Quick (haha - not!) recap on Syria: the big bad dictator of Syria, a Mr. Assad, has ruled the country with an iron hand.
Emphasis on the past tense of the word "ruled".
Currently, he and his supporters are fighting a desperate fight to hold on.
What is curious is that the man has supporters, and that so many are willing to die for that regime.
Why is that?
To understand that, we need to see whom whom they are fighting.
A joyful celebration in a public square in a town to the delight of the gathered local people:
Cool guys, eh?
Guardian: Free Syrian Army rebels defect to Islamist group Jabhat al-Nusra:
Syria's main armed opposition group, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), is losing fighters and capabilities to Jabhat al-Nusra, an Islamist organisation with links to al-Qaida that is emerging as the best-equipped, financed and motivated force fighting Bashar al-Assad's regime.Snip.
Ideology is another powerful factor. "Fighters are heading to al-Nusra because of its Islamic doctrine, sincerity, good funding and advanced weapons," said Abu Islam of the FSA's al-Tawhid brigade in Aleppo. "My colleague who was fighting with the FSA's Ahrar Suriya asked me: 'I'm fighting with Ahrar Suriya brigade, but I want to know if I get killed in a battle, am I going to be considered as a martyr or not?' It did not take him long to quit FSA and join al-Nusra. He asked for a sniper rifle and got one immediately."France24: Al Qaeda wing says Syria's al-Nusra is part of network;
Al-Qaeda's front group in Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq, acknowledged on Tuesday that Al-Nusra Front, a jihadist group fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, was part of its network.
The statement in an audio message posted on jihadist forums was the first confirmation of widespread suspicions among analysts and officials of links between the two groups, both of which are labelled "terrorist" organisations by Washington.
The new organisation will be called the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant and its Syrian branch will be headed by Abu Mohammed al-Jolani, the network's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi said.
Officially, Al-Nusra was established in January 2012, according to a video statement declaring its creation, and shares several commonalities with its Iraqi counterpart.
Both groups have achieved notoriety for their use of suicide attacks and car bombs, as opposed to the more conventional fighting methods of other militant and rebel groups in Iraq and Syria.
Like Al-Qaeda in Iraq, Al-Nusra Front has a substantial portion of foreign fighters among its ranks, including Iraqis, Palestinians and other Arabs. Fighters from central Asia, east Africa and eastern Europe have also joined.
And Baghdadi also confirmed that the Iraqi branch had helped its Syrian counterpart by contributing funds and training, as well as transferring experienced fighters.Interesting - an exceedingly well funded, well supplied and well armed terrorist group, which is a terrorist organization standing against everything the West (well, at least its people, not the West's leadership and
elites) stand for.
This is moslem extremism - the real deal, with cars that go boom and bombs that spray nails and other things in crowds of people - women and children included.
Oh, and they also, apparently, eat hearts of the enemy dead:
Who supplies them? There is (was) a ban on weapons to Syria until our glorious leadership decided to let the spigot go - you see, Assad and his boys were not doing that badly against the terrorists fighting them.
You want a sniper rifle, friend? Here, take it - and as much ammunition as you want. Have a walkie talkie, food, water, grenades, combat webbing... Unlike the more normal, less jihadi Free Syrian Army, the crazies, foreign jihadi fighters have no problems with weapons and combat supplies.
The Time Magazine interview with a terrorist Public Relations Specialist from al-Nusra has claimed it is "foreign donors" who give them funding.
Apparently, the largesse of weapons and monies and supplies is rather large, so large that fighters from the Free Syrian Army are defecting to the jihadis to get weapons.
Now, these are Sunni terrorists - can you thing of any nation or nations in the region who are also Sunni and have a history of providing support to terrorists?
*Cough* Saudi Arabia, Quatar *cough*.
Telegraph: Libya’s new rulers offer weapons to Syrian rebels, from 2011 :
At the meeting, which was held in Istanbul and included Turkish officials, the Syrians requested "assistance" from the Libyan representatives and were offered arms, and potentially volunteers.
"There is something being planned to send weapons and even Libyan fighters to Syria," said a Libyan source, speaking on condition of anonymity. "There is a military intervention on the way. Within a few weeks you will see."
