The blood of Syrians is on the hands of Americans, Canadians, Europeans and Saudis - are you prepared for war with Russia? Has enough blood not been spent?

My ancestors were native to Mount Lebanon. The blood that runs in my veins is Lebanese which is mainly of the Canaanites and Phoenicians of the ancient world.  My grandparents all came from Maronite villages on Mount Lebanon. Their language evolved from the ancients to Aramaic and then to Arabic. The Syrian people are cousins, they spoke the same language, share the same history and underwent the same arabisation. Yet, for the most part, Christians and Muslims in Syria lived peacefully, provided they were left alone.

The Ottomans dominated for centuries until after the collapse following the Great War in 1917. Sykes-Picot and the Balfour Declaration carved up the Middle East creating many of the problems at hand today.

The blood on the hands of our western leaders is immense. European and American and we in Canada will have much to account for. Our ancestors drew lines and created artificial borders for oil and politics. We continue down that same destructive path.

Basher Assad may not be our idea of a liberal democrat. Frankly, the last time I looked, which of our western liberal democratic leaders do we really think serves the interests of the people to say nothing about the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ? 

Assad is a cultured and educated man who cares deeply about his people. He has attempted to build a nation-state for all. He has refused to bow to America and Europe and the degenerate House of Saud and what has it gotten the people?

The propoganda against this man and his wife is immense. 

I am not justifying military means on one's people, but; who created this problem that a government was forced to take extreme action to keep its nation united? Who undermined the legitimate government? 

The United States of America went to civil war, a brutal civil war that cost more American lives than any other in history. The Confederate States of America were aided by foreign powers. It even had a friend in the Pope!

Americans went to war and killed its own citizens to prevent a disunion of the nation. What hypocrites these American leaders are!

Is this man a monster?

Is this a man hated by his people?

Americans, Canadians, Europeans! There is a war on for your mind!

The situation in Syria is a disgrace and the blood is on our nations in the West. There is one country that is operating legally in Syria and that is its long-time ally, Russia. 

Russia is not my enemy!

Assad is the legitimate President. It is not up to America to determine that he is not. George Bush and then Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, Cameron his predecessors, Harper in Canada have destroyed these countries, killed hundreds of thousands, if not millions in the process. Now, we the people are expected to take in the refugees who have little to contribute and may in themselves, contain the seeds of revenge in our own streets for the murderous folly of our governments.

Christians were not dying under Assad. Syrians were not in civil war until foreign operatives and mercenaries funded  by the Saudis, Europeans and North Americans destabilised the nation.

We will be chastised and very soon. Now, we are in moving closer to a showdown with Russia, over Syria. Why is your media not reporting on this?

