KATIE HOPKINS: British hypocrisy is rife and rank. Stop the little baby jihad!

It is a fact that Assad is not threatening us. Assad, being an Alewite, a minority in his own country, protected the Syrian minorities that ISIL  (sunni Muslims) enslaves and murders. The regime of Hussein Obama wanted to turn the whole region into a sunni-wahabi dominated  nightmare. The Obama plan failed in Libya, in Egypt and in Tunisia. Ignorant western gov’ts misled by the U.S. support that, which is disastrous as it can lead to a world war between the superpowers.

KATIE HOPKINS: Assad is a monster but all the pictures of dead children in the world won’t change the fact that opposing him has only given us ISIS, chaos and the very real prospect of WW3

Stop with the pictures from Aleppo of small babies buried under rubble. Quit posting tiny faces, punctuated by shrapnel. No more images of crying children, made grey by the debris of what used to be their house. (Most of these pictures are doctored. They are using dust as makeup in another form of Pallywood.)
Not because I am afraid of the truth of war. I am old enough and ugly enough to know war is not polite or pretty.
I don’t want to see these pictures from Aleppo because they tell half a tale, lies, just as much of the coverage of the Israeli – Gaza conflict….

Enough now.

Stop with the pictures from Aleppo of small babies buried under rubble. Quit posting tiny faces, punctuated by shrapnel. No more images of crying children, made grey by the debris of what used to be their house.

Not because I am afraid of the truth of war. I am old enough and ugly enough to know war is not polite or pretty.

I don’t want to see these pictures from Aleppo because they tell half a tale, just as much of the coverage of the Israeli – Gaza conflict in 2014 only told one side of the story.

Emergency teams at work in Aleppo this week: Since the conflict erupted with anti-government protests in 2011, 300,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict

During Operation Strong Edge to stop rocket fire from Gaza into Israel, we were fed a consistent diet of pictures of children being hurt in by Israeli bombs in Palestine. Children hurt in schools. Children bombed in hospitals.

No mention of the fact Hamas were launching rockets from the roofs of these buildings using kids as human shield.

Just as in Palestine, it is bonkers to imagine we can’t imagine another side to the Syrian conflict too. Do you imagine children aren’t being hurt by the rebel forces? By ISIS insurgents?

Do you not sit and question why mothers have not used a recent week long ceasefire to get their children out of harm’s way?

Iran Expert: Tehran Fears it Could be ‘Big Loser’ From Trump Victory

Why would you need an “Iran expert” to know that the mad mullahs are getting hot under their turbans when there is a new guy with fingers on the trigger who will stop the jiziya and smoke them if they get fresh?

The Islamo-Marxist convergence. You might think rabid nihilists teaming up with religious fanatics doesn’t make sense, but they’ve been doing it for a long time and they’re getting good at it.

All of them savages & barbarians. We shouldn’t support any of them.

For perverse reasons their parents choose to stay; some because this is their city and they refuse to leave. Others because 6 years of war and destruction is too terrible to walk away from, their relative died here. Some say they refuse to return to Assad rule. Undoubtedly many fear retaliation from ISIS militants fighting there too.

All choices. No matter how impossible the options seem.

I do understand the narrative. We are supposed to buy into the idea Assad is a monster. Telling journalists with a smile he is able to do exercise and sleep at night despite children dying on his watch.

And to some extent, I do.

Assad: There is no doubt, Assad is thuggish and brutal. But no matter how repulsive the Assad regime may be, the alternative is far worse

I remember turning off the TV when images of a Sarin Gas attack on Ghouta were beamed around the world. The UNHRC commission indicated that the perpetrators likely had access to chemicals from the Syrian Army’s stockpile – Assad’s stockpile.

There is no doubt, Assad is thuggish and brutal.

But no matter how repulsive the Assad regime may be, the alternative is far worse.

ISIS. They have committed genocide of the poor Yazidis, created the biggest threat to the security of Europe since WW2 and delivered a nightmare for the people of Syria.

Under Assad, Syria was secular nation, where different religions lived side by side. Even Obama recognised Assad protected Syrian Christians, enabling them to live in peace. Women could drive and had a vote.

Compare this to Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, where ISIS have set about subjugating and terrorising its one million inhabitants in a manner not seen since the Nazi occupation of Europe. Opponents have been subjected to torture and mass executions, and minority sects, such as Christians, persecuted.

Since the conflict erupted with anti-government protests in 2011, 300,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict.

And the west has singularly failed to find a solution.

The US financed the opposition party in Syria to take control. In failing to do so – ISIS attacked.

The British have singularly failed to act apart from endless propaganda that Assad is evil. Ignoring the fact we have failed to differentiate between rebels and terrorists such as the al-Qaida-linked Fatah Sham Front.

Years of pathetic foreign policy decisions by Blairites, the Clinton’s and the Obama administration delivered the birth of ISIS and made Iran a super power in the Middle East. And the best we can do is weep over pictures of dead children.

And still we refuse to take action, unless you count bumbling Boris Johnson, advising British people to wave a few placards about outside the Russian Embassy, the very country which has delivered definitive action sending an aircraft carrier and complement of MiG-29K/KUB jets and helicopters to carry out airstrikes.

The British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft flounced out of a special security meeting outraged no one was willing to call Assad evil.

‘After five years of conflict, you might think that the regime has had its fill of barbarity – that its sick bloodlust against its own people has finally run its course. But this weekend, the regime and Russia have instead plunged to new depths and unleashed a new hell on Aleppo.’

This British hypocrisy is rife and rank.

We are supposed to condemn Russia and Assad as evil. Gasp in horror at the pictures of bloodied children. Watch White Helmets dragging limp corpses from the rubble of homes.

But simultaneously applaud the three week campaign to retake Mosul from IS. Of course, I am cheering them every step of the way.

But do we really believe the artillery bombs, shells and grenades of the 100,000 soldiers joined in an assault to recapture Mosul fall like kittens from the sky? Targeted to avoid old women and children.

Do we really think the pictures of liberated civilians weeping for joy are not also countered by the bodies of their young, buried beneath the rubble in the city they fled from with their lives? Do we really imagine children are not dying in Mosul too?

War is a dirty thing. But unless we are prepared to recognise our allies and work against the real enemy – ISIS – we are swiftly headed to WW3.

Clinton will take us there. She has advocated arming Islamist rebels against the Syrian regime. As Trump rightly says;

‘She wants to fight for rebels. There’s only one problem. She doesn’t even know who the rebels are. So what’s the purpose? I don’t like Assad at all, but Assad is killing ISIS. Russia is killing ISIS. And Iran is killing ISIS. And those three have now lined up because of our weak foreign policy.’

Aleppo will fall. The sooner it is over the better.

Trump will be a good friend to have in America.

And in the Middle East, we need to choose our enemies more wisely.