The Telegraph has also learned that preliminary discussions about arms supplies took place when members of the Syrian National Council [SNC] – the country's main opposition movement – visited Libya earlier this month.
"The Libyans are offering money, training and weapons to the Syrian National Council," added Wisam Taris, a human rights campaigner with links to the SNC.
Now that you understand that the "rebels" fighting the evil, odious regime of a Mr. Assad, are foreign born (not Syrian) terrorist dregs from Iraq, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Libya, etc etc etc....
From the interview, the PR specialist:
Minorities, he said, had nothing to fear from such a state. “The Prophet, peace be upon him, had a Jewish neighbor,” he said. “Whoever has not oppressed, or participated in the harming of the people, his rights are his rights and his duties are his duties.” But those who had blood on their hands, whether minorities or not, would be shown no mercy. Abu Adnan defended several recent videos including one of a member of Jabhat al-Nusra gunning down unarmed regime loyalists. “We detained them, lined them up and killed them. They were fighters fighting us. So this is terrorism, but we forget that there is an entire state that has terrorized people for 40 years?” he said.Yeah, religious minorities have nooooooooothing to fear from those guys.
It's just that the enemies will be shot (and their hearts eaten?) and the rest will be cowed, and will have duties in the new, fantastic, Sharia state. Hooray, I say.
But is it just the individual Saudi princes splurging a few million here and there to the terrorists?
Why.... no, of course not.
My favorite blogger babe, the American intelligence veteran Sibel Edmonds (who, by the by, as an American-Iranian woman, is super hot, like most Iranian and Iranian ancestry women I have had the pleasure to meet, the idiots from the BRAVO network being the exceptions):
I have been closely following the situation and events in Syria as they unfold. In doing so I totally bypass what’s being misreported by the US mainstream media-Washington Post, New York Times, and the like. I also pass on anything dished out by the Rockefeller-Soros-Carnegie connected popular quasi alternatives. Instead I rely on a few truly alternative news sources, my own sources in the area (let’s call it the vicinity), and my current and former government insiders. As you may expect I end up with facts and a picture completely different than the popular marketing products fed to our public by the mainstream media and quasi sources.
I want to bring to your attention a crucial case (operation) largely blacked out or significantly lightened up by the popular press. Here is the sanitized version, twisted, and reported by the mainstream.
Chief military defector in Turkey denies training troops in Syria
Head of Syrian military defectors has denied a news report that he crossed the border from Turkey to Syria to command troops loyal to the opposition force called the Free Syrian Army.
“News reports that appeared on a number of Internet sites that I had crossed into Syria to command troops there are false. I am in Turkey at the moment in a safe place,” Col. Riad Al Assad told the Anadolu Agency on Tuesday. Al Assad said an estimated 15 thousand Syrian soldiers had deserted and joined the Free Syrian Army to fight against the Damascus regime.
“Four hundred troops quit the Syrian army yesterday alone. Last week, 15 officers including colonels have pledged their allegiance. The Syrian regime is scared of the Free Syrian Army now,” Al Assad said.”The fall of the Syrian regime is unavoidable.”
First, let me tell you right off the bat: the above article is in the ‘lightened up’ category. While the article doesn’t provide its own false information, it does showcase a main premise based on a subject who is in fact issuing a false denial. Further, the article purposefully doesn’t delve into why and how Col. Riad Al Assad ended up in Turkey, and what he’s been doing there.
Here is another brief mainstream paragraph on Col. Al Assad:
Dissident colonel Riad al-Asaad, organising defectors in Syria from his new base in southern Turkey, denied government allegations that adjacent states were allowing arms smuggling into Syria. “Not a single bullet” had been smuggled from abroad, he told Al Jazeera television.
Again, as in the previous piece, this article stops short purposefully. It doesn’t get into logical questions such as: What exactly is ‘organizing defectors’? How do you organize defectors in Syria from across the border? Is it a coincidence that his HQ is right inside the US Incirlik Base in Adana, Turkey?
