Why is a Christian American housewife turned citizen journalist smiling below a poster of the US government’s “most wanted”? Well, let me try to tell you the heart of the story. If you have the patience to read all this, I’ll leave it for you to decide if I’m a kook or even a traitor to my country, or an honest patriot determined to hold my government accountable for war crimes and deceits including outright treason against the people of the United States.
This essay is just my opinion though it is based on years of research (around 10,000 hours since 2012) as well as months on the ground, traveling around Syria on my own with Syrian friends as translators in seven trips during the war – also weeks spent in Lebanon and Kuwait.
All that aside, I’m an outsider and I don’t speak the language. I hope people of the region and others will share their thoughts. The photo was taken on October 31, 2019 at the Syrian Army checkpoint just outside of Palmyra. Palmyra, the vast remains of an ancient Roman city in the desert, is one of the jewels in the crown of Syria’s many important and spectacular archaeological sites.
It had been captured by the ISIS terrorists twice and liberated twice by the Syrian Army and its allies of Hezbollah, Iran and Russia. For those people believing western propaganda and thinking President Assad keeps “gassing his own people,” actually it has been the headchopping mercenary thugs supported by the US, UK, France, Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar that have been creating those frame jobs in order to get more weapons, money and military support.
One big clue that what I’m saying is the truth is that in the battles for Palmyra there was a perfect opportunity for Syria to use chemical weapons to real advantage. They could have wiped out many ISIS fighters and preserved the precious, ancient site where no civilians were, but they chose to liberate it with conventional warfare which is what they’ve done all around Syria. Many of the most important buildings on the site were deliberately destroyed by ISIS.
The museum was looted as was the site itself. The lead archaeologist who had devoted his life to studying the fabulous ruins was tortured then beheaded by the terrorist horde. Courageously he had helped arrange for many of the treasures to be hidden or removed from the site. Casualty rates on the Syrian and allied forces side were often horrific; the sacrifices of those men won the day however and ISIS was defeated there … and all the while the US, other western governments, and western media were acting like their dog had died. Which in a way was true – it is easily proven how the US and its allies have been helping ISIS and al Qaeda all during the war against Syria.Truth or Treason? An American Housewife in Syria
