FIRST POST – March 19, 2012 – Numerous article can be read on the internet today concerning Syria’s immense military establishment and the dissimilarity with Libya. It appears that failed Western foreign policy has ignited some reflection on the differences between the two countries. Nevertheless, SyrPer has been bringing you accurate and prescient reportage you can get nowhere else.
The bombing in Aleppo took place in the Suleimaniyya Quarter of the city fairly close to my sister-in-law’s home. This is a largely Christian enclave with an heavy Armenian presence. I have visited this part of Aleppo on fifty occasions. According to Syrian state sources, two people were killed in the blast. BBC used the word “rocks” to describe the effect of this burp on Aleppan society. My sister-in-law said that they just barely heard the explosion even though it took place about four blocks from their home. This was hardly big news. But the media hype and exagerration is remarkable.
My friend, Nayel, who is Jordanian claims that the Saudi Arabian army is not moving across the desert to deliver weapons to Syrian terrorists. He says the king would never risk the stability of his country to please the feckless Arabians. Syria could cut water and electricity off to Jordan – forget bombing the Saudi column into Palookaville. Yawn.
A major weapons smuggler in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon has been arrested by Lebanese security
forces. This man has traded smuggling hashish for instrumentalities of murder. Syria should demand his extradition now that we have capital punishment for arms dealers who treat with terrorists.
