Six Years Of War, Death And Destruction: Syrians Speak Out

Today marks the 6th anniversary of an imposed war and invasion on what was one of the safest countries in the world prior to 2011. A country with a rich history that dates back to 9000 BC. Syria is the Cradle of Civilization. Damascus is nicknamed The City of Jasmine where the flower can be seen hugging buildings, churches, mosques, and homes, filling the enchanting streets with an intoxicating sweet smell.

    Today marks the 6th anniversary of an imposed war and invasion on what was one of the safest countries in the world prior to 2011. A country with a rich history that dates back to 9000 BC. Syria is the Cradle of Civilization. Damascus is nicknamed The City of Jasmine where the flower can be seen hugging buildings, churches, mosques, and homes, filling the enchanting streets with an intoxicating sweet smell.

    Mark Twain in 1867 wrote about Damascus: “She measures time not by days and months and years, but by the empires she has seen rise and prosper and crumble into ruin. She is a type of immortality. She saw the foundations of Baalbek and Thebes and Ephesus laid; she saw these villages grow into mighty cities and amaze the world with their grandeur – and she has lived to see them desolate, deserted, and given over to the owls and the bats. She saw the Israelitish empire exalted, and she saw it annihilated. She saw Greece rise and flourish two thousand years and die. In her old age she saw Rome built; she saw it overshadow the world with its power; she saw it perish. The few hundreds of years of Genoese and Venetian might and splendour were, to grave old Damascus, only a trifling and scintillation hardly worth remembering. Damascus has seen all that has ever occurred on earth, and still she lives. She has looked upon the dry bones of a thousand empires, and will see the tombs of a thousand more before she dies.” Read more here.

    Syrians in Syria feel that their voices have been silenced and buried under a mountain of propaganda and lies in mainstream and social media during this six year war. There exists a very well funded, highly manipulative, propaganda media campaign that has incessantly twisted the truth. This dishonest reporting has had a direct impact on the death and destruction that’s occurred in Syria the past 6 years.


    Advertisment

    In Part one of our “Syrians Speak Out” series we will look at the messages that Syrians in Syria have made today on the 6th anniversary of the war on social media sites.

    “The Moderate rebels are celebrating the 6th anniversary of their peaceful revolution by committing two suicidal attacks in the most crowded areas in Damascus killing so far 40 martyrs and 81 wounded. Bloody anniversary “moderate shit””

    Updated-Two terrorist suicide bombings hit old Justice Palace and a restaurant in Damascus, leaving casualties

    Damascus, SANA – Two terrorist attacks took place at the old Justice Palace building in Damascus city and in a restaurant on its outskirts, leaving casualties.

    “Deadly bombing on the anniversary of the failed “Syrian Revolution”. Women and children screaming in the streets trying to get as far as they can before they’re taken by the second one.  Thank you for observing this damned day the only way you know how to, reminding us all why all the NATO funding, Amnesty fabricating and BBC dubbing wasn’t enough to make you win.”

    – Reme Sakr via Facebook

    It’s incredible to see that regardless of all of the death and destruction that has become part of Syrian’s daily lives for the past six years, that they still have hope and haven’t given up. It’s almost as if these unbelievably traumatic circumstances that were brought on them by foreign entities have made them even more determined to live an enriched life. It’s inspirational and almost hard to fathom but in many conversations that I have had with Syrians you can hear it in their tone, when they say Inshallah (God willing) or Alhamdillah (Thank God) they truly believe that they will not only get through this but will rebuild and have an even stronger country than before.

    “To all my non-arabic speaking friends, I wish you watch this video, it shows the before and after Syria, you might not like the music but we can’t help not to look back to where we were and where we are now, besides it is one story you will see VS all the msm false stories”.

        The invasion and bombing has nothing to do with Assad: It’s just Russia and the US making up an excuse to take over and fight over Syria’s oil and other valuable resources … killing millions of innocent people in the process.
        Just like Iraq.

        • James Wherry

          That’s what the Dishonest People in America and Europe’s peace movement said about Iraq – yet here we ar, with no significant American oil presence in Iraq.

          We made the world a safer place for Chines and Dutch oil exploration. As to the Ruskies, some of my family works for Russian oil exploration – they are Swiss. Like many things, the Russians “hire it done.”

        • Susan M.

          It’s not quite right to say that it’s a battle taking place between the USA and Russia. It’s a battle of Saudi Arabia + USA against Syria, and the Syrians asked Russia, their ally, for help. In this case, we are the bad guys and Russia is the good guy.

          Not really the brightest comment. Russia ONLY entered the war at the request of Syria……….AFTER Saudi Arabian controlled mercenaries attacked Syria and were supported by US TAX DOLLARS, the Jewish state and Saudis.

          Russia has some of the largest oil reserves on Earth. The little oil in Syria means almost nothing by comparison. But, Syria (along with EVERY country whose economy is not controlled by the Jewish Rothschild predatory banking cartel) is being attacked………..USING YOUR TAX $$$.

