Bashar al-Assad’s father Hafez al-Assad became the president of Syria through a coup in the 70’s, and the Syrian people have been facing levels of maltreatment and injustice ever since. After the death of Hafez al-Assad, his son Bashar al-Assad became president and is now following in the same tyrannical footsteps of his father and is continuing to oppress his people. There have been no legitimate elections held in Syria, and everybody all knows the Russian presence in Syria is illegal too.
While a political solution may be reached in situations of when both sides cannot win, neither the (illegitimate) Bashar al-Assad regime nor the Russians have been looking for one and instead have been aiming to neutralize the Sunnis from their homes, waging a war against innocent women and children whom they deem are terrorists. They do not respect human rights nor the rules of war, and as long as there is no action to stop them will continue to engage in further crimes.
All ceasefires in Idlib as well as the Sochi Agreement have been violated multiple times by both the (illegitimate) Bashar al-Assad regime and Russia, and the people of Idlib are now facing genocide. This, here, must require a military solution; and it is time also for the UN Security Council to remove Russia from the council for its flagrant violations of international law and war crimes (i.e., the targeting of hospitals, schools, and civilian homes).
Late Thursday, at least 33 Turkish soldiers were martyred and dozens of others injured in an airstrike by the (illegitimate) Bashar al-Assad regime in the Idlib de-escalation zone, just across Turkey’s southern border.
As a member of NATO, the U.S. is duty bound to aid Turkey when it is under direct attack. As of now, both Russia and the (illegitimate) regime of Bashar al-Assad have entered a de facto state of war with Turkey and, therefore, with NATO. It is now time for NATO nations to fulfill their treaty obligations and to form a coalition with Turkey to once and for all eliminate the (illegitimate) Bashar al-Assad regime and to drive Russia out of Syria by force.
The Pentagon has also got to halt its support with the PKK/YPG/PYD [SDF] terror organization (headed by a former PKK member) whom are now cozying up to the Russians, as it’s just a matter of time before the Russians capture the thousands of truck-loaded weapons and the billions of dollars spent from US taxpayers; keeping in mind that under US law, providing material support to terrorism is a crime prohibited by the PATRIOT Act, codified in title 18 of the United States Code, sections 2339A and 2339B.
