Fuck Both Sides of Syria

As reported this week by The Huffington Post,

Gruesome footage of a Syrian rebel commander cutting the heart out of a soldier and biting into it has emerged online.

According to Human Rights Watch, the clip shows Abu Sakkar, a founder of the rebel Omar al-Farouq Brigade carrying out the bloody act.

He says: “I swear to God we will eat your hearts and your livers, you soldiers of Bashar the dog,” to offscreen cheering.

You know, a large part of me is really not surprised by this. Sure, war is violent, but man, those Syrians are a whole other level. In fact, truly nothing in that part of the world surprises me anymore.

This is by far not the first time reports of unbelievable acts of cold blooded murder and other war crimes have surfaced from Syria.

Here is another absolutely abhorrent, graphic video of Assad soldiers slowly stabbing two prisoners to death. I really don’t recommend you watch it, but hey, I did and I survived:

Sure, they’re on the side of Assad, but whatever. They’ve all had the same upbringing.

The website LiveLeak is just overrun with such videos, and for that, I say thank God for LiveLeak, for it is one of the few last bastions of true un-censorship, betraying the truth about what goes on in the world outside of your G-rated, sugar coated tabloid “newspaper” sites.

Then you have Intentious, here to say what no other news blogging site has the balls to say on the matter.

Human Rights Watch’s Peter Bouckaert told Reuters news agency following the act:

“The mutilation of the bodies of enemies is a war crime. But the even more serious issue is the very rapid descent into sectarian rhetoric and violence.” 

He went on to say that those committing war crimes on either side had to know that there was no impunity and that they would be brought to account.

You can watch the inhuman heart-eating act here (click on the picture):

Honestly, rebel Syrians… why do you expect the world to have pity on those being oppressed by Assad when you’re demonstrably an equally savage people?

Both sides are clearly full of barbaric scum that the rest of the world wants no part in. Even Turkey’s prime minister has vowed that his country won’t be drawn into Syria’s civil war, and I can fully agree with him.

I could not care less if this guy and everyone who supports him, dies… and I feel like I speak for a god damn lot of people.

The rest of us have had enough waiting for civility to catch on outside our own countries.

    Kudos, Mr. Beato. We express ourselves differently, but in broad terms, I couldn’t agree With you more.

    Yes, whenever the media decide to censor they are taking a side. Sometimes they sensor only one side so they’re manipulating the population to want to interfere in the internal affairs of another country and culture OR they censor of the horrific acts of depravity and create the illusion of the noble savage or the good war.

    War is Hell people, and these people are barbarians. We have no business getting involved in their country. Just let them kill and mutilate each other how they see fit and instead we should simply focus on our own countries and what matters to us.

    The worst part of this is that it taints all non-violent people from the middle east who know this is totally wrong – it might be hard to believe but there are some good ones – the sadists may get on top in a macho culture – unfortunately, they rule through this type of fear & intimidation. Hopefully, we don’t give up on the belief that yes their are still good people to be found and save from despicable inhumanity and savagery – we can’t just give up on trying to find civilized people who know this is totally wrong, not to mention children who have no voice either.

      Thank you for speaking up. Your words are encouraging.

    My, we have short memories don’t we? Anyone remember Abu Ghraib? That was some pretty messed up and savage stuff! And Wikileaks exposing the execution of unarmed civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan by US forces, the ongoing incarceration of those -who have not been tried – in Guantanamo Bay, the question marks around the Benghazi operation and the list goes on through countless Western interventions and atrocities in third world countries, Viet Nam, Congo, Nicaragua etc etc etc… pot, meet kettle.

    C’mon, Stu, can’t you ever give just a little? Detaining Muslims, scaring them with dogs, and forcing them to listen to loud rock music, or for that matter, even killing an unarmed civilian during war, is not the same level of depravity as killing someone, cutting out their heart, and gnawing on it in front of video cameras and a large crowd of witnesses cheering “God is Great!” Geez, even Jeffery Dahmer was ashamed enough of his cannibalism to hide it.

    Mr. Beato could have written about anything — the price of frog legs in Bangladesh, snowfall in Alberta, or the Hapsburg nose showing up in Fiji — and you would have somehow brought it around to the evils of the United States and its minions.

    Nevermind that the United States has saved the Western world twice in the last century, and gives more humanitarian aid, publicly and privately, than many other countries combined. Nevermind that we’re the only country that actually pays to rebuild its own enemies’ infrastructures, and then hands over to them, often to our own future detriment. Phillippines, anyone? Germany? Japan? Iraq?

    Hell, the United States is giving $100 million of humanitarian aid right now to Syria, whose government would nuke us if they could reach us, and will probably use some of that money to fund terrorism. When’s the last time Syria did anything for anybody, apart from providing equipment for suicide bombers?

    The difference is, when the United States does something horrible, or sometimes just juvenile, and the facts become incontrovertible public knowledge, we’re ashamed of it, and we spend the next generation, or five, apologizing and paying for it, much like Germany has done with the Holocaust.

    When will Syrian rebels denounce this act? How long will they celebrate it? How soon will it be forgotten?

    A lot sooner than it’ll take you to forget Abu Ghraib, I’ll bet.

    But I’ll tell you what: you take a trip to the U.S.A. and discuss loudly and publicly, to your heart’s content, all of your personal and political convictions, and then touch down in Syria and do the same.

    Before you leave Syria, if you ever do, you’ll understand Mr. Beato’s point.

    you forgot electrocution – my argument is that no side can claim the moral high ground, everyone does messed up stuff, whether it is syrian or americans.

    i’m not anti us, the us does a lot of good for the world, for example i’m sure they will resettle many syrian refugees after the war, but they also mess the world up a lot too, and for their own interests, not only saving the western world.

    we should be ashamed when our governments do something horrible, however an event like the holocaust should never be forgotten, though i will concede sometimes the shame factor carries on too long in some circumstances – there you go i am reasonable ;)

    So you are. That of you I did forget. My apologies.

    But I think when we go there, where you suggested, we convolute the nuances of judgment between condemnation and discernment. Both have a time and place.

    “We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” But that doesn’t mean that because a juror got a drunken 19-year-old coed pregnant in college that he can’t decide guilt or innocence in a rape case. It just means he should decide humbly, as an issue of public order, not because he thinks he’s so much better because, after all, the drunk coed consented.

    That said, I, too, am weary of American foreign policy since WWII ended. I believe overall, the U.S. has overstepped and overreached, draining its resolve and squandering its reputation, for unwarranted influence and a few silver coins, adding insult to injury among many we purported to be helping. We have ignored too many freedom fighters and appeased too many tyrants to be fully trusted anymore. In our best moments, we will still be suspect. You can’t hold out the olive branch with fresh blood on your hands and expect it to be taken at face value.

    Honestly, I doubt we’ll ever get all of that reputation back, whichever direction the wind blows, because the political parties here in the U.S. are just a distraction to keep the masses off track. The globalists own the house, and for them, conflict is just another tool in their belt.

    That, too, is something of which we, American citizens, should be ashamed, because in terms of will and the ability to execute it, we really were the last best hope for freedom around the world.

    Feed hatred and you will see normal people turning into monsters. It’s nearly impossible to make two opponents like each other but at least we can stop brewing hatred and segmenting the world into civilized and non-civilized. Civil War exists in most countries at some level, Syria went that far maybe because nobody intertwined. Leaving them on their own is like leaving the ecosystem to rot in one part of the world and believing that we will never be affected.
