Who has for years called for the resignation of Assad? With what legitimation? As Assad, as expected, did not stepped down because he was elected. certain French politicians begun to supply "moderate" rebels with thousands of tons of weapons*!
It was from the very beginning a propaganda war. Imagine what would be happened if in Europe or the USA a group of "moderate" opposition freaks would take up guns and shoot at random at police officers. These people would be shot like rabbits in the street, our governments would never allow an opposition to take up arms. Basta!
How delusional people like Alain Juppe, Hillary Clinton and R. Erdogan have been can only be explained with their dependency on financial interests of certain groups in their home countries, precisely energy- and arms-industries. They completely under-estimated their view of Assad, knowing he will not give in and does not want to be killed like Gadaffi and Saddam. Assad made this very clear in an Interview he had given the Wallstreet-Journal in early 2011, so before the violent demonstration in Homes begun.
It was not only France, but also Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United States that fuelled the conflict with their arms supplies. To make matters worse these faked "moderate" terrorists, or what the mass media like to describe as "moderate opposition" was covered up by reports of media, like BBC, France24, CeapNewsNetwork - CNN, etc. They all used unaudited Facebook and Twitter postings as "sources", adding massively to the distortion of reality. If I ever would have done such reporting all editors would have fired me for such work.
No, my dear colleagues, you really violated the very basics of journalistic values and ethics! You knowingly lied just to enrich yourself or simply not to get fired if you don't write what you are ask for to do. There is no excuse! You lied about the gas attacks. You lied about IS. You lied to yourself!!! Now you can't be trusted any more, because you know the saying: "A liar always lies".
The results of this complicity of lying of media, think-tanks and political responsible follows of course a clear logic: First we saw a refugee avalanche. There was cheering, hyping and lying and a immature "welcome-culture" in Germany. Look at Sweden’s reaction today...,refugees for internal reasons.... The worse of all was the deliberate ignorance by dumping all security controls. We will never know if this was part of a plan. So, surprise, surprise it was only a matter of time, when the first bombs of Religion will explode in Europe.
The Russian bombs must have made clear to these clumsy Salafists that their days are numbered in Syria. So, what is so strange that they simply come to us to demand their pay? They can not visit their brothers in Saudi-Arabia. No they haven't been invited by their sponsors... These medieval sheikdoms with their confused interpretation of the Koran
are governed either by selfish or senile tribal leaders. They do not have mercy for refugees.
Also, to make this clear here: I don't think it was a false flag attack like the Bombing of the train-station in Bologna, better known as Gladio's adventure or Bologna massacre. Reality is often much easier than conspiracy theories: Religious facists are simple minded. They don't fear dead. They have nothing to loose. They just invite themselves, because most NATO members were so kind to give them all these Peng-Peng-toys. These toys make these murderer believing they are "powerful".
NATO Strategists surely have had this marvellous idea that all these little "bad boy's" will nicely go back to Chechnya, Tajikistan and the other CIS countries after they had finished their job in Syria. Once back home in the CIS they then could begin to cut some people's heads off. This strategies exist! They are not a fantasy.
Our Think-Tank-Pundits and mainstream journalists would describe them again as "Freedom-Fighter-Terrorists"; as "our bad guys" so to say. Well, if I would be Putin, I also would have bombed the hell out of these IS-"Freedom-Fighter-Terrorists" while they are in Syria and not wait till they make trouble in my kingdom...
Everyone knew this. So, it is a complicity of silence and resignation. Resignation before an unelected EU government which is now introducing border controls. Ironically this border controls will not effect the "Defence" industry to do its shabby cross-border business with those sponsors of Islam-fascism (Salafi / Wahhabi) our vassals at the Gulf. On top on the border controls we even will get this monster called TTIP.
Thus, a very clear answer the question whether we can protect ourselves against terrorism is very clear: NO, we can not protect ourselves from people we were nursing as our "bad boys" We were arming Taliban and IS and then we bombed them, so they bomb us. It is completely logic that we then curtail our liberties and limit our freedom of movements. The next step, before even this famous article 5 of the NATO convention comes into place, the solidarity inside our societies will crumble faster then any Islam bomber can archive this goal. With all stupidity taking place during the past years it would not surprise me if our wise political responsible are going to use NATO against IS. Ironically ISIS was born by by NATO itself to oust Assad.
Fact is, we can't defend ourselves against stupidity! Now the baby was biting the tit’s of its foster mother. Too bad...Thank you Mrs Merkel, thank you M Hollande for being politically so responsible...
