Whoever is advising Romney on Foreign Policy needs sacked tout de suite..

Mitt Romney called for Syrian rebels to be supplied with heavy weaponry on Monday, as he condemned Barack Obama for failing to lead an international response to President Bashar al-Assad’s slaughter of civilians.

Good call,  Mitt. Let’s advance the Jihad and arm the Al Queda supporting opposition. The BEST policy in Syria is to leave the rotten lot to it. There will be good outcome and trying to placate the so-called “opposition” is folly. Bashar is a monster but so are those seeking to take power from him! There is no win:win for the US here, only a lose:lose. Romney is naive at best, stupid at worst!

Well, the news is not that surprising, is it?

Former Syrian PM Riad Hijab, who defected to Jordan last week, has said the Syrian regime is collapsing “morally, financially and militarily”. Speaking in the Jordanian capital, Amman, he said the regime did not control more than 30% of the territory. He called on the opposition abroad to unite and on the Syrian army to stand alongside its people.

It’s clear that it REALLY  is a matter of WHEN not IF. But what then? It is obvious that militant Islam has a dog in this fight and we are backing it. How does that make YOU feel? I’m uncomfortable about this. However it ends, it will not be good.

As you know, I oppose intervention in Syria on the basis we have no dog in the fight there. Bashar is a thug, the “Free Syrian Army” are also thugs with an Al Queda twist – but guess what? Yip, we’re supporting the guys with the thang for radical Islam.

The UK is to increase the support it provides to rebel fighters in Syria. Foreign Secretary William Hague is committing an additional £5m to fund communications equipment and medical supplies – mostly to the largest rebel group, the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

£5m of OUR taxes, given by Hague to these goons.  Hopeless stuff. It seems that those wise old coves at the F.O. are once again encouraging the replacement of one rotten regime by another extreme Islamic one.

Oops Apocalypse!

Anna Wintour of Vogue had the great idea, or misfortune, (all depends on timing as which is which) to get Joan Buck to do a really in-depth interview with the eye-surgeon turned Accidental Syrian Dictator and his gorgeous British-educated wife; Arab Spring, and all that!  ( Vogue really tried to pull all the pages, but, you know the Internet; once its out, its OUT!) Vogue printed this load of garbage in February 2011.

One phrase of this soft-spoken ex-surgeon’s wife really brings the Vogue piece to life, when she states “ For us its about the accumulation of cultures, traditions, values, customs. Its the difference between hardware and software”

I just wonder if the doe-eyed Asma Al-Assad, when speaking about the hardware, was discussing her husband’s readiness to use the T-72 tank guns against unarmed women and children; or was she talking about the helicopter gunships, supplied of course by a compliant and ever friendly Russia, which are so much more effective against these pesky ‘armed terror gangs’ which seem to have cropped up all over the same place which she stated was ‘free of bombings, unrest and kidnappings’?

A riddle wrapped in an enigma shrouded in mystery.

Syria. The country is in an uproar, the military hardliners of President Assad’s regime send their tank and artillery shells against defenceless villages and suburbs where the opposition rebels have been staying. No-one can be in any doubt that multiple massacres have, and indeed are, taking place. A harsh dictatorship is reacting the only way they know how, because, if they do flinch, they will die!

The West hides behind the UN coattails of clowns such as Kofi Annan, and apart from hosting conferences to ‘support’ the so-called Government-in-Exile, are prepared to do nothing else. Russia stands behind their friend Syria, and since no-one else wants to cosy up to them in the Mediterranean, thats the way things will stay. No Libya-style UN Revolution for Syria.

But just look at who is funnelling arms and cash into the hands of the rebels who fight against the Russian-equipped forces of Syria. Yep, Saudi Arabia; itself a ruthless Monarchist regime, which brooks no internal opposition whatsoever, is paying good money, along with the wannabe Qatarese, to help get ever-heavier weaponry into the hands of the Rebel fighters. Just think about that for a second, if you will. Here is one virtual Dictatorship funnelling guns towards the opposition of another Dictatorship.

And they said that Satire is dead!

The United Nations. It’s the “highest moral authority” for some on the Left. It’s an obscene immoral abomination for most on the right. But it has standards. So, for example, it refuses to countenance Israel as a member of the UN Human Rights Council, but holds no such qualms for more… progressive regimes over the years such as..erm.. Cuba, Libya, China, Russia to name but a few.

