Now let us assume that the crisis in Syria has nothing to do with Iran and that there are in fact no geopolitical reasons for the West’s interest in the area, no geopolitical reasons for Turkey possibly taking on the role in Syria that France took with Libya Indeed, let us assume that Qatar and Saudi really are concerned about human rights and that is why they are arming the rebels. assuming, to of course, that the “rebels” are actually real rebels. “Assume”, “assume”, “assume” and might it just be that so much assumption really does make an “ASS” out of “U” and “ME”?
Of course, this is about oil, this is about Iran, this is about regime change and this has nothing very much to do with human rights. Is it not quite ridiculous to hear the rulers of Saudi and Qatar use this line of argumentation? Is it just not a little suspect that Syria happens to be Iran’s main ally in the region and that “the motivations for an Iran strike were laid out as far back as 1992.“
That is why, when confronted with the following story in Al Jazeera, ego almost puked: “A new online video has called on Asma al-Assad, the wife of Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, to stand up for peace and stop her husband’s brutal crackdown on anti-government demonstrators” and we can read that the video was “conceived and produced by Huberta von Voss-Wittig, the wife of the German ambassador to the United Nations, and Sheila Lyall Grant, the wife of the UK ambassador.” Ladies, ladies, don’t make an “ASS” out of “U” and “ME”. Still as the evidence would appear to suggest, there are a lot of asses out there.
