Open Letter to President Putin

[ Editor’s Note: This came in Arabic and Gordon had to drop what he was doing on a late Saturday afternoon to put a crew to get this translated and published.
This is a passionate letter from a man who loves his country and put into words better that we could the concerns many have about why the resupplying of the Syrian insurgents was allowed to go on during the ceasefire to put them in the position to launch counter offenses after so much had been done to put them on the defensive.
Many of us feel the whole “end game” could be changed by this turn of events. NATO members are actively engaged in supporting terrorist proxy forces in Syria and Iraq, in violation of it charter and a list of other international laws.
Citizens of countries are paying taxes to support activities done in their name that they would never approve of, yet consider themselves democracies, or pretend-a-democracies as the case may be.
We salute the good doctor for putting his words where his heart is. He is not ungrateful for what the Russians have done by any means…quite the opposite. Syria and Russia are going to win this together, or lose it together. Unless the resupply chain of the jjhadis is broken it is hard to see a positive conclusion to these hostilities… Jim W. Dean ]
An Open Letter to President Putin and the Russian Military High Command
Dear loved ones! Each day new convoys of armored vehicles cross into Syria, other convoys, all part of internationally recognized terrorist organizations, move into battle, sustaining the siege of Aleppo. These armed terrorist convoys, easy targets for Russian Aerospace forces, move with total freedom, as though shielded from harm.
Why don’t Russian warplanes destroy them? Is Russia afraid of the feelings of Netanyahu (Jubair) (al Hamad) and those “cousins” who haunt the corridors of power in the Russian Foreign Ministry in Moscow? Russia must learn a sad lesson from America, a nation that knows that part of being a superpower is supporting friends and allies without judgement and demands. America stands by their “friends,” Israel,
Turkey, Saudi Arabia, asking no questions, making no demands, succumbing to no pressure, these are the actions of a superpower in this day and age. Why are there so many clearly wrong decisions, such as supporting the Syrian High Negotiation Committee’s demands in Darya? We all know this is an entirely military cantonment, a breeding ground for a terrorist army on Damascus’ flank, a city without a civilian population whatsoever.
My dear friends and brothers of Russia, please to not take the example of some within Syria’s corrupt system, those officers and officials that are but thieves, the children of prostitutes, or you will become like them and the war in Syria will be lost, as with Afghanistan and Yugoslavia. Russia will then never be able to find an ally outside her borders. It was the Empress Catherine the Great, in 1768, who warned “the Keys to the Kremlin are found in Damascus and Russia, if it remains a
power of the frozen north, will wither and die.”
If Moscow is to heed the warning of Catherine, the Sukhoi storm that had swept through the terrorists ranks like a scythe would be unleashed again lest the Syrian War, lost to sloth, plotting and inaction, might find itself at the gates of Moscow, a gift from the Wahhabi’s.
The spirit that made Russia victorious after the Second World War, the spirt that help the great Russian people arise to victory will come to naught if the current policy of consulting the Zionists who brought down the great homeland in 1991 continues. Russia will be erased from the South, forgotten in Libya, Iraq, Egypt, forgotten in Yugoslavia with Montenegro joining NATO, surrounded, plagued, isolated and “sanctioned.”
When Russia came to Syria with an air force that shook the world, when Russia plunged into battle, proving not only weapons but courage and resolve as well, the Arab kingdoms shuddered. With the shock the attack came not only a moral lesson but something more, the proven capability of Russian arms and a renewal of Russia as a valued supplier for weapons to offset dependence on America.
Why did you stop? The Battle of Battles, the relief of Aleppo, was within reach. Why did you stop in Eastern Ghouta, in Deraa, in Latakia or the Homs countryside? Why? Why did you give the terrorist time to regroup, to gain breath, to arm and reorganize themselves while the convoys your satellites and surveillance planes track day and night flow from Joran and Turkey? Why have you chosen not to see the threat and duplicity of the Kurds, allied with America to Balkanize Syria while Barzani, the stooge of Erdogan, does the same to Iraq?
Why do you sit at the table with your enemies, allowing talk of “Federation” and the dismemberment of
Syria, something categorically rejected by the Syrian people? These people, the Syrian people, are not only your brothers in arms, but without them Russia would lose her foothold on the Mediterranean. As Crimea is Russia, all that stand to prevent the Black Sea from becoming an American lake, so Syria stands as well, as Catherine the Great reminds us all:
“the Keys to the Kremlin are found in Damascus and Russia, if it remains a power of the frozen north, will wither and die.”
Respectfully Dr Bassam Habib Barakat
