[ Editor’s Note:  This came in Arabic and Gordon had to drop what he was doing on a late Saturday afternoon to put a crew to get this translated and published.

This is a passionate letter from a man who loves his country and put into words better that we could the concerns many have about why the resupplying of the Syrian insurgents was allowed to go on during the ceasefire to put them in the position to launch counter offenses after so much had been done to put them on the defensive.

Many of us feel the whole “end game” could be changed by this turn of events. NATO members are actively engaged in supporting terrorist proxy forces in Syria and Iraq, in violation of it charter and a list of other international laws.

Citizens of countries are paying taxes to support activities done in their name that they would never approve of, yet consider themselves democracies, or pretend-a-democracies as the case may be.

We salute the good doctor for putting his words where his heart is. He is not ungrateful for what the Russians have done by any means…quite the opposite. Syria and Russia are going to win this together, or lose it together. Unless the resupply chain of the jjhadis is broken it is hard to see a positive conclusion to these hostilitiesJim W. Dean ]
