I hadn’t posted on this blog for quite some time. Having temporarily taken a step back from following the 24 hour news cycle, I felt a little bit more relaxed in my day to day life – but hey ho – here I am again. I just had to leave a quick post as I noticed the Guardian were still at it.
The article in questions is;
The author basically blames the rise and continuation of ISIS in Syria squarely on Assad – which seems completely ridiculous. We all know Assad is a brutal dictator with a lot of enemies but to paint such a simple picture is deceitful.
Open the article yourself and search for the words ‘Qatar’ and ‘Saudi’. Not one result. This one sided analysis tells you all you need to know about its motivation.
One of the readers also leaves a comment which sums up the situation;
” A quick google search reveals who the author Frederic C Hof actually is and it’s staggering the guardian have given him a platform.
Served with the state department during Bush’s presidency and was a co-founder Armitage International Associates with Republican Political Richard Armitage who was Bush’s deputy Secretary of State and who had been lobbying the US president’s office to invade Iraqi since 1998 and who had threatened to bomb Pakistan back to the stone age.
Have a read what Mr Hof’s company gets up to it might give you an idea why he wants rid of Assad: http://www.armitageinternational.com/about “
The Guardian is still weaponized.
