Syria 4 Years On: Shocking Images Of A Post-US-Intervention Nation

Tyler Durden's picture

While US intervention in its various forms has likely been ongoing for decades, March 2011 is often cited as the start of foreign involvement in the Syrian Civil War (refering to political, military and operational support to parties involved in the ongoing conflict in Syria, as well as active foreign involvement).

Since then the nation has collapsed into chaos with an endless array of superlatives possible to describe the economic and civilian carnage that has ensued.

However, while a picture can paint a thousand words, these four shocking images describe a canvas of US foreign policy "success" that few in the mainstream media would be willing to expose...

The Hammond Ranch.

I want to add that from the photos it looks as if a number of local environmental laws have been broken.

So I made the mistake of going through the AM stations and briefly heard some neocon bitch raving on the shawn hanity happy hour. According to her dumbass, Iran mistreated the navy seals who were obviously trying to penetrate Iranian sovereign waters. Geez, I wonder why Iran is so fearful of the navy seals slipping in spies and other cia troublemakers? Just look at these fucking pictures morons. This is what happens when you let your guard down to uncle satan.

Now wouldn't it be nice if those special forces were securing the Mexican border instead?

Christ there are too many fucking dumb-shit turds in this world. It's time to flush the toilet.

Because... We're EXCEPTIONAL! (Upon seeing these pictures, Krugman is whacking his dick, that the rabbi bit the tip off of, as we speak).

sad pics...and that shit has happened to so many other countries that were doing well until corrupt scumbags intervened and destroyed their whole civilization.  Look at Iran in the 70's, Germany during the world wars, and Russia when the Czar was murdered, etc. etc. etc.

And the banksters and their political puppets always profit from it and never hang from the gallows.

March 2011

Uranus in last degree of Pisces, moves into Aries.

Neputne returns home to Pisces.

Tsunami, war in Syria.

Now we have the crazed Saudi warmonger taking the throne.

Both in the Bible and Koran the great war is coming.

Damascus in ruin is where Jesus shows up.

Wrong. The one iron-clad consistent fact of US middle-eastern policy since the mid-70s has been to undermine and overthrow secular middle-eastern regimes in favor of Muslim-fundamentalist regimes. Iran, Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Turkey, Kosovo...the only outlier has been Afghanistan, which got caught in the gears of 9/11. But no worries-- the secular regime we installed there in 2003 was a joke, and everything outside a 20-mile radius of Kabul is in the hands of fundamentalists.

"Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran"... funny how that's been "the next thing to do" for almost 15 years, yet oddly we never get around to it. It's almost like it's a misdirection, or smokescreen even, as our onslaught on secular regimes grinds on.

One wonders why we go to all this effort to turn the middle east into a hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism. I suppose one popular theory is The Jooz are engineering it to keep them distracted. While that's certainly possible, Islam is now overrunning Europe (and heading to the US) and virtually no one in power seems to care. Either they are grossly underestimating the Muslim threat-- which is absurd, it is impossible to be that ignorant or stupid-- or, they want Islam to destroy the west.

 They are overruning for your constant intervention in their countries.Who told you to invade syria, libya and iraq ? Now face the consequences for the mistakes your dimwits did. Instead of blaming victims care to correct your drunken Empire of Chaos.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Really? Then why are the "refugees" exclusively Muslim? Syria and Iraq have been homes to substantial Christian minorities. If your theory was correct, you'd think they'd want to get out also...right? Except they aren't.

beemasters's picture

And how exactly do you know for certain they are "exclusively Muslims" again? And so what if they are all Muslims? Islamaphobic, are we? Anyway, those who invaded their countries have been "exclusively Christians". What's the point?

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

We know they are "exclusively Muslim" because THERE AREN'T ANY FUCKING CHRISTIANS AMONG THEM.

Get it?? I feel like I'm talking to an idiot.

logicalman's picture

Most of the people leaving the middle east would likely prefer to stay there, it's just that it seems to start raining explosives as soon as the US shows an interest. If I'd had my home demolished by bombing and it was constantly raining fast moving metal I think I might consider re-locating. I think you might too.


Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Yeah, except that's bullshit. If they were real refugees fleeing war, you'd see a balance of men and women of all ages, and children.

Instead, the "refugee" demographic is 70% young men 18-35, and 30% everything else. So we have the first war zone in the history of the world that women, children, and old men prefer to stay in?

No, it is exactly what it looks like it is: an invasion of young fighting men, whose arms are being smuggled in for use at a later date.

beemasters's picture

Not necessarily. Usually only those most able - usually the young men - would take the arduous journey, hoping that they would make it first before sending for their loved ones to join them at a later stage. Keep an open mind and place yourself in their shoes - though it maybe very hard for people like you.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Here's what I'm trying to keep an open mind about: how you can fit so much stupid into your head.

Ace006's picture

The mosques being used to store weapons and ammo and to preach hatred of the infidel Europeans makes your argument nonsense.  The young men are the advance guard and even now are conducting coordinated campaigns of rape and sexual outrage on European women.  The invaders have been found to be bringing weapons IN to Europe.  This is hijra and over preparation for armed conflict.  Bring their families later my foot.

JustPaper's picture

Most plausible ' conspiracy theory ' is that clearing the region of any sovereign state allows the US to shuffle radicalised Islamic armies around Eurasia at will. Russia's volatile Caucasus region and China's East Turkestan would be the primary destinations of Jihadists when the need arises..

'Either they are grossly underestimating the Muslim threat-- which is absurd, it is impossible to be that ignorant or stupid-- or, they want Islam to destroy the west.'

They are clinically insane and want Islam to destroy the west and ethnically cleanse the indigenous population......

Ace006's picture

That has visceral appeal but there is clear intentionality in what the Treason Class is doing.  Merkel is calm  and methodical and demonstrably capable of taking all steps necessary to keep the borders open, appear to establish controls, and mouth ambiguities about European values.  She has said, "We should not follow those who — with coldness and even hatred in their hearts — make judgments about what it means to be German, and seek to exclude others from this definition[.]"

I see no reality-distorting dementia. Perhaps sociopathy, megalomania, or narcicism. Emotional disorders.

There is however a sick ideology at work, a deliberate attack on one's own to further either an abstraction or naked political self interest. There must be huge sums of money being passed under the table or credible threats.  I say financial reward and the joy of exercising power.