You see, those alternative news and blog sites put down by the first cited article had it exactly right. Col. Riad al-Assad has been in Turkey, working with U.S. & NATO, right inside the US Incirlik Base in Turkey, to do exactly what he vehemently denies: smuggle US weapons into Syria, participate in US psychological and information warfare inside Syria as the middle-man whom Syrian protesters tend to trust, and help with funneling intelligence and military operators across the border and night-time drop offs by air.
The joint US-NATO secret training camp in the US air force base in Incirlik, Turkey, began operations in April- May 2011 to organize and expand the dissident base in Syria. Since then, in addition to Col. Riad al-Assad, several other high-ranking Syrian military and intelligence officials have been added to operations’ headquarters in the US base. Weekly weapons smuggling operations have been carried out with full NATO-US participation since last May. The HQ also includes an information warfare division where US-NATO crafted communications are directed to dissidents in Syria via the core group of Syrian military and Intelligence defectors.
So who funds the "rebels"?
Sunni extremists - Saudi and Quatari regimes and... us.
Syrian rebels’ backers, meeting in Qatar, agree to send weapons (06/2013):
Despite offering a series of pledges of coordination and increased aid in recent months, the rebels’ backers have been divided and inconsistent in acting on them. But officials insisted the new pledge was firm and specific in terms of both quality and quantity of supplies.
“Something different happened today,” Secretary of State John F. Kerry said after a four-hour meeting of foreign ministers from 11 Western and Middle Eastern governments. Because of Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons and the large-scale intervention of Hezbollah and Iranian militia fighters in Syria’s civil war, he said, “we have decided that we have no choice . . . but to provide greater assistance.”
Although the rebels have been receiving arms from Persian Gulf nations, reportedly including a recent influx of surface-to-air missiles from Libya via Qatar, officials said the Doha decision will ensure a continuous, coordinated flow and procedures to ensure the weapons will be kept from Islamic militants. Officials from participating governments spoke about their closed-door discussions here and in other recent talks on the condition of anonymity.
A European official described Saturday’s decision as a “collective answer” to desperate appeals from Gen. Salim Idriss, head of the opposition’s Supreme Military Council, in the wake of recent rebel defeats.
So now, you can take an intelligent guess who is fighting for the regime of a Mr. Assad.
Or rather, fighting for their own survival.
Anybody who opposed the foreign jihadists taking over their country - this includes ALL the religious minorities who are not too taken with the Sharia law.
You see, the evil, odious Mr. Assad was (and is) a SECULAR ruler, meaning he is closer to the European model of government (with women not being forced to wear burkas 24/7, and no eating of hearts, either, as far as I know).
The "rebels" from Iraq, Chechnya, Saudi, CIA and Quatari liasion officers... are fighting for Sharia law, for a terrorist state, literally for al-Kaida if you believe in the name.
In this instance, our money and support, meaning both American and Western European, is given wholesale to the terrorists.
A bewildered Putin was giving his best impression of a What. The. Fuck internet meme:
Putin Questions Why West Would Arm Syrian Rebels:
Russian President Vladimir Putin is warning the West to be careful in arming Syrian rebels.
Arriving in London Sunday on his way to the G8 summit in Northern Ireland, Putin asked why it is necessary to arm those who he says tear open their enemies and eat their organs. He was referring to a recent video showing a rebel fighter appearing to cut into a dead Syrian soldier and biting his heart.
Putin says this has nothing to do with European humanitarian values.No shit. We are getting closer as to whom this shit sandwich benefits.... hint: it is not Europeans (nor us, Americans).
The United States said last week it has proof Syria has used chemical weapons and says it will send direct military aid to the rebels.Oh.
Come to think of it, the article about the great super dooper supporters of the Syrian Free Army meeting in Quatar, chaperoned by John Kerry, US Secretary of State, mentioned that the reason why the ban on weapons to the "rebels" was being lifted was the fact, FACT I SAY, that the odious Assad regime has used chemical weapons, and had nothing to do with the
A European official described Saturday’s decision as a “collective answer” to desperate appeals from Gen. Salim Idriss, head of the opposition’s Supreme Military Council, in the wake of recent rebel defeats.Yep, it's because of chemical weapons, yep yep yep.
This is the current, June 2013 story re: chemical weapons:
THE head of a UN human rights investigation on Syria said it was still impossible to tell for sure who has used chemical weapons in the country's devastating conflict.
