Ya I'm not saying the dude is awesome but we can go back and forth on world leaders comparing them relative to each other and then relative to our ideals, however at the end of the day it's more so relative to the country and relative to Syria the dude is the fucking man. US democracy won't work in the ME, at least not right now or anytime soon. Best to let them sort it out and just keep an eye on them and our hands pulling strings behind the curtain as necessary.Oh, Assad is legitmately terrible in so many ways, for so many reasons. The best you can say for him is exactly that, he's the best they're going to get.
It's also not a matter for the US military to decide. Once upon a time we had a generally agreed on policy to not intervene in civil wars. The past 20 years have shown us why that was a wise policy to maintain.
It's one of the very few things that Clinton did that enraged me at the time and as i've grown older I have come to understand the widsom of it. When he abandoned the USS Cole.
Of course, within this piece from CNN, they still had to repeatedly lecture the viewer that the majority of muslims in no way condone such behaviour. Which is really the BIGGEST lie you can tell. The worst lie we are told about muslims by the media is the myth of the tiny minority. If the majority really had even the slightest bit of Western-compatible character, sharia "zones," intimidation and threats of violence wouldn't be virtually ubiquitous in newly-muslim enclaves.
Can't believe that this is from cnn.
Germany: Illegal Afghan Migrant Murdered Girlfriend for Refusing to Convert to Islam - Jailed for LifeLeonora converted to Islam at 15 and traveled to Syria two months later to join ISIS. Only three days after her arrival she became the second wife of a Saxon ISIS fighter called Martin Lemke. Leonora’s had claimed that her husband only worked as a technician fixing computers and mobile phones but in actuality the former welder was part of the religious police called Hisbah and Amnijat. Which are known to have taken part in executions and beheadings.
The now 19-year-old mother of two, claims naivety as the reason for joining ISIS. “In the beginning, when they controlled large cities and we had a lot of money everything was fine”, she told reporters. Today she says she made multiple attempts to flee because the Islamist group didn’t care about women. Leonora is now appealing to Germany to allow her to come home to her family, claiming she knows she made a mistake.
Cornelia Liebau, the Mayor of Sangerhausen, her hometown made the following statement, which she alleges is shared by many: “I think she earned a second chance. She is only 19 and has two little children.”
UK: Birmingham burglar who had sex with corpse jailedAn Afghan migrant has been jailed for life in Germany after murdering his girlfriend because she refused to convert to Islam. The asylum seeker, identified as Ahmad S. due to German privacy laws, was found guilty of stabbing 17-year-old girlfriend Mireille 14 times at her flat in Schleswig-Holstein in March last year because she ended their relationship. Ahmad S. denied the murder in court and claimed that someone else must have committed the act.
The court heard how Ahmad S turned out to be 11 years older than he claimed, after he arrived in Germany seeking asylum as a minor in 2015 - arguing he was just 18. The court had doubts about his age and ordered an age test. Forensic expert Sabine Gumpert testified at the start of the trial that Ahmad S. was at least 21 years old and that her examination strongly suggested he could even be 29 years old.
He was found guilty on murder charges by the district court of Flensburg in the northernmost German state of Schleswig-Holstein. He arrived in Germany in 2015 as unaccompanied minor refugee and filed for asylum - which was rejected.
A burglar who had sex with a corpse after breaking into a funeral parlor has been jailed for six years. Kasim Khuram, 23, had sex with a woman’s body after lifting the lids of coffins at the Central England Co-Operative undertakers in Walsall Road, Great Barr, Birmingham, on 11 November. Khuram, of Kenilworth Road, Aston, forced his way into the parlour at about 03:00 GMT while high on Mamba and PCP and after drinking vodka.
Sentencing at Birmingham Crown Court, Judge Melbourne Inman QC said the crimes “offend all human sensitivity”. “I am not aware of – and nor have I been able to find – any similar case. It would be difficult to think of a greater deprivation of the dignity of the dead”, he said.
He disturbed "multiple coffins", stealing jewelry and desecrated the bodies of two women. He was arrested at the scene by police officers alerted by the parlour's alarm. Following his arrest, Khuram told officers: “I bet you think i have been shagging them don’t you?” He was later linked to the scene by his DNA profile.
He had faced a maximum prison sentence of 10 years for burglary and two years for sexual penetration of a corpse. Following sentencing the judge told him he will have to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
yeah this is the last thing I saw on that frontThe last I checked there's 0 proof that Assad has ever used gas but there's plenty linking a multitude of gas attacks to ISIS. Also the faked attacks filmed by them. Assad's crime was dumb bombing urban areas but I doubt that he could've fought them in such places and done much else. The gas attack hysteria was just warmongering from the politicians and the media who were salivating at the thought of another invasion.
Pretty sure I've mentioned it before, but I remember pretty vividly how Assad used to be the poster child for Democracy in the Middle East.Evil genocidal monster who GaSeS HiS OwN pEoPlE Assad walking down the street with no body guards.
Man of the people and Rebuke Of Trump Macron has to sit behind walled troops 24 hours a day.
Clinton/Obama are the ones he pissed off. Nuff said.Pretty sure I've mentioned it before, but I remember pretty vividly how Assad used to be the poster child for Democracy in the Middle East.
At some point in the last decade he pissed off the wrong people I guess and now he's somehow gone from "we wish every leader would be more like Assad" to "that guy is definitely a war criminal and it's a travesty that he's in power."
