President Assad of Syria Tells the Truth regarding ISIS-Al Baghdadi, for All Who Care to Listen

Western politicians are perception managers, puppets, deep state stooges. They bow to diktats from largely unelected polities. They are hollow, straw figures who sell out their countries and those whom they proclaim to represent with a whim. They have failed to "Stand on guard for thee". They project "progressive perceptions" as they support Al Qaeda/ISIS and the conduct of war crimes under a fake humanitarian mandate.

So, it is refreshing when a political figure tells the truth and takes a bold stand against the international cancer that is destroying international law, nation-state sovereignty, and humanity itself, with its war lies and its international terrorism.

President Assad of Syria tells the truth, for all who care to listen. In an interview with al-Sourya and al-Ikhbarya TV he discusses a number of important issues.

In reference to the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Hollywood-inspired narrative, he succinctly notes:

"This is part of the tricks played by the Americans. That is why we should not believe everything they say unless they come up with evidence. American politicians are actually guilty until proven innocent, not the other way around."

Very true. He might have added that the evidence must be from non-partisan sources, and certainly not from Western terrorist-embedded sources.

When questioned about the Russian-Turkish agreement, Assad immediately iterated another important, but neglected truth.

"Russian principles," he notes, "have been clear throughout this war and even before the Russian base that started supporting the Syrian army in 2015. These principles are based on international law, Syrian sovereignty and Syria's territorial integrity."

Russian principles present a stark contrast to the unprincipled Western rogue coalition (Washington-led NATO and allies) that daily commits Supreme International war crimes in its Regime Change war against Syria and its peoples.

Whereas most Westerners refuse the truth and thus share responsibility for the crimes committed by those who falsely claim to represent them, Assad shines light on foundational truths. He understands the root of the cancer destroying the world, and he understands the imperative for a correct "diagnosis". In the following statements he shatters the lies of "Fake Progressives", of "humanitarian interventions", of those who pretend to be "liberal" whilst at the same time supporting al Qaeda and ISIS:

"As for Trump, you might ask me a question and I give you an answer that might sound strange. I say that he is the best American President, not because his policies are good, but because he is the most transparent president. All American presidents perpetrate all kinds of political atrocities and all crimes and yet still win the Nobel Prize and project themselves as defenders of human rights and noble and unique American values, or Western values in general. The reality is that they are a group of criminals who represent the interests of American lobbies, i.e. the large oil and arms companies, and others. Trump talks transparently, saying that what we want is oil. This is the reality of American policy, at least since WWII. We want to get rid of such and such a person or we want to offer a service in return for money. This is the reality of American policy. What more do we need than a transparent opponent? That is why the difference is in form only, while the reality is the same."

When asked about the Kurds, Assad again shattered orientalist, divisive notions, with these observations:

"As for the Kurds themselves, most of them had good relations with the Syrian state, and they were always in contact with us and proposed genuine patriotic ideas. In some of the areas we entered, the reaction of the Kurds was no less positive, or less joyful and happy than the reaction of other people there."

He understands the imperial machinations behind balkanization projects and refuses to demonize all "Kurds", especially since most would likely prefer to remain in a sovereign, pluralist, democratic Syrian state.

Finally, with reference to the Constitution, Assad underscores the importance of international law and UN Resolution 2254 which reinforces foundational rights of sovereignty and self-determination: UN Resolution 2254 reaffirms

"its strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, unity and territorial integrity of the Syrian Arab Republic, and to the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations ". "

Such clarity, candor, courage. Assad gives the West every reason to nuke his country by exposing the hypocrisy, the true alliances, the sinister allegiances, the thuggery, the real agenda.

It's because of articles like this on sites like this that more people are hearing the truth, which directly contradicts the 24/7 screech of lying propaganda spewing from the trained monkeys on mainstream media.

I wish more people actually heard the truth. Unfortunately, voices like Mark's are shut out of the national conversation. The vast majority of U.S. citizens get lies and propaganda and accept them uncritically.

At least since the fall of the USSR, one of the primary objectives of US foreign policy has been to generate enemies sufficient to justify unprecedented levels of military procurement. We should not expect any logical behavior from a nation so motivated.

Ya, have recently heard how Clinton really put a power trip number on Russia after USSR fell. Totally wrong direction when world could have seen benefits of the cold war being over.
