He says in interview Trump is a puppet of the big corporations, in particular the military industrial complex, which uses wars for profit. He says this has been going on for decades with many presidents. He says the one who pulls the strings is the deep regime. I disagree somewhat. Trump's advisor is his son in law Jared Kushner who is buddy buddy with Netanyahu who is from the right wing Likud party who hates Syria and who wants Syria in perpetual war.

Sorry but this guy has the expertise to spot a puppet. Remember he grew up watching his Fathers strings being pulled by the CIA and vowed to cut those cords when he took power.

He knows all about the politics of influence and how very real it is. Where some see conspiracy he sees the business of politics.

Hafez Assad was put into power by the USSR. Baathism was backed by the USSR. Baathism is socialism. In Syria housing is free, healthcare is free, education is free. They get solar power for free. In the US it costs money to build solar power. In Syria it's all done for free.

Because of socialism, Syria's population increased from a few million in 1960 to 20 million only a few decades later. In the US it costs too much money to have children so almost all the population growth comes from Mexico immigration.

Syria and Assad are, and always have been, Russia's property, not America's.

Syria is a threat to Saudi Arabia because in Syria it is socialist and women have rights. In Saudi Arabia women have no rights. So if Syria is successful then people in Saudi Arabia will demand republic like in Syria. So Saudi Arabia pays CIA to supply arms to mercenaries to wreck Syria.

Well, I agree with Assad. I think Trump is controlled very closely by the MIC brass. Everything that has happened since he was elected indicates this. Actually all the presidents in my lifetime have been puppets to some extent, if not mostly. Obama turned out to be a CIA puppet. Trump is an MIC guy. Thats kinda how our modern republic works.

Being president gets you a spot at the table, but in the end you do what your masters say on the issues that they care about.

Syria is Shia, Saudi Arabia is Sunni. That is all either has ever needed to hate the other and plot for their demise. "My enemies enemy" etc...

Saudi Arabia is closely allied with Israel. For the monarchy of Saudi Arabia, holding onto power is their priority. The Arab republics are their threat. The day the people of Saudi Arabia demand republic is the day their rule is over.

What makes you think the rulers over there give a crap about what the people think ?

We are always being schooled about how backward in their belief systems these arabs are, yet the care for their people all at the same time.

American revolution overthrew the king's rule in America. Britain is no longer an absolute monarchy as in Saudi Arabia. The ME is the final bastion of absolute monarchy. In Europe and Japan there is no more absolute monarchy. That's why ME monarchies are so paranoid. They are terrified their time will soon come.

On a side note, absolute monarchy violates Sharia law, under which the ruler must be elected rather than being hereditary.

Saudi Arabia is less an ally of Israel and more consigned to letting them "exist" because their shared "parent" ally America wants it.

You are right that the Saud royal family focused on staying in power. However, so is every other monarchy and dictatorship on the planet. Assad included.

(Most democratic one's too, come to think of it)

Exactly. Constitutional Monarchies (ie: UK, Japan, Denmark) are democratic with the monarch a figurehead with no real power. Without sending anyone off the deep-end, the Queen is more Mascot than Ruler...

In the ME just about every country is absolute monarchies like Qatar and Saudi Arabia and Jordan and UAE and dictator presidents like Egypt and Turkey and Syria or theocracies like Iraq and Iran. Lebanon and Israel are the only exceptions.

Agreed. Egypt might be a technical exception. Technical because it is effectively a military dictatorship right now following their ever-so-brief flirtation with democracy that they didn't really like...to put it mildly. (and that it is African.) But I am nitpicking.

Your point stands.

Egypt is technically a ME country. Also I forgot to mention Yemen is also dictator president.

The US wants to run a gas pipeline through Syria to sell gas to Europe.
The US want Assad out so they can cut Russian gas royalties
This is about money not religion

Yes. All thanks to Oliver Cromwell. Democracy is still an illusion though.

Why do I feel that Trump made him say that?

Seriously, they are both caught in a whirlpool of world affairs about which they can do nothing as they plunge, spinning, to their deaths, blaming each other for their predicament.

What does it profit a man to gain the world and loose their soul?

Well, Assad is a brutal dictator. He's got rather a lot of blood on his hands. At the moment Assad is fully beholden to Putin, not just in the practical military support (the flattening of Aleppo, for example), but the fact Russia has prevented any solution to the crisis by frustrating progress at the UN.

As to Trump being a puppet. If anything has been shown to be true over the last few months it is that Trump is his own master.

Egypt is part of the Middle East by most conventional definitions. Countries to the west of Egypt are in North Africa. Turkey is also conventionally considered to be part of the Middle East.

With Turkey sliding towards autocracy, the only democracy in the ME is Israel.
