I was very hesitant to write or talk but the latest appalling experience prompted me to share some thoughts that crossed my mind at the time and during my subsequent reading and search. This finally helped me in directing the argument or the discussion toward the other side rather than keep defending my views.
1. Tere are over 2200 American soldiers defected from the American army in Iraq.
2. What do they say after the Washington Post reported that the remains of 274 soldiers died in Iraq were discovered in the rubbish refuse depot in an air base in Dover or Virginia? No wonder why the above soldiers defected from their army, they probably heard so many stories that have been swept under the carpet or into the dark rooms!
3. The torture POLICY was applied not just in Guantanamo bay but in Abu Ghraib, Busra and the rendition prisons. That was a try torture policy.
4. The storming of the religious sect (I can remember the name) in Oklahoma in which 146 people were killed by the police.
5. The total death in Libya according to their figures was over 102,000 people (64,000 people according to Mr Abdul Jalil in the first months of the bombing) , why the UN Human Right Council did note meet at the time and now are so concerned abut the Syrian’s death.
6. In Libya there were correspondents from allover the world, why all of them consistently reported on one side of the story; i.e. everything that was against the government.
7. In keeping with their facts distortion policy, the BBC made an interview with Free Syrian Army in Turkey and he was asked live how many were they? His answer was 20-30 soldiers. The next bulletin they omitted the question altogether.
8. The revolutionary democracies that emerged during the Arab Spring, they are unable to agree on naming a Minister of Interior in one country and failed to form a cabinet for a long time in others and now we see that the majority in some new parliaments are refusing to join or be part of the government programme. This reminds me of what has happened in Algeria in the past.
9. Advocating free speech and expression should not provoke such a harsh and inhuman attacks on the demonstrators in Wall Street and the London and subsequently England streets.
10. Where is the freedmen of speech and the democracy that they are advocating, and the West proclaims that they have it, when they removed the Syrian TV page from FaceBook, they sanctioned Addunia and Al Watan etc. The Istanbul Council members managed to silence and savagely attack a delegation of Artists tried to get access to a meeting with the AL Secretary General in Cairo? Is this the democracy and freedom of expression that they are advocating and claiming to implement “in the months ahead”?
11. Do they are allow or can they tolerate the presence in their streets of heavily armed militia check points that was shown on Sky repeatedly during 6-7 December by their Chief Correspondent Stuart Ramsey who has entered Syria illegally (previous Sky reporter Jeremy Thompson “enjoyed his experience” during the 20 days that he spent legally in Syria)?
12. How would they explain the State Department requesting the armed militia not do benefit from the government amnesty and not to hand over their weapons describing them as well trained and desciplined?
13. How is bombing and destroying the railway lines, the oil pipelines, hijacking and killing doctors and scientists and other community leaders and ordinary people? Are they those armed militia that the State Department described as well trained and armed men?
