'Hizbullah' (hezbollah) should already be on the shoot on sight list as heretic mujadeen fit only for hog food. Iran should again be punished for illegal instigation of violence by an illegal excuse for a government (Iran has had no legitimate government since the Shah stepped down). Sink the Iranian navy and exterminate the Ahmadinejad junta.

Fred Krohn must be an apologist for the Zionist Entity. He wishes to plunge, as the Entity does, the world into WW3.

No, really! Considering that Hezbollah are a large political force in Syria and have control over large regions and has done for years, it is really observant of Cameron to finally notice!

Cameron's comments are absurdly late, but welcome. This is one of the few statements from Europe concerning the Syrian massacre.

What massacre? Do you mean the massacre of 2500 Syrian security personnel by "unarmed" protesters? Only today a high up in the Syrian army had his car blown up and lost both legs. Does this sound like democracy seekers... or al-Qaida?

I am not surprised that Britain is supporting the propaganda machine of the U.S. I wish Care2 would stop posting these obviously biased articles.

George Marshall.

You are correct. And the frightening thing is that the propaganda is working. Most people coming on these trheads agree with these tendentious articles. They think Assad is an ogre and that he is masscring unarmed people for nothing, just out of wickedness.

In fact, he is facing an armed insurrection, directed and financed from the outside, that is aimed at the destruction of his country to the benefit of the Zionist Entity and the comming war on Iran.

I am outraged that Care2 allows itself to be used as a bully pulpit for the UK. David Cameron has his own agenda and this site should be reserved for environmental and social issues, but not politics that don't match the words spoken by British politicians. I prefer to get unbiased news from VOA and other sources that don't spread propaganda. Shame on you, Care2.

Gillian Miller says:--

"No, really! Considering that Hezbollah are a large political force in Syria and have control over large regions and has done for years,"

Is she off her trolley? Hezbollah is a Lebanese nationalist movement and political party.

"Hezbollah - or the Party of God - is a powerful political and military organisation in Lebanon made up mainly of Shia Muslims."

> Most people coming on these threads agree with these tendentious articles. They think Assad is an ogre and that he is massacring unarmed people for nothing, just out of wickedness.

-- John Duqesa

Some people have begun to notice that the U.S. reputation has been tarnished by Iraq -- where Clinton's sanctions killed a million and Bush's war-making killed a million more. To make amends, and restore our reputation, we want to show our Idealistic Humanitarian side -- by supporting Humanitarian Wars. This time, we will do things right: We will use Humanitarian Bombs and Humanitarian Missiles, just like in 1999, when we brought the KLA narco-terrorists to power in Kosovo.

Independent polls show that 55% of Syrians continue to back Assad. Of course, these Syrians have no voice in our media, because they don't fit in with our destabilization plan. The only Syrians we're allowed to hear about are the ones who have Al Qaeda backing -- the "Peaceful Demonsytrators" who reject the National Dialogue and seek the overthrow of the government, no matter the cost in lives.

We're getting all of our information from the rebels -- including our information about casualty counts.

The Arab League, dominated by the feudal monarchies in the Gulf, sent monitors, hoping that the monitors would expose Assad and contribute to his downfall. The plan backfired. Like the inspectors in Iraq in 2003, the monitors failed to see what they were supposed to see. Much of the violence featured in the rebel news reports suddenly ceased to exist.

One would think that "Peaceful Demonstrators" would welcome such a cessation or reduction in the level of violence. But no, just the opposite: They denounced the monitors and called for the monitors to leave.

Al Jazeera, which has played, I should say, an equivocal role in the so-called Arab Spring, at least once had the grace to report that it had received a communique from the rebels saying there had been a massacre in an outlying suburb of Damascus. Unfortunately for the rebels, the station had, by chance, an undercover news team right at the spot the alleged massacre had taken place. What did that team find? Nothing. Just people going about their business.

I'm not advocating WW3, just removing the mujadeen instigators from teh general Arabic population, and Iran's illegal junta doesn't qualify as a government. My detractors must be supporters of pseudo-Islamic mujadeen frauds and murderers, and of illegal governments like those of Iran, mainland China, Vietnam, or Cuba.