          The invasion and bombing, the killing and destruction is an american specialty, and the history is a witness.
          We invited Russia to help us against ISIS which is created by US and supported by Israel

      • James Wherry

        So why is it that all the Sun’nis are fleeing Homs?

        I mean, what could possibly go wrong with Assad back in charge?

        • Lie_Buster

          Cut the b.s. “all” Sunnis in Homs are not fleeing anywhere. Now, if you said IS fighters are fleeing Homs, you might be closer to the truth.

        • bootin buddin

          tapatio and all these assad supporters need to get a clue. we are not zionists. if they any syrians left they better get used to no assad mucking up things there. country destroyed because of him pure and simple. no one will ever rebuild it. we may have hired a couple of terrorists groups to get rid of him but it didn’t go well. that doesn’t make us responsible for isil/isis being formed. far from it. we will eliminate them and then on the assad who will end up like the saddam hussein family ended up.

          • TeeJae

            If you’re not a zionist, what are you? And why are you so against Asaad? What did he ever do to you?

            • bootin buddin

              nothing. but his minions forced people to vote for him or be beheaded. slaughtered more than a couple of anti assad rebels for just being against him. dictator tyrant bully all wrapped into one despicable person. hides behind putin’s skirt. regime change will happen count on it. not sure about the definition of a zionist. must look into that.

            • tapatio

              I think that this “bootin buddin” is one of the pseudo-Christian Zionist scum. His/its comments are right out of the lowest part of Faux NoNews, Breitbart, etc. He/it sounds like he/it was once an acolyte of Glenn Beck.

              You know what Gandhi said about Christians (at least the US/UK variety)……….

              “I like your Christ,
              I do not like your Christians.
              Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”
              Mahatma Gandhi

          • James Wherry

            Amen. I am a Christian and I support the right if th existence of th nation of Israel and the nation of Palestine, but no: few Syrians can be said to support Israel, at least under present conditions.

            I think I should explain about “tapatio,” however: he is an anonymous poster on this website who does not simply hate Zionism or Israel. He really and truly hates “JEWS.” He has called them a “threat to humanity.” He likes to post things like “Jews don’t protest: they lie, cheat, steal, murder and corrupt.”

            He has praised Adolph Hitler and the NAZ! Party of WWII Germany for the Holocaust as “an act of self-defense by non-Jews.” In short, he really is a NAZ!

            The ONLY reason he pretends to care for the Palestinians or supports Syria or Iran is b cause “tapatio” hopes they will finally destroy Israel. The existence of Israel is merely an unnecessary impediment to his hopes to kill all Jews. That’s all. Don’t take it personally. . .

            US aggressors need to stay home, stay out of other people’s business. It’s just a fake war-for-profit to steal other countries’ resources for the benefit of a few ruling billionaires.

            US citizens have been tricked into paying for the wars-for-profit, ‘regime change’ operations, to put money in billionaires’ pockets.

            Ask your veterans. They know what Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria are about. And some will tell the truth.

        • tapatio

          BEFORE BEING ATTACKED BY PROXY MERCENARIES OF THE OUTLAW JUDEO-NAZl DISEASE CALLED ZIONISM, SYRIA WAS ONE OF THE MOST LIBERAL AND PROSPEROUS COUNTRIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST. I VISITED THERE ONCE AND ATTENDED A CATHOLIC MASS AND ANOTHER CHRISTIAN CHURCH SERVICE. THERE WERE ALSO JEWISH SYNAGOGUES OPERATING OPENLY.

          BELOW IS PROOF THAT THE TERRORIST ATTACK ON SYRIA WAS ORCHESTRATED BY JEWS AND PAID FOR BY AMERICAN TAXPAYER DOLLARS…………….

          AS SUBORDINATES OF THE ROTHSCHILD-BILDERBERG EMPIRE, WASHINGTON, ISRAEL AND SAUDI ARABIA BUILT AND OPERATE AL QAEDA, ISIS AND THE OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS OPERATING IN SYRIA (and elsewhere) TO DESTABILIZE COUNTRIES AND ESTABLISH A “CALIPHATE” THAT WOULD “COOPERATE” WITH THE EMPIRE.

          LIKE THE TERRORIST GROUPS THEMSELVES, THAT CALIPHATE WOULD BE JUST AS OPPRESSIVE AND VICIOUS AS ITS PARENT (established by Jewish/British bankers, 100 years ago) – SAUDI ARABIA. SAUDI ARABIA AND THE TERROR GROUPS SPAWNED THEY ARE THE GUTTER SCRAPINGS OF ISLAM – EQUAL IN ALL RESPECTS TO THE ZIONIST DISEASE.
          The Rothschilds created Zionism, the Saudi “royals” and the Bolshevik “Revolution” as vehicles to expand its power. Bolshevism (Communism) failed. Zionism (Judeo-Fascism) has, so far, partially succeeded.