Failure to Accept Russia’s Position in Syria Inching US Closer to War
In recent weeks, officials of Western governments have engaged in a dramatic escalation of rhetoric condemning the Syrian and Russian governments for alleged war crimes that have occurred since the collapse of a UN-backed ceasefire in late September.
The escalating charges aimed at Russia and Syria, reinforced by well-orchestrated media campaigns propagating official talking points, are familiar in the sense that such attempts to mould public opinion have traditionally been a precursor to Western military interventions.
Western and Gulf states have been unequivocal about their intention to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, presumably to replace it with a client regime that would maintain an adversarial relationship with Russia, Iran and various political forces associated with Shia Islam.
On the ground, the Syrian military, supported by Russian, Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah allies are on the path to military victory over the rebel-held east of Aleppo, which would mark the restoration of government control in all of Syria’s largest population centres.
Insurgents that have been armed and supported by the United States are now besieged in eastern Aleppo fighting Syrian government forces in coordination with jihadist militants, including the al-Nusra Front, the former Syrian wing of al Qaeda that Washington itself classifies as a terrorist organisation.
Some 270 thousand civilians are besieged alongside the militants controlling the area. Though the ongoing offensive has undoubtedly put the civilian population of the area at risk, larger questions about the fighting in Aleppo have hardly been raised by Western media.
The dominant narrative about Aleppo asserts claims that Syria and Russia are ‘deliberately bombing schools and hospitals to kill civilians’ or maintaining a siege to ‘break the will of the population’.
Almost no serious questions are asked of the rebel leadership in control of eastern Aleppo. The insurgents’ routine shelling of government-held western Aleppo – where the vast majority of the population, reportedly 1.5 million, reside – is hardly reported.
It must be recognised that the primary armed opposition fighting in eastern Aleppo and elsewhere are jihadist insurgents who have either superficially distanced themselves from the al-Qaeda brand or openly associate with it. More so, it is common knowledge that these groups have committed beheadings and heinous rights abuses.
Given the ferocity of Russian and Syrian airstrikes, why haven’t more civilians attempted to leave eastern Aleppo? UN Syria Envoy Staffan de Mistura claimed that Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, the rebranded version of al-Qaeda’s Syria affiliate, is holding ‘hostage’ the civilian population of east Aleppo.
From a humanitarian perspective, it is pertinent to question the effectiveness of the forceful approach taken by the Syrian and Russian militaries. There is a precedent for a non-violent solution to the situation, advocated by De Mistura himself.
In August 2016, a deal between government forces and militants ended the four-year siege of the Damascus suburb of Daraya. Civilians were evacuated and militants were bused to rebel-held areas in northern Syria without surrendering their weapons. This took place with the full cooperation of government forces.
De Mistura has offered to personally accompany the jihadist fighters out of eastern Aleppo, while other (allegedly ‘moderate’) insurgents and civilians remain under conditions of a ceasefire. The botched September 2016 ceasefire also sought this outcome, a key condition being that US-backed rebels divorce themselves from jihadist al-Nusra fighters.
It is clear that expelling these jihadist forces is the prerequisite for quelling the fighting in Aleppo, but there is political resistance to this outcome from Western and Gulf states because it would imply the surrender of anti-Assad groups and the impotence of their regime change objectives.
Moreover, as Syria’s largest city, Aleppo represents a major strategic prize. If captured, the foreign-backed opposition could establish an alternative Syrian government, which Western and Gulf states would then treat as the sole legitimate government.
The battle for Aleppo has been characterised as an ‘existential crisis’ for the mainstream anti-Assad forces. Should the Syrian government retake eastern Aleppo, it would deal a devastating blow to regime change efforts, but it would not mean a decisive end to the war. Kurdish forces have maintained their hold over parts of Syria, while the Islamic State continues to hold much territory.
That being said, the United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and others have invested enormous political capital to regime change efforts in Syria. Washington is determined to avoid a costly and humiliating defeat in Aleppo and is currently reviewing measures to shore up its proxies.
Among the options under consideration is the establishment of a no-fly-zone and safe zones, staging attacks against the Syrian air force and arming the Syrian rebels with additional weaponry. Should the US attempt of these options, it would directly violate international law.
The United States is not technically at war with the Syria, nor is there a UN resolution authorising American forces to operate inside Syria’s borders. Establishing a no-fly zone over Syrian airspace, safe zones within Syrian territory, or US military attacks on the Syrian air force and its bases would directly constitute an act of war against Damascus – and by extension, Moscow.
The Washington Post reports:
‘There’s an increased mood in support of kinetic actions against the regime,’ one senior administration official said. ‘The CIA and the Joint Staff have said that the fall of Aleppo would undermine America’s counterterrorism goals in Syria.’’
“One proposed way to get around the White House’s long-standing objection to striking the Assad regime without a U.N. Security Council resolution would be to carry out the strikes covertly and without public acknowledgement, the official said.”
It is deeply alarming and baffling that the US leadership has here equated the fall of the jihadist-occupied Aleppo as harmful to counterterrorism objectives. Should moral outrage be directed at any side, it should not be toward the Syrian and Russian governments, who are attempting to restore legal order over Syrian territory, albeit by controversial means.
Rather, it is the United States and its European and Gulf allies that have forged an alliance with terrorist organisations in an attempt to destroy an independent-minded secular nationalist government promoting a pluralistic and inclusive form of Islam that should most beget public condemnation.
This would certainly be the case if the Western public at large ever truly absorbed the gravity of what their governments have done in Syria. It is unlikely that President Obama would concede to a major military escalation during his final months in office, though the possibility remains.
Hillary Clinton, who will presumably become the next US president, publically supports the establishment of a no-fly zone in Syria and has openly stated her number one objective in Syria is the removal of Bashar al-Assad’s government.
Russia has begun to deploy advanced anti-missile and anti-aircraft systems in Syria. Trust between Russia and the United States has entirely eroded. Russia is holding the cards in Syria and it is difficult to imagine how open conflict can be avoided should the US pursue an escalation. The seriousness of this moment should not be understated.

It all goes back to consecutive Popes & Hierarchies obstinate refusal to comply with Our Blessed Lady's request to consecrate Russia (as per Her instruction) to Her Immaculate Heart. The ideology of Marxist/Masonic/Modernism which has infested the Vatican since VII has destroyed any hope of this being done. It will take Divine intervention to remove PF or frighten him & his cronies enough into dong it. Mass murder of innocent people (or the unborn) doesn't seem to resonate with these prelates. They appear utterly devoid of any belief in God - certainly not a Catholic God, or Hell or therefore sin.

