How about extremist Hindu Government supports muslim majority dictator and helps in building their nation with their seditious agenda through scholarships and jobs

FFS I can't still believe that any positive story is spun as a negative one by reddit diplomats

Syria is still unable to rebuild basic infrastructure because of western sanctions. This is good for the people.


Ceratisa t1_j2eygp7 wrote

Syria is under sanction because it did stuff like use chemical weapons on its people


Startrail_wanderer t1_j2eyxa1 wrote

So being under sanctions means humanitarian aid needs to be denied??

This isn’t humanitarian aid, lol


Startrail_wanderer t1_j2f5rw0 wrote

Read the article, maybe?

> India has offered lines of credit worth USD 280 million to Syria for building a power plant and a steel plant in the country.

Loans are not humanitarian aid lol


Startrail_wanderer t1_j2f6ynh wrote

>She also said that India has been extending humanitarian, technical and developmental assistance to Syria through bilateral and multilateral channels. Consignments of food and medicines have been supplied to Syria from time to time, including during the pandemic.

Hiding on the technicalities are we?

Other sources Humanitarian aid to Syria

The article is about India loaning money for steel and energy production. It wasn’t about other humanitarian aid.

You’re flailing.

The previous power plants, and steel mills, by the way, were previously destroyed by the current regime while attempting to stay in power.

Because they are evil fascists that the current government of India is propping up with foreign money?


Reselects420 t1_j2fqzyl wrote

Why did they destroy the power plants and steel mills? What did that do?

It's a civil war, my dude, the government has been bombing anywhere there's resistance.

There was another nuclear reactor that was breeding fissile material that was destroyed by the Israeli air force.

Joudco's steel plant specifically was destroyed by the regime because "rebels" were "hiding" there.

And those same people are suffering today because they can’t get building material to fix their broken shit.

What exactly do you think sanctions do? Who do you think they ultimately affect?

The unquestionable faith some people have on their government and the media is quite astounding. Now, I can't say for sure whether he used chemical weapons, but from past experiences, it's imperative to say that any narrative coming out of the US government needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

The US government and media have been using the same old playbook of slapping human rights accusations, WMDs, chemical weapons, genocide etc. on countries it wants to toe their line.

Maybe you should also try to check what Assad has to say about it in his interviews. Just get the views from both sides.

Last time I checked there were women walking on the streets of Damascus without forced veils and without accompanied by a male. By removing Assad from Syria (one of the few secular ME countries) you're probably gonna bring ISIS there. Then it will become Afghanistan 2.0 but with much more deadlier ISIS.

Last time I checked Damascus was a closely-protected jewel while Assad was dropping chlorine bombs on his less desirable cities.


MacronTheNecromancer t1_j2fm4vu wrote

You need to double check then cause one of the chemical attacks was in a Damascus neighborhood

Oh dang. Yeah, he probably shouldn't do that. Lame.
