SYRIAN PERSPECTIVE EULOGIZES THE GIANT WHO BUILT SYRIA

He was born on October 6, 1930 in the largely Alawi mountain town of Qardaaha in a family described by all as tight-knit and traditional  Within years, this young man would enter military service and train to be a MiG pilot for the Syrian Arab Air Force.  He rose through the ranks and became a Lt. General until he finally booted out the incompetent communist/Ba’athist Salaah Jadeed and his coterie of ineffectual medical doctors: Nureddeen Al-Ataasi, Yusuf Zu’ayyen and Ibraaheem Maakhus in a putsch that took Syria back on the road to development and progress.   He built the Syrian Army and Air Force and trained his son, Dr. Bashaar Al-Assad, to lead this country after he knew his tenure in office would be cut short by ill health.  I was in Syria when he died on June 10, 2000 and listened to his son’s inaugural speech in July.  I met him personally in 1986 when I was a member of the delegation which attended the Annual Convention for Parliamentarians of Arabic Descent in Damascus.  It was an honor.  We will not forget you or the spirit of resistance which you embodied.  You never betrayed the Arabs although they betrayed you.  But you persisted and always emerged victorious.  We didn’t deserve you.  Ziad Amin Abu Fadel

 

WHAT DOES THE NEW AMNESTY LAW REALLY MEAN? 

alhomse

Colonel Yazan Al-Humsi

Colonel Yazan Al-Humsi, President of the First Military Court in Damascus seen here on SANA explaining the new law.

 

Colonel Al-Humsi described Legislative Decree 22/2014 in the following manner as related to Ba’ath Party sources:

The law applies to all crimes committed before June 9, 2014 and is enacted in conjunction with prior Amnesty laws like 70/2013.  All felonies and misdemeanors, their findings and sentences are affected.  It is a unique amnesty law because it encompasses partial reductions in sentence to 1/4, 1/2 or 1/3 of the periods and grants to the accused complete restoration of his rights after he has served out his sentence.

As far as the Code of Military Justice is concerned, all 172 provisions are affected except those having to do with espionage, high treason or recruitment for the enemy.

The law is designed to be both anticipatory and preventive, giving all citizens the chance to come forward and turn their weapons in within 2 months.

I’ve posted numerous times his famous speech concerning the muslim brotherhood from the early 80s ( at which point I was likely riding my big wheel blissfully ignorant of what went on outside my own neighborhood let alone in Syria ) while drawing the eery similarities of what has gone on the past few years. Without a doubt he was where he needed to be when the country needed him and now Dr. Assad fills that same role ably. With respect to this amnesty law, as you mention is may seem on the surface a little disquieting for a range… Read more »

Forgiveness goes a long way. There is little to gain from ‘an eye for an eye”. Assad is apparently a pragmatic soul who has the wisdom to know that it is better to forgive the miscreants and bring them back into the fold (to hopefully fight against the now revealed enemy) , rather than alienate them thus giving power to the enemy.

Hi, Dudley.

It turned out that the content and impact of that very short address just stunned the audience into silence. My Great-Great Grand Uncle said,in his diary, that even the breeze had stilled and the birds were silent. The thing was, I think, that Mr. Lincoln spoke from the depths of his very heart and soul.

As often comes out, USA and it’s puppet-allies did so much damage there, i’m not saying Saddam was perfect, he was a dictator, but, he did keep Iraq together, kept islamic fanatics out of the game, and military was strong back then.
Corruption is a signature of those newly installed puppet governments, it’s easier for their masters to hold their grip that way.

Seems like only way to end this insurgency is help from outside, probably Iran as Shark says, and maybe Syria too once the rats are dealt with.

Hey, don’t think that we get the right information. What we do know is that media is MISINFORMING us, just see Syria.

But in Iraq the army was built by an occupying force (US), meaning first and foremost that those soldiers are in the army for money, nothing else.

