Syrian oppositionist: "In the end, Bashar is not so bad"

47
The main opposition group, the Free Syrian Army (SSA), which the United States was placed on, is on the verge of collapse due to low morale, desertion and mistrust of its leadership, writes Slobodan Lekich, an American correspondent for the Stars and Stripes newspaper. RIA News.




“The SSA is the largest (about 35 thousand people) and the most secular of the groups fighting against the Syrian authorities,” the author notes.

“In the event of its collapse, both US attempts to create a single ground force to combat the Daisy terrorist group and efforts to resolve the Syrian conflict could be under threat,” he writes.

According to Lekich, "if it turns out that the SSA can no longer be relied on, the United States and its allies will have to turn to smaller and radical groups that are supported by Qatar and Saudi Arabia." However, in this case, a peaceful settlement of the conflict, implying a compromise with the Syrian authorities, is unlikely to be achievable.

"Unlike the more radical groups, the SSA failed to achieve much success on the battlefield, which led to a decrease in funding and a drop in morale," the newspaper notes.

The fighters, with whom they managed to talk to the correspondent, admit that they are tired and more and more lose faith in their command.

“They constantly steal our earnings. We have to get $ 400 per month, and in fact we only get $ 100, ”said one of the volunteers.

In addition, according to him, the command does not help the wounded and does not support the families of the killed soldiers.

“A certain role in the demoralization of the SSA was played by the fact that in the West it was considered impossible to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad by military means. As a result, many SSA fighters join the more organized and well-funded terrorist organization, Front al-Nusra, which is considered to be an al-Qaida unit, ”writes Lekic.

Some "no longer see the point in continuing to fight, they believe that it is time to conclude a truce with the government," said the SSA volunteer.

“In the end, Bashar is not so bad,” added Lekic interlocutor.

    Bad Assad or good now is not the most important thing. The Syrian opposition should understand that while there is an external enemy that threatens the very existence of the state of Syria, it is stupid to divide the good and the bad. One people can always come to an agreement between themselves. The main thing now is to free Syria from the interventionists who are behind Daesh .... Well, then you can decide who is how bad or good.

    Another confirmation of the virtual absence of the Syrian opposition.
    Assad is a legitimate president and within the country there were no contradictions at the level of an armed uprising against the current government.
    The armed rebellion was paid and organized from the outside - this is the conclusion that follows after reading the article. And these rebels are not opposition, they are Syrians fighting for the interests of their foreign employers. They are no different from other terrorists, except that the pockets of employers are different. The whole goal of moderate, immoderate, foreigners is united by a common goal - to tear the country apart, and for none of them this goal is an internal conviction, moreover, the Syrians do not even realize that they are destroying Syria and depriving themselves of their own country.
    And the West is now in difficulty — how to present the world with an opposition that does not exist in nature and which of the bandit mercenaries to bring to light as opponents of the “dictator”.

    It’s enough not to pay extra 3/4 of the salary and the “fighting spirit”, which was already not up to the mark, tends to zero. If not for the help of the United States and the Gulf countries, then about the so-called. "moderate" would have long been forgotten.

    Initially, it was clear that Assad was better than Daesh and Al Qaeda, but the Syrians are more visible ... What did Assad annoy them with? By the fact that he is an educated person and not a brainless monkey with a martyr’s belt? The fact that he wears an expensive suit and not traditional clothes and skullcaps? So I think that a modern leader should be like that. Gaddafi over there as a Bedouin dressed and lived in a tent but still killed ... East is a delicate matter ...

    (I sketched a mini-play here) Somewhere in Syria ...

    a clear day ... the militants are digging hard ... getting ready to stand in the region seriously and for a long time ...
    I hear a conversation between two bearded men .....
    -Musa! I shook the world of these Russians and this Assad, I turned them around, I will cut everyone, we will reach Europe
    - Camille! I agree never to Assad to be on this earth! we will build a new state alla! I'm at the Bar !!!


    here the sound of approaching aviation is heard ....

    in a panic, bearded men begin to poke around holes and shout Alla, I'm in the Bar ...... suddenly explosions, debris, dust, dirt, everything is split into molecules ..... aviation is being removed ....
    slowly from the hole rises the head of one of the surviving militants .....
    -Fucking Rusish .... After all, Bashar is not so bad laughing

    The war for money is not the opposition! This is earnings, and still who pays the money. Americans, terrorists or aliens to get bigger and more frequent. The idea here is secondary. The same situation is in Russia. Only, thank God, there is no war. And all the opposition is just waiting for its 30 pieces of silver!

    It is understandable! Why should Fashington finance and supply weapons to the SSA if it is not radical enough and cannot fail
    Assad - the main goal of shit-democrats! But the thugs from the IG, An-Nusra and other gangster rabble can! Therefore, they are supported by shit-democrats, including the Saudi-Qatari ones, but they hide it in every possible way, since it is not good for your shitty image to face the whole world as a curator of all these scumbags! And shit-democratizers would have succeeded if the Russian bear had its keen sense of justice! And now they are up and down: the FSA cannot defeat Assad, and the Russian bear will not allow the thugs of IG, An-Nusra and other frostbitten!

    Thirty-five thousand, and how many have already died and how many they killed government soldiers, how many destroyed houses and killed civilians, they admitted that ISIS captured the country.
    And all that was needed was to choose the president who would replace Assad by peaceful means, simply by voting! Who is paying these traitors a salary of $ 400 and giving them weapons to kill, and this time they are robbing their country.

Many countries have their own symbols: the states have a white eagle, our bear is a great symbol, it corresponds to the spirit and character of a Russian person! And from this, he does not turn over in the den, but really suffers from those “animal lovers” who hunt him for fun and, especially, from selfie lovers, like the one on Komchatka who posted a video on the Internet how he moves a young bear to jeep!
