DR. SOROS: OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE MY BARREL BOMBS

Image from reaganrepublicanresistance.blogspot

I woke up this morning and arrived at my office only to turn on my desktop to see that the heavily compromised Human Rights Watch, an organ of the George Soros empire and the Arabian apes, had condemned our air force’s use of barrel bombs.  I had a huge belly laugh which I want to share with you today.  You see, HRW is a part of the Western propaganda machine which regularly spews out the kind of nonsense designed to stir up negative feelings with headlines usually grabbed by “yellow”, inarticulate,  nausea-inducing “news” sites like Al-Bawaba, Daily Star and Zionist media.  Because these media sites are relatively unknown and unread (unless you are an aficionado of bad grammar, awful syntax and corrupted thought processes), they are the ones to pick up on these themes.  HRW will say anything to discredit our president, Dr. Assad, and to empower the Turk-led failure called the Syrian National Coalition – a group now condemned to oblivion by even former ambassador and present spook and war criminal, Robert Ford.  (By the way, I have come to suspect Alalam as another case in point, but, for other reasons.)

The whole plan, you see, is to try to get the Syrian military to stop killing terrorists supported by Human Rights Watch and its principals.  Of course, that’s not going to happen any time soon.  Moreover, it is my fervent hope that more of these barrel bombs are dropped over the heads of the Alqaeda and ISIS rats sent to Syria by HRW’s favorite champions: the United States, Britain and Saudi Arabia.  The United States, you ask?  HRW is based in New York City and, like SOHR, is an arm of not only the Soros Open Society Foundation and the Arabian monkeys, but, also of the CIA.  Whenever HRW says anything about Syria, prepare for something – the Brits or the Americans are cooking up something – and it’s always noisome and malicious, hence the Persian expression: بوي بريطانيائي  or “it smells of British”.  HRW is our parakeet in the mines.  It warns you when the imbeciles at Langley or Vauxhall Cross are about to fly a kite to see how far it will go.

Think also of Stefant DeMistura’s plot to engineer a “freeze” in the fighting in Aleppo to give the terrorist rodents a chance to regroup, resupply and recharge themselves.  It may even be his plan to offer them safe passage toward their beloved Recep Tayyip Erdoghan, who, with a new American commitment to build up a “moderate” Syrian military force in Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar (oh, will the Saints protect us?), is now on the team dedicated to increasing the internal destruction of Syria.  The U.N. is in on the plan and Dr. Assad knows it.

Our barrel bombs are a thing of beauty.  Incredibly accurate despite what the liars at HRW and AI say.  The fins you see on the body of the cylinders are intended to give the projectiles stability to insure precise placement.  Our bombs are filled with all the ingredients necessary to send the enemy straight to the bowels of Hades without the need for medical intervention.  The ball bearings, nails, dross, bullet jackets, among other tiny objects, are meant to penetrate the skulls of vermin no matter how thick their crania may be.  Designed like a sleek, but somewhat crude, rocket, they are dropped very accurately over the exact place where our intelligence sources tell us the vultures are hiding.  They are dropped mostly by Hind helicopters which hover at sufficiently high altitudes to completely conceal their presence – to muffle the sound of the rotors mercifully holding up our heroic soldiers as they perform their solemn duties in killing pests.

The sound of a barrel bomb swishing through the air only to ignite when it touches the earth must be tantamount to a symphony by Shostakovich, rich in texture but with an explosive coda or finish. I can hear the tympani drums rolling amidst a soaring chorus of horns, brass and strings.  It is, indeed, a thing of beauty.

   Shostakovich seen here contemplating his unfinished symphony: “Barrel Bomb Symphony Number 7 in D Minor”.

Some might argue that HRW is merely trying to rebut Dr. Assad’s recent assertion that the Syrian military does not use barrel bombs, and, in so doing, cast doubt upon his credibility.  But, if that were so, it doesn’t absolve HRW of the accusation that it works for dark and insidious forces.  However, let us tell the world, the SAA does not use “barrel bombs”.  They are not called barrel bombs in Syria!  They are referred to in Arabic as “vertical bombs” which is why Dr. Assad told Jeremy Bowen of the BBC, during a typically inane interview, that he did not believe the military used “barrel bombs”.  So much for HRW and the BBC, for that matter.

So, in closing, let me once again reiterate my affection for the “vertical bomb”.  Each time it is dropped over the heads of vermin, let a clergyman, of whatever faith,  bless it and infuse it with accuracy, sanctity and lethality.  May the terrorists rest in the Inferno.

Mentat, You have raised some questions that deserve an honest answer. Here are some: 1. People can rise up whenever they feel oppressed, under severe ethnic mistreatment, in danger, and without recourse. 2. Undoubtedly, many Syrians chose to oppose the Syrian government on those grounds in 2011, although many were not as idealistic. Syria certainly never engaged in any ethnic cleansing campaign, given that its government was very secular oriented and ethnically diverse. Also, though repressive, it was still in a state of war with Israel. Relative to Western “democracies”–many of whom were not even democracies well even into the… Read more »

Fair enough, especially the last point given that revolutions typically make things worse before they make them better, if they ever do so.

