People who are interested in finding out more detail about the Free Syrian Army should check out various presentations by Webster Tarpley who has been
tracking the infiltration of foreign "Al Qaeda style" criminals into Syria since the trouble there started.
There is no country in the Middle East that can be governed along the lines of a Western democracy, none, not even Israel, although Israel comes
closest to what we in the West would recognize as a democracy. Assad, as "strongmen" go is nowhere near the outer limit of what is acceptable. Yes he
has used the security services to crackdown on dissenters, but a Middle Eastern dissenter is not like an Occupy Wall Street protester. Given an inch a
Middle Eastern dissenter will kill you and your whole community, as one can see from the dissenter chants shown in the video.
Things are different in those countries in the Middle East. It is not like here and the people cannot be governed like in the West, at this time in
Eventually things will be different, but what the West, NATO, the US doesn't like, is not the rougher style of democracy practiced in Syria, but
rather Syria's independent foreign policy and its opposition to the state of Israel.
Any state in the Middle East that has refused to accept US hegemony is being destroyed. America wants to be master in someone else's house and in the
case of Syria is using gangs of murderers to throw the legitimate masters out.
Of course there are legitimate dissenters in Syria. The interviewee in the OP's video was one of them, but they are not the majority in the society.
One day they might be, but the West is forcing the issue in Syria with another "hot house" revolution led by imported fake revolutionaries.
The interesting thing about the interviewee in the video is that, despite being a dissenter, he is intelligent enough to realize what is going on and
to refuse to go along with it. He has moral and ethical integrity himself. If you listen to some of the discussions Webster Tarpley has gotten into on
Press TV and elsewhere you will see him being confronted by the "true believers" in the "Arab Spring" who cannot see the forest for the trees.
These people are typical Middle Eastern types, infatuated with themselves and operating to their own usually narrowly focused agenda, with no sense of
proportion and no sense of where they are in the big picture.
Thanks to the OP for posting the video. We have heard from "Syrian Girl" (Mimi al-Lahan) and other commentators trying to tell the truth about what is
happening in Syria, but here in the Orwellian world of the Western Media, the voices trying to reach us are very faint.
