As Syria, Russia and Iran continue to blame the West for false news reporting and arming the opposition, what's really going on?

“In the news we presented, we portrayed all members of the opposition as traitors and turned martyrs into terrorists who were affiliated to gangs that work for foreign powers.”

Malathi added that Syrian TV broadcast footage of pro-regime celebrations as they sang in support of the president while families of martyrs were burying their dead and receiving condolences.

“Any sane person with even a tiny bit of humanity would never accept that.”

According to Malathi, only 10% of Syria's state media personnel are buying into the regime's propaganda.

So, what else does Malathi have to say about the regime?

Malathi, who accompanied the Syrian president and prime minister on several trips outside the country, said he was particularly shocked at the way the regime handled the tragedy of the city of Deraa, where the protests started.

“Instead of holding officials accountable and apologizing to residents of the city, the regime decided to start a collective punishment plan and the same was repeated later in Banias and other cities.”

Malathi goes on to describe why he sees the fall of the Syrian regime as imminent due to the Free Syrian Army capturing more and more places while the economy has totally collapsed as well.

Every so often you get a jewel.

Walters Cronkite: "The war in Vietnam is unwinnable"

Of course this will be considered Propaganda.
Cue the Star Wars Imperial March followed by anti-West rhetoric....

Here's something else I found interesting this morning.

As Russian Foreign Minister Lasrov continues to say that Syria needs to work out it's problems through the Arab League and that Assad has agreed to work with them, one sentence in this article didn't make sense.

"Russia says all parties in Syria must cease fire before deployment of peacekeepers"

The Russian (Lasrov) said his country was examining an Arab League proposal for the deployment of a joint Arab-U.N. peacekeeping mission in Syria presented on Sunday in Cairo.

Here's the sentence that didn't make sense based on Lasrov's continued statements of cooperation by the Syrian regime.

The move was swiftly denounced by Syrian regime, according to reports from the state television.

Yep, the Syrian regime is going to make Russia look like a bunch of fools.

"Syria rejects Arab League call for peacekeeping mission"

Syria has flatly rejected a call by the Arab League to deploy peacekeepers to end the country's escalating conflict, while Britain has said no western troops could be involved in such a mission.

The official Syrian Sana news agency, quoted an official source in Damascus as saying that Sunday's Arab League proposal constituted "flagrant interference" in Syria's internal affairs and was in breach of the league's own charter.

President Bashar al-Assad's government blames the unprecedented crisis on an Arab-western conspiracy in support of "armed terrorist groups".

As I've stated earlier in a related thread.

Does anybody honestly think Assad would agree to UN peacekeepers under ANY conditions?
I wouldn't hold my breath. If he were to allow UN troops into his country then that would be for him admitting he has lost some control. FAT chance of that. So, I highly doubt that UN peacekeepers are a realistic option [Unfortunately more people will die either way]

I have no doubts that the West is in there stirring the pot [That goes without saying] but, [and I always get heat for this one] there are also a lot of Syrians pissed off at their Government with legitimate gripes as well [No Country is perfect] Then on the flip side, there are a large percentage of the Syrian population who do in fact support Assad.

This makes for a bloodbath

The truth is, Assad can't afford to have outsiders come in and witness what's really going on right now, since the Syrian regime has stepped up the violence.

Not to mention the number of Sunni terrorist organizations that are coming over in droves with weapons (Al Qaeda and Iraqi Jihadists). Assad will only say that they are "foreign gangs", but lead you to believe that they're sent over there by the West.

The West doesn't even need to get involved in this conflict if they want Assad out. The Sunnis are going to outnumber the Shia regime in no time by their own determination. The only involvement by the West will be to try and minimize the bloodshed between all the jihadists.

All we have to do is look inside Iraq to see what's going on in Syria or vice versa...

Iraq: Fighting between Sunnis and Shiites

Iraq: Al-Maliki tries to extend personal and Shiite power (January 21, 2012)

Al-Maliki is the leader of the Shiite bloc in the Iraqi government. At least until recently, the Sunnite Iraqiya bloc was the counterpart in the government. While the Sunnis had the political power in the Iraqi government under the former “administration” of Saddam Hussein, the Shiites have the final say at the moment – more and more.

This is a reversal of what could have been observed under Saddam. The Sunni minority people had to leave the field for the Shiite majority. This was not foreseen in the “plan for Iraq”. In order to overcome the possible religious differences, they agreed that Shias and Sunnis share the power in the Iraqi government even before the elections and the government formation.


To that extent, a lot more Iraqi politicians have to be accused with such allegations. Even al-Maliki should be accused. The level of violence was widespread in Iraq and it seems currently, that the level of violence again spreads even further.

So while the violence in the streets escalates and the Iraq seems to slide into civil war, al-Maliki has vehemently maintained his power and influence and is still trying to go further, without considering the consequences for a lot of people in “his” country.