However, can you guess which in the news Nation looks set to get a seat on the UNHRC? Yes – that’s right – SYRIA. Looks like Boy Bashar has slaughtered just enough people to get Syria a seat on this important UN body which care so passionately, so deeply, about Human Rights.

In the past decade, the U.N. Human Rights Council elected Col. Muammar Gaddafi’s Libya as chair, hailed Sri Lanka’s “promotion and protection of all human rights” after its army had killed thousands of civilians, and convened an emergency session to lament the death of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, founder of the Hamas terrorist organization. Even so, historians will now have to decide whether the U.N.’s flagship human rights body is about to sink to a new low.

According to a U.S.-sponsored and EU-backed draft resolution that was debated today during informal meetings at the council in Geneva, the murderous regime of Bashar al-Assad is a declared candidate for a seat on the 47-nation U.N. body, in elections to be held next year at the 193-member General Assembly. As part of the U.N.’s 53-nation Asian group, Syria’s candidacy would be virtually assured of victory due to the prevalent system of fixed slates, whereby regional groups orchestrate uncontested elections, naming only as many candidates as allotted seats.

All is proceeding to plan in Syria!

Efforts to forge a united international response to the Syria crisis have been dealt a double blow as the West rebuffed a proposal to work with Iran and Russia rejected a new US peace initiative.

Kofi has shown his…erm, experience, by suggesting that Iran be brought into the peace making process. Oddly enough other western powers did not immediately see the benefits of placing the nexus of terror and regional instability into the situation!!! Meanwhile, Russia has told Hillary Clinton that it will not support any plan that involves the removal of Boy Bashar.

So, the United Nations shows its true colours as the genocide continues….

It’s not really surprising that Kofi’s peace plan for Syria has come to nothing? How could it possibly succeed when the UN itself is a corruptocracy?

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has expressed deep frustration with the violence in Syria, two days after reports emerged of another massacre. Mr Ban said there was little evidence that Syria’s government was complying with envoy Kofi Annan’s peace plan. Activists say government-backed militias killed 78 people in Qubair village on Wednesday. The government said terrorists killed nine people.

You say potato, I say potatoe. It’s n0t our fight.

When the most powerful and vicious organised crime racket on the planet gives you a big job that you’d better not mess up, this is what your face looks like.

That’s Bassma Kodmani, head of the mysterious Syrian National Council, coming out of this year’s Bilderberg meeting the other day in Virginia. It’s the SNC which sprang up in Turkey with the Syrian uprising and which has been co-ordinating the Syrian opposition. The Guardian tells us who Kodmani is:

She looks a sad little puppet. I’d have thought she’d look happier, having had the hawks of Bilderberg cluck around her for the weekend, planning her new country. It’s no wonder they’ve taken Bassma under their wing. After all, she spent seven years at the Ford Foundation. She’s “one of them”.

Oh right. The Ford Foundation then, a CIA front group (the one where – coincidentally – Obama’s mother worked for Timothy Geithner’s father). So that’s what she is. We’ve noted previously that Assad is toast, then on the occasion of H. Clinton announcing that some powerful opposition force would arise “somewhere, somehow” and that they will “find the means to defend themselves as well as begin offensive measures.”

Gosh, that’s some crystal ball she’s packing.

People gather at a mass burial for the victims purportedly killed during an artillery barrage from Syrian forces in Houla in this handout image dated May 26, 2012

As long time readers of this site know, I view the United Nations as a vast bloated corruptocracy, a moral cesspit, and an institution that every freedom loving democracy should disassociate with. Of course that’s just my view, others are welcome to think otherwise. Some on the left see the UN as the “highest moral authority” which is certainly stretching credulity beyond breaking point but then again so is being a Leftist in the first instance. As the slaughter in Syria continues, the UN has shown exactly what it is made off by issuing a “strong statement” condemning the killings. Wow – bet that Boy Bashar a trembling in his Palace!

What to do about Syria? Do we invade and topple Assad? Does this then mean that another militant Islamic regime will surplant his dynasty with something much worse? Do we stand idly by and let them fight it out? Do we have a dog in this fight?
