Tim Kirby Offensive(GRA-3)


The pretext for all of NATO's actions throughout the world is democracy, freedom or some other cute buzzword. Going around the world shoving your culture’s ideology down everyone else’s throat on a liberal crusade is bad enough but fighting this crusade in an openly hypocritical way is another thing entirely.

Syria has become the trendy “humanitarian crisis” of 2012. This is a story we’ve heard many times before; Iraq, Libya, Serbia. Some group of people somewhere is under the yolk of brutal tyranny so they need to be saved by being murdered by NATO bombs.

But let’s play a bit of a game. Let’s assume for the sake of argument that all the allegations of NATO are true and because Assad is a “bad guy” the West has the right to invade or fight him via proxy forces killing the population until they are free.

Then why is Syria so alone in the crosshairs when many of its neighbors are far from shining examples of democracy?

Luckily I recently had to do a bit of research on the lovely Island of Bahrain where they round people up for “Tweeting” about the King yes, arrests for what you say on stupid Twitter. The King, a MONARCH, has recently banned protests and demonstrations of any sort and arrested opposition leaders, if this happened in certain countries there would be media outrage but since Bahrain bribes CNN everything gets smoothed over. Since 2011 they also have a curfew as in you can’t go out of your house at night if they don’t want you to.
