Bashar Assad gave French newspaper Le Figaro a interview over the Labor Day weekend, in which Assad made the assertion that 80 to 90% of the rebels attacking his country are in fact Al Qaeda or Muslim Brotherhood terrorists. Apparently the only people on earth surprised by this revelation, are those supporting the Obamanation Administration.
Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad tried defending himself in an interview this weekend with French newspaper Le Figaro, picked up and translated by Buzzfeed’s Miriam Elder, by claiming to be fighting the same war as the US and the West. His opposition is almost entirely comprised of terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda, Assad told Le Figaro, as high as 80-90%. And he has only one strategy in dealing with AQ terrorists:
“We are fighting terrorists,” he said. “80-90% of those we are fighting belong to al-Qaeda. They are not interested in reform or in politics. The only way to deal with them is to annihilate them.”
Assad also hinted that Jordan has heeded his advice to stay out of the conflict because Amman came to the same conclusion:
He also said he had warned his regional neighbors, from Jordan to Turkey, from getting involved: “If we fail to beat terrorism in our country, it will naturally spread to other countries.” He implied that Jordan had been receptive to his warnings. “As for [Turkish Prime Minister Recep] Erdogan, I don’t think he has the least idea of what he is doing.”
Intervention by the West against his army would touch off a regional war, Assad warned, in part because it will provide momentum for terrorist networks:
Assad issued a stark warning that intervention in Syria could prompt a region-wide conflict. “The Middle East is a powder keg, and today the flame is coming very near,” he said. “We cannot talk merely about the Syrian response, but about what might take place after the first strike. But nobody knows what will happen. Everyone will lose control of the situation when the powder keg explodes. Chaos and extremism will spread. There is a risk of regional war.”
What Bashar Assad is claiming here, just happens to be the complete and unvarnished truth. Few rational or sane individuals in the West would dare to make the assertion that Bashar Assad is a good guy, let’s be honest, he isn’t he is a brutal dictator. Tragically compared to the terrorist he is fighting, he is the good guy. Islam is not the religion of peace, as so many brain dead western politicians and Fifth Column Treasonous Media fools have claimed. What it is, is a Arab Supremest based despotic tyrannical political ideology that masquerades itself as a religion.
Bashar Assad is unquestionably a brutal dictator, but he is a secular dictator who extended his protection (such as it was) to everyone in Syria, Christian and Jew equally as to those who are Muslim. Before the arrival of the Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood terrorists, the Assad regime did not tolerate the murder and violence against Syria’s non Muslim population.
Violence and murder against anyone not Muslim, especially Christians and Jews is the hallmark of Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood terrorists. Everywhere the Arab Spring has advanced, the Christian and Jewish communities have suffered death and violence against them. Libya and Egypt’s Christian and Jewish communities have been decimated. These were communities that had resided in these Arab countries for thousands of of years. Egypt’s Coptic christian communities are among the old Christian communities on the face of the planet. As likewise were the Christian communities of Syria, which like the Coptic Christian communities of Egypt are now being slaughtered by the terrorists of Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood.
In Egypt, the reward for his trying to set up a Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood Islamic tyrannical theocracy for Barack Insane Obama, has been the alienation of the Egyptian people. The majority of Egyptians are not only convinced that Barack Insane Obama is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda, but they are likewise convinced that he is doing so because he is in fact a Muslim Brotherhood member.

The Director of Research at the Brookings Doha Center, Shadi Hamid, tweets out about the Egyptian media depicting Obama as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Newspaper also claims that son of Muslim Brotherhood leader threatened Obama with release of “papers” revealing his MB membership.
While the odds of this being true are relatively slim, it certainly would go a long way to explaining Barack Insane Obama’s aid and comfort that he insists on providing Muslim Brotherhood/Al Qaeda terrorists. It also just might shed light on his trip to Pakistan back in 1981 when travel there by US citizens was illegal.
During the 2008 presidential election, I ran a number of stories at my website, AtlasShrugs.com, on the breach of Obama’s passport. Fast-forward to four years later, and there is no new information. Why is this murder case not being pursued? Who at the State Department is covering up Obama’s passport breach? Lt. Harris told federal investigators before he was murdered that he received “passport information from a co-conspirator who works for the U.S. Department of State.” What became of the “co-conspirator”? Why wasn’t he/she brought to trial?
I always thought that the perpetrators rifled through Clinton’s and McCain’s files to make it look as if they were looking for dirt on all three, but that it was Obama’s passport records that they were actually interested in accessing. Thus, secondarily, almost as an afterthought, there were “violations” concerning Clinton and McCain. For who stood to gain from a tampering, and why?
There is no way to tell what might have been done to Obama’s passport records by those who accessed them. Key information could have been altered or destroyed. On April 8, 2008, after the breach became public, Obama confessed to having taken a trip to Pakistan in 1981. The then-candidate said: “I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college.” Journalist Jake Tapper was surprised and said: “This last part — a college trip to Pakistan — was news to many of us who have been following the race closely. And it was odd that we hadn’t hear about it before, given all the talk of Pakistan during this campaign.”
Did Obama confess to this trip, which he doesn’t mention in either of his autobiographies, because of the passport breach? While the oft-repeated charge that Americans were forbidden to travel to Pakistan in 1981 appears to be false, questions remain about why Obama took the trip at all, and what he did there. Indian counterterrorism expert Bahukutumbi Raman asked pointed questions about this trip:
Why did he keep mum on his visit to Pakistan till this question was raised? Has he disclosed all the details regarding his Pakistan visit? Was it as innocuous as made out by him — to respond to the invitation of a Pakistani friend or was there something more to it? As I read about Obama’s visit to Pakistan in the 1980s, I could not help thinking of dozens of things. Of the Afghan jihad against communism. Of the fascination of many Afro-Americans for the jihad. Of the visits of a stream of Afro-Americans to Pakistan to feel the greatness of the jihad. Of their fascination for Abdullah Azzam[.]
