Columnist: Why Assad should remain in power in Syria
DailyMail.com’s Kate Hopkins: Forcing Assad to step down as Syria’s leader would force a power vacuum and that ‘we have to choose our monsters’ and focus on the real enemy – ISIS
- I’m a Christian who was born and raised in Iraq. I moved to the States back in 2010 and have been living in this lovely country ever since. One thing the people in the West need to understand is that dictators likes of Assad and Saddam MUST stay in power or all hell will break loose. Muslims in the Middle East hate the West and its ideals, persecute minorities, and flat out reject the idea of democracy. The ONLY way to keep those barbarians under control is to have a secular dictator laying the hammer down on them. Speaking of Syria, I lived in Syria for 6 months, and let me tell you, the country was about as a secular as a Middle Eastern country could get. Heck, my sister met and eventually married her American husband while he was working there. All I’m saying is that once Assad is gone, radicals will take over.
- If ISIS goes down, ISIS will take his place. I don’t know about you sheeps, but I like to have Assad in power in Syria, rather than ISIS. Our “liberal” (authoritarian) politicians believe, that the other rebel groups are not radical. But all the evidence proofs them wrong. The rebels are just (just in case) not as bad as ISIS, but they are islamists nonetheless. And the funny story is: Germany backed them with money and weapons. And who was part of this deal? The current german president Frank-Walter Steinmeier!