Our media want us to believe that presidents Assad and Putin are monsters. Haven't Podesta's emails to Clinton revealed that they engaged in a conspiracy (their own choice of word) to create an ignorant and complaint populace?
General Wesley Clark talked about the decision to go to war only days after 9/11 - 7 countries in 5 years, starting in Irag, on to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran.

President Putin interfered with the plan, which the Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama did not foresee. But he really really really wants to be a good boy and deliver Syria to his corporate masters. Since the Bushes are now openly supporting their extension - the poor degenerate Clintons, in the completion of the NWO plan, there is little excuse for those members of the public, who refuse to see the reality you have described.

Mr. Bowie, our apologies for the stupidity of our American government. But you must understand, we are not told about Syria, and even were we told, we as Americans understand only too well that we are not operating under "old rules" in America, where the political leaders were beholden to Americans and concerned themselves with what we thought. President Barack Obama has shattered that as a historical reality in these 50 states. In eight years he has given an awesome tutorial in how to do whatever the hell you want and completely ignore the will of many of the people. You know, kind of like the pope does now. Add to that the fact that the entire media is in the pocket of this diabolical Marxist, and there you have it. If Russia, or Syria, or some other Middle Eastern nation, or any other nation wants to hold America responsible, then it should know the people live under a regime. This was not as true twenty years ago, a hundred years ago, two hundred years ago, but it is true now. We have virtually no power over our own government. It has grown far too big, too tyrannical, too self-interested, to give much thought to what we, the little people, think or don't think. In short, we can do almost nothing about this terrible situation, any more than we can apparently stop thousands of immigrants from flooding our borders and getting government payments, that actually EXCEED what our senior citizens get each month, senior citizens whose families have often fought in wars to help other nation's people and who paid greatly with suffering or their lives, generation after generation, since our nation began. There is something evil about that, but like most things, Americans are almost powerless to do anything about it and a zillion other woes we have.
Election day is coming up for us. Tragically, about half of Catholics will vote for the woman who is diametrically opposed to traditional Catholic teaching, and who has recently stated that "religious beliefs must be changed", a not very veiled threat against religious liberty. Yet she'll still get Catholic votes. We're confused and right when we need her most, our church is profoundly confused and encouraging madness.
God help the good people of Syria, and God help America and all the other people who suffer under regimes they can do nothing about at this point except vote and pray.

I just want to say as well, the photo of the little Syrian boy sitting in the chair, that was making the Internet rounds a few weeks ago, is almost more than I can personally take. What I wouldn't give to scoop up that innocent baby, and try to comfort and soothe him. That anyone in this world would do anything to hurt a child, it's enough to drive someone crazy. But children always pay the biggest price for the evil doings of we adults. This world has gone crazy, and more children are going to suffer.

The United Nations who stand by while countless thousands of innocent men,women ,and children are killed and maimed are a disgrace ,mind you they are very busy finding the solution to poverty ,hunger and suffering .Their solution is Death by abortion and Euthanasia. America once stood for Freedom and democracy ,yet behind the scenes they have overthrown democratically elected leaders and replaced them with dictators,this went on for decades in Latin America ,its now taken place in the Middle East and they are openly calling it regime change,they are not alone ,they have plenty of allies.It used to be a crime under international law to target the leader of a crountry.There is no justice in this world for victims of war crimes and torture ,but there is a higher Court and Judge and He will dispence justice for every drop of blood shed by the innocent victims of war mongers,and His justice will be terrifing,and Eternal.

Damascus may well be the place where the lies of modernism and the evil masonic empire are finally exposed. We've been living a demonic nightmare for the past century. Time for the Queen of Heaven to crush its head and end its dominion.

I wouldn't say Assad is broadly loved by his people. Obama certainly instigated this civil war, but there have been previous uprisings against the Alawite ruling minority for decades. Assad definitely has his supporters - Alawites, Christians (for not persecuting them and including many in influential positions) - but the Assad clan has long had many enemies in Syria. I don't know if more than 50% wanted him gone, if that matters, but a significant minority has for a long, long time.

Having said that, from the standpoint of the safety of Christians in Syrian and the maintenance of a relatively stable, relatively innocuous regime (recall that Syria did to Lebanon what the West is now doing to Syria - totally wrecked it), the US/Western intervention has been a disaster. Obama definitely created this mess by giving the green light to Turkey and home grown malcontents to rise up against Assad, pledging US support. The whole thing is a convoluted mess now and no one is covering themselves in glory, not Assad, or the Russians, nor the West. The best that can be hoped for is a total Western disengagement, a Russian/Alawite advance to some semblance of stability, and the rebuilding of this shattered nation.