Both John McCain and John Kerry have time and time again proven themselves to be utterly and completely unworthy of the position of public trust that they hold. Back in the 80’s those paying attention and now blinded by his Vietnam war experience as a POW learned that John McCain was as corrupt a Senator as they come, for sale to the highest bidder.
The story of “the Keating Five” has become a scandal rivaling Teapot Dome and Watergate
A A A Comments (1) By Tom Fitzpatrick Wednesday, Nov 29 1989
You’re John McCain, a fallen hero who wanted to become president so desperately that you sold yourself to Charlie Keating, the wealthy con man who bears such an incredible resemblance to The Joker.
Obviously, Keating thought you could make it to the White House, too.
He poured $112,000 into your political campaigns. He became your friend. He threw fund raisers in your honor. He even made a sweet shopping-center investment deal for your wife, Cindy. Your father-in-law, Jim Hensley, was cut in on the deal, too.
Nothing was too good for you. Why not? Keating saw you as a prime investment that would pay off in the future.
So he flew you and your family around the country in his private jets. Time after time, he put you up for serene, private vacations at his vast, palatial spa in the Bahamas. All of this was so grand. You were protected from what Thomas Hardy refers to as “the madding crowd.” It was almost as though you were already staying at a presidential retreat.
Like the old song, that now seems “Long ago and far away.”
Since Keating’s collapse, you find yourself doing obscene things to save yourself from the Senate Ethics Committee’s investigation. As a matter of course, you engage in backbiting behavior that will turn you into an outcast in the Senate if you do survive.
They say that if you put five lobsters into a pot and give them a chance to escape, none will be able to do so before you light the fire. Each time a lobster tries to climb over the top, his fellow lobsters will pull him back down. It is the way of lobsters and threatened United States senators.
And, of course, that’s the way it is with the Keating Five. You are all battling to save your own hides. So you, McCain, leak to reporters about who did Keating’s bidding in pressuring federal regulators to change the rules for Lincoln Savings and Loan.
When the reporters fail to print your tips quickly enough–as in the case of your tip on Michigan Senator Donald Riegle–you call them back and remind them how important it is to get that information in the newspapers.
The story of “the Keating Five” has become a scandal rivaling Teapot Dome and Watergate. The outcome will be decided, not in a courtroom, but probably on national television.
Those who survive will be the sociopaths who can tell a lie with the most sincere, straight face. You are especially adept at this.
And who can forget John Kerry committing TREASON by meeting with the Viet-cong in Paris to negotiate while the Vietnam war was still raging.
The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) is a federal law, enacted by Congress. Its provisions are contained in United States Code, Title 10, Chapter 47. Article 36 of the UCMJ allows the President to prescribe rules and procedures to implement the provisions of the UCMJ. The President does this via the Manual for Courts—Martial (MCM) which is an executive order that contains detailed instructions for implementing military law for the United States Armed Forces.
The UCMJ states:
ART. 104. AIDING THE ENEMY
Any person who——
(1) aids, or attempts to aid, the enemy with arms, ammunition, supplies, money, or other things; or
(2) without proper authority, knowingly harbors or protects or gives intelligence to or communicates or corresponds with or holds any intercourse with the enemy, either directly or indirectly;
shall suffer death or such other punishment as a court—martial or military commission may direct.
What we know:
John Kerry, in sworn testimony before the Senate in April 1971, said he met with the North Vietnamese and Vietcong delegations in Paris in May 1970. He said they discussed their peace proposals —— especially the eight points of Madam Binh. Kerry strongly recommended that the Senate accept those proposals.
I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh’s points…
…I realize that even my visits in Paris, precedents had been set by Senator McCarthy and others, in a sense are on the borderline of private individuals negotiating, et cetera.
In the ensuing months, Kerry became even more strident in his insistence that the US accept Madam Binh’s (and the NVM and VC’s) peace proposals.
Meanwhile, other representatives of Kerry’s group, the Vietnam Veterans Against The War (VVAW ), met with the NVM and VC delegations in Paris, in March 1971. They were even photographed sitting at a table with them, as in a photo displayed in Winter Soldiers, by Richard Stacewicz, page 284.
Subsequently, VVAW representatives met with the North Vietnamese and Vietcong delegations on numerous occasions, both in Paris and even in Hanoi.
The VVAW even signed a treaty with the North Vietnamese which included all of Madam Binh’s points, as noted by the historian of the anti—war movement, Gerald Nicosia, his book Home To War:
These people signed their own symbolic “people’s peace treaty” with the Vietnamese. As Jan Barry recalls, the gesture was intended as a means of embracing the people they had harmed, of asking forgiveness for those they had killed.
You can read the “Peoples Peace Treaty” here:
According to Nicosia, FBI files show Kerry made another trip in 1971 to meet with the NVM and VC delegations:
The [FBI] files record that Kerry made another trip to Paris that summer to learn how the North Vietnamese might release prisoners.
It is quite likely that Kerry’s actions were in violation of the so—called Logan Act: United States Code Title 18, Part I, Chapter 45, Sec. 953
In light of their past actions, is it really any wonder that John McCain and John Kerry are joining hand in hand with Barack Insane Obama in an attempt to provide material support as well as aid and comfort to America’s sworn enemies?
Perhaps the only thing surprising is that the self anointed aristocrats in the GOP are helping McCain and Kerry betray America.
