by Ghassan Kadi If there was ever indeed a civil uprising in Syria, it would have had to be, by-and-large, in Idlib. Idlib is an impoverished region of Syria. It is located in the north-west, inland from the coastal Syrian Army stronghold of Lattakia, and south of Aleppo; Syria’s second largest city and economic hub. Being predominantly Sunni and poor, the combination made it a lucrative recruitment spot for the

by Ghassan Kadi As the news of the Russian military action in Syria intensifies and takes more rather affirmative steps, the rest of the world cannot help but to look with a mixed bag of emotions all the way from awe to gratitude, anxiety, disappointment, frustration or fear and many others in between. Diverse as they may be in their outlooks, all observers are united in their gasps of disbelief.
by Ghassan Kadi The recent speech of President Putin at the UNGA has shown the rest of the world the extent of Western lies and inefficiency. Moreover, the Russian military initiative in Syria that almost immediately followed the speech has left all enemies of Syria in a bind, confused, and not knowing what to do. In one moment, Foreign Secretary Kerry says that he wants to cooperate with Russia all
by Ghassan Kadi With the accelerating events in Syria over the last week or so, this concluding Part 4 had to be revised several times. The acceleration is two faceted; American and Russian-originated. On the American side, when American Foreign Secretary Kerry made a conclusive statement in the last few days saying that President Assad has to go, but the timing of his departure is negotiable, he formally confirmed that
by Ghassan Kadi With all the different components of the “Anti-Syrian Cocktail”, the most lethal is undoubtedly the USA. We should therefore take a deeper look at the military hopes and gambles that the USA took, in desperate attempts, to be able to bomb Syria in order to understand why those several attempts have failed for more than two decades. In Part 2, we saw how the USA was hoping
The Saker: I will begin with a historical question. Many years ago I had the privilege to work with a most interesting Syrian lawyer whose father had been an influential Syrian personality. Here is what this friend of mine told me one day: Arab nationalism in general, and Baathism in particular, was the creation of the European Masonic elites who used their local Masonic brethren to stir up various kinds
by Ghassan Kadi Before we move on describing and analyzing the events on the battleground in Syria and what has led to the current situation, we should insert in here a quick look at the events that culminated in the decision making of waging the “War On Syria”. After the infamous New World Order (NWO) came into existence following the demise of the Soviet Union, a global “order” that virtually
War On Syria; Not Quite According To Plan Part 1. The Islamist-American Love-Hate Quagmire; Facts And Myths:
by Ghassan Kadi There is a lot of myth about ISIS, its roots, and relationship with America. To unravel the mystery, we need to go back to some basics of human behaviour, more specifically, to basics of human behaviour of psychopaths and sociopaths. In order to understand the current impasse between ISIS and the USA, and to be able to assess if there is indeed an impasse at all, and
by Ghassan and Intibah Kadi The human tragedy in Syria is one thing, and the hypocritical manner in which the West is dealing with it is an absolute shamble. To begin with, it was the Western sphere of influence that destabilized four states in the region over the last two decades; namely Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. One may argue that Afghanistan had been a hotspot before the US-led invasion,

I am also happy to report that Kadi will now regularly write for the Saker blog and share his insights and analyses with us. I have also agreed with him to follow up today’s article with an
by Ghassan Kadi THE United States of America and the Soviet Union had equal footing in the Levant’s main crisis; namely the Arab-Israeli conflict in the 1950’s, 1960’s and the first half of the 70’s. Many, especially in the Arab camp, argue otherwise, and regard that American support for Israel had always been much stronger than any support the USSR had ever offered any Arab state, and to a large
