Bashar Al Assad as compared to the King of Bahrain

To innaugurate the new blog I have chosen this post I found 7 days ago at “Wind from the East”

The comparison between Bahrain and Syria represents a fairly rational ground for building a very strong argument that a cynical double standard exists in world affairs today.

What is more, the different ‘handling’ by corporate and state-sponsored media of the reform movements in these two countries has become the tipping point for a few honest journalists who were moved to resign from Qatar’s official news machine, al-Jazeera (another story I want to cover here).

I think the double standard is so apparent in the case of Syria that the entire state-busting charade may be at risk in the issues of this present crisis. Has the West finally taken on a project of disinformation which is too large and audacious to avoid exposure in the eyes of a significant number of people in the reality-based community? One can only hope there’s time to make it so.

Wind From The East

Here is another image that I came across which illustrates the differences between two so-called “Arab dictators” (this image perfectly shows who the real “dictator” is). Many on the White Left still continue to oppose Bashar Al Assad either by outright supporting his overthrow by Western backed forces or by some magical “workers uprising”. Lets be clear about something, Assad is not a socialist but he is the President of the last remaining secular Arab state which maintains great unity amongst it’s population. He is supported amongst most (if not all) sectors of the Syrian population.This image speaks for itself.