The fall of Mosul is really alarming. ISIS has now large caches of weapons and ammunitions and it has pretty much solidified its hold in Iraq, meaning it can turn its attention to Syria’s frontier. I have a somewhat heretic plan. Before “it” hits the fan, SAA should pull out of Deir el-Zor and al-Raqqa so it can focus on Aleppo and other fronts in the west. Why waste the besieged soldiers in al-Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor, who will likely be hit hard by ISS in the coming weeks? It’s not abandoning those areas, but focusing on FSA and al-Nusra… Read more »

Certain media in the west already speculate that the weapons of Iraq army are being transported to Deir ez-Zor.
(again- suddenly they report on ISIS, the NATO support for that group while forming at least is kept still- this looks all too bad…)

Abandoning the military compounds is no moral problem for the SAA. But there are civilians living there, which are used by ISIS as hostages more or less. If you abandon them you accept them getting massacred. And that is not good for the morale overall.

I am more and more shocked that western countries supported ISIS and ISIS tactics.

Let’s be honest with ourselves. If the wahhabi scumbag retard brigades posed any sort of threat to israel, then they would have attacked them already. As far as I’m concerned, the Wahhabis and the Zionists are complicit.

Now at some level ISIS seems to be unusually virulent, but I think as Ziad is intimating here, they are being constructed as the new boogeyman by the west.

If one is afraid of ISIS then one should become incontinent at the prospect of fighting the SAA or hezbollah because in reality, ISIS is virulent and a not insignificant force, but are in no way poised to enact a global caliphate.

You are right. Airpower is the key. My only concern is that with the dozen or so F-16s Iraq is to get from the US, there are few Iraqi pilots trained well enough to fly them yet. If I were a betting man, I would predict that you will see American pilots flying Iraqi jets. Seems like that happened in the Korean War with Russians flying the Mig 15s..

On the other hand, it is far more logical to draw the conclusion that Assad was right all along that Islamist terrorism is the greatest danger in Syria and in the region. It requires a united effort from all countries in the region and from the major world powers if it is to be defeated. The western powers should be joining with Russia and Iran in supporting the Syrian government’s heroic struggle to defeat some of the most barbaric forces on the planet, which are now bent on destroying at least two countries in the Middle East. But I digress… Read more »

Stolen (and donated) American weapons have been pouring over Syria’s border for quite some time. So far, it has failed to change the game.

iam not sure if we are in for many surprices in Iraq. There are alot of old Baath party followers and many soldiers from the “old days” there. This might be alot bigger than IsIs.

I hope Iran doesn’t get involved in this mess. Hope they just sit back and watch while developing their armed forces, missile technology and increasing border surveillance. It’s only a matter of time until the inevitable attack by the Western imperialists or their puppet rat army.

I am quite surprised with several reactions of Syrpers followers as well the media, this whole thing in Mosul smelled fishy since day 1, but what folks seem to have forgotten is that the Iraqi Government has named the ISIS supporters and funders months ago, the blamed and said it was at war with Saudi Arabia for funding this group. The whole thing was created without a lot of ISis terrorists, they do not have 100.000 fighters as many fear, they have 10.000 strong, and most of them in Syria, so how few thousands took Mosul, everybody knows now that… Read more »

“How to fight them ? 1. Get their funders down, attack Saudi Arabia and expose Turkey. 2. Unity iraq and Syria high military command, to fight this war together. 3. Keep killing all terrorists, push them to their supporters’ borders, Turkey, Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, let they deal with their on poison.” You are right, but exactly the opposite will happen. And this makes complete sense… just count…. imagine the whole ISIL Mosul attack incl. bribes costed around 5 Million US $. Or, okay 20 Million. Whatever. This story goes ballistic, worldwide. Weapons industry will have huuuuge orders, just… Read more »

Two divisions of the the Iraqi army which were stationed in Mosul abandoned their posts and fled, offering no resistance to the invasion. According to reports, the army personnel donned civilian clothing and left Mosul by blending in with the fleeing residents. Some reports say the Iraqi commanders in Mosul said they were given orders not to fight but to flee, but this has not been confirmed.
