Thank you for you passing by here. I came across recently an article about Syria from the Guardian, for once a little bit different from what we’re usually can find on the web.
The article related a case whereby a Syrian / Canadian have been arrested in U.S back in late 2002 for suspicion of terrorism. Without any formal charges, he has been deported to Syria, and tortured . After 10 month he has been released, and cleared of any links with terrorist. He received very consequent compensation from the Canadian government. You can read the full article here.
The U.S. officials are now very quiet about this subject, and everyone highlight how the Syrian regime is bad. As the article imply the U.S. has agreement with Syria, to be able to torture people of suspected ties terrorism “the dark side of war on Terror”. This shows how much U.S. officials have double speech about their foreign politics, when they accused the Syrian regime. Don’t make me wrong I am certainly note defending the Syrian regime about this extremely violent uprising. But dear reader, I guess we should realize we are in cold war not beetwen to Bloc but between multiple poles. And in this cold war that is the Syrian people who pays it unfortunately….
Have the BBC talked about the Bahrain recently ? Again according to the Guardian the U.K have sold £1m to the Bahrain government. Look here. This will certainly be used by the government against a uprising from the population. At the same time fews day ago William Hague make the highlight make comment on Syria and warns of Iran threat to peace of the world.
If Iran develop the bomb, I am sure it won’t be to attack anyone, but to reinforce their power in the middle east. Thus that would mean the western countries loosing controls over the middle east countries, and yes it could threaten the influences of Israel which in position of force because Israel have the nuclear technology.
The stability of this region is essentials for the western economies, because they are dependent on it, and they’re loosing influences, so they currently have a double speech where things arranged them to ensure stability within this region. Meanwhile millions of people suffering in Iran from the repressive regime, in Syria as for the very violent uprising….
In background of all of this there war on ideology between democracy and dictatorship. In the west it is common to promote the democracy values. Unfortunately soon enough I have realized these values are quickly forgotten, when some economic interest, political influence of a country are in play.
Finally what is the difference between a corrupt democracy in decay, and a dictatorship regime of more than billion people which apply censorship ?