Paulo Pinheiro, chairman of the investigation committee, said he would not comment on evidence sent by the United States, Britain and France to UN experts which they say shows Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces have used chemical arms.
"We are not able to say who has used chemical agents or chemical weapons and we are very much worried about the chain of custody of the substances," Pinheiro told reporters after an informal meeting with UN Security Council ambassadors.However, the story has changed a tiny little bit, just a teeeeeeeensy liiiiiiiitle biiiiiiiiit, in a month's time:
Reuters:U.N. has testimony that Syrian rebels used sarin gas: investigator (May 5, 2013):
(Reuters) - U.N. human rights investigators have gathered testimony from casualties of Syria's civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin, one of the lead investigators said on Sunday.
The United Nations independent commission of inquiry on Syria has not yet seen evidence of government forces having used chemical weapons, which are banned under international law, said commission member Carla Del Ponte.
"Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals and, according to their report of last week which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated," Del Ponte said in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.
"This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities," she added, speaking in Italian.
Del Ponte, a former Swiss attorney-general who also served as prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, gave no details as to when or where sarin may have been used.
The Geneva-based inquiry into war crimes and other human rights violations is separate from an investigation of the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria instigated by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, which has since stalled.As you can see, the story went from "rebels used chemical weapons" to "the odious, evil Assad regime used chemical weapons", with the (with absolutely no pressure from the United States regime, I mean democracy) applied.
So, finally, who are the people who fight a heroic last stand against the jihadi terrorists?
Anybody who ISN'T a jihadi terrorist.
They are choosing a lesser evil.
The Alawites, a rather curious sect that there's a shit ton of in the Middle East say, like, the Druze - you see, the Middle East is not just the lovely specimens of Mecca bowing, asses in the air folks - there are many upon many religious minorities in the region - Alawites, Druze, Bahai...
The super jewish NPR reports:
Recent reports on the Syrian civil war depict a messy conflict, with terror and atrocity on both sides. The New York Times captured this in a story yesterday concerning the Alawite people, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s own sect.
An April 2013 special report by the U.S. Comission on International Religious Freedom noted,The jihadi terrorists have a "if you're not with us, you're against us" mindset, uniting those who could and would be neutral in the conflict on the side of the Assad regime.
“Many minority religious communities have tried to stay neutral in the conflict, but opposition forces increasingly see their non-alignment, or perceived non-alignment, as support for the al-Assad regime. Minority religious communities thus have been forced by circumstances to take a position either in favor of the al-Assad regime, which historically provided them some religious freedom protections, or in favor of the uncertainties of the opposition. As these sectarian fissures deepen, it is increasingly likely that religious communities will be targeted not for their political allegiances, but solely for their religious affiliation.”
That is a rather dumb position, prolonging the conflict and multiplying the bloodshed, but hey, first, these are fanatical religious jihadi zealots and that means that they are NOT fighting for freedom from Assad, but for a religious Sharia state with the non-Sunni ethnically cleansed.
Fortunately, the "if you're not with us, you're against us" is only used by either retarded leaders, or zealous fanatical religious nuts, and we in the West are blessed with clear thinking, rational leaders who have our own welfare at heart.
As to the Christian minority in the Middle East...
Well, thanks to America's efforts, they are fucked.
Alawites are not the only minority feeling fearful and trapped. The aforementioned U.S. Commission reported, “the Christian population of the city of Homs—approximately 160,000—has almost entirely fled for safety, with reports suggesting that only 1,000 Christians remain.”
As Andrew Doran noted in an article for The American Conservative in May, many Christians “fled [Iraq] to the relative freedom and tolerance of Syria, only to find themselves again fleeing persecution, often hunted by Syria’s rebels…
The Obama administration, bewilderingly, has chosen to support Syria’s rebel groups without any apparent thought of the consequences.” Two Syrian Orthodox bishops were kidnapped by an unknown party on April 22, and although the opposition has reported they are “in good health,” there is no actual news on their whereabouts.
