Canada's illegal sanctions, which serve to besiege all Syrian citizens, and therefore render assistance to invading terrorists, are also a weapon of aggression against the innocent and the righteous.

In terms of the "War on Terror", Syria wins easily, since Syria and its allies are waging a legitimate war against terrorism, while Canada and its allies are waging war shoulder to shoulder with all the terrorists in Syria -- there are no moderates --- in an imperial military campaign aimed at destroying Syria and effecting illegal regime change.

And Canada's pro-terrorism position isn't limited to Syria either. We supported al Qaeda to destroy Libya, and we support neo-Nazis in Ukraine -- the same ones that spearheaded the illegal junta.

While it is abundantly clear that Canada supports rather than opposes terrorism, Syria, on the other hand, fights terrorism, with all its heart and soul -- and they have plenty of both.

Syria's fight in defense of its sovereignty and territorial integrity against some of the most disgusting of terrorists is righteous.

Virginia Senator Richard H. Black describes the terrorist modus operandi in these words:

Terrorists are the criminals--not the Syrians. Much is made of alleged mistreatment of rebels in Syrian prisons. By contrast, the rebels have no prisons. They murder their captives--beheading, crucifying, stoning, burning or drowning them in steel cages. Rebels post hundreds of videos, depicting mass executions of prisoners and battlefield cannibalism. Many of their victims are women, children, priests and elderly noncombatants. International Law is clear; terrorists who commit such crimes are not entitled to protections under the Geneva Conventions. When terrorists attack civilian targets with suicide-bombs, ravage Syria's wives and behead their sons, they can hardly expect gentle treatment in response.
