Hollande’s Syria comments: evil or stupid?

Bachar al-Assad est l’allié objectif des jihadistes

Bashar al-Assad is the de facto ally of the jihadists (fighting to oust him)

Francois Hollande


Normally, I preface my posts on this blog with something wise from great French politicians and scholars, which signify the traditional place of France at the heart of all political history as a result of the French Revolution. However, today I feel a quote demonstrating incredible stupidity is necessary.

In Syria, dictator Bashar al-Assad is fighting essentially the same battle being waged by pro-Western dictators Sisi in Egypt and Hiftar in Libya, yet the some Western states are incapable of seeing the resemblance so they insist al-Assad is a different creature, whose opposing Islamists are benign and democratic. So they support the military regimes in Egypt and Libya, yet oppose the military regime in Syria, for no reason at all other other than their own prior idiocy and bad judgment on the Syrian regime’s survivability. In other words, for the West, Syria is no longer about democracy but about making the West not looking as dumb as it actually is. Now, however, French President Francois Hollande has come up with the even crazier alternative: both sides in the war are evil… and (because he doesn’t like either of them) they are …allies!!?!

Either Francois Hollande is involved in Orwellian doublethink to believe that the enemies of Assad are simultaneously the allies of Assad (all the while his is the side giving them direct material and propaganda support by supporting the insurgency in Syria) or he is too stupid to hold office. Either he thinks the French people are too stupid to see that it is not al-Assad, but Hollande, who supports terrorism in Syria, or he is so ill-informed that he does not understand who is fighting who in Syria.

To really believe that al-Assad is allied to the violent terrorists fighting against him (who are actually getting their vast quantities of funding and other support from Western allies like France) would mean Hollande has been kicked so hard in the head that his ability to speak after it at all astonishing.

I am quite sure that my next article at Press TV will address the Syrian crisis, in particular how some Western powers try to shirk responsibility for the calamity happening there and still act as if they are a civilizing presence, when they actually stirred up and justified all the violence in the first place in the name of the creepy Neocon dream of forcefully imposing “democracy”.
