Aleppo

Aleppo.

Dark shadow of fear lifted a year ago

Broken stones may be shattered

But you will heal and you will grow.

Aleppo

My heart lives in your souks

My blood beats with the rhythm of your streets.

Aleppo.

My breath is in your air

My eyes see your skies.

Aleppo.

  1. The 'official version,' unlike the evil Russian lie, is that St Obama freed 100,000 prisoners of Bush, jr from Camp Bucca and sent them to liberate Syria from the evil regime that not only controlled the country, but allowed the evil Russians to squat on military bases that belong to NATO under international law. All those prisoners in Camp Bucca swore to go to Syria and never return to the country where Camp Bucca was located, but some said their oath to the infidels was based on a division by Ss Sykes and Picot, saints they did not recognise, so an oath never to cross that line after going to Syria was not a binding oath. Those who violated that oath were a fortiori all criminal, jihadi terrorists. Those who took over Aleppo were all innocent, peaceful, pro-democracy activists. The evil Syrian, Russian, and Iranian regime killed 600,000 innocents in Aleppo and other parts of Syria, because they hate freedom and democracy (those good, innocent, pro-democracy activists in al-Nusrah and the ISL were, of course, shelling the parts of Aleppo held by the evil regime, since that was the only way they could bring freedom and democracy to Syria; they also had to destroy the ancient souk of Aleppo, where many sold items that were haram).

    In Iraq, since every man, woman, and child in Mosul was a criminal, jihadi terrorist, the 100,000 killed by Obama's and Trump's orders did not include a single innocent civilian.

    The US military did say that, of all those killed in Iraq and Raqqa, there might have been 50 - 100 who were not proven criminal, jihadi terrorists, and who might have been innocent. Liars who hate the US say the US killed at least 100,000 innocent civilians, counting as innocent many grandmothers and 6 month old babies, when it's obvious to every decent person that they were all terrorists.

    (So, very good poem.)

  2. Bill,
    Very nice my friend.
    I get so angry at the destruction that is being done by the country of my birth, 'Merikkka. What passes for our leaders seem to have no end to the devastation they are willing to do, in particular to people who have a nicer/darker tan than they have. Also, since 1945, they only attack nations that have either no, or at best, very, very limited means to doing any real harm to 'Merikkka. Yes, the country I was born in and still live in is run by a gang of damn cowards.