If there is a legitimate case for martial law due to suffering an external aggression, that justifies temporarily restricting some rights, e.g. freedom of association, but does not grant the government a blank cheque against its own citizens. Thus, the above conditions should still apply. If the government is the external aggressor, then condition 1 is being fulfilled, against the citizens of another country, thus there is no legitimate case for martial law at home, and its own citizens should be fighting a civil war if necessary to depose their own warcriminal government, put them on trial and individually punish… Read more »

That interview which Assad gave to Jeremy Bowen of the BBC was hilarious regarding the MSM obsession with ‘barrel’ bombs. Assad was playing with Bowen who was demanding an admission of guilt for using such horrendously inhumane weapons. Assad never actually said the words: “we do not use barrel bombs”. He said: “we do not use barrels; we do not use pots; like any other military we use guns, bullets and bombs.” Bowen missed the sarcastic dismissal (maybe due to translation issues) and after the interview wrote on the BBC website: “Barrel bombs are cylindrical metal containers containing large amounts… Read more »

Nice post Ziad. Vertical bombs are a thing of beauty, from the military view. By the way. All bombs are “barrel bombs.” That is what a bomb is. An explosive in a cylinder. The western propaganda is just plain silly. As if a “barrel bomb” was somehow “unfair.” The jargon of the propagandists is stupid. By the way, the Zionist/NATO definition of a “terrorist” is someone who shoots back.

Yes, it is in the category traditionally known as a ‘gravity bomb’. The design highlights maximum cheapness through crude and unreliable engineering, though that ~20% failure rate is probably the best feature, according to those on the receiving end.

I’m not ‘mad’ about it at all, as the use of similar such weapons has been a regular feature in wars since before I was born.

My query is whether it is here being used for collective punishment against non-combatants, thus arguably as part of an ongoing war crimes policy.

My very strong criticism of the SAA’s use of the barrel bomb, is that the SAA does not use enough of them . I believe that they should be used much more often.The SAA should not feel ashamed for the use of a weapon which is very effective against rat fortifications. We all know that there are no civilians in areas that are active battle zones such as jobar.

@Mental.. Probably the first time he says something coherent.. albeit comes from an interesting question.. What will justify an armed Insurgency against a government? Complete repression and totalitarian government + that have a very destructive policy and people feel no future or economic progress. That said Democracy means SHIT.. is not about democracy but about development.. Assad when was a dictator was a very forward looking President ,and had a very prosperous nation with a GDP of 7%+.. not with crime or money laundering or human traffiquing but with real work.Exporting Food. Womens had the same value and rights of… Read more »

Also Include Turkey ,Libya and african nations that use Islam as the Law and or simply terrorist
sponsor states that is destroying the lives of millions. Those nations deserve its society to take arms and overthrow it.. and install a really future looking nation ,that seek the well being on its own people and promote world peace.

So people needs to see things from a broader perspective.. a dictatorship can be better than a democracy ..and democracy can be better than a dictatorship.. it all depends on who is on Power.. And the intentions of its rulers.. If Assad was interested in his family personal gains only.. All he had to do .is agree to become a puppet of Americans and Israel ,be a Yes man.. and enjoy decades of Rulership with the US government in charge of destroying any opposition.. as it happens in most others puppet nations of the west. But instead Assad have chosen… Read more »

What would justify for you an armed Insurgency against *your* government?

Denial of freedom of worship. Denial of civil rights based on national origin, creed, color, or race. Uncompensated taking of private property.
And that’s about it.

It appears like the white_house and Bibby rift is nothing but a well played act; a good cop, bad cop. Seems like they’ll do anything and promise anything only to put a wedge between Moscow and Tehran. This is about the only ace it has up its sleeve; however, a very powerful one if accomplished. only Iran seems to now have bigger leverage now than ever before. I wonder if Tehran would mull possibility of joining the trade block?

Iranian VP: CIA Behind Islamic State Reasons to believe ISIS is not a genuine group http://www.infowars.com/iranian-vp-cia-behind-islamic-state/ In October the former Iranian minister of intelligence, Heydar Moslehi, was more direct. He said ISIS was created by “the triangle of Mossad, MI6, and the CIA.” Moslehi said that “dollars from Saudi Arabia and some of the Gulf countries” are responsible for funding the terrorist army. “The coalition certainly does not want to destroy IS because it needs to use IS for most of its Satanic goals,” he added. His remarks followed those of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who said ISIS… Read more »

Soros, Ford shovel $196 million to ‘net neutrality’ groups, staff to White House

A reciprocal challenge to Mentard, Esq.: Outline in [at max.] 5 brief points the political conditions under which YOU personally felt sufficiently provoked to join or actively support the IRA’s armed revolt/rebellion/revolution against the British invaders. In other words, ‘brave Sir Mentard’ what did YOU do to support your own country’s struggle against British colonialism? Did you ever ‘strike a blow for freedom?’ # Please, no “attempted evasion” by saying “that’s not what I asked you.” You are not running this show. Methinks it’s time you answered some of OUR questions. I anticipate an honest account of your freedom-fighting exploits… Read more »

Perhaps Mentat could also justify the IRA’s indiscriminate targeting of civillians such as the deaths of a 12 yo and 3yo in Warrington in 1993 ….. brave freedom fighter in action indeed!
All the IRA did was skulk in the shadows murdering people …. at least the terrorists in Syria stand up on a battlefield and fight the army directly ( and in no way am I a supporter of any of the terrorist forces destabilising Syria)

Maybe openly fighting the British army resulted in history frequently in genozide for the Irish. In that context the collateral of just 2 people sounds idle. But I would not “justify” the killing of civilians at all. The point is just to look at it from 2 sides.

You did not rise to the challenge, yet arrogate to barge in and conduct an interrogation, using poorly-plagiarised barbs you saw me fire into those for whom they were precisely tailored?

LOL, did you ever try listening to yourself? I am imagining the hysterical tones that would necessarily accompany this ripe delivery. Either way, thanks for the hearty chortle, chum!

Whenever your head sufficiently deflates, my answer to the challenge question is posted above.
