ON SYRIA: I spoke via skype a short while ago with many genuine Syrian activists interested in true democracy in Syria, a democracy that is the will of the people to also resist imperialism and Zionism. Not the sham Syrian Free Army and the political prostitutes of the US and NATO.
Their struggle is not easy. Both the regime and Western Backed thugs are engaged in propaganda but the amount of garbage coming out from the well-funded PR machine of the thugs claiming to represent the “Syrian revolution” far eclipses anything the government can put out.
Meanwhile the Syrian people are caught in the middle. This is not a civil war.
Like Libya, it is a shameful attempt by Zionists and their Western Puppets to break-up Syria and make it compliant. The stakes here are much bigger though.
While Syria has little oil, it is a vital link between Iran and Lebanon in an area otherwise dominated by puppets stretching from Afghanistan to Morocco. That is why China and Russia correctly insist on not allowing Israeli-occupied Washington to get all the cards and thus allow unquestioned Israeli hegemony.
First let us learn about Syrian history: The history of Syria in 5,000 words (‘Le Mourre’) http://www.ufppc.org/book-notes-mainmenu-36/11040/
Then look into the current situation
