Hillary Clinton Vs. Syria and Bashar al-Assad

Article found in ActistPost By Brandon Turbeville

As part of her campaign against the secular Syrian government and toward the destruction of Syria as a nation, Clinton has maintained the position – both as Secretary of State and as Presidential candidate – that “Assad must go.”[1] Like her role in the absurd propaganda push to overthrow and murder Muammar Ghaddaffi, Clinton has been the purveyor of similar outrageous lies levied against both the Syrian government and Assad himself.

Despite admitting early on that Assad was seen as a reformer after coming to power in Syria, Clinton nonetheless helped lead the charge in the campaign for his ouster.[2] [3] Consider her subsequent statements as she helped drum up support for ISIS and al-Qaeda as well as the US military invasion of Syria. According to Hillary, “The Reformer must go!”

On June 30, 2012, she stated that,

We are dealing with not only a murderous regime in a combustible region, but the potential for that region to be gravely affected by the continuance of this violence. But the stakes of inaction by the international community are just too high. If Syria spirals further into civil war, not only will more civilians die, not only will more refugees stream across the borders, but instability will most certainly spill into neighboring states. [4]

On July 17 of the same year, she stated “I can’t put a definite hour and minute on it, but the Assad regime is not going to survive. I just wish it would end sooner instead of later…That would be the best signal we could send to Assad that his days are numbered.” [5]

Yet Clinton did not stop with calls to “step down.” She continued her absurd and patently stupid commentary aimed at propagandizing the American public into believing that Assad was “Syria’s Butcher,” a “brutal dictator,” or some type of sectarian fascist.

For instance, during the hysteria orchestrated by Western governments and their media mouthpieces regarding the infamous “Hama Massacre,” Hillary stated that “The regime sponsored violence that we witnessed again in Hama yesterday is simply unconscionable. Assad has doubled down on his brutality and duplicity.”[6]

Of course, as informed observers reported long before any mainstream outlets, the “Hama Massacre” was nothing more than a propaganda scam perpetrated on Western audiences by NATO governments and the proxy Syrian National Council.[7] As it turned out, the “massacre” was actually a battle between government forces and Western-backed jihadists, not a massacre of innocent civilians.[8] It was not a heartless slaughter, it was a battle. Western media outlets simply relied on reports by the SNC in the typical “activists say” vein of journalism with no facts to back them up. “Activists” can rightly be translated to mean “death squad fighters” and “terrorists.” The alleged “massacre” merely one in a long line of manufactured “massacres” and “chemical weapons attacks” used by the West and promoted by Hillary Clinton that were later (or soon after) proven to be false.[9] See here[10] here[11] here and here.[12]

Clinton has repeatedly argued for increased assistance to the “Syrian rebels,” finding herself even more to the side of war-mongering than Obama, the head of the administration that has seen the bulk of the training, arming, deploying, and directing of jihadist death squads across Syria.[13] Of course, there has never been such a thing as a “moderate rebel” in Syria. The so-called rebels are nothing more than foreign-backed extremists raping, beheading, and cannibalizing their way across the Middle East with impunity.[14] That is what they are today and that is what they have been since the beginning of the Syrian crisis. [15] [16]

As mentioned earlier, Clinton was well aware of the jihadist nature of the so-called “rebels” in Syria. However, as in Libya, Clinton did much more than simply argue for the arming and training of these terrorists. She assisted in arming and training them through her policies as Secretary of State. While Clinton continually states that she argued for arming the “rebels” in Syria but was overruled by Barack Obama, the truth is that the State Department was already heavily involved in arming these terrorists.

For instance State Department official Robert Ford, ambassador to Syria, was a well-known death squad organizer on the ground as far back as 2009, the same year Hillary was appointed to her position as Secretary of State.[17] The policy of organizing, arming, training, and directing terrorists in Syria was a policy of the State Department when Hillary took over the position, during her tenure, and after she left office.

It should also be remembered that, in the massive propaganda attempt by the United States to justify American airstrikes against the Syrian government under the justification of “chemical weapons attacks” which were later demonstrated to have been conducted by the Western-backed terrorists, Hillary Clinton was an absolute cheerleader of the plan.

“The Assad regime’s inhuman use of weapons of mass destruction against innocent men, women and children violates a universal norm at the heart of our global order, and therefore it demands a strong response from the international community, led by the United States,” she said.[18]

Hillary would later go on to claim that failure to bomb Syria resulted in the creation of ISIS.[19] [20]

Of course, for a somnambulant population gorging itself on television may be convinced, but to anyone with even a shred of knowledge of the Syrian crisis, her claims are absolutely absurd.