How complex we humans create such sadness, misery and despair. Things need not be this way. Humans create their individual map of reality based on values and beliefs downloaded, so to speak by well meaning adults (or not), at an early age and as time rolls on, we incorporate those values and beliefs and our brilliant mind filters all external stimuli which "agrees" with those values and beliefs. To Reuters, Israeli forces, Palestine? Terrorists... I don't intend to delve into right and wrong as it is all perception, which side of the situation you are on... someone once explained the difference between Great Depression vs. 'Great Recession' as "do you have a job? if yes, it is a Recession, if not, then it is a Great Depression lol! Over the years I have personally found that the more I learned, the less I "know"... Good luck humanity (and thanks for all the fish :o)
Hope you are well my dear friend Cal :o)

Hello Fred Krohn --

Syria's government is SECULAR. The rebels -- the guys you seem to be supporting -- are Islamists.

Iraq's government under Saddam was also SECULAR. Iraq was one of the few places in the Middle East where Al Qaeda was unable to get a foothold.

You destroyed the secular regime in Iraq and turned Iraq into an Islamic state. Iraqi women, who once sported European fashions, now hide inside a burka when they go out in public -- if they go out at all. Thanks, Fred.

> Nothing can be giving bin Laden greater pleasure than the spectacle of the West going to war to topple his hated foe, the "atheist Satan", Saddam Hussein. Even in his wildest dreams, he cannot have imagined what has now come to pass, Saddam about to go and Islam radicalised against the West.

-- Simon Jenkins, "Bin Laden's laughter echoes across the West", *London Times*, 19 Mar 2003

Now that another million Iraqis have been killed, Iraq has become a vast new breeding ground for terror. This is what Bush calls a "catastrophic success".

You've done this again and again! In Kosovo, in 1999, you smashed a multi-ethnic state and installed the KLA, a gang of Islamic narco-terrorists hell-bent on making Kosovo a mono-ethnic part of Greater Albania. In Libya, recently, you overthrew Gadafi and brought Islamic radicals to power.

In Iran, your support for the Shah's tyranny led to the rise of Khomeini. That's because the Shah decimated all other opposition forces -- Islam was the only opposition left standing. Now that Iran's revolutionary zeal has waned, you want to do it all over again!

Did you know that Iran has actually been seeking better relations with the U.S., since 1995? These efforts have been blocked by AIPAC. Why? Because Israel wants to keep its stranglehold on the U.S., and it believes that the Islamists are easier to discredit than the secularists.

It turns out that we ourselves created the Islamists -- and now we use them as a foil whenever the government wants to scare us into giving up our liberty.

"where Clinton's sanctions killed a million"

And wicked those sanctions were. Here's Albright defending the mass murder of 500,000 Iraqi children on CBS

I remember taking a ferry from Nuweiba to Aqaba on my way, ultimately, to Syria during the sanctions and being held up for 6 hours outside the port in the searing heat so that the ferry could be checked for "illegal" goods destined for Iraq. At least we 1st class passengers could retreat to the comfort of the air-conditioned lounge, but why the poorer people baking in 50 degrees didn't riot from resentment, I do not know.

You have beaten me to it - and answered Fred Krohn more eloquently than I could've. Next time, I shan't waste time relating personal anecdotes!

I found the anecdote interesting, John. Thanks for posting it.

Have you seen this, yet: "U.S. Newspaper Editor Suggests Israel Assassinate Obama". Where are the Obama supporters? Too busy trying to overthrow Assad, I suppose.

Thank you Cal. This thread helps us see the hypocrisy of Britian! Why don't Britian
Scream out at the American Government for giving support to the
'Tyrant' Zionist Israeli Regime? Not only do they enable but supply weapons and
financial aid, but make war on innocent civilians of other countries and
countries ,in obedience to the Zionist's Evill Requests!

These reports are nothing but the modus operandi of America and its Allies;
getting their people ready for the impending war on Iran, their 'Bogeyman'!

Wake up americans and british people; your governments are lying
Left right and centre to you, to justify their wicked wars of the death
of millions of innocent people. This is their ploy to make you agreeable
And consenting to their 'tyrannical and evil wars'; not that YOUR
Consent matters to them! They are going to just go ahead and MURDER
Innocent human beings(children too), so I don't understand 'WHY' they keep promoting
such stories, especially when many of their own people have caught up with their lies and false flags!

Shame Britian Government!!

Shame American Government!!

Shame All Its ALLIES!!

Shame Zionist Israeli Regime!!

Shame All The Ignorant People Who Still Believe Them!!

Yes Elizabeth Goldstone. Hezbollah was formed in Lebanon as a direct result of Zionist Entity aggression and occupation of that country. And they forced the rabble of the IDF out and later defeated them in the Entity's war of aggression. In addition to being a militia, they are a social services provider and a political party. I am glad that they are there to keep Lebanon safe.
