Gulf countries drinking the blood of Syrians

in response to reader comment: Sep. 29 fakes part of psychological war

Come on Mr. Pipes, ... Suppose for the sake of argument that everything happened as described, do you think for one moment that the Syrian government would need to justify itself by stating (in writing!) to its subordinate offices that they should kill the pilots 'because of orders of Moscow'! Or that the Syrian government would even consider sending those valuable POW's to Hezbollah in Lebanon, and ask its subordinates (in writing!) to study this 'idea', etc.! As their terrorist proxies and foreign jihadis are losing in Syria, Gulf countries need to keep the flame of their masses' hatred going against Russia and Hezbollah etc. They're even targeting Western opinions by providing English versions

. The beauty of fakes comes when they are not easily spotted, this one is flagrant. I bet it comes straight from the media office of Saudi intelligence, because it's Al-Arabiya. Al-Jazeera also have more than a fair share of fakes, Qatar even faked old documents of ownership in its dispute over islands with Bahrain and had the insolence of presenting these fakes to the International Court.
