The media taking sides on matters? You don't say!

What no media source is reporting is that this (like most wars of recent past) is all about oil. A U.S. controlled pipeline running straight from Syria to Europe would bankrupt Putin.

Isn't the ongoing embargo supposed to bankrupt Russia already ?

More Russia is the worlds savior on ATS. Its really getting old

Russia is Assads savior


and Assad is democratically chosen by the majority of Syria as their leader. There were observers of 30 nations present during the proces, if they had rigged the elections we would have known. Refugees in other countries could also vote at embassies like the million+ syrians in Lebanon. So Russia is the savior of the Syrian people yes, and i think they are very gratefull. (turnout rate 73,42%) However... Belgium, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, UAE and the United States did not allow the elections to be held in the Syrian embassy. Please note that the majority of these nations is illegaly active in Syria.

Guess what, after massive protests Assad gave reform! ''The new Syrian constitution of 2012 In a new article 88, it introduced presidential elections and limited the term of office for the president to seven years with a maximum of one re-election.''
Which means this will be Assads last term. Still these 'rebels' supported by a minority of syrian people continue to fight the elected goverment for ''democracy''. And the BBC loves every last one of them.

HOWEVER

Right at the end of the news article the reporter straight faced says 'that if the rebels don't get reinforcements and more ammunition soon, they will lose this fight'

That, in my opinion equates to crimes against humanity. He has just called for more Jihadists to join the fight and cause more death and destruction.


I would recommend you educate yourself a little better on the Syrian conflict.

You seem to be amalgamating ISIS with the local Syrian Rebel forces.

And your logic that the choice is either between Jihadists or Putin seems similarly flawed.

Flashback 2011


Pro-democracy protests erupted in March 2011 in the southern city of Deraa after the arrest and torture of some teenagers who painted revolutionary slogans on a school wall. After security forces opened fire on demonstrators, killing several, more took to the streets.

The unrest triggered nationwide protests demanding President Assad's resignation. The government's use of force to crush the dissent merely hardened the protesters' resolve. By July 2011, hundreds of thousands were taking to the streets across the country.

Opposition supporters eventually began to take up arms, first to defend themselves and later to expel security forces from their local areas.


This is the government you are cheering for...



Violence escalated and the country descended into civil war as rebel brigades were formed to battle government forces for control of cities, towns and the countryside. Fighting reached the capital Damascus and second city of Aleppo in 2012.


ISIS was established in April 2013 and declared it's Caliphate in Syria in 2014

PUT ANOTHER WAY...Your OP seems to not recognize what began the Syrian Crisis, nor distinguish between the Free Syrian Army and ISIS and omits the years 2011-2014?

Assad held power via a 48 year declared "State of Emergency" in Syria...

And no...holding elections in a war zone doesn't count..

en.wikipedia.org...-39

And the folks that fabricated the results were lacking in math...because when the precise numbers they reported were run, they resulted in "half a person" voting.

www.washingtonpost.com...

You don't need to be a a UN Monitor to recognize that .7 of a person cannot vote.

Syria barely has oil.


Allowing a Russian pipeline through Syria is what the Russian's want with Syria.

So that means it was one out of how many reporting that day...during times like that being live I would expect one to get it wrong.

If you had more than one you might have something.

Bombing hopsitals is dirty warfare at its worst. I don't like it but the tactical reason behind it is to stop the rebels from getting medical treatment.

And yes it is inhumane because it also stops the civilians from getting treatment too.

However

Even Doctors without borders refuse to operate behind rebel lines now. And it is not because of the hospital bombings. These brave and neutral volunteers are usually found on both sides of any conflict to help the wounded as a humanitarian effort. But the rebels (presumably ISIS) kidnapped several of their volunteers they pulled out.

Yep these rebels are such pigs that they abducted volunteers who come and risk their lives in a warzone to help everyone so that they could have them to themselves

Crime against Humanity?

LOL any reason people ignore the other facts on the ground? I posted this in another thread dealing with the same issue -


Yup.. Russia is doing all they can to protect Assad while lining up Syrian citizens against a wall for Assad to shoot.



Russia and China have from day one sought to protect Syria's sovereignty. Syria, like any other nation has the right to self determination without outside interference. Assad got it wrong and things spiralled out of control, yes and he has even admitted he made mistakes at the start.

What's more, where are the UN in Sudan, North Korea and Zimbabwe? These countries get up to worse things almost every day, but because they have nothing that the USA wants, a blind eye gets turned to the goings on in those godforsaken hell holes.

And why does the UN not condemn the police brutality in the USA? The amount of shootings of unarmed and usually black men there is beyond unacceptable.

As far as I am concerned, the UN is another US run farce that pandas to it's personal agendas and Russia and China know this and this is why they often veto resolutions.

Don't be ridiculous. They don't want to "allow a Russian pipeline though Syria".

They want SYRIA...the whole package. That is what Putin is fighting for. Sure Bashar al-Assad can stay on as a puppet, but Syria belongs to Putin now.
