Syria: Creating A Wasteland And Calling It Peace

March 31, 2015: The UN is having no success in getting access to nearly five million refugees inside Syria. Over ten percent of these refugees are literally under siege by government forces because the civilians are considered pro-rebel. For the rest road access passes through government and rebel territory. Some 80 percent of the Syrian population has been reduced to poverty and many depend on food aid to survive. But so far this year the Assad government has refused over 90 percent of UN requests for access to areas where refugees are living. That means no UN supplies can get through. The rebels are more cooperative, largely because the Assads control territory that extended to the sea and allows allies Russia and Iran to ship in supplies.

    Creating a wasteland and calling it peace. What could be more islamic?

      Stop buying the propaganda because those at the top want a clash of civilizations and it is best to choose the path of nationalism rather than imperialism and globalism which the Conservative party and to a lesser extent the NDP and the Liberals want. We need independent foreign policy and sovereignty over our own nation.

        The only choice are minor parties and independents.

    Why waste money on an expensive nuclear device. Sit back and watch them destroy all their countries.

  • Islam makes a society dysfunctional.

    So what’s so unique about Syria?

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      The US funneled in weapons to the FSA and when the US, Britain and France couldn’t get that war with Syria then ISIS mysteriously appeared. It seems to me that the US creates enemies because its economy is dependent on war. Don’t forget how Al Qaeda started in Afghanistan back in the 80’s.

        You believe too much neocon nonsense when the West has launched about 9 to 15 wars since 9/11. That is imperialism on steroids. I don’t trust mainstream media, Rebel or anything in Canada other than networks like RT for peace and Press TV and the fact is every network whether they are silent or vocal they are for in essence the same agenda which is the war economy.

        • Billy Bob your view is too narrow. The ultimate imperialism on steroids is Islam.

          Look at all the non-Arab Muslim countries. They all had fully developed “indigenous” cultures before Islam arrived.

          Look specifically at greater India (which use to include Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh.) Before the arrival of Islam (about 1200) greater India was essentially a peaceful Hindu/Buddhist society. Now Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh are all Islamic hell holes where the Muslim population prays in Arabic and bows towards Mecca. That is imperialism on steroids.

          It is the same everywhere Islam goes.

          You state “the West has launched about 9 to 15 wars since 9/11.”

          Can you please name the 9 to 15 wars?
