the voice of syria have some grinning while some just groan

Happened on something of a humorous nature the other day.
Apparently Syria has their version of Baghdad Bob.  Remember him?  Well, this version is female and a lot prettier, speaks perfect English and is a graduate of Oxford with a masters degree.  Article doesn’t say in what but it doesn’t matter for our purpose here. Must say though I am more impressed with her degree and looks then I am with the local rep. here from the Action on Climate change, who is about to attend university in Leeds for a degree in ... Sustainability. ? WTH?

But back to the subject. Syria.  I have a question for any of you in the USA. Are you folks getting a lot of coverage about the situation there? It’s 24/7 here or so it seems.  I am not defending Syria in any way but, in every case whether it Libya, Syria or any other state the west has issues with, when people gather to protest and usually riot, they are without exception suddenly Pro Democracy Advocates. And we are all cajoled into believing that BS. Well some of us just don’t buy that line.  And btw, things in Egypt will prove how freedom loving and democratic those folks are in a short time.  It’s reported that muzzies there have their knickers in a twist because Mr. and Mrs. Mouse (as in Mickey) have made an appearance in someone’s Twitter account dressed as muslims. So some group of freedom loving members of the ROP are calling for tongues to be cut off.

Well anyway ...........  Here’s someone called Comical Sally.  Ooh ... and she’s a redhead too.


‘Comical Sally’ returns to defend Syria

The Syrian government spokesman nicknamed “Comical Sally” for her attempts to defend the regime returned to British television two weeks after she was thought to have been fired.

Reem Haddad had disappeared from the air-waves after saying that refugees fleeing into Turkey were “visiting relatives”. She said: “It’s a bit like having a problem in your street, and your mum lives in the next street, so you go and visit your mum for a bit.”

A statement on a Syrian news website said she had been replaced as head of the department of international information. But on Sunday she reappeared, giving an interview to Sky Television in support of claims that many Syrian troops had been killed by armed gangs.

She quickly found herself in trouble again, though, saying she disputed the figure given by the opposition to the station for the number of protesters killed even though she could not give the government figure herself.

“The number that we have which I do not have because I don’t have an accurate number is different from the number that you have just quoted,” she said. “It’s different, but it’s not the number you gave me.”

Miss Haddad is the daughter of a former Syrian ambassador to West Germany, who is now head of the parliamentary foreign affairs committee. Her international upbringing accounts for her fluency in English, polished when she did a master’s degree at Oxford University, according to an official website.

Her fluency and loyalty made her an obvious choice to represent the regime’s view. But she also developed a tendency to become aggressive when pressed over her claims that eye-witness reports were not to be trusted, at one stage hanging up the telephone on John Humphrys, presenter of the BBC Radio Four Today Programme.

Some newspapers nicknamed her Comical Sally in memory of the official spokesman of Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq in 2003, Mohammad Al -Sahaff, who became known as “Comical Ali” for his desperate attempts to claim Iraq was winning the Gulf War.

SOURCE

Might have been Comical Ali here, but we called him Baghdad Bob as I recall.

btw ... Can’t fault her for hanging up the phone on that bombastic jerk, John Humphrys.  Most of his interviews sound more like an inquisition then an interview. He constantly interrupts the ppl he is asking questions of, he asks a question which takes him 20 minutes and then he answers it himself. He really is very much in love with his glorious self and the sound of his own voice.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