Aliaa Ali also speculated on fears inherent in the toppling of Assad: “Yes, there have been atrocities… But you have to ask yourself: What will happen if Bashar falls? That’s why I believe victory is the only option. If Bashar falls, Syria falls. And then we, here, will all be in the niqab, or we will be dead.”So there you have it.
We - America, United Kingdom, the rest of the European lap dogs of Washington - are supporting jihadi terrorists fighting to impose a Sharia state on a formerly secular (non-islamist) country.
We are giving money to people whose aim is to ethnically cleanse the country.
We are giving money, weapons, supplies to jihadis who are fighting Christians, for fucks sake.
Don't you care, Americans?
Don't you care, American Christians?
Of course not.
Football and hockey and baseball and niggerball is on TV, and soon it will be time to celebrate 4th of July, in which we celebrate rich elite tricking some riff raff to die for them so they wouldn't have to pay taxes and also, steal a country wholesale - best covert and propaganda op ever.
It's been that way forever - learning about Valley Forge, about how American troops were starving and freezing to death in tents in a very severe winter, while the officers partied it up in houses with women, opened my eyes to how this country has been setup and how it operated from the get go.
The fact that the rich guys then did not pay the veterans of the Revolutionary War is the fucking icing.
It's been like that since the inception.
So why should I expect now that things would be different now?
Why should you?
We have established that America is engaged in supporting terrorists with formerly somewhat covert, and now completely open support: with money, food, combat supplies, ammo, weapons (including surface to air missiles).
We are siding with the terrorist jihadis killing Christians.
Fancy that, America.
And why are we doing this?
Why is America acting this way? The UK?
It is not in their interests. It is not in our interest. Putin was, as usual, right.
I have listed the link before, but what the hell, this all comes together.
See the forest for the trees, folks.
Go there, folks.
November 1978-February 1979: Some US Officials Want to Support Radical Muslims to Contain Soviet Union
In December 1978, President Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski says, “An arc of crisis stretches along the shores of the Indian Ocean, with fragile social and political structures in a region of vital importance to us threatened with fragmentation. The resulting political chaos could well be filled by elements hostile to our values and sympathetic to our adversaries.”
There is widespread discontent and rioting in Iran at the time. State Department official Henry Precht will later recall that Brzezinski had the idea “that Islamic forces could be used against the Soviet Union. The theory was, there was an arc of crisis, and so an arc of Islam could be mobilized to contain the Soviets.”
Even then, even then, the plan was to destabilize the Middle East.
The excuse then was that this was an act against the Soviet Union, as the destabilization would have a ripple effect and impact the then existing Soviet Union.
The Shah will later comment in exile, “I did not know it then, perhaps I did not want to know? But it is clear to me now that the Americans wanted me out. Clearly this is what the human rights advocates in the State Department wanted. What was I to make of the Administration’s sudden decision to call former Under Secretary of State George Ball to the White House as an adviser on Iran? Ball was among those Americans who wanted to abandon me and ultimately my country.
1990-1991: Chalabi Furthers Ties with US Neoconservatives
Ahmed Chalabi, an Iraqi exile fleeing charges of embezzlement from his former bank in Jordan (see August 2, 1989 and April 9, 1992), continues forging ties with American neoconservatives (see January 30, 2001 and 1985). Chalabi forms a friendship with neoconservative academic Bernard Lewis, who asks his colleagues inside the Bush administration, including Pentagon aide Zalmay Khalilzad, to help boost Chalabi’s profile inside the administration. Chalabi also meets neoconservative General Wayne Downing while Downing is in command of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) at Fort Bragg, North CarolinaFunny how that works.
Now it is not the Soviet Union, but somehow, the plan to destabilize the Middle East region must go ahead - and any excuse and action is seized upon to do it.
Why? (Readers of this blog already have an inkling of the Why? and also, the important Who benefits?).
Autumn 1992: Influential Neoconservative Academic Advocates Breaking Up Middle Eastern Countries, Including Iraq
Princeton University professor Bernard Lewis publishes an article in the influential journal Foreign Affairs called “Rethinking the Middle East.” In it, he advocates a policy he calls “Lebanonization.” He says, “[A] possibility, which could even be precipitated by [Islamic] fundamentalism, is what has late been fashionable to call ‘Lebanonization.’
