So we heard you decided to change your plans in Syria and this time even arm the “moderate rebels” with more and more advanced weapons to fight the ISIS/ISIL. So who are you fooling? You may fool your people who you force them to watch what YOU and your government want on your news channels and hide the truth. Did you tell your people that on Syrian Channels those harsh killings of ISIS and your “moderate rebels” how they chop of heads and open up pregnant women’s bellies have been there since 2 and a half years ago and it is not a new thing? Or did you leave those terrorists become stronger and kill more and more of our civilians and army so that you will come to play the Hero after all that time? Where were you when your UN representative refused to listen and got out of the UN meeting when the Syrian representative was giving proofs of terrorist attacks on primary schools where more than 65 children died at the same day. Where were you when they attacked a neighborhood called Adra just because they are pro government and burned woman and children in the neighborhood’s bakery and chopped the heads of the men and put them instead of street lightbulbs? Oh your moderate rebels didn’t tell you they did that? Because it was them who did all those not the ISIS? and now you are going to arm them even more? They are already blowing up cars, attacking schools, raping women, killing automatically anyone who is a minority sect, stealing houses and firing rockets at civil areas…What else would you want them to do? Fight ISIS? how are they any different? The only reason they are fighting each other is to decide who gains control of the oil fields so they will sell it to your “terrorist supporting and funding” government.
You created the ISIS to destroy Syria, to decide who is going to be our next president to destroy our army but after 3 years your plan failed ! You needed a plan B to interfere in my country and that is to come as a hero and fight ISIS. Well maybe then you should arm the Syrian Army who have been fighting them from day one not rebels who were part of ISIS but then fought over who kills more and each called themselves a different name. FSA,Nusra, Islamic Army, ISIS where all armed gangs in the beginning you helped them grow into all these monsters. They are made of 105 nationalities so how is that good to Syria and Syrians Mr Obama? You know they are not tourists right?
Your new plan to arm those gangs to fight each other and to remove as you said the president who regardless who he is…he is still the commander of the Syrian Army. So you are going to leave Syria with sectarian gangs and remove the army? No Sir you won’t succeed. WE ARE FREE PEOPLE. WE DECIDE WHO RULES US. WHO FIGHTS FOR US. WHO IS OUR ENEMY AND WHO IS NOT. WE DECIDE !!! You don’t get to decide anything for us. Get your stupid planes and plans out of our country. Get your armed terrorists gangs out of our country and this war will simply end. Stop making plans because the only thing they caused is Death. So whatever your plan for us is PLEASE know we won’t surrender easily. You will have to kill even more and more of us for it to work.
I am a free woman who won’t be forced to wear a certain way. I am a free woman who refuse to be seen as a sex symbol. Who refuse to be raped by those monsters. Who refuse to be forced to stay at home, not get educated or go to school. Who refuse to be forced to get married at the age of 10. Who refuse to be forced to get married to a man (I don’t know from what country he came or what language he speaks) who they choose for her. I refused to be a woman who is either killed because she is christian or Alawites or jew or converts to whatever sect they choose for her. I am a woman who refuse to be priced and sold! Because that is what those “moderate rebels” together with their “fake” enemy the ISIS are doing in the areas they get control of!!!
I would rather live with a secular dictator, stay at my job and marry or date the man I love. Thank you for your fake freedom and democracy because well I can’t see it with your rebels!
Although the fears never came to pass, the use of chemical weapons by Iraq during the Iran-Iraq War gave coalition forces great concern as they prepared for the liberation of Kuwait. Soldiers were issued full-body NBC (Nuclear-Biological-Chemical) suits, and regularly trained in their use. As it turned out, Iraq never utilized their chemical weapon stores during the Gulf War.
“About two-and-a-half weeks ago I was in a fight, and I was hit by a mortar and took injuries to my left forearm and my left foot,” says Matson, speaking from a military base in Derik. Matson makes no bones about why he’s there: “After watching this happen for almost two years now — ISIS growing and getting bigger — every time they take a territory, they force people to follow their ideology or they kill them. And I just couldn’t stand by and watch that happen to so many people — men, women and children.” Matson says he was tired of hearing the US government saying the wars in Iraq and Syria were local problems. "It’s a human problem,” he says, “because these people are humans and I care about them.” The issue came to a head for Matson after journalist James Foley was beheaded by ISIS. "I prayed for a long time and started looking for an avenue to come over and help defend them,” he says. "I found the YPG on Facebook and I asked if I could come over.”
He had an incredible welcome from Kurdish people and Kurdish Fighters, he says. “I’ve had nothing but love. These guys are looking for any help they can get. They’ve modelled themselves after a social democracy on the European pattern. They’ve always been supportive of Americans during our time in this region. So when an American came over, I’ve been treated like a celebrity.“ He also praises Kurdish community values. “Everyone treats everyone else as an aunt or uncle,” he says. “When I was in the hospital, after I was injured, families that had no relatives that were injured or even in the military would just come in and see how everyone was doing. And if they were well enough to leave, they would ask them ‘Do you want to come to my house and stay there while you’re recuperating?’ That’s the kind of culture it is over here.”

Look at these men, these are the men that have been defending Syria for the past 26 months. That their lifestyle, that’s how they eat, and live everyday while their lives are threatened so every Syrian can live peacefully.
God bless the bravest most patriotic men on the face of this earth, the Syrian Arab Army that promised to protect this country with all they got.
May god protect our soldiers and be with them in ever moment.
