ardee and dog—— is there a reason why you’re trashing Mr Fish about a cartoon
that someone else drew?

Oh dear Mr. Fish, One might question your motives here. Though ,of course, Assad is a butcher, that cartoon would be equally valid if your replaced him in the drivers seat with Obama.

Much too simplistic I fear.

yeah, Fish is kinda duped out on the globalists’ regime-change agenda across the
Arab world - as I wrote in another thread - I think TD’s recent feature on him -
he’s drunk too much of the foundation-funded Democracy Now koolade - but
then so has TD editor ARK and probably most of the TD crew

You despicable liars.  NATO spec op teams (US, UK, F, etc.) are active to the hilt—killing innocent civilians & posing the bodies, firing over the heads of demonstrators from the rear thus eliciting direct fire from the police facing the demos, etc.

This is not an Arab Spring uprising, but a NATO armed fake one.

I don’t know why I wrote this, you (the propaganda wing) won’t publish it.

Reminds me of Rachel Correy standing up to a bulldozer.

I find it unfathomable that the Syrian Army generals and soldiers would continue carrying out their grisly orders, knowing the horrors they are inflicting upon their fellow citizens.

What a painfully banal cartoon.

You could replace that image with any number of our allies—Bahrain, Yemen,
Saudi Arabia, etc. The real difference is that this dictator is not ours. With the
recent revelations of Saudi collusion with the terrorists that attacked us, may be
we should reconsider changing sides. But then Syria has very little oil and the
kingdom of Saud has plenty.