Most of the states of the Middle East—Egypt is an obvious exception—are of recent and artificial construction and are vulnerable to such a process. If the central power is sufficiently weakened, there is no real civil society to hold the polity together, no real sense of common identity.… Then state then disintegrates—as happened in Lebanon—into a chaos of squabbling, feuding, fighting sects, tribes, regions, and parties.”
Lewis, a British Jew, is well known as a longtime supporter of the Israeli right wing.
I hope now it is all clear to you, n'est-ce pas?
This was the plan all along, to destabilize the Middle East, to make the Sunni-Shia conflict rage in the Arab countries, to "Lebanonize" all these nations which are not friendly to Israel.
And of course, why would the Jews do it, if they have idiot goyim to do it for them, with OUR MONEY, OUR BLOOD, OUR LIVES?
THAT is why America and the Western "democracies" are supporting people who want to bring Medieval Sharia law into a formerly secular nation of Syria, that is why we are giving money, combat supplies, walkie talkies, webbing, ammunition, personal weapons and blitzing your TV airwaves with stories about how evil Assad is and how we must help the "Syrian" rebels.
The more carnage there is, the more the Grand Plan of Mr. Lewis proceeds apiece.
And if Christians in Iraq, who fled the "lebanonization" in Iraq, suffer again the same ethnic cleansing and massacres in Syria - well, why should Jews care about Christians?
And "our" elites - well, they are not "our" - they are THEIR elites, paid for and owned.
Obama, Bush, Clinton - there is no difference.
Police state advances, our freedoms are GONE, our government is OPENLY assassinating American reporters...
But disorder and chaos in the Middle East - making those countries into unstable, fighting for scraps, with no time to take stock of things and to think on what's going on - like a hamster on a wheel...
Making a country unstable is in the interests of the elites - homogeneity is bad business.
An unstable country, with people fighting for scraps at the bottom, leaves one uncertain of the immediate future and too busy to notice certain things.
Certain facts - such as why are all the Hollywood moguls, the majority of our top CEO's, the members of the FED all Jewish?
Why, if this was a country of one racial group, say, all Chinese people, one would not fail to notice if the people at the top of every institution that matters and calls the shots is Jewish - black clowns in front of the TV notwithstanding, and the old men in Congress, on their endless prostitute/child sex and coke binges, being even more obvious as the pathetic yes men/front men.
But fortunately we are not a one people - we are african, Russian, Bulgarian, Italian, Polish, Czech, German, somalian dash Americans.
Not Americans - dash Americans.
But due to the internet, truth has a way of slipping out, and that internet is very dangerous business indeed to not-our elites and their grand plans - for the Middle East, and for us.
That is why in my neighborhood in the Midwest we have hundreds, if not thousands, of fresh new Somalis.
That is why, in this time of record (officially unacknowledged) unemployment in this country, the politicians work extremely hard to bring in tens of millions of Mexicans for lower paid physical jobs and hundreds of thousands of H1B Indians to replace the upper middle class in IT, medical and other positions.
Because, my dear fat cheetoh eating Americans whose sons die for Israel, "lebanonization" is not just for the Middle East.
It is for us, also.
Because the not-our elites do not want the Weimar republic fiasco to happen again - when a society is NOT multicultural, bad things happen to elites who do not rule people with the (at least some) people's interests at heart.
Read about the Weimar Republic on Rense (again if you already did - it is a good read).
Realize that we, now, yes, we are living right now in a Weimar Republic, with our overlords ruling over us and controlling the cabarets, mass media, porno, monitoring mass communication, whorehouses - just like in Weimar period Germany.
Just like in Weimar Republic, the not-our elites control all (with some frontmen clowns), there is a complete lack of morality and failure of common sense laws and total destruction of the concept of ethics...
We all know how the Weimar period ended - people got fed up with living in despair, total lack of morality and ethics society with "cabarets" and bordellos and red light districts and there was a people's revolution (which ended rather badly for all concerned, but especially for my people - no, not Americans, the Polish people).
The Jews, being not too stupid, again got control of a superpower - they are in total control.
But they do not want another Weimar.
Hence, "lebanonization" - and not just in the Middle East.
For us, too.
For the entire world.
