform for airing our unacceptable opinions. To start with the ommision of how Hafez Assad rescued Syria from American and French colonial interference that by policy was designed to keep Syria a fractured state of warring tribes is as I expected a deafening silence. As the chaos of civil war rages, the so-called Islamic State emerges and it looks like Bashar is on the brink of losing the Assad dynasty's control of Syria. What unfolds shocks the world in its brutality.
Three-part series delving into the story of the Assad dynasty. Bashar had to ponder whether Syria would be next after Iraq, so was taking defensive action, assuming the allegation is true. A largely forgotten figure outside his own country, where his father Hafez was a conventional Middle-East dictator with a billion pound sea-front property in which to bring up his children. Yet with strained contrivance and meaningless anecdotes from western stooges he is portrayed as a sinister character full of deceit. Please do not think for a moment i am some luddite with a grudge, far from it, the sciences — cosmolgy, cybernetics and genetics especially, are my primary passion.
Right up to the present moment. Good point, and it was a near instantaneous 200 years before they were freed, and eventually allowed to vote, own land and just another 100 before they could play pro baseball with whites and ride in the same buses. Maybe that is what it is! Those of us who are past our youth have mostly noticed that people do not change; their situation may do so, but rarely the basic personality. They were given training, salaries, uniforms, free housing, free food, including fresh meat 2X a week, and allotted an acre of land to grow their own staples and keep goats. When Donald Trump says that Khashoggi may have been murdered by a random violent group who just happened to stroll into the Saudi Embassy we should understand that is blatant bullshit to protect the sales of weapons at any cost. As we said, truth is the first casualty of war. Bashar must decide whether to concede to their demands for greater freedom or follow in his father Hafez's hard line steps.
